Our highly skilled Doctor uses dermal fillers to enhance and beautify the lips and premolar area (around the mouth). One of the key signs of facial ageing is the skin around the mouth and lip area. When we are young, our lips are full, hydrated and seem to have a youthful pout. This is due to an abundance of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, which are the building blocks of nourished and hydrated skin. As we get older we start to lose these substances, as part of the natural ageing process and due to other factors such as sun damage, smoking and over-exercising. Treatments that enhance the lips – increasing volume, and filling and smoothing lines around the mouth – have become more popular in recent years. This is mainly due to celebrity trends and patients being more educated and informed about the various treatments available.
