Whether you agree with any form of enhancement or not, the fact is that someone else does. As such, there are thousands of cosmetic procedures available for pretty much every body part on the human body to enhance it, shape it, cut it or bulk it. If you want to improve something, someone can do it for you.

Lips are arguably the most popular area on the body for cosmetic enhancement, and it’s totally up to you how you choose to undergo this change. You’ve got the choice of going with a full blown cosmetic procedure, performed by professionals to create a long lasting and arguably more noticeable difference, or you can purchase over the counter products to do it for you with less risk. Let’s take a look at the difference between the two most popular types of lip enhancements and see which one works best for you.

Lip Plumpers

A lip plumper’s job is essentially to promote increased blood flow to the lips, resulting in a fuller and “plumper” appearance. This can be achieved in many, many ways, and you’d probably be surprised to know that the primary ingredients for many plumping agents is actually basic house hold goods like cinnamon and red pepper in a highly concentrated form. Of course, other products revolve around substances that actually serve to intentionally irritate the skin around the lips, leading to increased blood flow to the area, and as such you may experience a mild burn when applying them.

All in all though, it should be noted that none of these options are particularly dangerous, and any irritation is only mild. Results are immediate but short term, so you will have to keep re applying your chosen plumper to keep reaping the rewards.

Lip Fillers

Lip fillers are a surgical procedure that involves injecting the lips with a substance to immediately “puff” them up and fill them out. Substances injected vary from naturally occurring acids within the body, to fat and collagen. These days the most popular choice tends to be acid, as the risk of side effects is much lower than with other substances used.

Getting the worst bit out of the way first, with lip filling being a surgical procedure, there is a risk of side effects, and in some cases, they will be absolutely unavoidable. In the short term you’ll likely have to deal with mild to moderate bruising, and at the very least excess swelling. There is a risk of infection and imbalance within the area also, meaning further procedures may have to take place to fix them.

Now the best parts, after very short term swelling and bruising (unless you’re lucky enough to get away with none) you’ll find that your lips look full, luscious and plump. Not only that, the effects are going to last a long time as opposed to being a simple quick fix, and they will be more noticeable than the effects yielded by purchasing lip plumpers.

Both procedures are effective in their own way, and both cater for different audiences. You should never go through with any surgical cosmetic procedure unless you have very strong reasons for doing so. It needs to mean something significant to you, and if it doesn’t, then you do at least have off the shelf options available to make your day-to-day life, or even special occasions that little bit more special.

Neither choice is a bad one you just need to make sure you make the choice that resonates with you the most!
