Lip Enhancement
At Skin Etc we understand fuller Lips and a youthful pout is a highly desirable feature for many people. Lip enhancement treatments can offer fuller lips or a soft sensuous appearance using material naturally found in your body.

Lip Enhancement

Treatments can be carried out in one or more of the areas of the lips as show in the diagram above.
  • Vermillion Border Outlining the lips for definition
  • Lip Augmentation The fleshy area of the upper and lower lip can be treated creating more volume.
  • Philtrum Ridges The lines that go up towards the nose can be defined by injecting the gel into them
The Treatment
SoftlineJuvederm Ultra
When enhancing the lips, it is very important to maintain a soft, natural finish. Nobody wants that "trout pout" look, and as we get older our desire for subtle enhancements become paramount.

Skin Etc only uses the latest softest dermal filler technology to achieve this and belives in using safe temporary products rather than permanent lip implants.

Both the Softline and Juvederm Ultra ranges are perfect for this.

Both comprise hyaluronic acid with unique Hylacross and Matrix formations allowing them to last longer in the lip area; Juvederm Ultra being the only family of hyaluronic filler with an FDA approval and built in pain free anaesthetic.

When enhancing the lips, a local anaesthetic is usually given to make the treatment more comfortable. This may not be necessary when using Juvederm Ultra. The soft gel is the injected with a very fine needle into the areas of the lips required to achieve the desired result. The (vermillion) border of the lips can be treated to define and outline the lip line and body and pout can also be created. The treatment usually takes no longer than 30 minutes.

After the injection, the lips often become a little swollen. This means that the result directly after the treatment may not be the final result. (The swelling typically resolves spontaneously within a few days.), but most people find that they can return to work after a few hours.

Skin Etc can draw up a plan for regular follow-up treatments to maintain the initial result. Softline and Juvederm Ultra offer a long-lasting but not permanent result leaving you the option to change the desired appearance over time.
