Dermal lip fillers in top 'new treatments' list for 2012

Demand for all cosmetic procedures is on the up and dermal lip fillers are top of the most requested treatments for 2012 so far. Women are increasingly looking for naturally fuller lips, a trend inspired by celebrities such as Angelina Jolie and Scarlet Johanssen, and are turning to dermal lip fillers to achieve them. While many cosmetic surgery patients are still requesting body shapes like those of Pippa Middleton and Anna Friel, it is non-surgical treatments such as Restylane fillers that are becoming popular ‘lunch hour’ options.Small amounts of Restylane are injected into the lips to plump them up without giving the dreaded ‘trout pout’, made infamous by Leslie Ash and, more recently, Lindsay Lohan. The natural-looking results last for between four and six months, when the filler is absorbed back into the body. Despite being a non-surgical procedure, experts advise prospective patients to carry out thorough research into the cosmetic surgery clinic and its nurses before undergoing the treatment.
