This may not come as a shock to you – unless you live under a rock – but there has been quite a dramatic influx of requests from patients to get fuller looking lips, via lip injections. This trend is no doubt due to the plumper pout of Kylie Jenner (one of the Kardashian-Jenner crew members) who, back in May, revealed she had in fact opted for lip fillers and NOT sucked on a bottle.
So what are lip injections? And why is everyone so keen to have them?
With the advancement of technology and science, dermal fillers that produce the caricature results we are so used to seeing in the tabloids are a thing of the past. Instead, the use of HA based fillers mean natural-looking results can be achieved.
HA is a naturally occurring molecule which exists in our bodies. It is what gives us that fresh, plump look when we are younger. However, as we age (just as our collagen levels do) HA, and our bodies’ ability to produce it, diminishes.
Advancements in Dermal Fillers
Creating dermal fillers made up of this very product means that no foreign product is administered into the body, results are not permanent but are long-lasting, and outcomes are subtle. The leading manufacturers of these dermal fillers are Allergan, who have released both the Juvéderm range and the VYCROSS™ range. They difference in product allows injectors to use the most suitable product for the particular areas treated; for example, an area like the lips will require a smooth, light product, whereas the cheeks would require a more robust form of facial filler.
