Lip Enhancement – Lip Fillers

The mouth and lips are involved in nearly every facial expression of the face and they experience a great deal of stress and movement over the years. As part of the natural ageing process, our lips lose volume, the skin becomes weak and thin, and fine lines and wrinkles become exaggerated. Lip enhancement with dermal fillers, known as a lip filler treatment, is most commonly used to add volume and plump the lips, giving them a rejuvenating boost. However, dermal fillers can also be applied to the boarder of the skin to contour and add definition, and to the skin around the mouth, reducing lines and wrinkles.

How Do Our Lips Age?

The mouth area experiences a high level of movement throughout our lives. This constant level of activity puts stress and strain on the skin of the lips and mouth and creates permanent lines and wrinkles.

The skin on the lips itself is also very delicate with just a thin protective layer of skin. Lacking sebaceous glands as well as melanin pigments, the lips have no built in UV protection and so are particularly vulnerable to premature ageing as a result of dehydration and sun damage.

How Can Dermal Fillers Enhance The Lip And Lip Area?

The aim of lip augmentation with dermal fillers, is to achieve natural looking lips that are not artificially plumped up but in balance with the facial features.

Popular target areas include:

Crooked / Uneven Lips

Asymmetrical lips can be genetic or the result of an accident or illness. Precise application of lip fillers can provide balance and symmetry to specific areas of concern of the lip and mouth area.

Reducing Lip Wrinkles

Wrinkles around the lip boarder, also known as smoker’s lines, are vertical lines that run from the upper lip towards the nose, or from the lower lip towards the chin. Dermal fillers around the mouth and lip can be used to tighten the skin and fill out these fine lines and wrinkles.

Volumising The Lip Body

Lip filler targeting the fleshy part of the body of the lip can restore balance and fullness, correct asymmetry and enhance their natural shape. As a pleasant side effect, injecting the lip contours can also lead to a reduction in the appearance of upper lip wrinkles.

Lip Outline And Boarders

Clear contours around the lips give them a full, youthful enhancement. Blurred lines and poor lip contouring make mouth wrinkles look deeper and can lead to lipstick bleeding. By adding definition to the lips with lip filler these lines can be reduced and the definition of the lips defined.

Cupid’s Bow

The v-shaped contour of the centre of the upper lip has two peaks shaped like a bow, hence the name “Cupid’s Bow”. The definition of the bow varies widely across patients. Lip fillers can be used to specifically enhance the shape, definition and contour of flat upper lips to achieve a more Cupid’s Bow-like appearance.

The White Roll

The natural boarder of the upper lip has a very slightly raised edge that reflects light giving it the name “the white roll”. As we age, the definition of this ridge is lost. With targeted and very precise lip filler injections, we can accentuate the upper lip boarder and restore the natural curl.

Will Results Look Natural?

The key to achieving natural lip fillers is to keep the relationship between the upper lip and the lower in balance with each other, as well as with the rest of the face. Some patients with strong facial features can naturally carry large, voluptuous lips. Others with smaller, delicate features will look over enhanced if too much lip filler is used.

Are Lip Fillers Safe?

Dermal fillers are a well-tolerated substance with a high safety profile, and they can safely be used on most patients. Those not suitable for dermal fillers include those with a history of reactions to dermal fillers, those with bleeding disorders, those who are pregnant or breast feeding and those with known allergies to any of the ingredients in the filler used.
