The primary objective of undergoing lip filler treatments is to give the lips the appearance of being fuller and more youthful. Most patients want a more natural enhancement, such as returning their lips to how they looked when they were younger.
When performing a lip filler treatment, Dr. McGillivray emphasizes the importance of considering a patient's age, goals, and natural anatomy. Lip filler treatments can help younger patients achieve a more symmetrical lip appearance, build subtle volume, and restore hydration to dry lips. According to Dr. McGillivray, fillers are typically composed of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a natural sugar found in the body thatbinds water in the tissue of the lips, providing hydration and a subtle "gloss without the gloss" effect.
Treatments with lip filler can assist older patients in regaining the volume and definition of their lip borders that may have been lost during the aging process. In addition, if a patient has experienced a loss of volume in the mid-face, Dr. McGillivray explains that restoring volume into that area with filler before treating the lips can lift the corners of the mouth for a happier and softer resting expression.
Each lip filler procedure is customized for the patient, taking into account their natural anatomy, the proportion of their upper and lower lips, face shape, and profile in order to produce beautiful and natural results.
Following lip filler therapy, patients can anticipate results immediately, with optimal results within one to two weeks. Results that can last upwards of six months and Dr. McGillivray advises using Functionalab Collagen Infusion lip serum for further improvement.
