hey it’s Dominique well from Well

0:00:03.480,0:00:07.730
medical arts and today we are going to

0:00:05.430,0:00:10.469
teach you about the anatomy of the lip

0:00:07.730,0:00:12.509
Allegan the makers of Juvederm has

0:00:10.469,0:00:15.450
confirmed that the lips are the number

0:00:12.509,0:00:17.190
two things people request so we wanted

0:00:15.450,0:00:19.770
to get out and really educate people

0:00:17.190,0:00:22.340
about the lips and what areas can be

0:00:19.770,0:00:25.470
done so take a look at our beautiful

0:00:22.340,0:00:27.779
patient care coordinator and talented

0:00:25.470,0:00:30.420
thank you and look at the beautiful

0:00:27.779,0:00:32.550
smile on one so I wanted to show you all

0:00:30.420,0:00:35.399
of the different areas started with what

0:00:32.550,0:00:38.610
we call perioral and that means around

0:00:35.399,0:00:41.210
the lip so some people will have these

0:00:38.610,0:00:43.860
little fine lines around the mouth

0:00:41.210,0:00:46.350
people call them little lipstick lines

0:00:43.860,0:00:48.620
yay Leslie doesn’t have it yet

0:00:46.350,0:00:51.090
but make a little pucker for me so

0:00:48.620,0:00:53.250
eventually these might start to show up

0:00:51.090,0:00:55.289
will prevent that from happening for you

0:00:53.250,0:00:58.050
we actually can prevent that from

0:00:55.289,0:01:01.920
happening by using a tiny bit of Botox

0:00:58.050,0:01:04.350
right to the upper lip the lip muscle

0:01:01.920,0:01:06.390
goes all the way around the mouth it’s

0:01:04.350,0:01:08.580
called the ortus and it’s a circle and

0:01:06.390,0:01:11.189
it tightens and puckers so when we put

0:01:08.580,0:01:13.380
that little bit to the upper lip that’s

0:01:11.189,0:01:16.320
called the lip flip and that will just

0:01:13.380,0:01:18.270
make it look turn up tiny bit very very

0:01:16.320,0:01:20.880
sweet nobody will notice you can also

0:01:18.270,0:01:23.310
put a couple of units of the Botox to

0:01:20.880,0:01:25.680
the bottom lip make it pop out just a

0:01:23.310,0:01:28.850
little bit and then this muscle down

0:01:25.680,0:01:31.500
here makes these marionette lines and

0:01:28.850,0:01:32.579
that muscle is called the DAO the

0:01:31.500,0:01:35.430
depressor angular’s

0:01:32.579,0:01:37.950
or so you can put a little bit to the

0:01:35.430,0:01:40.049
corners of the mouth to make it turn up

0:01:37.950,0:01:42.390
sweetly and then show me your butt cheek

0:01:40.049,0:01:44.490
like this see these pockets down at the

0:01:42.390,0:01:46.500
bottom you can put four to five units

0:01:44.490,0:01:47.040
down with the pockets at the bottom now

0:01:46.500,0:01:48.630
relax

0:01:47.040,0:01:50.490
this muscles the depressor it’s the

0:01:48.630,0:01:53.159
strongest depressor in the lower face it

0:01:50.490,0:01:55.740
pulls down and so when we relax it it

0:01:53.159,0:01:58.200
does the opposite and lifts up the other

0:01:55.740,0:02:00.450
thing that we can do around the mouth is

0:01:58.200,0:02:02.759
just a couple of units into the

0:02:00.450,0:02:05.100
nasolabial fold so they don’t get any

0:02:02.759,0:02:07.590
deeper and then see how she is just tiny

0:02:05.100,0:02:09.959
bit of chin dimple you can also do just

0:02:07.590,0:02:11.430
a few units into the chin so and that

0:02:09.959,0:02:14.520
will smooth up a little bit of dimpling

0:02:11.430,0:02:17.070
so all that is what we consider hair

0:02:14.520,0:02:20.340
now regarding the actual structure of

0:02:17.070,0:02:23.130
the lips starting up here there’s two

0:02:20.340,0:02:25.230
little seams and those are called the

0:02:23.130,0:02:27.930
philtrum and then there’s this beautiful

0:02:25.230,0:02:29.670
she is this lovely little teardrop shape

0:02:27.930,0:02:32.640
right inside you always want to keep

0:02:29.670,0:02:34.950
that and on some people as we age the

0:02:32.640,0:02:37.980
space in between the nose and the lip

0:02:34.950,0:02:40.770
lengthens so when we go in and do that

0:02:37.980,0:02:43.350
little bit to the philtrum and make that

0:02:40.770,0:02:45.960
seem a little stronger it will lift up

0:02:43.350,0:02:47.610
the lip also you can put just a tiny bit

0:02:45.960,0:02:49.590
of filler sort of right underneath the

0:02:47.610,0:02:52.380
nose and you can see that would help the

0:02:49.590,0:02:54.510
face or roll up the lip sometimes to

0:02:52.380,0:02:56.550
mingle a nasolabial fold will also help

0:02:54.510,0:02:59.370
a face and roll up the lip a little bit

0:02:56.550,0:03:02.390
so that’s the around the lip structures

0:02:59.370,0:03:05.850
now when you look up close there’s a

0:03:02.390,0:03:07.710
little bit of a white roll all the way

0:03:05.850,0:03:10.320
around the mouth see that little bit of

0:03:07.710,0:03:12.480
glistening white that’s a beautiful

0:03:10.320,0:03:16.860
thing you want that to show that’s where

0:03:12.480,0:03:19.350
we will accentuate this area is called

0:03:16.860,0:03:21.860
the Cupid’s bow so we’ll go in and make

0:03:19.350,0:03:25.470
the same of the Cupid’s bow tighter and

0:03:21.860,0:03:28.080
then we can also go around the red roll

0:03:25.470,0:03:30.360
is called the Vermilion border we can

0:03:28.080,0:03:32.880
also make the seam of the Vermilion

0:03:30.360,0:03:34.950
border for dude a little bit more you

0:03:32.880,0:03:36.690
can do the lips with or without the

0:03:34.950,0:03:39.540
Vermilion border depending on whether

0:03:36.690,0:03:42.300
somebody wants a crisp defined lip or a

0:03:39.540,0:03:44.910
more natural lip to go in and do a more

0:03:42.300,0:03:46.770
natural lip drop the bomb down just a

0:03:44.910,0:03:49.380
tad for me to open the mouth there we go

0:03:46.770,0:03:51.180
we go in and we can do the body what’s

0:03:49.380,0:03:53.070
called the tubercles and sometimes what

0:03:51.180,0:03:55.140
people will call them the pillows you

0:03:53.070,0:03:56.910
can go in and just do a little bit of

0:03:55.140,0:03:59.880
the body and that looks very very

0:03:56.910,0:04:02.850
natural we also do what’s called the wet

0:03:59.880,0:04:05.370
to dry as I pull down on the bottom lip

0:04:02.850,0:04:07.290
you can see there’s a juicy wet part and

0:04:05.370,0:04:09.870
then there’s a dry part that’s called

0:04:07.290,0:04:11.850
the wet to dry border and when you put a

0:04:09.870,0:04:14.640
little bit in that wet to dry border

0:04:11.850,0:04:17.880
same thing getting that to a face to

0:04:14.640,0:04:20.190
rule up again so if we can do as little

0:04:17.880,0:04:22.680
as just cleaning up a little bit of

0:04:20.190,0:04:25.440
perioral around the mouth and not doing

0:04:22.680,0:04:27.210
the lips at all all the way to using all

0:04:25.440,0:04:30.569
the tools that we can too

0:04:27.210,0:04:33.150
make that face really you face and to

0:04:30.569,0:04:36.229
project you have beautiful lips I

0:04:33.150,0:04:36.229
wouldn’t do anything to them
