How do we define beauty? This is the age old question that is constantly evolving and changing.
Beauty standards are culturally influenced; however a beautiful face is beautiful regardless of cultural variances. Beutification, maintenance and enhancement of the facial features has long been of interest to both men and women throughout history. Beauty fads can even be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Egyptians.
Back in 270 BC the Greeks focused on symmetry and the importance of facial harmony. Fast forward thousands of years to 1960s England and it is a different story. During this period the UK preferred big lips with bigger eyes, made famous by none other than supermodel Twiggy.
Today women base their ideals on images which have been reinforced by the media, with culprits such as reality stars promoting the latest look.
However it seems that society is now moving away from going under the knife, with a recent study by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) publishing statistics showing a 40% drop in cosmetic surgery procedures.
This number may not come as such a shock to some as the last few years have seen a surge in female empowerment both online and off. This can only be a positive when it comes to the cosmetic industry and individuals distancing themselves from drastic or dangerous treatments.
Gone are the days of women lusting over oversized assets, with more natural results now sought after. Treatments that complement and enhance their features, instead of change them entirely, are becoming a regular occurrence on clinic procedure lists.
Through this rise, non-surgical procedures have increased steadily, with facial injection becoming one of the most popular treatments. Lips fillers are a prime examples of this.
Many women (and men) use dermal lip fillers to revive dehydrated areas surrounding the mouth and add a touch of natural volume to the lips.
At Dermal Clinic, we believe have a ‘look better, feel better’ motto. Clients should be able to feel comfortable in their skin while having something to smile about.
By undergoing a dermal filler treatment by a medically-qualified member of staff, clients are able to enjoy results for up to nine months.
Forget the dates and the trends, natural looking lips are timeless.
