Lip augmentation is one of the most popular treatments amongst women today. It involves placing small amounts of dermal filler into the lip, to add volume and shape and often to help improve symmetry. At New You Aesthetics, it is important to us that we achieve harmony in your facial features. When you visit us to discuss your lip enhancement, we provide a thorough consultation and work with you to achieve your desired result, looking at your individual aesthetics, talking about your desired outcome, expectations and realistic achievements.
As we age, we lose volume in our face including our lips. Fine lines and wrinkles start to appear around the lips and they usually become thin. Lip augmentation may help reverse these signs of aging and plump up the lips for a more youthful appearance. There are many different products available on the market, and, depending on what you have discussed in your consultation, the perfect filler will be chosen for you.
