Non-Surgical Lip Augmentation
The non-surgical Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure designed to create fuller, smoother lips, and can also reduce fine lines around the mouth. Lip augmentation can be accomplished with the use of injectable fillers and perhaps the use of botulinum toxin (Botox®). This is not only an appearance-enhancing procedure, but also an anti-aging procedure, since thinner lips are one of the most noticeable and universal signs of aging.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
The best candidates for non-surgical lip augmentation are non-smokers who are in generally good health and who have a positive outlook and realistic expectations about the procedure’s outcome. Those with very thin lips, fine lines around the mouth, or asymmetry of the lips can benefit from the non-surgical lip augmentation.
Dr. Bolourian uses a variety of injectables for non-surgical lip augmentation. JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC and JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC are amongst the most common injectables used by Dr. Bolourian to achieve natural looking results. Dr. Bolourian also uses Restylane KYSSE and Restylane SILK mainly for perioral wrinkles.
On your consultation, Dr. Bolourian will discuss all your options so you can make an educated decision about choosing the right procedure for your younger and rejuvenated lips.
Botox® Cosmetic: Use of Botulinum toxin (Botox®) can lift up the corners of the mouth and correct wrinkles around the lip which complements injectable fillers in rejuvenating the lips.
