How Juvéderm Can Treat the Aging Lip

So, one of the most common personal questions I get asked during my consultations are if I get lip filler.  I have naturally been blessed with good lip volume through family genetics, so the answer is no… I have never had my lips injected with filler.  That reminds me of a blog I should write about things that I do to keep my skin looking its best.  But I digress… I wanted to be more specific on how Juvéderm VOLUMA filler can be used to improve the aging lip.  On your initial visit, we like to do full cosmetic consultations.   … Continue Reading

Make ReNue Part of Your Upcoming Special Event

Special events are so fun to plan for this time of year.  During the summer, it sometimes surprises people that we are all hands on deck and everyone at ReNue is trying our best to get everyone in and feeling great.

The great thing about PRP is that is a completely natural method to improve your … Continue Reading

Treatment of the Lips Part 1 – The Aging Lip

The treatment of lips in the medical aesthetic world is the most controversial of subjects.  I am going to write a few blogs on the subject because I spend so much time treating lips and discussing lips with our clients.

Lips age from the natural loss of skin thickness and … Continue Reading
