Full, supple lips are the hallmark of a youthful appearance

The lips are central focus points of the face, and movement of the lips is part of what gives us expression in our interactions with others. Unfortunately, our lips inevitably age along with the rest of our faces. As we age, we lose volume in our lips and the upper lip droops, contributing to a flat or unhappy appearance. An option for reversing this lip fillers in Scottsdale.

What is non-surgical lip augmentation?

Aging of the lips can occur in multiple ways. The philtrum (vertical groove in upper lip) can elongate, leading to an upper lip that is flattened and less perky. Also, the lips themselves can thin as they lose volume. Finally, the corners of the lips can descend, leading to a flat or displeased facial appearance.

For an elongated philtrum, Dr. Starkman uses a minor procedure called a lip lift to lift the upper lip and give the lip an upturned, youthful appearance. For depressed corners of the mouth, a “corner of mouth” lift can be performed to deliver a more engaged and pleased facial appearance. Autologous fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane are options for patients with volume loss in their lips.

How do lip fillers work?

As our bodies age, we lose our supply of natural youth-enhancing compounds such as hyaluronic acid and collagen. These substances are responsible for the skin’s hydration, its resilience, and its supple glow. By reintroducing HA via injectables, our team, led by board certified Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Sidney J. Starkman, is able to effect immediate and remarkable results that reverse the signs of aging and restore confidence. Because our lip fillers trigger the regeneration of collagen, results continue to improve over time, lasting in some cases as long as 12 months.

Most of the fillers we use are formulated with lidocaine to help keep you completely comfortable and stress-free during treatment. Our treatment for lip fillers in Scottsdale use ultra fine needles, so your procedure is virtually painless.
