Kiss thin lips goodbye
There’s arguably nothing more alluring than a pair of full, tempting lips. However, as we age, our lips start to thin. This is because our body produces less of the protein, collagen, which is responsible for giving us those pleasing bee-stung 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 themselves with small lips and dented self-confidence. It’s no wonder that lip enhancement treatments are popular with Hollywood movie stars and celebrities, keen to ensure theirs stay plump and gorgeous for the camera.
An effective, non-surgical treatment is to inject the lips with dermal fillers. These gel-like acids provide plumpness to the lips, softening the effects of ageing. Depending on the specific filler used, results can last for years. Better still, they can stimulate the body’s own collagen production for a natural lip enhancement. We use a temporary filler which is absorbed by the body over time. This procedure is only ever performed by our resident GPs or nurses, so you can rest assured that it is safe.
Lip augmentation treatments are suitable for both men and women, and can be used to boost both lips or just one, depending on your requirements.
Lip enhancement can also be achieved through non-plumping techniques. If you don’t fancy filler, then you could opt for semi-permanent make-up, which could extend slightly beyond your natural lip line to give the impression of fuller lips. This treatment can last 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 area around the lips, but if you have smoker’s lines then dermal fillers or our Jett plasma ionisation treatment is extremely effective. Without the need for any invasion of the surrounding lip (perioral) area – there is no contact with any instrument – we can resurface your skin whilst we stimulate your natural collagen & elastin to give fabulous results!
