Girl SmilingWould you like a more beautiful smile? Some people have naturally thinner lips and would love to have more volume. For others, ageing, sun worship or smoking have changed the appearance they once had. As we age, our lips naturally become less plump and lose some of their definition, particularly around the Cupid’s Bow area of the upper lip or at the edges where they may start to turn down. Small or even deep lines and wrinkles can also contribute to you looking older than you really are. Make up can only do so much, so having lip fillers may be the solution you are looking for.

How do lip fillers work?

At Vogue Dental Care, Luton, lip fillers are a popular choice for restoring your smile to its former glory or giving you a new look. Your body naturally contains a substance called hyaluronic acid, which acts as a plumping and lubricating agent. This reduces as we age, causing skin all over the body to lose tone and volume which also results in lines or sagging. The lips and face are particularly vulnerable as they skin is more delicate here. Fillers consist of sterile hyaluronic acid gels that are made from non-animal sources. These augment the lips and retain water which contributes to a fresher, fuller look.

What to expect

Having lip fillers is quick, comfortable and effective. Local anaesthetic is used to prevent discomfort in this sensitive area and the filler is then carefully injected to create a natural look. The injection takes just a few minutes and the effect of the treatment is visible immediately, giving you smoother, fuller, more youthful looking lips. Most people find that their lip fillers last for around six months and you will be offered a programme of follow-up treatments to maintain your plumped up look for longer.
