A quick scan through any fashion magazine, billboards or for that matter even TV will bring up faces that are not only gorgeous, but also have perfect facial features – smooth, glowing skin, well defined eyes, a shapely nose and full, luscious lips. Of course, we know that a lot of these photos are digitally enhanced to remove imperfections. But that being said, it is possible to enhance one’s existing facial features in real life. Most people are aware of many surgical and non surgical ways to achieve flawless skin and bold eyes, but not everybody is aware that it is also possible to get the perfect set of lips, with the help of dermal fillers. And so, this post is going to be about what you need to know about lip fillers in Melbourne.
When can lip fillers help?
Just as age and environmental factors can play havoc on our skin, they can also affect the way our lips look. Over time, our lips can get wrinkly, or lose volume and look “aged”. This is because the components which give our skin its natural structure and volume, like collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid begin to reduce, leaving our skin and lips thinner and more prone to lip lines, or fine wrinkles. This is the point when dermal fillers can replace lost volume and smoothen out fine lines and wrinkles to restore our natural, youthful look. In fact, it is not very different from turning back the clock on an ageing look!
Having said this, it is also important to have realistic expectations about what can be achieved with lip fillers. Lip fillers can only enhance what you naturally have, and will not completely change your lips. You could consult with us at our Melbourne clinic to explore what is possible and the potential results of lip augmentation.
How do lip fillers work?
Dermal lip fillers can help increase the size and volume of lips, so that they look plumper, while still looking natural. These fillers are strategically injected into parts of the lip as well as its surrounding areas, so as to improve the overall shape, symmetry and volume of the lips, and the surrounding skin. It is important to also fill in the area around the lips for a more natural and balanced look, and also ensure that the lips look proportional to the rest of the face, and the upper and lower part look good together. Else your lips might end up looking “duck-like”, and you sure don’t want that, do you?
The lip filler is usually injected using a blunt needle, or a cannula so that there is minimal bruising and less downtime. Depending on the type of lip filler used, they can be temporary or permanent.
It helps to go to an experienced and reliable cosmetic clinic, just like Victorian Laser & Skin Clinic in Melbourne for your lip job. We have cosmetic doctors who have helped many patients achieve desired results, without a hitch, and we’re confident you can be one of them too.
