For centuries, a woman’s lips have been viewed as a sign of youthfulness and sensuality. More recently, the entertainment and fashion industry have brought the lips back into the forefront of fashion. Look around. It seems that full, luscious lips are everywhere. Sensual lips are the key element of almost every photo in every fashion magazine. It is no coincidence that Angelina Jolie is one of the most photographed women in the world and was voted “the most beautiful woman alive.”
Unfortunately, not everyone is blessed with a pair of naturally beautiful lips. The few who are don’t get to keep them without a little help. Over time the sun, the elements, smoking and the aging process take their toll. The corners of the mouth begin to droop. The V-shaped area of the upper lip known as Cupid’s Bow begins to flatten out and lose its youthful fullness. Vertical wrinkles or Smoker’s Lines begin to appear, causing your lipstick to bleed. Thanks to fillers like Restylane and Juvederm, those aging lips can be rejuvenated and less full lips can be enhanced.
Dr. Mark Lowney has perfected the art of painless lip enhancement using a dental block to achieve sumptuous lips in about 15 to 20 minutes. Following lip enhancement your lips may remain swollen for a few hours and sometimes mild bruising occurs. You may return to normal activities the same day. Touch up treatments may be necessary.
