Dear Dr. Anne,
As a forty-something mom of three kids, I'm fairly happy with my looks. But I'll admit ... I'm still a bit envious of other women my age who seem to haw the perfect pout. I've tried lip plumpers but can't seem to get the look I'm wanting. My friends say, "go see Dr. White!" What can you do to help me?

One of the first facial features others notice, both men and women, is the lips. To quote Dr. Arnie Klein, the lip guru, "Men are hot-wired to a women's lips." And who wouldn't want the luscious, pouty lips that are very much in demand right now? Unfortunately,
as we age, our upper lip elongates, our lips become thinner and flatter, the corners of our lips turn down instead of up creating a sad, serious look, we lose shape and definition and develop vertical lines above and below the lip.
Attempts to enhance lip contours and fullness with lipsticks and lip plumpers offer limited results. While there are some very good lip plumping glosses - the best one Clinician's Complex is available in my office - they may not provide the luscious lips you are seeking. Truly effective lip enhancement requires a professional-grade product administered by a trained and experienced cosmetic surgeon, like myself. Since 2003, I've performed over 25,000 Botox and fillers injections.
At Carolina Laser and Cosmetic Center, we offer a variety of fillers that can add fullness and definition to your lips, with an aesthetically pleasing, natural looking result. Four such products are Juvéderm® Ultra, Juvéderm® Volbella (for vertical lipstick lines), Restylane®, and Restylane® Silk. These fillers provide a natural look and feel to correct facial wrinkles and folds and, loss volume of the lips and the lines around them. The injection process takes only about 15 minutes, and results are immediate.
With minimal recovery or downtime, you have a safe, quick, and convenient solution lasting up to 1 year.
So let's get started! Call today to schedule your own personal consultation. so we can get you on the way to that perfect pout you are wanting.
