Most of you are probably already familiar with “Soft Lift”, the combination of Juvederm® and prescription wrinkle injection to achieve an optimal rejuvenated appearance, while at the same time enjoying some cost savings. These two products work so well together because they can address not only loss of volume, one of the cardinal features of aging, but also lines and wrinkles produced by repetitive muscle contraction.
Evidence is mounting to show that judicious use of prescription wrinkle injection in strategic locations can also improve the longevity of Juvederm®. For example, small amounts injected just above the lip can make a lip augmentation last longer. We are now finding that by treating with prescription wrinkle injection, and then by diluting Juvederm® with a freezing agent, or saline (salt water) we can achieve a very natural looking improvement in fine lines above the lip, in the crows feet area, and elsewhere on the face where a thick product would not be ideal. This is revolutionary, as historically prescription wrinkle injections alone have been used in the crows feet area often with only modest benefit, especially when lines are deep. Conversely, Juvederm® has mostly been the product of choice for “smokers” lines, but usually gives only limited improvement. This new combination/dilution method can yield a much softer, more natural result.
