One of the most common reasons we see patients at Kaniff Cosmetic Medical Center is because they want to address concerns in their lips and mouth area. While some patients were born with lips that are thinner than they’d like, others come to us seeking lip injections to regain volume that they’ve lost over the years.
Various products can be used for lip injections in Sacramento. Some patients opt for one product to improve the volume of their lips, and others prefer a combination of lip filler products to achieve their desired results.
If you’ve been thinking about whether to get lip injections in Sacramento, CA, schedule a personal consultation with the team at Kaniff Cosmetic Medical Center today. We’ll learn about you and listen to your concerns before we customize a treatment plan to address your aesthetic goals.
Why Choose Lip Filler Injections?
In our youth, our bodies naturally produce substances that help skin and lips retain volume, moisture, and suppleness. These substances include collagen and elastin, which you’ve likely heard of before.
As the years go by, our bodies naturally slow down the production of elastin and collagen. This decrease can also be caused by factors other than aging, some of which include:
- Exposure to ultraviolet light
- Excessive sugar intake
- Poor diet
When collagen and elastin production decreases, no matter the reason, the lips can lose volume and moisture, appearing thin and overly wrinkled. Regardless of the reason for your thinning lips, Kaniff Cosmetic Medical Center, led by Dr. Kaniff, has the solution for you.
As the upper and lower lip lose structure and volume, the definition of your cupid’s bow may diminish, and wrinkles may also become more pronounced. Lip filler injections can restore the full, plump, luscious look of the lips you once had. If you’ve always had thin lips, lip injections can help fill them out just the same.
Lip injections are non-surgical treatments that require little or no downtime. The products and the procedures are FDA-approved, and the results are often immediate and last for a long time.
Your Treatment Plan for Lip Injections in Sacramento
When you come to see us for your consultation, Dr. Kaniff may recommend different lip fillers that will best suit your needs and achieve your aesthetic goals.
The goal of your lip rejuvenation treatment will be to achieve natural-looking lips that complement your other facial features, instead of having lips that stand out too much or look artificially altered.
There are many different products available for lip injections in Sacramento, and Kaniff Cosmetic Medical Center has all of the top lip fillers. The filler options we offer include:
- Juvéderm Ultra
- Volbella XC
- Restylane Refyne
In order to help you achieve your personal aesthetic goals, Dr. Kaniff may recommend a combination of the above products.
For example, some people may need more structure and volume than Volbella XC can provide, so we may use Restylane Refyne or Juvéderm Ultra to deliver the necessary volume. We may still administer Volbella XC afterward to smooth any additional visible fine lines.
Marionette Lines and Nasolabial Folds
Having fuller lips is often only one of the aesthetic goals our patients have. Patients regularly come to us from Tahoe, Truckee, San Jose, Palo Alto, and other nearby areas so we can treat the lines and folds around the lip area, too.
Nasolabial folds, more commonly known as laugh lines, are the vertical folds that run from the corners of the mouth up toward either side of the nose. Marionette lines stretch from the chin up to the corners of the mouth.
When we smile and make other facial expressions, these lines form. In younger people, the collagen and elastin in the skin erase these lines once they stop making the facial expression.
However, as collagen and elastin production slows, the lines not only don’t disappear anymore, but they also present themselves as more noticeable folds instead of just lines.
There are many outstanding dermal fillers that can successfully treat nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Many patients opt for this type of treatment in addition to lip filler treatment to enhance the overall appearance of their face.
Depending on the degree of volume loss and the depth of the lines and wrinkles around the lips that you want to treat, some of the products available include Juvéderm Ultra Plus, additional Restylane products, and Vollure.
Additional Facial Volume Loss Concerns
In addition to thinning lips with folds and lines around the mouth, many patients also come to us from as far as the Oregon border to treat loss of volume in the cheeks and chin.
Your cheeks and chin can impact the overall contours of your face and contribute to a need for additional volume all over. You can restore cheek volume with products from Juvéderm and Restylane.
A loss of volume at the jaw line as the chin ages can be treated with chin fillers by Juvéderm, Restylane, and Voluma. We can combine these treatments with lip injections, if needed, to help you meet your personal aesthetic goals.
