Your lips are a part of your face that subtly add more beauty and confidence in the way you look. If you are not satisfied with the volume of your lips and want to achieve a fuller and well-rounded lip volume, then you should think of getting a lip filler.
Dr. Adam Najem can enhance your lips for subtle alterations or make them fuller and more voluptuous by injecting lip fillers. Whatever you have in mind, he will create natural results that are an ideal match for your unique goals and expectations.
Lip fillers are a common product used to add volume to the lips. These are made with hyaluronic acid, found within the body, which attracts water to hydrate the skin.
Fillers are injected into the lips to boost their plumpness, enhancing their overall smoothness and softness. These can create a more symmetrical effect, filling wrinkles and/or lines surrounding the lips.
The area to be treated will be numbed with ice and creams before the procedure. Once the target sites are ready, the prepared filler is injected to plump the lips.
Dr. Adam Najem uses between 1 – 1.5ml in injections, before assessing the results six weeks after the treatment. For some patients, two sets of injections are typically required, according to your own response to the first treatment.
While pain is minimal during lip enhancements, Dr. Najem uses fillers containing an integrated anaesthetic to ease any potential discomfort. Once the treatment is completed, minor swelling may occur in the target areas, though this lasts only one or two days. In rare cases, this can extend to around one week, and bruising appears.
It’s recommended to wear no make-up for at least 24 hours after your lip enhancement. This gives your body the time it needs to recover.
Lip enhancement differs according to your own goals and face. You may find certain effects more beneficial, such as enhanced lip volume, reshaped lips, or wrinkle treatment to refresh the area around the mouth.
