Redefine Your Lips and Enhance Smile Beauty
Your mouth frames about one-third of your face, therefore variations in the shape, size, volume and tone of your lips has an impact on your overall appearance. A pair of well-defined, full lips generally provide a more youthful, rejuvenated, and attractive look. According to a 2020 annual report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 2.6 million people received hyaluronic acid, the soft tissue filler commonly used for lips, although the report didn’t break down how many of these procedures were specifically for lips. At FaceLipsTeeth (FLT), Dr. Mike Elvis Calderón has vast expertise creating and placing state-of-the-art dental implants, giving him extensive knowledge of facial anatomy and aesthetics. Leveraging the eye of an artist with decades of clinical expertise, Dr. Calderón loves enhancing patients’ radiant smiles with lips fillers in West Islip and Oceanside, NY.
Unhappy with a Less Than Perfect Pout?
Everyone has some asymmetry in their lips, even if it is subtle. Others have scars that affect the natural beauty and shape of their lips. Fine lines around the mouth are a common side effect of aging that results from a dynamic imbalance between muscle thickening and years of activity and skin thinning. It’s an undeniable fact that the double curve of the upper lip known as Cupid’s bow is essential to a perfect pout and sexy lips. A heavily-defined Cupid’s bow is widely considered the most desirable type of lip in the world. Likewise, a defined vermillion border plays an important role in lip aesthetics, which is why lipstick in some form has been used since the beginning of time to enhance this! The corners of your lips (oral commissures) are prone to loss of fat, while tightening of muscles between your jawbone and lips leads to marionette lines (laugh lines). Last, the two parallel lines (philtral columns) that extend from the middle of your nose to the Cupid’s bow can gradually flatten and/or disappear, leading to a loss of definition, shape, and contour of the all-important Cupid’s bow.
Beautify Your Lips
Today, people of all ages desire sexier lips, and while women are the primary recipients of lip augmentation, men also get fillers and other lip treatments. Although most people are candidates for these procedures, it’s crucial to select a clinician like Dr. Calderón that has advanced training and a proven track record performing these techniques. Issues including overfilled lips are most often attributed to a lack of experience.
Veneers in West Islip and Oceanside, NY. are thin shells of porcelain that cover just the front portion of the teeth that show when you smile. Once your teeth have been modified (a small portion of enamel removed), veneers will fit naturally and restore proper size, shape, and alignment. With minimal maintenance and maximum longevity, veneers are a beneficial and hassle-free choice for renewing your smile.
Juvéderm is a popular injectable dermal filler with hyaluronic acid made for different facial and lip applications. Two volumizing gels made exclusively for injection into the lips and perioral area in adults aged 21 and older are currently available. JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC injectable gel is used for lip augmentation and correction of perioral lines, while JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC injectable gel is intended for augmentation of the lips and perioral area. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body, with high concentrations in soft connective tissues and fluid surrounding the eyes. Lesser amounts occur in cartilage and joint fluids, as well as skin tissue. Lip fillers typically take as little to fifteen minutes to an hour. Multiple studies have concluded that hyaluronic acid is a safe and effective dermal filler for adults with minimal side effects when administered by a trained and skilled clinician like Dr. Calderón.
