WHAT MAKES JUVÉDERM® UNIQUE?
Juvéderm® is the ONLY hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA approved to last up to 1 year. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in the human body that attracts water and plays a role in firming the skin.
Juvéderm® has a unique manufacturing process that provides a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid for long-lasting results. Its smooth consistency creates more natural, youthful fullness.
WHAT IS LIP AUGMENTATION?
Dr. Christine‘s goal is to naturally enhance your lips. In less than 30 minutes, Juvéderm® can be used to instantly add volume to the lip area, creating a natural, plump and pouty look. Your lips remain soft, kissable and natural to the touch.
WHAT IS LIP REJUVENATION?
Juvéderm® offers immediate correction of wrinkles bordering the lips by filling in the vertical lines that form around the upper and lower lip.
HOW MUCH JUVÉDERM® WILL I NEED?
Dr. Christine offers a complementary consultation to assess how much Juvéderm® will be needed to achieve your desired goal. During your consultation, Dr. Christine will provide the product education needed to allow you to make the right decision for you. Together, you and the Doctor will formulate a treatment plan/program to allow you to age in a natural and graceful manner, looking your absolute best.
A few precautions should be taken before any injections. Avoid using aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St. John’s Wort, or high doses of vitamin E supplements prior to treatment. These medications may increase the risk of bruising or bleeding at the injection site. Also, if you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, Dr. Christine may prescribe a medication to minimize recurrence
IS THERE A RECOVERY PERIOD?
There’s no recovery time needed. As Dr. Christine approaches Juvéderm® treatments in a conservative manner, her patients rarely experience side effects.
Side effects are not permanent. If the patient were to experience side effects, common side effects following injection are pain/redness from injection, minimal swelling, which usually subsides in 24 to 36 hours and although infrequent; there may also be some discomfort and bruising. Any discomfort can be managed with medications. Normal activities can be resumed immediately; however, patients are advised to stay out of the sun.
