Lips are the main focus on the face, and can tell a lot about the age , health and character of a person. Our lips are an indicator of ageing, since time spent biting or pursing them over time can lead to thin, deflated lips. Years spent talking, chewing, pouting, smoking or smiling can lead to the gathering of lines and wrinkles around the lips.Learn more about us at SKIN CLUB – Cosmetic Doctors Toorak – Toorak Lip Fillers
The good news is that however old you may be, you can rejuvenate your lips. Full plump lips are typically a sign of youthfulness, which is one of the main reasons women are enhanced with their lips. As a direct result of ageing, the lips begin to lose collagen and then they start thinning. Lip enhancement is a cosmetic non-surgical procedure that increases flat, thin lips, adds volume and improves shape. Dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in the body.
Important rules for enhancing lip fillers:
Safety-The preferred lip filler is based on hyaluronic acid, since side effects are extremely rare with this. This filler gives the lips a natural feel, and they are soft, and when needed, they are absorbable and reversible.
Natural looking results-Our lips are always on the go so we want it to look natural when we talk or smile. It is best to start with a small amount of filler for natural-looking lips, and add more later if needed. Less is often more and having natural-looking lips is best, rather than over-stuffing them.
Natural feeling-Choose an experienced cosmetic doctor with the correct injection technique and then there should not be lumpiness. It also helps to utilise a soft filler such as hyaluronic acid filler. Make sure your lips pass the “kiss test”-the person you ‘re kissing should not notice any improvement!
These lip areas can be enhanced by:
Vermilion border-fillers will give a better outline, improving definition and minimising bleed in the lipstick.
The upper and lower lip-may have injected filler into it, giving the lip more volume and substance.
Cupid bow-The definition of cupid bow gives a balance to female lips.
Philtrum ridges-the filler defines the ridges of the philtrum when injected, and further enhances the lips.
Dermal lip fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available, and are a very fast and easy way to improve your appearance. Typically they last between 6-9 months and because hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the skin, there is very little risk of bad reactions to the procedure.
Lip fillers can give the outline and definition of your lips that time has broken down.
