Lip enhancement involves the use of dermal fillers to add shape, volume and/or to contour the lips.
The shape of the lip can be altered and particular areas enhanced, by placing small amounts of dermal filler into sections of the lip and surrounding areas.
Our lip volume decreases as we age which also results in the appearance of the fine lines and wrinkles around the lips which can make the lips look drawn out and less visible. Lip enhancement can help to reverse these tell tale signs of ageing as well as plumping those with naturally thin lips..
The dermal fillers are we use at Medikate are gel-like substances made from naturally occurring hyaluronic acid and can be used to soften and fill lines and folds and replace lost volume within the face and lips. These dermal fillers are hydophylic, meaning they attract and bind with water which gives even more fullness to the injected area as well as improvimg the skin’s hydration.
There are several indications for lip enhancement, including:
to enlarge the lips
to define the lip border
to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
to improve hydration
to correct asymmetry
to create a cupids bow shape in the upper lip
to correct scarring
At Medikate we will tailor a lip filler treatment program to suit your individual needs, whist aiming to maintain symmetry, proportion and a natural result.
