Full, plump lips are one of the hallmarks of a youthful appearance. As we age, our lips — like the rest of our faces — lose fat and become thinner and less defined. Today, more than ever, women want full lips not only to appear younger, but also because thanks to celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Scarlett Johannson, and Angelina Jolie, who’ve made fuller lips a beauty goal.
That’s not to suggest that women haven’t seemingly always recognized the sex appeal of full, shapely lips. Going all the way back to the 1920s, flappers used lipstick to fill in the center portion of their lips, accentuating the “cupid’s bow” for a poutier appearance, mimicking the look made popular by celebrities of the day like Clara Bow.
Still, today, more than ever, full lips are a sign of beauty and women want them, and will try almost anything to get them!
The cosmetics industry has jumped on the plump lip bandwagon with all sorts of offerings from drugstore products to high-end pricey fixes, all of which promise to make lips look fuller and more youthful. Some use ingredients that sting and make lips swell to achieve the promised results. But no matter how successful you are in replicating a full-lipped pout with makeup, there’s always going to be one major drawback — the results are very temporary! As soon as you remove your makeup, your fuller lips go down the drain, quite literally!
The Magic of Fillers
Just a few short years ago, the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, Kylie Jenner, aroused controversy when she had filler injected into her lips, which were actually quite thin by “family standards”. (The controversy stemmed from the fact that she was just a teenager when she had her lips filled.) In the end, though, her new lips are quite lovely and have become not only her signature trademark but have also inspired her to launch a lip-kit line that’s adding to her already impressive fortune!
Back in the 1980s, actress Lisa Rinna was one of the first to use silicone to bring her lips considerably more — some argued “too much” — fullness. Unfortunately, she didn’t have access to today’s more natural alternatives to silicone …
A More Permanent and Safer Solution for Enhancing Thin or Thinning Lips
Today, fillers such as Restylane® and Perlane® offer results that are not only natural-looking when injections are administered by a trained, licensed professional, but also last for months — up to a year full year, in fact — before supplemental treatment is needed.
Both Restylane® and Perlane® are made from non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid, which simply means that they contain no animal products. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the skin and other tissue, which means that there’s no need for skin testing before the procedure. They work by naturally drawing in moisture which causes the underlying tissues to swell, giving you fuller, smoother lips and a more youthful appearance in the bargain.
