Forget tall, dark, and handsome. This Valentine’s Day we want you to find love when you look in the mirror. Let’s start with your kisser. Are your lips perfectly plump and ready to smooch?
We’re sharing our best tips for lip enhancement this Valentine’s Day. Love your lips, lose the lines!
What’s Keeping You from Loving Your Lips?
Finding love can be a rocky road. Get your relationship with your lips back on track with a targeted treatment to address your biggest lip concerns.
Where do your lips fall short?
- Smoker’s Lines- Lines around the lips are called smoker’s lines, but they can occur even if you don’t smoke. These unwanted lines can cause lipstick to bleed and leaves the mouth with a wrinkled, aging appearance. These lines can be smoothed out with dermal fillers, one of the easiest ways to enhance the lips. The treatment takes just a few minutes and provides months of wrinkle smoothing and lip enhancement.
- Deflated or Thin- For naturally thin lips or lips that have lost volume with age, lip augmentation can provide a much-needed volume boost. We have a few different options for lip augmentation. Dermal fillers are the most popular choice; they are quick and easy and provide natural-looking results. Fillers do need regular retreatment to maintain results. If you want a longer-lasting solution to thinning lips, we also offer lip implants and fat grafting.
- Gummy Smile- The lips frame the teeth, but in some smiles, the gums take over. A gummy smile occurs when too much of your gumline shows when you smile. Lip surgery can improve many aspects of your smile and is customized to address your specific concerns. From gummy smiles to lip asymmetry, surgery can correct most lip complaints.
If you’re unsure what treatment you need, we’d love to meet. Sort through your options at a consultation to create your ideal lip. We offer surgical and non-surgical options for lip enhancement.
Dermal Fillers- 15 Minutes to Lip Love
If you want to enhance your lips in a hurry, few treatments can compare with dermal fillers. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, but there’s still time to enhance your lips before Cupid runs away.
Our favorite filler for lip augmentation is Restylane® Silk. This hyaluronic acid filler is specially formulated for the lips. It features a smaller and smoother particle size than a typical dermal filler. This specialized formulation allows us to create luscious lips that are incredibly soft and natural-looking. Results are temporary, but most patients only need injections a few times a year.
Typical dermal filler treatment for lip augmentation takes us about 15 minutes, start to finish. After treatment, head right back to work, or take the day off for a rom-com binge on Netflix. It’s Valentine’s Day after all.
