Smooth Out Your Lip Lines with JUVÉDERM®
Lines around the lips and mouth can be caused by years’ worth of facial expressions, smoking, and even drinking through straws. When lip lines do begin to appear, many men and women feel self-conscious and often look older than they actually are. One of the most convenient and effective solutions for smoothing out smoker’s lines and lip lines is the use of injectable dermal fillers, like JUVÉDERM®. At JPO Aesthetics in Palm Springs, CA, Dr. Jeffrey Patrick Olson and our experienced team of cosmetic injectors help patients restore their confidence and their looks with JUVÉDERM filler injections. Here, we’ll explore how JUVÉDERM for lip lines works, including what results are possible and how long they may last.
What causes lip lines?
Lines around the lips and mouth are often associated with smoking and other behaviors – earning them the nickname smoker’s lines – but they can happen to anyone as a result of the natural breakdown of collagen and elastin that occurs with age. Common complaints from patients with lip lines include looking older than they actually are and having lipstick that bleeds into the wrinkles around the mouth.
How can lip lines be fixed?
Injectable dermal fillers are a fantastic option for minimizing lines around the lips and mouth. One of the most popular choices for lip line fillers is JUVÉDERM, which contains hyaluronic acid (HA) that mimics the body’s naturally occurring HA. With a variety of products in the JUVÉDERM collection, patients can treat a wide range of concerns, including those involving areas of delicate skin – like lip lines and under-eye circles.
How do JUVÉDERM injections work for smoker’s lines?
Prior to JUVÉDERM treatment, a topical numbing agent will be applied to the target area to minimize any discomfort you may feel during the injections. JUVÉDERM also contains a mild local anesthetic for added comfort during treatment. After a thorough consultation and discussion of your specific concerns and goals, the JUVÉDERM filler will be carefully and strategically injected into your lips lines, giving you an almost instantly smoother and more youthful appearance.
How long does JUVÉDERM last around the mouth?
Because the mouth is used for so many facial expressions and behaviors – like talking, smiling, and eating – the filler may break down slightly faster than it would in other areas. Still, most patients can expect their JUVÉDERM lip line fillers to last for at least 9 – 12 months before repeat injections may be needed.
Where else can JUVÉDERM be used?
Common cosmetic complaints that can be improved or even reversed with JUVÉDERM fillers include:
- Thin lips
- Sunken circles under the eyes
- Hollow cheeks
- Nasolabial folds
- Lip lines/smoker’s lines
During your initial consultation for dermal fillers in Palm Springs, CA, Dr. Olson will evaluate your areas of concern, discuss all of your available options in detail, and recommend a customized injectable treatment plan that best meets your needs and helps you achieve your ultimate aesthetic goals.
