The demand for lip fillers continues to skyrocket. Google searches for the treatment are ten times higher than six years ago with no sign of abating,
Years ago, lip enhancement procedures were only accessible for wealthy clients, but today lip augmentation is normally a quick, non-surgical procedure with minimal downtime and an affordable price.
Although lip fillers are a temporary cosmetic treatment, they add plumpness and volume to the lips for around six months, so deciding on the look you want to accomplish is not something you should take lightly.
There is no doubt that Kylie Jenner, who initially claimed her super-plump new lips were down to makeup skills, has had an enormous effect on the lip filler industry. Women of all ages enter our clinics, asking for “lips the same as Kylies.”
However, in the same way that you can take a photo along to your hairdressing appointment to show your hairdresser the style you want, it may not be feasible due to your hair type. You are likely to feel disappointed and possibly annoyed with the stylist when she tells you she cannot do it. Everyone’s physical features are different, and what might work well for one person’s lips and face shape will not look good on another.
Nowadays, fashion involves much fakeness; fake tans, fake lashes, boob jobs, fat transference from one body part to another, fake nails, and of course, fillers. Not everyone likes these trends; in fact, if comments on social media are anything to go by, most see them as phony and a turn-off. However, all the treatments mentioned above can enhance a person’s looks and improve self-confidence if the procedures are not overdone. When it comes to lip fillers, in most client cases, less is definitely more.
If your lips are naturally thin, and you turn up to work after the weekend with Kylie lips, everyone is going to notice, and your new lips will get plenty of attention, but it may not be the type of attention you want. It would be glaringly obvious you had work done, and your unrealistically huge lips would most unlikely not suit your face, particularly if you have small features.
Although some of our clients demand a full-on “done” look, a subtle, slightly fuller, natural result is what most people want, and that is what they get.
You will come across people both online and offline and not realise they have lip fillers simply because they look fabulous. At our clinics, we like to focus on this type of subtle lip enhancement that looks natural but improves your lips contour, hydration, and above all, suits your facial shape and features.
Lip Volume Replacement
Adding volume to the lips consists of increasing the plumpness within the borders. This is not an all-or-nothing proposal. We aim to give you full, subtle youthful lips without them looking dramatic or like you have a pair of pink chipolata sausages attached to your face.
We replace the pout time has taken away by injecting the filler discerningly rather than randomly to avoid inflating them all over to get the duck face result. If a client desires, we can always add extra volume, but initially injecting in the right spots allows us to achieve more attractive lips by restoring what was originally there without producing an unnatural result.
Subtle Lip Filler Options
Lip fillers were around long before even Grandma Jenner was born, as doctors formulated the first injectable lip fillers in the early 19th century. The procedure consisted of injecting fat into the lips. Though the treatment was not for beauty aspirations but to help restore lips damaged by tuberculosis.
The day’s innovative thinkers soon recognised that the treatment could improve a recipient’s looks, and it wasn’t long before practitioners were administering lip fillers purely for aesthetic purposes.
Since then, a diverse range of substances has been used as fillers. These materials include liquid paraffin wax during the first 20 years of the 20th century (which often had disastrous results) and silicone in the 1960s, which made way for the dubious cow collagen in the 1970s.
Lip enhancement as we know it today began in the 1990s when cosmeticians started using human collagen as filler. Unlike previous substances, it is perfectly safe to inject human collagen into the lips. Still, the results were nowhere near as compelling as those provided by hyaluronic acid, which beauty salons almost universally use today. The human body naturally produces hyaluronic acid, a more reliable alternative to collagen, and the results last longer.
There are many different brands of hyaluronic acid lip fillers used for lip enhancement. These include Restylane, Juvederm, Belotero Balance, Elevess, and Hylaform, to name a few.
Juvederm and Restylane are the most favoured hyaluronic acid lip fillers. They’re considered safe, immediately effective, and deliver natural-looking results. Both brands are sold with or without lidocaine, a local topical anaesthetic that reduces pain experienced during the procedure.
Book an Appointment
If you’re finding your lips are thinning due to age, or you have horizontal lines around your mouth, it can lower your confidence. Luckily, subtle lip fillers can correct thinning lips and lip lines and restore your beautiful smile.
If you are a younger person who would feel fuller lips would make you more attractive, we can deliver the results you desire.
In addition to being long-lasting, lip enhancement treatment causes little or no side effects. You will likely see some bruising and perhaps experience slight soreness after the treatment, but this will fade within a few days.
Therefore, if you want fuller younger-looking natural lips, contact us to arrange an appointment today and get the exact look you desire.
