Achieving the Perfect Pout
Over the last few years, we’ve seen a surge in patients wanting to achieve the perfect lip pout. Whether influenced by the age of social media or simply hoping to restore volume lost over time, people come to me for my injection expertise and years of experience. Some are worried about looking “unnatural” or like a celebrity who’s gone overboard with filler, but at Seiler Skin, we work with each patient to provide a noticeable, natural lip pout. Each patient is different, but getting the perfect pout boils down to four main things.
Find the Right Injector — Just because an injector provides lip treatments doesn’t make them the best in the market, and this can lead to the unnatural, overfilled look we see all too often. I have more than 15 years of injection expertise and have treated thousands of patients throughout my career. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to treating patients, which is why I take the time to listen to your concerns and develop a treatment plan tailored to them. Plus, not only have I administered thousands of treatments over the years, I’ve also taught injectors around the world in filler, Botox and so much more.
Keep it Natural — One of the most common mistakes that happens with lip treatments is overfilling the lips and distorting the balance between the upper and lower lip. You want your lips to complement one another, not compete. I have an extensive understanding of facial anatomy and aesthetic proportions of the face so that each patient receives the correct amount of injectables to give a plumper yet natural look to deliver that perfect pout.
Pick the Right Filler — Not all fillers are the same, which is why you need someone with an understanding of which is right for the lips – and that’s me! We use a variety of fillers for the lips, but one of my go-to options lately has been the RHA Collection of filler. Its formula has less cross-linking, allowing the filler to conform to movement in the tissues of the face, which is ideal for the lips. This movement also reduces the chance of you actively “feeling” the filler.
Incorporate Botox — Most injectors only stick with filler when treating the lips, but did you know incorporating Botox can improve the overall appearance and better achieve a pout? I sometimes will inject Botox before filler to see how it affects the muscle, which often results in requiring less filler. Botox can also help address and prevent fine lines on the upper and lower mouth that are caused by repeated muscle movement.
With the right injector and treatment plan, anyone can achieve the perfect pout they’ve been looking for — and that’s exactly what we’re here for! If you want to learn more about filler and Botox for the lips, schedule your own personal consultation or call us at 205-870-0204.
