Lip enhancement with dermal fillers
If you would like to restore some plump texture into your lips, it’s possible to build subtle volume by using dermal fillers in Kent. These can enhance your lips for a more plumped up and youthful look. It does this by targeting certain areas to give them a firmer and more rounded appearance. The effects are subtle, but you will still notice an improvement.
As our skin ages, the natural levels of hyaluronic acid give rise to the appearance of lines, wrinkles and folds. Dermal fillers can replace the hyaluronic acid that was lost, giving these areas a more youthful appearance.
One of these dermal fillers is Restylane, which contains stabilised hyaluronic acid. It’s a crystal clear gel which is administered with an anaesthetic in a syringe, to prevent any discomfort arising from the injection. The effects of the treatment are visible almost immediately and depending on the type of skin and the area being treated, the effects can last anywhere from 6-12 months. Touch-ups may however be required as well as follow-up treatments to sustain the correction. No allergy test is required before the treatment.
At the Parrock Street Dental and Implant Centre, our Principal Dentist Dr Rik Trivedi is a member of the Association of Facial Aesthetics who can provide you with a range of dermal fillers such as Restylane to slow down the signs of ageing. Dr Trivedi can check your face for any problem areas which may need targeting such as your lips and assess whether dermal fillers are a good option for you.
