Why are lip fillers so popular?

Why are lip fillers so popular?, Full, plump lips are a huge trend right now, so it makes sense that lip fillers are in demand! But what else is causing the rise of lip fillers? We look at the many reasons why more and more people are trying lip fillers for the first time!

Change the shape, not just the size

Although there is a common misconception that lip fillers are used to create fake-looking full lips, filler can alter just specific sections of the lips. For example, many opt for fillers to be injected just their top lip or the lip line to alter the shape and create a natural look.  And of course the filler needs to be injected by a qualified professional who has artistic ability.  Lip filler treatments are completely unique to each individual – there is no one size fits all.

Lip fillers for a younger audience

As we get older, our lips tend to lose elasticity and thin out. As with dermal fillers, lip enhancements plump the lips with hyaluronic acid to give an overall youthful look. However, most people interested in lip fillers are in their 20s. More young people are seeking out lip fillers in Bournemouth, including girls in their late teens.

Lip fillers are not permanent

There has been a rise of non-surgical cosmetic solutions in the past few years. The appeal seems to stem from their temporary nature. After watching ‘plastic surgery gone wrong’ programmes, many dislike the idea of permanent plastic surgery. Instead you can try temporary lip fillers and see the results without any long-lasting effects.

Cosmetic treatments are not taboo

Whilst once considered a taboo subject, more people are talking about cosmetic treatments than before. Following the example of Kylie Jenner, young people openly show off their new full lips in selfies on social media.

Lip fillers are an easy procedure

Lip filler injections are a simple, non-surgical treatment. The procedure usually takes less than half an hour and causes only a mild discomfort for most patients. It is a safe, fast and easy solution for those who want fuller lips.

Can Skin Needling be done at home?

With many home micro needling kits on the market, it is tempting to try them out and see how much you could save.  Can skin needling be done at home?.  Here we discuss what you should know about skin needling at home – and why you may reconsider buying that dermaroller home kit!

Home kit dermaroller needles are different

The needles included in a micro needling home kit are less than 1mm. Professional dermaroller treatments use needles that are between 1mm and 3mm. Longer needles are necessary for treating deeper skin damage, such as acne scars and wrinkles.

Professional skin needling will achieve better results

Perhaps unsurprisingly, dermaroller treatment performed by a professional will be more effective and last longer.  Professionals have an array of different derma rollers and can use the best ones to suit your skin. A medical professional will also have the training and experience to create an effective micro needling treatment plan.

Evaluate which cosmetic treatment is right for you

Micro needling is not safe if you have very sensitive skin, cold sores or inflammatory conditions such as rosacea. A medical professional will assess if skin needling is safe for you as an individual. If you are looking for rosacea treatment, consider thermavein treatment instead.

Professional aesthetic practitioner clinics are safer

By visiting an experienced aesthetic practitioner, you can be assured the procedure will take place in a clean and sterile environment. All equipment will be sterilised or cleaned with a specialist cleaner between treatments. It is essential to disinfect equipment properly, as infection can be a dangerous side effect of micro needling. Professionals have also completed training to perform the procedure in a safe manner. By attempting the skin needling yourself, there is a risk you may cause scarring or bruising to your skin.
