When treating lips at Ballsbridge Medical Aesthetic Clinic Dr. Róisín Fitzgerald strives for an enhanced but natural appearance. This applies to all facial dermal fillers but in particular to the lip area where it’s important to avoid the ‘trout pout’ look.
As we are all unique it is important to tailor the treatment to a person’s facial features as well as their desired effect. With dermal fillers it is possible to add definition (e.g. improving the upper lip or vermillion border) as well as volume to plump the lips.
In the past, fillers included permanent and potentially harmful substances. At the Ballsbridge Clinic Dr. Róisín augments lips with fillers made from hyaluronic acid (Allergan’s Juvederm® range). Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural substance found in most tissues in the body. HA binds water molecules giving volume, shape, hydration and elasticity. HA fillers are broken down and absorbed by the body over time with lip augmentation, and depending on the choice of filler, the result lasts on average 6-12 months.
Treatments are performed in a private setting on an appointment only basis. A free consultation is advised initially to discuss treatments in detail and answer any queries before taking as much time as you need to make your decision.
