Benefits of lip fillers this winter

Dermal fillers are one of the mainstays of any reputable medical aesthetic practitioner, as they are so versatile. They can augment the skin tissues, to enhance volume, reduce the appearance of deeper lines and static wrinkles, re-shape facial features and physically lift the skin for a more youthful face shape. Dermal fillers can also intensely hydrate the skin over time and this is why, from her clinics in South Woodford, Hatfield and Bishops Stortford, esteemed medical professional and respected facial aesthetician, Dr Anita Dhunna offers FDA approved dermal fillers as a non-surgical option to facial rejuvenation and skin enhancement.

Dermal fillers for the lips

It’s well documented that dermal fillers can have a restorative effect on the lips. Not only can they re-shape and enhance the volume of the lips, but, after a summer of UV damage or years of smoking, dermal fillers can help to restore a smoother skin appearance and a more hydrated look to the lips. A treatment for the lips using dermal fillers doesn’t mean that you’ll end up looking like you have a ‘trout pout’ or ridiculously shaped lips, like some of the things you see on TV or in sensationalised magazines. When expertly injected by a highly-experienced medical professional such as Dr Anita Dhunna, FDA-approved dermal fillers can repair and restore the lips, leaving a natural enhancement without looking over-done.

Why should I have dermal fillers in winter?

During the winter months, your lips have not only gone through weeks of sun damage in the summer months, but winter offers its own ravages on the skin. The cold weather, drying central heating and more time indoors and out of the fresh air can mean that the skin around our lips can become dehydrated and more lines can appear. Dermal fillers can not only restore a healthy plumpness to the lip area, but the hyaluronic acid within the dermal fillers, once integrated within the skin tissues, can attract up to 1000 times its own weight in water. This means that in the winter months, your skin receives that much needed boost of hydration, to cope with the harsher climes.

Is having a dermal filler treatment before a Christmas party, wise?

As with any injectable treatment, it’s important to time a dermal filler lip treatment well in advance of any special events or seasonal parties that you plan on attending. The lips are incredibly vascular and sensitive, so there is a solid chance you will probably get some swelling and tenderness, even some bruising, following this treatment. Therefore, at Dr Anita Dhunna’s clinics, we recommend having your initial consultation around a month to 3 weeks before a special event, and the treatment itself, no sooner than 2 to 3 weeks, prior to your party. This means that you will have plenty of time for the swelling to settle, the dermal fillers to soften and integrate with the skin tissues and for you to get used to your new lip shape and applying make-up to them.

Dermal fillers have been a popular choice amongst those who wish for non-invasive and quick solutions to anti-ageing issues, for many years and in the safety of Dr Anita Dhunna’s hands, using FDA-approved products such as Juvéderm by Allergan, your lips can look revitalised and spectacular this winter, and beyond!
