Juvederm: Rediscover Youthful Radiance

No one wants to look old, but, sadly, lines and wrinkles that form around the nose and mouth can add years to a person’s appearance. Vertical lines around the lips, nasolabial folds (from the nose to the mouth corners), and marionette lines (from the mouth corners to the chin) are common but very visible signs of aging.

Fortunately, in the right hands, non-invasive dermal fillers make it possible to look younger and longer without surgery. Lip injections can fill in lines and depressions around the nose and mouth that make the face look older – and they can also be used to give you plumper, fuller lips.

What Is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a group of cosmetic dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid, a natural component of the skin, the presence of which begins to decrease over time. Hyaluronic acid is a biodegradable substance that can be broken down by the body naturally and yet produces long-lasting results. Our Santa Barbara facial fillers add volume and deliver hydration, causing the skin to appear smoother and suppler. They can be used to fill in depressions, such as lines and wrinkles, to give the face more youthful contours, and for the popular cosmetic procedure of lip injections in Santa Barbara, Ventura & Oxnard.

Other Juvederm Benefits

Juvederm® XC is also a good choice for lip augmentation Santa Barbara. This product can be used to fill in the lip itself and the perioral area (the tissue around the mouth) for fuller, plumper, more youthful looking lips.

Voluma®, the latest Juvederm dermal filler, is designed to restore volume in larger areas of the face. Loss of volume in the cheeks over time can give the face a hollowed, gaunt appearance. By plumping up the cheeks, Juvederm Voluma® can give the face more youthful contours. It can also be used to give the jaw line a firmer shape.

Our Ventura Juvederm injections cause minimal discomfort and down time. However, some swelling and bruising is to be expected, which could last up to seven days. Many of our patients are able to resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure.

Dr. Morrissette is the best! I've been going to him for Botox for the last couple of years and I am so thankful for the magic he has worked on my face. People stop me ALL THE TIME and ask how old I am because they can't believe I'm old enough to have kids that are their age or be the owner of my business. When I tell them it's Botox they can't believe it, they think it looks so natural. He is a perfectionist and it shows! Last visit I also had him do lip injections. It was so easy and I'm obsessed with the results! I can't believe how natural they look while still adding a new fullness. I LOVE IT! He used Juvederm and it was painless and fast. I love the staff and the office is gorgeous! Bright and lovely inside! His surgical team is sweet, funny and well informed. They always answer all of my questions and know how to make me feel relaxed and at ease.

Lip Injections

The lips are one of the most alluring facial features. Plump, attractive lips can be a dramatic enhancement of your natural beauty. If you inherited less full lips, or they are thinning due to the natural aging process, lip injections can provide a non-surgical option for lip enhancement for a full, voluptuous pout. Dr. Michael Morrissette’s understanding of facial beauty and balance makes him the best choice for lip enhancement.

What are Lip Injections?

Lip injections are a simple, easy way to receive a more appealing pout – when performed correctly. Through a series of carefully placed injections, Dr. Morrissette can sculpt plumper, more youthful lips. Thinning lips and smile lines can add years to your appearance, but modern aesthetics makes it possible to create more natural allure. When you are seeking to enhance the size, shape, and overall look of your lips or want to reduce and smooth lip lines, Dr. Morrissette can help.

What are the Benefits of Lip Injections?

Lip injections can do wonders to heighten the beauty of your facial features. There is a delicate balance that should exist between the upper and lower lip, with the lower lip being slightly more prominent providing a natural pout. Lip injections can not only enhance lip size, but can achieve the following: Enhance small lips, correct lip asymmetry, smooth lip lines and help create a more appealing overall facial look

What are the Best Dermal Fillers to Use for Lip Injections?

Dr. Morrissette uses Juvéderm injectables for lip augmentation. These hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers work with the natural building blocks of your own skin to plump lips and reduce lines and wrinkles around your mouth. Hyaluronic acid has an amazing capacity to attract moisture, providing natural-looking volume and fullness. Juvéderm Ultra XC brings natural-looking lip volume, and Juvéderm Volbella creates a subtler enhancement, and works to soften the appearance of vertical lip lines.

How Does Hyaluronic Acid Work?

Hyaluronic acid is an almost miraculous part of you’re the structure of your natural skin. It works to deliver nutrients, hydrate, and add cushion. Unfortunately, with age, the body stops producing as much HA. The Juvéderm line of HA lip fillers are made from non-animal, stabilized hyaluronic acids, and are the filler of choice for a subtle lip enhancement that looks and feels soft, plump, and natural.

What Can I Expect During my Lip Injection Procedure?

Lip enhancement is performed in the comfort of our comfortable Ventura offices, where our entire staff is focused upon providing the most positive patient experience. Dr. Morrissette will perform a series of tiny, strategically-placed injections to your lips to add volume and fullness. A topical numbing cream may be applied to ensure your complete comfort during the procedure. Your non-surgical lip augmentation can be performed in less than 30 minutes, easy to fit into a busy schedule. Your friends may not know exactly what is different about your look, but will notice you look younger, renewed, and more attractive.

What is the Recovery Like?

Since lip injections are a minimally-invasive procedure, there is no downtime required following lip enhancement. You may experience some mild swelling or bruising at the injection site. This is temporary and should subside within a few days. You should avoid alcohol, vigorous exercise, or any pressure on your lips (sorry, no kissing) for 24 hours following lip injections to allow the filler to settle into place.
