As we age, collagen and elastin gradually disappear and our skin loses moisture and native hyaluronic acid. These injections can turn back time by filling deep lines and replacing lost volume that occurs, almost like reinflating a balloon. Dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. The hyaluronic acid gels of different consistencies within fillers can be used to diminish facial lines as well as lift and shape cheeks, jawlines and lips.
Hyaluronic Acid Filler Lip Injections
Dr. Coale has extensive experience with several families of hyaluronic acid fillers, specifically tailored to providing you with the natural, but enhanced lips you desire. Dr. Coale’s consultation will help you achieve a plan for the shape and size that you are looking for, and also will give you information given her experience to help you choose the best filler for you lips and shape desired.
Lip Plump or Touch Up
This treatment is designed for someone who wants to refresh lips that have lost volume due to aging or for someone who has achieved the desired lip volume and shape previously, but needs to do periodic maintenance due to filler metabolism. It can be a first step in lip contouring and is a very subtle “starter” treatment for someone who feels they need enhancement, but not yet ready for it to be too noticeable.
Full Lip Treatment
This more extensive treatment is best for anyone looking to amp up volume and do some shape enhancement to their lips. It is also a good treatment plan for an aging lip that needs some natural volume. Areas to volumize may include lip lines, mouth corners, cupid’s bow and philtral columns.
Full Lip plus Perioral Line Treatment
This lip treatment includes natural volume loss correction, any cupid’s bow or philtral enhancement, and mouth corner bolstering but also softening of the perioral lines.
Dr. Coale treats all areas of the face to maintain or correct facial volume loss due to aging, fast metabolism or if you desire a more dramatic aesthetic look. Some of the areas she offers include temples, tear troughs, cheeks, jaw contouring, nasolabial folds and small wrinkles, ear lobes, etc. We also treat hands and do minor treatments for the nose. We love both Juvederm and Restylane fillers and discuss the options before treatment.
