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

Jowels, sagginess, heavy face, and drooping are all terms that many patients over the age of 50 start to connect with.  They … Continue Reading

Addressing Sadness in the Face

Whether it is right or not, we all spend a great deal of time trying to judge what others are feeling as we interact.  We make judgments that we don’t even think about on a daily basis.  Whether this person might be friendly, happy, smart, fun or even a good person to get to know.  Our first interaction with people is through the use of our visual observations.  This goes back to our caveman instincts as to whether it is safe to be around a person or not.  Our initial judgments served as a survival instinct and we can’t simply … Continue Reading
