As you age, you may experience volume loss in your lips or fine lines appearing around your mouth. While unavoidable, you can treat thin lips with a minor, in-office procedure. Lip fillers (hyaluronic acid fillers) on the market today may appear at first glance as all the same. However, some fillers can create a bluish tinge or a puffy, lumpy look when administered incorrectly. It is important to discuss all the options with our specialists at Sthetix.
What are My Options?
There are many fillers available to treat the signs of aging, most of which contain the same basic ingredients. The primary ingredient, hyaluronic acid, has a “plumping” effect that addresses wrinkles and enhances lip volume. The difference in each comes down to cost, use, and lasting effects. Sthetix offers a variety of solutions for lip augmentation and can help you understand the differences to determine which filler is best for you based on your goals.
For Facial Volume Loss
Developed primarily for improving facial volume and contours, Belotero Volume and Juvederm Voluma can be used to replace volume lost with age. These fillers have a thicker consistency and can provide 6-12 months of increased volume and contour to your face.
Results are usually visible two to three weeks after your injections after the swelling has decreased. Patients typically only require one treatment to achieve the desired result.
For Shaping Lips & Filling Deep Lines
Treating lip wrinkles and loss of volume in the lips requires a skillful approach that leaves this area feeling as natural as it looks. Softer, thinner fillers, such as Juvederm Volift and Belotero Lips, are suggested for shaping and enhancing lips. The skilled injectors at Sthetix can also fill deep lines and nasolabial folds leaving you with a subtle, non-surgical facelift effect.
Average results for lip treatments last between three and four months but have been reported as lasting up to nine months. Optimal results are visible 1-2 weeks later, once the swelling has subsided.

For Smoothing Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Fine lines that run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the lips are the combined results of repeated facial movements and collagen loss in the skin. These lines are often referred to as nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
Very soft fillers, such as Juvederm Volite and Belotero Soft, produce immediate improvements. Once injected, this all-encompassing filler smoothes out deep creases, small lines, and wrinkles on your skin’s surface.
Changes to your face are immediately apparent following treatment and last up to six months. It is recommended to have injections twice per year for optimal results.

This review is from my heart. One of the best things I’ve done for myself happened when i met Mr Alvi. My face was looking very tired with sagging jowls, sunken cheeks, wrinkles, some very deep indeed and drooping eyes. Mr Alvi advised facial fillers and botox and I’m so very very glad I went ahead with this treatment. He has re structured my face and I,m the happiest person in the world. Not only do I look 100% better, but I feel fantastic. My Jowls have now disappeared, wrinkles have softened, eyes look awake and I have lovely natural looking cheeks and lips.
Mr Alvi is just remarkable, an absolute professional. He listened to my expectations and then advised, in great detail, what solutions he could offer. My expectations were exceeded . I’ve told him he’s now my new best friend whether he likes it or not
Caroline, Mr Alvi’s assistant, is so lovely and caring and made me feel so at ease when I arrived for my first consultation, This outstanding care was carried forward to each appointment, she’s just fantastic.
Michael and Jess, admin staff, should get an award customer service. From the minute I step into Sthetix they treated me as a friend, their great.
