A person’s lips say a lot about that person. Lips are used to talk, to smile, to frown, to kiss, and to eat. Many people are dissatisfied, however, with the current appearance of their lips for various reasons. Some people feel that their lips are too thin and desire a plumped, fuller look. Some people have lips that are uneven—higher or fuller one side than another. This can result from a birth defect or from injury. Other people have lower lips that they are satisfied with, but too-thin upper lips that do not match the lower ones. In any case, Dr. Hakimian can find the perfect lip treatment to help you achieve the look you desire.
Many of the dermal fillers offered at Laser Touch Medical Clinic, with the exception of Radiesse®, can be used to plump up thin lips or to even out uneven lips. Dermal Fillers such as Restylane®, Perlane®, Juvéderm®, and Prevelle® can create volume in the lips. These dermal fillers can be injected throughout the lips to create a fuller look, or just to one or more areas of the lips, helping to even out lips that may be plumper in one area than another. Some people choose to just use dermal fillers on their upper lip to reduce thinness and help it match the typically plumper lower lip.
If you have sensitive skin and are nervous about receiving dermal filler injections, Dr. Hakimian may opt to use a dermal filler that includes lidocaine, an anesthetic that can reduce discomfort during and after the injection process. Prevelle® is a dermal fillers that contains lidocaine, and Dr. Hakimian would be happy to discuss this option with you.
