What are Therapeutic lip and nasolabial fillers?

Therapeutic uses of injectable fillers are gel-like substances that Dr. Massaband can inject beneath your skin or lips to restore lost harmony and treat asymmetrical smile due to volume lost in patient's face.

Dentists, like Dr. Massaband, study the anatomy of the face on a daily basis.

Most patients want a smile that complements the rest of their face and they understand that feeling confident in your smile doesn’t stop at your teeth. Fillers, particularly those in the lips and nasolabial folds (around the nose and mouth), can help treat the asymmetrical and gummy appearance of teeth and enhance patients' smiles.

What can therapeutic fillers do for me?

Fillers can improve the shape of your face and the texture of your skin in many different ways. Dr. Massaband uses them to:

  • Provides symmetrical smile and harmonious lip line in relation to oral cavity and teeth
  • Minimize vertical lip lines to treat gummy smile
  • Improve facial symmetry around teeth
  • Treat deep nasolabial folds due to sun damage, illness and other medical conditions
  • Reduce nasolabial wrinkles which causes asymmetrical lip position

What happens when I get therapeutic fillers?

It’s important to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Massaband prior to your treatment to determine the right fillers and injection sites that can help you achieve the results you want. At your injection visit, the team uses a topical anesthetic on your skin to minimize discomfort. Some fillers also contain a mild anesthetic, such as lidocaine, to reduce pain during the treatment. Finally, Dr. Massaband injects a precise amount of the filler into your skin. Because of their gel-like nature, fillers produce instant results that you can see right away. Minor bruising and swelling are normal reactions to fillers, but they should subside over the coming days.

How long will fillers last?

Fillers can last anywhere from six to 12 months — some even take more than two years to wear off. Similar to Botox, you should start to notice subtle volume loss around the midpoint of your filler’s duration.

Fortunately, you can always return to Dr. Massaband and her team for touch-up treatments to help maintain your balanced, harmonious and natural-looking results.
