LipLase enhances lips to give a fuller, more natural appearance through the use of laser energy. It’s an undeniable fact. Plump, full lips are a highly desired aesthetic feature in today’s female population. Liplase is done through the use of our Fotona Laser that stimulates the production of collagen. LipLase cannot double the size of your lips, nor can it change them into a completely different shape. What LipLase can do via working with your own bodies capabilities, is stimulate new collagen growth. This results in a fuller, smoother pout. As an added bonus Liplase also smooths out those pesky lines surrounding our lips.
Ok, so what are the pros and cons here?
Fillers can produce amazing results in the hands of a Dr. Abraham. Results are generally seen immediately. There will usually be some swelling and or bruising for a few days to a week. Occasionally this can extend to a couple of weeks. There’s a risk of infection, lumps forming, lopsided lips, ulceration and in some cases an allergic reaction, although rarely seen. The results ‘generally’ last 4-6 months before further injections are required. Some people metabolise the formula faster and they may need fillers sooner. Fillers do not address the lipstick bleed lines though. They may ‘fill them out’ in the short term but cannot smooth them out as they have no effect on the ‘structure’ of the skin.
LipLase works almost in the opposite fashion to fillers. Rather than having immediate results wearing off over the next 4-6 months, LipLase results improve over those 4-6 months (up to 12 months). This is due to the time it takes for the collagen to be produced and laid down in new neat little packages. The protocol for LipLase is a series of 3-4 monthly sessions. You will notice gradual improvements after each session. Improvements will continue on for many months after the series is complete. There are no injections, nor anaesthetic required. Downtime is minimal with the lips peeling for 2 days post treatment. As with any procedure/treatment there is always risk of infection. As there is no penetration into the skin the risk is minimal.
