Optimal Lip Shape is characterized by several properties:
- Phi Golden Ratio proportions between Upper and Lower lip (1.618)
- Accentuated Cupids Bow
- Acute angles at the corners of the lip
- Phi Golden Ratio proportions with the lower third of the face
- More voluptuous lips are seen in younger women
- Ethnic characteristics
Advanced dermal fillers can be used to enhance and re-volumise the lips, help replenish thinning, and work to build up more balanced lips. Although different HA Filler products can be used, several products have characteristics that particularly favour enhancing lips, for a flattering and natural look which lasts (including Voluma, Volbella and Restylane). At The Centre we believe in Natural Rejuvenation, lips need to suit your face and for some patients treatment is also required in the area around your mouth. Lips shrink with age, strengthening the top lip with subtle enhancement can improve the overall appearance of the lower part of the face. There are different types of results to be achieved: lip enhancement and lip rejuvenation (lipstick bleed lines and drooping corners). For some patients you may need to have more than one type of treatment to get the result you are looking for.
At The Centre for some patients, the natural Lip line can be enhanced with Restylane lip filler. Lip augmentation with Vobella (FDA-approved) designed specially to volumise thin lips and minimize the appearance of fine lines around the mouth, also known as perioral rhytids or perioral lines.
Care is required to ensure natural rejuvenation as excessive filler can draw attention to the lips and away from natural beauty of the face. At The Centre we specialise in Natural Looking Results.
