One of the first signs of aging is thinning and uneven lips. As collagen production nosedives, and sun damage accumulates, our lips very quickly lose the plumpness and fullness of youth to give away our age.Unfortunately, many won’t consider lip treatments because they are so negatively associated with the over-filled look of Hollywood. But rest assured, there are many excellent options for lip restoration without being detectable from across the room! At Halcyon Cosmetic we prefer to think of lips like we do of rejuvenation in general. Treatment should aim to restore what you’ve lost with age to turn the clock back a little, not give you something you never had. Each lip client is assessed individually to determine the factors contributing to your aging lips and a treatment plan is customized to restore your confidence with little, to no, downtime.
As we age, collagen production slows, sun damage accumulates, and our lips begin to lose fat volume. As this loss occurs, it is not always even, contributing to uneven lips.
Dermal filler is a product used to replace the facial and lip volume that is lost with age. Unlike its name, dermal filler does not just “fill”. In fact, most dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid based which is the substance plentiful our eyes and joints to keep them moist. It works by attracting 2000x its weight in water. When used appropriately, by a skilled physician injector, it can be undetectable. For more information view this page.
Botox Cosmetic is a neurotoxin that is injected into specific muscles that contribute to the formation of lines and wrinkles. It acts by stopping the contraction of the muscle. It is commonly used to reduce the strength of the “DAO” muscles, which minimizes a “down-turned” mouth that appears to be always frowning. This can greatly improve the shape of the lips.

Lip colour restoration is the restoration of lip colour with permanent makeup pigment. Lip colour can be applied as a wash of sheer colour or more heavily, similar to lipstick, and is available in a variety of colours. For more information see here.
