Lip Plumping / Augmentation For Thin or Aging Lips
The lips, along with the eyes, are one of our most noticed facial features. While some people are naturally blessed with full, well-shaped lips others have thin or uneven lips.
Aging also affects the lips. With time, lips lose their smoothness and become less plump due to collagen damage and loss of subcutaneous fat within the lips. Fine lines and deeper wrinkles become more evident on and around the lips. Corners of the mouth can begin to droop. Also, some of the bright redness is reduced. All of this makes you appear older. Luckily, both naturally thin lips and aging lips can be corrected safely and painlessly without surgery.
Get Fuller Lips, Eliminate Vertical Lip Lines and Correct Drooping Corners
During lip augmentation and rejuvenation of the aging mouth, three areas of the mouth need to be addressed: the outer mouth (laugh lines), edge of the lip (lipstick lines) and the inner lip. Today, injectable fillers can be used to tackle these various areas, but it takes experience and expertise to know which ones are best and how they should be applied.
