Do You Know What Your Lips Are Saying?

Face of a beautiful model

Lip shape is determined by heredity. It is also affected by aging. Articles abound with information about what the shape of your lips are saying about you. Truth? Lip shape and size say nothing about your personality. Researchers have found that every culture has preferences regarding lip shape and size when it comes to standards of beauty, but even that can change with the times.

Read Your Lips

Everyone has unique lips. No two people have the same lip prints; in fact, prints from your lips are as unique as your fingerprints.

Lips have three or four outer layers of skin as compared to the 15 or 16 protective layers on the rest of your body. Consequently, lips have a natural pinkish color because the blood vessels show through. They also lack hair follicles, sweat glands and they have very little melanin. This leaves your lips vulnerable to damage from the sun and other environmental stressors.

Aging causes the upper lip to become thinner and longer as the soft tissue in the lips decreases. Lips lose volume and consequently, you may be perceived to look older. Fortunately, you have options.

Turn Up the Volume

If you feel your lips are too thin, you can add volume and plump them up. There are surgical and non-surgical means of achieving the look you desire. Lips can be revitalized with minimally invasive dermal fillers providing effective, though temporary, enhancement.

Products like Juvéderm® or Restylane® fill out your lips and can be used to add balance and symmetry. If you are unsure about the decision to make a permanent change to your lips, this procedure lasts long enough for you to try on the look for several months before making a firm commitment.

Your lips are one of the most prominent features of your face. Keep them looking good by keeping them moisturized and hydrated. Drink plenty of water and use sunscreen. Basic moisturizers such as cocoa butter, aloe vera, coconut oil and vitamin E provide protection and serve as a primer before applying color to your lips.

If you are considering lip enhancement, contact Creative Facial Aesthetics. Schedule a consultation appointment with Michele Rivard, PA or Dr. Khosh for more information about your options.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

Robin M.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

Scott S.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Melodie D.

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
