  • What ‘getting your lips done’ really means – lip fillers

Dermal lip fillers can make a huge difference to the appearance of your mouth and lips, restoring plumpness and redefining the shape of the mouth and surrounding skin. You can even-out, reshape or volumize lips, and reinforce the surrounding skin to make the whole area less wrinkle-prone.

Your lips may be thin to start with, or have lost their voluptuousness with age, so your doctor’s goal will be to help your lips look naturally lovely, plump, and full. Eliminating lines around the mouth may also be a goal.

How does lip enhancement work?
A dermal filler is used on lips and often the surrounding areas, if indicated. This substance is injected into the lips at strategic points for best results. At ENRICH, we only use temporary  fillers because they can be dissolved quickly f there is an issue, and absorb back into your body over time. Dermal filler treatments last from six to 18 months.

There are a few different options for lips:

  • Accentuating the Cupid’s bow at the top of the lips
  • Strengthening the vermillion border – that’s the border around your lips
  • Soften creases/vertical lines in the upper lip
  • Increase hydration
  • Increase volume
  • Enhance definition
  • Help soften wrinkles around the mouth, like ‘sad-mouth’ marionette lines

What lip enhancement can’t do
You can’t change the shape of your lips completely – you can only work with what you’ve got, to make your mouth fuller, smoother, and more youthful-looking.

Things to consider when choosing lip enhancement

  • The shape of your lips and the areas that support the lips are important, not just the lips
  • After treatment, some bruising or swelling may occur
  • Lip fillers are a delicate, artistic procedure
  • At ENRICH, only highly skilled doctors do face contouring, including lip filler injections (not nurses)
  • Choose a doctor you feel comfortable with and trust

Having lip enhancements is a very personal choice, and is an investment in your appearance. Contact us for a personal consultation to discuss your needs with one of our highly-trained cosmetic doctors.

*With all surgeries or procedures, there are risks. Consult your physician (GP) before undertaking any surgical or cosmetic procedure. Please read the consent forms carefully and be informed about every aspect of your treatment. Some surgeries have a mandatory seven-day cooling-off period to give patients adequate time to be sure of their surgery choice. Results may also vary from person to person due to many factors, including the individual’s genetics, diet and exercise.
