What Are Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers are a cosmetic procedure that can safely plump up your lips by increasing their volume and size. It is an injectable dermal filler composed from naturally occurring substances found in the skin, but they deteriorate over time with age and environmental stress. Lip fillers are the most commonly used procedure for making the lips look and feel naturally plumper. There are several different types of fillers, and they can be injected at various sites of the mouth, the area will depend on the desired look. At Omniya Clinic, London, we use high-quality dermal fillers composed of hyaluronic acid.

About Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally produced by our body. It clear and gooey and most of it is found in the skin, connective tissue and also the eyes. The main role of hyaluronic acid is to make sure the tissue remains hydrated and well lubricated. The ability of hyaluronic acid to hold water within the lips provides a plumping-effects, and this makes the end result look much more natural, giving a youthful appearance. The natural ageing process, in addition to sun damage, smoking and other pollutants, can lead to a decrease in levels of skin hyaluronic acid. Lip fillers will give an instant boost to otherwise tired or aged lips.

How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?

The lip fillers we use are not permanent (and we explain why on our Lip Fillers page, but essentially, we have taken the decision not to offer any permanent fillers, whether for the lips or other areas of the body. There is currently not enough scientific information on the long term risks of permanent fillers). The dermal filler we use can last from 6 to 18 months, sometimes longer. There are other factors that will affect how long the lip fillers last, such as how much filler is used in the treatment to create the desired plumpness and the quality of the product used. At Omniya Clinic, London, we use high-quality products to ensure only the very best results are achieved. Eventually, the lips will return to their original shape, but the treatment can be repeated as desired.

Are Lip Fillers Right For Me?

If you are thinking about lip fillers then the chances are, they are right for you. They have been scientifically proven to be safe and effective in enhancing the volume of lips. The filler used is a naturally occurring molecule, and lip fillers exploit its natural ability to volumise.

The Lip Filler Procedure

What Happens If I Do Not Like The New Look?
