The perfect pout

Lip augmentation using dermal fillers is a very popular treatment and not just for Dr Anita Dhunna’s younger patients. You may think of lip fillers as something that those in their twenties have to make their lips bigger, and although this can be achieved, this isn’t the only benefit of the FDA approved lip fillers that Dr Anita Dhunna offers in her treatments. She uses specifically chosen dermal fillers to sculpt, re-shape, plump and even correct asymmetry of the lips of both her younger and more mature patients, leaving an exceptionally natural-looking result. If you are feeling that your lips are not as pert as you’d like, or that you have lost some volume, shape or symmetry, due to the ageing process, a dermal filler lip treatment, with Dr Anita Dhunna, at one of her clinics in Hatfield, Bishops Stortford or South Woodford, may just be what’s needed, to restore the shape and volume of your lips, without looking ‘overdone’.

What are dermal fillers for the lips?

Dermal fillers have been used in cosmetic medicine since the 1970s when they were made from purified animal collagen. Since the 70s however, they, have been modified to ensure a higher level of safety, efficacy and longevity of results, swapping the animal collagen for a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid (HA), in most commonly used filler products. HA is a natural sugar which is found in the body, in areas such as the joints, connective tissues, the eyes and the skin. It cushions and hydrates the tissues and it depletes as we age, resulting in skin degradation, dryness, lines and wrinkles. Replacing this lost HA in the lip area, using a dermal filler with a gel-like consistency can help sculpt and shape the lips, reduce lines and wrinkles and hydrate the skin, for a fuller, more shapely and symmetrical lip shape. Dermal fillers are a medical device and should only be administered by a fully-qualified, highly-trained and experienced medical professional, such as Dr Anita Dhunna.

Am I suitable for dermal fillers?

In the summer months, our lips can look even thinner, dryer and more lined, due to UV damage and the hotter weather. Dermal fillers are a great option for most people over the age of 18, who are looking to improve the shape, volume and skin condition of their lips. For younger patients looking for a sexier, fuller pout, dermal fillers will plump the skin tissues and offer a more voluptuous shape. For our more mature patients who would like to re-shape an area of their lips, for example-the vermillion boarder, who struggle with lip lines or who would like to correct asymmetry, this treatment could be ideal for subtle correction and enhancement. However, prior to agreeing on any lip filler treatment, Dr Anita Dhunna will ask that you attend one of her clinics in Essex or Hertfordshire, for a no obligation consultation. She will discuss your lip concerns, check your medical history and advise on the best lip procedure and product for your individual requirements. Once she is satisfied that dermal fillers would be a safe and suitable treatment for you to undergo, you can book your lip filler treatment appointment with her.

How long do the results from lip fillers last?

Dermal fillers typically last between 3 and 8 months. For some patients, they can last longer. It all really depends on the way your body metabolises the HA and your lifestyle. If you smoke, enjoy regular UV exposure, exercise excessively or simply have a fast metabolism, you might find that you need to return to the clinic every 4 to 6 months for a top up treatment. If you take care of your skin, do not sit in the sun and maintain a healthy lifestyle, you may find that you can enjoy your lip filler results, longer.

Dermal fillers can be administered in as little as 30 to 40 minutes and results can be seen immediately! It’s important however, to be aware of some cosmetic downtime, such as swelling, slight bruising and tenderness in the lip area, which may last a few days
