In the 16th century, the use of lipstick to make the lips seem full and voluptuous was punishable as witchcraft. Such is the power of lips to beguile and attract that women who used lipstick were thought to be dangerous and could be arrested simply for wearing it.
But what was dangerous and risqué for lower-class women was a requisite part of the role for women in power, and many of the greatest women in history were known not only for their deeds, but also for their rouged lips. Queen (or high priestess) Shub-Ad in Sumer, Egyptian Cleopatra, Roman Messalina, British Elizabeth I, and Russian Catherine the Great were all noted for their power, and the seductiveness of their painted lips.
Today, painted lips are acceptable for everyone and commonplace, but women can go one step further to achieve the youthful vivacity of full lips. If you have always had thin lips or if your lips have thinned with age, you can achieve the full lips you desire with lip augmentation. At the La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic, our experienced injectors can help you achieve subtle, natural, and attractively full lips using dermal fillers.
