Three Surefire Ways to a Plump and Kissable Pout
- Posted on: Jan 14 2015
The lips have always played a key role in how beauty and youth are perceived. The wide variety of lipsticks and lip-enhancement products are proof that women desire a plump pout. Not all of us are born with lips like Angelina Jolie, but there are tried-and-tested ways for helping you get those kissable lips!
The decline of naturally occurring substances (primarily hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen) caused by aging is the main factor behind thinning lips. Sun exposure and smoking causes further damage by reducing skin elasticity around the mouth, resulting in creases around the mouth (known as marionette lines) and vertical lines in the upper lip (also known as rhytids).
Many of our patients have expressed satisfaction in the following cosmetic options when it comes to restoring definition, fullness, and volume to the lips:
- Hyaluronic acid fillers are the second-most frequently performed non-surgical procedure in 2013. Aside from plumping out nasolabial folds and lifting jowls, these fillers are also effective in adding more life and volume to the lips. Juvederm and Restylane have shown great promise, and the results are immediate and last from three to six months.
- Next in line is Botox, which is effective in softening marionette lines and rhytids.
- Fat transfer to the lips may also be done by harvesting excess fat in one area of the body such as the abdomen or thighs. The harvested fat is purified using a special device before it is re-injected.
