Add the Finishing Touch to Your Perfect Smile with Juvederm Lip Fillers
At SCR Clinic, we are pleased to announce that from October, we will be extending our monthly anti-wrinkle clinics to a daily service. In collaboration with our experienced aesthetic doctor, Dr. Kevin McDonald, from the 1st of October, we will be offering anti-wrinkle appointments daily. However, that’s not all – we’re also introducing a new service to SCR Clinic, lip fillers.
In today’s post, we want to share with you why offering lip fillers at our clinic makes sense for us and our patients.
What are Lip Fillers?
Lip fillers are a non-surgical aesthetic treatment during which a gel-like solution is injected into a number of points around the lips to create a fuller effect. As we age, we lose tissue volume
around and in the lips. So, while we may have full lips through our twenties and thirties, we may start to notice thinning as we get older.
We put a lot of importance on our appearance as it is how the world sees us. If, and when that starts to change, it can be distressing for some. However, lip thinning does not have to be something we accept. Lip fillers are a simple treatment which can help you restore some of the lost volume in your lips. If you have spent some time working with your dentist to get your smile just right, whether through braces or whitening treatments, you need no longer feel that your thin lips are letting you down.
What Type of Lip Fillers Do We Use?
The lip filler that we use at SCR Clinic is called Juvederm. It is a hyaluronic acid filler which has been used widely since it was first released onto the market in 2006.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body and there’s a lot of it in your skin. It holds onto water and keeps the skin plump. But like everything in our bodies, we make less of it as we age. So, using a lip filler that uses hyaluronic acid as its key ingredient is a good idea.
Who Performs the Treatment?
Your lip filler treatment will be administered by Dr. McDonald who has plenty of experience with injectable treatments. He will perform a consultation with you beforehand to ensure that lip fillers are the right choice for you and that there are no medical reasons why it might not be a suitable choice.
You will also discuss the results you hope to achieve and how the treatment will achieve this. We have the option of 5ml of filler, which is €195 or 10 mls at €290. When you’re starting out, it’s best to opt for a smaller amount and top it up if necessary. Your doctor will advise on this, too.
The treatment itself can take about half an hour and involves a number of tiny injections into the lips. The procedure can be a little painful, however, there is a component in the lip filler which
provides a numbing action. The doctor will also massage the area a little to ensure that the filler spreads evenly throughout the lips to give a natural finish.
You may find that the area is a bit red and sore for a couple of hours after the treatment, but this should pass without delay. You will be able to see the results straight away although there may be some swelling that will go down within a day or so.
The results of your lip filler treatment can last anywhere from six months to up to 2 years.
At SCR Clinic, we know how important a beautiful smile is to our patients. We see many people come in who are embarrassed about their teeth and are afraid to smile in photographs. When we see the difference a beautiful smile makes to their confidence, it really gives us great satisfaction in our work. We already offer whitening treatments to help your smile sparkle, now you
can add the finishing touch with a lip filler to address any outstanding concerns and have the beautiful smile you’ve been looking for.
