Fuller lips are becoming increasingly popular throughout society, however majority of patients desire bigger lips, with the hopes of maintaining naturalism.
Lip augmentation is primarily designed to restore shape, volume and projection to the lip border and body. The main injection points in lip augmentation are the vermilion border, oral commisures, cupids bow and philtrum.
At SarahLouise Aesthetics multiple techniques and dermal fillers can be used to create bespoke treatments that meet each individuals needs. The clinical outcomes of lip augmentation are defined by th patients unique anatomy, injection technique and volume and type of dermal filler used. It is important to remember when considering lip augmentation to be involved in your care and treatment plan to achieve an optimal result. Treatments generally take up to 30 minutes and you can resume your normal daily activities following the procedure.
How does Lip Filler work?
At SarahLouise Aesthetics we use Hyaluronic Acid (HA) based fillers which are injected into the lip, to increase volume and size. Hyaluronic acid fillers work by not only plumping the lip directly but also trapping water within lips for a natural, plump pout. We advise to remain hydrated following lip enhancement for optimal results.
