Even if you were blessed with full, luscious lips, hormonal changes, sun exposure and ageing all lead to a loss of volume in this area.
Over time, your skin can begin to lose fullness and elasticity, due to a reduction of hyaluronic acid and collagen. Dermal fillers can help turn back the clock and replenish loss of volume, for fuller more youthful looking lips.
At Caci, we use a filler called Juvederm for lip enhancement treatments to add volume to thin or sunken lips. This brand of filler is much smoother in consistency than others, so you will see a much more natural result. The formulation we use also contains 0.3% Iidocaine, a local anaesthetic that provides more comfort both during and after injection.
Most patients require only one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing or volume enhancement and results last up to one year.
Lip Enhancement treatments take around 15 minutes and results are immediate.
To make sure you’re getting the very best results, you will have a consultation with a Registered Nurse first so we can ensure that you are going to get the results you want. All fillers are administered by a Registered Nurse who has had extensive training, so you’re in the very best hands.
The cost will vary between individuals and these will be discussed at your free consultation.
Any pain after the treatment is usually minimal. The most common issue is temporary swelling. Although this is highly variable on the individual and it depends on how much your lip has been enlarged, and on your individual healing characteristics. Swelling and/or bruising can last up to two weeks.
