We live in the era of bigger is better: bigger hair, bigger houses, bigger cars and especially bigger lips. Popularised by the likes of Kylie Jenner, Rosie Huntington Whitely and Angelina Jolie, women all over the world are desperate for that sexy, bee sting look. There are ways to achieve this look non-surgically, such as our M1 Select lipbooster or clever make up tricks, but the best way to achieve a semi-permanent perfect pout is a treatment with hyaluronic acid performed by one of our expert doctors. Read on to find out the ins and out of this treatment and why it’s the best option for you!
The word acid can throw up alarm bells, but don’t worry, your lips are in safe hands. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that helps to retain moisture in the skin; in fact, it can hold almost 100 times its weight in water! It helps your skin maintain its elasticity, resilience and volume, and has become one of the most popular ingredients in high quality skincare.
Specially formulated lip filler is the best choice for lip injections as it is naturally occurring and is broken down by the body over time, unlike other substances, such as silicone, that can cause major health problems when injected into the body. Treatments with lip filler tend to last for up to 6-9 months; after this the substance harmlessly dissolves into the body.
A small amount of lip filler injected into the lips by a qualified doctor and add shape, definition and volume to your lips, giving you the look at you’ve always dreamed of. One treatment can use anywhere from 0.5ml of lip filler to 2ml: it all depends on the results you want to achieve and what your doctor thinks is a realistic goal for you to have. At M1 this is determined in your one-on-one consult with your doctor, so you know exactly what to expect from your treatment.
