Details for Case #12018
This 44-year-old female wanted a more “youthful” mouth. She thought her lips were too thin, and she didn’t like the vertical “smoker’s lines” around her lips. She knew she wanted dermal filler injections, but she was unsure of which product to choose. After some online research, she contacted the Los Angeles plastic surgery office of Marina Plastic Surgery Associates.
During her consultation, she explained that she had noticed her lips “deflating” and the wrinkles around her mouth becoming more pronounced. She asked about the various dermal fillers available and was introduced to JUVÉDERM® in Los Angeles . She was told that a new version of JUVÉDERM called JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC could give her the full, youthful lips she wanted as well as reduce the wrinkles around her mouth, so she made an appointment for the procedure.
Only 1 syringe of JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC was needed to improve her mouth and lips. Because the new formula contains a pain relieving agent, anesthetic is not necessary and the treatment is very comfortable. Her photo shows a great improvement in her lip contour, and the vertical lip lines are much less noticeable.
