Lips that are naturally thin or which thin out with time distract from other pleasing contours of the face. So do wrinkles and lines around the mouth and loss of fullness in the cheeks. You can overcome changes in facial shape and heavy lines and wrinkles that make you look older than you feel and act.
The answer? It could be Juvederm XC, Juvederm Ultra XC or Juvederm Voluma XC, a line of FDA-approved injectable gels which smooth wrinkles and add volume to sagging skin. The physicians at Affiliated Dermatologists & Dermatologic Surgeons in Mt. Arlington, Liberty Corner, Bridgewater and Morristown, NJ offer this FDA-approved pharmaceutical grade volumizer to qualified patients over the age of 21.
What is Juvederm?
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons says that the key ingredient in Juvederm, hyaluronic acid, is a highly biocompatible substance naturally found around your eyes and in the connective tissues of your body. Besides providing skin elasticity lost over time and a cushioning effect to sagging skin, hyaluronic acid is used by arthritis and orthopedic specialists to relieve joint pain.
Prepared as Juvederm, hyaluronic augments thin lips, smooths "parentheses" lines around the mouth and adds youthful volume to the cheeks. It actually cushions these areas, say plastic surgeons and dermatologists. Effects are not permanent, but they are long lasting--up to 2 years for Juvederm Voluma XC applied to the cheeks.
While every medical procedure carries a risk of side effects, Juvederm's are minimal, with injection site swelling, tenderness and bruising lasting 2 to 4 weeks after treatment. Many individuals qualify for treatment. However, pregnant and lactating women must postpone Juvederm treatment. Additionally, people allergic to lidocaine may not receive these injections as lidocaine is the anaesthetic contained in the gel to ease discomfort during injection.
