Lip enhancement is one of the most sought after cosmetic treatments and also one of the most misunderstood. Many people are confused about whether you require dermal fillers or Botulinum Toxins to enhance Lips (the answer is, it can be both, but most often is Dermal Fillers). Many feel that lip enhancement equals “Trout Pout” or an unnatural plastic look, and this can be true of lips that are not assessed on an individual basis because all lips are not created Equal!
Lips can be broken down into several regions and a good injector should always assess each area and talk to the client about what is realistic and what they can achieve based on the lips they have and their facial structure. I cannot have lips like Angelina Jolie, because my natural lips are too narrow…. To get lips the size of Angelina’s, I would look puffed up and unnatural…..I would have a Trout Pout. Instead a lip enhancement for me, is about enhancing the size slightly and creating more shape and dimension to my lips. For others it is enhancing volume or rehydrating lips (removing the lines in the lips) or reducing smokers lines.
So, if you are considering a lip rejuvenation, consider your injector wisely. Make sure you choose someone who understands the lips you have and will explain to you what you can realistically achieve.
