Cosmetic injectable fillers are known to have an immediate effect on the face and lips when used properly. These are considered a non-surgical alternative to rejuvenate and improve the face’s aesthetic look. These injections can smooth wrinkles and reduce the appearance of scars as well.
Sculptra and Radiesse can be used as dermal fillers for the lips and face for a longer-lasting effect compared to other injections. Radiesse is typically used to reduce deep wrinkle lines and folds of the skin. Sculptra can provide a plumping effect due to scarring or major damage to the dermis layer from an accident. Sculptra is a deep injection. Synthetic injections provide long-lasting effects that can dramatically improve the face. However, they may also increase the risk of side-effects such as bruising and swelling.
Collagen is one of the oldest wrinkle fillers on the market and it works by creating a natural look in smoothing out wrinkle lines. Patients that have collagen treatments often see incredibly natural looking skin and lip smoothness. Collagen may require repeated applications due to the natural breakdown on the material in a short period of time, which is usually months. Allergic testing will also need to be done due to the higher rate of reactions.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Juvederm and Restylane are the common acid wrinkle filler products that provide lasting effects. Juvederm may last for up to 12 months and Restylane can provide roughly 6 months of coverage. Injections can vary depending on how they interact with the dermis. Reactions are also very rare. Patients are able to receive testing prior to the treatment.
Facial vs. Lip augmentation
A combination of injectable treatments can dramatically change the overall appearance of the face. Lip injections may require more volume to reduce the number of wrinkles. Dermal fillers that target deep lines and folds may be more appropriate for facial features. Most of the synthetic and acid-based dermal fillers have the ability to add contouring and natural enhancement to the face. They also give a substantial lift to heavy tissue areas prone to more muscle activity.
