How can Juvederm be used on the lips of patients?
Patients who want to make positive changes to their face will often come to Dr. Downie to ask about injections and dermal fillers such as Botox or Juvederm. These injectables were created to address fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and volume in various areas of the face. While Botox is a medication that is used to reduce movement of the injected muscle, Juvederm is dermal filler that can add volume to an area. One area that patients often use Juvederm is on the lips. New York Metropolitan residents who struggle with thin lips can use Juvederm to plump them up and add natural-looking volume to them.
Juvederm is dermal filler that is safe and effective in adding volume to the lips. However, if done incorrectly, the augmentation of the lip line can appear unnatural. Dr. Downie is a board certified dermatologist who has several years of experience helping thousands of patients improve their looks through image Dermatology®. She has injected herself to keep her face looking young and fresh. A simple consultation with Dr. Downie before the treatment can help patients determine whether Juvederm is right for them.
Juvederm is made from hyaluronic acid, which can help boost collagen production. It is injected into the area being addressed to provide amazing results. These results can last several months before another injection is needed to maintain the appearance. Periodic injections can keep the look, and appointments can be scheduled in advance.
Dr. Downie is proud to offer a large line of dermal fillers and injectable treatments, including Botox, Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, Radiesse, and Sculptra. Along with her other full service dermatological treatments such as Fraxel resurfacing laser, chemical peels, fat melting with the Exilis, laser hair removal, and skin cancer surgery, she is able to help patients of all ages improve their skin and look and feel better about themselves.
