How To Get Natural Looking Lip Filler

Updated: May 9

Do Lip Fillers Ruin Your Natural Lips? Not if they’re done well!

The world of aesthetic treatments has seen a significant surge in popularity over the past few years, with lip fillers being one of the most sought-after procedures. However, many of my clients are seeking a more natural look rather than an overly plumped pout. 

Today I will delve into how you can achieve a natural result with lip filler, focusing on techniques such as height over projection, using premium filler brands, and slowly adding volume to keep the natural shape of your lips.

Height Over Projection for Natural Looking Lip Filler

One of the key techniques to achieving a natural-looking result with lip fillers is focusing on height over projection. This technique involves enhancing the vertical height of the lips rather than projecting them outwards. The goal here is to create a subtle lift that enhances your natural lip shape and structure without giving that “duck” or unnatural look.

This is why having an in-depth understanding of facial anatomy and aesthetics is key for your practitioner - there is no one size fits all! A lot of precision is required when injecting lip filler to enhance your lips' height without causing them to protrude unnaturally.

Choosing Premium Filler Brands

The type of filler used also plays a crucial role in achieving a natural result. Opting for a premium filler brand can make all the difference when it comes to getting that subtle enhancement you desire.

Premium brands often have hyaluronic acid-based fillers that are designed to mimic the body's naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. These fillers are soft and flexible, allowing them to blend seamlessly with your natural tissues for an incredibly realistic result. They also tend to last longer than cheaper alternatives, meaning you can enjoy your new look for longer before needing top-ups.

Slowly Add Volume To Keep Your Lips Natural Shape

When it comes to achieving natural results with lip fillers, slow and steady wins the race. Instead of going for dramatic volume increase in a single session, it's better to slowly add volume over several appointments. This approach allows us to gradually build up the volume of your lips, maintaining their natural shape and ensuring that they don't look overfilled or out of proportion with the rest of your facial features.

This is especially important for our clients with thinner lips as lip tissue needs time to adjust and stretch to maintain those natural results.

This method also gives you more control over the final result! You can decide after each session whether you're happy with the current size or if you'd like to add a little more volume. This way, you can achieve the perfect balance between enhancement and naturalness.

Lower Face Support for Balanced Aesthetics

Lastly, it's important to consider how your lips fit into the overall aesthetics of your face. I am always evaluating my client’s faces as a whole to achieve natural looking enhancements. If you're filling your lips, you may also need to consider treatments that provide lower face support to maintain balanced proportions.

Treatments such as dermal fillers in the chin or jawline can help provide this balance and ensure that your enhanced lips don't dominate your face. By considering your face as a whole rather than focusing solely on one feature, you can achieve a more harmonious and natural-looking result.

No Duck Lips Here!

Remember that every individual is unique, and what works best for one person may not necessarily work for another. This is why those initial consultation sessions are crucial, so we can evaluate what approach works best for you and create a personalised treatment plan tailored specifically to your needs and desired outcomes.
