Lips

Undeniably, your mouth is a focal point on your face. When you speak or smile, your lips are probably the first thing someone notices about you. However, if you have thin or asymmetrical lips, it can cause you to be self-conscious, and even go so far as to affect your overall appearance and the impression you make on those around you. At The Rejuva Center at Williams, we understand the importance of beautifully shaped lips, so we offer several treatments designed to help you achieve the perfect cupid’s bow or fuller pout you desire – all without surgery.

Lip Enhancement and Shaping

Your lips are naturally symmetrical, with the width of your lips equalling 30-50 percent of your facial width. Even with this specific measurement, the appearance of your lips can be affected by several factors, including age. As the years pass, your mouth starts to turn down, lines develop, and volume loss occurs. And because your lips are such a vital part of your overall appearance, changes in contour and plumpness can make you look older than you wish.

Lip augmentation is a popular procedure because of its ability to turn thin, wrinkled or asymmetrical lips into the perfect pout that you’ve always wanted.

Ideal candidates for lip augmentation are those who wish to:

  • Add or restore volume to thin lips
  • Improve balance and symmetry between your upper and lower lips
  • Enhance the shape or contour of your lips
  • Smooth out vertical lip lines (lipstick or smoker’s lines)

If you are bothered by the appearance of your lips, our highly trained and experienced staff can address your concerns and give you back your confidence in your smile. In just one short treatment, you can leave our office with fuller, more shapely and defined lips – with zero need for downtime or recovery.

There are a variety of injectable fillers available for lip enhancement, and which one you choose will depend on your needs and desired results. When you come into The Rejuva Center at Williams for your consultation, we will talk with you about your goals for lip enhancement. You may decide to plump up lost volume in one or both of your lips, or simply add a bit of definition to the contours or outline of your upper lip. Whatever you decide, we will work with you to ensure that you leave our care with the gorgeous results you expect.

What to Expect from Your Lip Filler Procedure and Results

Prior to your lip augmentation treatment, your lips will be cleaned, and a topical anesthetic may be administered to maximize your comfort during the procedure. A small needle is then used to strategically inject the filler into the areas targeted for treatment. Once the injections are complete, you may return to your daily activities right away.

You will see an immediate difference in your lips following your filler session, though you may notice a bit more swelling and redness than you expect. These are common side effects of fillers, and will resolve on their own within a day or so. Any discomfort can be eased by applying ice or using over-the-counter pain relievers.

Results of your lip augmentation typically last up to a year, depending on the filler used and how quickly it is absorbed by your body. You will need to schedule regular injection sessions in order to maintain your more youthful, beautiful lips.

Lip Eversion or “Lip Flip”

Another symptom of age, besides a loss in volume in your lips, is that your upper lip begins to roll downward, making your lips look even thinner. The nonsurgical lip eversion technique, or “lip flip” uses Botox to create the illusion of fuller, more youthful lips.

The treatment involves strategically injecting Botox into your orbicularis oris, the muscle around your mouth that controls the movement of the mouth and lips. When Botox is injected into the superficial muscle layer along the side of the lips, it relaxes the muscle enough to flip your lip outward without affecting function.

The result is that your upper lip is pulled upwards into a more youthful position, while elevating it off of the lower lip, both of which work to give you the appearance of fuller lips without the need for fillers or surgery. The lip flip procedure is virtually painless, and takes under 30 minutes to perform, allowing you to immediately return to your daily activities. Side effects include minor bruising, redness, swelling or pain at the injection sites, but these are mild and resolve quickly. Your results will last up to about four months, so regular maintenance is required. Additionally, you may choose to augment your lips further using fillers, but that is something you can decide with your expert injector.
