"Life is short, buy the lips."
Have you heard of Hyaluronic Acid (HA)? This naturally occurring molecule found throughout the body has a primary function of supporting and hydrating the skin. As we age, the HA in our body decreases and the volume in our face is lost. Juvederm, an injectable filler solution, is made of HA and restores the HA in our skin.
Here at Body by Design Aesthetics, we use Juvederm products for our dermal fillers. Most filler treatments take approximately 15 minutes and are done by using a fine needle used to inject gel into the treatment area. Results last 6-18 months, depending on the type of filler used and client metabolism. We apply a lidocaine/tetracaine topical numbing ointment before each treatment to minimize any discomfort and use products that are formulated with lidocaine to keep our clients completely comfortable.
Juvederm is ideal for the following areas:
Lips - to add volume and smooth lines around lips
Cheeks - to add volume, smooth, and lift sagging skin
Smile lines – to smooth the vertical lines running from nose to mouth
Marionette lines – to smooth the vertical lines/folds that run from mouth down towards the jaw
Vertical lip lines – to smooth the lines directly above the lip that can occur from ordinary muscle movement, excessive smoking or exposure to sun
We don’t expect you to know the amount or exact subtype of Juvederm to use. Our certified nurse injectors are experts when it comes to dermal fillers and can offer you advice as to what they believe is best.
