Do u use #Radiesse around mouth to fill smokers lines or is it #Juvederm?
I would generally recommend one of the HA fillers, such as Juvederm, Belotero or Restylane, for finer lines. I reserve Radiesse for deeper areas, such as the cheekbones and nasolabial lines, where it is one of my preferred injectable fillers.
I hope that this helps and good luck,
a calcium based filler that acts as a scaffold under the skin providing
structure and collagen stimulation. It is best used for moderate to severe
facial wrinkles and folds. I generally inject this filler in the cheeks,
marionette lines, smile lines and pre jowl area. For the “smokers lines” above
the lip I prefer to inject a hyaluronic acid based filler. Currently I find that
Belotero works best for these lines. Belotero is specifically designed to
integrate into your skin and mold to your facial contours giving you immediate
smooth and natural results that can last up to 9 months. Consult with a Board
Certified Dermatologist to see if this filler will work for your concerns.
Belotero would be a great filler to inject this particular area without looking "overdone". This particular filler is injected very superficial and the outcome is very natural.
Filling Smokers' Lines on Lips
If the goal is to fill the lines without augmenting the lips to increase the volume or the pout I recommend the use of Belotero which can be injected very superficially to fill the lines.
In my practice, I prefer to use a hyaluronic acid filler like Juvederm for filling fine lines. Radiesse is indicated for moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. I have found that due to its consistency, it is best used for larger areas of volume loss or facial hollowing. Different physicians may use different methods and prefer different products, but if you are looking to fill in fine lines, I think a hyaluronic acid filler (not Radiesse) will be your best bet.
Best of luck!
