Juvéderm

Juvéderm is an FDA-approved, hyaluronic acid dermal filler used for non-surgical facial rejuvenation on many areas of the face. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps to hydrate it and give it structure and elasticity. When hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvéderm are injected into the facial tissue, age-related volume loss is restored, and the appearance of deep facial folds and severe facial wrinkles is improved.

Juvéderm offers several different products designed for different areas of the face, and your injector will discuss your cosmetic concerns with you to determine the best products for your treatment. Certain Juvéderm dermal fillers are specialized for lip augmentation while others are best used to smooth wrinkles.

Juvéderm Collection of Fillers

Ultra Plus XC

JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is an injectable gel that temporarily adds more fullness and plumps thin lips—whether your lips have thinned over time, or you simply want fuller lips. JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC corrects moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the smile/laugh lines around the nose and mouth, also known as nasolabial folds. When injected into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur, it temporarily adds volume to the skin, which gives the appearance of a smoother surface.

Voluma

As you age, the cheeks may flatten and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC adds volume beneath the skin’s surface, which provides lift and contour to the cheek area. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC injectable gel is designed for deep injection for augmentation of the chin region to improve the chin profile. Adding volume to the chin area creates shape and definition

Your Juvéderm Treatment

Most of our patients do not consider Juvéderm injections to be painful, but we can apply a topical numbing cream at the start of your appointment to maximize your comfort. Your injector will place a few Juvéderm injections into the treatment area discussed during your consultation. Juvéderm only takes a few minutes to inject, and the entire appointment is less than 30 minutes.

Results and Recovery

There is minimal recovery and downtime needed after Juvéderm treatment. Mild bruising, swelling, and tenderness around the injection site are common side effects but should resolve within a few days. Depending on which filler you receive during your skin injection procedures, results can last anywhere from 6-18 months.

Who Can Benefit from Juvéderm?

Men and women in overall good health who want to smooth the appearance of deep wrinkles or restore the definition of their face can benefit from Juvéderm. If you have an active skin infection or are currently pregnant or breastfeeding, you will be recommended to wait to receive treatment. Severe allergic reactions are not as common with hyaluronic acid fillers since this is a substance naturally found in the body.
