Full lips are a sign of youth and health, but not all of us are blessed with Angelina Jolie’s genes. Fortunately, lip fillers can be used to eliminate wrinkles, add volume, and rejuvenate the lips. Over the years, they have been growing in popularity among not only celebrities, but everyone who wants fuller, brighter lips. It is essential, however, to make sure that the material being used for the filler is free of any carcinogenic or substances that would provoke an allergic reaction. The consistency of the applied tissue and its durability also play an important role in giving you the results you want. Nowadays, temporary fillers containing hyaluronic acid, which is also present in the dermis layer of our skin, are mostly used.
Lidocaine is added to filler injections to minimize pain and the change is immediately noticeable. However, due to the water retention of fillers, the permanent result will be seen 7-10 days later. The retention of hyaluronic acid-containing fillings is approximately 1-1.5 years.
Cheek-lip transition line (nasolabial groove and Marionette line), that comes with ageing, can also be eliminated with the use of fillers, creating a more rejuvenated appearance. The eyelid-cheek transition line is another preferred area for filler application. The filler does not only smoothen the eyelid-cheek transition, but it also helps conceal under-eye bags.
The right type of fillers you need will be determined by the area in need and the final results wanted. Hyaluronic acid contents, which are prepared with less dense consistency, create a shinier effect than traditional fillers. For this reason, this type of filler is called ‘light filling’ or ‘moisture vaccine Bu’. It evens out the skin tone and increases collagen production, resulting in a brighter and more vivid appearance. Fillers are a low-risk, painless procedure with immediate, guaranteed results. At ClinMedica, fillers are done by experienced plastic surgeons and dermatologists.
