Many people feel that their lips are thinner or less full than they desire. It’s a known fact that our lips get thinner as we age due to our bodies reducing the production of key proteins which add volume to them. Lip fillers have in recent years attracted a lot of attention (as well as some controversy) as numerous well known celebrities and models have used them as a way to create an exaggerated pout effect. This as an extreme look, but the treatment is equally as capable of producing far more subtle, natural looking results.
Benefits of lip fillers at
The Bristol Dental Practice
What are lip fillers?
Fillers are injectable agents used to fill out areas of the face and skin. The agent we use is hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the human body and that will be broken down over time. Filler treatment is not regulated in the UK and hyaluronic acid is available without prescription — anybody can offer lip filler treatment. However, only by opting for treatment with a trained therapist well versed in the facial anatomy and facial injections (like a dentist or doctor) can you ensure that your treatment is safe and administered competently. There are ethical considerations also, as we would not perform irresponsible treatment which could produce exaggerated and unnatural looking results.
How do lip fillers work?
Fillers add volume to the lips and support them to appear fuller. Lip fillers can be applied in two ways: the agent can be injected into the mass of the lips to enhance the pout or applied around the edges of the lips to give a more subtle effect. For most people, fillers applied around the edges of lips provide the most natural looking effect.
