Transformation Tuesday: Lip Enhancement
Research suggests that full lips may have as much to do with a woman's perceived age as the appearance of wrinkles.
While lips do thin as we age, sometimes people naturally have thin or un-proportioned lips. This patient came to us wanting a fuller pout, and wanted to increase the volume in her upper lip. Before picture is shown below.
She was nervous, as most first time patients are, about what her lips were going to look like after the treatment. She stressed that she wanted her lips to look natural, not something people would look at and immediately know she had work done. At Silk Touch, we are all about natural, subtle, realistic results! Especially when it comes to lips!
Dr. Kerr used the filler Juvederm XC to inject both the bottom and upper lip. The lips are now not only proportionate to her face shape, but they are proportionate to one another – the bottom lip should always be fuller than the top. This treatment takes less than 30 minutes, and most people have little to no bruising that fades with in a matter of days.
Injection Tip: Avoid Asprin and other blood thinners at least 3 days prior to your injectable appointment. This decreases the chances of bruising!
The patient was thrilled with her results! What do you think? Please share questions and comments below!
