What is natural lip enhancement? What will it do for me?
It is simply a natural form of lip enhancement with a concentrated beam of laser light as an alternative to fillers and injections. It provides the client with a natural fullness, plumpness and curve of their lips.
What can I expect on my first treatment?
The first step is to have a consultation with you about the lip enhancement process to outline how may sessions you will require to achieve your desired result. If you are satisfied and wish to proceed, then we may commence treatment directly after the consultation.
How does the lip enhancement treatment work?
You will be asked to lay down on a treatment bed while we adjust the settings on the machine – tailored to your individual needs. We will provide you with protective eyewear which you will wear and then wipe over the area we will be treating. We will then commence the lip enhancement treatment when you are ready.
What does the lip enhancement treatment feel like?
You feel a gradually increasing warm tingle throughout your lips during the lip enhancement procedure. Once the temperature is at the desired degree of temperature we will aim to maintain that heat for ten minutes. Pain is minimal and there is hardly any discomfort.
How many sessions will I need?
Generally clients need between 4 – 6 sessions for optimum results
What will I look like after the treatment is complete?
Your lips will appear red and slightly swollen, in most circumstances this will subside within a few hours; however could take up to 24 hours to settle back down.
Are there any side effects from this treatment?
The appearance of the treated area immediately following lip enhancement treatments will vary from patient to patient. Side effects are usually minor and will depend on the sensitivity of the patient as well as their skin type. There may be some redness and swelling around the area which typically disappears within hours. Effectively, this is a desired clinical result indicating that your lips have responded to treatment. People return to normal activity right away. Limiting sun exposure before and after each treatment will minimise the risk of complications.
Are these treatments FDA approved? Are they safe?
Yes, the ND-YAG technology is FDA approved and has been scientifically proven to be very safe. Candela is the leading technology worldwide in non invasive lasers and natural lip enhancements.
