And this is our guide to everything you should know about achieving the perfect pout with lip filler treatments.
What are the key factors for the perfect pout?
Using lip fillers to change and reshape your lips is a common and popular aesthetic procedure chosen by people of all ages and genders. But there should never be a one size fits all approach to lip filler, as all facial structures are unique and different, and different people will want to achieve different results. As a result, the key factors for the perfect pout are all about the unique nature of the lips, and these include:
- The intended results
- The amount of lip filler
- The facial shape
The perfect pout is different for everyone
Everyone who wants lip fillers tends to have a different idea of what the perfect result should be. As a result it is important to know what you yourself are expecting from your lip filler treatment. And its not all about volume either. In fact, lip fillers can generally change the lips and your pout in three different and distinct ways including:
- Lifting the cupid’s bow
- Increasing lower and upper volume in proportion
- Defining the shape of the lips
For some people, the perfect pout will involve an adjustment or tweak to all three areas, while for others only one factor may need to be altered to achieve the perfect result.
The amount of lip filler for the perfect pout
As you may have guessed by now, the perfect amount of lip filler to create the perfect pout will be different for every person. The amount of dermal filler injected into your lips should always be proportional to the shape and structure of your face. In addition, the lips themselves will need to be balanced to avoid the early lip filler disasters related to the duck face, or trout pout, of the mid 2000s. In general the upper lip will be smaller in volume than the lower lip, with a roughly 60/40 split. Working with a professional team like us here at the Skin and Wellbeing Clinic means that your facial proportions will be taken into consideration at your first consultation, so an individual plan can be developed for your perfect pout.
The perfect pout will complement your facial shape
The final factor towards achieving the perfect pout is to consider the shape and structure of the face. As discussed above, the amount of lip filler injected into your lips to increase the volume should always be proportional to the shape and structure of your face. But this also relates to the reshaping of the lips as well. Dermal filler is not just used to add volume but also to give shape and definition to the lips, and again this will need to be proportional to provide natural, subtle, and stunning results.
