Juvederm® is an injectable cosmetic treatment known as a dermal filler. It can be used to fill in lines, wrinkles and folds in the skin of the face. It is also effective in plumping up the lips, making it a very versatile treatment.
Thin and wrinkled lips can make you look older and can even give you a stern or unhappy appearance. Fortunately, the effects of time can be corrected through the use of this non-invasive and convenient procedure. If you want to do something about your thin lips, we encourage you to learn more about how you can enhance your appearance with Juvederm®.
Summary of Juvederm® for Lips
The active ingredient in Juvederm® is hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that provides cushioning and elasticity to the skin. The unique Hylacross technology of Juvederm® ensures that patients receive the smoothest and most consistent results possible. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural substance, rather than synthetic, there is very little need to worry about experiencing an allergic reaction. Juvederm® contains lidocaine, a numbing agent, in order to provide maximum comfort during the procedure.
Types of Juvederm®
Juvederm® offers two different formulas for even greater versatility in treatment options. The original formula is preferred to treat moderate to severe lines and a loss of volume in the lips. A new, thicker gel formula is ideal for filling in deeper crevices, plumping lips in a way that looks most natural. Lost volume can be effectively returned with this formula.
What to Expect
Maintenance treatments will be necessary, though the average patient can expect to see results lasting approximately nine months. Many patients prefer this temporary method of lip enhancement over surgery in order to be sure that they are satisfied with their new look and to avoid the downtime of a more invasive procedure. After these treatments, most patients are free to go about their normal everyday activities.
