Lip Fillers, also known as Lip Augmentation or Lip Injections, are a popular treatment which addresses many lip concerns.
Creates bigger lips / increases fullness of thin lips.
Enhances lip definition
Creates a more defined smile
Give the mouth area a youthful, rejuvenated appearance
Dermal fillers are also effective for smoothing out 'Lipstick Lines' or 'Smokers Lines' around the mouth, as well as other troublesome areas on the face.
The nasolabial fold is the deep crease running from either side of the nose down towards the corners of the mouth. This crease becomes more noticeable as part of the natural ageing process. Fat is lost from the cheeks, reducing skin volume and making this fold appear deeper. Repeated smiling or having a “big smile” may result in permanent, deep creases in this area.
What can be done?
Deep nasolabial folds can be corrected through injections of dermal filler into the surrounding area, restoring the lost volume and softening the appearance of these creases. The goal of nasolabial fold injections is to even out the skin volume, leaving you with a smoother, refreshed-looking appearance.
Jaw Line/Chin Augmentation
Jawline and chin filler treatments can enhance the overall appearance of the jaw and chin area. Dermal Fillers are an excellent way to shape and adjust a more satisfactory profile.
An under formed or weak jawline and chin can be genetic and can pitch into a patient’s overall confidence. Dermal Filler can be used on these areas to stiffen the skin and define the chin and jowl area, lessening the weakness of a weak jawline and chin.
High-density dermal filler can be injected supramasateric and subcutaneous to create a defined and sharpened Jawline and mandibular angle.
Models may be asked to provide photos of the treatment area prior to treatment to assess your suitability for teaching purposes.
Over time the face loses fat, causing the cheeks to become flat and saggy, giving way to a sunken-in look. Although some are born with naturally high cheekbones, achieving the look of sculpted cheeks can be accomplished through both nonsurgical and surgical treatments that focus on restoring plumpness, volume and definition.
What can be done?
To restore volume to the midface and recreate youthful contours, we can use dermal fillers. Thick cross-linked hyaluronic acid injections can be placed directly above the cheekbones and moulded to define natural cheekbone structure. They can also lift areas lower down such as the nasolabial folds. Satisfaction among this procedure tends to be very high, and the fillers can last as long as 18 months.
TREATMENT GUIDE & FAQs
WHAT HAPPENS FIRST?
WHICH PRODUCT DO YOU USE?
There are an increasing amount of dermal fillers on the market.
WHAT AREA CAN BE TREATED?
Dermal fillers can typically be used to treat any area where there is loss of volume or facial contouring. It’s also about structural balance for example, enhancing the chin or reshaping the nose.
WILL MY TREATMENT HURT?
Most dermal fillers these days contain some form of local anaesthetic. That, combined with topical anaesthetic makes for a surprisingly comfortable procedure.
WHAT IS THE DOWN TIME?
As with any injectable treatment there are associated side effects such as bruising and swelling. With certain dermal fillers we would expect some swelling which can last for a few days. Bruising can happen (although not expected) so we prefer on the side of caution and schedule your appointment where you have some time afterwards just in case, especially if it’s your first treatment. To reduce this it’s best to avoid drinking alcohol and taking omega-3 supplements for a couple of days beforehand as both can thin your blood. If you’re prone to bruising it might be wise to take some arnica tablets before and afterwards to minimise the risk but its not essential. If you look online there are some scary stories where necrosis has happened. This complication is where product has been misplaced and injected directly into a vein. This is extremely rare and highlights the importance of seeing someone who has sound facial anatomy knowledge. At Kris Beauty Aesthetics we have never had a case of this but know how to manage it should it arise by dissolving the dermal filler.
WHEN SHOULD I SEE RESULTS FROM MY TREATMENT?
One of the many benefits of dermal fillers is that you will see the result immediately after your treatment, although you should allow time for any swelling to subside to see the full outcome.
WILL EVERYTHING BE DONE IN THE ONE TREATMENT?
Some people would like quick results which is understandable however, with dermal fillers its ideal to be treated in stages. We don’t need to inject much to make a difference so it’s best to have a treatment plan such as starting with the mid face followed by lower face but all of this will discussed during the consultation.
HOW LONG WILL MY TREATMENT LAST?
It varies on the individual, but generally the results of a dermal filler treatment will last for six to nine months. As dermal fillers are gradually broken down and absorbed by the body, most people return for another treatment before the visible results have gone.
