Most of us wouldn’t back-up and do it all over again, given the option. After all, with age comes wisdom, experience and a great sense of fulfillment. Along the way, we experience the joys and pains of life that eventually define us. Given the option to erase some of those definitions on our face, however, is something we can enthusiastically seek and painlessly relish in!
Smoothing out the creases comfortably, Juvederm can highlight that smile hiding on the inside of your nose and corners of your mouth (the parentheses), by smoothing the creases and bringing your smile out to a beautiful exclamation point!
WHAT ARE “PARENTHESES”?
The deep lines and folds around your nose and mouth become enhanced by time, sunlight and other factors leaving a set of “parentheses.” This is caused by a reduction in the amount of hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic Acid and other natural properties are those that give your youthful skin its structure and volume.
As one of the most effective treatments for moderate to severe wrinkles and lines, Juvederm XC boasts its status as one of the best dermal fillers in the US. With just one treatment of Juvederm, you can make those lines and folds around your nose and mouth disappear for up to one year!
THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF WRINKLES: STATIC AND DYNAMIC.
Static Wrinkles – As our skin’s natural substances, such as collagen and hyaluronic acid diminish over time, the structure and volume of our face also decreases.
Dynamic Wrinkles – Also through the years, the contractions of the muscles in our facial expressions, such as smiling and frowning, leave permanent markers we call wrinkles and folds.
ERASE THE PARENTHESES – JUVEDERM XC TREATMENT AREAS
- Corner of the Mouth Lines
- Vertical Lip Lines
- Marionette Lines
- Parentheses Lines (Smile Lines)
There are many options out there to help eliminate some of the definitions on our face. When creams, microdermabrasions or laser treatments no longer do the trick, Juvederm, which is made from a form of HA, can eliminate moderate to severe wrinkles with just one treatment.
HOW DOES JUVEDERM WORK?
By adding volume through replenishing the HA in your skin, Juvederm smooth’s away wrinkles and folds. Juvederm XC, using a technology called HYLACROSS, boasts its smooth-gel properties as one of the first HA fillers that’s FDA approved to last for up to one year following just one treatment.
HOW SOON DOES JUVEDERM WORK?
Instantly! JUVEDERM XC injectable gel is done in-office with very little downtime. Your JUVEDERM XC professional eases the injection under your skin, instantly smoothing out the folds and wrinkles. It’s that easy!

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF JUVEDERM® IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
Every individual is different, so setting up a consultation visit to communicate your needs is important. Your practitioner will want to discuss the wrinkles and folds you would like to diminish as well as the fullness of your lips and whether other treatments would be needed to achieve the desired results for your overall appearance.
Every patient’s skin is unique and treatments are guided by that fact. After being given advice by our professionals, the patient should form treatment goals that are realistic.
It is important not to take Aspirin or other blood thinning pills before surgery. It is also noted that drinking alcohol before or after surgery is never recommended. Applying cold ice packs to reduce swelling as well as staying rested will guarantee a successful outcome.
