LIP ENHANCEMENT WITH DERMAL FILLERS
Fillers in Dubai | 18 January 2020
Treatments that enhance the lips – increasing volume, and filling and smoothing lines around the mouth – have become more popular in recent years. This is mainly due to celebrity trends and patients being more educated and informed about the various treatments available.
Lip enhancement treatment uses dermal fillers to enhance and beautify the lips and perioral area (around the mouth).
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are an injectable substance in a hydro-gel that contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar within the body responsible for plump and hydrated skin. The filler is injected into the outside of the lip (the vermilion border) and into the body of the lips, to create a better shape and more voluminous ‘pout’.
Dr. Vigo focuses on a subtle and natural look. No one will know you have had treatment, but the change they will see is your smoother skin and rejuvenated lip area.
How do I know this treatment is right for me?
Before your treatment, Dr. Vigo will examine the areas of concern and go through a full medical consultation. Firstly, he will need to confirm that you are fit and well for the treatment. Secondly, he needs to ascertain which procedures would be most the beneficial for you. In the consultation he may agree that you only need one of the treatments, or that a combination will give you the best results.
How long does the treatment take?
Treatment with dermal fillers usually takes between 10 and 20 minutes. If you have a topical anaesthetic before the treatment, it may need up to 30 minutes to take effect.
Does it hurt?
Some dermal fillers contain an anaesthetic to make the treatment less painful. You may also have some topical anaesthetic before treatment, so should not feel any pain. As this is an injection treatment, you may feel a slight sensation as the needle or cannula is inserted, but this should not be painful. After the treatment, some people may also experience slight bruising.
How long does the treatment last?
With dermal fillers, the results can last between 6 and 12 months, depending on the individual patient and the product used.
