Lip enhancement treatment is a popular non-surgical treatment, which involves injecting filler to enhance the shape or the size of the lips.
There are various methods of increasing the size or shape of the lips. Some of the procedures are temporary, such as injecting dermal fillers. Other procedures allow an implant to be put inside the lip and this is longer lasting, and in some cases even permanent.
Lip enhancement is the most common form of treatment to remove lines around the mouth, as well as, create fuller lips for a more sensuous smile. At our clinic we want to give the best natural looking results, using natural and safe fillers.
As the effects of aging take hold, even the lucky few who were born with perfectly beautiful lips, may want to consider enhancing their lips appearance. Over time, the lips volume depletes, leaving a thinner, flatter appearance.
Wrinkles and fine lines compromise their smooth look, and the vermillion borders and Cupid’s bow become less defined. Around the mouth, the area between upper lip and nose can become flattened, and the corners of the mouth may turn downward, creating a tired, aged appearance.
Types of Lip Enhancement
There are diffrent options of Lip Enhancement procedures:
Injections of natural dermal fillers such as Restylane,Perlane,Teoysol, Crisytal and Juvéderm

Natural Lip Enhancement
We use all types of natural dermal fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, Teoysol, Crisytal and Juvèderm to fill out the lines around the mouth and produce a fuller lip. The results last between six to nine months. The product will dissolve away naturally afterwards, leaving the lips the same as they were prior to the treatment.
The advantages with using these substances are that they last much longer and are excellent in defining the lip edges, thus, giving an enhanced appearance.
There are many different options available and different methods create slightly different effects and have differing benefits. During the consultation our surgeon will discuss fully the various methods available, and the advantages and disadvantages of each, in order to achieve the desired results.
Lip enhancement treatment adds volume to both the upper and the lower lips. The procedure also sculpts the lips, making the Cupid’s bow more pronounced.
This non-surgical treatment helps reduce the signs of aging by enhancing the texture and smoothness of the lips and by filling the lines and wrinkles caused by smoking. Patients can expect to walk away with a fresh, natural look.
The main substance in dermal fillers (Restylane, Perlane, Teoysol, Crisytal and Juvèderm) is hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the skin, tendons and muscles of mammals. Doctors also use dermal fillers to improve the nasolabial folds these are creases of skin, which run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth.
