Imagine if you possibly can make a difference to the way you feel by making a small alteration to the way you look?
As we grow older, our skin loses collagen, fat, hyaluronic acid, and elastin that provide facial support and firmness. The bone and the muscles also lose shape. With time, we start seeing the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds, and also firmness loss, showing the notable aging process.
Fuller lips are undoubtedly an indication of "adolescence" but what will happen to our lips when we begin to grow older? Lip area becomes unattractive, thinner and eventually, you just might stop applying lipstick since the upper lip would have nearly disappeared, particularly when smiling. Once this is evident, generally vertical lines start to take over the mouth making a full grown person look aged.
Women are not the only ones who desire fuller, softer lips. Men whose lips are hard and thin may show a rigid attitude in a gathering; but, men with softer lips appear to be more appealing, young and fresh.
Lips are soft tissue, and as an individual begins to get older, volume dissipates which means tissue shrinks.
There are lots of new fillers out there, these fillers do not call for skin tests for allergy reactions, and they are all injected or implanted. The treatment time differs from 3-10 minutes, and some individuals share their views that these kinds of injections can sometimes be painful. These procedures are fairly pricey since they are not everlasting solutions and must be repeated to maintain lip fullness. The commonest side-effect, with regards to any injection, is soreness, bruising and swelling at the injection site or spot that typically last not more than two weeks.
A more permanent lip procedure that is widely used is Goretex. Strips of Goretex are inserted into the lips; the lips do become somewhat larger after the procedure is completed, but some users complain that their lips feel hard, not soft and supple. Some of these grafts cannot be removed if any complication surface because the tissue would have grown all over the implant. Complications like infection, migration, and extrusion of the implants is a primary concern.
Another rather long lasting solution is injections; a patient's body fat is extracted from the abdominal region or buttocks, cleansed and then re-injected into the lip area. Even though this is relatively safe, the fat will reabsorb faster thereby shrinking the lips.
In recent times, over-the-counter (OTC) lipsticks, glosses, as well as other types of skin-based solutions are sometimes recommended for fuller lips with additional lift and firmness. Many skincare firms deceitfully tell their clients that their special product will produce fuller, kissable lips after 2-3 weeks of usage. In reality, these companies make use of both natural and chemically based ingredients in their products to mislead people.
