Lip Fillers: Why are They so Popular?
Originally, lip fillers along with other fillers were generally done for aging patients. This was due to the fact that the aging process causes changes to a person’s appearance. The lips become thinner, the skeletal structure changes, skin volume is lost, and other factor all negatively impact a person’s lips. However, fast forward to today and now more than ever we are seeing younger people take advantage of lip fillers not only as a preventative measure but to achieve a plump and voluminous look for their lips.
Thanks in large part to the prevalence of social media and forward facing cameras, a person is bombarded every day with images detailing what is “beautiful” “sexy” or “desirable.” When it comes to a person’s lips, thin is out and plump is in as evidenced by the numerous selfies taken by people around the world. One of the most influential and famous examples of using lip fillers to enhance their appearance is undoubtedly Kylie Jenner. As young as 17, she took advantage of lip fillers to correct a perceived flaw and as a result her lips are one of if not the most famous feature she possesses.
We have discussed why they are popular, but what exactly are lip fillers? Lip fillers are an injection into the lip, which is a minor and temporary procedure. Typically, the results last between six to 18 months depending on a variety of factors. The most common type of lip filler is one that is hyaluronic acid based such as Restylane or Juvederm. The reason for their popularity is they both promote a naturally full look. In addition, this acid naturally exists within the human body making it a more natural filler compared to other types.
Benefits of Lip Fillers
The main benefit of lip fillers is to plump and add volume to the lips. However, there are other benefits that either center on adding volume or add additional benefit that makes this procedure so popular.
Some benefits of lip fillers include:
- Lip volume control: Not everyone wants the same size lips. Everyone has a different preference and goal for their appearance. The doctor is able to control the amount of lip filler used, which grants patients unmatched control in how much lip volume is added.
- Treatment can be gradual: Designed for those who want to add volume but still look completely natural. Lip fillers can help a patient add volume over multiple appointments to gradually achieve the desired results.
- Dissolve the bumps: Lip movement can cause bumps or lumps. With lip fillers containing hyaluronic acid you can rest easy knowing these bumps will dissolved quickly and easily.
- Decently lasting results: The exact length of time may vary between lip filler materials. However, patients can count on at least six months for results making this an easy treatment to continue in a maintenance capacity.
