Full lips are a key element of almost every photo in every fashion magazine. Unfortunately, not everyone is blessed with a pair of naturally beautiful lips. If you have them, the elements, smoking, and the aging process eventually take their toll. The corners of the mouth begin to droop. The V-shaped area of the upper lip known as Cupid’s Bow begins to flatten out and lose its youthful fullness. Vertical wrinkles or Smoker’s Lines begin to appear, causing your lipstick to bleed. That once sensual look is gone or greatly diminished.
Thanks to today’s many medical advances there is help. Aging lips can be rejuvenated and thin full lips can be enhanced in Burlington and Milton with lip augmentation.
Injectable Lip Augmentation
JUVEDERM® and RESTYLANE® are both a well-known family of dermal fillers and have developed a product specifically to enhance the lips and pout. A hyaluronic acid-based gel filler, both JUVEDERM® RESTYLANE® and Volbella™ give you a soft, natural look. Dr. Assad is certified to use both RESTYLANE® and VOLBELLA™ , creating an option for patients wanting natural fuller lips.
How Lip Fillers Work
Dermal filler for lip enhancement provides greater lift capacity and delivers natural-looking, long-lasting results. Not only do they boost volume, but also smooth vertical creases around the lip line to provide symmetry to the lips.
What to Expect
Both RESTYLANE® and Volbella™ are injected with a very fine needle into the lips. These fillers are premixed with the effective local anesthetic lidocaine, making the treatment experience more comfortable. Swelling of the lips after the procedure may last from one to two days. Although rare, on some patients the injection may cause some bruising. Makeup can be applied on the treated area and you may resume your normal activities immediately after treatment.
