Both body contouring procedures—liposuction and a tummy tuck are two different approaches to a slimmer midsection.

Rejuvenate Your Look with Juvéderm Lip Enhancement

Rejuvenate Your Look with Juvéderm Lip Enhancement

If you’re looking to rejuvenate your look for spring and have always wanted fuller lips, talk to us about the benefits of Juvéderm. This lip enhancement filler can plump up the lips and improve the appearance of wrinkles to give you a more youthful look. It’s still one of the most popular fillers available and is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler for treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.


Is Juvéderm Right for Me?

If you have considered a lip augmentation procedure in the past, but aren’t comfortable with the idea of undergoing surgery to get lip implants, Juvéderm may be the best non-surgical option for you. This filler only takes a few minutes to administer and can plump up the lips immediately. We can improve the shape of your lips and increase the size of the upper or lower lip with a simple injection.

Lip enhancement with fillers must be performed by an experienced injector, or there is a high risk of over-injection and unnatural-looking results. We can inject a very small amount of the filler to create more defined lips and enhance the inner or outer edges of the lips. Areas that respond well to this non-surgical treatment include the cupid’s bow (area right on top of the midline of the lips), the vermillion border (area that borders the lips), philtrum (the area right above the lips), and the oral commissure (outer corners of the lips). We can determine exactly which areas need to be enhanced during your consultation.

Benefits of Lip Enhancement with Juvéderm

Whether you have thinning lips or have always been self-conscious about the size and shape of your lips, treatment with Juvéderm can enhance your look. Results last for several months and you can come back to our office for touch-up treatments. Since Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid filler, based from a compound that is already present in the body, your body will slowly start to absorb the gel without any allergic reactions. We will make sure we administer just the right amount of this filler in and around the delicate lip area so that you can achieve the ideal results.

Treat Unwanted Body Hair with Laser Treatments

Whether you are always self-conscious about hair under the arms, on your legs, or around your bikini line, we can treat unwanted body hair with laser hair removal treatments. Laser hair removal is a long-term solution for unwanted hair growth, and can reduce and refine the appearance of hair tremendously on the legs, chest, underarms, back, and other parts of the body. It is a safe and comfortable procedure that can help you maintain smooth, beautiful skin for life! You can say goodbye to waxing and shaving for good with a course of treatments.

Key Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

With the warm-weather season right around the corner, now is a great time to start taking care of your skin and prepare for the season with a series of laser hair removal treatments. We need to administer treatments every four to six weeks to slow down and stop the growth cycle. The laser is simply passed over the skin and the light penetrates the pigment in the body hair to stop follicle growth. This is a relatively simple process and you may only experience some slight redness after your session.

Most patients start to see noticeable results after a few treatments and results vary depending on how much hair you have in a particular area. We can prepare a custom treatment plan for you during your consultation.
