How to Get The Wrinkle-Free and Full Lips You Dream Of
The mouth is one of the key areas of the face that contributes to a person’s overall attractiveness. The appearance of your mouth is mostly down to genetics although the effects of age will certainly take its toll too.
Most people desire to get rid of wrinkles and have lips that have a good amount of volume. Thankfully there are ways to accomplish both these things safely and effectively.
Getting rid of lines and wrinkles around the mouth
Over the years, common facial expressions, such as smiling and frowning cause lines to appear around the corners of the mouth. This are often known as ‘smile lines’ or ‘laugh lines’. Although this is perfectly natural, for a lot of people the appearance of these lines are far from welcome. Luckily there are very effective treatments available to help get rid of lines around the mouth.
Injectable treatments, or more specifically dermal fillers, are an excellent way to treat lines and wrinkles around the mouth. By adding more volume to the skin, dermal fillers help to smooth out the appearance of any lines or wrinkles and therefore provide a more youthful look.
Dermal filler injections are usually performed over a number of treatments, spread apart by a few weeks. This allows for the most natural looking and long-lasting results. Dermal fillers are a very safe form of treatment and rarely cause any serious complications. That being said – redness, swelling and tenderness can occur immediately after treatment but these side effects are usually mild and will subside within a week.
Adding volume to the lips
One of the unfortunate effects of aging is that the lips can very easily lose their natural volume and become noticeably thinner. Both the upper and lower lip are affected but the loss of volume is usually most noticeable on the upper lip. The best way to combat this and to restore volume is, again, through the use of dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers can not only be used to get rid of lines and wrinkles around the mouth; but also to add volume and fullness to the lips. Dermal fillers can be injected into the lips to provide a much fuller, yet still natural looking fullness to the lips. The effects last for around 1 year, after which time further treatment can be done.
