Top Types of Lip Fillers

Lip injections are a prevalent form of minimally invasive injection that can almost instantaneously provide the lips with a rounder, fuller appearance. Below we look at the top types of lip fillers.

Top Types of Lip Fillers

If you’re looking for lip injections, then the good news is that there are many good options available to you.

That’s because there’s a variety of different types of lip fillers and injections in Simi Valley that can be utilized in this operation. Like everything, though, there are some that are better than others at certain tasks. Here are some of the ones that have proven to be effective throughout multiple procedures.

Dermal Filler Basics

Dermal fillers are typically synthetic injections that are used to plump up areas of the face that have deflated due to the passage of time or other elements.

Still, dermal fillers are a highly effective way to enhance your appearance that doesn’t involve surgery. For this reason, they’ve become very popular with both patients and doctors for their ability to enhance appearance without resorting to more medically complicated invasive surgery.

There are several types of dermal fillers, each one geared towards slightly different specialties. Choosing the right one for your specific situation is key to having a satisfactory experience.

Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus

Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus are utilized to provide the lips with extra volume. They are especially effective in restoring volume to thin or fading lips.

Juvederm Ultra has a slightly softer feel, with some stating the results feel a bit more natural. Both types of filler have the ability to rejuvenate the lips with higher volumes.

If you choose to utilize Ultra and Ultra Plus for your lip injections, then you’ll likely find that your results last for at least up to 6 months and up to a year.

Juvederm Volbella

Juvederm Volbella is a more subtle filler that’s utilized to add volume and definition on lighter levels. One of its signature abilities is to add a “Cupid’s Bow” to the lips.

Because Volbella is considered a lighter filler, the results will be lighter and more subtle, resulting in impacts that last for up to 6 months generally.

Juvederm Vollure

Vollure is the longest-lasting of the major filler options, with results that can last for up to 18 months. This is because it lends itself to producing firmer and more dramatic results for people who are looking to replenish a very thin lip profile.

That being said, Vollure is able to remain soft despite its ability to offer the patient stronger results. This makes it an attractive option for patients who are looking for major overhauls.

Restylane Refyne and Defyne

Refyne and Defyne specialize in their ability to soften the nasolabial folds and marionette lines, which smooths the area between the nose and chin.

In addition to this ability, these fillers have the additional benefit of adding general definition to the lips. This puts them on par with the other fillers on this list for the purpose of replenishing those elements to the lips.

The results from this can last anywhere from 6 months to a year.

Fat Transfer

Another technique that is becoming very popular in place of traditional fillers is performing a fat transfer.

In a fat transfer, a physician harvest fat from an area of the body where it is plentiful. After that, they redeliver the fat via small injections to the lips.

Many patients who receive fat transfers report that the results are very natural looking and say that they prefer them to traditional dermal fillers.

In addition, during this procedure, your doctor can utilize liposuction in order to reshape and replenish the mid-section of the body. This is also true for other areas of the body where the fat is harvested from.

Which Type of Filler Is Right for Me?

There’s no one answer to this question, as the type of filler you might want to use is dependent on several unique elements of your situation. Some of these include your:

  • Anatomy
  • Aesthetic desires
  • Overall goals for your procedure
  • Personal medical profile

During your pre-surgical consultation, you’ll be able to discuss with your doctor all of these elements. They’ll subsequently be able to guide you toward the filler that will best suit your needs.
