If your pucker isn’t as plump as you’d prefer, the many dermal filler options offered can help you achieve a sexy pout this summer without invasive surgery or an extended downtime! Dermal fillers add extra fullness around the border or inside the lip, and if needed, your dermatologist can utilize BOTOX® Cosmetic to relax the lines around the mouth. In fact, using BOTOX® Cosmetic simultaneously with dermal fillers during lip augmentation actually extends the longevity of your filler results!
There are a variety of dermal fillers depending on your preferences and cosmetic needs Juvederm dermal filler. These dermal fillers include Juvederm®, Restylane®, Perlane®,Radiesse®, and Silicone. In addition to providing a non-surgical method to achieve a plump pout, dermal fillers also provide non-surgical options for other cosmetic procedures, such as the non-surgical chin augmentation, non-surgical rhinoplasty, non-surgical brow lift, and non-surgical smile lift. Here are the difference between the dermal fillers:
Juvederm®: An FDA-approved cosmetic filler made from hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar. Juvéderm® is injected into the mid to deep dermis using an ultra-fine needle. The smooth-consistency gel will help fill in and soften wrinkles, while providing fullness to areas of diminished volume.
Restylane®: An FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler that may be used to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds. Designed to work like your body’s own hyaluronic acid, Restylane® injections can immediately smooth facial wrinkling, while restoring youthful fullness to areas of depleted volume.
Perlane®: Made from non- animal based hyaluronic acid- a natural sugar that helps to give skin a plump, youthful appearance – Perlane® is a cosmetic filler that can be injected into facial tissue to soften wrinkles and provide fullness. Perlane injections mimic the body’s own natural hyaluronic acid. By restoring lost volume under the skin’s surface, Perlane® can help to lift up and smooth out overlying lines, leaving the face looking younger and more refreshed.
Radiesse®: A volumizing facial filler made of tiny calcium-based microspheres, which are similar to minerals found naturally within the body, making it safe and non-allergenic. RADIESSE® injections work to replenish lost volume, fill in facial wrinkles and folds, and encourage the production of natural collagen in the skin during the months following treatment. The results are immediately noticeable and long lasting.
Silicone: Microdroplets of pure, medical-grade liquid silicone are injected strategically across the treatment area. This will encourage the body to produce new, natural collagen around the silicone droplets, leading to fuller, more defined lip structure. The surgeon’s skill and injection technique are key to producing beautiful, natural-looking results.
BOTOX® Cosmetic: As opposed to dermal fillers which plump the skin to smooth wrinkles and create full, sultry lips, BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable which actually affects the wrinkles appearance from under the skin. With age, skin loses its ability to gracefully expand and contract to accommodate facial expressions, causing wrinkles. Botox utilizes the botulinum toxin to blocks the nerves from over-stimulating your facial muscles, thereby relaxing wrinkles. BOTOX® is also often used in combination with dermal fillers to achieve both sexy and more youthful results.
