Smile! Lip enhancement is brightening faces in Beverly Hills
Smiling is a universal language that conveys goodwill, trust, humor, and attraction. According to Psychology Today, smiling changes your physiology, activating stress-busting neuropeptides, and releasing the feel-good neurotransmitters dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin. Your smile also spreads joy by stimulating an unconscious automatic response in others. Yet, as we age, it gets harder to wear a natural smile. We tend to look stern or angry as lips fade, get thinner, and droop at the outer corners. Lip enhancement in the hands of Dr. Dennis Dass in Beverly Hills goes beyond augmentation to restore a youthful smile.
Precise changes add up to noticeable improvement
Most people think of lip enhancement as simply filling the lips with a volumizer to make them bigger. A doctor with skill, experience, and natural artistry takes a different approach. Dr. Dass considers the mouth and its symbiosis with the entire face – tooth color, lip shade, skin tone, and facial proportions. Then he designs a lip enhancement strategy to:
- Contour the shape of lips.
- Add fullness.
- Reverse downturned corners.
- Define the vermillion border (the youthful demarcation between lip color and adjacent skin).
- Reduce fine vertical lines that cause lipstick to “bleed.”
Lip enhancement techniques
As a Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Dass has experience in designing individualized lip enhancement protocols. His contemporary plastic surgery center on Wilshire Boulevard is equipped with advanced technologies and staffed with a capable, compassionate support team.
Fine lines around the lips can be minimized with PicoSure™ laser resurfacing. It fosters even skin tone and smooth texture, with three to four treatment sessions and no downtime. Dr. Dass utilizes injectable volumizer such as Juvéderm® to plump and shape lips, and restore definition of the vermillion border. The neuromodulator Botox® can lift corners of the mouth that are pulled down by repeated muscle contractions, or relax the upper lip to address a “gummy” smile. Fat grafts (from your own body), silicone implants, and plastic surgery are also options for longer-term lip enhancement.
There is no one lip enhancement technique that is right for every patient. Call Dennis Dass, M.D. in Beverly Hills at (855) 496-4646 for an individualized lip enhancement plan that is sure to have you smiling beautifully.
