Lip Augmentation in Exmouth
Lip augmentation, also called lip fillers, lip enhancement or lip injections is a simple technique which takes only a few minutes to perform and gives immediate results. Lip augmentation can increase the fullness and enhances the definition of your lips to create a more desirable and youthful appearance and defined smile. It can also help turn the corners of the mouth upwards.
Over time the sun, the elements, smoking and the ageing process take their toll on the lips. Vertical wrinkles or ‘smoker’s lines’ begin to appear, causing your lipstick line to bleed, the corners of the mouth begin to droop and the lips appear to ‘deflate’ and lose their youthful fullness.
The treatment can be tailored to your needs providing a natural or fuller look.
What does the treatment involve?
Lip augmentation is a non-surgical procedure that is performed under local anaesthetic by Dr Sarah Hall a fully qualified dentist with over 12 years’ experience in cosmetic treatments.
You will need a full consultation and if you are suitable for treatment we can proceed. You will be asked to sit/lie on a couch and made comfortable. Your skin will be prepared with cleansing and a numbing cream will be applied, when the area is ready the lip filler will be injected into the lips using a very fine needle. The Hyaluronic Gel provides natural volume to create fuller lips.
Does lip augmentation hurt?
During the preparation of your skin an anesthetic cream will be applied to the area to aid your comfort or you can have local anesthetic placed in you mouth to be really numb. Most of the Dermal Fillers we use have local anesthetic mixed in with them too to further minimise any discomfort
How long does lip augmentation take?
The injection process takes around 20–30 minutes.
Lip augmentation recovery and aftercare
Following your treatment you can expect some local swelling and maybe bruising, a cold compress may help ease this, and Arnica cream may be recommended to encourage the bruise to come out. It is often asked that you avoid any vigorous exercise or sun exposure for 24-48 hours. Some medications may be better avoided.
When will I see results and how long with it last?
Lip fillers work instantly so you will see the results straight away. The effects of Lip Enhancements generally last around 6 months although this can be longer for some people
