What are Dermal Fillers & how do they work?

Dermal Fillers are used to enhance the natural look of your lips. By injecting small amounts of hyaluronic based products in to the lips, lips are left feeling healthier, softer and more hydrated but most importantly, fullness and definition is restored.

As well as plumping up your pout, these injectable fillers can also help reverse a downward smile, add volume to thinning lips and smooth out vertical lines that extend from the lip’s border, targeting what is commonly known as smoker’s lines or those that extend downward from the corners of the mouth, also known as marionette lines.

What filler should I go for?

One of the most popular lip-enhancing fillers offered by The Clinic is Juvederm. Young, healthy skin contains large quantities of a substance called hyaluronic acid. As we age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of this substance in our skin, causing a loss of structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, and less voluminous lips. Juvederm is a hyaluronic-based gel, that, when injected into the targeted area, such as the lips, it acts like a natural hydrator, volumizer and cell protector by replacing the hyaluronic acid that the skin has lost over time.

How long does it take & how long will results last?

Unlike surgery, you do not have to take time out of your busy schedule to allow for long treatment and recovery times, meaning you can be in and out of The Clinic within the hour and return to your daily activities. Usually, only one Juvederm treatment is required for optimal results and lips will appear enhanced almost immediately, leaving you ready for the festive season.

Whilst how long the results last are dependent on the person, for most it can last up to a year, if not longer.
