Full, luscious lips are a sign of femininity and youth. Studies of facial attraction have shown that a woman's lips are one of the first things that both men and women notice when deciding whether a face is attractive enough or not. Unfortunately, not all women are lucky enough to have full, feminine lips. Other times, lips can shrink with age or weight loss. Lip augmentation can improve the size of lips that are too thin or flat.
There are many options for lip augmentation offered by JUVA Skin & Laser Center. The right option for you depends on many factors that can only truly be assessed during a personal consultation. We invite you to call us at (212) 688-5882 today to schedule your consultation.

Since the earliest recorded history, full lips have been recorded as an attractive feature for a woman, and lip makeup is listed among the Egyptians' cosmetic pallet. Cosmetic lip enhancement is common to most cultures around the world.
Lip Augmentation Options
Nonsurgical lip augmentation is the most common lip augmentation technique. This technique involves the use of injectable fillers to increase the volume of lips. We recommend hyaluronic acid fillers for lip augmentation including:
Hyaluronic acid fillers give smooth, natural-looking results for lip augmentation, although the duration of results is shorter in the lips than when used elsewhere in the face, generally lasting less than three months.
There are also surgical lip augmentation options, but because non-surgical lip augmentation works so well, many people do not find these to offer a good tradeoff. We can discuss these options during your consultation.
