Benefits of Juvederm® for Plumper LipsPublished on January 16, 2019 by Raymond Lee
Juvederm® is one of the most popular facial fillers on the market. This hyaluronic acid filler is the only one approved by the FDA to last up to a year, offering a long-lasting, smooth fix for wrinkles and facial folds. It is a highly effective, non-surgical option for reducing wrinkles around the lips and mouth, which can offer patients a glowing and more youthful look.
This facial filler contains lidocaine, which offers localized pain relief. With the XC formula, the patient receives an injection that is gentle and comfortable, allowing them to feel at ease during and after treatment.
Smooth, Natural Looking Results
Juvederm® contains a gel that is of a smooth consistency. Unlike other hyaluronic acid-containing fillers created with a granular gel, this option has a very smooth feel, and offers results that are particularly natural. For many patients, there’s no better method for lip enhancement.
While some dermal fillers take a while to see results, patients using Juvederm® can see nearly instant improvement when affected areas are treated. Most patients need only one treatment to achieve a desirable volume increase around the lips.
Procedure is Brief
Juvederm® treatment can be performed in less than 15 minutes in some cases, but treatment time depends on the area to be treated. For various patients, downtime is minimal, and normal activities can be resumed the same day.
Reversible and Biodegradable
Another significant advantage of this treatment is that it’s completely reversible. If a patient is not satisfied with his or her results, they can go back to their previous appearance. Today’s hyaluronic acid-based fillers are fully biodegradable, which means the gel gradually breaks down and eventually disappears.
Though facial fillers aren’t right for everyone, many patients who opt for treatment are satisfied and have been able to regain a more youthful appearance. To learn more about Juvederm® , schedule an appointment with Dr. Lee and Tina. During the consultation, they can help you determine the best available options for treating the lips and mouth.
