The lips are one of our most prominent facial features and many believe they define
beauty. In fact, a number of celebrities are renowned for their full, plump lips.
With the advent of new filler substances and quick procedures with minimal downtime,
lip enhancement has gained in popularity. Lip augmentation creates fuller, plumper
lips and reduces fine wrinkles around the mouth. The treatment aims to replace that
which age has taken away, and restores the consistancy of the lips of youth. This
improves the appearance of your lips and often improves self-confidence.
At the SmartSkinClinic in Malta our Doctors use various fillers, made of substances
namely hyaluronic acid gels. A natural component of skin, hyaluronic acid gels holds
the collagen and elastin of the skin together. When injected into the skin, hyaluronic
acid gels being naturally 'hydrophillic', attract and bind to water. This provides
a gentle increase in volume to plump lips and fill larger folds of skin around the
mouth. Results can last from six to eight months, or even longer. The desired results
should be discussed with the Doctors at TheSmartSkinClinic during a consultation.
One or two phials are usually sufficient to produce the desired result, which may
be temporary depending on the material used. Injections may need to be repeated
periodically. Proper placement of the injected material is important but our experienced
Doctors will make sure of this, and will also offer you a FREE follow-up session
to make sure you are satisfied with the outcome.
These temporary procedures can be appealing to patients who want to experiment with
a fuller-lipped look, but not necessarily commit to it.
Hyaluronic acid gel does not pose an allergy risk, and some contain an anesthetic,
so the injections are not very painful. In addition, the doctors at TheSmartSkinClinic
will use a topical anesthesic (painkiller applied directly to the lips) as well
as a local painless block, before the procedure. This product can produce temporary
inflammation, swelling and redness, particularly in the lip area. However recovery
is fast and one can return immediately to normal activities.
It is important to discuss with our doctors any contra-indications such as active
cold sores, certain conditions such as diabetes, any scarring of the lips and blood
clotting problems. Remember, at TheSmartSkinClinic in Malta, we believe that you
are beautiful, and we only want to help you preserve and enhance YOU!
