Lip Enhancement, shaping and plumping is a revolutionary non-surgical method of addressing thin lips to add volume and shape without the need for surgery!
Lip injections on thin lips
Big, beautiful lips and a sparkling smile are on everyone’s wish list. Our body’s natural production of the protein collagen is responsible for the fullness and plumpness of lips that is so desirable. However, over time, lips start to lose their plumpness as less collagen is produced by our bodies. Further lifestyle conditions, such as exposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, can also cause a person’s body soft tissue to diminish – resulting in thin lips. As we age, the muscles around our mouth also begin to weaken, this can lead to lines forming around the mouth and the appearance of thinner lips. For some people, thin lips are also inherited and even in their younger years they want to know how to make their thin lips appear fuller.
How to make your thin lips appear fuller?
Here at Aesthetics of Liverpool, we help to correct thin lips and give people those soft, kissable lips that they’ve always wanted. Lip enhancement, shaping and plumping is a revolutionary, non-surgical method of correcting thin lips. By using lip fillers, our expert practitioners can address thin lips to add volume and shape – without the need for surgery! In our Liverpool clinic, we use Dermal Fillers composed of Hyaluronic Acid.
Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance that is present within our bodies – in our youth we have plenty of it and it helps to keep our skin and lips plump and full. For this reason, it has been nicknamed by press as the ‘key to the fountain of youth’. As we age, we naturally produce less and so dermal fillers can replenish our body’s supply to add volume back into our lips. Using this form of filler for lip injections helps to add volume shape whilst not being a permanent change. We will ensure you keep a natural look and you’ll still be able to have much bigger, fuller lips.
Dermal lip fillers
What are dermal lip fillers? At Aesthetics of Liverpool, we love dermal fillers. They are a quick, efficient and affordable way to help our clients achieve a more youthful, glowing look while still being natural. For thin lips, dermal filler injections can work wonders. They can shape, plump and add volume to your thin lips, totally transforming your face.
Lip injections on thin lips create fullness. By injecting Hyaluronic Acid into your lips or the surrounding borders, we can reshape and enhance your thin lips. Our expert practitioners know exactly where to place these injections to help restore fullness and define and enhance your lip’s natural shape.
Lip injections can be very effective to add volume to a thin upper lip, or to boost the bottom lip shape by adding fullness. When you have dermal fillers they are completely reversible – this means that over time the filler will break down, returning to your natural shape. For your first time, you can decide to start with a 1ml lip filler to see the results, or you can increase the amount to create a much fuller more pouty lip – depending on what you want to achieve.
Thinning Lips FAQ’s
How long do Dermal Lip Fillers last?
Dermal Fillers are well known for delivering outstanding results. Results from Dermal Fillers begin to show immediately after treatment and can last up to around six months when injected into the lips.
To give your lip filler the best chance of lasting as long as possible, there are lip filler aftercare steps you can take. Do not squeeze, massage or mess around too much with your lips, as this could cause the filler to break down more quickly and mean you get to enjoy the results for less time.
Is Dermal Filler safe?
Yes – Dermal lip fillers are safe. Dermal Filler is made up from Hyaluronic Acid which is found naturally in the body. Adverse reactions to fillers are extremely rare (however, they can occur in some cases). When you come to us for your lip injections, you are in safe hands with our experienced, professional practitioners. Safety and client comfort is our priority and we will ensure that you are comfortable throughout the procedure.
What should I expect during treatment?
The procedure itself can cause some slight discomfort. No one likes the sensation of an injection – but, the discomfort will be minimised as we will thoroughly apply a local anaesthetic before your injections. Most people often report a small scratch from the needle and then a stinging sensation, although the anaesthetic will significantly reduce this to a minimum.
When you are ready, your consultant will administer a series of small injections containing Dermal Filler into the lips using an ultrafine needle. The gel will help to plump up your lips instantly, giving you volume and shape. The area of the lip that the Dermal Filler is injected into will depend on the desired effect that you wish to achieve. Results are visible immediately and clients are usually able to go back to their day to day activities.
What happens after treatment?
After a lip filler treatment, many clients are able to resume their day to day activities immediately, however, small side-effects from Dermal Filler are common therefore it is imperative to follow all aftercare instructions to obtain maximum results without complications.
The most common side effects include:
- Itching at the injection site.
It is recommended to use iced water soaks or ice packs to help reduce swelling. The reactions normally appear shortly after treatment and may last between 1-7 days, in some cases, it may take longer, but this is not common.
Please avoid activities that cause excessive perspiration such as, the gym or visiting a sauna for 48 hours – these types of activities risk you sweating the Dermal Filler out. Please also avoid any form of makeup, facial or spa treatment for 48 hours, as again this may cause the Dermal Filler to spread causing adverse effects. If you determine that the discomfort is severe or if the site gives rise to other conditions, such as oedema or prolonged swelling contact the clinic immediately and we will work to resolve the issue.
