Will I have long lasting lip filler results?

Dermal fillers themselves will last for around 6 months, before the treatment will need to be reapplied. But over time, dermal fillers can make a permanent improvement to the appearance of facial scars. This is because the filler injections help to break up scar tissue, and the collagen-boosting properties of the hyaluronic acid within the filler, can help your skin begin to naturally repair. This won’t get rid of the scar entirely, but it does mean that over time, less filler and less frequent treatments will be required, to maintain the much improved appearance of your skin.

Lip Fillers & Dermal Fillers. What are they?

Dermal fillers are an aesthetic treatment that involves injecting a gel into the skin to add volume and hydration. The dermal fillers we use are hyaluronic acid based, and this is a naturally occurring substance that can hydrate the skin and supports the natural production of collagen.

Dermal fillers can have a dramatic effect on reducing the appearance of scar tissue on the face. In fact, your scars could become virtually unnoticeable, over time. This is because scar tissue often leaves a hollow, and even if this is only minimal, it will be noticeable.

Choose dermal fillers to transform facial scars

Dermal fillers can help to transform the appearance of facial scars, as they can be injected directly into the site of the scar. This adds volume to the skin at the base of the scar, and raises the level of the scarred skin to become flush with the surface of the rest of your face. As a result, the scar tissue will no longer be indented.

Dermal fillers can also have a hydrating effect on your skin cells, which can help to improve the overall tone and texture of the skin, including the damaged scar tissue which may have an uneven tone.

Considering Anti Wrinkle Injections aka Botox Chorley?

Lines and wrinkles can effect a range of different facial areas. Although lines around the eyes and the forehead tend to be the focus of most of the advertising surrounding anti-wrinkle solutions, lines around the mouth can also be an issue. This includes upper lip lines. So why do these form, and how can anti-wrinkle injections help? Well, here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic, we are Preston’s number one aesthetic practitioners. From dermal fillers and chemical peels to dermaplaning and anti-wrinkle injections, we provide a range of aesthetic procedures to tackle a range of issues. As a result, we have produced this guide to anti-wrinkle injections for upper lip lines.

Why do lines form above the upper lip?

From the mid thirties, lines and wrinkles can begin to appear on the skin above the upper lip. This can age your appearance, making you look older than you are. But why do they appear? Well, there are a number of causes, including:

Facial expressions- Facial expressions are caused by muscle movements and contractions. The muscle around the mouth is responsible for opening and closing the mouth, as well as speaking and pursing the lips. Over time, repeated expression actions can cause lines to develop above the upper lip, as the skin loses elasticity and no longer returns to its natural position.

Smoking- smoking involves moving the facial muscle around the mouth repeatedly and more frequently than non smokers. This means that wrinkles here can form earlier and become more noticeable. Toxins produced from cigarette smoke can also accelerate the ageing process of the skin in general, causing a range of damage.

UV exposure- all year round your face is exposed to UV rays from the sun. While you might cover up your forehead with a hat, your upper lip is left open to the elements. This can cause the skin to become dehydrated and actually damages the skin, causing wrinkles as well as more serious concerns.

Loss of volume- as a natural part of the ageing process, the skin loses fat storage and volume. This can create more obvious lines and wrinkles.

Why should you choose anti-wrinkle injections for upper lip lines?

So, how can anti-wrinkle injections help? Well, these work by relaxing the orbicularis oris muscle which is responsible for moving the mouth, above the top lip. This prevents any excessive creasing of the upper lip, and allows the skin to reset, reducing the appearance of any lines or wrinkles. This is a non surgical procedure that is quick and straight forward to implement, and you will not require any recovery time. However, you may struggle to hold a cigarette or straw in your mouth for up to a week after the procedure.

Anti-wrinkle injections around the mouth should only be implemented by a professional, registered practitioner. This is because all injections around the mouth can carry risks, including lip incompetency, struggles with speech and other complications. A professional team, like ours here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic, are trained to establish the natural facial flow, and inject the right amount of substance in exactly the right place, to ensure the best results.
