As we age, most of us lose some volume in our lips. The best way to restore that is with Hyaluronic fillers such as Juvederm. You can get excellent results with a Juvederm injection in lips resulting in fuller, youthful lips. ($500 for a single treatment.)
If this will not work for you, try using an illuminating lip gloss that does not contain irritants such as capsaicin. The light reflecting gloss will create the illusion of fuller luscious lips.
Many of you have had successful laser hair removal with us, and it is wonderful to not have to pull out that razor or endure waxing treatments. However, if you are still waxing, let us suggest that you use a soothing post- treatment lotion to reduce inflammation and reduce the chance of forming bumps and ingrown hairs (a common problem with waxing treatments - especially in the bikini area). A lotion containing some of the following ingredients will help soothe irritated and inflamed skin:
- Almond Oil
- Aloe Vera
- Cucumber extract
- Tea Tree oil
- Aloe Vera
- Willow Bark Extract
Chronic inflammation is one of the major causes of aging and damaged looking skin. People who have "sensitive skin" due to rosacea, eczema or environmental factors should avoid some common skin procedures.
They should avoid products with dyes, heavy fragrance and pit based scrubs - all of these can further irritate the skin.
Procedures to avoid: chemical peels, microdermabrasion, facials with a hot steaming session.
