Lip Augmentation Patient 20077
Details for Lip Augmentation Patient 20077
DescriptionWhen acne persists into adulthood, it can damage a patient's self-confidence and body image. This 30-year-old patient scheduled an appointment with us to discuss how to improve the quality of her skin through noninvasive options such as acne laser treatments at our St. Louis, Missouri offices. She was also interested in ways to reshape the contour of her lips. In her consultation, Dr. Jones examined her skin and developed a skin treatment regimen including Retin-A 0.05 in a 2:1 ratio with a blender, twice a night. At her follow-up visit (shown in the second photo), she is happy with the improvement she sees. Her skin is much healthier and has a more even tone, although she is finding that the treatment is starting to make her complexion a little too light. Dr. Jones recommended in this second consultation that she use the Retin-A 0.05 alone one a night in place of the blended formula. If she experiences too much redness or peeling, she should apply it only every other day. At this point, she will meet with our medical aesthetician for a VISIA™ skin analysis to compare her improvement with the results from her initial analysis in February of 2007. Her lips are in the last stages of healing, and the soft tissues are continuing to soften properly. Overall, her results nicely complement each other; her more even skin tone places more emphasis on her eyes, while her lips have a more balanced look as a result of her lip enhancement cosmetic surgery in St. Louis.
