definition and shape.
Shaping lips is an art form, definition is a key consideration. Defined lips are created from
injections along the white roll or the edge where lips transition to the regular skin. In
addition to definition, shape and volume are significant considerations in lip aesthetics.
The treatment is performed in rooms. Patients must be 18 years of age and above to be
consented to have lip filler.
Dermal fillers used for lip enhancement are hyaluronic acid (HA) based. HA is a naturally
occurring substance in our bodies. Along with collagen, it makes up the dermal layer of our
lips. Hyaluronic acid attracts water which contributes to the hydration and fullness of the lips.

A consultation with the cosmetic practitioner is important to determine your suitability as a
candidate for the procedure. At your consultation, you would discuss what results you are wanting and expecting. If they are not realistic, we will be sure to tell you. Your lips will be examined and if you are deemed a good candidate for the procedure, you will be advised
what filler would suit you best, potentially how many mls you may need to achieve the
desired result and most importantly the risks, complications, and limitations of treatment.
