If you’ve long been dreaming of a pout that Angelina Jolie would be proud of, chances are you’ve thought about or maybe even had, lip augmentation.
Lucia Aesthetic & Dermatology Center in Jumeirah 2 is an advanced cosmetic medical center that offers this type of treatment among many other non-surgical procedures and is considered a pioneer in the Dubai aesthetics industry.
Consistently seeking the latest trends and technological advances in aesthetics and anti-ageing, this luxurious clinic is currently in the midst of expansion and a reputable center that specializes in fillers, Botox and laser treatments.
Lucia Aesthetic & Dermatology Center places an emphasis on comfort, convenience and peace of mind and this is clearly reflected in the plush, minimalist design of this bijou clinic and the warm, welcoming atmosphere offered by its staff.
It’s imperative for anyone considering altering their face or body with aesthetical procedures that they undergo a thorough consultation with a professional and Dr. Radmilla Lukian is undoubtedly, the best in the business.
A member of the European Board of Certified Dermatologists and Laser Specialists, Dr. Radmilla has extensive experience in non-surgical facial rejuvenation and has significant training of all aspects in the field of aesthetic dermatology and anti-ageing medicine in the United States, Europe and Asia. Her dedication to excellence and patients’ wellbeing are evident upon first meet and her comforting nature immediately puts you at ease. During your consultation, you are asked what your aesthetics objectives are and why you are looking to have fillers; you’ll discuss size, shape and lifestyle – all important elements to achieve your desired end result.
Lip-fillers are an extremely personal choice and what may work for the likes of Kylie Jenner may not work for you in your daily life so it is important to consider your overall lifestyle when opting for size and shape.
Lucia Aesthetic & Dermatology Center uses both Allergan and Galderma filler products from the Juvederm and Restylane families respectively. Having mutually decided with Dr. Radmilla that the latest form of Restylane, Emervel, was a suitable solution for my specific lip augmentation requirements we set about the task of the procedure itself.
It’s important to note that the overall effect depends on two main things: the amount injected (0.5ml and 1.0ml are commonplace for lip fillers) and the pace of absorption into the body, of which, each individual differs. For the effect that I am seeking as well as previous experience of how my body reacts to fillers, we opt for 1.0ml of filler injected into a series of precise points around my lip line.
You may recognize the name Restylane as an anti-ageing filler used for skin-boosting treatments designed to combat the appearance of wrinkles and enhance facial contours as well as creating fuller lips. Restylane fillers are particularly useful for increasing lost volume in the face and re-defining the lips which is a problem sign of ageing.
In this day and age, it’s imperative to know what you’re putting into your body so what exactly is Restylane? Well, in short, it’s composed of hyaluronic acid. This natural substance is found in your body and over time diminishes due to the ageing process, decreasing the elasticity and fullness of the skin. By expert admiration of Restylane (and indeed any FDA approved filler) into wrinkles, lips or problem areas, the end result is fuller, younger looking facial features that can last up to 6 months.
The treatment itself, whilst not painful is somewhat uncomfortable, is made more bearable by Dr. Radmilla, an expert in her professionalism and personable in her demeanor, who keeps her patients distracted enough to divert attention away from what is happening yet alert enough to be coherent in the process; this combination immediately calms any nerves. I’m told some patients even use the 10-15 minutes duration to take a nap.
Results with lip-filler are instant, with an immediate improvement visible in the treatment area.
However, you may experience some swelling and slight bruising in the first 24-hours post treatment which is completely normal. It takes around 5 days for the lips to settle and the final result to show. What you’re left with is fuller, natural looking lips that not only balance your facial features but also manage to give the illusion of youthfulness whatever your age.
Aside from fillers and anti-ageing procedures, Lucia Aesthetic & Dermatology Center is also experts in non-invasive fat loss. CoolSculpting® by Zeltiq™ is a revolutionary treatment that sees men and women flock to the center to take advantage of this fat-freezing technology treatment. The only FDA approved fat-freezing device on the market, CoolSculpting® gently and effectively removes fat from targeted areas of the body that are stubborn in responding to traditional diet and exercise. Areas such as the abdomen, back and the dreaded love-handles, are particular problem regions that CoolSculpting® can assist with. Results are achieved using the advanced Cryolipolysis™ technology, which freezes the targeted tissue to break down the fat cells for easy removal, without any harm to the surrounding tissue. Fat cells have been proven to be more vulnerable to cold than the surrounding tissue. This stimulates a natural fat removal process that continues for several months after the procedure. Patients at Lucia Aesthetic & Dermatology Center can benefit from noticeable yet natural-looking results in fat loss with an overall smoother body contour.
So, to improve your appearance, whether turning back the clock with an anti-ageing facial filler or shedding inches with revolutionary fat-freezing technology, Jumeirah’s leading Aesthetic & Dermatology Center has you covered.
