The plumpness of skin shows the first signs of ageing, and the mouth is one of the most problematic areas. The focus for communicating and confidence in social situations, thin skin or lines around the mouth can result in the face looking older, and affect self-esteem levels.
Lines and wrinkles around the lips are commonplace amongst smokers, whose habit speeds up the ageing process. However sun damage and environment also play a role in lines and wrinkles becoming more noticeable.
The problem is easily treated with non-invasive Dermal Fillers by the experts at The Harley Medical Group. Dermal fillers can be used to fill moderate lines or wrinkles; or act as a lip enhancement product. Fillers can give volume to lips, producing a more feminine, pronounced pout, perfect for women who have slightly thinner lips and are looking for more definition.
Technologically advanced man made fillers (such as Restylane and Teosyal) are animal-free and they require no test prior to treatment, whereas approximately 2-3% of people have an allergic reaction to collagen. Professionals at the Harley Medical Group carry out a 28-day skin test before any collagen treatment to ensure that the treatment goes smoothly.
Recovery time is virtually non-existent, meaning patients can easily fit the treatment into their day. Results are not permanent and will break down over time, but can easily be topped up.
Amy Wright, Dermal Filler patient at The Harley Medical Group, says: “I am overjoyed that I finally had dermal fillers done. Years of smoking has significantly aged my skin, especially my lips and around my mouth. Once I kicked the habit I treated myself to fillers and I am delighted with the result – I look years younger, and the results were instantaneous with no side-effects. It is a beauty regime that I will definitely be continuing with.”
