It's all in the kiss
Did you know that no two lips are the same? Seeing as it’s an international day for kissing, I’m going to answer this question. It’s true lip prints are a bit like fingerprints all those depressions and plumped out parts are totally unique to the individual. Remember when you were a teenager learning all about lipstick and you would copy your mom as she applied her favorite color and then kissed a tissue? Or when you’d see a mirror in a public bathroom that had a pretty lipstick kiss on it? Those pretty imprints were always so unique and magical like snowflakes! But bear in mind having lip fillers can change that imprint by smoothing out the contours.
Did you also know that kissing is good for you? Am I just saying that to be dramatic? No. Kissing generates saliva which protects against gum disease, tooth decay and oral infections. Saliva neutralizes acids in the mouth that break down tooth enamel by washing away acidic residue from eating. When acid damages enamel calcium, phosphorous, fluoride and other minerals in saliva repair the enamel. So when we kiss, we release more saliva which is great news for the teeth, but that doesn’t mean you can throw away your tooth brush and floss and just kiss!
But kissing can do so much more, it can help your mental health by releasing feel good chemicals in the brain, you’ll get a cocktail of chemicals, including oxytocin, dopamine and serotonin to make you feel euphoric and happy. Kissing also reduces stress and makes us feel safe it causes the stress hormone cortisol to drop and improves general wellbeing. Low stress = increased longevity. Another reason to pucker up don’t you think? But I’m saving the best health benefit for last, did you know kissing can burn calories? Okay, it’s not enough to lose a dress size but casually kissing can burn about 2 calories per minute, more active kissing involving some dancing for example can up your calorie burn from 5-26 calories!
So let’s get serious about lips, if you want to get some quality kissing done but feel like your lips need some TLC then let me help. If they’re a little deflated or not as plump as you’d like then I have some fabulous filler options. Fillers do not have to feel or look unnatural, in fact what’s the point if they do? Lips need to look and feel good that’s why I use a conservative approach, filling gently and bit by bit. Our fillers are very elegant, they feel smooth and silky and you can really tell the difference in the application. Sometimes I combine lip fillers with neurotoxins to soften any fine lines around the mouth and you get a double whammy of lippy goodness!
