Many women are now seeking to change the shape of their lips for a number of reasons and there are real benefits of doing so. The procedure carried out to achieve a fuller lip is known as ‘lip augmentation’ which will improve the shape and size of the lips.
There are a number of advantages to having a lip augmentation procedure. Here are just a few:
1. More Youthful Look
A natural sign of ageing is that our lips will start getting thinner which can dramatically add years onto our appearance. However, this can be prevented by having lip augmentation. You are able to retain a more youthful look by having simple fillers injected to achieve a plumper lip.
2. Gradual Treatment
Lip enhancement is a gradual treatment, which means you are able to continue having injections until your desired look is achieved. The amount of substance injected into your lips can be controlled by your doctor, so there’s no need to worry about your lips looking out of place with the rest of your features.
3. Temporary or Permanent
If you’re unsure about whether lip augmentation is the correct treatment for you, there are both temporary and permanent options available. Permanent fillers will need top-ups to maintain results, but are very long-lasting and can last up to several months. On the other hand, there is a temporary option to bear in mind. Choosing to have lip augmentation on a short-term basis means you can try out the procedure before committing to results long-term.
4. Can Improve Your Smile
Having fuller lips can really improve a smile. Thin lips can disappear when you smile, which may leave you feeling insecure about your appearance. Having a lip augmentation procedure will fill out your lips to achieve a youthful smile and hopefully give you your confidence back.
5. Less Bruising
Compared to other dermal fillers, hyaluronic acid which is within the injection may cause less bruising and swelling. You can, therefore, leave the clinic without feeling self-conscious about the instant impact. There are also fewer side effects in comparison to other treatments, meaning you can resume your daily activities almost immediately.
