Lip Filler and Perioral Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a non-invasive way to rejuvenate skin and smooth fine lines and wrinkles that is used as an alternative to cosmetic surgery. The FDA approved procedure helps boosts collagen to achieve a more youthful look. Lip fillers can also help improve the appearance of lips by adding shape, volume, and structure. Alamo Heights Dermatology has some great specials for perioral Ultherapy and lip filler for February.

The Procedure

Collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycan are all naturally produced by the body. They contribute to a firm, hydrated, youthful skin. Collagen and elastin production slow down as we get older, resulting in the sagging and loss of firmness associated with the aging skin process. Ultherapy uses targeted ultrasound technology to stimulate the production of collagen.

The area around the lips, chin, neck, chest, and eyebrows can all be treated with Ultherapy. The device is directed over the skin, and the ultrasound can reach deep into the layers to encourage the production of collagen. The procedure can take anywhere from 30-90 minutes, depending on the area treated. There is no recovery time, and you can return to normal activities after. 

For lip fillers, very fine needles are used to inject desired product into the lips. Swelling and bruising is expected for a few days.

Results

 Remember the Heinz commercial? “Good things come to those who wait.” Well, the same is valid here. Collagen takes a couple of months for the body to produce. Add in the fact that everyone’s body works differently, we can say on average; it takes 2-3 months to see optimal results for Ultherapy. Fine lines will smooth out, and skin will look more youthful. In some cases, additional treatments may be needed. 

Lip filler results can be immediately noticed, and after you have healed, lips should feel natural.
