Do lips age?
Just like other parts of your face your lips age. The lip cushions become less full, the Cupid’s bow becomes flatter, the lip border becomes less defined and the corners of the mouth start to droop downwards.
Women of all ages want their lips enhanced. Younger women often opt for a fuller lip look whilst older women seek a subtle look.
What does lip treatment with Dermal Filler involve?
Dr. Jodie will assess your natural lip and carefully tailor your treatment to suit your face. A combination of local anaesthetic, numbing cream or ice will be used to ensure you are comfortable. Dr. Jodie uses a micro-cannula (fine blunt-ended instrument) to reduce bruising and swelling, but fine-tunes with a small needle to ensure the best result.
What factors affect how my lips will be styled?
Your natural lip shape and structure influence both the degree of fullness and shape that can be achieved. Lips that are already pouty are usually amenable to voluminous lip treatments whereas thin lips may not be.
Age is another consideration; full perky lips will look out of place on a mature woman (as they may on some younger women). More often than not, mature women require rejuvenation of the area around the lips as well for a more natural result.
Ethnicity may also guide your Lip Filler treatment. Patients with Asian heritage best suit an upper and lower lip that are similar in size. Whereas those with Caucasian heritage best suit an upper lip that is smaller than the lower lip.
Facial balance and harmony is key; Dr. Jodie will guide you to the best result.
