Lip augmentation trends for 2018

We take a look at the latest trends in lip augmentation that are set to make it big in 2018.

  • Meghan Markle’s Mouth

Since her engagement to Prince Harry was announced, attention has been firmly focused on Ms Markle, from the clothes she wears to her looks and, in particular, her lips. Sales of nude lipstick are said to have soared by 65 per cent in the week after her first Royal appearance and women now want to emulate her mouth shape.

Meghan’s mouth follows the proportions of the ‘ideal lip’ – her lower lip is slightly larger than the top with a gentle slope to the corners of the upper lip and a well-defined Cupid’s bow. However, it is also important to note that Meghan’s lips are perfectly in proportion to her face which should always be the guiding principle for anyone contemplating a lip augmentation procedure.

  • The Anti wrinkle injections Lip Job

We all know that Anti wrinkle injections  is fantastic for eradicating lines and dermal fillers are perfect for plumping your pout, but a popular new treatment in New York is the anti wrinkle injections  lip job. Instead of using dermal filler to volumise the lip area, aesthetic doctors are injecting tiny amounts of Anti wrinkle injections into the muscles around the mouth which ‘rolls’ the lip outwards, creating the illusion of a bigger lip.

This is one lip augmentation trend we would approach with caution. Too much anti wrinkle injections and it could affect your ability to pout or even suck through a straw. Also, the muscles in the mouth area are in constant use – eating, drinking, talking and smiling – and any results would quickly disappear.

  • Pout Rejuvenation

The Kylie Jenner effect saw a huge rise in younger girls wanting over-sized lips but many of our patients actually want a pout rejuvenation. Over time, our lips show the signs of ageing just as much as the eyes or jawline, as they become dehydrated, deflated or start to lose definition around the border.

Our Pout Rejuvenation treatment uses temporary dermal fillers to hydrate the lips, lift the corners of the mouth, reduce any fine lines surrounding the lips and restore definition to the lip border and Cupid’s bow. The effect is beautifully natural and anti-ageing.
