Have you heard? Kendall Jenner might have been enhancing her lips with filler. If you take a quick look at her Instagram, you can see that she over-lines her lips, but it’s not out of the realm of possibility that the enhancement could be more than just lip liner.
In our opinion, it certainly looks like she’s had lip augmentation.
While we can’t pinpoint the exact brand of filler she used, any available fillers can create that signature Jenner pout. Lip filler is customizable, so the doctor can control how much is injected into the lip. The more injected, the more volume you get in the end. It’s possible that Kendall Jenner requested high-volume lips, which led fans to pick up on her change in appearance.
Wanting to add a little oomph to your lips is completely normal. In fact, we see it a lot. That’s because as we get more mature, our bodies lose collagen and hyaluronic acid. These key ingredients support our skin, including the lips and mouth.
We asked Angie Seelal, PA-C, about how you can get the most luscious lips. “Fortunately, there are a lot of options to meet varied desires, both to enhance people’s natural lips, as well as to restore fullness and smoothness that may have been lost over the years,” says Seelal, “Dermal filler injections can replenish hyaluronic acid and stimulate production of collagen, the results is boosting our lips’ ‘plump’ and reducing the surrounding wrinkles.”
HA (Hyaluronic Acid) attracts water which allows the skin to become more hydrated. (That’s why you see it as an ingredient in so many skincare products!) As an injectable, it improves the appearance of the lip by adding shape, structure, and volume. The best part? The amount of substance injected can be controlled, so the dermatologist can give you as much (or as little!) volume as you like. Hyaluronic acid injections are highly efficient and can last up to 6 months.
Looking for a great HA filler? One of the best products we offer is Restylane Kysse. Because Kysse was designed specifically for the lips, a lower amount of product is needed to achieve lip fullness compared to other fillers. In a clinical study, 100% of patients reported aesthetic improvement at 8 weeks after treatment, which means you’ll get on the road to recovery fast. In fact, if you get it now, you’ll be seeing your best results by the summer
