When you think about lips and associate this to celebrities, your mind may zoom in on a mental image of either Angelina Jolie or Kylie Jenner’s attention grabbing smackers. A lot of speculations online claim that one of these two iconic lips is actually natural. We’ll leave you to do your own research on that because we have more pressing issues to address. That is helping you get your own luscious lips with the help of lip fillers in Singapore! Yes, it is possible!

Lip enhancement treatments have been around for quite some time. This aesthetic procedure does more than just give your pout a makeover. Here are reasons why you should follow that urge to beautify your kisser and turn to lip filler:

1: Lip fillers can restore your lips’ youthful look.

Celebrating a birthday each year may bring us wonderful gifts, but signs of aging definitely belong to the “unwanted” list. As we age, our skin loses collagen which results in its looking thinner. Crinkles and wrinkles can also appear around the edges of the lips, making its outline and overall structure seem less outstanding.  While lip fillers can neither stop nor eternally banish aging, it can delay its effects on the lips. Fine lines or wrinkles can be blurred out as lip fillers provide a smoothing effect to the skin surrounding the lip area. Also, applying lip fillers strategically to different points of the upper and lower lip can improve its volume and give the lips more volume. This effect of having fuller lips creates an appearance that is more youthful.

2: Lip fillers can improve facial harmony.

No two lips are the same. Likewise, the upper and lower lips may also not turn out identical. If you are the type that “reads lips,” you may have observed that lips come in different shapes and sizes. However they are made, the way your lips look has an effect on the entire appearance of your face. A popular way to achieve facial balance with “the perfect lips” is by having your lips augmented aesthetically using Leonardo Da Vinci’s theory called “golden ratio.” Having this type of lips requires an upper to lower lip ratio of 1:1.6 in vertical measurement and a 1.6:1 ratio measurement when measuring from the side of the upper lip as it projects a bit over the lower lip. In less complicated terms, the upper lip should be smaller than the lower lip for you to have attractive lips and one that could mimic Monalisa’s smile.

3: Lip fillers can give you lips that boost your confidence.

Giving yourself a huge smile in front of the mirror with your dream lips can definitely squeeze out enough happy hormones to boost your confidence to start and go through your day! Do each day and see how your whole self-confidence and self-esteem improve daily, thus giving a more positive outlook in life!

Now that you are aware of the benefits that lip fillers offer, let’s move on and talk about the nitty gritty details of this aesthetic procedure.

What are lip fillers made of?

The main ingredient that makes lip fillers effective in creating aesthetically pleasing lips is synthetic hyaluronic acid or HA. The human body naturally produces hyaluronic acid, so it is very much familiar HAs in lip fillers even though these are synthetically made. That said, synthetic hyaluronic acid fillers are totally safe to use for the body.

How does Hyaluronic Acid (HA) work as lip fillers?

Hyaluronic Acid fillers are injected into the lips to alter its form, shape, and volume based on the desired outcome. Because it is administered using an injection, the amount that is introduced into the lip is controlled, making little room for mistakes, such as overfilling. There is also no need to worry in case tiny bumps appear after HA injection as this substance can be dissolved using a hyaluronidase enzyme.

How is a lip filler procedure carried out in Singapore?

A procedure using lip fillers in Singapore is one of the many aesthetic treatments called a “lunchtime procedure,” meaning it is done quickly and requires minimal to no downtime. The procedure is done in your doctor’s clinic and can easily be squeezed in between your schedule in a day.

To begin, the area where the treatment is to be administered receives a dose of a topical or local anesthesia sufficient to numb the lips and remove any discomfort during the procedure. Once the medication kicks in and there is no sensation in the treatment area, your doctor will mark the points in the lips where the lip fillers will be injected. After which, your doctor will proceed to inject the hyaluronic acid fillers into the lip using needles that are very fine. The lip fillers are distributed accordingly until the desired results are achieved.

Your doctor will give you aftercare instructions once the procedure is done, like applying ice to the lips gently to minimize swelling and lessen any discomfort. It is important that no pressure is placed on the lips and any cosmetic products, such as lipstick, lip balms, or gloss should be avoided until the lips have completely healed.

Expect that your lips will be swollen after the procedure. Swelling usually takes anywhere from 2 to 7 days.

Are there risks or complications involved in a lip filler procedure?

There are minor risks that can be expected following a lip filler procedure. These are:

  • Adverse reaction to anesthesia
  • Bleeding in the treatment area
  • Bruising
  • Development of cold sores
  • Discoloration
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness

Major complications rarely happen after a lip filler procedure. The most common complications that need immediate medical attention are:

  • Bruising and swelling that does not heal over an extended period of time
  • Fever
  • Filler migration – happens when the filler leaks into the other parts of the face surrounding the lips
  • Infection
  • Lumps
