Laser Lip Rejuvenation: Combining Fraxel with Dermal Fillers for Improved Mouth Rejuvenation

beverly hills lip augmentation

Whether you’ve never been satisfied with the shape and size of your lips or your lips have thinned due to age, sun damage and dryness, a combination Fraxel laser treatment with a dermal filler, like Belotero or Restylane Silk, can rejuvenate the lips and the area surrounding the lips to add more pucker to your pout.

Comprehensive Lip Rejuvenation

Younger skin appears smooth on the surface because of the presence of fat tissues and the adequate production of collagen. At this stage, the skin’s surface is unlined and unmarked with imperfections, which is the ideal condition that mature men and women hope to recapture through various cosmetic interventions as time marches on.

Factors Affecting Skin Condition

The aging process can do a number on your skin. Collagen production declines with age, and this could lead to furrows and lines, especially around the mouth. Other factors that contribute to perioral lines include smoking, accumulated damage from sun exposure, and genetics. Repeated movement of the lips such as puckering and pursing the lips can lead to permanent lines. Dry skin can also make frown lines seem more prominent.

Anti-wrinkle Solutions

Frown lines and thinning lips are more pronounced in women than in men because women have fewer sebaceous glands near the mouth. For many, full and well-defined lips are symbolic of youth. Fortunately, there are several mouth rejuvenation strategies in use that are approved by the Food and Drug Administration that we like to use as combination treatments here in our Beverly Hills aesthetic treatment center.

Laser lip rejuvenation combines Fraxel laser resurfacing with dermal fillers to smooth lines out and restore fullness in the lips. This non-invasive procedure uses fractional laser technology to remove dark spots and fine lines, improve texture and skin tone and encourage skin cell rejuvenation. Fraxel for lip lines essentially tricks the skin into replacing damaged skin cells, resulting in younger looking skin.

Dermal Fillers

Belotero is a prescription-only injectable that works by plumping up the nasolabial folds. Unlike Botox, Belotero and other facial fillers do not affect the facial muscles. Facial fillers contain a hyaluronic acid gel that fills out moderate to severe lines around the mouth and the nasolabial folds; others are specially formulated for the cheeks and under the eyes. The effect is evident immediately and may last up to six months.

Among the popular lip fillers today, Restylane Silk has the smallest particle size, making it suitable for smoothing very fine wrinkles such as the so-called lipstick lines. Based on hyaluronic acid, Restylane Silk is also ideal for lip augmentation. Restylane Silk comes from the makers of Restylane and Perlane and is the only FDA approved filler that is exclusively indicated for lips.

A Comprehensive Approach to Laser Lip Rejuvenation

Combining Fraxel resurfacing with lip injections is a revolutionary approach to lip and mouth rejuvenation. Fraxel laser technology targets microscopic areas around the mouth and underneath the skin’s surface, triggering the body's own healing process to replace damaged skin cells. After laser resurfacing, injecting facial fillers like Belotero and Restylane Silk build up the delicate area around the mouth. In the hands of a talented and certified injection specialist, this comprehensive approach to lip rejuvenation can yield extraordinary results that are visible and lasting.

New protocols for office visits View Update

New protocols for office visits

May 12th, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have instituted many changes to your normal office visit. These changes have been introduced to protect everyone’s health and safety during your visit. All of our staff have been tested for COVID-19 and are negative. They are being monitored daily as well and will be practicing safety guidelines.

  1. If you are sick, do not come to the office. Call our front desk and we will reschedule your appointment promptly once you’re healthy again.
  2. Please wear a mask to your appointment.
  3. Do not bring someone else with you to your appointment. They will not be able to enter the office and wait for you. The only exceptions are for those who require medical assistance or translation assistance. Additionally, please do not bring any pets to the office with you.
  4. The day before your appointment, as in the past, you will be called to confirm your appointment. During that call you will be asked if you have any symptoms like fever, chills, muscle aches, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste. You will also be asked if you have been recently exposed to COVID-19 or have been traveling on a commercial airplane within the last 2 weeks.
  5. When you arrive for your appointment, please call the office from your car. A staff member will either tell you to come up to the office at that time or will ask you to wait in your car until they text you to come up. Before entering the front door of the office, you will be met by a staff member who will take your temperature with a no-touch forehead thermometer to be sure you don’t have a fever. They will again ask you if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. You will be given a mask if you don’t have one, as well as hand sanitizer since you touched the doorknob to enter the office. We will stagger appointments so that on the day of your treatment, you will not interact with any other patients.
  6. You will be taken directly to an exam room which has been cleaned and disinfected just prior to your arrival. There are also air filtration machines installed in each exam room which sterilize the air.
  7. Our medical assistants, who will be wearing N95 masks and protective eye shields, will take your history and prepare you for your visit. You will be asked to sign a new COVID-19 consent form in addition to any of the usual consent forms you may be used to.
  8. After your treatment, you will check out while in the exam room and any products you purchase will be brought to you. If you give us your credit card information the day before your appointment, we can handle the checkout without physically touching your card.
  9. Please try to make your follow up appointments during your office visit. With new scheduling changes and staggered appointments, last minute appointments may be difficult to schedule.
