Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate love and show appreciation for those special people in our lives, and what better way to do that than by treating yourself or a loved one to a little pampering?
I often have patients ask me about the best ways to enhance their natural pout without having “ducky lips.” Many seek improved hydration of the lips, improved definition of the lip contour or volume. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body that helps to hydrate and plump the skin. When injected into the lips, it can add volume, definition, and hydration for a more youthful and revitalised appearance. The key to achieving natural-looking results with lip fillers is to choose an experienced and skilled provider who understands the delicate balance between adding volume and maintaining a natural appearance. Customising the treatment to each patient’s individual needs and desired outcome is essential to having natural results. This occurs with the type of filler used, the quantity of hyaluronic acid used and the way it is injected into the lips.
Safety is always top priority, and I take every precaution to ensure that my patients are comfortable and well-informed throughout the treatment process to ensure the best possible results. It’s important to note that some mild swelling is normal after receiving lip fillers, and this typically subsides within 24-48 hours. Expertise and attention to detail help achieve the beautiful, natural, and confident smile you deserve leaving.
