Which part of the lip can be enlarged?

Lip augmentation is a procedure on a very delicate and sensitive part of the face, so it is always performed under local anaesthesia or with an anaesthetic cream applied about 15-30 minutes before the session or with dental anaesthesia, which completely eliminates discomfort and pain during the procedure.

Lip augmentation is performed by a specialist using an ampoule syringe and a very fine needle to inject a filler into the dermis. This preparation is usually hyaluronic acid, which provides a high level of nutrition and hydration of the skin. There are several injections at a time, depending on the patient's expectations. The specialist then shapes the shape of the lips with the fingers, until the desired effect is achieved. The duration of the entire lip augmentation procedure is up to 30 minutes.

Is the procedure painful?

The procedure takes place under local anaesthesia with a preparation appropriately selected by the doctor and lasts a very short time. Our doctors are appropriately trained and will take care of your comfort during the lip augmentation procedure.

What is an HA filler?

Otherwise known as a filler, hyaluronic acid is a product often used to improve scars, wrinkles and other depressions in the skin.
It is a polysaccharide that occurs in all living organisms. It binds water, which makes the skin firm and elastic. Unfortunately, as we age, we have less and less of it. By injecting it into the wrinkles, we make up for its deficiency. As a natural product, it would be quickly absorbed into the tissues, so a synthetic equivalent that has undergone a stabilisation process is used to fill wrinkles. This process ensures that it lasts longer in the skin. It is safe, fairly durable, biodegradable and stimulates collagen production at the injection site. - It only breaks down after a year and then the treatment has to be repeated.

What type of hyaluronic acid is best for lip augmentation?

On offer SUNGATE BEAUTY & SPA we work with brand products : Stylage, Croma, Juvederm and Restylane. Each differs in the degree of stabilisation, the size of the hyaluronic acid molecules.
