Professional Lip Augmentation & Enhancements
Lip Filler Treatment
More people than ever before are choosing lip augmentation treatments to enhance their natural lips and boost their confidence. After all, your lips shape your face and thinning lips are one of the first signs of natural ageing. Therefore, if you are not happy with your lips, dermal fillers are a great way to enhance the look and feel of your face by changing the shape, size and features of your lips.
Lip sculpting is an innovative way of applying dermal filler to the components of the lip which enhances its attractive features. For example, the area in the centre of the upper lip can be accentuated to “show off” the cupid’s bow, and the volume of your lips can be changed to appear fuller and more luscious.
You should always be aware of amateur injectors who simply augment the lips (fill them up) without being mindful of the lip anatomy! This is because the lips have a specific contour and if they are carelessly filled up they may appear unnatural.
