Even those born with perfectly full, balanced lips find a loss in volume as they age. Lip fillers create symmetry, lift the mouth corners, enhance outlines, restore volume or soften wrinkles to achieve that perfect smile.
The best fillers contain naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid (HA) that attracts water and creates plumpness. It’s the loss of HA from our bodies as we age that causes our skin to thin, dry out, and create wrinkles.
The highest quality dermal fillers replenish HA in a stabilized form lasting 8-12 months. Some lip fillers are designed to create volume while others simply give a hydrated look with minimal volume. Your personal preferences will always be taken into consideration.
For those worrying about over filled lips it is helpful to know that HA fillers are easily reversed with tiny injections of an enzyme called hyaluronidase. However an experienced aesthetic doctor will ensure your results are natural, harmonious and never overdone. A good aesthetic doctor will be conservative and err on the side of caution.
Less is more when it comes to lip augmentation. Refinement, subtlety, and aesthetic proportion are all important. Oversized lips are are now out of fashion, even in Hollywood, and are unlikely to make a comeback any time soon. We focus on rejuvenation or asymmetrical correction to create a facial balance.
