The pressure is on. You have only a few days until your high school reunion and you need to blow their socks off. You've been prepping - working out, losing weight, you have the perfect dress - but what about your smile? If you have a naturally down turned smile, it may be difficult to accurately express your happiness in photos. A non-surgical treatment known as the Mona Lisa Smile procedure can help turn your frown into a smile.
As demonstrated by Dr. Drew Ordon of The Doctors, he uses Juvederm Ultra- an injectable filler from Allergan, the makers of Botox- that is mixed with lidocaine for a more comfortable experience. He injects the filler in the bottom lip at the corners of the mouth so that the smile has an upturned appearance, giving you a natural smile.
Juvederm is a smooth gel, hyaluronic acid, non-animal dermal filler that offers long-lasting results for up to six months or longer. Now available with lidocaine, patients report little pain during the injection. Side effects include mild pain and redness at the injection site. Juvederm has a smooth consistency so that it enters the skin easily and leaves feels smooth as well.
