With many cosmetic procedures and age defying technology reaching the forefront of the new age, it is understandable to have a few questions that need to be addressed, especially when it comes to the most popular of them all, cosmetic injections. Here at Allure Medical, we will break down our most commonly asked questions, with the biggest one being, how many units of Botox® do I need?
A lip filler treatment involves injecting a substance to create more volume in the lips. A lip flip treatment involves injecting a neurotoxin such as Botox® to allow the outer muscles to weaken and the inner muscles to turn the lip out slightly. Which one is right for you? Dr. Mok explains the pros and cons of each.
Lip enhancement is a common cosmetic procedure. We can think of lip enhancement in two ways: making the lip fuller and more attractive or restoring lost lip volume due to aging and environmental effects. So, what can go wrong?

Master injector, Dr. Charles Mok goes into great detail about Botox® injection timing and what to watch out for when getting your treatment.
Botox® is a household name, and if you are reading this, you may be familiar with Botox®, or just learning about it. Botox® is a neuromodulator that blocks messages from the nerve to the muscle to lessen the appearance of wrinkles as well as to improve the appearance of your face through lifting things like your eyebrows or corners of your mouth.
The most common thing I hear is “I don’t want to be too big, I have a friend with crazy big lips”. To this I respond, “the crazy big lips are not a direct result of the lip filler, it is from the addiction to lip filler”.

Most women choose to get breast implants with the goal of increasing the size of their breasts.

Many considerations, including body type and personal preference, should be taken into account when determining the right cup size for your body. Your doctor will determine what is best.
