Over time it’s completely natural for small lines, imperfections and creases to start appearing on your face. They’re a consequence of the ageing process, but that doesn’t mean you have to sit back and let them be. One way of restoring and even enhancing the vitality of your face is with dermal fillers, with the most popular version being lip fillers. They’ve exploded in popularity in recent years and so we’re here to give you the lowdown on them.
How do Lip Fillers work?
When you’re born there is a nice layer of fat that sits below the skin’s surface which gives you that babyfaced look and fills out your appearance. However, as time goes on you naturally start to lose this layer of fat, meaning the facial muscles get closer to the skin and it loses that natural look.
Lip fillers work by injecting a substance called hyaluronic acid (HA) into the lips. It is a simple 30-40 minute process and the positive effects should appear within 24 hours, lasting between 9-12 months. The reason that most practitioners have switched to using HA after previously using something called collagen is because not not only does HA last longer, but it also traps the water within your lips for a more natural pout. At Dundrum Cosmetic Clinic we use HA to administer lip fillers in Dublin.
What are the risks?
Another benefit of using HA is that in the case of any negative side effects after treatment, it can be easily be removed by one of our expert clinicians. This was not previously the case with collagen fillers. After the treatment most patients will see small amounts of redness, bruising or swelling around the lips in the 24 hours after treatment, but these will subside quickly. Although the procedure is quick and relatively pain-free, if you believe you’re particularly sensitive to pain then we’re more than happy to use an anaesthetic cream to numb the skin.
How much do lip fillers in Dublin cost?
