As you age certain factors including genetics and changes in body composition can leave you with gradually thinning lips. These changes might also develop along with fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Some individuals with noticeably thin lips feel self-conscious about their physical appearance.
Here at the Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center located in New Rochelle, New York, Dr. Julie Kupersmith M.D., P.C, offers a variety of treatments to help restore or improve the volume of your lips. The option that is right for you will be based on a variety of factors as well as your personal preference.
Injectable dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid which has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. The number of injections can vary depending on your goals.
The dermal filler will temporarily increase the volume and shape of your lips. The treatment process can also help eliminate bumps and other visible surface aberrations.
Hyaluronic acid has a reputation for causing less bruising than other dermal filler agents. It also less likely to cause an allergic reaction, as this type of dermal filler is made from substances that are already present in the human body.
If you are in the New Rochelle, New York, area and you are unhappy with the appearance of your lips, we invite you to call 914-235-5171 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kupersmith and the staff at the Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center.
