Lip Fillers Geelong

Fillers For The Face

If you want to get fuller lips, there are various lip enhancement procedures in Geelong to consider which will enhance the shape and fullness of lips. Lip augmentation treatments range from the temporary effect of simple lip plumping lipsticks, to lip implant surgery, where the lips are cut and lip implants are inserted. A popular lip enhancing treatment for fuller lips is lip plumping injections, known as dermal fillers. Lip injections such as Restylane can restore lip definition and also remove fine lines around the mouth, and the results will last for around 6 months.

Dermal Fillers For Lips

I read a recent article that reports that drinking directly from water bottles can cause just as many upper lip wrinkles as smoking. I wouldn't doubt it as any activity that makes your lips pucker, which activates the orbicularis oris muscle which encircles the mouth, can cause wrinkles to appear on the upper lip. The development of such wrinkles is a function of both the activity and how often it is done. Drinking water these days for some people is about as frequent as a regular smoker who does one or two packs per day.

As a general principle, wrinkles form on the face perpendicular to the direction of action of the underlying muscle movement. For example, horizontal forehead wrinkles are the result of their vertically-oriented and moving frontalis muscle which extends from the brows upward into the scalp. Since the mouth's main muscle (like the eyes) is a sphincter or encircling muscle which lies parallel (horizontal) to the upper and lower lip (except at the corners), it is no surprise that the lips (particularly the upper) develops vertical wrinkles in some people. The other factor that highly contributes to lip wrinkles is the thickness of your skin and the size of your lips. (which is interrelated) The thicker your skin, the less likely you will ever develop them. You rarely see lip wrinkles in people with thicker skin such as African-Americans and people of Middle Eastern descents for example. (and they have larger lips to begin with....as their skin is thicker)

Upper lip wrinkles in some women are unavoidable and can be very troubling. Injectable lip fillers, laser resurfacing, and Botox can help but there is no permanent cure. The alternative treatments of fractional laser treatments, laserbrasion, and collagen induction therapy are interesting but it is too early to know if they will offer better results.

Perhaps the most popular treatment for augmenting the lips is having dermal filler lip injections. This can be painful, and a local anaesthetic is required, which could be in the form of a cream or an injection which numbs the lips, just like the one you have at the dentist. After treatment, you may experience side effects such as bruising, tenderness and swollen lips. The results will give you fuller, more defined lips for around 6 months, after which time the injections may be repeated.
