Perfection is subjective, but symmetry often plays a crucial role in our perception of balance and harmony, especially concerning our facial features. If you are concerned about uneven lips and seeking a solution, we’re here to help. An asymmetry in lip shape, drooping, or an uneven cupid’s bow can be caused by aging, genetics, or even sun exposure and is a common issue that can be corrected with minimally invasive procedures.
At Aesthetic Associates Centre, we offer facial dermal fillers, including JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®, to help restore volume to the lips. These treatments can offer a quick, effective, and non-surgical method to achieve a more balanced look. Fortunately, fillers work particularly well on asymmetrical lips because they can add a subtle yet precise boost of volume right where it is needed. If you are unhappy with the asymmetry of your lips, lip fillers can assist in restoring balance.
Do You Have Uneven Lips?
If you tend to notice or feel self-conscious about your uneven lips, you’re not alone. Asymmetrical or thin lips often result from the underdevelopment of one or both lips, leading to an uneven, less plump appearance.
Several factors can make your lips look different or change shape over time. Thinning or asymmetry in lips can occur due to genetics, lip trauma, or metabolic conditions. Aesthetic changes are also a natural part of the aging process. As we age, the reduction in collagen around and within the lip and the weariness of muscles surrounding the mouth contribute to the thinning of lips.
What Are Lip Fillers?
There are various solutions available if you are looking for a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure to achieve a more symmetrical look for your lips. A popular solution in recent years is injectible lip fillers. These can provide natural-looking results, allowing individuals to achieve subtle lip volume and contour enhancements. The increased popularity of lip fillers is part of a larger trend in non-invasive cosmetic procedures.
Dermal fillers are soft, gel-like substances injected under the skin. In the case of lip fillers, the gel is injected directly into and around the lips using an ultra-fine needle that plumps the lips to achieve augmentation. This minimally invasive injection temporarily smooths the appearance of lines around the mouth and adds volume.
Popular fillers, like Juvéderm® and Restylane®, contain hyaluronic acid, which helps the body retain moisture in the skin and restores volume loss in certain areas of the face. Thanks to the hyaluronic acid, these fillers offer greater longevity, fewer side effects, a more natural appearance, and easier administration. Dermal fillers have become increasingly popular because they offer a safe, quick, and effective method for augmenting the lips without undergoing surgery. By strategically increasing lip volume, fillers can create a more symmetrical look.
What to Expect When Getting Lip Filler
The procedure is quick and yields immediate results. Plus, it’s virtually painless, with the majority of individuals experiencing only mild discomfort during the injection.
Some common side effects following your lip filler procedure include:
- Slight discoloration
- Bruising or swelling
These side effects are temporary and typically subside within 24 to 48 hours. Additionally, it is important to stress that a licensed professional administering your treatment is crucial. At Aesthetic Associates Centre, our team provides safe and effective treatments tailored to enhance lip volume and redefine lips.
If you are considering dermal fillers, you’re likely wondering how long results last. Each individual is different, and the duration of your results will depend on specific factors like your age and metabolism. For Juvederm and Restylane, results typically last between six and 18 months.
