Lip enhancement is a popular procedure for patients seeking more volume in their lips. Some patients may have been born with naturally small lips. Enhancing lip volume can provide the plumpness they have always desired.
Others may have lost volume as part of the natural ageing process. For these patients, adding fullness can restore a youthful appearance.
A lip enhancement treatment is tailored to the patients desires. Adding filler to the border between the skin and the red part of the lips adds definition. Adding filler to the red parts of the lips adds volume. Sometimes a combination of techniques can be used.
Many patients are satisfied with their results after the use of 1ml of filler. Additional volume can be achieved by using an extra 1ml.
With natural ageing, the lips can become thinner and lose definition. As this occurs, the lips may look small or deflated. Some patients complain of the lips appearing too thin and stretched, especially when they smile. Sometimes, lines can occur with time and result in “bleeding” of lipstick.
A lip rejuvenation treatment aims to reduce lip lines and restore both definition and lost volume. Lip lines are diminished by adding the filler into the lines. Lip definition is improved by injecting the filler into the lip border where the skin meets the red parts of the lips as well as the corners of the lips. Using filler in these areas provides a subtle volume enhancement. Additional lip volume is achieved by adding filler to the red parts of the lips.
Many patients are satisfied with their result when 1 ml of filler is used. Additional volume can be obtained when 2mls is used.
