Lip Augmentation

Lip Augmentation - Dermatologist in Jackson, MSOn top of the other issues that arise with aging, your lips can lose some of their fullness. Thankfully this can be remedied with fillers that make your lips look fuller, more beautiful, and completely natural!

In the past, lip augmentation was limited to surgical placement methods that left people with “trout pout” or “duck lips” – both telltale signs that they had had “work” done. Now that there are hyaluronic fillers like Juvederm available, your lips can look fuller and natural, leaving you looking younger, without having to undergo surgery and all of the downtime that goes along with it.

Lip augmentation is not limited to those who want their youthful, fuller lips back. This procedure can also be completed on younger women who simply want fuller lips. Because of this, each dermatological lip augmentation procedure is individualized to meet your needs.

Aging lips

The Cupid’s bow, that telltale sign of youth, disappears as you age. Your upper lip will lose much of its volume, and will become less defined and firm. In short, you upper lip will become flat and undefined. This becomes an obvious sign of aging that can be easily corrected with lip augmenting fillers.

Because fillers are used, Dr. Price can tailor this skin care procedure to your specific needs. You’ll only receive the filler where you need it, and in the amount that you need. This will leave your lips looking natural. No one will be able to tell that your fuller lips are the result of a dermatological procedure.

Lip Treatment Options

The most common lip augmentation option is Juvederm. Juvederm is made of hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs in the body. It lasts longer and is simpler to place in your lips than Collagen.

Juvederm Ultra Plus is another option. Related to standard Juvederm, it also contains hyaluronic acid, but is thicker. This means that it lasts longer, but can form microscopic bumps under the surface of your lips. Thankfully, these bumps are rarely visible to other people.
