Lip Filler After 40: Discovering the Lush Advantages

As you gracefully enter your forties and beyond, it’s common for many women to approach lip fillers with caution, fearing an unnatural appearance akin to those seen on “Desperate Housewives.” However, this view overlooks the nuanced benefits of lip fillers, which extend far beyond exaggerated aesthetics.

Lip fillers, skilfully applied, can be transformative in addressing concerns like volume loss, the appearance of smoker’s lines, dehydration, and even asymmetry, all while steering clear of the notorious ‘trout pout.’ Typically, the effects of dermal fillers in the lip region last between 9 and 12 months, gradually and subtly diminishing over time.

If you’re over 40 and considering lip fillers, here are six key ways they can positively impact your life:

1) Restoration of Hydration: At Essence Medical Cosmetic Clinic in Glasgow, we use a top-tier soft tissue filler for the lips, composed of hyaluronic acid – a substance naturally occurring in the body. Hyaluronic acid is hydrophilic, meaning it draws in moisture, thus enhancing the hydration of the underlying tissues.

2) Subtle Volume Enhancement: Ageing can diminish the natural fullness of our lips. Strategic application of dermal filler can effectively counteract this loss, discreetly restoring youthful plumpness that remains undetectable to others.

3) Reduction of ‘Smoker’s Lines’: Those in their forties may notice the emergence of vertical lines above the top lip, commonly termed ‘smoker’s lines,’ even in non-smokers. These lines, indicative of ageing and volume loss, can be subtly minimised with lip fillers without altering the overall lip size.

4) Correction of Facial Asymmetry: While perfect symmetry is rare, lip fillers can be an excellent tool to balance uneven lip volume, enhancing facial symmetry. Though they don’t correct dental or jaw alignment issues, they can create a harmonious facial appearance when expertly injected.

5) Enhancement of Lip Proportions: Beyond mere fullness, beautiful lips are characterised by balanced proportions. Expert cosmetic doctors use lip fillers not only for symmetry but also to fine-tune the upper-to-lower lip ratio, ensuring a natural and appealing look.

6) Boost in Confidence: Perhaps the most cherished outcome of lip filler treatments for individuals over 40 is the internal boost in confidence. When you feel good about yourself, it shows. Dermal fillers, when injected by a proficient doctor, can enhance your appearance discreetly, leaving others to wonder about the secret behind your refreshed look.

It’s crucial to consult with a qualified and experienced cosmetic doctor who understands the nuances of facial anatomy and can tailor the treatment to your specific needs. Choosing a professional with the right expertise can ensure a safe, satisfying, and aesthetically pleasing outcome. Remember, when it comes to cosmetic procedures, the skill and knowledge of your doctor are just as important as the treatment itself.Contact our receptionist on 0141 894 9098 to schedule a consultation.
