Collagen

Years of sun exposure, smoking and aging can diminish the looks of the lips and surrounding skin. Cosmetic techniques can bring back the lips' beauty, from making them fuller to diminishing wrinkles, we can dramatically enhance lips during one outpatient procedure.

Surgeons have traditionally achieved full lips for patients by injecting collagen, autologen (one's own tissue), or fat. While these procedures work well, the drawback is the lasting power of these injectables. “RADIESSE™” is a new injectable product for lip enlargement and filling of folds and lines. The advantage of this product over collagen and other fillers, is the potential for long lasting effects. This new product has been shown to last up to 3 -5 years!

 

Another injectable, Restylane Injectable Fillers, is being used instead of collagen for injecting in the lips and facial depressions. Hyaluronic Acid Injection Gel / Restylane Fillers binds with water and generally remains for many months, outlasting collagen.

For those patients wanting a more permanent solution, the use of soft facial implants is a good alternative. The soft facial implants, Gortex or Advanta, are two permanent implants that are being used for lip enhancement and also used to smooth the deeper lines between the cheeks and mouth—known as the naso-labial folds. Because these implants are permanent, there is no need for further collagen injections.

While the soft facial implants do not address the fine lines around the lips, laser skin resurfacing does and can be done in conjunction with facial implants. Dr. Korpeck performs laser skin resurfacing with the CO2 or erbium laser at the same time as implanting the facial implants to smooth the skin surrounding the lips. The laser is so precise that it attacks only the surface tissue, which causes the uneven wrinkling. Patients should be aware that like dermabrasion or facial pees, the laser procedure causes redness, which can last up to six weeks.
