Juvederm™ is the new hyaluronic acid filler for wrinkles, lips and volume enhancement in the mid face.
Hyaluronic acid is an amino acid found naturally in the body’s tissues.
It is an improved hyaluronic acid product that has a smooth and cohesive consistency. It stays where it is placed in the skin.
Juvederm™ is injected under folds and wrinkles to plump and support the skin.
Juvederm™ products are longer lasting. They are the only hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved by the FDA to last up to one year from treatment.
Juvederm™ Ultra XC and Juvederm™ Ultra Plus XC contain a fast acting local anesthetic, lidocaine, to make your experience more comfortable.
There are several Juvederm™ products for treating different parts of the face and anything from fine lines to volume enhancement. For instance, fine lines on the upper lip or around the eyes, or volume replacement in the lip edge can be achieved.
A newer product, Voluma®, replaces volume in the cheeks. As we age the areas of fat that give our face its youthful contours shift and create an aging face. Voluma® restores this lost volume and gives a more youthful, apple cheeked appearance.
A commonly treated area is the lines that run from the nose to the corner of the mouth. As lines running vertically on the face tend to age you, treating these lines can make you look younger and fresher.
All these treatments can cause bruising, but every effort is made to prevent this. Most people can return to work after a treatment.
Treatments take 30 – 60 minutes.
