Your lips are one of the most important focal points of your face. You talk, smile and kiss with them. Even before actress Angelina Jolie’s trademark pout appeared on magazine covers, full lips have long been a sign of beauty. Some of us once loved our lips but have noticed the fullness and definition diminishing over time. Others are just not pleased with what nature gave them. Don’t even think about the Kylie Jenner lip challenge! There have never been more safe and effective options for lip enhancement in Westchester County.
Westchester Lip Rejuvenation
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons Report, lip augmentation procedures have risen 48% from the year 2000 to 2015. Most Westchester lip rejuvenation patients choose soft tissue fillers to restore volume in the lips or to improve their shape and definition. Juvederm and Restylane are popular injectable HA fillers, a substance naturally occurring in the body and replenished by way of injection. Restylane Silk is a newer product to the market and great for treating lips because it’s soft gel formulation yields smooth results.
A common concern for cosmetic patients over 40 is wrinkles around the lip area, known as peri-oral lines. Belotero is a filler used to smooth those pesky fine lines with successful and natural-looking results. Neuromodulators such as Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are used to treat the downturn at the corners of the mouth, a tell-tale sign of age. Any discomfort can be alleviated with the use of a local anesthetic (some products contain it within their formulation) or topical numbing cream. The only common side effects are possible minor swelling or bruising for a few days at the injection site. Note that results are not permanent, but can last from four months to over one year depending on the option selected.
A natural and beautiful look can be achieved if nature did not gift you the lips you wish you had. So pucker up! A skilled injector can help you explore your desired look in the context of your facial shape and other features. Always choose a physician or Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist with extensive experience in lip rejuvenation techniques before undergoing this or any aesthetic treatment.
