So many times, clients ask about the little fine lines around their lips and are annoyed that their lipstick bleeds and many times wondering why and when this happened.

So, why the RAISIN vs the GRAPE? Well, I often times find myself referring to this analogy. In our youthful years I like to think of our lips as full, soft and smooth, or what I refer to as the GRAPE.

It makes perfect sense….. As we chronologically age, our lips lose volume, the border is less defined, and soon after the annoying little lip lines are there. That’s right! Our lips are behaving like a RAISIN!

By delicately infusing a small amount of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler such as JuveDerm Ultra Plus XC or Restylane-L is the key to re-hydrate the RAISIN. Adding back volume and hydration will provide support that will uplift the corners of the mouth resulting in more youthful lips that look naturally fuller with a subtle pout.
