The lips can be a truly remarkable asset on the face, so it’s not surprising that many women would like to have fuller, more attractive lips. Thanks to Dr. Calderon’s RefreshLIPS® procedure, you can have those lips you’ve dreamed about. And, even if you don’t seek a dramatic change, your lips can be returned to the way they were before the effects of age, stress, sun, and other lifestyle choices took their inevitable toll.
RefreshLIPS® is one of our most popular services. Its goal is to bring more volume and shape to the lips, making them an attractive accent on the face. Dr. Calderon uses Juvederm Ultra Plus, a hyaluronic acid-based filler, to increase volume. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in the body that is responsible for hydrating and plumping the skin. As we age, the body produces less of it, resulting in decreased volume across the face and the lips. Once injected into the lips, Juvederm’s hyaluronic acid attracts and binds with water molecules to add and maintain volume, delivering naturally fuller lips that are deeply hydrated.
The results of our RefreshLIPS® procedure are immediate; you’ll go home with fuller, more attractive lips after your appointment. The effects of Juvederm usually last up to a year before the body absorbs the material. From that point, follow-up treatments will be necessary every six months to a year (depending on your particular absorption rate) to maintain your fuller, beautiful lips.
