Dermal fillers are hugely popular amongst Londoners as well as patients all around the globe, for re-crafting the face and restoring youthful looks, without going under the knife. At the Harley Street Face Clinic, in the heart of London’s West End, we perform a variety of non-surgical treatments, including temporary, injectable dermal fillers. One of the most popular procedures using dermal fillers is that of lip augmentation, where small doses of a substance called hyaluronic acid (HA) contained within a gel-matrix is inserted via injection in to the lips to plump, smooth, fill and re-shape the lips for a more attractive, youthful appearance.
So why are lip fillers London’s favourite treatment?
As we age, the lips can become thinner. This is due to several reasons. We lose vital substances such as collagen, elastin and HA within the skin, we may choose certain lifestyle activities such as excessive sun-exposure or smoking, which can seriously impact facial features such as the lips. The general ageing process, which includes the loss of bone and tissue mass within the facial anatomy can also play a huge part of the degradation of the lip area. For those of us who live and work in London, environmental factors such as pollution, late nights, a poor or restricted diet and excessive alcohol consumption can also impact the way we look and how our skin behaves. The lips can become thinner and the skin around them can become fragile and wrinkled.
London life is fast-paced and hectic. Many of us are embarking on new relationships later in life, due to career choices or higher divorce rates, which means the demand for us to look youthful, healthy and full of vitality for longer, is even higher. Many of us want to maintain a full pout, as this is one of the key indications of a more youthful-looking and attractive face and dermal fillers offer a fast, safe and instant solution to thinning lips.
Dermal filler injections help to plump the lips, can re-shape the vermillion boarder and even out any asymmetry and what’s more, the procedure takes around 20 minutes, is virtually painless and there is no need for a hospital stay or general anaesthetic; making this a highly-convenient treatment for us busy Londoners on the go.
