Now's The Time To Try In-Office Lip Plumping

Published on December 1, 2016


Makeup tricks aside, the most effective means of achieving a plump, pillowy pout is through fillers comprised of hyaluronic acid. Obviously, fillers are the fastest way to turn up your ‘sexiness factor’ without it washing off. Lips are definitely the best place to start if you want to explore the world of medical aesthetics and find out what a good plastic surgeon can do for you. There’s very little commitment.

There are many people who are simply born with thinner lips, and they never notice a loss of volume over time, but just want a quick fix. Meanwhile, other individuals have fuller lips well into their 60s or 70s. Things that can accelerate the fine lines around the lips would be the same culprits that promote aging everywhere else on the face, including smoking and sun exposure.

The latest lip filler advances such as Restylane Silk® and Juvéderm Ultra XC® give doctors better control over volume so you can achieve a more natural-looking result, gradually. Plus, if you don’t like the outcome, it’s not the end of the world because they’re only temporary and you’ll be back to your old self in a few months. Consider lip volumizers a beneficial beauty solution for anyone with lips that are starting to show signs of aging or have become drawn due to sudden weight loss.

Part of a natural look is simply choosing the right filler and injecting it into the correct layer and location in the lip. A lot of women lose the definition along the vermillion border (the border between the red portion of the lip, and the skin above the upper lip). Gently enhancing this border and re-defining it before adding volume can result in total lip rejuvenation. It all comes down to the individual's anatomy.

Not ready to hit the injectables and in-office treatments quite yet? You too can maintain a luscious, pillowy pout with Jan Marini C-Esta Lips, a potent professional treatment that packs a wallop of antioxidants to protect and prevent future damage, while instantly making lips looks more defined and targeting pesky vertical lines on the upper lip.

But wait, there are more holy grail products you'll be bereft without. Before you head out of the door each day, slick on a hint of tint with Colorescience Sunforgettable Lip Shine SPF 35 to prevent freckling and spotting of the lips (the lower one is especially prone to skin cancer). Reapply as needed to keep them feeling super-slick – this perfecting gloss is one of the best things in our beauty bags. And, at least once a week, allow your lips to rejuvenate with an intensive mask like Patchology Lip Renewal FlashPatch 5 Minute Hydrogels.  A hint of sheen on these lip-shaped gels leaves lips looking luminous, full and primed for lipstick. Say hello to your best kisser ever.
