Lips help to define a face and are closely linked to ideas of attractiveness – here’s how to go about getting a lip enhancement treatment.
While lip enhancement treatments may have only surged in popularity fairly recently, women have regularly been using lipstick to enhance their lips and make them appear fuller since the early 20th century.
There is no doubt about, this is a feature that many people see as central to the way they look – and one that many seek to draw attention to.
Lips are seen to represent sensuality and full lips are very much in the media glare with Instagram keeping the focus on perfect pouts.
Benefits of lip enhancement treatment
Many people are not born with naturally full lips and may find that thin lips make them feel self-conscious about their appearance.
Lips also lose their natural plumpness as part of the aging process and people who have enjoyed a fuller pout in their younger years may resent the loss of definition and find it aging.
Wrinkles often appear on the lips adding to concerns about the signs of ageing.
Lip enhancement treatment can bring a subtle change by making lips more pronounced and bringing added definition to the face.
Rather than undergoing surgery, the benefits of lip enhancement treatment include:
- Long-lasting but not permanent change
- Quick procedure
- Minimal side effects
- Effects can be built up through repeat treatments
What to expect during a lip enhancement treatment
Lip fillers are used to give the lips added shape and volume. To achieve this hyaluronic acid – which is also found naturally in the body – is injected into the lip area.
The area to be treated will be sterilised before the treatment, which is applied to the outer part of the lip and contains a local anaesthetic to help numb any pain.
While lip enhancement treatment may cause some discomfort it should not be painful.
Results and an improved shape and volume should be seen very quickly although there may be some swelling, which should recover with 24 hours.
