Our natural beauty isn’t always as appreciated as it should be in today’s culture. We come in all different shapes, sizes and expressions. You are unique and beautiful in your own way.
In today’s blog, I’ll talk about my treatment philosophy and how James Christian Cosmetics can help you look your best, naturally.
The idea behind lip plumping is usually to enhance the natural shape of the person’s mouth while offering them added volume. Some women prefer a dramatically “pouty” look, but that’s not the norm.
For aging clients, lips can become thinner with time. Lip plumping can restore their lip volume and help them look younger.
With lip injections using fillers, my aim is for the mouth to compliment the overall look of the face so that lip size is consistent with the other facial features. When something is out of balance, size-wise, it can be off putting and look bizarre.
I always consider the movement of the mouth when doing lip injections. The lips should have enough filler to plump them without drastically affecting the natural movement of the lips. Lips that are too full can appear stiff and unnatural, drawing the wrong kind of attention.
Also of importance is the feel of the lips. During activities such as talking, eating, drinking, and kissing, the lips should still feel supple and be flexible. Providers that inject in the wrong regions of the lips or use too much filler can cause quite an unhappy situation for their clients.
Vertical Lines Around the Mouth and Frown Lines
Vertical lines (also called “lipstick lines”) can make a person look much older than they are.
While frown lines can accomplish the same undesirable effect, they can also make a person appear angry or unfriendly. That is definitely not the impression most people want to give to others!
My philosophy is, again, enhancement of a person’s natural beauty. It is especially helpful for you to bring in a picture of yourself (within ten years) to help me see what you looked like in your perceived prime.
Frown lines (also called “marionette lines”) are especially bothersome to most of my clients because they start noticing in pictures or from comments that they look angry or upset.
Frown lines can easily be filled in with facial fillers so that a more youthful and happier appearance can shine through. Some clients also benefit from BOTOX® Cosmetic in this area to relax the muscles and prevent further wrinkles and creases.
