Woman who felt embarrassed by her dry, chapped lips claims injecting dermal FILLER helped cure the condition – after she went for the treatment to plump her pout
- EXCLUSIVE: Sara, 28, from Wimbledon, wanted to boost her ‘small’ lips
- Struggled for years with dehydrated, cracked lips and noticed lines appearing
- Always used moisturiser but claimed nothing helped – until she had dermal fillers
- Clinician said fillers can have moisturising effect on lips due to hyaluronic acid
Sara, 28, says the decision to get fillers in the first place was to help boost her pout, which she always felt was too small for her face.
But when her dry lips suddenly disappeared too, she realised she’d hit on a welcome side-effect.
Sara, a personal assistant from Wimbledon, south west London, explained: ‘In the last few years my lips started to get really, really dry.
Dr Bashar Bizrah, founder of the Beyond Med Centre clinic in London – where Sara had her lip filler injections – says there could be a scientific reason why fillers might have a moisturizing effect.
He explains: ‘You typically see an explosion of dry lips in either hot or cold weather.
‘The colder the air is, the less humidity it carries, while the summer months cause sun damage and dehydration.
‘But dermal fillers in your lips could, in theory, help to prevent chapped lips if it’s a problem you’re particularly susceptible to.
