Lip Enhancement will increase the fullness of your upper lip, lower lip, or both. It will not improve problems with lipstick bleed along your wrinkles. If this is your main concern, consider Permanent Make-up or a Wrinkle Treatment. If your lips are full enough but too long or low, then you should consider a Lip Lift, which raises droopy lips.

Best Candidates for Lip Enhancement:
All of us age and unfortunately with time, lips began to appear thin, saggy, and dry. The sagging may cause unevenness in lips making them slightly unattractive. For many years, there was not much that could be done about sagging or thin lips. Today, however, things have changed. Lips can be made beautiful with use of dermal fillers. When these dermal fillers are injected, in just 30 mins, one can have nice, luscious, plump, erotic, and younger looking lips- at least that is how it is supposed to happen.
General Information About Lip Enhancement:
Temporary solutions for lip augmentation are achieved through collagen and fat injections, both requiring repeat treatments to maintain lip augmentation, as the materials are readily absorbed into the body. Collagen used in lip augmentation generally lasts 3-4 months, and while fat injections last slightly longer, a lip augmentation using fat injections can be more unpredictable, resulting in lumping and scarring. Other lip augmentation solutions involve the use of implants, either entirely synthetic materials, or lip augmentation inserts using some amount of donated skin. Unlike the non-surgical, injection based systems of lip augmentation, the inserts require about one week for recovery, and allergies to the lip augmentation inserts have been known to occur. A permanent, low-risk solution for lip augmentation involves the use of Gore-Tex material, which the human body seems to tolerate well, but lip augmentation by these means may not be the best idea for someone who is only experimenting with lip augmentation. Someone in that position may prefer to start out with collagen to see how lip augmentation could affect them.
Typical Recovery Time:
Whether or not an anesthetic is necessary depends on the lip augmentation procedure. Topical anesthesia is generally used before lip injections, so that the procedure is painless. Local anesthesia is normally used during grafts and flaps. The procedure painless during the operation, but may be some discomfort afterward. It takes longer to recover from a surgical procedure than an injection.
