In the past, lip enhancement treatments were reserved solely for individuals that wanted to increase the size of their lips.
However, these procedures are now being used to address a wide range of cosmetic concerns, including thin lips, poorly defined lips, smoker’s lines, a gummy smile, and flat lips.
So, what’s the best lip enhancement treatment for you?
Here are three different ways that you can get lips you love.
If you want to add volume to you lips, improve their shape, or define your lip line, dermal fillers may be the best lip enhancement treatment for you.
In fact, a hyaluronic acid filler like Restylane or Juvederm is an excellent way to achieve soft, smooth, and natural results. These injectable products easily attract and hold moisture in soft tissue to provide nearly instant plumping and hydrating effects.
Results typically last four-to-10 months, and can be reversed or modified with an enzyme solution called hyaluronidase.
Additionally, a skin resurfacing treatment, whether a laser, microneedling, chemical peel, or energy-based technology, can promote cellular renewal, stimulate collagen, and repair damaged tissue.
Most of these procedures require a series of treatments, and results occur more gradually than with dermal fillers. However, treatment benefits may be longer-lasting.
If you are concerned about a gummy smile or seeking a subtle pout, neurotoxins may be the best lip enhancement treatment for you. When injected into lip muscles, a product like Botox or Dysport is able to relax muscles to conceal gums and boost the mid-portion of your upper lip.
