Non-Surgical Treatments



Perfect full lips have long been a sign of youth and health. As we age our lips tend to become thinner and loose volume causing a pursed, thinner and unfriendly appearance. Diminution of lips leads to loss of definition of the lip border and a flattened contour. The development of upper and lower lip wrinkles further impair definition of the lip border and ofter cause "bleeding" of lipstick. Other factors such as the normal aging process, sun exposure, genetics, lifestyle (smoking) and pursing of the lips while talking may contribute to more advanced wrinkles and loss of definition of the lip. Many individuals will benefit from treatment leading to enhancement and/or improved definition of the lip.

The abundance of collagen, elastin, and fat the skin has in youth accounts for the flawless smooth look that begins to fade in adulthood. Environmental factors, some controllable, others not (sun exposure, poor diet, smoking, and exaggerated muscle movement), accelerate the process that genetics have set in motion. We now see that static wrinkles are a matter of the skin losing these youthful elements, and this can be remedied with new advanced products such as non-animal based hyaluronic acid fillers.

Dermal fillers are a simple and quick way to refresh your appearance by restoring lost volume and filling in wrinkles and folds, especially those caused by the aging process. Dermal fillers are used to smooth the lines and creases on our faces, and "fill" areas of tissue loss that often occurs with aging. They can also fill deep scars to improve the contour of your face and even fill out your cheeks.

Many of the dermal fillers we use to treat wrinkles are bio-stimulants of the bodys own collagen. Filler are injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle and have a lasting result of up to 8-12 months. Results can be seen immediately and treatment with fillers is safe, fast and leaves no permanent scars or other traces on the face. Fillers add natural volume in your skin to lift and produce new firmness resulting in a healthy & vital appearance.
