Your Lips Deserve a Standing Ovation!

JuvedermOver the past several years, we have witnessed immense change in the area of aesthetic medicine. One of those has been a hot new trend, largely promoted by popular reality TV personality Kylie Jenner. It was just last year that this young lady came clean about her visits with her California cosmetic surgeon to augment her lips with temporary soft tissue fillers.  Since that time, searches for the term “lip fillers” have gone through the roof, understandably so. We do not involve ourselves in the conversation regarding the appropriateness of a 17-year-old undergoing such a procedure. What we do, however, is help our patients gain the appearance they desire by consulting with them about their concerns related to thin or deflated lips.

Should you get lip fillers?

Like many other cosmetic treatments, lip fillers can be incredibly valuable in certain situations. That does not mean that every woman should enlarge the size of her lips. Also, it does not mean that bigger is better (look how that idea turned out with breast implants!). When we look at women like Jenner or like Angelina Jolie, we see how the lips take center stage to enhance overall beauty. Conversely, there are examples of overfilling, and the downside to this dramatic augmentation. Some examples of what not to do include actress Lisa Rinna or model Janice Dickinson.

Lip fillers are often used to:

  • Make a thin upper lip appear more prominent.
  • Make the lips appear more symmetrical, or balanced in their contours.
  • Add volume to upper or lower lips that have deflated over the years. This also can restore better definition around the borders of the mouth.
  • Minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that have developed along lip borders.

At Sahara medical Institute, you can find the care you need from a friendly inexperienced staff. The product often used to fill out the lips is Juvederm, a trusted filler with a proven history of success.

How Hyaluronic Acid Benefits your Skin

dermal fillersSun, wind, rain, and virtually everything else in the environment eventually degrades the skin. However, you cannot be expected to stay inside all the time in order to enjoy lasting beauty. At some point, fine lines and wrinkles appear on us all simply because the body ages. Rather than attempt to avoid the inevitable, the team at Sahara Medical Institute invites you to address aging with injectible wrinkle-reduction treatments in our Las Vegas aesthetic center.

One of the ways that our team helps patients feel better about their appearance is by addressing skin laxity and lines with dermal fillers. As implied by the name, precision formulations “fill” creases and folds in the skin. Additionally, they can “fill out” areas which have become flat or deflated, such as the cheeks and the lips. Many of the popular filler products available today are based on hyaluronic acid.

Why we Love Hyaluronic Acid

This natural substance is produced by the body, but amounts decrease with age. Hyaluronic acid is partially responsible for the lubrication of joints, the eyes, and the skin. It works by attracting water molecules and then binding to them. When stores are depleted, the skin becomes dryer, seemingly by the day. As a result, it loses its elasticity and resiliency, giving way to lines and wrinkles.

Why Multiple Hyaluronic Acid Fillers Exist

You may have made the decision to seek help for your facial aging concerns, but still feel somewhat unsure of how to reach your desired outcome. A filler is not a filler is not a filler. What we mean is that all fillers are not created equal. In order to obtain the best results from dermal fillers, it is necessary to consult with an experienced practitioner who has treated a good number of patients. At Sahara Medical Institute, we recognize the difference between the tissue on the cheeks and that beneath the eyes. Our injectors know how our products will work beneath the skin, and which consistency of product is needed to achieve a desired outcome.

Some fillers are smooth, with tiny particles that fill in finer lines or hollows under the eyes. Other products are formulated with larger particles in a denser gel solution, making them better suited to thicker skin or the reinstatement of volume.
