I would like to get injectable fillers in my face. I want to plump up both my lips and my nasolabial folds which have gotten quite pronounced. I would like hyaluronic acid because the reports that I read indicate it is longer lasting than collagen. Is hyaluronic acid appropriate for both areas?
Having your lips and nasolabial folds plumped up at the same time is a frequently requested procedure. I am a very big fan of hyaluronic acid products for a number of reasons. Not all hyaluronic acid filler products are the same. Juvederm and Restylane have a smaller particle hyaluronic acid and are ideal for areas such as the lips, superficial nasolabial folds, and underneath the eyes. Perlane and Juvederm Ultra Plus have larger hyaluronic acid particle size and work well in deeper wrinkles and for facial augmentation such as the cheeks and mid face.
