Dermal Fillers (Juvederm Ultra XC, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC)
Currently, Juvederm is the most popular dermal filler used by plastic surgeons for lip enlargement. Juvederm is made from hyaluronic acid, and creates a soft, malleable look and feel that mimics the natural collagen tissue of the lips. The newest generation of Juvederm has Xylocaine in it which is an effective numbing agent. This makes the placement of the product more comfortable.
Dermal fillers are temporary treatments that typically last 4-7 months although some patients results can last up to a year with the newest generation of fillers. They require minimal or no downtime and results are enjoyed immediately. These treatments are performed in an office setting in our Minneapolis and St. Paul offices.
