You’re starting to see lines around your mouth that weren’t there in the past. They make you look older than you are.
At Chestnut Wellness in Arkansas City, Kansas, Patrick Blatchford, MD, and the rest of the team specialize in aesthetic treatments that keep your skin smooth and youthful looking. We have answers for your concerns about the lines around your mouth and your thinning lips.
We use injectable fillers to smooth away facial lines, grooves, and wrinkles. Our team examines your skin, consults with you on your goals, and recommends specific treatments that are going to be effective. We’ve selected Juvéderm® as one brand of filler that addresses thin lips and lines around the mouth.
Juvéderm products contain hyaluronic acid. It’s a naturally occurring fluid in your body that acts as a lubricator in your eyes and around your joints. As you age, the amount of hyaluronic acid decreases. Juvéderm injectables contain a medically approved form of hyaluronic acid that keeps your skin soft and smooth. It provides your skin with missing moisture that keeps it plump.
Do your lips look like one thin line when you see yourself in the mirror? If your concern is lips that have lost their youthful fullness, we have a solution for you. If you really want to emphasize your lips and make a dramatic difference, we may recommend Juvéderm Ultra or Ultra Plus injectable to increase plumpness in your lips. The Ultra line also softens lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
If you want a more subtle change in your lips, we may recommend Juvéderm Volbella. We also use Volbella for wrinkles around the mouth.
When you look in the mirror, do you see what are commonly called marionette lines? These facial lines start at the corners of your mouth and run down to your chin. Aging, sun exposure and smoking cause marionette lines. Genes play a role as well.
We may use Juvéderm Vollure or Juvéderm Ultra if you have mild or moderate lines and wrinkles in that area. We may also use Ultra Plus for deeper wrinkles.
You may have developed small vertical lines above your upper lip that run into the lip, making it look wrinkled. Whether you’ve smoked or not, you’ve puckered up your lips frequently enough that lines have started to appear. We may suggest Juvéderm Volbella, which helps smooth out these thin lines. It hydrates the lips and stimulates collagen production.
