Kiss and Tell by Dr. Tahl N. Humes of VITAHL {LISTmember} Hollywood has long understood the power of a perfect pouty lip, leaving everyone asking, "What options do I have to obtain that perfect celebrity pout?" Full and pouty lips are associated with youth, beauty and sensuality. With Valentine's Day around the corner, many want to have those beautiful, kissable lips without the pain and tingling of a lip plumper. If you are looking to enhance the size and shape of your lips, there are many options that will leave you feeling plumped, soft, sensual and naturally stunning. The ideal lip has a defined border, and the upper lip is smaller than the lower lip. As we age, collagen and fat start to disappear and the lip border breaks down, revealing a less youthful pout. Many different approaches have been introduced to the market for patients searching for that full sensual lip they may have once had or have always wished for. Though lip liner can accentuate the lip size to a certain extent, only so much can be "drawn on." When filling the lip, it is important to keep a natural look by enhancing the border of the lip while keeping the upper lip approximately 75% as full as the lower lip. Anything larger and you can obtain the "ducky look." You also want to be careful not to over-treat lip wrinkles above the lip, because again, this can result in a less natural and more "ducky" look. At VITAHL, we are known for our advanced injection techniques that keep your lips looking natural and like your best you. We can achieve this with fillers or a combination of treatments to best meet your goals. Juvederm: Popular for instantly plumping lips, Juvederm restores volume and fullness. This smooth gel filler is made of hyaluronic acid which is naturally found in the body, hydrating and adding volume to areas injected. Botox: Small doses of Botox can be used to evert the lips. When injected into certain parts of the lip muscle, the selective weakening makes the lips roll out to some extent. This leaves you with the appearance of fuller lips. Combining Botox and Juvederm in the lips maximizes the longevity of the Juvederm treatment. Laser Genesis: A favorite treatment of Hollywood A-listers, this fabulous laser treatment will not only get you red carpet ready, but it can leave your pout looking more plumped. A secret tip - Laser Genesis stimulates collagen in the lips as well as in the skin. Fat Transfer: For a longer lasting option to achieve that perfect pout, many are turning to fat transfer. This procedure involves transferring your own fat to your lips in order to enhance the appearance. Although this is a more expensive alternative than other lip plumping options, it does last longer and uses your own fat.
