Lip enhancement is a non-surgical procedure which aims to enhance the size and shape of the lips.
This is achieved through the injection of dermal fillers to achieve fuller, plumper lips which look natural.
The filler involved in lip enhancement procedures is called hyaluronic acid (HA). A clear gel, HA is a naturally-occurring substance found in the body and, like collagen, it plays an essential role in ensuring that our lips stay full and plump. HA is injected into the lips in very small amounts using a fine needle, which fills out the lips and removes any wrinkles that may be there.
Lip enhancement is ideal for people who feel that their lips aren’t full, plump or youthful enough. Lip enhancement can remove wrinkles and creases from the patient’s lips, although the procedure is just as effective on younger women who believe their pout could use a boost.
The price of lip enhancement at our clinic is just £350, making it a very affordable cosmetic option.
Many modern lip fillers contain a local anaesthetic making the experience quite comfortable. In addition, local anaesthetic gel and/or ice may be used for further comfort.
All treatments at Clinicbe® are made as comfortable as possible according to the treatment and the individual’s personal requirements. Ice is used as a topical anaesthetic. If necessary, a dental block anaesthetic may also be used. Pain killers are also available on request.
You may experience pain and swelling around the lips for a few days after the procedure, though this should subside naturally.
The results of a lip enhancement procedure can be expected to last between 3-6 months, after which the treatment can be repeated.
Lip enhancement can take up to half an hour, depending on the number of areas that require attention.
