Lip rejuvenation is one of my favorite aesthetic procedures. The lips are a focal point on our face, and the process of aging does not spare them. Very often, once you replenish the volume lost and restore the anatomy, the lips look luscious and wrinkle-free again, giving you a much more youthful appearance. I often find lip rejuvenation the best correction to give you a younger appearance without breaking the bank.
Lip enhancement for those with thin, small lips or asymmetries will undoubtedly require the filler, which will produce enhanced and full lips but proportional to the rest of your face.
Fillers can be used conservatively and rejuvenate without any enhancement, or they can be used to create more volume. We have all seen pictures of scary lips posted on the internet or women walking by us on the street with lips that look unnatural; however, this negative aesthetic is not related to the filler used but is, instead, caused by the specific procedure or the physician. Many women opt for extreme results. My approach has been more conservative. During the consultation, we first determine what the best rejuvenating procedure is, then we discuss your budget, and, finally, we opt for the procedure that is best suited for you. We want to make sure the result is natural, subtle, and is one that does not change your appearance.
There are a variety of fillers that can be used for lip correction. They are available with Galderma’s Restylane® Kysse or Allergan’s JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC and JUVÉDERM® Ultra. It is important to understand what each one does and how it is injected to provide the desired look and avoid complications.
