Currently lip augmentation is one of the most sought after non-surgical cosmetic treatments requested by woman of all ages. The most common treatment for improving lip volume and shape is with an injectable filler such as Juvéderm® or Restylane Silk®. At the BioSpa Newport Beach we go beyond simply injecting filler to create luscious lips. We find using a combination of treatments gives our patients a Perfect Pout they can be proud of.
The focus with lip augmentation has really just been about adding fullness, however many women can benefit from further perfecting their pout by using a combination of filler, Botox, and laser or a chemical peel. We like to plump the lips and enhance or better define the “Cupid’s Bow” using Juvéderm. We may add Restylane Silk if there are fine lines around the mouth. Botox is used to relax the muscles in the upper lip to reduce the appearance of lines created by muscle movement. We also use Botox to help turn up the outer corners of the mouth when needed. Lastly, if there are a lot of deeper lines around the mouth, we will recommend a medical peel or laser treatment to further soften the appearance.
For centuries artist’s have used the “Divine Proportion” to create harmony and balance. This is often applied to the art of cosmetic surgery as well. While everyone’s facial structure is different, everyone’s ideal lip shape and size is as well. The diagrams below demonstrate what resembles the most ideal lip.
