The lips are one of the most attention-grabbing features of the face, and lips that are thin or beginning to show wrinkles are a noticable sign of aging. Lip enhancement and rejuvenation procedures are some of the most popular cosmetic procedures, and patients of Abadir Associates have a wide range of options for improving the look and feel of their lips.
Botox and Dysport
Botox and Dysport are quick, versatile, injectable solutions to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. The injections act to relax the muscles around the mouth that form wrinkles, which smooths the skin from underneath and provides a younger-looking appearance.
Botox and Dysport injections are quick, non-invasive, and offer dramatic results that last for up to four months. The treatments are also extremely affordable and offer natural-looking results within days. For more information, visit our Botox treatment page.
Injectable lip fillers – such as Restylane, Juvederm, and Radiesse – offer fast and natural-looking results with no downtime and very few side effects. The soft and pliable nature of the treatment offers flexibility, and it allows your dermatologist to sculpt your lips to your specifications.
Lip injections are an excellent way to lift the skin and fill in hollow areas of the face. Different brands offer different consistencies, allowing Dr. Abadir to choose the right filler for each patient’s needs. Patients often see a reduction in wrinkles and an increase in volume right away, and results can last for up to a year.
Collagen is a natural substance found in the human body that cushions the joints, bones, and provides shape to the skin. With collagen injections, Dr. Abadir can fill and perfect lips that are thinner or showing signs of aging.
Collagen treatments are a quick and effective method of returning collagen to the lips and plumping their appearance. Many brands, such as Zyderm, Zyplast, Cosmoderm, and Cosmoplast, contain a small dose of local anasthetic – making collagen injections one of the most comfortable and painless cosmetic proceures available.
Laser skin resurfacing with a carbon dioxide laser is a fast, precise, and customizable way to remove surface wrinkles around the eyes, lips, and facial skin. Using laser skin resurfacing to enhance the lips removes lines from the upper and lower lips to smooth the mouth and reveal fresh, younger-looking skin. This gives the patient a more youthful appearance as well as preventing lipstick bleeds.
Lip Augmentation with Synthetic Implants
Synthetic lip implants are a more permanent solution to augment and enhance thin lips. By using soft, flexible implants, a cosmetic dermatologist can add volume and fullness to the lips that lasts and offers a natural feel. The procedure is surgical and requires more recovery time than injection treatments, but patients who choose synthetic lip implants find the spectacular results and permanency to be worth it.
