Two weeks ago I met Lee AKA @offiicial_mamichula who is a FABULOUS vlogger (video blogger) on Long Island. Lee is the real deal – she has over 20k followers on Instagram and over *300k* followers on YouTube! Needless to say when I was approached by my amazing company to have Lee capture me in action on her video blog I immediately said YES!
First, Lee and I sat down to discuss what her concerns were. She felt as if her face was “sunken in.” This is a very common complaint that patients notice from weight loss or just the natural aging process. After a brief examination we decided to use #juvedermultraXC for her #nasolabialfolds AKA “smile lines” (pink arrows.) We also opted to do a little work on her lips to add more symmetry and definition.
First, my medical assistant took pictures and applied numbing cream. The numbing cream was left on for about 10-15 minutes. One of the things I LOVE about these #hyaluronicacidfillers is that they have #lidocaine already mixed into the syringe. The combination between the numbing cream and the lidocaine allows patients to have minimal discomfort during the procedure. #lovemyhappypatients
Once we were ready to role the numbing cream was removed, and the area was thoroughly cleaned with alcohol and hibiclens. To achieve full correction on Lee I used only one syringe. Depending on how deep the deficit is ultimately determines how many syringes we will need. Click the play button to watch a behind the scenes sneak peek!
The entire procedure for her smile lines took about 15 minutes. Lee was so happy with the results! After we finished her smile lines we moved onto the lips. I always advise my patients to do their top and bottom lip to achieve perfect symmetry and proportion #noducklipsplease. Lee already had nice, full lips so we did not need to add significant volume. Ultimately I wanted to give her the #perfectpout by defining her #vermillionborder (the well defined area where your lip meets your normal skin) and fixing the slight asymmetry she had in her lips. FYI: it is normal for our lips to be smaller or bigger than the other. After numbing and cleansing the area we were ready. Once again #juvedermultra was my filler of choice. In total we used around half of a syringe to achieve perfection! Click the play button to watch a behind the scenes sneak peek!
HOW FUN! It was great having Lee at my office in Smithtown at Schweiger Dermatology. She was a total doll and I hope to work with her again in the near future. I can now say that Lee is an official #dermdiva. Huge shout out to @offiicial_mamichula for filming this entire experience for her YouTube blog!
