Austin is a skilled and specialised aesthetics practitioner. The practitioner of choice for the safe administration of all injectable cosmetic treatments.

Lip fillers are one of the most popular nonsurgical aesthetic treatments in the UK today. Here at Austin Brewer Facial Aesthetics, lip fillers are certainly one of the most requested treatments. Usually, lip fillers are requested to improve the fullness of the lips.

We thought we’d share 3 ways lip fillers can improve your smile with some other very popular concerns. All of which are treated with dermal lip fillers.

It is nearly impossible to open a magazine and not have at least one celebrity, looking back at us with lips that have clearly been enhanced. 

Whether they are done well or not is another issue. Ironically it tends to be the lips that have been done well, which is actually less noticeable than those that are done badly. 

Badly filled lips are so much more obvious and all you notice are the lips, but for all the wrong reasons.

The Right Lip Fillers for You

Lip fillers should enhance the rest of your facial features and balance them. Lip fillers should not overpower or look disproportionate to the rest of your face.

When you visit Austin Brewer you can be assured that you are in the best possible hands for your lip filler treatment.

Creativity and artistry are so very important when you chose your aesthetic practitioner. 

How to choose the right lip fillers for you

Why a Medical Practitioner is Best for Lip Fillers

There are a lot of things your practitioner needs to think about when you have lip filler. Firstly and most importantly there is the medical aspect that needs to be addressed. There is no getting around the fact that you should only be choosing a medical professional for your injectable treatments.

When you choose correctly, your medically trained injector will have a deep understanding of what lies beneath your skin. Having the very important knowledge of where all those little veins and arteries are invaluable. 

The complications vary that can arise from someone who doesn’t know what they are doing. Injectors who are not medically trained or that have bad injection techniques, of which can cause permanent damage. Or incorrectly placed filler that can cause necrosis are not risks worth taking. On a less medically serious note, but still an important fact. Your lip fillers will not look beautiful and natural they will most likely look fake, unbalanced, and lumpy. 

Don’t risk an outcome that could potentially result in your lips looking worse than before you had treatment. This is where the term “trout pout” or the “duck look” originated from. Because injectors do not know where to place the lip filler. And importantly how to balance the treatment with the rest of your facial features.

So What Are the 3 Ways Lip Fillers Can Improve Your Smile?

Asymmetry in the lips following lip fillers

Asymmetry in the Lips

Although we all have asymmetry in our faces – one side is never identical to the other.

When the asymmetry is in your lips and it’s noticeable, it can be frustrating and sometimes upsetting. 

When your lips are very uneven it can even affect your speech and even how you eat. The causes of lip asymmetry vary but can include tissue imbalance or muscle weakness. 

Lip asymmetry can happen in one or both lips.

Choosing the Right Practitioner for Your Lip Fillers

When choosing a facial aesthetics practitioner it is always incredibly important, to only allow a medically trained expert with plenty of experience near your face with a needle.

Dermal fillers in the UK for some inexplicable reason can be administered by beauticians; this as I’m sure you can imagine is not safe. We would simply say to avoid a beautician offering dermal fillers at all costs.

Lip fillers are a medically non-invasive treatment, inferior products, and bad injection techniques can end in disaster. We have had the unfortunate experience too many times, of trying to help someone who went for the cheap deal. 

How to choose the Right Practitioner for Your Lip Fillers

Smokers and Lipstick Lines

Dermal lip fillers are excellent for treating smokers and lipstick lines around the mouth. Medical practitioners can administer the fillers to give you a subtle improvement in the fullness of your lips. They can define the lip line, also known as the vermillion border. Or they can simply fill the vertical lines around the mouth area. The exact way the fillers are used to correct the lines around the mouth is unique to the individual. 

Unfortunately, these lines can prematurely age the rest of your face. It is best not to wait until the lines are very deep. Treatment for the vertical upper lip lines is much more effective when caught early. However, the deeper one can be treated, along with the other lines that may cause concern that surrounds the mouth area. The nose-to-mouth lines are also known as nasolabial lines. The mouth-to-chin lines are known as marionette lines. These dermal filler treatments can also treat what we know as a “sad mouth”. The term unfortunately comes due to gravity along with the ageing process.


The Right Advice

As with all treatments, not everyone is the same. You can discuss your concerns with a leading aesthetic expert and not feel obligated in any way. You will then be armed with the knowledge to make a decision that is right for you, and whether you choose to go ahead with an injectable treatment.

Feeling self-conscious about your mouth and smile can make a big impact on your life on so many levels. Not wanting to communicate fully, smile or be expressive is an awful way to feel. We have put together this “3 ways lip fillers can improve your smile” as a guide to initially provide some options. Practitioners can offer you a free consultation and a full assessment to see if they can help. Whether it’s with lip fillers or Botox for lips or perhaps a combination of the two. 

You can imagine how upset these people are when the person who administered the lip filler disappears or blocks them on social media.

Those cheap deals that you see advertised are cheap for a reason.

Did you know dermal fillers can be bought online from black market sources for about £3?

Does anyone know what is in them – no?

Still interested in that cheap deal?
