Many people think lip enhancement only involves the lips themselves. Recognizing the lip as an area that includes the philtrum and entire mouth area helps keep the lip/face balance in synch.
- Fillers for delicate lips and lip lines include the softer gels such a Juvederm Volbella and Restylane Silk.
- Fillers for small lips and areas “around” the lip help restore lost volume that occurs with age and may include Belotero, Juvederm XC and Restylane.
- Potential lip border and lip line treatments also exist within the NovaThread program.
- Lip balance with other facial areas is important for a natural look. You may need other facial fillers and a relaxer to achieve the most harmonious outcome. Many women like the effects of Voluma to heighten the cheekbones.
Lip augmentation requires a delicate balance. Younger women can enjoy fuller lips because they still enjoy pronounced 3D contours that can “carry” full lips. More mature women generally prefer to bypass the ultra full lip to maintain facial harmony with other features that are no longer as pronounced.
