Are We Seeing the End of Designer Lips and the Perfect Pout?

There’s no denying the trend for luscious lips and augmented pouts, which celebrity influencers like Kylie Jenner have been instrumental in promoting.

As you may have heard, Kylie Jenner has now famously reduced the size of her lips, which shooted her to super stardom, in favour of embracing a more natural look.

Although dermal fillers can be used to improve your pout and increase the volume, the main outcome that would want to be attained is one which will harmonise and balance what you already have.

This ethos will provide you with a natural and subtle enhancement, which helps to improve self-confidence and self-esteem. Rather than over-dramatic transformations which have been responsible for insecurities and copy-cat lips which don’t help to complement the patients natural features.

Here is all the information you need to know before you invest in lip fillers.

What Are Lip Fillers:

Lip fillers or dermal fillers encompasses a wide range of products, and is an expression which describes treatment that restores volume and structure to the face. They can be used in the lips to help provide a natural looking enhancement.

What Are They Made of Now?

Dermal fillers work to smooth fine lines, wrinkles and crepey skin. They contain high levels of HA (hyaluronic acid) which has the effect of attracting and retaining water, instantly improving the skin’s appearance and texture by restoring its natural plumpness.

Although only a few decades ago lips were being injected with silicone and collagen. Due to their unpredictable nature they were achieving a less than desirable effect, resulting in volumisers being branded with a bad reputation.

Cosmetic industry technology and techniques have greatly advanced since then, with hyaluronic acid based fillers giving subtle, natural-looking lip enhancements.

Fillers Which Are Used:

Make sure the clinic that you choose uses reputable brands. All the fillers chosen should have been put through rigorous testing and clinical trials so you can ensure the fillers which will be used are malleable and soft providing natural results with minimal side effects. Some fillers also have Lidocaine built into the product, meaning treatment is comfortable, and with ultra thin needles, relatively painless.

What if I Don’t Like Them?

If you don’t like your lip fillers, the good news is they aren’t a permanent fixture.

As the filler used is temporary it will be naturally broken down over a period of months.
Occasionally these fillers need to be dissolved when the aesthetic treatment has not produced the desired outcome or there is a complication which is compromising healthy tissue.

Using a prescription only product which Dentists and Doctors are permitted to keep a stock of in their clinic for emergency purposes, the filler can be dissolved.

If you are considering having treatment with a non health-care professional, be mindful, because if a complication were to occur, and they do not have this emergency drug to hand, it can affect the management of this complication.

Who is Best to See?

With injectable treatments, it is advisable that you go to a medically-trained professional who has extensive experience in these types of treatments. While knowledge of the facial anatomy is key, the practitioner should ideally have an artistic eye, working with your facial ratios and desired result.

Many prefer to avoid the excessive look, and this is possible if you go and see a practitioner who understands your requirements and facial proportions. Trout pouts are a thing of the past with these sleek dermal fillers, as they integrate far better into the tissue than previous dermal fillers.
