Have you always craved fuller, more luscious lips, or are your lips simply showing the signs of ageing?
Ageing can cause changes in our lips, they loose their volume and can begin to flatten, lines around the mouth can appear and the crisp lip border can disappear and result in your lipstick bleeding. The upper lip may increase in length while the surrounding lip tissue also looses its volume. Dermal Lip Fillers are used to put back volume in the lips and resore the equilibrium and shape.
Fuller or more balanced lips are high on many peoples wish list but there is often concern about “juju” lips or the “trout pout” that the media tend to highlight. Our doctors at Jeunesse MedSpa® will ensure that your lips fit your face appropriately, giving subtle and very natural appearing lips.
We recommend hyaluron based fillers which is a substance found naturally in your body. This makes them an incredibly safe treatment with results that can easily be tailored to you.
