LIPS AND FILLERS Q & A
What are fillers?
Fillers are an injectable, clear gel made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in our bodies to provide cushioning between joints and hydration to the skin.
Injectable fillers generally focus on your skin’s volume and facial contours. Since they’re injectable, they’re minimally invasive and less risky than cosmetic surgery.
Fillers focus on minimizing the physical signs of aging, like wrinkles, facial volume loss, and thinning lips. Kelly creates a personalized treatment strategy to meet your aesthetic goals.
What can fillers do to enhance my appearance?
As more advanced and long-lasting fillers become available, the list of changes they can make to your appearance becomes longer. Kelly can help you choose a filler that can:
- Minimize wrinkles and lines around your lips
- Reshape your lips
- Make your lips more defined
- Add volume to your lips
- Add volume to your cheeks
- Make your face look more symmetrical
Depending on your goals, you may need multiple filler injections to get your ideal look. Fillers generally last for six months to over a year.
Who is a candidate for fillers?
Fillers are a great way to make your lips and face more voluminous and supple. To decide if you should get fillers or explore other treatments, Kelly will ask you about your goals, expectations, and general health.
While different fillers are right for different patients and purposes, you might be a generally good candidate for fillers if you:
- Are over 18
- Aren’t satisfied with your appearance
- Have realistic expectations
- Are getting fillers for your own satisfaction, not someone else’s
- Don’t have blood clotting issues
- Don’t have an active skin condition
If fillers aren’t your best option for lip augmentation, wrinkle reduction, or another cosmetic goal, Kelly can review other treatment possibilities with you that might be a better fit.
What are the benefits of getting fillers?
Choosing fillers for your lips, cheeks, or wrinkles provides many benefits. In part, people keep coming back for them because:
- Results are almost immediate
- Make you look your best
- Boost your confidence
- Require little maintenance
- Most don’t require recovery time
Even though they’re not medically necessary, fillers can improve your overall well-being and rejuvenate your youthful appearance. To explore the many possibilities of fillers, call Faces by Kelly today.
