Lip Augmentation & Enhancement
Who doesn’t want beautiful lips? Your lips may be naturally thin or showing signs of thinning or wrinkles due to aging. A lip enhancement (lip augmentation) treatment gives you the full, shapely and beautiful lips you’ve always wanted.
A lip enhancement will increase lip volume for a fuller, plumper look, define the border of the lips (vermillion border) for a more defined shape and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in your lips.
How it Works
A lip enhancement treatment uses a facial filler such as Restylane® or Juvéderm® dermal filler. These products are gels made with hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. This acid helps regulate and maintain cell growth but, as we age, the levels diminish and our lip tissue shrinks, making us look older.
Studies have shown that these lip fillers provide noticeable results after treatment and are free of serious or long-term side effects because the hyaluronic acid is almost identical to that produced by the body.
What to Expect
Experience is key. Performed by an experienced doctor, a lip enhancement will give you both beautiful lips and natural looking results. If someone is inexperienced, or has poor aesthetic sense, there is the risk that your lips may become too big or have a stiff, unnatural appearance.
The results are noticeable after treatment and can last about 6 – 8 months, but vary from person to person. You can have a touch up done whenever you like to maintain a consistent appearance.
