We blog a lot about lip filler treatments. There's so much...
There was a time, about 25 years ago, when lip liner was a staple of every woman's make-up bag. To their credit, the pencils do give lipstick a base to grab onto, making lip colour last longer.
But that's where the benefits end - especially if you're over the age of 25 or so.
Yes, lip liner has been having a bit of a renaissance recently, thanks to a certain Ms Kylie Jenner. Demand for Kylie's Lip Kits have even broken the ability of Google Analytics to measure web traffic, as well as shut down multiple post offices. They've also made her the first Kardashian Klan billionaire (at least on paper).
Just one small issue: Kylie Jenner herself admits her full lips were achieved with lip fillers, not lip liner.
Be honest. How many of us want exaggerated, clearly fake, drawn-on lips? How many of us have lifestyles that demand 'Instagram make-up'? And how many of us have perfectly plump, uncreased lips that look and feel great with a layer of matte lip liner? Who among us has not experienced the satisfaction of scrubbing away all that dry gunk with a damp flannel at the end of the night?
That is exactly why lip fillers, administered by world-class aesthetic physicians, are the solution of choice for voluminous, plump lips.
Lip fillers are a means to an end - specifically, lip augmentation. This is a non-surgical treatment to perfect the shape and volume of the lips. Lip augmentation also addresses age-related loss of definition and volume in lips. (If your lipstick is bleeding onto the skin around the edges of your lips, you are suffering from a loss of definition and volume.)
At SISU clinics in Dublin, Cork and Killarney, our doctors augment the lips with injections of pure hyaluronic acid. This substance occurs naturally in our bodies and can hold 1000 times its weight in water - making it ideal for plumping and defining your lips. Because hyaluronic acid is a material produced by our own bodies, lip injections do not cause allergic reactions.
Even better, results are immediate. While you may experience slight swelling in the hours after your injections, this is natural and will subside within 12 hours. You can expect the results of SISU's lip fillers to last from six months to one year.
Sorry, Kylie: We know the real secret to your plump pout. Ladies, save your money and ditch the lip liner. Thanks to the doctors at SISU, you won't need those expensive lip kits ever again.
