Kiss thin lips goodbye
There’s arguably nothing more alluring than a pair of full, tempting lips. However, as we age, our lips become less full and start to thin. This is because our body produces less of the protein collagen, which is responsible for giving us those pleasing plump pouts in the first place. Exposure to the sun’s harmful rays can also damage collagen production. As such, many people, across all ages (thinning can begin in your twenties), suddenly find their natural lips have lost shape and volume. Thin lips and dented self-confidence remain. It’s no wonder that lip augmentation using lip fillers is popular with our clients as well as Hollywood movie stars and celebrities, keen to ensure theirs stay plump and gorgeous for the camera.
LIP AUGMENTATION WITH FILLERS
An effective, non-surgical treatment to enhance the lips using dermal lip fillers. Dermal filler is a gel-like acid injection to add volume, softening the signs of ageing. Depending on the specific lip fillers product used, results can are long term. Better still, lip treatments can stimulate the body’s own collagen production for a natural lip enhancement. At Changes Clinic in Portsmouth, we use a temporary lip filler which is absorbed by the body over time. This procedure is only ever performed by our resident professional GPs or nurses, following your consultation appointment. You can rest assured that your lip filler treatment is safe.
HOW DO LIP FILLERS WORK?
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is carefully injected. The amount of filler injected will be decided by your Changes Clinic practitioner depending upon the look you want. Our experts will ensure you avoid the trout pout look (too much filler) – you will choose to plump or naturally define during your consultation.
WHAT ARE THE BEST LIP FILLERS?
Lip fillers are suitable for both men and women, to boost the look of both or just one lip. Bringing symmetry to the face, hydration and volume, depending on your requirements. We have found the best lip fillers on thin lips are Juvederm and Princess Dermal Fillers. Both Juvederm and Princess fillers are made of hyaluronic acid that gives a subtle, natural look and lasting results.
ARE LIP FILLERS SAFE?
Lip fillers are a medical treatment and not to be confused with a beauty treatment. Injections must only be administered by a medical practitioner or doctor. They are safe when you are treated by a qualified professional and are unlikely to cause a reaction. This is because hyaluronic acid fillers are made from products similar to those found in the body.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
You may experience some bruising or initial swelling which may continue several days following your procedure.
HOW LONG DO LIP FILLERS LAST?
There is a myth fillers only last for six months. Juvederm fillers results last between nine months to 18 months before the body starts to naturally break them down.
HOW MUCH DO LIP FILLER TYPICALLY COST?
The price of fillers will depend on the brand of filler used. At Changes Clinic in Portsmouth, we pride ourselves in using the best quality products. Juvederm (made by Allergan – the world’s leading maker of hyaluronic acid) will cost from £350 for 1ml vial. Princess Lip Filler will cost from £250 for 1ml vial.
We buy our products from a registered pharmacy and can assured you that the fillers we use are the genuine product and not fakes. Unfortunately many fake products are available and may look the same. If the price is too good to be true, it probably is!
ARE LIP FILLERS PAINFUL?
You might feel some slight discomfort during your appointment as the product is injected but should not be in pain. We can numb you with a numbing product beforehand and make sure you are as comfortable as possible for this cosmetic procedure and post treatment. Dermal fillers treatment takes around 30 minutes.
ANOTHER LIP ENHANCING TREATMENT
Lip enhancement with semi-permanent makeup
Don’t like the sound of lip injections? Lip enhancements can also be achieved through non-plumping techniques. If you don’t fancy dermal fillers, then you could opt for Permanent Make-Up, whereby the colour gives the impression of fuller lips with more definition. This style of lip treatment lasts for up to four years – and just think of the savings you’ll make on lipstick!
Semi-permanent make up can help give back definition to the region around the mouth, but if you have smoker’s lines then dermal fillers or our Plasma Elite ionisation treatment is extremely effective. There will be zero invasion of the surrounding lip (perioral) area so we can resurface your skin whilst we stimulate your natural collagen and elastin to give fabulous results!
