As with other regions of your face, your lips will eventually show signs of aging. They may become thinner, tiny lines may appear, and the upper lip may flatten a bit, causing it to hang over your teeth. If you would like to reverse these signs of aging, or if you simply would like to plump up lips which have always been a bit thin, then you may be an excellent candidate for lip injections.

During your procedure, our Denver aestheticians will use dermal fillers to add volume to your lips and create a more attractive appearance. In order to ensure that your lip injections improve your overall facial harmony, our aestheticians will adhere to the following guidelines when determining the right lip size:

  • The top lip should protrude out slightly farther than the lower lip in order to create an attractive pout. Great care will be taken to ensure the top lip protrudes the right amount since too much protrusion may create the appearance of an overbite, while too little may create the appearance of an underbite.
  • The lower lip should be approximately 75% larger than the upper lip.
  • Your lip injections should create well-defined borders between the upper and lower lips.
  • A small amount of your upper teeth should show through after your lip injections are complete.
