How to enhance your lips
Thinking about getting lip fillers? Here's everything you need to know.
Ever wondered what it would be like to have full, glamorously pillowy lips? You're not alone.
Whether it's an Instagram-worthy pout or something a little more subtle, the trend for lip enhancement and other non-surgical cosmetic procedures has been rising around the globe. According to recent figures, these types of treatments account for nine out of 10 cosmetic procedures in the UK alone.
But if you've never had lip fillers before, the whole process can seem a little overwhelming. Here's how to enhance your lips and what you can expect from getting dermal filler.
How to enhance lips
While you might find plenty of makeup products out there that claim to give a 'lip-plumping' effect, for real, instantly noticeable results, filler is more effective.
It's an injectable gel made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in skin that's known for its moisture-binding properties and ability to attract water. When injected into the targeted area, it instantly adds a plumpness that can help smooth away deep lines, folds and wrinkles as well as adding more volume to lips.
Getting lip fillers
Like any cosmetic procedure it pays to do your research and know what you really want before going to a provider. You want to be sure they're qualified and highly trained and will listen to you to help tailor the treatment for the results you want.
At Skinsmiths, we only allow qualified nurses to administer the treatment and we also provide free consultations so you can find out all the information you need to know before making a decision.
During the treatment, the injection process will typically take between 10-20 minutes and there's no downtime required afterwards – you can resume most normal activities immediately post-treatment.
If you're interested in enhancing your lips with filler, we'd highly recommend booking in for your free consultation to understand more about the treatment and what your options are.
