Plump Your Pout

There are many make-up tricks to enhance the fullness of your lips temporarily, but a growing number of women are choosing a longer-lasting option. In fact, injectables for fine lines, wrinkles, and lips increased by over 20% last year. One theory for the increase in lip enhancement injections is that these
procedures are safer than ever.

Mark Crawford, MD, facial cosmetic specialist and Medical Director of the Aesthetic Center in The Eye Clinic, says that cosmetic fillers have come a long way in recent years. "Our options for lip injections today are safer, longer-lasting, and provide a much more natural-looking result.”

He explains that as we age, our lips lose collagen and fat just like the rest of our skin, and environmental factors such as sun exposure, repeated sipping, pursing and smoking add to the problem. "Today, it is possible to restore plump, more youthful lips with the newest advances in cosmetic injections, making lip plumping one of the most popular facial cosmetic treatments.”

Dr. Crawford says his clients typically come in unhappy with thin lips, and creases around the lips. Some women experience difficulty placing lipstick or keeping it on the lip without it seeping into adjacent creases. "The goal with lip injections is not just about making lips bigger, but rather creating
balance and proportion to the upper and lower lip,” says Dr. Crawford. "As people get older, they tend to lose definition in the lips, especially at the cupid’s bow at the center of the upper lip and lip border. Lip injections add volume where it’s this loss of definition is most apparent. We can work to define the cupid’s bow and lip line and smooth the skin around the lips. In addition, we can give the corners of the mouth a lift to help restore a younger looking appearance.”

Dr. Crawford says one of the things women like most about injection treatment is the short time
commitment and quick results, with minimal, if any, side effects. Injections take less than half an
hour, including the deadening time, and results are usually visible within 24 hours.
