Over the years, the lips and nasal philtrum (ridge area between the nose and lips) tend to flatten out and lose youthful definition. Even individuals who do not want plump, voluptuous lips can make subtle, yet definitive changes in their appearance by adding definition to the ridges of the lips and nasal philtrum.
To regain definition, we will generally place dermal fillers into the vermilion borders of the lips and perhaps into the ridges of the nasal philtrum. (The vermilion border is the upper ridge of the upper lip and the lower ridge of the lower lip.)
The lips, perhaps more than any other facial feature, are an area where the our skill, experience and artistry comes into play. For instance, it is important that your lips have a sense of balance between the upper and lower lips.
