New Delhi: Who doesn’t want a beautiful pair of lips?

While some are blessed with beautifully carved lips complete with a Cupid’s bow, others with thinner lips yearn for a more pronounced appearance.

From using make up techniques that highlight your pout, to getting lip enhancement procedures done, people do many things to make their lips look attractive. Ask any aesthetic physician, and they will tell you how women often express a desire to have lips as beautiful as Angelina Jolie’s or Priyanka Chopra’s.

Incidentally, a research at Manchester University a few years back found that attractive lips were in most cases the first thing men notice in a woman. The scientists used eye-tracking software to prove that in the ten seconds after meeting a woman for the first time, most men looked at her lips.

No wonder, lip enhancement procedures are among the most popular cosmetic procedures today, among celebrities as well as common people.

“With growing awareness about the possibilities of achieving cosmetic enhancements, more and more people are opening up to the idea. If you are one of those people who yearn for lip augmentation but are not comfortable about a surgical procedure, dermal fillers are a highly effective and convenient solution for you,” said Dr. Chiranjiv Chhabra, dermatologist, Skin Alive.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance under the dermis that gives volume and elasticity to the skin. Dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid based gels to give a proper shape and volume to your lips and can look like the best ones you can ever have. It also promotes water retention and hydration improving the dull appearance giving ways to fresh, luscious and well defined lips.

“Hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers are among the most popular aesthetic procedures in the world. In the hands of an aesthetic doctor, the fillers can transform your appearance with just a subtle touch, so that everybody around you will notice the positive turn without seeing any radical change in appearance. All this in a session lasting just 15 minutes,” added Dr Chhabra.

When administered into the lips, the filler gel gives volume and adds more definition. The hydrophilic gel also promotes water retention and provides hydration so that the dull and lackluster appearance gives way to fresh, plump and well defined lips.

“The availability of a series of Hyaluronic acid based injectable fillers ensure that you get desired lip shape in the most effective yet subtle way. Also, if you don’t like the result which is a very rare incident you can get it removed within 5 minutes,” said Dr. Indu Ballani, Ballani Skin Clinic.

One of the advantages of this procedure is that results last for a long time. These lip enhancements can last anywhere between 9-12 months.

“The best aesthetic procedure is the one that is subtle. When people seek lip augmentation, they are looking for an improvement in their appearance yet they do not want people to know they have undergone a cosmetic procedure. These advanced dermal fillers help in achieving longer lasting effects, adds fullness to the lips and soften the appearance of the lines around the lips, with a lot of smoothness and subtlety,” said Dr. Reema Arora, Coocoona Aesthetics.
