Cosmetic trends come and go, and lip fillers are no exception.

For a while, big lips were all the rage, with many celebs like Kylie Jenner popularising the look on social media. However, just like other trends, things shift over time. While most people still agree that the infamous ‘trout pout’ is something to avoid, they’re now moving towards a more natural look instead of opting for big lips.

So, in this article, we’re looking at lip fillers in 2021 and what people are searching for – and whether smaller is the way to go.

What Are Lip Fillers?

The Aesthetic Skin Clinic has many years of experience in the cosmetic and aesthetic industry and we’ve been helping patients achieve their desired results for a long time.

When it comes to lip fillers, we understand that many of our customers want fuller, more sensuous lips, be it because they have thinner lips they consider unattractive or because they just want a fuller look. We only use hyaluronic acid-based lip fillers, a substance that forms naturally in the body. Two of our most popular fillers are Juvéderm Volbella and Restylane, both of which are ideal for those seeking naturally beautiful results.

Our fillers also hydrate and revitalise the lip area instead of simply volumising it. This is because your health matters just as much as the final look, so we strive to offer both to all our patients! We can introduce smaller amounts of filler to enhance the shape and size of the lips and can also create a more augmented cupid’s bow if you so wish.

Lip fillers can also help you achieve a more youthful appearance, as lips tend to lose volume as we age. Combining this treatment with our many other procedures, such as dermal fillers and HydraFacial, for example, can refresh your complexion and make you feel younger than ever.

Bigger Doesn’t Always Mean Better

When public figures and celebrities began to sport big lips on social channels, the craze that followed saw more and more people asking for exaggerated pouts or simply larger looks than before. We’re now seeing a shift towards something softer.

In general, people are now more interested in natural-looking results, be it when it comes to lip fillers or any other non-surgical treatments.

So, women are still seeking lip fillers, but the difference is that they don’t want such a plumper look as before; an example is Brielle Biermann, who’s over the big lips look. After all, women – and an increasing number of men as well – still want to stay away from thin lips, so the solution can be something in-between.

We believe the overfilled lips trend will phase out this year in favour of a more subtle look, so it’s important that you choose a clinic or a professional that is skilled in this. Experts will be able to perform the treatment in the safest way (and always keeping your anatomy in mind), so do your research to get better and longer-lasting results.

Lip Fillers and the Pandemic

It’s also worth noting that, due to the pandemic and the widespread use of masks and face coverings, beauty trends focused more on the eyes, not the lips, throughout 2020. This could have helped people move towards a smaller lip aesthetic too.

Even so, for many others, the pandemic actually increased the popularity of lip fillers.

Chloe Laws, Social Media Editor at Glamour Magazine, said that “I didn’t feel myself after lockdown, my hair was all over the shop, I’d not worn proper shoes in months, and my everyday grooming had gone out the window – getting my lips topped up was the cherry on top to getting back to some sort of normality.

“Plus, lockdown gave my lips the chance to completely dissolve, and I could truly reflect on whether I wanted them again or not – it felt like a more considered decision this top up time, because I wasn’t just in the cycle of keeping up a facade.”

Lip fillers show no signs of stopping, so we’re expecting to see a lot more of it in 2021.
