You have no doubt heard or read about cosmetic lip injections. They are one of the most requested non-surgical cosmetic procedures, today. If you have small, thin lips, you may have considered filler injections…and you may want to know more. If so, read on!
Dr. Quintana uses Juvederm® injectable gels…known as the “next generation” of facial fillers…to provide her clients with plumper, fuller lips.
And as an additional benefit, Juvederm® is effective in minimizing fine “smile lines” and deeper “parentheses” lines (nasolabial folds) around the nose and the sides of the mouth.
- Juvederm® is made with hyaluronic acid, a substance which naturally occurs in our bodies. This makes it easily accepted and unlikely to cause an adverse reaction. It is FDA approved and is safe and effective.
- A Juvederm® procedure is done using a nerve blocker anesthetic, similar to a dental anesthetic, which numbs your lips and ensures that you are relaxed and comfortable before the procedure begins.
- The procedure is gentle and takes about 15 minutes. The results typically last about six to nine months.
- Following a Juvederm® procedure, you can return to your normal activities and work schedule immediately. There may be some mild bruising that may last a few days but can be easily camouflaged with make-up.
Do you want to minimize the appearance of fine lines around your mouth, restore a more youthful appearance and enhance the appearance and fullness of your lips? If so, you would be an ideal Juvederm® candidate.
For the most optimum results, it is important to clarify your goals and discuss your expectations with Dr. Quintana. She will strive to ensure that you achieve the natural look you want. A good rule of thumb for lip enhancement is “less is more.”
Dr. Quintana specializes in the use of Juvederm® for the treatment of fine lines, wrinkles, and lip enhancement. She is confident that you will be delighted with the results Juvederm® provides.
