Why You Should Avoid Lip Filler Trends

Why You Should Avoid Lip Filler Trends

Getting lip fillers is a great way to look and feel better, but consider the type of filler you want and why you want it. In the age of social media, there is a new trend of beauty influencers and celebrities that are ready and willing to discuss the plastic surgery and fillers they have had. This has been great for removing the stigma around facial rejuvenation and altering your body to feel like your most confident, comfortable self, but it has also increased the number of women and men seeking overfilled or trend inspired lips. Here’s why you should avoid following the trends and instead choose to achieve a natural lip enhancement that is completely suited to you.

Why Lip Filler Trends Change And What They Leave You With

Changing Trends.

Trends are for more than just clothing. An ideal lip shape has defined every era and makeup has long been used to accentuate existing features or to imitate the desired look of the times. For example, look at the 1920’s trend of putting lipstick on the central portion of the lip to create a  heart shaped mouth that accentuated the Cupid's Bow. A few years later, in the 1930’s, the rosebud lip shape became the trend, calling for overdrawn lips that flattened the previously accentuated Cupid’s Bow. In the 1940’s, the natural lip shape took over as women joined the workforce and painted their lips the iconic bright cherry red. These lip shape trends continue to fluctuate, with women altering their own lip shape even before the use of lip enhancements became popular.

The trend now is a very full lip, often overlined with lip liner and filled in with a slightly lighter shade and then overlaid with a gloss. Between the overlining, the ombre effect, and the shine, this trend is designed to create a full, plump pout. Unlike the previous lip shape trends in history, this pout is done through more than just the power of makeup, as people are heading to lip enhancement clinics with photos of celebrities in hand and asking for her lips. This can become problematic for a few reasons:

Everyone’s Features Are Different.

There is no one type of lip that looks universally great on everyone, and asking for another person’s lip look may not give the results you desire. To get the best results with your fillers, consult with the medical professional administering your JUVEDERM®. Discuss the look you want and have them work with your natural features, because someone else’s lips on your face won’t look natural, but your own lips with an enhancement will.

You Don’t Want To Overfill.

With the current full lip trend, there is a risk of overfilling and damaging the lips. When lips are plumped too much, the tissue will expand and the lips will require more filler each time you go, as the lips become physically stretched. Make sure you discuss with your JUVEDERM® specialist so that you don’t get overfilled lips that may stretch the lip tissue.
