With non-surgical cosmetic treatments on the rise, especially with patients who are too busy for prolonged recovery, there are remarkable options available today – injectable fillers can be used for anti-aging treatments and lip enhancement. This ability to kill two birds with one stone can make addressing cosmetic concerns more convenient and stress-free. Here are a couple of products that provide more than one benefit when addressing facial aging and thin lips.
This hyaluronic acid filler uses a naturally occurring substance to help plump up the skin by increasing hydration to underlying tissue. The injectable treatment effectively smooths wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth and plumps up the lips.
The lines around the mouth and the lips, like other parts of the face, show increasing signs of aging the older we get. Aging may include an increase in vertical lines and lost shape above the lips (smokers’ lines), and thin, flat lips. Restylane Silk is an excellent anti-aging treatment designed to deliver results in these areas with smaller, smoother hyaluronic particles than in most other fillers.
Another leading dermal filler for anti-aging treatments and lip enhancement is Radiesse. This volumizing filler is different than most injectables delivering immediate results to wrinkles and fine lines. It uses microspheres (tiny non-allergenic calcium beads in a water-based gel). It is an affordable and time-effective product that offers immediate results and, with proper care, minimal downtime. It delivers supple, fuller lips and is suitable for patients who need help with the appearance of deep facial creases that run from the corners of the mouth to the nose. It also continually fights the signs of aging by triggering collagen production, improving the underlying support structure of your skin.
