If you aren’t happy with the way your mouth or lips look, then you’re not alone. Many of us dislike our smile lines, lip shape and smoker’s lines. As we get older, our face starts to lose volume and elasticity, making parts of our face, such as the lips, look flatter and thinner.
Lip augmentation treatment can;
- Add more volume to thin lips
- Balance out uneven lips
- Create a pronounced cupids bow
- Define and shape the lip border
- Reduce fine smokers lines
Lip fillers enhance the lip volume for those people who are unhappy with the size or shape of their lips. We might want to balance out the upper and bottom lip proportions, or feel self-conscious that the lip appears to disappear when we speak or smile. The fillers are hyaluronic based, which is a substance naturally found in the body and this helps the skin keep its softness and moisture, while increasing the volume.
Some people may also start to notice that as they get older their cupid’s bow is less defined. The cupid’s bow flattens naturally with age and becomes less prominent. Using fillers in the philtrum; the groove which runs from the nose to the middle of the upper lip, can restore and enhance the cupid’s bow.
The natural shape and structure of your lips will influence the shape and volume that the practitioner can achieve. Extra volume on lips which are already full usually gives great results, however this might not look as good on thin lips, where a small amount of filler will give a more subtle look. Younger clients often go for a fuller pout, whereas older women want volume, as well as rejuvenation of the area around the lips for a more natural result.
At your appointment your practitioner can;
- Inject just one lip
- Add volume into the top lip and bottom lip
- Plump up both lips and the vermilion border
- Enhance the cupid’s bow
Women of all ages have their lips enhanced, with the younger women usually wanting a fuller looking lip, while the more mature women usually opting for a more subtle look. As we age, the upper and lower lips become less full, there’s less definition on the borders and the mouth can start to droop downwards at the corners.
There are many ways to enhance your lips, depending on what you want the result to look like, and you and the practitioner will decide which look will suit your face.
