Lips are an important part of beauty, and one of the most popular areas for cosmetic injections. Medical practitioners have determined that the golden ratio for lips is a 1 to 1.6 ratio of top to bottom lip. However, not everyone is born with these natural perfect measurements. A lip enhancement using dermal filler can help to create natural looking volume, can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines on and around the lips and can assist in defining the vermillion border. They can also help to stimulate natural collagen production, leading to plumper, more youthful lips.
Every treatment is different and will create varying results from person to person. Because of this, it is important to have a one on one consultation with your doctor to discuss your desired outcomes and what to expect from your treatment. Contact your M1 medical practitioner today to discuss options for lip enhancement, and how a lip treatment can help you realise your beauty potential.
