Lip rejuvenation has become a very popular procedure. This procedure is performed with Hyaluronic acid (a substance found naturally in the body and identical to human hyaluronic acid.) It is well tolerated and after a few days is integrated into the body such that it cannot be detected. It further has the advantage of complete reversibility. This lasts approximately 9 to 12 months. It is performed under a local anaesthetic block to the peri- oral region prior to injection of the filler.
Dermabrasion also has a major role in lip rejuvenation in my practice. For details please see Dermabrasion.
