Lips are among the most prominent and expressive features on the face, and many people want them to be fuller and more sensual so they can look their best. At Ageless Impressions – Plastic Surgery Institute, Dr. Mark E. Richards offers several options to give his patients’ lips a boost. The results of our board certified plastic surgeon‘s chosen methods tend to last longer than those of the older collagen injection products and give his patients better returns on their investments.
The more easily performed of the two treatment options makes use of products like Restylane® or JUVÉDERM®.These injectable methods of lip enhancement use a natural substance called hyaluronic acid that has been purified to ensure that the body’s immune system does not reject it. Both have the added benefit of stimulating natural production of collagen in the area where they are inserted, thus prolonging the life of the treatment. Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® treatments take very short periods of time, and the patient can leave immediately afterwards with only very minor discomfort.
The second lip enhancement method employed by Dr. Richards is known as AlloDerm®. This product comes in the form of small sheets of collagen that can be inserted into the lips via small incisions. While it is slightly more invasive than Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® and requires a two-week recovery period, AlloDerm® has the advantage of lasting longer.
