Whether dealing with dreaded “smoker’s lines” or simply want to give lips an extra boost, discuss options with your favorite skin clinic in Beverly Hills. The Kopelson Clinic offers numerous dermal fillers, some of which may be used to treat lip imperfections. While not all dermal fillers in Beverly Hills are usable on or around the lips, those that are work very well.
Let’s check them out:
One of the newer dermal fillers to be approved by the FDA, Belotero is similar to fellow hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane. It disperses into the dermis very well, making that bluish skin tint side effect highly unlikely. Belotero is frequently used to treat smoker’s lines, or the vertical lines that appear above the lips from years of smoking cigarettes. Women who wear lipstick have even more trouble with these lines, as the makeup tends to bleed into them. Belotero is also effective for treatment of smile and chin strap lines.
Results are immediate and last six to 12 months. Injections are not painful when performed at The Kopelson Clinic, with no patients reporting severe side effects. The only side effect is mild swelling, with most patients experiencing no side effects whatsoever.
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler celebrated as the go-to dermal filler for lip augmentation. It is the softest filler and therefore works extremely well when injected into the lip line. Juvederm is also easily-molded to create desired effects, with patients reporting they feel “nothing” compared to lip injections from other dermal fillers.
The wrinkle filler is also used to restore volume to the mid-cheek areas and naso-labial folds, as well as to fill fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. Results are immediate and last six to 12 months. Side effects are mild and can include bruising at the injection site. Rare side effects include nodules, swelling, and the aforementioned bluish tint.
