Maybe it’s the lower half of the face that’s your cause for concern. There are things you can do! In addition to the anti-aging regimen you use for your face, there are cosmetic procedures that can also help.
The Parentheses are the lines that run from your nose to the edges of your mouth. These lines become deeper and more noticeable with age. Juvéderm or other dermal fillers are great for this. The filler is injected into the skin along the wrinkle. Within the next few days, the filler solution begins to absorb water and add the volume that has been los with age back into the area, making you look younger.
Turned Down Mouth
The “turned down mouth” refers to the lines the start at the edges of your mouth and go down, turning down your mouth & smile at its ends. Either BOTOX or a dermal filler (such as Juvéderm) can be used here, and which one is better for you will depend on any other areas of concern and the natural look of your face. Dr. Beverly or Alisa will consult with you on this area to determine the best course of action for you.
General Volume Loss
Maybe you have both of the above and/or a general droopiness to your face. In this case, Dr. Beverly may recommend Juvéderm Voluma. Voluma is a hyaluronic acid filler that is injected into the upper cheeks. As the volume is restored along the cheek bone, the lower half of the face lifts, thereby reducing the appearance of the parentheses & turned down mouth.
Dermal fillers are often used to fill in the lines around the mouth. Just a very small bead of filler is injected into each of these small lines allowing for a natural look without causing any interference with the movement of your mouth.
