The popularity behind lip enhancements

author: last updated:  


Lip fillers are the latest cosmetic-beauty craze for enhancing the look of your lips, making them appear full and pouty. Celebrities such as Kylie Jenner, Britney Spears and Kim Kardashian have all chosen to undergo lip augmentation treatment and reap the benefits of it. As more and more celebrities and influencers have gotten lip fillers, this treatment has grown to become a trending procedure for those who want to follow their idols footsteps or for those who may feel insecure about their thin smile.

Shape and enhance the lips

Do you look in the mirror and feel dissatisfied with your natural lip shape? Lip fillers, also commonly known as dermal fillers, are small injections of gel, typically made up of hyaluronic acid, that are directly injected into the lips to tweak areas that lack volume. Hyloronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body which means it is not foreign to the system. Lip fillers are designed to re-shape the lips to fit and frame the face, making them perfectly, but naturally symmetrical.

Reduce the signs of ageing

Further on in the aging process, the reduced production of new collagen and elastin molecules start to make the lips appear thinner and wrinkled. The lack of moisture can also cause minor thinning to the lips. If your lips have thinned over time, our lip fillers in Essex can help you to appear younger with the magic of fuller-looking lips.

Quick procedure with long-lasting results

When receiving lip enhancements in Essex, the procedure is around 30-45 minutes. Once you look in the mirror, you should see an instant improvement to your lips straight after the fillers have been inserted. After this, your recover should only take around 1-3 days and the rest is history – you results can last up to 6 – 18 months, however, this does very from person to person.

Simple aftercare

Once you’ve come home from receiving your lip fillers, you may notice some slight swelling and redness to the the treated area. If so, apply a cool compress to the treated area for around 10 minutes every half an hour after treatment, this will help to reduce the symptoms while also minimising the chances of bruising. The swelling and redness should fade away after a few days. Lastly, try to stay away from any heat inducing activities for 24 hours such as strenuous exercise, spas, saunas, hot weather and hot showers.
