Fuller, More Defined Lips Can Be Yours With Juvéderm™
- Posted on: Apr 30 2016
Those fully defined, kissable lips which are so popular are achievable in our office with a non-surgical procedure using Juvéderm™, the “next generation” of facial fillers. Juvéderm™ is also effective in minimizing fine “smile lines” and deeper “parentheses” (nasolabial folds) that run from the bottom of the nose to the sides of the mouth.
How does Juvéderm™ work?
- Juvéderm™ is made with hyaluronic acid, a substance which naturally occurs in your body. This makes it easily accepted and unlikely to cause an adverse reaction. Juvéderm™ is proven safe and effective.
- The lip enhancement procedure is done using a nerve blocker anesthetic, similar to a dental anesthetic, which numbs the lips and ensures that you are relaxed and comfortable before the actual procedure begins. This gentle procedure takes about 15 minutes; the results typically last about six to nine months.
- Following the procedure, you can return to your normal activities and work schedule immediately. There can be some mild bruising that may last a few days but can be easily camouflaged.
Who is the ideal Juvéderm™ candidate?
- The ideal candidate for Juvéderm™ lip enhancement is the patient who wishes to minimize the appearance of fine lines around their mouth, restore a more youthful appearance and enhance the appearance and fullness of their lips. If you are pregnant or nursing, it is best to wait.
As with any cosmetic procedure, it is important to clarify your expectations. If you decide a lip enhancement procedure is for you, discuss your “plumping” expectations with us. We strive to ensure that you achieve the look you want. An excellent rule of thumb is “less is more.” Maintaining the normal anatomy of the lips with subtle injections results in naturally appearing, plumper lips.
We specialize in the use of Juvéderm™ injectable fillers. We are confident that you will be delighted with the results. Call to schedule an appointment, today, and spring into summer with plump, kissable lips: 630-818-7546.
