An Injector’s Guide to Lip Fillers

For a non-surgical treatment practitioner, lip filler is generally one of the top 3 procedures requested. 

However, patients are increasingly concerned to strike the right balance between attractive, full and sensual lips and not going too far with over-pumped trout pouts which seem to plague certain celebrities.

While some practitioners perceive lip enhancement to be a quick and easy procedure – boosting the lip volume for bigger lips – there are other practitioners who believe that producing a good result for lip fillers is an art form, but one which is informed by detailed physiological understanding.

The mouth and lip area is incredibly complex as this diagram shows. Just a little bit of filler in the right place can make an incredible difference, but it is vital to judge the quantity and positioning of the injectable filler in order to get the right aesthetic result. Fillers are not just about adding volume – the right amount of filler in the right spot can provide a structural effect, lifting and shaping the lip and mouth area.

Equally, a good result is never purely about the volume, but more about the shape of the lips, which should be balanced and proportional, working in harmony with the surrounding facial structures for a pleasing effect.
