Lip enhancement with dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid (HA) that are biodegradable and are formulated specifically to address aging changes including loss of volume, color, and elasticity. Lip fillers are non-invasive, virtually pain-free, and the results can last for many months.
Founded and led by Dr. Sheila Farhang, who is recognized as an 'expert in both integrative skincare and cutting-edge procedures' by Forbes Magazine, Avant Dermatology brings the best in general dermatology, cosmetic services and skin cancer surgery to patients in Tucson and Beverly Hills.
With age our lips become thinner, retract, lose volume, and become less well-defined due to a gradual loss of collagen and elastin. The loss of elasticity creates vertical lip lines, and the lips lose color. Lip movements also change with age. The smile narrows vertically and widens horizontally.
Avant Dermatology & Aesthetics provides lip enhancement with two dermal fillers: Restylane Kysse and Juvederm Ultra XC. These HA fillers are designed specifically for lip augmentation. They plump and volumize the lips and smooth wrinkles almost instantly. Both HA fillers contain lidocaine to improve comfort during the procedure.
During your consultation Dr. Sheila will review your medical history as well as any conditions that would make treatment unsafe or inappropriate. If you are pregnant, have allergies to HA or lidocaine, or inflammatory skin conditions such as rosacea, or bleeding disorders you may not be a good candidate.
Dr. Sheila will study your facial expressions at rest and in motion and evaluate your lips and facial symmetries. She will recommend the most appropriate filler for your goals.
