Learning About Tattoo Removal

Hello, my name is Molly. When I was a young teen, I thought it was unendingly cool to tattoo myself with band quotes and interesting symbols. I did not care about placement or ink spread. In fact, I did not worry about the impact of those tattoos at all. Unfortunately, upon graduating college, I was covered in tattoos that were making it difficult to find a job in my field. Luckily, I was able to undergo tattoo removal procedures to remove the ink from my body. I will use my website to help other people understand the process of having their tattoos professionally removed. Please visit again soon.

Lips Too Thin? Consider These Solutions


When you look in the mirror, are you bothered by your thin lips? Do you imagine how much richer your life would be if only you had the thick, plump lips of your favorite celebrity? You don't have to keep pouting each time you look in the mirror -- there are solutions to your thin lip problem. Here's a look at three limp plumping options, one of which is short-term, one of which is long-term, and one of which is permanent.

Short-Term: Lip Plumping Serum

If the idea of needles and cosmetic procedures does not appeal to you, or if you're on a tight budget and want plump lips in a hurry, visit your local cosmetics store. Many makeup companies sell lip treatments that, when applied to your lips, draw more blood to the area. This causes your lips to look more plump -- at least for an hour or two. Some formulas are designed to be applied under your lipstick, while other formulas have color built in so you only have to apply one product.

Longer Term: Hyaluronic Acid Injections

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is found naturally in your body, which makes it a safe option for lip injections. Once injected, it smooths out wrinkles and adds bulk to your lips, making them appear fuller. While this is not a permanent solution to your thin lips, the effects will last between 6 and 9 months, and when they wear off, you can visit your dermatologist for another treatment.

Hyaluronic acid injections do cause some swelling and tenderness for about 24 hours after the procedure, so don't plan your injection appointment too close to an important event. The risk of side effects following injections is very low, and you can minimize that risk even further by avoiding alcohol and aspirin prior to your appointment.

Permanent: Surgical Augmentation

If you want to plump your lips up once and for all, then you may want to consider having them permanently augmented. An oral or plastic surgeon can implant silicon or another artificial material into your lips, making them look permanently fuller.

Not everyone is a candidate for surgical lip augmentation. You need to be healthy enough to undergo anesthesia and to heal properly from the surgery. However, if your doctor does approve you for the surgery, it is a rather simple process that takes about an hour. You will experience some pain and swelling after the surgery, but with ice and pain relievers, it should be manageable.
