What procedure can I have to enhance my philtrum a bit? (photos)
Doctor Answers 12
Your philtrum can be augmented with a filler such as Juvederm or Restylane. The philtrum is formed by circular muscles that surround your lips and criss-cross under your nose, giving you the ridges which we call the philtral columns. These columns can be more defined or augmented by the filler. Make sure you seek out a practitioner who has experience with lip injection and understands lip anatomy and function.Good luck.

Hello! Thank you for your question and for sharing your pictures! This is a simple thing to do with a small amount of filler such as Juvederm Ultra Plus. It takes about 15-20 minutes and lasts 9 months to a year - and I have had this same procedure done in my own lips and love the result! A word of warning - it will only take about 1/3rd to 1/2 of a syringe to do this work, so think ahead about where you would like the other half of the syringe to be placed.(Filler is sold in pre-loaded syringes which are sterile and cannot be shared among people - so when you buy a syringe you will be paying for the whole thing regardless of how much you use.) I hope this helps, and good luck!

Lip Philtrum Enhancement
Lip philtrum with outward projection is a sign of youth and fertility. This feature flattens with age as a result of decrease in estrogen levels in women. Lip philtrum enhancement can be achieved in a short in office treatment with HA injection. Having said that this is an easy treatment, I should emphasize that this is not a treatment to be trusted to a novice injector. An experienced injector knows the pitfalls to avoid so that you don't go from boring to unnatural and unattractive.
Start with temp fillers then switch to permanent implants for that pretty Paris lip look.
