Who doesn't want plumper, fuller lips? The problem is that our lips start to thin and sag as we age. As a result, our pouty look starts to disappear, leaving us no choice but to look for a solution to help us achieve the same youthful appearance as our younger days. Although there are many ways to enhance your lips, dermal fillers are one of the best options available. Our dermal fillers at Virginia Beach are made from natural materials such as hyaluronic acid and collagen, which we inject directly into your lips to boost volume and fullness.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers, in simple terms, are a semi-permanent injection method used to defy the effects of aging on your face. They are made from the natural material Hyaluronic Acid, a molecule that holds 1000 times its weight in water. This acid can be harvested from rooster combs or laboratory-produced by bacterial fermentation. It's found naturally throughout the body and lubricates joints, keeping them plump and moisturized. When applied as a dermal filler, Hyaluronic Acid can restore volume to lips or cheeks that have lost some of their fullness due to sun damage or aging.

Why Dermal Fillers?

If you are on the more mature end of the spectrum, you have probably considered lip augmentation at one point or another. It can be challenging to decide to plump up your lips. Some think hyaluronic injectables are the only option for this process. However, we can now safely and rapidly achieve a natural and long-lasting result using injectable dermal fillers for lip augmentation. Here is why many are opting for our lip augmentation in Virginia Beach.

You'll See Results Instantly

The results of your treatment will be immediate. While you'll see the full effects in a couple of days, you can expect an immediate improvement in the lip appearance after treatment. After treatment, as your body absorbs the filler material, it will leave behind a natural fill that gives a subtle enhancement to your lips while maintaining their natural shape and size.

You're in Control of the Result You Want

Note that you're in control of your desired result. As with other cosmetic procedures, there is no one size fits all solution for lip enhancement. You can choose the amount of filler you want and how long you want it on your lips. Experts recommend starting with a small amount initially and increasing gradually over time as your body adapts to the extra volume. Plus, you want to avoid appearing to have fake lips due to excess injections.

You Can Choose From Different Fillers for Different Effects

You can choose from different fillers for different effects. Hyaluronic acid fillers, for example, give you full and youthful-looking lips and other areas of your skin. You can use it to correct lip volume loss or make them appear fuller in the long term. They are also suitable for people who have allergies to other fillers and are especially popular with younger clients. For those who want something more dramatic, collagen filler adds volume and fullness to the lips without making them appear unnatural. Our own body produces collagen, so it lessens the risk of unwanted reactions such as swelling or hardening of your lips after injecting them with a filler material that your body doesn't recognize properly. However, collagen fillers yield results for approximately three months. On the other hand, hyaluronic acid has effects lasting twelve months or more. For lip filler in Virginia Beach, we offer a range of options from simple lip plumping using hyaluronic acid-based products such as Juvederm Vollure®, Volbella®, or Restylane.

Sessions Are Quick and Convenient

In most cases, your filler treatment will take five to thirty minutes per section. The procedure takes place in a private room, so you don't have to worry about other people intruding on your experience. And since the injected filler will last for several months, you won't need additional sessions for a few months after the initial treatment.

Fillers Stimulate Your Body's Own Collagen Production

Lip fillers stimulate your body's collagen production, a protein that helps keep skin looking young and healthy. This means that filler injections repair the lines or wrinkles on your face naturally instead of just covering them up with quick results like makeup or a surgical procedure. Unlike surgery procedures like lip lifts which remove tissue but don't do anything to stimulate new growth processes in your body, dermal fillers increase the volume so they can last longer without needing further injections.

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

Dermal fillers are a great way to get that youthful glow back, but what's the deal with how long they last? The answer depends on the type of filler you have used and its application. In general, dermal fillers should last between 6-18 months. It is important to note that all dermal fillers are different. Some will last longer than others, depending on their ingredients, application method, and placement. The length of time a filler lasts also depends on factors such as skin type and lifestyle choices like smoking and sun exposure. The results of dermal fillers vary greatly from patient to patient but most last anywhere from 6 to18 months before needing to be replaced or refreshed. This applies by having another treatment performed again or by adding more filler into areas where there has been some loss due to natural body changes such as aging, weight gain or loss, etc.

Ideal Candidates for Dermal Fillers

If you're wondering whether dermal fillers are suitable for you, here's a list of the ideal candidates:

People Who Have Lost Volume in Their Face Due To Aging

The loss of volume in the face is a natural part of aging. Aging sees our skin loses elasticity, and collagen production slows down, causing the skin to sag and form wrinkles. These changes mainly apply around the eyes, where fewer blood vessels and lymphatic channels support extra-thick layers of fat. While dermal fillers can't prevent these changes from happening naturally over time, they can help restore lost volume or create more fullness in the cheeksand lips for people who want a more youthful appearance.

People Who Want To Reduce the Appearance of Lines and Wrinkles

If you're planning to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers are a great option. Hyaluronic acid and collagen-based fillers are ideal for this purpose, but hyaluronic acid products are better if you want results to last over one year. Collagen products treat facial lines and wrinkles around the mouth, cheeks, and forehead. Hyaluronic acid products also work well for treating these areas, but they also have a longer-lasting effect. Collagen is also an excellent choice for deep nasolabial folds - nasolabial folds crease together when people smile. In addition to reducing the appearance of these lines from smiling or squinting, collagen help lift sagging skin on the cheeks or under the eyes, which results in a more youthful-looking face overall.

People Who Don't Want Surgery

Fillers are a less invasive treatment than surgery. They do not require anesthesia and can return to your daily activities immediately after treatment. Fillers are less expensive than surgery because they don't require anesthesia, incisions, or hospital stays.

Young People

Age is a crucial factor when it comes to dermal fillers. Younger people tend to do better with fillers because they have more elastic skin, which absorbs the product better and helps it last longer. In older patients, the presence of collagen decreases as they age. This is why some doctors recommend that older people not use fillers. However, others argue that older patients can still achieve results if the practitioners are careful about their technique. Most people in their mid-30s are interested in dermal fillersbecause they have many questions about how they might look when they get older. With dermal fillers, they can create a beautiful, youthful appearance today without having to worry about their future self-image.

Professionals should do filler treatments

Finding a practitioner with the proper training and experience is important if you are considering filler treatment. A good practitioner will explain exactly what they plan to do and why and answer any questions you might have. You should also feel comfortable with them and be confident in their expertise. If you choose a practitioner who does not have the right level of experience or expertise for your needs, this could lead to poor results, which may need correcting by another professional.
