I want my lips done but I'm afraid of having those 'duck' lips I see on everyone. Can it be done so this does not happen?

The strikingly unnatural lip enhancement you’re talking about is everywhere these days and is an unfortunate result of the thinking “If a little of something is good, then a lot of it must be really good”. In many cases, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

The final result depends on the volume of injectable used and the exact placement. This location can be varied to give different looks. Options for enhancement are non-permanent fillers such Restylane and Juvederm, longer-lasting fillers such as Radiesse and Artefill, and permanent implants or procedures.

Hand in hand with lip enhancement goes rejuvenation of the entire surrounding area, including the cheek-lip (nasolabial) folds and lip-chin folds. In the attached photo of a real Profiles patient, you can see how these areas are also enhanced giving the lip a more youthful look by elongating it and restoring an upturned curvature to the corners

Lip Augmentation

Here at Profiles, we tend to encourage and lean towards a very natural lip enhancement that increases volume and definition without looking out of balance with other facial features. Feel free to give us a call to schedule an appointment to discuss your concerns in more detail.

These are 3 of the most popular hyaluronic acid products which, along with collagen, make up the main ‘building blocks’ of your skin. Unlike most collagen products, they are not animal-derived but, rather, are ‘grown’ in the lab, so the risk of an allergic reaction is minimized. Read more
