What are Lip Fillers?
Lip Fillers are a very popular cosmetic procedure that creates fuller and plumper lips. Whether it be Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen, or Fat injections, Dr. Heidari offers his Southern California patients a variety of dermal filler options, each of which he has particular expertise in performing. Together, you will be able to design a treatment that is tailored to best suit your needs and goals so that your lips look as plump as ever without looking overdone.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a natural substance that your body creates and it acts like a lubricant for your joints. When injected into strategic locations on your lips, it increases the shape, structure, and volume of your lips. Since it is a natural substance, your body will break it down and absorb it over time.
Collagen was once the most popular technique but is often used less in this new era of lip Fillers. Much like HA, Collagen is a naturally developed substance by your body. The older we get, the less collagen our bodies produce, which is why we develop wrinkled, sagging skin.
Another method that can be used is fat injections or implants, but fat injections are less predictable and may not last as long and implants can have a greater risk of side effects.
