Why a whole page dedicated to lips?
For many young people, lip fillers are often the gateway to injectables and until recently, big lips were in, as promoted by celebrities, who’ve since reversed the trend. Nonetheless many young people who start, often go overboard with the promise of 0.5ml filler here and another “top-up” there, accompanied by perception drift, till they are often unrecognisable.
It need not be this way. After all, bad lip fillers are hard to look away from, so it makes sense that if you want to go bigger while still remaining in sync, a whole face approach to your face is the best approach with someone who will be your guide, your advisor and will press pause when you need to wait before having more.
At Skin Essentials, we have two types of patients requesting lip fillers – those young enough that they want to go slighty bigger, or who may lack naturally full lips. The second group is those beginning to show signs of ageing, from mid 30s onwards, where the lips have begun flattening, drooping at the corners, giving them a sad look; bony changes underneath mean the nose to lip distance is growing, leading to an aged look.
As you may appreciate by the paragraph above, taking a one size (and 1ml) fits all approach would clearly be doing both types of patients a disservice.
So we begin, as always, with an initial consultation- we put aside time to discuss your wants, your needs, your goals and your budget.
We discuss what is possible, over how much time,
and associated costs, and then you get to decide if you want to go ahead, or not.
Most people, especially if they have some thin lips to begin with, will need more than a single session to get to the lips of their dreams, assuming that is even possible, without looking ducky/ trouty/ Marge Simpson-like so it is important to have that conversation early, and first because nothing is worse than mismatched expectations.
With the introduction of a new class of injectable diabetes drug that hit Australia in 2022, used off label for weight loss, the term “ozempic face” has really taken off in recent months. The drug, which is injected weekly, is approved for the treatment of certain types of diabetes and is a game changer in […]
Common complaints I hear of when meeting patients for the first time, whether new to medical aesthetics or new to me, is issues with their anti wrinkle dose and "wearing off too quickly". So it bears repeating - anti wrinkle treatments work by paralysing the nerves that send signals to the muscles in your face […]
The most seasoned business owners know firsthand that in order to succeed, you have to be willing to fail, sometimes many times over. Each time this happens, you pick yourself up and keep moving, learning from what worked, and what did not. Why do this to ourselves? While it seems like an exercise in self […]
