How much filler do we use to treat lips?

When we perform lip dermal filler treatment we use small volumes of filler. Typically patients use up to 1ml of filler – approxomiately 1/5th of a teapsoon in volume. Occasionally patients have a top up in about 4 weeks with another 1ml of filler if they are wanting a much fuller look.

 

 

Elastin – keeping the skin springy and supple

Your body contains an amazing protein called Elastin. Elastin is a highly elastic protein which helps prevent the skin from being stretched.
