What are face and lip fillers?

Face fillers, often called dermal fillers, and injectable substances designed to improve facial contouring. They’re most often used to create additional volume in areas where aging has brought unwanted changes. 

When you’re young, your face is padded with a thick layer of collagen cells. Collagen plumps and smooths the skin, creating rounded, soft contouring associated with youth. 

As the years pass, you lose much of that natural collagen. Your skin no longer has the same padding and begins to sag and pool into folds, lines, and wrinkles. 

Face fillers help replace that lost volume and enhance areas of your face like your lips or chin. 

How do dermal fillers work?

Many dermal fillers are made of a synthetic version of hyaluronic acid, a substance your body produces naturally. There are many different fillers to choose from, each created to address specific areas of the face. 

Thicker, gel-like fillers are a great way to smooth the deep lines around your mouth and chin and also help add volume to the cheek portion of your face. Thinner formulations are a good option for erasing wrinkles and lines around your lips and eyes. 

Lip fillers are designed to plump your lips. There are even fillers to plump the backs of your hands, one of the first places on your body to show signs of aging. 

During your consultation, discussing your goals and assessing your facial features allows Dr. Ioannou to design a customized treatment plan. Fillers are a highly customizable treatment option, and it takes a practitioner with an in-depth understanding of facial anatomy to create optimal outcomes. 

How do face fillers factor into a liquid facelift?

A liquid facelift combines dermal fillers and neurotoxin-based injectables like Botox® or Dysport®. A liquid facelift can create impressive results in the hands of a skilled practitioner like Dr. Ioannou.

A liquid facelift is an outstanding option when you’re ready to achieve a refreshed and renewed facial appearance. Results can last anywhere from 4-12 months, depending on the type of injectables you choose and where they’re placed.

Lip Fillers

Lip fillers are an injectable treatment that creates additional volume and definition in your upper or lower lip (often both). It’s an incredibly popular treatment that takes a skilled approach to yield appealing outcomes. 

The products used in lip filler treatments are a type of dermal filler. Lip fillers are made from synthetic hyaluronic acid and have a thick, gel-like texture. The filler spreads slightly to create a soft, natural-looking finish when injected into your lips. 

Your body produces hyaluronic acid naturally. This substance helps keep your skin moist and plump. Synthetic hyaluronic acid is safe for use as an injectable and won’t trigger adverse reactions. 

How do I know how much lip filler is right for me?

If you’re considering trying lip fillers, it’s important to work with a skilled and experienced professional. Dr. Ioannou spent extensive time exploring the intricacies of facial anatomy during her studies in dentistry.
