Lip Rejuvenation is designed to restore a fuller and more defined appearance to aging lips and reduce “smoker lines.”
As we age, our skin starts to lose its collagen and elastin, which is what makes our skin look full and smooth. As the lips lose volume, the lines from muscle movements start to form. Injections such as Botox® or Dysport® can help relax the lips. These help soften the lines and slightly lifts the upper lip, but does not replace the volume. There is usually no down time with these injections, but it takes four to seven days to take full effect.
To replace the volume loss, we use different lip rejuvenation techniques. We have Hyaluronic acid fillers we can use to smooth out your lip lines without making your lips larger. There can be some swelling, so it is best to plan to do this when you can stay out of the public eye for a day or two. The results will last six to nine months and you will love your lips!
