Lip Fillers – What You Need to Know

Fuller lips are an enduring sign of youth and beauty, often associated with sensuality. As we age, the lips can become thinner and lose their definition, which can give the face a more aged appearance. Fuller lips, on the other hand, can make the face appear more youthful and attractive. 

While fuller lips are a sign of youth and beauty, it’s always important to approach lip fillers with caution to avoid overdoing it, or even worst, putting your health at risk with lip fillers containing dangerous ingredients or done by unqualified clinicians.

    In this post, we’ll discuss the value of paying a bit extra for a medically qualified and experienced clinician and why you should avoid unregulated and potentially dangerous treatments.

    What are lip fillers?

    Lip fillers, also known as lip enhancement or lip augmentation, are a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves injecting dermal filler into the lips to create a fuller, plumper appearance.

    The procedure is relatively quick and can be done in as little as 30 minutes, with results lasting anywhere from 6 to 12 months, depending on the type of lip filler.

    The Popularity of Lip Fillers

    Fuller lips have become a popular trend in recent years, with many people looking to achieve the same look as their favourite celebrities. While it’s okay to draw inspiration from others, it’s important to remember that everyone’s facial anatomy is different and what looks good on someone else may not necessarily look good on you.

    That’s why at SkinViva Clinic, our experienced and qualified aesthetic medical professionals take the time to analyse your lip proportions in relation to your nose, jaw, and chin before planning a treatment that will make your lips fit beautifully with the rest of your features. We take great care in analysing and shaping the details of your cupids bows, vermillion border, and philtrum ridges (which run from the bottom of your nose to the top of your lips) to ensure that the subtle details are present and that you achieve natural and young-looking beautiful results.

    Avoiding the ‘Trout Pout’

    One of the biggest concerns with lip fillers is the risk of looking overdone. A ‘trout pout’ is a common side effect of poorly executed lip filler injections, where the lips appear too full and unnatural. This is why it’s important to choose a qualified and experienced clinician who understands facial anatomy and has a keen eye for aesthetics. A good clinician will be able to achieve a natural-looking result that complements your facial features and doesn’t leave you unsatisfied with the result.

    Choosing the Right Aesthetic Clinician

    When it comes to lip fillers, it’s not worth taking a risk on an unqualified or inexperienced practitioner. The cosmetic industry is largely unregulated, which means that anyone can set themselves up as a practitioner, regardless of their qualifications or experience. It’s important to do your research and choose a clinician who is medically qualified and has experience in administering lip fillers, like our experienced team of aesthetic medical professionals,  They should also be using reputable and approved products to ensure your safety as you don’t want to put your health at risk. At SkinViva, we exclusively use Juvederm fillers for our lip enhancement treatments as are considered the most advanced products in the market and are the result of years of clinical research and development.

    The primary ingredient in all Juvederm fillers is hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the skin, meaning that the fillers are entirely reversible and will break down naturally over time if not removed. Furthermore, because hyaluronic acid is naturally created in our body, fillers made with this ingredient are highly tolerated by the body. This reduces the chances of side effects and skin reactions.
