Lip Enhancements at Butterfly Dental

For those of you who are not aware of what lip enhancements/fillers are, let us explain… Lip enhancement is a cosmetic procedure that creates fuller lips adding shape, structure and volume. These days, an injectable dermal filler is the most commonly used method of lip enhancement. These types of dermal fillers are often called ‘Hyaluronic Acid Fillers’. Hyaluronic Acid is a natural substance found in the body which attracts water to itself to create a plump look. This helps increase volume in the lips. The effects of this procedure can last around 12-18 months depending on the person, and a top up will be needed after that to maintain the volume in your lips.

Each and every patient has control over lip volume, and it is personal to you. The amount of substance used is controlled by the practitioner which will be determined by the results you are attempting to achieve. Until desired results are achieved the fillers can be topped up to make sure the patient is completely happy with the outcome.

Any lumps and bumps created by movement of the lips can be dissolved easily by gently massaging the area. There may be less bruising and swelling with Hyaluronic Acid Fillers compared to other dermal fillers. The results are reasonably long-lasting, but not permanent. Hyaluronic Acid is naturally metabolised by the body and therefore the results are not permanent and in some cases can last up to 12-18 months! Hyaluronic Acid fillers can create a natural and subtle look or they can dramatically change the person’s features, this depends on what the patient desires. Because Hyaluronic Acid fillers are made from substances similar to those found in the body, they are unlikely to cause an allergic reaction. But if you are allergic to lidocaine (anaesthetic), tell the practitioner prior to treatment.
