Fall in love again with your lips!

Whether in search of supple, soft smoochers or in pursuit of the perfect pucker – when we think of our signature look, lips are at the top of most of our lists.

Dr. Jean-François Tremblay, leading aesthetic-dermatologist of the Montreal clinic MédIME explains that to help perfect their pout, women rely on lipsticks and liners. But the fact is – one in five women are dissatisfied with the look of their lips. What’s more, nearly one in three (30 per cent) say that as they’ve aged, their lips have gotten thinner.

Juvéderm VOLBELLA with Lidocaine is the newest injectable filler to be approved specifically for the lips. It is indicated for the enhancement and pouting of lips to correct volume loss and offers a versatile option for both younger and older women who desire a tailored smile or treatment outcome that enhances or replenishes lost volume or support. It lasts up to 12 months with a single treatment, with less swelling compared to other lip fillers.

JUVÉDERM® provides a smooth, natural look and feel, so everyone will notice... but no one will know!
