Lip Filler / Lip Injections
Lip filler is a popular and effective way to turn back the clock on thinning lips and wrinkles around them. Lip filler, also known as lip injections, are a type of aesthetic medicine that can help reduce the signs of aging while providing a fuller, more youthful-looking pout.
At Clinique Esthétique HoMa, lip filler is applied by Dr. Mansour who has a vast knowledge of facial anatomy and medical aesthetic treatments.
Lip filler can be used to add fullness and definition to thin lips or to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth.
The procedure generally takes about 30 minutes and results can be seen immediately.
Lip injections can be used to correct asymmetry, correct downturned corners of the mouth, and augment the shape of the lips.
The results from lip filler are long-lasting, typically lasting up to 6 months, and can be adjusted in future sessions to achieve the desired result.

How do lip fillers work?
There are many different types of lip fillers a person can get, based on their preference. Some people prefer to get a smaller lip filler, while others prefer a bigger filler. There is no wrong answer, as each person's preference will be different. Dr. Mansour will ensure she understands your personal goals for lip augmentation and will choose the best product based on your goals.
At Clinique Esthétique HoMa, the lip fillers used are made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body that helps to keep the skin hydrated. Hyaluronic acid helps to add volume to the lips, making them appear fuller and more defined.
The lip fillers used at Clinique Esthétique HoMa are carefully chosen to ensure the safety of the patient and to achieve the desired results.
A topical anesthetic will be applied to the lips to ensure your complete comfort during the lip enhancement procedure. Most people report only feeling a little discomfort during llip filler treatments.
After the injections, you will see an immediate difference in the appearance of your lips. They will appear fuller and more defined.

Comfort is of the upmost importance at Clinique Esthétique HoMa. We pre-numb the area with one of the most powerful, yet safe, numbing creams.
What if I don't like the results?
The beauty of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers is that we can dissolve it with a solution called Hylase! This mimics the natural enzyme you have in your body, that turns the filler into sugar water and it is naturally expelled out of your body.
