We say: `You are beautiful the way you are. We merely wish to amplify your beauty`. That´s why we call ourselves MOOY Clinics: with a playful nod to the Dutch word for ‘beautiful´ (‘mooi’), we offer lip plumpers that work, and have a full range of other beauty products coming up.
MOOY Clinics didn´t happen overnight. In fact, it started way back in 2009, when I took the decision to have lip fillers. I was 20 and desperately wanted fuller lips. A plump pout to complete my look. Self-confidence. But non-invasive lip plumpers that actually work are virtually non-existent, and before long, the only solution I saw was to undergo plastic surgery. Although I had opted for temporary lip fillers, I was advised permanent ones called Bio Alcamid, as my lips were simply too small, according to the doctor. He also said that the product could be removed if I was not satisfied. This last promise was all I needed to hear to give it a go.
The result was disastrous.
Not only was the effect disappointing. The filler got stuck above my lip and would move around. Two years into the procedure, I developed pains. Removal was not an option anymore, since the fillers had become encapsulated. Surgery would result in permanently misshapen lips. It took me years to slowly get rid of them. Years in which I ran the risk of infections and suffered constant skin irritation. Years, also, in which my plan took shape to develop a safe, non-invasive product that truly works.
“We didn’t stop until we had developed a lip serum set that actually creates the effect of lip fillers – without injections. It’s the first of its kind!”
