Lose years off your lips! Lip enhancement is a great option for those who are looking for fuller, plumper, and more youthful lips. Various lip enhancement and rejuvenation procedures are offered by our doctor to correct a number of issues.
Aging, genetics and environmental factors such as sun exposure and smoking all contribute to physical changes in the lips. These may include thinning from volume loss, vertical lines, sagging of the corners of the mouth, marionette lines or creases, and loss of the normal lip architecture, such as the Cupid's bow.
In addition, lengthening of the upper lip may occur with loss of dental show when smiling.
Types of Lip Enhancement
Fortunately, a variety of options are available for lip enhancement and rejuvenation. Long-lasting injectable fillers, fat injections, and permanent implants can restore volume loss and proportional shape to the lips.
Fillers are often used to correct adjacent nasolabial folds, oral commissures, and marionette lines or creases. In addition, fillers may be used to treat lip lines and restore normal lip architecture and definition.
Surgical procedures—including lip lifts, corner mouth lifts, and vermilion border lifts—can also be performed under local anesthesia with minimal scars.
Finally, laser resurfacing, chemical peels and occasionally dermabrasion can resurface aging lips, and improve lip lines and wrinkles.
A consultation is the best way to determine the best methods of lip rejuvenation.
