How Does Lip Enhancement Work and is it Safe

By 23 November 2020January 18th, 2023No Comments

As we get past a certain age limit, the production of collagen in our bodies decreases as we also begin losing facial fat. The lack of collagen and facial fat causes loss of volume and plumpness in the lips. While some people have naturally thin lips, many of us lose volume in the lips which causes our lips to become visibly thinner. Thinning of the lips could also be a result of excessive sun exposure, repetitive lip pursing and smoking.

Lip thinning may sound alarming, but there is an easy solution – a lip enhancement treatment at the Victorian Laser & Skin Clinic. This is one of our most popular treatments and has helped many patients enjoy plumper lips in just one sitting. Today, we will talk  about this advanced lip enhancement treatment and whether it is safe for you.

How Does it Work?

Like with most cosmetic treatments, our lip enhancement treatment begins with a diagnosis of the exact cause of the issue and the degree of enhancement needed. This is ascertained during the first consultation itself, and will form the basis of the treatment.

The treatment entails the use of dermatologically tested dermal fillers, proven for their safety and efficacy. These fillers are strategically injected at precise points on and around the lips, to restore fullness and volume in a way that appears natural. It is important to note that injecting more fillers or having an inexperienced cosmetic doctor work on you could result in a botched job, leaving you with unsightly lips. We recommend making gradual alterations to the shape of your lips over a few sessions, to achieve a more natural look.

While the results can vary from person to person, the effects of the lip enhancement procedure can last for around a year. These fillers are absolutely safe for the body, and are broken down and eliminated by its natural processes over time.

Now that you know what it’s all about, we believe that it’s your right to know some of the potential dangers and side-effects of this procedure.

Potential Risks of Lip Enhancement

  • The procedure of lip enhancement when performed by professional practitioners has no harmful side-effects or risks. Most of the side effects are the results of choosing amateur practitioners for the procedure. So, you must get your treatment from experienced and highly professional practitioners of the procedure.
  • Practitioners that have both academic and practical knowledge of this procedure along with comprehensive understanding of the facial anatomy will know how to safely perform this procedure using the best dermal fillers and suitable injection techniques for different individuals.
  • Be that as it may, some of the risks/side effects of dermal lip fillers are lumps in the lips, damage to skin cells, uneven lips, infections, tissue loss, redness, swelling and cold sores.
