How can we get lips that look natural and sensual?
Lack of volume, shape and wrinkles are the main aesthetic problems of the lips.
Fillers are the simplest tool with the shortest recovery time to give them shape and volume and reduce wrinkles. It is important, however, that the treating physician has knowledge of the different types of existing filler materials, ability to apply them and great aesthetic sensitivity.
Facial fillers: What you need to know before doing a treatment
At Hoogstra Medical Centers, the placement of fillers and the application of botulinum toxin (like all surgeries) are performed by Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra.
Two types of flashing are used in our medical centers:
- Autologous, fat autograft of the patient himself.
- Heterologous or synthetic, of which uses only hyaluronic acids such as Restylane (from the Galderma laboratory) and Voluma (from the Allergan laboratory).
Unfortunately, many patients come to our Centers reporting that they placed hyaluronic acid, and when asked how long it took since the placement, many times indicate a much longer time than they last in the body.
Restylane has an average duration of 14 months. Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra uses it for wrinkle fillers and facial grooves. Voluma has a much longer duration and is used to model cheekbones, chin, tear canal and maxillary branch.
Currently, unfortunately, some medical and non-medical professionals continue to make fillers with prohibited products such as silicones. This leads to great physical deformations, damage to the health and psyche of the patient. This damage is permanent and irreversible. Silicones migrate and produce those typical facial and lip deformations.
If you see a deformed lip or a deformed face, it is very likely that a prohibited product has been placed on it.
Hyaluronic acids and botulinum toxin should be applied exclusively by plastic surgeons who have a greater understanding of the anatomy of the body.
The application should be done slowly and progressively so that the patient is accompanying the subtle changes that occur.
If the procedure is performed in this way, the results should always be natural and the patient would notice an improvement immediately after application.
In our center it is very rare to see a hypercorrection, but if this were to occur, first you have to wait about 30 days because it is probably a small inflammation, which is based on soft massages that the same patient performs.
In our Centers there are only two brands that give us maximum security and they are Restylane (Galderma) and Voluma (Allergan).
What is hyaluronidase?
Hyaluronidase is an enzyme, a catalyst, that breaks the hyaluronic acid molecule and breaks it down, leading to its reabsorption and disappearance.
How long does it work?
A frequently asked question is how long does the product take to reabsorb?
As long as a second session is not required, the product will disappear in less than 24 hours.
Lip Filler Treatment Cost
The application of a vial of Hyaluronic Acid on lips has a cost of $12,000.
Lips aesthetics is performed by Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra in the 3 branches.
