Kissable Lips, Winter 2014 Newsletter

The perfect pout of supple, smooth lips is easier to achieve than ever before. Lip augmentation through the use of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, neurotoxins, and cosmeceutical lip balms can give anyone the kissable lips they’ve always dreamed of.

miniliptreatment_BeforeAfterFirst, hyaluronic acid dermal fillers such as Restylane® and Juvéderm Ultra can be injected into the lips to enhance lip volume and smooth away fine lines. These dermal fillers can also be used to give lips better definition and shape while leaving them looking naturally full. Restylane and Juvéderm® Ultra can be injected into wrinkles around the lips and mouth. This improves the puckering appearance around the mouth which often occurs with aging.

Next, neurotoxins such as BOTOX®, Dysport™ and Xeomin® can be used to rejuvenate the lips. When injected around the border of the upper and lower lips, neurotoxins soften the lines around the mouth and make the lips appear fuller.

If you are not yet ready for procedures to enhance the appearance of your lips, an easy place to start improving your lips is with a cosmeceutical lip balm. Cosmeceutical lip balms are different from traditional lip balms because they contain active ingredients to improve the lip skin. This results in an improvement in fine lines, adds lip volume and softens the texture of the lips. For example, skinfo® Vita Lip Balm ($18) plumps and moisturizes the lips by stimulating collagen production in the lips. It not only minimizes the appearance of current fine lines but also helps to prevent future wrinkles from forming. Another amazing product is SkinMedica® TNS Lip Plump System ($58). This product combines the rejuvenating strength of NouriCel-MD® and collagen filling spheres to instantly increase the volume of the lips and smooth away surface imperfections.

Once you have achieved that perfect pout you’ve been dreaming of, you can show it off by wearing our glo minerals Suede Matte Crayon in Demure ($16).
