News Flash – Hot lips are here to stay! AND when it comes to lip shapes that rank number #1 as being the HOTTEST, the “Cupid’s Bow” look takes the cake.
The cupid’s bow is a facial feature where the double curve of a human upper lip is said to resemble the bow of Cupid, the Roman god of erotic love. A defined cupid’s bow can have a subtle but significant impact on the overall shape of the lips.
That little V-shaped area in the middle of the top lip is now being treated with a range of procedures aimed at altering its curvature, reversing signs of aging, and improving contour. Here are two non-surgical cupid’s bow treatment plans to check out.
Dermal fillers are nothing new, and they are not just good for addressing size concerns. They can also be a good option for those looking to mimic the contouring effects of lip liner in a longer lasting way.
Cupid’s bow lip fillers aim to alter the shape of the lip for about six to 12 months. The temporary nature makes it an ideal option for those looking to dip their toe in the lip enhancement arena without a big commitment.
A newer treatment available to enhance the shape and volume of lips – and cupid’s bow is lip threading. This procedure uses fine surgical threads to stimulate collagen production which in turn defines the vermillion border and makes lips look plumper without using fillers. The technique is the same that is used for thread lifts on other parts of the face.
Cupid’s Bow in Men
One common misunderstanding is that lip augmentations are just for women. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, an increasing number of men are also seeking out procedures to achieve plumper, more attractive lips.
There are a few distinct biological and anatomical differences between men and women that make treating them with injectables unique. Men, for instance, have larger facial muscles that may require more neuromodulators, and they also tend to metabolize injectables at a quicker rate. If you have questions, please contact us.
