Do you wish to smooth your fine lines and facial wrinkles, but don’t want to undergo extensive surgeries? Could your lips use a natural-looking plump? Check out Juvéderm!
Juvéderm is a dermal filler that uses a hyaluronic acid based gel to add volume to your lips or skin. This filler can target lines and wrinkles around your mouth, nasolabial folds, furrow lines between your brows and depressed scars. This FDA-approved gel is injected underneath the skin to plump up volume and provide a more even, smooth skin texture. As for your lips, this solution can provide a non-surgical solution to natural-looking, fuller lips.
Am I a good candidate?
If you have facial wrinkles or areas of your skin that you wish to add natural-looking volume for a more even tone, Juvéderm may be right for you. Patients who qualify for Juvéderm injections are also those seeking natural looking enhancements to the lips. You must also be in good health and a non-smoker.
How are Juvéderm injections performed?
Your Juvéderm treatment will vary based on the depth of scarring or imperfections and the number of areas that need to be treated. To minimize pain, Dr. Basile will first apply a lidocaine gel to numb and block your nerves. Some patients report minor stinging when first injected, but it is a nearly painless process. Once the injection of hyaluronic acid is introduced, it will attract water molecules and plump up the skin to even out your unwanted wrinkles.
Results and Recovery
Depending on your average facial muscle movement, Juvéderm can last anywhere from 9-12 months. Between 1-2 weeks after your injections, your swelling and bruising will subside. There is no scarring with Juvederm and results can be seen almost immediately!
