In recent years, fuller lips have become very popular and the size and shape of the lips can be easily improved with a dermal filler treatment, giving more volume and a fuller appearance to the lips. Just a small amount of dermal filler can make a difference in plumping up your lips and making them more defined.
Many people are concerned that after their filler treatment they will leave the clinic with overly puffed lips, sometimes called a trout pout, but rest assured that this will never happen if you use a fully trained doctor at a reputable clinic. Choose a doctor who has done a lot of lip plumping treatments as you have to try to walk out of the clinic with luscious, sleek looking lips that should only get compliments.
- Lip enhancement: It generally involves giving your lips the contour and definition that time has destroyed and will also minimize lipstick bleeding. Dermal fillers will balance the cupid’s bow and also define the ridges of the nasolabial fold, further enhancing the characteristics of the lips.
- Lip augmentation: It involves inserting dermal filler into the lips to make the body of the lips fuller. You can add more substance by adding filler to the upper and lower lips.
Results include improving:
Vermilion border – giving contour and definition
The upper and lower lip: adds volume and substance to the lip.
Cupid’s Bow: balancing and defining the Cupid’s bow
Philtrum ridges: defines the characteristics of the lips.
Create fuller upper or lower lips
Eliminate fine lines around the mouth.
Dermal filler treatments are always a popular procedure, they only take about 15 minutes and the results are almost instantaneous. Typically one dermal filler syringe is more than enough to make a big difference and the results will last around 6 months. Whether the goal is to restore volume lost due to the aging process or to augment the lips for cosmetic reasons, an experienced physician will have the preparation, skill and technique to recommend what best suits your face.
The best thing about lip fillers is that the results are almost immediate. After the injections, you may have some swelling, but once it has gone down, you will see the effects without having to wait weeks to see your new lips. Filler treatments last a considerable amount of time and provide excellent results, but they are not a permanent solution and you will need complementary treatments.
