Pucker up for Valentine’s Day with Belfast’s very own lip queen!

Pucker up for Valentine’s Day with Belfast’s very own lip queen!

You don’t have to go to Harley Street to have the best lip injector, Belfast has its very own at The Clinic in Deborah Elwiss-McNally, and with the most romantic time of the year nearly upon us, if there is ever a day to rock the perfect pout, Valentine’s Day is it.

Lip prep is just as important as selecting the right lip colour to compliment that Little Black Dress. The harsh winter months will have been tough on our lips, leaving them dry, cracked and often with a shrunken appearance. However, with a little help from The Clinic on Belfast’s Lisburn Road, a range of dermal filler treatments can help transform even the thinnest of lips into a healthy pout.

Juvederm is one of the most popular lip-enhancing fillers offered by The Clinic, and it will help achieve a more alluring look without invasive treatment or a long recovery time, leaving your lips perfectly kissable for Valentine’s Day and beyond. Here is everything you need to know about how it works…

What is Juvederm & how does it work?

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. Lips can regain thickness and substance following this short treatment that only takes 15-20 minutes to apply.

What are the benefits?

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 and results can last up to a year, if not longer.  Lips will not only appear more attractive, they’ll also feel healthier, softer and more hydrated.

Don’t forget The Clinic offers a number of other treatments in order to compliment your voluptuous lips with rejuvenated, glowing skin, including Anti-Wrinkle injections, Epionce skin peels, Sclerotherapy and Endermologie.

All procedures are administered by a fully qualified aesthetic practitioner. Prior to any treatment, the experienced team at The Clinic will discuss the process and talk through any questions or concerns you might have.
