The desire for lips to look plump and youthful is particularly apparent around Valentine’s Day. As we get older our lips naturally tend to lose their plumpness and definition as collagen breaks down, changing how we view our face as well as making lipstick bleed. This seemingly minor change can quickly leave people feeling less confident and attractive.
Fortunately, there is a simple procedure that can bring volume and shape back to lips, whether they’ve always been thin or if ageing has left its mark: the injection of dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are safe hyaluronic acid-based products that are injected to create a fuller, more shapely look that lasts for around six months. Lips are, however, a delicate area to treat, which is why horror stories such as this, this and this are frighteningly common.
Dr Comins of the Hans Place Practice has carried out hundreds of lip treatments – including correcting treatments that have been done elsewhere by less experienced practitioners – and only uses 100% traceable fillers from well-respected manufacturers.
