Lip Enhancement

Lip fillers subtly enhance the natural shape of the lip. As we age the lips naturally lose their volume, becoming thinner and less defined. Wrinkles can appear around them compromising the shape and the ‘cupids bow’. The corners of the mouth can droop leaving you looking miserable even when you’re not and it can be one of the biggest contributors to the ageing face.

Full, plump lips are very youthful looking, so giving the lips and corners of the mouth some volume with hyaluronic acid fillers can make us look younger. We have all seen the results when too much filler has been used to plump the lips, so our goal is to give a natural, subtle enhancement. Lips do not have to look fake and overdone.

What's Involved?

After consultation, Dr James will decide which dermal filler and the amount to be injected to achieve the best result. A topical anaesthetic cream is applied for 10-15 minutes. This will effectively numb the area to be treated. The dermal fillers we use contain anaesthetic; they are top quality and long lasting. For natural looking results extra volume is added to the main body of the lip, a trickle of filler can be added to the vermillion border for more definition helping to diminish the fine lines. If there is a degree of asymmetry then the lips can be subtly balanced with a little cleverly placed volume. The treatment takes only 10 minutes to perform leaving the lips looking naturally youthful and plump without the worry of a ‘trout pout’.

How long will it last?

The results will generally last up to 6-12 months. The longevity of these products is variable and each individual may obtain a different result. A plan for regular follow-up treatments to maintain the initial result may be created for you.
“ I worried about where to go for my lip enhancement, after reading up I contacted Dr James Clinic and I’m delighted I did. I went to a few consultations at different clinics but I knew they didn’t feel right. Dr James clinic is so relaxing and calming, I love going there. My lips look so natural which is exactly what I wanted. Thank you Dr James and Sharon for making me feel so relaxed.” Kerry, 36 Wirral.
