Injectable Fillers Before & Afters Case #12362
This young woman wanted to plump her lips to make them look more hydrated and wanted to smooth some of the lines on her lips, but did not want to look like a fish or duck after her treatment. She wanted to make sure that whoever performed her treatment would have a great deal of experience selecting the right non-surgical treatment for patients. After researching more about her Los Angeles skin care options, she decided to contact Marina Plastic Surgery Associates.
During her consultation, she explained to her surgeon that she didn't want to increase the general size or shape of her lips, just give them a little extra volume. He understood completely and explained that with a single treatment of JUVÉDERM®, a popular injectable lip treatment, she would see the volume increase without making her lips look unnatural. JUVÉDERM works by utilizing a naturally-occurring chemical in the human body, hyaluronic acid, that reacts with the water in you skin to add natural-looking volume where you need it. With careful and well-placed injection, she would see the results she wanted.
As her "after" photos show, the increase is very slight, but still noticeable. Her lips look fuller and supple after the treatment without looking overly-large or unnatural. She was thrilled with the results and was grateful that her Los Angeles plastic surgeon took the time to understand her goals.
