Beautiful natural looking results using Juvederm Ultra Smile

Why the need for lip fillers?

When deciding to have lip fillers one of the many questions you may have is why have my lips thinned over time? As we age our lips tend to become drier and lose volume which brings about a thinner appearance and loss of definition.  The skin on your lips is regularly moisturised from within by hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar. However as we age the skin naturally loses hyaluronic acid. The natural loss of hyaluronic acid over time leads to the appearance of wrinkles and the lack of fullness in our lips. As our lips become slimmer, they lose volume and lack definition. We can develop vertical lines around the mouth, which can form at the corners going down to the chin or develop a droop to the corners of the mouth which can give lips a sad appearance. Juvederm Ultra Smile is a hyaluronic acid lip filler for lips to help:-

  • Enhance lip volume and create a symmetrical and balanced appearance.
  • Redefine the outline of your lips including the cupid’s bow.
  • Improve vertical lip lines (bleeding lipstick lines).
  • Reduce the lines at the corner of the mouth.

A study showed that 98% of people who had Juvéderm® VOLBELLA® with Lidocaine reported that their lip appearance goals had been achieved; with results lasting up to 12 months.
