Is there an "Ideal Lip"?

Everyone’s facial structure is different-and so is everyone’s ideal lip shape and size.  Restylane is helping redefine lip enhancement, with a customized treatment that follows well-accepted aesthetic guidelines.  Used in this way, Restylane can help you achieve your own “Ideal Lip.”

The Divine Proportion-a vision of beauty

For centuries, artists have used the Divine Proportion to create harmony and balance. For lips, it translates into a guideline that the upper lip should be about 40% of the total height of the lips, and the bottom lip should be about 60%.

Side –to-side symmetry

From one side to the other, the lips should be symmetrical for a pleasing appearance.

Fullness in the center

Lips look most beautiful when the fullness in the center tapers off at the corners.

A well defined Cupid’s bow

The Cupid’s bow is most attractive when it is well defined, serving the focal point of the upper lip.

Projection on profile

When viewed from the side, the upper lip should project slightly beyond the lower lip.

Lips-to-eyes relationship

A line drawn upward from the corners of the lips should hit the center of the pupils of the eyes.
