Lip enhancement is achieved by injecting Dermal Filler into the lip to enhance size, shape or borders. Lip Rejuvenation involves injecting dermal filler into the lips to refresh them. This procedure can be performed on older lips that have thinned out or developed lines within or around the lips and finally to rehydrate tired looking lips.
Gone are the days when lip enhancement meant a duck bill or trout pout. At Jillian Baillie Aesthetics we prefer a natural enhancement that will leave you with fuller lips that look just like you were born with them!
Dermal Filler is injected into the lips in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. Local anaesthetic cream or dental blocks may be administered for increased comfort.
Once injected, the gel plumps and lifts the skin gently to replace collagen that has been lost by the natural ageing process. Semi permanent fillers work by creating an internal framework (or scaffolding) on which new collagen and elastin can attach creating the structure, tone and firmness for a more youthful appearance. Movement and sensation are not affected – your lips and skin will look and feel soft and natural.
There is a large variety of fillers available and this is why the consultation process is really important. Jillian Baillie Aesthetics only uses proven and tested fillers. Dermal lip fillers are biodegradable and most are based on substances naturally occurring within the human body. As they are found naturally in human cells, dermal fillers are well tolerated and there is no need for allergy testing although the dermal fillers have been used for many years they should not be used in pregnancy, lactating mothers and other medical conditions. It is very important to tell your cosmetic practitioner if you have health problems or on any medication prior to treatment.
Dermal Fillers usually lasts between 6 to 9 months, depending on skin type, lifestyle and skin maintenance. Some longer acting Dermal Fillers can last between 9 to 18 months.
Side-effects of Dermal Filling may include some swelling, redness and occasional bruising. This will disappear within a couple of days although occasional severe bruising can last up to 10-14 days. Most people resume their daily routine immediately after treatment some more severe side-effects, such as severe bruising and infection, can prevent you from resuming your normal duties for 2-4 weeks.
