One type of injection that Tevez-Ortiz administers most commonly is lip augmentation or lip injections. This procedure gives you fuller lips with dermal filler injections to the lips, and around the mouth. Most common fillers today have hyaluronic acid in them, which is a natural substance in the body, and greatly increases the volume in the lips. These fillers add shape, structure, and volume to the lips that typically last around six months. Ana also performs the following restorative services at Valencia Medical Center including liquid facelift/ Dorma filler, Botox / Xeomin / Dysport, Kybella for double chin, micro-needling with PRP, also commonly known as collagen inducing therapy, which is non-invasive and utilizes the body’s natural healing ability.
