Pucker Up for Valentine’s Day

Pucker Up for Valentine’s Day

This Valentine’s Day, treat yourself or a loved one to Juvéderm® lip treatments. Juvéderm® is a family of FDA-approved injectable fillers that can leave patients satisfied for up to one year. If your lips are thin, asymmetrical or could just use a little love, then be sure to schedule an appointment this month to come into Angell Medical Spa for a Juvéderm® treatment.

Get Plump, Kissable Lips with Juvéderm®

Juvéderm® Ultra XC and Juvéderm® Volbella XC are two Juvéderm® products specially designed to add volume and shape to the lips. Juvéderm® products are made with a smooth formulation that adds fullness for surgery-free lip augmentation. Juvéderm® is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance found in the body that keeps skin hydrated, and lidocaine, a numbing agent that makes injections more comfortable.

Appointments take about 30 minutes and are performed in the comfort of our Sacramento office. Using a series of precise injections, Dr. Angell and Jason Peugh, PA-C, will add volume to your lips according to your preferences and beauty goals discussed during an initial consultation.

Juvéderm® Volbella XC can be used to soften the appearance of vertical lips lines, in addition to volumizing lips. If you are bothered by perioral wrinkles above your lips, commonly referred to as “smoker’s lines,” let us know and we will discuss a comprehensive treatment plan for all of your concerns. Juvéderm® products can be used to treat a wide range of facial wrinkles and imperfections, so if you are satisfied with your lip treatments, ask us what else Juvéderm® can do for you.

Easy Recovery, Fast Results

After your quick appointment, results develop quickly. You will notice an immediate difference in the size and shape of your lips, although there may also be some temporary bruising, swelling or numbness. These side effects are mild and typically last three days to one week. We recommend scheduling your Juvéderm® treatments on a Thursday or Friday to allow time for side effects to diminish over the weekend.

The treatment itself is relatively painless, although you may experience some mild discomfort. The lidocaine present in Juvéderm’s® unique formulation numbs the lips during the injection, but topical anesthesia or numbing creams can also be provided upon request for added comfort.

Results from Juvéderm® treatments can last up to one year, making it one of the longest-lasting injectable fillers on the market. Results will gradually fade with time, so be sure to come back in for an annual maintenance appointment to maintain your results. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your new lips, you can rest easy knowing that the results are temporary and your regular lip shape will return with time.
