Lip Enhancements


Lip Enhancements

Full, luscious lips need not be a thing of the past thanks to the advanced lip enhancement techniques. You may feel young and full of energy on the inside, but age can have a real impact on the appearance of our lips. As time goes by, our lips thin and lose their definition. Fine lines can form around the lips causing lipstick to "bleed".

We can help you create fuller, plumper and younger looking lips by injecting a dermal filler into both your top and bottom lip to reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles around your mouth.

Not just lip service

We offer a range of advanced dermal fillers to create luscious, kissable lips with a totally natural look and feel. These dermal fillers will give your mouth a fuller and more sensuous form and enhance your lips to reduce lipstick bleed, and give you better definition.

Your lips can also be given a greater volume and fuller appearance.

What are lip enhancement dermal fillers?


Dermal fillers are a substance that can be injected under the skin to make it firmer and smooth out any wrinkles. There are many different dermal fillers available, we only use synthetic products consisting of hyaluronic acid which is a natural chemical found in the skin. Because they are not produced from animal products, the dermal fillers that we use are much less likely to produce allergic reactions than older fillers such as collagen, which is derived from cowhide.

Are dermal fillers safe?

Synthetic dermal fillers are extremely safe and have a very low incidence of allergic reaction. As with any procedure, there is, however, a very small possibility of allergic reaction, and this will be fully explained to you during your consultation. At Faces and Smiles we use well known brands of dermal fillers in all our lip enhancement procedures including Juvederm®, Restylane, etc

How is lip enhancement done?

Lip enhancement treatments take around 30 minutes, and only require a local anaesthetic. Once this has been administered, the filler is injected into the lips to plump them out.

How long does lip enhancement last?

Although the results vary from one person to another, the results of a lip enhancement treatment with dermal fillers can last for up to nine months. Dermal fillers are gradually broken down and absorbed by the body, so eventually, your lips will return to their previous appearance without top-up treatments. Although there are semi-permanent or even permanent dermal fillers available that produce longer lasting results, at our practice, we tend to avoid using them. Some patients can develop an allergy to semi permanent and permanent fillers. There are, however, safe products which will last between 12-18 months.
