All the lastest news, articles and helpful tips from Brixworth Laser and Skincare
Lip fillers are no new phenomenon – it dates all the way back to the 1970s, when collagen of a ‘bovine origin’ was injected into the lips of those who wanted a fuller pout.
Fast-forward almost fifty years and the scene couldn’t be more different. Not only has technology come on in leaps and bounds, lip filler is now one of the most popular non-surgical enhancements available, with millions of women (and men) all over the world taking the plunge every year.
The amazing developments in technology we’ve seen over the last fifty years now mean that lip fillers are now much safer, and more natural-looking than ever. The introduction of hyaluronic acid in the form of Restylane (which is the product we use here at Brixworth Laser & Skincare) changed the game entirely, with fillers lasting longer than before.
Over the years, we’ve seen some amazing lip transformations, and some that are unforgettable for all the wrong reasons. We’ve seen beautiful, subtle lip augmentation that enhances the whole face, and we’ve seen some overnight transformations that make the front pages instantly. We’ve all watched as lip fillers went from Hollywood fad to one of the most popular forms of non-surgical treatment ever.
The statistics show an incredible rise in the number of people seeking lip fillers. In the US, the most recent figures show that a lip procedure is performed every 20 minutes, with lip augmentation up 43% since 2000. In the UK, one clinic reported a staggering 70% rise in lip filler enquiries after one celebrity admitted that her plump pout was the result of fillers.
No prizes for guessing who that particular celebrity is. Kylie Jenner is one of the most talked-about women in the celebrity world, and the admission that her changing face was the result of augmentation was not exactly a shock. But with such a candid admission, thousands of women were given the information they needed to replicate her iconic look.
Of course, not everyone wants to replicate the plumped-up look sported by the younger sister of the Kardashians. Lip fillers are not all about larger-than-life pouts. In fact, sometimes the best lip fillers are the ones that don’t look like fillers at all! Jennifer Garner has reportedly undergone lip fillers to balance out her lovely smile and enhance her top lip, for a wonderfully natural look. Nicole Kidman’s pout has fluctuated over the years but always looked authentic, and Megan Fox’s enhanced lips scream glamour without appearing fake.
Now, lip fillers aren’t the preserve of the endlessly rich and famous. Lip augmentations and dermal fillers are affordable, and you don’t need to fly to Los Angeles to see an expert when there are gold-standard practitioners on your doorstep.
