Lip Enhancment

For many people, a fuller and more sensuous mouth comes high on their wish list. From our late twenties our lips start to become thinner with fine lines eventually starting to appear around the mouth. By injecting a small amount of natural hyaluronic filler you can restore your lips back to their former glory. Whether it’s to add lost volume or just to redefine the lip contours you will be impressed by our instant results with CosmeDoctors lip enhancement procedures. You decide how subtle / obvious you want your new lips to appear.

Lips can be re-contoured to bring the youthful look back by placing gel along the lip borders (vermillion). Redefining this edge with natural fillers lead to a more youthful and appealing look. It also prevents lipstick “bleeding” into the small lines around the lips. The fold that extends up towards the nose (philtrum ridges) can be defined by injecting the gel into them (Cupid’s Bow Definition). To achieve optimal results a combination of steps are often used which are individually tailored to suit you.

One of the most effective ways to achieve a more friendly and inviting look is through non-surgical lip enhancement. At CosmeDoctors, we utilise only the best, non-permanent and safe dermal fillers to help achieve a more alluring look in a short period of time. We can also help reverse a downward smile, add volume to thinning lips, slightly lengthen the mouth, and smooth out vertical lines that extend from the lip border (smoker’s lines) or that extend downward from the corners of the mouth (marionette lines) – all non-surgically. If you are simply seeking a more voluptuous, sexy appearance with more lip volume, this can be achieved virtually overnight.

Also, the corners of the mouth (oral commissures) deepen over time as volume is lost from the face. This may be present along with the marionette line, or by itself. These conditions cause you to look unhappy even when you’re not and are one of the biggest contributors to an aged appearance.

Marionette lines and deep oral commissures are treated much the same way. Precisely placed dermal filler, in the area below the corners, and in the corner of the lip itself, will soften or eliminate the problem. This can be done without changing the volume of the lip, if that is your preference. A small amount of Botox, placed in the muscle that pulls downward on the corner of the mouth may be recommended as well, depending on the patient. The result is a happier, less tired, more natural looking appearance.

To further enhance the effect, the lines that go up towards the nose (philtrum ridges) can be defined by injecting the dermal filler into them, as well. To achieve the optimal result, a combination of these steps is often used. This is a procedure where experience is of great importance. To avoid an unnatural look (the “duckbill look / Trout “, or an unbalanced lip), your choice of injector is paramount. Always choose a doctor who has performed many (preferably hundreds) of lip enhancement procedures. It is important that the doctor not only listens to what you hope to achieve, but has an artful eye as well.
