Lip Augmentation with DERMAL FILLER

Hyaluronic acid can be used to replace volume and contour to older lips preventing lipstick roll. It can also be used to correct asymmetry and hydrate lips at any age.
Over filling at any age looks awful and we will always advise on starting with half a ml. We use only the top brands of dermal filler specially designed for lips.

Hyaluronic acid is gradually broken down by your own body. It lasts from 6 months to a year.
We find using Skincueticals HA intensifier can prolong the life of an injected filler.

As your lip area is very sensitive you will need either topical anaesthesia with numbing cream or numbing injections with dental block. We offer both options at FACES.

Lip augmentation with Hyaluronic Acid is generally a very safe procedure and side effects like infection, allergic reaction and vascular occlusion are extremely rare. We are very meticulous about hygiene and keeping everything sterile. Even though we will ask you not to touch the treated area we will get you to wash your hands with a surgical scrub just in case!
Because the procedure is carried out by a trained doctor we always have the POM Hyaluronidase ready for use in the very rare event of any of the filler getting into a blood vessel. We also have adrenaline and other medicines used to treat any allergy.
We know it is a nuisance but we always ask you to remove makeup from ALL OF YOUR FACE before injecting any filler. This is a safety precaution so we can immediately see any skin changes in the very rare event of vascular occlusion.

For anyone wishing for a completely Natural lip augmentation, Platelet Rich Plasma injected into the lips can restore volume and contour.
