Lip enhancements are becoming a popular way to add youth and shape to a face. Over time, lips naturally lose plumpness and volume, so lip enhancements are a great way to simply bring back these lost qualities. This simple procedure is also done to minimize fine lines and wrinkles surrounding the mouth, adding to an even more youthful look.
Lip enhancements can be done by performing an Injectable Filler. Dermal fillers are injected into strategically chosen areas of the lip or areas surrounding the lips. Often, injections into the lips can be just as important in creating volume as injections into the surrounding areas. For example, to decrease lines and wrinkles on the upper lip, one will sometimes want to fill in the lip lines and lift the corners of the mouth. Often if both aspects of lip enhancement are not completed, the lips can appear unbalanced. The vermilion border, cupids bow, the philtrum and the actual lip body are the parts commonly enhanced.
