Juvederm is one of the newest fillers available. Juvederm is often requested by Louisville lip augmentation patients who desire to enhance the volume of their lips but it can also be used on all areas of the face, not just the lips. It is a hyaluronic acid, which is a protein naturally found in the skin. Treatments are done in the office and take only around 30 minutes. The treatments are maintaining their results for 12 to 18 months.
Today a popular filler is Restylane. Restylane is a skin protein that both plumps the skin and helps it to maintain it’s moisture.
Treatments are done in the office and usually take around 30 minutes. Afterwards, there is no true recovery or downtime though you will experience some mild redness in the areas treated. A dental block is available to maximize your comfort. Areas being treated include the crease between the cheek and lip (naso-labial fold), the creases that arc down from the corner of the mouth (marionette lines), and to plump the upper and lower lip. As a highly experienced Louisville Restylane specialist, Dr. Corbett also uses this filler to treat the area around the eyes.
Treatments are available at our plastic surgery Louisville office on most any day of the week. Call or E-mail the office if you are interested in scheduling a consultation. In addition to Restylane and Juvederm, Dr. Corbett also offers injections of Botox and Dysport in Louisville, as well as the state-of-the-art VeraPulse procedure for the removal of facial spider veins.

A combination of Botox and injectable fillers are used to reduce frown lines, minimize crow's feet, plump up cheeks, fill in “smoker’s lines” above the lips, soften laugh lines and even camouflage under eye puffiness and modest amounts of excess skin at the jaw line all in about 1 hour. The results of a full or partial “lunchtime facelift” can be fairly dramatic. For a fraction of the cost and downtime of surgery, a patient can look considerably, noticeably refreshed. Gone (or greatly reduced) are those annoying little bags, bulges and sags that made looking in the mirror every morning so discouraging. Of course, the downside of the “lunchtime facelift” is that the results are temporary. A consistent regimen of facials and corrective skin care products can enhance treatment results and prepare the skin for repeat treatments.
Cost is $1650, no downtime!
I researched and interviewed several surgeons for my procedure. I was scared and unsure when I started the process and Dr. Corbett made me feel comfortable and at ease.
