Lip Enhancements in Toronto
The experienced dermatologists and staff at Kingsway Dermatology & Cosmetic Centre provide Toronto and surrounding areas with medical and cosmetic dermatology services to help you look and feel your best, no matter how common or uncommon your skin care or aesthetic concerns.
Like the rest of our skin, our lips are not immune to signs of aging. Volume loss in the lip area is common as the years go on — but whether your thin lips are a result of aging or a genetic disposition, we offer lip enhancement treatments for a fuller, plumper look.
Why Lip Enhancements?
Along with the usual culprits, like sun exposure and smoking, the repeated motions of eating and drinking can lead to thinner lips over time, if they weren’t thin to begin with due to hereditary factors. You may also feel that your lips are uneven or wish for them to be smoother or more defined.
Lip fillers have become increasingly popular over the years. At Kingsway, our first step is to discuss your expectations: whether you’re seeking to augment thin lips for a fuller profile, enhance the peaks and borders of your lips, or add lost volume, will determine what your treatment plan will look like. Many of our patients seek a natural restorative approach, and our expert injectors will always take your goals into consideration.
Our Lip Enhancement Treatments
Our lip enhancement treatments include:
The majority of the dermal fillers we use are made with hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in our bodies. Many HA fillers are formulated specifically to restore volume in the lips and mouth area and will also stimulate collagen production, making for more effective results.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma uses collagen-stimulating platelets derived from the patient’s own blood cells to augment and add volume to the lips, similar to dermal fillers. However, the fact that the platelets are derived from the patient’s own body makes it a natural alternative to fillers.
