What are Lip Fillers? We all know how nice lips can/should look. Sometimes perfection is hard.
Dermal fillers of some form have been used for over a hundred years. Originally autologous fat was removed from elsewhere in the patient and inserted in to the face. This process has been refined over the years and is still available today. Despite this it is not the most reliable of treatments and results can be disappointing and much more temporary than expected.
Recently collagen extracted from bovine or poultry sources has been used very successfully in refilling facial lines. One disadvantage of collagen is that its animal origin makes allergic reactions to the product more common and so a test patch of treatment has been required to ensure a safe treatment. People started using collagen for lip enhancements over twenty years ago. We now prefer the safer and less reactive hyaluronic acid products.
Softer Natural Look
Lip fillers are used to enhance the natural shape and improve the appearance of the face. Ideal lips are hard to achieve as you have to start with what the patient has got. More mature ladies can have extremely thin lips which is a natural part of the ageing process. it is important therefore to be realistic as to possible outcome. Also I must say that some people think that if something is good then twice as much must be twice as good. This is never the case with lips.
So we need to be careful and choose your Lip filler specialist wisely. I would recommend a doctor from the British College of Aesthetic Medicine as a minimum. With experience you can get a lot of subtle but very good improvements.
It is all a matter of personal taste and requires careful discussion with your doctor. Perfection is very nearly possible….
