How Can I Get Rid of My Lip Lines?

Featured Image

In our younger years, our bodies retain naturally occurring substances that keep our skin firm, smooth, and vibrant. As we age and environmental stressors wreak havoc on our bodies, the skin begins to thin, fold, sag, and wrinkle. At JPO Aesthetics, located in Palm Springs, CA, Dr. Jeffrey Patrick Olson and his expert associates offer innovative dermal filler treatments that infuse the skin with those lost, natural substances so that patients can regain that youthful, rejuvenated appearance once again.

How can I get rid of lip lines?

Lip lines, as well as other fine lines and wrinkles along the face, develop as we age and as the skin loses volume and moisture. Dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM® and VOLUMA®, are used to reduce lip lines for up to 12 months.

What is JUVÉDERM?

JUVÉDERM is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that comes in the form of a smooth gel, which is used to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, such as smile lines, lip lines, and marionette lines. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that attracts and binds water to the tissues, maintaining volume and smoothness. Because of regular exposure to UV rays and other environmental stressors, we lose consistent production of hyaluronic acid in our mid-20s. JUVÉDERM makes up for this loss by infusing the skin with hyaluronic acid rooted in JUVÉDERM dermal filler treatments.

What is VOLUMA, and how is it different from JUVÉDERM?

VOLUMA is an FDA-approved dermal filler treatment that provides the midface with a youthful lift and increased volume. Common treatment areas of the cheeks include the apex, the apple, and the hollow. Aside from being an FDA-approved dermal filler, VOLUMA produces beautiful results that can last up to two years before requiring touchups.

Who is an ideal candidate for dermal filler treatments?

Dermal filler treatments at JPO Aesthetics are available to men and women over the age of 21 who are looking for nonsurgical methods to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Dr. Olson performs initial consultations to review the patient’s goals and desired outcomes and helps them determine if dermal filler treatments are the appropriate treatment route in Palm Springs, CA.

What does dermal filler treatment look like?

Dermal filler injections can be completed in as little as one office visit in a private treatment room. The treatment areas are cleansed to administer local anesthesia. The recommended dermal filler brands, such as JUVÉDERM or VOLUMA, are strategically injected into each treatment area. Patients are then sent home with skin care instructions and can resume normal day-to-day activities.

Are there any side effects to look out for during recovery?

Patients commonly experience redness, bruising, swelling, discoloration, and tenderness up to seven days after their dermal filler procedure, which usually resolves on its own. There is always a risk for infection with injectable treatments, so it is essential for patients to communicate with our expert team if certain symptoms do not go away within the first week after treatment. Dr. Olson sends patients home with skin care recommendations, such as avoiding excessive pressure on the treatment area for a few hours, to allow for healing and to optimize results.

How much do JUVÉDERM and VOLUMA cost?

The cost of dermal filler treatments, such as JUVÉDERM and VOLUMA, will vary from patient to patient depending on the number of treatment areas and the number of recommended treatment sessions. Since dermal fillers are considered aesthetic procedures, health insurance policies do not typically cover expenses. Our professional team assists patients in developing a financial plan that fits within their budget so that they can still obtain their desired treatment outcomes.
