Make your lips Irresistible

Lip fillers are a very popular, safe, and effective method of enhancing the natural size and shape of the lips. They are also used to soften lip lines and for the improvement of the angle at the corners of the mouth. The procedure consists of small injections of hyaluronic acid, a substance found in the body which adds volume. The vast majority of treatments will need no more than 1 ml of lip filler.

The end-result is an improvement in the appearance of lips and surrounding area for up to 6 months before the filler is naturally metabolised by the body.

About hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance that encourages the nutrient supply to the skin which promotes the production of elastin and collagen. It is a water loving molecule and acts like a natural sponge.

With ageing the amount of HA in the skin decreases significantly. This leads to a loss of support for the skin, a loss of volume, dryness, crepiness, wrinkles, and a change to the shape of the face. The use of HA in dermal fillers helps create and restore volume, it lubricates the tissues and restores vitality to the skin.

Lip and Dermal Fillers

Essex Aesthetics uses top market-leading fillers such as Restylane. These include the world’s widest range of dermal fillers.

The products are gel formulations containing lidocaine, a numbing agent. These are injected into the lips after a supplementary skin numbing lidocaine cream has been applied for optimal patient comfort.

Depending on the product selected and the amount used, the result ranges from a soft subtle look through to lip fullness and change of shape.

There are very few side effects with this type of lip filler. Hyaluronic acid also serves to improve the quality of the lips themselves making the skin look more vibrant.
