Lip fillers are the most popular type of dermal filler and are taking over the world, let alone the aesthetics world! Lip fillers are a non-surgical procedure that alters the appearance of lips by increasing volume, improving the shape and structure and giving you fuller plumper lips!
There are many types of different dermal fillers that can be injected in your lips and around your mouth and at Facetherapy NI we only use fillers that are specially formulated for lips and that contain hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally within our skin and joints and helps skin with volume and hydration.
As we age, production of hyaluronic acid slows down giving skin a hollowed-out, creped look. Dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm® and Volift®, are injected in small controlled doses just under the surface of the skin of the area to be treated. This fills out the sunken areas and lines to give a smoother, firmer and more refreshed appearance. And, of course, a fuller more youthful pout!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?
Results are almost instant! A little bruising and swelling are to be expected but, in most cases, this subsides within around 72 hours. Depending on the desired look, results can be natural with a subtle difference or plumper, pillowy pout can be achieved if you want an Instagram worthy “Kylie Jenner lip”. Results can last from 6 to 24 months (depending on the filler selected).
For anyone considering this treatment, at Facetherapy NI we offer free consultations. During a consultation, we take time to understand what our client really wants and the desired outcome. The different range of fillers would be discussed and what to expect in terms of any minor discomfort or slight bruising/swelling would be also be explained. Before and after photographs of previous clients will be shown and the client would be reassured of the highest level of professional care and safety standards that are upheld at Facetherapy NI as well as benefiting from my years of professional experience and expertise.
