Lip Enhancement-What you should know


Hyaluronic acid fillers or fat is the only thing that should be injected into the lips. Juvederm XC is my preferred filler. Both Juvederm XC Ultra and Ultra Plus have now been FDA approved for enhancement of the lips. This treatment can be done to make the lips plumper and fuller and also to treat upper lip lines known as rhytids. Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid gel. This substance is found naturally in our bodies (it bathes our joints and keeps them lubricated). When injected into the face it is broken down over time and a small amount of collagen is left behind. This process takes about a year. Now here is what you need to know about proportion in the lips. When enhancing the lips, there has to be a certain ratio. The upper lip must be smaller than the lower lip. The ratio is 1/3 to 2/3. So if you have your upper lip enhanced you will probably have to have a small amount put into your lower lip. Otherwise you will start to look like some of those ridiculous women in Hollywood! Also, the most natural look is to have the provider go along your vermillion border first and then into the lip pillows. But now I'm giving away all my secrets :-)
