Upper and lower lip thinning? Milpitas dermatologist offers lip rejuvenation treatment
There are many normal, physical signs of aging, such as greying hair, wrinkles, age spots, and a loss of facial volume. Today, with advances in cosmetic medicine, a multitude of treatment options exist to address aging skin. The lips are an area that tends to be overlooked but that can show age significantly.
Defined vertical lines on the upper lip can be caused by smoking, sun overexposure, and simply repetitive actions such as talking, pursing, and kissing. In addition to the appearance of lines around the mouth, the lips lose their natural plumpness as collagen production diminishes and the corners of the mouth begin to tilt downward.
When it comes to anti-aging lip treatment, many patients may call to mind images of people who have been "over treated" in the lip area resulting in a puffy, unnatural, and unattractive appearance. At Center for Dermatology Cosmetic and Laser Surgery, serving patients from Milpitas, Fremont, San Jose, Pleasanton, Union City, Newark, and nearby neighborhoods, our board certified and experienced physicians treat and understand all aspects of skin. We provide an extensive array of medical, surgical, laser, and cosmetic dermatology and believe that our patients deserve skilled care that leaves them looking like their natural, refreshed, and rejuvenated selves. We don't seek to redesign a patient's face, just to restore healthy volume and radiance.
Our lip rejuvenation treatments include:
- Dermal fillers, such as Belotero, Perlane, Restylane, and Juvéderm, are composed of a protein that occurs naturally within the human body. A prescription medication in the form of a smooth gel, is gently injected into targeted areas to augment and plump the lip, with results lasting up to 18 months.
- Laser technologies
- ProFractional, a leading cosmetic laser produced by Sciton, treats fine lines and wrinkles and stimulates the body's production of collagen to enhance volume lost by normal aging
- Micro Laser Peel exfoliates dead skin cells and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
Our experienced and attentive physicians, Sunil Dhawan, MD, Shurong Chang, MD/PhD, and Robert Roth, MD, have extensive training in all areas of dermatologic medicine. Call us today at 855.717.1755 for a comprehensive and confidential consultation.
