Lips are the main focal point on the face and they can say a lot about a person's age, health and character. Our lips are an indicator of aging, as time sent biting or pursuing them can lead to thin, deflated lips over time. Years spend talking, chewing, pouting, smoking or smiling can lead to lines and wrinkles nesting around the lips.
The good news is, you can rejuvenate your lips however old you might be. Typically, full plump lips are a sign of youthfulness, which is one of the main reasons women have their lips enhanced. The lips start losing collagen as a direct result of aging, and then they start to thin. Lip enhancement is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that increases flat, thin lips, adds volume and enhances the shape. Dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance that occurs naturally in the body.
Important rules for lip fillers enhancement:
Safety – The preferred filler for lips is hyaluronic acid based, as with this, side effects are extremely rare. This filler gives lips a natural feel, and they're soft, and they are absorbable and reversible if needed.
Natural looking results – Our lips are always on the go, so when we talk or smile we want it to look natural. For natural looking lips it's best to start with a small amount of filler and add more later, if needed. Less is often more and it's best to have natural looking lips, instead of over-stuffing them.
Natural feel – Choose an experienced cosmetic doctor with the right injection technique and then lumpiness should not occur. Using a soft filler such as hyaluronic acid filler also helps. Make sure that your lips pass the “kiss test” – the person kissing you should not notice any enhancement!
You can enhance these areas of the lips:
Vermilion border – fillers will give a better outline and will improve definition and minimize lipstick bleed.
The upper and lower lip – can have filler injected into it, giving more volume and substance to the lip.
Cupid bow – defining the cupid bow gives female lips a balance.
Philtrum ridges – when injected, the filler defines the philtrum ridges, further enhancing the lips.
Dermal fillers for the lips are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available, and are a very quick and easy way to improve your look. They typically last between 6 – 9 months and because hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the skin, the risk of bad reactions to the procedure is very small.
Lip fillers can give your lips the outline and definition that time has destroyed.
