Lip Fillers are becoming increasingly popular as more and more people want the look of fuller plumper lips. But what exactly are they, and how do they work?
Lip fillers are a pure form of hyaluronic acid (HA): this is a natural substance found in the body. The advantage of using hyaluronic acid is that it attracts much more water to itself than its own weight resulting in a much more natural plumper look. As we age our natural HA begins to slow down thereby reducing its ability to bind with water. That’s why our lips look thinner with age.
However, these days lip fillers aren’t just being used for treating aged lips but are frequently being used by a much younger generation who want to achieve much fuller looking lips or are even looking to adjust the shape of their lips. This has been encouraged by celebrity icons such as Kylie Jenner, Marnie Simpson and Michelle Keegan all undergoing the treatment themselves with beautiful results.
Lip fillers can be used to create many different lip shapes depending on where and how the filler is injected into the lips. Lip fillers can create a natural smile giving the lips and the face a much softer feel to it. There is a range of different types of lip filler products, the product used will be mainly influenced by what sort of lip style you want to achieve. Bank Aesthetic offers a range of different types of fillers with options including Restylane, Juvederm and Teosyal. Restylane is often used to create a firmer and more pronounced lift to the lips, whereas Juvederm is a lot softer and creates volume but is not so pronounced. Teosyal is very similar to both, however, these fillers often last a lot longer than the other two. In your consultation the lip filler product would be discussed with your practitioner along with what desired shape you want your lips to have. By injecting more of the filler in the bottom lip it creates a much fuller but Angelina Jolie style of lips where-as by creating a plumper upper lip it gives a much more dramatic Hollywood style of lips.
Deciding on your lip shape should be mainly based around what lip style would suit you most. A lot of clients come in with a photograph of exactly the shape of lips they want however everyone’s lips will be a different shape so it’s very hard to achieve an exact replica of somebody else’s lip shape. If you are the slightest bit unsure as to what would suit you best feel free to book a consultation with us and we can discuss as to what shapes and style might be best suited for you.
