This includes dermal fillers, laser hair removal and chemical peels. And this is our guide to everything you should know about the most common goals and outcomes for lip filler injections.
What are lip fillers?
Lip fillers are one of the most popular options for dermal fillers. These are injections of dermal filler into the lip tissue that can add volume and change the shape of the lips overall. Different amounts of filler, injected into different parts of the lip, can have a different visual outcome. So what are the most popular of these intended outcomes?
What are the most popular intended outcomes for lip fillers?
Lip fillers can have a significant impact on the shape, structure and volume of the lips. As a result, the intended outcomes from lip filler injections often include:
- Increasing lip volume
- Enhancing the cupid’s bow
- Creating lip symmetry
- Upturning the corner of the lips
- Smoothing lines and wrinkles
Lip fillers for increasing lip volume
One of the most common reasons to choose lip fillers is to increase the volume of the lips. Lip fillers can help to create plump lips with a full volume and a balance between the top and bottom lips. It is essential that the latter is considered thoughtfully to ensure that the lips compliment the shape and structure of the face.
Lip fillers can enhance the cupids bow
The cupid’s bow is the definition of the top lip. A pronounced, deep and well defined V shape is the crucial factor to this lip style and structure. Lip fillers can be injected into the top lip tissue to reshape the lips and create this cupid’s bow style that is so popular. One thing to consider here though is the amount of filler used and the overall structure of the lower half of the face.
Lip fillers can create lip symmetry
Lips are not always symmetrical between the left and right sides for a variety of reasons, including accidents and injury as well as genetics. Lip fillers can help to address any imbalances or asymmetry to help enhance your look.
Lip fillers can be used to upturn the corners of the lips
As a natural part of the ageing process, or as a natural part of your genetic structure, the corners of the lips can begin to sag downwards. This can make you look tired, sad, or unhappy, even when you’re not. Precise and professional lip fillers can help to reshape the corners of the lips and instead turn these upwards, helping you look more youthful, and more positive.
Lip fillers can be used to smooth lines and wrinkles
The signs of ageing are often more visible and noticeable around the mouth, and these include fine lines and wrinkles. Lip fillers can be used effectively to smooth these lines and transform the skin around the face, but it’s essential that these fillers are only applied in very small amounts here, to create the right visual result.
