I have the privilege of watching Dr Blume work his magic on a daily basis. His injection techniques are flawless…and yesterday was my turn. One of the “benefits” of being my age are those tiny lines around the mouth. Not too deep but enough to bother me.
After applying a topical to numb this area, Dr Blume used Juvederm Ultra XC to smooth out these tiny lines. Juvederm Ultra XC gel is a colorless hyaluronic acid gel that contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic, that is injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles, especially around the mouth. I felt little discomfort due to the combination of the topical and the lidocaine. The entire procedure took less than an hour. The results were immediate and I experienced absolutely no “down time”. No bruising, no swelling and the lines were gone.
This morning, my lips look like I turned back the clock 10 years. No more aging smile lines, just fuller, younger lips. Thank you, Dr Blume.
