If you think back to twenty years ago, lip fillers were often looked down on, and women with lip fillers used to be described as having a ‘trout pout’. However, today, this is an incredibly popular treatment and has become the modern woman’s ‘tweakment’ of choice when it comes to cosmetic procedures. In this article, we’re taking a look at the procedure, as well as at the media hype surrounding celebrities searching for the ‘perfect pout’.

What Are Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers are a treatment in which light hyaluronic acid-based fillers are used to hydrate, revitalise and plump up the lip area, enhancing its shape and size. Ideal for people who seek fuller, more sensuous lips, this procedure offers natural results that complement your facial proportions. At The Aesthetic Skin Clinic, two of our most popular fillers are the Juvéderm Volbella and the Restylane, both of which are designed to give you a naturally beautiful look.

You don’t have to wait long to see the results either. Our lip filler treatment will create an instant effect that we’re confident you’ll love, and results will improve as the product settles and integrates with the facial tissue. On average, you can expect your new lips to remain plump and full for, approximately, 6 months but, in some cases, they last even longer.

What Are the Benefits of Lip Fillers?

Full lips are seen as a sign of youth and beauty. Perhaps you were born with thin lips or mismatched lip sizes? Or maybe you want your facial features to be more balanced or have noticed that your lips are thinning as you age. You don’t have to settle for ‘how things are’; on the contrary, whether you’re inspired by a celebrity look or simply just want a little bit more volume, fillers can give you the aesthetic you’re looking for. This treatment will always be tailored to you, which ensures a natural aesthetic.

Lip fillers will also offer a boost in confidence. If you’re struggling with the thinness of your lips and wish they would be fuller, this non-invasive procedure will enhance your natural beauty and femininity. Fillers can be applied little by little, so you have full control over lip volume and will easily get the desired result.

The treatment also improves the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds and promotes collagen growth.

Which Celebrities Have Lip Fillers?

The rise in aesthetic treatments can be traced back to celebrities’ openness in revealing the work they had done, as well as reality TV shows, as we’ve seen in our recent article “How Love Island is Boosting the Cosmetic Industry”. Lip fillers have become important for women recently, and many celebrities are known for having undergone this procedure.

Kylie Jenner, whose lips are well-known for their fullness, admitted to having fillers injected in 2015; her search for the perfect pout started because she’d always been insecure about her lip size.

This treatment may be one of the most popular in Hollywood, but longstanding Geordie Shore member Charlotte Crosby is also a fan of lip fillers; in fact, she undergoes the procedure once a year.

Megan McKenna is another star who hasn’t been secretive about her lip fillers (and isn’t shying away from photos), as is Britney Spears, who’s admitted to having had lip injections before. Celebrities such as Chrissy Teigen, Christina Aguilera, Ariana Grande and Kim Kardashian are thought to have undergone the procedure as well.

While it’s mostly women who choose to get lip fillers, they are becoming increasingly more popular in men as well. For example, Jeremy McConnell, Irish model and reality TV star, got fillers in 2018 and was quickly showing off his new pout on Instagram for all his fans to see. Certain cosmetic treatments for men are on the rise, from lip fillers and hair transplants to Botox and rhinoplasty – and show no sign of stopping.

Choose a Reliable Clinic or Professional

One of the most important things you need to consider before undertaking any kind of cosmetic treatment is choosing a clinic that you can trust. Cheap services often don’t mean quality; it’s better to select a clinic or professionals that have the necessary qualifications and know what they’re doing. This way, you will not only guarantee the success of the procedure but also not end up included in the ‘botched’ aesthetic treatments’ statistics.
