Most women are concerned about their appearance in some way and or many of us, the prospect of a cosmetic treatment to enhance or improve our looks is not as daunting a thought, as it may have been in the past. With improvements in safety regulations, innovative and emerging technologies and techniques and attractive prices which make cosmetic treatments more accessible to everyone; considering a non-surgical treatment to delay the effects of ageing, to enhance a particular feature or to make subtle improvements to imperfections is now common practice.

The face is the most considered area when it comes to cosmetic work, and in recent years, dermal fillers have become a popular choice for those seeking to enhance and improve their looks

Here are five reasons why you may need dermal lip fillers:

  1. The lip area can show age very quickly

When we look at someone’s face, along with the eyes, we tend to focus on the lip and mouth area when speaking with one another. The lips can indicate ageing as much as wrinkles around the eyes or sagging cheeks.

A thin lip area can exacerbate the ageing process as we associate plump and hydrated lips with that of a young person (think of babies with their cute, dewy pouts).

If your bothered by your thin lips contact Dr Ballantyne from Inject Skin lip fillers clinic in the Sunshine Coast will help you increase volume, rehydrate and remove unwanted wrinkles, improving the overall look of your face.

  1. Dermal fillers are quick to administer

Unlike most plastic surgery, dermal fillers result in minimal downtime for the patient and can be administered in around ten minutes. Although there may be a little swelling and/or bruising, following treatment, there is no need for a hospital stay, and you can go back to work and your daily routine straight after treatment. For this reason alone, dermal fillers are extremely popular for individuals with hectic schedules.

  1. Dermal fillers are incredibly safe

90% of the dermal fillers now used by reputable doctors consists of a substance called Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in the body.

  1. Dermal fillers can shape and improve

Some patients find that a thin lip area can mean the facial features are unbalanced and would like to improve this area in order to have a more sexy and attractive pout.

  1. Dermal fillers are temporary

Different to permanent lip augmentation, dermal fillers discharge naturally into the body gradually over time — usually around 6 to 8 months. However, this means that you can vary the treatment each time you return, having less or more product, a different injection technique depending on the shape you wish to achieve and you can alter treatment depending on how your face and lips naturally age.

Most HA dermal fillers are reversible with the use of a substance called Hyalaise. If you decide that you don’t like the result, your specialist can reverse the treatment for you, though this is a sporadic occurrence as the doctor will use his/her expertise in consultation and treatment, to give you the desired look and result you wish to achieve.
