Non-Surgical Lip & Mouth Rejuvenation
The aging process around the mouth and lips is attributed to the 4 Ds of Aging
Deterioration: fine lines, age spots, texture
Deflation: volume loss
Descent: skin laxity
Dynamic discord: excess muscle movement of personality & behavioral patterns
There are several factors that contribute to facial aging around the mouth and lips including hereditary, environmental (sun,smoking), weight fluctuations, aging process, personality and behavioral type.
The personality and behavioral type affecting which facial expression muscles are used, to what degree and how often will play a key role on how our faces will age. A wide spectrum of personality types such as “smilers”, “frowners”, “worriers” or “talkers” will create unwanted wrinkles, folds and loss of volume around the mouth, eyes, cheeks and forehead. There is a variety of behaviors such as straw sucking, smoking or gum chewing that will create unwanted wrinkles, folds and volume loss around the mouth.
There are many different injectables and nonsurgical devices designed to treat aging around the mouth and lips either individually or in combination depending upon the patient’s specific concern, anatomy and goals.
Neurotoxins such as Botox, Dysport and Jeuveau will help counteract the dynamic discord and descent of facial aging around the mouth and lips.
Fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, Versa and Radiesse will help counteract the deflation and dynamic discord of facial aging around the mouth and lips.
Biostimulatory injectables such as Sculptra and hyper diluted Radiesse will help counteract descent, deflation, deterioration and dynamic discord of facial aging around the mouth and lips.
Minimally invasive procedures such as fractional CO2 laser, Morpheus, Vivace/Virtue, Subnovii plasma pen and deep chemical peels will help treat deterioration (fine lines, texture) of facial aging around the mouth and lips.
Barbed threads (Eurothreads) are minimally invasive devices that will treat descent and dynamic discord of facial aging around the mouth and lips.
Accutite, FaceTite and Morpheus are minimally invasive devices using radio frequency on top and through as well as below the skin surface to treat descent (sagging skin) of facial aging around the mouth and lips.
Upper lip lift is an office based surgical procedure under local anesthesia designed to treat the (sagging stretched out skin) around the mouth and lift a sagging longer upper lip and create a youthful balanced appearance around the mouth.
I am beyond happy that I had the opportunity to get my lips done by Dr.Chang
He is very thoughtful and asked all the questions possible to understand what my expectations are and what my concerns about my lips were. He did such a great job!
I LOVE my lips.
