    Characteristics of Ideal Lips

    Beautiful lips owe as much to science as to the artistic talents of the injector.

    A successful, attractive and natural-looking result is about improving the proportions of the lips considering both the mouth area and the face as a whole.

    Scientists have produced a series of statistics which help to show just how precise and considered the procedure should be.

    The characteristics of beautiful lips have been defined by scientists in great detail with a series of key attributes, including to name but a few:

    • The width of the lips should be approximately 40% of width of the lower face
    • The ideal lip ratio on the frontal view is 40% upper lip to 60% lower lip
    • The level of the lips should be parallel to the level of the eyes
    • The distance between the upper lip and the base of the nose is approximately half the distance between the lower lip and the chin
    • Viewed from the side, the upper lip will extend beyond the lower lip by a couple of millimetres

    There are many more detailed calculations in addition to the above, which the best aesthetic practitioners will utilise in administering lip fillers.

    SkinViva’s team of Aesthetic Doctors and Dentists are all trained by Dr Tim Pearce in the principles of the ‘golden ratio’ and facial proportion. Scientists have proved that the faces considered most beautiful are those which adhere most closely to the calculated mathematical ratios of proportion.

    So there you have it, at SkinViva, there’s a lot more to filling lips than ‘plumping up the volume’. That’s why SkinViva offer a choice of 5 quite specific lip enhancement procedures, each of which is designed to address a specific issue with a result which is always attractive and never over the top.
