Remove puppet lines %26 nasolabial folds. The lips are a sensitive area of the body, prone to showing signs of early aging. Because full lips are a feature of a youthful face, lip enhancement has become a very popular treatment option. One of the reasons Juvederm is recommended for plumping and defining lips is that it is hydrophilic, meaning it attracts water that can increase its filling action.
There are several reasons why our customers order lip injections. Older women want to have a more youthful appearance, while younger women in their twenties and thirties are simply attracted to the idea of having more sensual and sensual full lips. A popular trend today for lips is the Cupid's bow, which tilts the center of the upper lip in a cheerful position. Vertical lines above the mouth begin to appear due to age and sometimes habits such as smoking or overuse of straws, both activities that force the lips to pucker, can cause lines to form.
While you may notice some residual improvement as a result of lip volume, it is often necessary to fill in the wrinkles themselves. Cracks on both sides of the lips can also be smoothed out with injections. Not all women use fillers for anti-aging or to get bigger lips. There are men and women with naturally uneven mouths who see great results with the addition of Juvederm to balance their smile.
These are the lines that go from both sides of the mouth to the chin, giving a look similar to puppet strings threaded to allow the mouth to open and close. Puppet lines are formed as a result of aging and begin to appear as early as the 1930s. We strategically place the filling inside the folds of the puppet lines, expanding the crack and smoothing the appearance of the lower part of the face. Often confused with puppet lines, nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines, range from the nose to the sides of the mouth.
These wrinkles can appear as a result of a smile (dynamic wrinkles) and remain when the face is at rest. A dermal filler can minimize the appearance of these lines. A popular product, Restylane has been used for more than a decade to successfully treat fine lines and wrinkles and as an effective filler to reduce the appearance of acne scars. A hyaluronic acid-based formula, Restylane is mainly used on nasolabial folds, puppet lines and lips.
Resylane-L is a form of Restylane mixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, for maximum patient comfort. Both Botox and Dysport are mainly used in the glabella lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines and crow's feet. They can also be very effective in raising eyebrows and repositioning lips. If used correctly, Botox and Dysport will leave you looking natural with all your expressions intact instead of freezing and stereotypical expressionless, as can happen when these products are overused or improperly injected.
Did you know that many visible signs of aging can be attributed to volume loss? As the facial tissues thin, the lines are engraved around the nose and mouth and the cheeks look a little hollow. Dermal fillers can replace lost volume to help smooth wrinkles, fill lips, and restore a more youthful appearance. Learn all about injectable filler treatments below. Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected under the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and smooth wrinkles, or improve facial contours.
More than 1 million men and women annually choose this popular facial rejuvenation treatment, which can be a cost-effective way to look younger without surgery or downtime. Autologous fat injections are the only injectable filler treatment that requires surgery, but the results can last for many years. Your own fat is removed from another area (autologous means “from the same person”), usually by liposuction. The fat is then purified and injected into the face to help restore volume to the cheeks, temples, lower eyelids, or other areas.
Fat injections require specialized training to function safely and achieve excellent results, and should only be performed by an experienced, board-certified cosmetic surgeon. When selecting a provider for injectable treatments, give your decision the same level of care and scrutiny as you would for a surgical procedure. Non-surgical filler treatment remains a medical procedure that requires specific training, knowledge and skills to ensure safe treatment and natural-looking results. Choose a provider with extensive knowledge of facial anatomy, a well-developed aesthetic eye, and the skill and precision of the surgeon.
Whoever you choose, make sure your provider has proven experience in aesthetic medicine, as well as substantial training and experience performing filler injections. Ask to see before %26 after patient photos from a potential provider. Or the physician's assistant will perform the injections, that person should work closely together under the supervision of a qualified physician, preferably a board-certified cosmetic surgeon. Dermal filler injections are non-surgical and are usually done during an office visit.
Your initial treatment will begin with a consultation, during which you will meet with your cosmetic surgeon to discuss your concerns and goals. During your consultation, your cosmetic surgeon will assess your area of concern and review your medical history. While the risks associated with dermal fillers are minimal, you should fully disclose your medical history prior to treatment, as certain allergies, skin and neurological conditions, or medications may jeopardize your safety or results. For example, you should tell your cosmetic surgeon if you have been taking NSAIDs (e.g.
Just before the actual treatment, the area will be cleaned and you may be given a topical anesthetic to numb the area before the injection. Many fillers also contain lidocaine, a mild anesthetic that aims to help minimize discomfort during and after treatment. Your provider will then inject a precise amount of filler strategically under the skin. Depending on the product and the areas treated, you should be able to notice the results immediately after receiving the filler injections.
Some patients have mild bruising and swelling, but these are temporary and should go away for days after treatment. You will be able to return to your normal activities immediately after treatment, but the cosmetic surgeon may ask you to take the day off from exercise or other strenuous activity. Facial fat grafting is a surgical procedure and follows a different treatment protocol. Fat grafting is usually performed as an outpatient procedure, with general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation.
Up to 2 weeks of inactivity may be required, depending on the extent of liposuction performed. The cosmetic surgeon will discuss what to expect with surgery and recovery during the consultation. The duration of the effects of dermal fillers depends on the product, the treatment area and the patient. Generally speaking, the denser the product and the deeper it is injected, the longer it will last, although this is not a strict and fast rule.
To maintain results, the cosmetic surgeon will simply repeat the treatment, adjusting the amount and techniques needed to ensure optimal results. Hyaluronic acid fillers tend to be the more temporary option and are therefore often recommended for patients with first-time fillers. They will usually last 6 to 18 months. Injections in the lips will wear out a little faster than those in the nasolabial folds.
Certain HA fillers, such as VOLUMA, are formulated to last longer, but are generally limited to certain areas, such as the cheeks. Synthetic fillers tend to last longer, since they are not absorbed by the body. They can be a great option for the right patient, but you'll want to be ready to commit to the results that will be there for several years and choose a qualified, experienced provider whose aesthetic style you like. Fat injections are meant to last indefinitely; however, it is expected that some of the fat injected will not survive.
Initially, the cosmetic surgeon may overload the treatment area, resulting in an initially fuller appearance that will gradually take on a more natural appearance. With the help of a qualified and experienced provider, injectable fillers can provide natural-looking enhancements to help you feel more confident in your appearance.
