Lip Enhancement

BENEFITS

Overtime lips tend to lose volume leading to a lack of definition of the lip borders. Small wrinkles around the lip margins lead to bleeding of lipstick radiating around from the lips. At times the corners of the mouth may droop further affecting the overall appearance of the lips. Revitalizing the lips can make a big difference to the overall facial appearance, a person’s self esteem and confidence. Excessive gummy smile can be improved and asymmetries are addressed for a greater harmony and balance.

HOW IT WORKS

We address the various components of the aged lip in a comprehensive manner Dermal fillers replenish volume and restore definition and luster to the lips. We employ a new technology called “Ferning�? which avoids direct injection into the lips themselves resulting in a more natural appearance with less swelling and bruising. Downturned corners of the mouth can be brought up by both dermal fillers and Botox leading to a more youthful and happy appearance. Fine Lines radiating from the lip are also softened by a combination of dermal fillers, Botox and laser.
