Before and immediately after lip enhancement with the 0.6 cc of the new filler Volbella by Allergan, with VyCross technology for more longevity, and with low cohesivity for the most natural appearance with a smooth texture and no lumps. She would benefit from an additional syringe, primarily to the central lower lip.
Before, and immediately after Restylane for oral commissures (corners of the mouth) and chin, and blended Restylane for the vermillion borders of the lips.
Note lift of sides of face from Voluma to zygomatic area of lateral cheeks.
Before and after 1/2 mL of Voluma to the cheeks
Note that the nasolabial folds and oral commissures improved even though they were not directly injected.
Before and immediately after Belotero to three small indented scars and two superficial lines of the right upper lip and angle of the mouth.
After one-half syringe of Voluma to cheekbones. Patient had also been treated with Pellevé for skin tightening.
There are many fillers that can be used for scars. This patient developed a hypertrophic scar after trauma to her nose, and a depressed scar after steroid treatment at another practice. Just a tiny amount of Restylane took away the depression and redness immediately.
This patient in her 70s was looking for subtle enhancement of the volume of her lips and benefitted by rebalancing of the upper to lower lip to reflect the phi ratio of 1:1.61. She is shown about 3 months after the procedure.
