As we age, we lose volume in the lips. The corners of the mouth can begin to pull down (mouth frown) giving us a sad or angry look. There can also be some flattening out of the upper central cupid’s bow and the formation of top lip lines (smoker’s lines), causing lipstick to bleed. All of these problems can be addressed with a combination of dermal fillers and muscle relaxing injections. The emphasis with lip rejuvenation is on maintaining a completely natural appearance with restoration of the supporting skin.
Lip and perioral rejuvenation procedures are simple to perform with minimal discomfort. All dermal fillers used contain local anaesthetic. Minor swelling or bruising may be experienced after the procedure, settling quickly to reveal a natural and more youthful mouth and lower face.
