Lips are one of the most important features of a person’s face, so when patients are unhappy with the way they look, it can have negative effects on their self-esteem. Beverly Hills patients who would like to improve the plumpness and fullness of their lips can get assistance from Dr. Nima. He offers treatments to combat a number of aesthetic lip issues.
What Causes Lip Issues?
A person’s lips can change greatly over time by becoming more wrinkly or losing volume. Many of these changes can be directly attributed to aging. As a person gets older, their lips start to lose collagen, an essential building block that provides substance to the skin. As the lips start to shrivel, wrinkles also become more apparent, especially around the corners of the mouth.
Of course, age isn’t the only factor at play. Other causes of lip issues include:
- Exposure to the sun, which can damage the skin.
- Genetics, as this can make a person predisposed to the effects of aging.
- Smoking, which decreases the health of the skin.
Types of Lip Treatments and Their Benefits
For many Beverly Hills patients, lip treatments are all about restoring balance to their faces by creating the perfect pout. This means the top lip should be just a little smaller than the bottom lip, creating a natural appearance.
The easiest way to do this is with lip augmentation using fillers such as Restylane or Juvéderm. These are injected directly into the lips to provide a boost of plumpness while also smoothing out age-related wrinkles. In addition, patients can also use these treatments to change the shape of the lips to create better proportions.
While these treatments aren’t permanent, they do offer long-lasting results with no downtime. While a patient’s lips may feel strange for the first few days after the injection, eventually they’ll feel just as soft and natural as they did before.
Which Lip Treatment Is Right for Me?
To know which type of filler is recommended for lip augmentation, Beverly Hills patients should schedule a consultation with Dr. Nima. He can then take a closer look at their issues and see what option would be most ideal. In some cases, he might recommend additional treatment options to further complement the patient’s new lips.
What Do Lip Treatments Cost?
The cost of lip treatments all depends on how much filler the patient requires. Because this can vary greatly, Dr. Nima only provides an estimate after the initial consultation. At this appointment, he can plan out the course of treatment and provide a final cost. For patients who need a little help with financing, we do partner with CareCredit.
