Lips are the most prominent feature of your face and say a lot about your personality. Naturally, plump, fuller and well-defined lips are considered to be a sign of sensuality, attractiveness and sexuality.
As your age, your lips lose their natural volume becoming thin, smaller and less defined. Lines start to appear on the lips which change their smooth and soft appearance while compromising the cupid’s bow and vermillion border shape. The mouth corners also turn downwards giving a tired, aged and sad appearance to the entire mouth.
So if you have reached this stage of ageing in which your lips are losing their natural beauty and attractiveness, then you can choose to have lip enhancement treatment to restore them to their natural fullness and volume.
The non-surgical lip enhancement has gained prominence over surgical lip enhancement because of its effectiveness, quick, easy and safe results. The non-surgical lip enhancement uses dermal filler injections to give volume to thin and small lips.
How does it work?
- The edges of the lips are treated to restore the young contours and redefine the vermillion border which helps in preventing lipstick bleeding and give you lips a definite and contoured shape.
- The non-surgical lip enhancement adds natural volume to the lips and creates the balance between the facial features, creating a pronounced and captivating pout. It is the most common lip enhancement that most of the patients seek.
- It helps in treating the lines and wrinkles that are formed due to pursing of lips or smoking and gives a fresh and youthful appearance to the mouth.
- It is also possible to enhance the area between lips and nose (philtrum ridge) as it improves the contour and definition of lips.

Prior to the treatment, the practitioner applies a topical anaesthetic cream to minimise any discomfort during the procedure. The commonly used dermal fillers for lip enhancement are the hyaluronic acid based fillers which also have some local anaesthetic for additional comfort.
The hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is found in our body and it helps the skin in maintaining its structure, thickness and retaining its moisture. The filler is injected into the required areas with a very fine small needle.
The results of lip enhancement with fillers are instant. You can see the results immediately after the treatment. There is little to no recovery period so you can continue to perform your daily chores after having the lip fillers. These fillers are not permanent and dissolve with the passage of time. Depending on the type of filler used and the area, the effect of fillers last for about 6-12 months.
Following the treatment, you will experience swelling and mild bruising with redness but these conditions are temporary and usually resolve in few days. The practitioners often offer follow-up check up to see whether the treatment side effects have settled or not and how are the results.
