JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel Fillers
Some people simply have naturally thin lips and just want to achieve a fuller appearance. Other people have noticed their lips thinning over time and may also have seen vertical lip lines become more noticeable. Whatever your unique needs are when it comes to your lips, the JUVÉDERM® collection may be able to help.
If your skin doesn’t have the firmness and elasticity that you want, a dermal filler is a good solution. Made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring acid that binds to water, these fillers smooth out your skin and add volume in this safe and non-surgical procedure.
This treatment is perfect if you’re looking for plump, smooth skin to complement your facial features and remove lines.
The treatment begins with a consultation and analysis with your therapist, to assess your skin type and your requirements.
Then, a numbing cream is applied to the target area if necessary.
The filler is carefully injected into your skin and then massaged for an even distribution.
This dermal filler gives you pumped-up skin with a smooth appearance. The following areas can be treated: lips, laugh lines, smoker lines.
The fillers are proven to last up to 1 year with optimal treatment. Results may vary.
