Lip fillers are one of the most popular dermal filler options available at the moment, offering plumper, fuller lips. But how can lip fillers change the face, and what kind of benefits can they offer? Well, here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic, we are Preston’s leading aesthetic practitioners. And we offer a range of high quality, effective, anti-ageing treatments, including lip fillers. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about the effect lip fillers can have on facial shape and structure.
What are lip fillers?
Lip fillers are injections of dermal filler into the lip tissue. This adds hyaluronic acid to the lip tissue, bringing nourishment and hydration, as well as an increase in volume. Over the past decades, the way that lip fillers are applied has changed dramatically. From large amounts of filler creating unnatural results, to subtle filler making small changes to the lips. And this can have an impact on the face itself, as well as the overall appearance of the lips.
So, how can lip fillers change the face?
Lip fillers change the face in a number of ways, including:
- Adding volume to the lips – the major effect lip fillers have is on the volume of the lips. Even small amounts of filler can add a subtle hint of volume to thin lips. This can help combat the signs of ageing, and help to retain a more youthful appearance, as fuller lips are associated with youth.
- Adding symmetry to the lips – lips in general are often not symmetrical or equal in weight or shape. Adding dermal fillers can help to change this, and bring symmetry to the lips. Small amounts of filler can be injected to add balance to both the top and bottom lips, as well as both the right and left side of the lips too. This will have a natural, subtle effect on the shape of the lips, and overall facial symmetry.
- Balancing facial features – increasing the size of the lips in a way that looks natural and subtle can help to balance out other facial features. From strong jawlines, to larger noses, the lips can be overlooked. Changing the size and proportion of the lips however, allows these features to find a more effective balance, changing your appearance and facial structure.
- Reducing wrinkles and fine lips – as a natural part of the ageing process, the skin becomes thinner, and loses collagen and elastin, which are generally responsible for giving the skin volume and flexibility. Losing this means that lines and wrinkles are more likely to appear, and these often occur around the mouth. Lip fillers can help to maintain the skin volume and dramatically reduce the opportunity for these lines and wrinkles to form, as well as reducing the appearance of any wrinkles or lines that have already formed.
