When was the last time you looked at your lips and fell in love? If the answer isn’t “today,” then you may be selling yourself short. Whether we’re headed to the office or out on the town, we all want to feel confident and self-assured, but when you’re less than thrilled with the volume and shape of your lips it can be hard to shift the focus. To help your outer image match your inner one, maybe it’s time you thought about lip augmentation treatment with Juvederm®.
A Naturally Stunning Smile Through Science
For some people, aesthetics is about gifting themselves the attributes Mother Nature accidentally omitted. For others, fillers are a way to restore the natural contours of youth, filling out the skin where necessary and reshaping it as needed. Each patient’s motivation is different, but with one common thread: beautiful results. Juvederm® can volumize lips that have thinned and flattened with age, lift a smile that has begun to droop, and decrease the appearance of wrinkles formed on the lips and around the lip line. It’s a chance to recapture the person you see in old photographs or influence who you’ll see in the mirror in the future.
How Juvederm® Works
Juvederm® comes in several formulas, each one uniquely suited for a specific purpose. Juvederm®, which is ideal for your lip area (and your cheeks, too!), is an FDA-approved injectable gel designed to rectify age-related volume loss. The main active ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a substance that already occurs naturally in your skin but starts to deplete as you age. A few quick injections – the entire appointment is generally less than one hour long – and you’re on your way with only mild tenderness and some possible slight swelling or bruising as side effects. Soon, though, you’ll see results, and then nothing will stop you from smiling.
A Look That Lasts
When you plump up your lips with Juvederm®, you’re treating yourself to a body boost that’s far beyond fleeting. While some injectable fillers dissipate quickly and require frequent touch-ups in order to ensure continued results, the effects of Juvederm® can last up to an entire year. In fact, an impressive 78% of surveyed patients state that they were satisfied with both the look and feel of their lips a full 12 months after treatment.
Even more exciting is the fact that patients who opted for retreatment after a year needed fewer products to achieve a similar effect. Curious to see what Juvederm® lips might look like on you?
