Lips are the in thing! No explanation needed. But something you might not know is that the loss of shape and structure can significantly increase the signs of ageing. So whether you’re interested in fuller, plumper lips to be your own style icon, or want to turn back the clock on ageing, we can help with our tailored lip enhancement and rejuvenation therapies.
This treatment uses a very fine needle to inject solution into the lips to enhance their size, shape, and borders to achieve desired size and texture as well as to refresh older lips that have thinned out and developed lines within the lips. Semi permanent solutions work by creating an internal framework (or scaffolding) on which new collagen and elastin can attach, creating the structure, tone, and firmness for a more youthful appearance. Movement and sensation are not affected – your lips will look and feel soft and natural. Local anaesthetic cream may be administered for increased comfort.
The important question… Is it safe?
Although there is a variety of lip enhancement products, Dr Auteri uses only proven and tested ones. These solutions are biodegradable and most are based on substances naturally occurring within the human body. As they are found naturally in human cells, these products are well tolerated and there is no need for allergy testing. Although lip enhancement solutions have been used for many years they should not be used in pregnancy, lactating mothers and certain other medical conditions. It is very important to tell us prior to treatment if you have health problems or are on any medication.
Side-effects of lip enhancement treatments may include some swelling, redness and occasional bruising. This will disappear within a couple of days although occasional severe bruising can last up to 10-14 days. Although most people resume their daily routine immediately after treatment some more severe side-effects, such as severe bruising and infection, can prevent you from resuming your normal duties for 2-4 weeks.
How long do lip enhancement results last?
The effects of the treatment usually lasts between 6 to 9 months, depending on skin type, lifestyle and skin maintenance. Some longer acting products can last between 9 to 18 months.
