WHAT IS DERMAL FILLER
Ever look in the mirror and realize you lost your top lip or cheekbones somewhere along the way in life?
While we're born with an abundance of collagen in our skin, the body's production of collagen slows in our mid-to-late 20's and continues to slow down after age 30. From there, the collagen levels in our skin begin to drop by 1-2% each year.
Because of this, our everyday activities like laughing, expressing, kissing, using straws, and even pursing my lips contribute to the development of life lines vertically around our mouth, wrinkles & lines. Whether you are wanting to redefine what you once had, plump, lift or reduce lines- taking in consideration your natural anatomy and a realistic goal with a plan, we can get you there!
Dermal filler is made from a soft hyaluronic gel that fills in lines and smoothes out the lips. It is strategically placed based on the desired area of treatment. Once you and your injector have consulted and determined your objectives- they will then recommend which filler to choose to best and most effectively achieve your desired results. Dermal Filler is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid- a sugar that is naturally present in your skin and helps to promote collagen production.
TYPES OF DERMAL FILLER
Restylane Silk/ Restylane Belotera
Juvederm Volbella XC
Great For: Vertical Lines (Lip Augmentation) & Lips
With lip filler we not only can redefine the lip and soften lip/life lines, we can rehydrate and plump them, taking away some years giving you a beautiful canvas.
Refyne is used more to refine the lips and Defyne provides more volume.
Silk is a “Flexible” filler which reduces folds & wrinkles without overfilling. Silk spreads out to provide support and fullness without an overfilled look.
It also improves lines without affecting face movement. It’s made of smaller, smoother particles than those used in other filler products- and is designed specifically to provide a natural-looking result in the treated area.
Botox/ Dysport/Xeomin can also be used in conjunction with filler. It can be used to extend and refresh the life of the lip filler. And if you aren’t particularly ready for lip augmentation, a tiny sprinkling of Botox/Dysport/Xeomin above the top lip to gently flip it up to reveal a bit more of the tissue, may be the right choice for you.
