One of the more unsettling changes with aging often involves the upper lip. As a result of time, sun, heredity factors and sometimes exposure to cigarette smoke, small vertical lines and creases often form from the lip edges. When coupled with shrinkage of lip tissues, this creates an undesirable appearance for many patients. Assuming that smoking has been discontinued and sunblocks are wisely used, then the options include effective, non surgical treatments.
Our goal, as always, is providing our patients with natural-looking results. We don’t like lips to look “overdone” or unnaturally full. We take into account the frame of your face and together will help devise a plan to help balance your lips and give you a refined smile.
