Safe options for natural-looking lip enhancement in Westlake Village CA
There are many ways that your lips can give away your “age.” The structural components in our tissues, which contribute to the volume, smoothness, and softness of your pout and the region around it, degrade naturally over time. Environmental and lifestyle factors, from tanning to smoking, can hasten the process of aging, causing your lips to look prematurely “old” and withered.

Injectable treatments for a perfect pout
Dermal or soft tissue fillers are an entire category of products that can be used to correct a wide range of age-related concerns, from loss of volume in the cheek area to soften lines around the mouth, to enlarging and defining the lips. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers are among the most popular types of products because they are formulated with a substance that is present in your skin naturally. HA is a lubricant that is well-concentrated in the fluids of your eyes and joints. Hyaluronic Acid is valued for its super-hydrating qualities; it’s known to hold up to 1,000-times its weight in moisture.
When administered by skilled and licensed professionals and aestheticians, HA-based fillers smooth lines and wrinkles, and boost contours safely and in a way that produces a natural appearance. The last thing you want is to look like you’ve “had work done.” Skin specialists’ skill and experience show in their ability to determine the best places to inject the dermal filler product, and in the number of injections, as well as the “dose” or amount of product required to get each patient’s desired improvement. Your health is also in good hands, as expert administration of the product minimizes the risks of complications, such as the migration of the filler to other areas of the face outside of the injection site.
There are many types of fillers and types of products and treatments that are available at our skin care center. Call 805-379-DERM (3376) to schedule an appointment and find out what product, or a mix of treatments, is best for you.
