Lip fillers can be injected safely and with ease using the hyaluronic acid filler Juvederm. The Juvederm range of products contain local anaesthetic to help make the treatment experience more comfortable so you can relax and enjoy your new look.
Lip fillers can be used to:
• Increase fullness of the lips.
• Add definition to the vermillion borders, philtrum and cupid’s bow
• Create a more defined smile
• Fill out lip creases, giving the mouth area a youthful, rejuvenated appearance
Drooping of corners of the mouth causing a ‘sad face’ look
Botox can be injected into the depressor muscles which cause the face to sag as we age and cause that downward turn of the corners of the mouth giving the face an expression of sadness.
This anti-wrinkle treatment works by reducing the muscle activity which causes everything to droop and hence minimise the wrinkles and drooping at the corners of the mouth.
Fillers can also be used in conjunction, to lift and support the corners of the mouth to give you that ‘happy lips’ look.
A ‘Gummy Smile’ occurs if when you smile, your upper lip elevates too far above your upper teeth, exposing the gummy flesh that sits above the teeth.
Botulinum toxin (well known as Botox®) injections can help treat the appearance of gummy smiles by reducing the activity of the muscle that elevates the upper lip. It is a non-invasive treatment that is so simple, yet so effective.
Occasionally, the gummy smile is also aggravated by a thin upper lip that doesn’t sufficiently cover the gums on smiling – this can be overcome by increasing the size of the upper lip through dermal filler treatment which is also a non-surgical and safe procedure.
