Contact us today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Gregg Reger and our medical team near Conroe and find out if you are a candidate for non-surgical lip enhancement.
What Causes Thin Lips?
Collagen is a protein in the skin that is responsible for maintaining structure and strength. As the skin ages, it is natural for collagen production to decrease, resulting in a loss of shape. This can result in fine lines and wrinkles in the face and thin lips. While not a cause for medical concern, thin lips can take attention away from your face. At Reger Vein and Skin Specialists, we can plump and shape your lips with non-surgical rejuvenation treatments.
Juvederm® for Non-Surgical Lip Enhancement
A trusted name in aesthetic skin rejuvenation,Juvederm® is used worldwide for the correction of age-related volume loss around the nose and mouth. This unique formulation of hyaluronic acid can also be used to subtly enhance thin lips for fast, convenient results that are completely customizable to the patient.
Dr. Reger and our medical team are experienced in the use of dermal fillers to combat visible signs of aging and will help rejuvenate your appearance without compromising your natural beauty or facial expressions. In some instances, Juvederm® injectables can also be paired with other treatments for optimal results. These options can be discussed during your consultation.
When Will I See Results?
Once the hyaluronic acid formulation of Juvederm® is injected below the skin of the lips, it binds with water and begins to create immediate results that can last for several months with optimal treatment. Although this dermal filler will eventually be absorbed by the body, creating a treatment plan can help manage thin lips and other visible signs of aging over the long term.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Injectable treatments can sometimes cause slight bruising, swelling, redness, and itching at injection sites, but these typically fade after a day or so. Juvederm® and dermal fillers typically carry no contraindications for patients who qualify. The best way to find out if this non-surgical lip enhancement treatment is for you is to schedule a consultation with our medical team and have your individual condition evaluated.
Results may vary, and multiple sessions may be required in order to achieve your desired aesthetic. Dr. Reger and our medical team will let you know what you can expect.
