As of March 20, 2020 we are no longer seeing patients in our office due to COVID-19. We are happy to continue caring for you during these uncertain times. We are now offering remote appointments for new and established patients although we will no longer be able to see you in person. For some patients, an in person visit is best, but if you feel that your concern could be addressed online, this may be a convenient option for you.
Juvederm® Ultra XC: for lips.
Juvederm® Ultra XC, offered by The Dermatology Institute of Boston, is a filler that adds more fullness and volume to plump thin lips – whether your lips have thinned over time or you simply want fuller lips. Dr. Graber performs Juvederm® Ultra XC for Boston patients looking for effective non-surgical lip enhancement.
Some people simply have naturally thin lips and just want to achieve a fuller appearance. Other people have noticed their lips thinning over time and may also have seen vertical lip lines (also known as smoker’s lines) become more noticeable. These lines result from the aging process, smoking, and prolonged sun exposure. Juvederm® Ultra XC can restore and enhance the lips.
Juvederm® Ultra XC is a dermal filler primarily composed of hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in our bodies, so it is rare for it to react adversely when injected. Hyaluronic acid bonds with water molecules in order to create volume, lending skin its full and youthful appearance.
Juvederm® Ultra XC offers several benefits:
A treatment session is very short and convenient. At the start, the areas of treatment are carefully discussed between the patient and the physician. We want you to have a natural result and we want to plan your treatment so that you still look like yourself, just refreshed. Our approach is “less is more”. We believe that small improvements go a long way.
Results usually lasts between 6 months to 1 year on average. You can opt for a repeat treatment if you feel that your lips are beginning to thin out again, as they naturally will, after the effects of the Juvederm® Ultra XC dermal filler wear off.

For some patients, an in person visit is best, but if you feel that your concern could be addressed online, this may be a convenient option for you.
