Lip Fillers

Lips have always been considered as one of the most essential & attractive features of our face. They indicate our emotions, with full lips being associated with youth & beauty. Those who don’t have their desired type of lips, Lip Fillers is a medical treatment specially for those!

Our lips are at their fullest in our 20s, which is why we associate a plump & defined mouth with youthfulness. But the composition of our lips & surrounding structures alters as part of the natural ageing process. Sometimes the lips can be asymmetrical.
From between the ages of 30-40, factors such as sun damage (photodamage) gravity, genetics & smoking play a role, leading to a sad-mouthed or drooping appearance. Lipstick bleed lines & a flattened cupid’s bow will also culminate in a mouth that looks less defined.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does it treat?

Today’s sophisticated fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid (or HA), a substance that’s found naturally in the body. It’s a useful medical ingredient because it’s capable of holding up to 1,000 times its own load in the water. This is the reason why you’ll find it  on the back of your skincare products.

Concerning creams, it can only do so much because it can’t enter the outer layers of your skin to reach an extent where it can have an instant & notable impact. Some labels are using low molecular weight HA, to try & force it deeper into the skin, but even that can only do so much. That’s where the needle comes in.

HA is something that our body produces naturally –  it is in lesser quantities as we age . At The Skin Nurse Clinic under the experts supervision once the HA  is inserted into the skin, it’s easily broken down over months. It’s not  permanent; which in itself is convincing. And it’s not only used in the lips; it can plump out wrinkles, restore volume to cheeks & eradicate those vertical lines at the side of your mouth.

What is lip filler treatment?

Our range of gold standard lip filler treatments uses a smooth gel formula to deliver a natural look & feel to the treated area. Most lip enhancements are achieved through natural hyaluronic acid biodegradable dermal fillers which are specifically developed for the lips & mouth area & produce the most natural, long-lasting results.

The skin present on your lips is extremely thin, making them especially vulnerable to ageing factor. Some hyaluronic acid dermal fillers help to fill in vertical lines, ease drooping lip corners & attract & retain moisture to smooth dry, dehydrated lips. There are different HA that are  more volumizing properties to contour your lips & define your cupid’s bow, as well as subtly plump up tired or deflated lips for a natural look.

We only utilize FDA-approved, naturally biodegradable lip fillers devised with safety & efficacy in mind. Initial consultation with our qualified medical practitioners will lead to the discussion on a personalized lip filler treatment plan that suits you.

  • Softening lipstick bleed lines by improving the corner/edge of your lips
  • Smoothing vertical lip lines, again by improving the corner of your lips
  • Forming a natural lip shape through restoring or enhancing volume in the body of your lip
  • Lifting the sides of your lips to restore their youthful position
  • Improving the philtrum column ( this is the 2 little lines that u from your top lip to your nose ) definition of your upper lip for a lovely cupid’s bow
  • Treating the marionette section beneath your mouth to give support to the lip, assist in improving shadows in the area & your lower face profile contour.
