As we age, so our lips lose the fullness of youth, and lines begin to appear around the mouth. PermaLip is the first quick safe and easily reversible permanent lip implant to offer fuller, more alluring lips.

What is it and how does it work?

The PermaLip implant, shaped from soft cohesive gel silicon is available in a variety of diameters and lengths to suit the unique nature of each person's lips. A small incision is made at either end of the lip, and the implant threaded through and centred. The same procedure is then repeated for the other lip. Being a soft, solid elastomer, the implant mimics the contours of the lips. A single procedure lasts as long as required, although reversal is easy and quick.

Does it hurt?

The procedure is carried out under a local anaesthetic.

Are there any side effects?

There is no visible scarring as the tiny incisions are made in the corner of the mouth. The procedure is the only CE marked medical device designed for lip enhancement, and is the first-ever natural-looking alternative to topping-up with dermal fillers. The implants are soft and malleable, so the look and, perhaps more importantly, the feel, is entirely natural.

How long does the treatment take?

PermaLip is one of a number of treatments available from Snowberry Clinic. Normal life may be resumed the following day although patients may experience a few days of bruising and swelling

How long will the effects of the treatment last?

As the name implies, PermaLip is a permanent treatment, although it can be reversed.
