Are you considering having lip fillers? If so, in this article, you’re about to learn all you need to know about this procedure, as well as where to find us (if you’re in Southport or Liverpool).
Lip fillers, also known as dermal fillers, are a lip enhancement beauty treatment. Similar to a facial filler, which is an anti wrinkle treatment designed to fill in wrinkles in order to restore – to a degree – the appearance of youth or improve facial aesthetics without resorting to surgery, a lip filler is also a beauty treatment designed to enhance the aesthetic look of a person’s lips.
Lip augmentation treatments are relatively simple and can be carried out by dental professionals such as cosmetic dentists. In fact, we ourselves carry out these types of aesthetic treatments at our Southport clinic in Eastbank Street and our Liverpool clinics in Rodney Street and Allerton Road.
So why invest in dermal fillers?
Naturally, people choose cosmetic treatments for a varied number of reasons, but generally they choose to undergo treatment to improve or enhance something, whether it’s dental hygiene or facial aesthetics.
The truth is that a great smile can give a great first impression in both business and personal settings. Many people wish to achieve a certain physical appearance that they feel is aligned with whom they want to be or how they want to project themselves. And to many, lips can be just as important as a lovely smile.
For example, a person considering this type of procedure may feel they have flat lips. In this case, lip fillers can provide a simple and affordable solution for them.
Lip augmentation treatments
Dermal fillers are used to plump up the lips, which some consider a more attractive look. The calcium hydroxylapatite used as a filler is a mineral compound that is found in bones. It is a soft tissue filler that is used to give fullness and volume to the lips.
According to Wikipedia, dermal fillers are also known as “injectables” due to the use of an injection in the procedure.
Botox injections are a different procedure that provides a similar outcome. We also offer botox treatments at our Southport clinic and our Liverpool clinics. Typically, this type of procedure is used as an anti wrinkle procedure to help smooth out lines in the face.
When botox is used instead of dermal fillers, most people can maintain the look they want by repeating the injections every few months, depending on the individual.
How long do lip fillers last?
Lip fillers usually last from 6 months to a year.
Are lip fillers painful?
After the lips are numbed, there is usually a little bit of pressure where the filler is inserted. Most people experience very little if any pain at all.
