Are you unhappy with thin lips, the appearance of lines developing around your mouth, or hollows under your eyes, Juvéderm might be the answer. It can restore volume to your face, giving you a healthy, youthful, attractive appearance. Juvéderm is the perfect complement to BOTOX ® Cosmetic in facial rejuvenation.
What Juvéderm Can Do
Juvéderm is a facial filler. It works by adding or restoring volume to the face. It is commonly used in many areas of the face, including:
- Lip augmentation
- Around the mouth to eliminate parenthesis lines
- Under eye area to eliminate dark hollows or tear trough
- Cheeks to add or restore a youthful, healthy volume
You can choose whether you want one or more areas treated. Typically, facial rejuvenation can be completed in several locations as part of the same procedure.
Your lips are the frame for your smile. They are a memorable feature, and people notice your lips when they meet you and when you talk. Many people are self-conscious about thin lips. Lush, voluptuous lips aren’t just attractive, they give an impression of youth, energy, and vigor.
Traditional lip augmentation procedures were long, involved, and required lengthy recovery. Results were often poor, and complications were common. With Juvéderm, you can get full, sensuous lips with just a simple injection procedure.
Parenthesis lines, also called nasolabial folds, are named because they look like parentheses around your mouth. They are common signs of an aging face. They’re caused by a combination of sinking cheek pads and dynamic action of the mouth.
Juvéderm can fill in these lines so that you look significantly younger. It doesn’t interfere with your ability to laugh or smile. You’ll be you, but more youthful.
Hollows under the Eye and Tear Trough
If you have dark bags under your eye, it’s not usually because the skin is discolored. It’s typically just the shadow caused by a loss of volume under the eye. This might be caused by actual loss of fat, but, more often, it’s related to the sinking of the cheek fat pad. This also results in the formation of a curved line at the top of the cheek called a tear trough. The result is an aged, tired appearance.
Juvéderm fills in these areas to erase signs of aging that can make you look tired, sad, or just older than you wish.
If you are trying to stay fit and healthy, you might exercise, diet, and keep your weight under control. Unfortunately, this can have the side effect that your face looks old, thin, and wan. You end up looking sickly, not healthy. But Juvéderm can solve this problem.
You may not have fat in your cheeks, but Juvéderm can restore the volume there to give you a youthful, healthy appearance.
There are many potential facial fillers available, but Dr. Russell Morrell has chosen Juvéderm because of the benefits it offers. It is:
Juvéderm is a long-lasting filler. The results of your treatment will last for six months to a year, depending on the area injected. Lips tend to have shorter results than cheeks, for example.
Juvéderm is a smooth gel. This makes for a very attractive appearance, and it’s especially important in the lips, where thin skin will betray granularity or texture in the filler. The smooth gel is also shapeable. We can work with it after injection to achieve exactly the desired result.
The smoothness of Juvéderm makes it more comfortable for injection, and we use the version that contains a small amount of lidocaine (local anesthesia) for maximum comfort.
It is made up of hyaluronic acid. This is a moisturizer that occurs naturally in your skin, eyes, joints, and elsewhere. It is very compatible with your body, which naturally breaks it down over time.
