Today, every woman wants a fuller, more voluptuous pout.Also, many women dream about having fuller and more sensuous lips. There are a variety of both short-term and long-term methods to improve lip fullness, shape and volume. Today fuller lips can be achieved through make up and temporary lip enhancement techniques. Let’s take a look at the options other than surgery to enhance one’s lips.
Make up: Make up can give temporary but effective nonetheless fuller lips to today’s woman. Good lip enhancing make up can make a lot of difference. This technique is applied by using a lip liner on the outer outline of the lips and then filling it with the lip colour. A better result is achieved by coating it with gloss which ultimately gives them a fuller look.
Lip Plumpers: Two types of plumpers are available in the market. They contain ingredients included in lipstick and lipgloss.They result in pout by causing an inflammatory reaction. These plumpers have ingredients like capsaicin, menthol, ginger; caffeine and cinamon.They give a stinging sensation and helps in the inflammation of the lips. The effect of these plumpers goes away in few hours and the lips retain their normal size.
Now, there is a new variety of lip plumpers which lasts for three to four days. These contain an ingredient called palmitoyl oligopeptides which is taken from dried fish. It boosts the collagen in the lips. This added with cinamon, ginger and menthol helps the lips to plump up immediately.
Also, there are after effects of using Plumpers.The lips can get dry or dehydrated. It also results in skin peeling and chapping. Some people with sensitive skin can get skin allergy.
Fillers: First option is to use semi-permanent fillers which are injected into the lips to make them appear fuller. The amount of fullness depends upon the molecular weight and the amount of hyaluronic acid used. Some treatment can last for six months and some eight to ten months.
Local anaesthesia is given to the woman if the lips are highly sensitive.Hyaluronic acid fillers can cause swelling if not done properly.
Second option which is a more permanent one is that which consists of polyacrylamide that stays for as long as two to three years. Another method is to transfer body fat to the lips.
The side effects of this treatment are allergic reactions that might result in blisters and lumps on the lips.
Whichever method you adopt should be taken only after consulting a dermatologist and taking into consideration all the side effects.
