Here’s your complete guide to dermal fillers, where they can be applied, and how they work to enhance and provide a naturally contoured look.
What are dermal fillers and lip fillers?
As you age, your face will naturally lose volume over time (thank gravity for this). Dermal fillers contain a soft, almost gel-like form of hyaluronic acid, a molecule found naturally in your body that helps keep skin hydrated and plump. Hyaluronic acid is considered a super ingredient in the aesthetic world.
You’ve probably seen hyaluronic acid as an ingredient in your moisturizer or serum. It acts as a humectant, which means it draws water into your skin for ultimate hydration. When hyaluronic acid is used in a filler, the results are subtle and natural—but effective.
When applied, dermal fillers with hyaluronic acid add structure back to your face by plumping up the volume from the inside-out. The result? A smoother appearance of lines and wrinkles, and a full, natural look—with nearly instant gratification (i.e. you’ll see results fast).
Where can I get fillers applied?
Fillers are perfect for anywhere on your face where you want a little more shape and structure. Dermal fillers can be applied to your cheeks for an instant contour and along the jaw, chin, and any slightly puckered lines above your lip for a refreshed look. In fact, dermal fillers are so effective, they’ve been hailed as a less invasive facelift alternative.
And if you’re looking for an instant boost of volume or a more defined lip shape, they also do the work. Lip fillers are a popular choice for anyone looking to take their first steps into treatments. Fillers like Restalyne’s Kysee add natural-looking volume and healthy color to the lips. Even better, Kysse is known for giving your lips a natural movement and feel, thanks to the way the hyaluronic acid binds to itself.
Who should get fillers?
Fillers are for anyone who wants to add shape, structure, and volume to their face—no matter what age you are. At Vit&Drip Center, we see plenty of clients in their 20s who love the look lip fillers give them. We also see clients in their 50s who book a reservation for fillers because they appreciate the volume and smoothed appearance of lines and wrinkles.
What should I know before getting lip filler?
The first question everyone asks is, naturally, “does getting lip filler hurt?” Lip filler is minimally invasive, but the treatment can still be uncomfortable. Here’s how we make it more relaxing at Vit&Drip Center: we apply a topical anesthetic before injections, and we also use an icepack after.
Your main focus when searching for the best filler in Marbella should be finding a practitioner whose results match up with your desired look. Research your practitioner’s experience, including before/after photos, before deciding where to book your lip filler.
If you’re still not sure, don't worry: fillers are temporary, with results lasting for six to 18 months depending on your goals and what type of filler you get. If you think lip filler might help you feel more confident in your skin, it’s worth a shot—and we’ll be here to help you decide which fillers and areas will work best for you.
