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 2023, what people are searching for, and whether natural is the way to go.

What Are Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers, also known as lip injections or dermal fillers, are cosmetic procedures in which a gel-like substance is injected into the lips to enhance their size and shape. The results of lip fillers can be temporary, lasting around 6-12 months, depending on the individual and the specific filler used. To get the best, most long-lasting results, we always recommend speaking to our lip filler specialists at Aesthetic Skin Clinic.

When it comes to lip fillers, we understand that many of our customers want fuller, more luscious lips, be it because they have thinner lips or because they just prefer a fuller look. At ASC, we only use hyaluronic acid-based lip fillers, a substance that forms naturally in the body.

Our fillers 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 often 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 anti-ageing procedures can refresh your complexion and make you feel younger than ever.

Bigger Doesn’t Always Mean Better

When those in the limelight 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. However, we’re now seeing a shift towards something softer, with more celebrities opting for a more natural appearance. 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.

This doesn’t mean, however, that lip fillers are no longer requested. People are still seeking lip fillers, but the difference is that they don’t want such a plumper look as before, but they usually still want to stay away from thin lips. The solution is somewhere in between a natural aesthetic that complements their facial features and doesn’t look out of place or exaggerated.

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 that is skilled in this, such as ourselves. Experts will be able to perform the treatment in the safest way, always keeping your anatomy in mind.

The Future of Lip Fillers

As the cosmetic industry continues to evolve, the future of lip filler trends appears multi-faceted. While natural-looking enhancements are gaining popularity, there will still be some clients wanting volume and defined contours. However, ultimately, the emphasis is shifting towards enhancing the individual’s unique features rather than conforming to a specific trend. In line with this, advancements in filler technology, new products and better techniques are allowing for more precise and tailored results.

In addition, holistic and personalised approaches to aesthetics are becoming increasingly important. Patients are seeking treatments that promote overall facial harmony, taking into consideration factors like facial symmetry and proportion. This shift towards a more comprehensive approach ensures that lip fillers are used as part of an overall facial rejuvenation strategy rather than a standalone procedure.

As industry professionals, we are committed to staying at the forefront of these advancements, offering our patients the latest techniques and highest quality products. Our expert medical and surgical teams stay informed on emerging trends to provide a nuanced approach that suits each individual.
