Having a filler injection to plump up your lips has in recent times become as mainstream a procedure as teeth whitening. A trend that in the US began in earnest when people sat up and noticed the enhanced lips of reality TV celebrity and Kardashian family member, Kylie Jenner.
The 90s was the era of over-plucked eyebrows, the noughties a time of breast enlargements, but this decade is hotly becoming the age of lip enhancements. Google searches for lip treatment is actually 10 times higher this year than the figure from 2012. And in 2016, lip enhancement became the most popular non-surgical treatment.
The shape and volume of your lips is governed by your genetic code and by your age. Plus you are exposed to UV light and pollutants, particularly if you’re a smoker. A tendency towards volume reduction and less definition can noticeably affect the balance of the face.
Filler will transform your lips to give you that alluring pout. As it’s possible to administer the filler in finely metered quantities, the lips can be sculpted to even them up if irregular in shape as well as add volume. The effect is a more balanced look.
Younger girls who already have beautiful, youthful lips want to make more of a statement. They often want ‘fuller’, else they are more concerned with changing the shape to lend them a look they will feel happier with.
Other ladies, not so interested in the Kylie Jenner look, are opting instead for a natural aesthetic. They want their lips to be very natural and minimal, to improve the lip border and prevent lipstick bleed. Older patients often want to regain the lips they had in their youth.
Ladies of all ages are considering lip augmentation.
In order to achieve the perfect pout, it’s essential that you seek out the services of a professional. You should always ask a practitioner how many times they have performed the procedure. Though great places to go for a facial, don’t be tempted to get your lips done at a spa or a beauty salon.
