Since the 1960s, lip fillers have been a popular way to enhance the lips. From the introduction of injectable bovine collagen in the 1980s to the use of silicone in the 1960s, lip fillers have come a long way. In the early 20th century, lip injections were made of a waxy liquid known as paraffin. Today, fillers are much more sophisticated and are made of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the body and, essentially, in every skin care product in history.
Hyaluronic acid lip fillers contain substances similar to those found in the body, making an allergic reaction highly unlikely to occur. In addition, lidocaine, a local anesthetic, is often added to lip filler formulas to make the procedure a relatively pain-free experience. Lip fillers are the most Googled beauty treatments in the UK and have been a mainstay for decades. From Angelina Jolie to Kylie Jenner, thick lips have long been the focal point of magazine cover photos, inspiring women to put their aesthetic attention where their mouth is.
With Cosmo's transmission of lip injections at the end of July via Facebook Live, interest in this treatment obviously remains very high, indicating that its long history will be lengthened. However, as the UK does not regulate non-surgical procedures, there are no reliable statistics available for lip fillers in the UK and their use.
