Over time, our lips gradually begin to lose volume, causing them to become thinner and lose their shapely contour. As the upper and lower lips thin, this can cause an older-looking appearance, even making some individuals look angry. Lip enhancement, also called lip augmentation, can be an effective solution for restoring the natural plumpness of the lips.
The procedure is non-surgical and the volume required to enhance your lips depend on your unique needs. Dr Julia uses hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, which are safe to enhance the lips with an overall soft, natural feeling.
The treatment takes minutes to perform and can be done in a simple office visit with or without an anaesthetic. Patients can expect results to last about six to nine months on average, at which time they can choose to return for follow-up treatments.
