WELCOME TO LIP AUGMENTATION

Full, shapely lips are a feature of youth and beauty. The lips (and eyes) are often the first features noticed on meeting someone new. A full, hydrated lip may impart a sexy, healthy, alluring look whereas thin, dry lips may suggest fragility and mature age.
Lip Augmentation by Dr Keith is the injection of a safe dermal filler into the lip to increase its size or change its shape. It is becoming very popular with people in their 20-30s to enhance beauty. It is also used in older people to restore the size and shape lost with age.
Our lips reach their natural fullness in our teens. As we age there is a gradual loss of volume. Factors such as smoking, gravity and UV exposure hastens the deterioration.
In our 20s & 30s the changes may not be that noticeable. By our 40s and 50s the red lip becomes thinner with less red colour visible. The upper white lip becomes longer with less projection. The Cupid’s bow and philtral ridges become flattened. The lip borders become less defined and may become wrinkly. The corners of the mouth start to turn down. Lines may start to appear radiating out from the mouth (called smoker’s lines). The nasolabial and marionette lines become deeper.
Luckily the above changes can all be improved with lip augmentation.
Muscle Relaxant (anti-wrinkle) Injections
Noosa is no place to frown. Remove your frown lines with a few simple injections. Muscle relaxants also smooth out crow’s feet and forehead lines.
Some wrinkles are formed from volume loss. These lines are best treated by replacing the lost volume with dermal fillers. These are a natural sugary substance that is normally found in skin. Dermal fillers are gradually broken down by the body. If necessary they can also be removed by the injection of a reversal agent. Most popular sites are the nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines), marionette lines (mouth to jaw lines), cheeks and jowls.
