With One of Our Dermal Fillers or Lip Injection Treatments You Can

Rediscover Your True Look at DermMedica

It all started when we were tiny little babies with big fat cheeks – how cute! After our young adult years, all that volume began to slowly disappear and now we are wondering where the heck did it all go? Some of us lose volume more quickly, while others hold onto it quite well into our middle age, but all of us lose volume as we age. The first areas to go are usually around the eyes, cheeks and chin area. Adding a little volume here and there with precise injections can reshape our face back to where we need it to be. The beauty of injectable treatments is no surgery and no downtime required, but results that normally last years.

Expected Results

Juvéderm® dermal filler (an alternative to collagen injections) is a simple non-surgical treatment that uses hyaluronic acid (HA) (a naturally-occurring sugar found in the body) to smooth and give volume to the skin.

Using the latest in volumizing technology, Juvéderm VOLUMA proves that volume can go a long way in restoring a more youthful, natural appearance:

  • Restore contours lost to decreased volume and smooth the mid-face
  • Rejuvenate sunken areas around the cheeks
  • Create volume and youthful contour in the chin
  • Clear away the appearance of wrinkles and folds

This dermal filler provides terrific results when used by itself, but also can be used with a wrinkle smoothing injectable (Botox® Cosmetic) to provide a more balanced, refreshed look because it treats all areas of the face.

Our Juvéderm Treatments

Each Juvéderm treatment at DermMedica is a personalized facial rejuvenation that will help you look your best. It can address the three D’s of aging in the face — descent, deflation, and deterioration.

  • Descent: Droopiness/sagging skin in cheeks, lower facial areas
  • Deflation: Loss of fullness or volume in the mid-face area
  • Deterioration: Superficial fine lines, wrinkles, and texture changes

By treating the three D’s of aging with a complete and holistic approach, you can achieve dramatic facial rejuvenation, without losing your own natural look. The effects of some surgical procedures can leave you looking unlike yourself, but not this one. It will leave you looking refreshed in just minutes with no major surgical risks.

DermaFill

DermaFill is a personalized facial rejuvenation that maximizes the benefits of our facial injectables by using more in more places of the face to achieve a more comprehensive overall improvement. Not all patients require a DermaFill procedure, but for those who do, the effects can make a world of difference.

Treatment Spotlight:

Lip Augmentation With Injectables

Many patients have come to us wanting to change many things about the fullness and contours of their lips. The injectables we provide are designed to target all of the following problems and more:

Thin Lips: Fuller lips are one of our most requested treatments, and we are happy to help. We carry what we consider to be the best substance that can be used to plump lips and give them an enhanced, but still natural look. A natural look is a key element in our plans. There is no point in having an overdone look if it’s just going to stand out in a negative way. Dr. Crippen always aims to provide the most natural look with every procedure.

Vertical Lip Lines: These wrinkles are also known as “smoker’s lines,” and are a common source of distress for our clients because they are a sign of aging that often comes too early for most people. Improving them can give a younger appearance to the face. Our different treatments can occasionally be used for these lines, as well as laser therapy or Botox® Cosmetic. Each patient requires a different approach, which we can discuss during our consultation.

Poorly Outlined Lips: Some clients are unhappy with the look of their vermillion border—the outline that separates lips from the rest of the face. This is generally a problem in older patients who have lost that border due to aging and sun exposure. The right amount can make a dramatic difference.

Unsatisfying Cupid’s Bow: A sharp cupid’s bow (the M part of the upper lip) is a timeless look that can be enhanced in the right patient. The key is that the doctor not try to change the shape of someone’s lip, rather they need to focus on enhancing what is already present.
