Where can RHA® Fillers be placed?

RHA®® fillers have a wide range of placement for facial wrinkles including the Nasal Labial Folds. These lines run vertically from the nose to the mouth corners. Additionally, the vertical lip lines that appear over time called perioral lines is a common area of filler placement. This helps alleviate the “smoker’s lines'' appearance. The corner lines that appear where the upper lip meets the lower lip is an area commonly referred to as “Marionette Lines”, which can give the mouth a downward appearance. Other areas that fillers can be used include the cheeks. Our cheeks tend to lose the structure and form and will begin looking somewhat hollow. RHA®® Fillers offer lifting and contouring effects and restores the shape of the cheeks. One of the most common areas that RHA®® Fillers can be placed is the lips. Fillers is the ideal balance of flexibility and support for the lips. RHA®® Fillershelps soften the lips, restores the shape and improve lip texture and color. Both women and men choose to get lip fillers for multiple reasons. It's important to note that individual motivations can vary, and not everyone chooses the same cosmetic procedures for the same reasons. Some common motivations for getting lip fillers include:

  • Enhancing Lip Volume: One of the primary reasons people opt for lip fillers is to increase the volume and fullness of their lips. Some individuals may have naturally thin lips or may have experienced a reduction in lip volume due to aging.
  • Achieving a More Defined Lip Shape: Lip fillers can be used to reshape the lips and create a more defined and aesthetically pleasing lip contour. This can include adding definition to the cupid's bow or addressing asymmetry.
  • Youthful Appearance and Hydration: Fuller lips are often associated with youthfulness, and some individuals seek lip fillers as a way to achieve a more youthful look or to restore volume loss and hydration due to aging.
  • Boosting Confidence: Cosmetic procedures, including lip fillers, can boost self-confidence and enhance self-esteem for individuals who feel self-conscious about the appearance of their lips.
  • Personal Preference: Ultimately, some individuals simply prefer the look of fuller lips and choose lip fillers as a way to achieve their desired aesthetic.

It's essential to approach cosmetic procedures with careful consideration, understanding both the potential benefits and risks involved. It's advisable to consult with a qualified and experienced medical professional to discuss individual goals, expectations, and any potential concerns before deciding to undergo any cosmetic procedure.
