Lips say so much about the face. Beautiful lips are always a focal feature. But more than this, lips are part of how we communicate and express ourselves. Lips are for kissing, smiling, pouting, eating and laughing. Beautiful lips will always lift the facial appearance and look more inviting.Lip rejuvenation treatments have been the subject of much criticism over the years. Unfortunately, only the worst treatments are displayed on the pages of the glossy magazines with a bitchy comment underneath. The best treatments are not detectable as anything but part of the beautiful natural appearance.As we age, lips become thinner and lose volume. Vertical lines appear on and around the lips, lipstick starts to “bleed”, the lip corners turn down to give the mouth a sad expression, and there is flattening of the Cupid’s bow on the top lip. These are all problems that are improved with lip rejuvenation treatments.
There is definitely an art in knowing what will look balanced on the face and what will look all wrong. Most people either want to improve some of the issues that occur with ageing or give a little enhancement where nature was lacking. No one wants to look fake!
Lip rejuvenation treatments are simple and easy to perform. Treatments take around 30 minutes. A numbing gel is applied prior to the treatment to ensure comfort, and the products all contain local anaesthetic. New dermal fillers are available that last up to 15 months in the lips and look and feel completely natural. There is also a product that will not give volume to the lips, but result in a softer, more hydrated lip, with better definition and without the vertical lines.If you are interested in a little lip beautification, contact us at Shine to book a complimentary consultation and to discuss your options.
