The Corner Corrector Special
By Chrissy Thomas RN, BSN

The mouth area can be one of the first places that we notice facial aging.  From the angry or sad downturn of the mouth to the accumulation of saliva in this area, many men and women seek help from About Face Skin Care for correction. 

Over the years, there is a natural loss of volume in the corners of the mouth, along with other physiological changes, that makes the lower face look almost puppet-like.

Thankfully, this is a very easy problem to fix.  Since the issue begins with a loss of volume, the solution is to add back some volume to provide support to the area.  Juvederm is an injectable filler that is made of hyaluronic acid.  Hyaluronic acid is a type of sugar (polysaccharide) that is present in body tissues, such as in skin and cartilage to keep the areas lubricated and supple. As an injectable, it is able to combine with water and expand when in gel form, causing a smoothing and filling effect. The body recognizes this synthetic form of the acid so there is no need for skin testing for allergies. 

During the appointment, clients are numbed topically.  The Juvederm product has lidocaine in it making the treatment very comfortable.  The actual injection takes only minutes.  Clients notice an immediate difference that continues to improve as the product warms to body temperature and smoothes out even more.  The effects of Juvederm are noticed for 6-12 months and gradually wear off. 

About Face Skin Care is a Platinum Plus practice, one of Allergan’s highest levels of recognition, placing the practice in the top 15% of aesthetic practices across the United States offering Botox, Juvederm and Latisse.  Injectable nurses, Chrissy Thomas, RN and Mary Jackson, RN recently completed the Master Course for Injectors with Allergan and work with a number of injectable materials daily.  Both nurses strive to provide a natural result that restores appearance.
