The Difference You’re Looking For - Reduce fine lines and add volume to
enhance your natural beauty
Lip augmentation is an aesthetic procedure designed to give you fuller, plumper lips. It’s a treatment that’s proving to be as appealing to millennial’s as well as to more mature audience, catering to both women and men.
A dermal filler, a naturally occurring sugar found within the skin called hyaluronic acid, is injected with a very fine needle into the lips. The results are lips that are more contoured, more enhanced. Dermal fillers can both enhance a younger lip and volumise the ageing lip.
Replenishes lost volume
Highly trained team
Lip fillers also known as dermal fillers are a non-surgical treatment that injects the lips with a substance that is found naturally in your body, in order to achieve volume and plumpness in your lips. This substance also stimulates the growth of collagen giving you a more youthful appearance. At Beauty Sculpt we use the worlds most tried and tested dermal filler, Juvederm. This product has been rigorously tested through clinical trials over the past 15 years and its records for safety and efficiency are outstanding. Juvederm has been used in 15 million treatments worldwide.
A huge advantage of lip fillers is that the results are long lasting but not permanent. Your lips can be altered over time in order to maintain the desired appearance. On average each treatment lasts 6 months. At Beauty Sculpt patient care is always to the forefront of all of our procedures and we will ensure that your treatment is as comfortable as possible. All of our lip fillers contain a local anaesthetic however; during the procedure itself clients may experience some mild discomfort. This is only temporary, and your doctor will advise you on how to minimalize this discomfort.
One of the great advantages of Dermal Fillers is that the effects are long lasting but not permanent. Duration depends on many factors, such as the individual’s skin type, lifestyle and age. After the initial treatment, follow-up sessions are normally recommended around every 6 to 12 months depending on the individual and the treatment. A treatment of the lips lasts about 6 months. Your doctor will give you more information during your consultation.
After the treatment some common injection-related reactions might occur, such as swelling, redness, pain, itching, discoloration and tenderness at the injection site. These typically resolve spontaneously within 2 to 10 days. The use of anti-inflammatory drugs or aspirin will almost always cause bleeding or increased bruising at the injection site. No exercise except for walking for 24 hours after the procedure.
