What is lip enhancement?

Lip enhancement with fillers is an effective, safe, non-surgical treatment to improve the shape and plumpness of the lips. As we age, our lips tend to lose volume. Lips may appear thinner, flatter and smaller, less plump and even become drier. Wrinkles may appear around the mouth. Injections of dermal fillers can add fullness and height to the lips, define the cupid’s bow and smooth lines around the mouth. Expert injections of filler can even reverse the ‘sad’ expression caused by lips than turn downwards at the corners.

Mr Olivier Amar uses advanced lip fillers containing a fluid, reversible and absorbable form of pure hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of healthy, youthful skin.

Why should you consider lip enhancement?

Some women are born with thin lips. In others, lips lose volume with age. If your lips are smaller and flatter than you’d like, or if the lip border or cupid’s bow has become blurred, then lip fillers may help restore the beauty and structure of your lips.

My patients tell me their lips have become thinner, but they are afraid of having an overdone pout. Whether you have wrinkles above your lips, downturned corners of your mouth or simply want to achieve a fuller, more youthful look, lip fillers offer a way to enhance your lips that will look discreet and natural, enabling you to feel confident in your personal, professional and social life.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE TREATMENT?

For your safety, Mr Olivier Amar personally examines every patient and takes a medical history before considering the correct course of treatment for them. If fillers are the right treatment for you, he can apply numbing cream or use filler mixed with a numbing substance (Lidocaine) before carefully and delicately injecting an appropriate filler to achieve your desired result.

HOW LONG DOES lip filler injections LAST?

Hyaluronic acid fillers are naturally and safely reabsorbed by the body over time. The absorption rate depends on factors including the concentration and type of filler used and the patient’s own metabolism. HA fillers can last between a few months to a year.

Additional injections will be required periodically, generally within 6-12 months to maintain optimal results.

WHEN WILL I SEE THE RESULTS OF lip filler injections?

You will see results immediately, though there may be some initial swelling.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR lip filler injections TREATMENT?

It is best to arrive at your appointment with your skin as best prepared for your dermal filler treatment as it can be. This would ideally include not drinking alcohol for 2-3 days prior to your appointment to lessen the risk of bleeding and bruising, as well as having had plenty of rest the night before your treatment to ensure you arrive feeling calm and relaxed.

It is also advised that you do not consume ibuprofen and aspirin for 1 week prior to your appointment as these can also thin your blood making bruising more likely.
