Have you ever noticed the number of lip products in cosmetic stores and pharmacies? You’ll find lip balms, lip gloss, lipstick, lip moisturizers and many other lip-focused items. In fact, there are usually more products for the lips than any other part of the face. Although some people may already know this, the prevalence of lip products tells us something quite significant: attractive lips are one of the most desirable facial features. And women aren’t the only ones looking to enhance the lips. It turns out, a large majority of men are also interested in achieving their ideal lips. Below, we’ll explore what this means and what you can do to satisfy your personal cosmetic goals.
The Perfect Pout Explained
When it comes to achieving the ideal lip appearance, there are two main qualities that people typically want to achieve: volume and texture. Skin tone may also be an important feature, but since this is often achieved with lipstick and other cosmetic products, the focus is more often placed on volume and texture.
Volume is a quality that can vary significantly in the lips. There is no “perfect size” for the lips, as the ideal appearance will depend on a person’s unique facial features and particular cosmetic goals. However, many people find that a subtle boost in lip volume with injectable fillers produces a more attractive appearance in the lips that better complements other facial features.
The texture of the lips can be difficult to maintain in cold, dry weather. Similarly, excessive sun exposure, which can be difficult to avoid in Florida, can put the lips at risk for cracking, dryness or premature aging. Considering the importance of the lips in the overall appearance of the face, protecting them from damage and keeping them moisturized can make a significant difference in their appearance.
Best Lip Enhancement Treatments
Using products such as lip balm on a regular basis can help protect the lips and is a great way to keep the skin healthy year-round. However, there are also many treatments available that can be used to further enhance the appearance of the lips in ways that may not be possible with at-home techniques and cosmetic products.
For lip volume enhancement, the best option is lip injections. This technique, performed by Dr. Koger himself, involves the injection of smooth, hyaluronic acid gel formulas into the lips.
