Lips enhancement Croydon

Lips are an important part of facial beauty. Youthful, full and plump lips are a dream of many women. We can make this dream come true with a simple and safe dermal filler treatment that would add volume and definition to small, thin lips. The procedure can also balance out asymmetric lips or reduce the appearance of vertical lines.

What are indications for lips enhancement in Croydon?

When deciding to undergo the procedure, we have to remember about the natural effect – the change should be fine and subtle. The treatment can be performed regardless of the patient’s age. In young men and women the most often targeted problem is lips asymmetry – too thin upper or lower lip. In older people, the procedure involves rejuvenating - by reshaping the lip outline, a more youthful, appealing contour is achieved.
