1. WHAT IS A LIP LIFT?

Nothing says sexy like thick and luscious lips. As we age our lips thin and our upper lip (area from the bottom of the nose to the red part of the lip) gets longer. Both of these give us the look of aging. The sex appeal of lips has a scientific basis behind it. When women get sexually aroused blood is pumped to the lips and they become red and plump. That is how red lipstick came about. At Visage we can help you get those irresistible lips you have always wanted.
