Reasons to Choose HA Dermal Fillers Over Collagen for Lip Injections
Facial rejuvenation can be achieved through skin ablation, peel treatments, laser resurfacing, and injectable fillers. The latter is popular for its simplicity. The most common type of dermal filler is an injectable gel that contains hyaluronic acid.
The benefits of using hyaluronic acid fillers for lip augmentation are many, including quick results and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the lip skin. Collagen fillers are still used today, and in some cases, this type of dermal filler is believed to be beneficial. However, this is only the case for a small number of people.
How the Filler Works
The hyaluronic acid particles in these fillers are the same particles that are naturally produced in the body. Unfortunately, most of us don't have much under our skin or under our skin layers. When injected just below the skin of the lips, the acid absorbs and retains moisture. This makes the skin appear slightly more moisturized and the result is a wrinkle-free skin surface. The lips themselves are now fuller and have a more pleasing natural curve.
There are several types of hyaluronic acid filler gels made in the lab, and the dermatologist will determine which is better for treating a particular area. For example, a heavier, denser, and more stretchable gel might be good for smoothing out larger wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds, but a thinner gel compound might be better for enhancing the lip border.
About Collagen Fillers
Collagen is a natural protein in the body that gives the skin its elasticity and suppleness. It is also present in moderate concentrations in ligaments and joints. These filters are thought to fight wrinkles because the added collagen in and under the skin makes the surface a little tighter. This reduces the appearance of crow's feet and laughs lines.
Advantages of Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen
While collagen fillers can help improve wrinkled skin in certain areas of the face, they don't add volume, so they're not the go-to gel type for lip augmentation in most cases. Volume loss is the most common concern our customers bring to us. Hyaluronic acid fillers come in a variety of forms, which vary in the thickness and consistency of the gel. This allows us to tailor treatments to each client, something that is difficult to do with collagen fillers.
