Lip Rejuvenation and Enhancement

Full lips with a defined border are a feature of youth. As we age, natural substances such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid that give skin structure and fullness gradually decrease. This results in our lips and the surrounding area being vulnerable to loss of fullness. Whether your lips were naturally thin or full, dermal fillers can be used to enhance lip shape or restore lost fullness.

 

What is Juvederm?

 

Juvederm is an injectable dermal filler used by Dr. Man to refresh your appearance. Using hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar found in your body, Juvederm combines with the water in your skin to restore lost fullness, and subtly enhance lips. The smooth formulation of Juvederm provides results that look and feel very natural.

 

 

What can I expect from a treatment?

 

Treatment can generally be performed in as little as 30 minutes with minimal recovery or downtime. The filler contains pain-reducing lidocaine, so you can also enjoy greater comfort during treatment. Most patients require only one syringe to achieve optimal results. Juvederm is clinically proven to last up to 6-9 months. Best of all, you can see visible results instantly after your treatment.

 

 

Consultation

 

Please feel free to schedule a consultation because making the decision to refresh or enhance your lips deserves proper contemplation. Dr. Man will examine your lips during the appointment. It is an opportunity for you to ask questions about the procedure and discuss your goals and expectations. Risks and benefits of the procedure will also be discussed.

 

Treatment Day

 

Treatment is quick and easy

Treatment can be the same day as your consultation. Dr. Man will inject the filler under your skin with a fine needle to restore fullness in your lips. Following injection, the lips will be gently massaged.

 

Recovery time is quick too

There is minimal downtime involved after. Most people can resume normal activities immediately. Your dentist will advise you on your aftercare. You will be advised to avoid the sun as well as cold temperatures, saunas and steam rooms for the first 5 days. Some people experience temporary injection-related reactions such as redness, itching at the treatment site, pain, firmness, swelling, and bumps. Studies have shown that these reactions are usually mild to moderate in nature and clear up on their own in 7 days or less.

 

Treatment is reversible

Juvederm is made from a naturally occurring substance in your body. The treatment is reversible - if you don’t like the results, speak to your dentist about returning to your pre-filler appearance
