One concern many people have is the appearance of wrinkles or loose skin around the mouth, or lips that appear otherwise aged.
One thing that we can do for these individuals is a procedure called lip dermabrasion. In general terms, dermabrasion is a procedure wherein a targeted area of skin is gently resurfaced for cosmetic effect. During this resurfacing the top layer of skin is removed which encourages the body to re-heal and create new skin to replace the removed layer. This procedure can be used to treat areas such as lips and mouth that may heavily wrinkled, scarred or discolored.
