CandyLipz Teen FaceLips. They shape a third of your face. They define your youth, beauty, health, and even sexuality. The length of the philtrum is defined as the distance under your nose and the lowest point of the mid Cupid’s bow. The ideal philtrum range for females is 11-13 mm and 13-15 mm for males. Some surgeons determine the perfect philtrum length by using the width of your iris.

One of the major indicators which gives away your age is the lengthening of your philtrum. Males have longer philtrum than females by at least 2 mm. For every decade after the age of 18, both male and female upper lips lengthen on average  by 0.5 mm. By the time you reach the age of 60, your philtrum droops on average by 3.5  mm in length for females and 5 mm for males.

There are four surgical procedures to help shorten the philtrum and two procedures may leave permanent scars where the incisions are made. Most people are frightened at the thought that if something goes wrong with the procedure, they will be left with a huge visible scar on the face! If surgical procedures are not your cup of tea, there is a 100% natural method for you to shorten your philtrum instantly. Read on and you will discover various methods available today.

2. Lip Lift Surgery (Bull’s Horn): This is a technique where the incisions are made under your nose. For some people, the scarring is unacceptable but it may make you look 5 years younger.  The average costs of  a lip lift is $3,000. Possible complications are asymmetry and hypertrophic scarring.




3. Lip Advancement Surgery:  If you have very thin upper lip,  a small strip of skin along the curve of the Cupid’s bow can be removed to shorten the philtrum and it also enhances the definition of the Cupid’s bow. The cost for lip advancement surgery runs around $2,000. Complications with this lip advancement surgery are asymmetry and hypertrophic scarring.


4. The Cupid’s Bow Surgery:  This is a procedure where three v-shaped incisions are made on the inside of the upper lip. The incisions are then stitched together and the flaps are pushed forward to create a more defined Cupid’s Bow and a fuller upper lip.  This procedure will not leave visible scar on your face.  The  average costs for this procedure may run  between $1,000 to $2,000.



4. Lip Lift Suspension: In this procedure, a single suture is used to elevate the upper lip- in other words- a thread is used to tighten and anchor the tissue in place.  This procedure leaves no scar and it is reversible if you are unhappy with the result. In a clinical study of 92 patients, 85% of the people observed shortening of their upper lips. The cost runs around $2,000 to $3,000.


5. Non-Surgical Lip Lift Using Ultrasound: Using this method, the ultrasound energy is used to tighten the skin without surgery or injections- in other words- heat is used to denature your collagen so it shrinks. There is no downtime following the quick procedure and the optimal results are seen within 3-6 months. This procedure produces very minor skin shrinkage for your upper lip and mouth areas. The average cost for the lips can range from $500 to $1,000 and over $4,000 for the entire face. You will need to do frequent touch ups to maintain your look.
