About JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC
Touted as the “next generation” of facial fillers, JUVÉDERM® injectable hyaluronic acid gels gently smooth wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose and restore a youthful volume to the face. JUVÉDERM® XC and JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC use a more advanced, cross-linked formula for the correction of moderate to severe wrinkles or folds in the mid- to deep dermis. While Juvederm XC smoothes moderate to severe parenthesis lines and wrinkles to create a smoother appearance, Juvederm Ultra XC adds fullness to plump and fill the lips. Juvederm has been proven to last up to 1 year in wrinkles and folds and when treated again after one year, patients need less products to achieve their results.
About JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is a bold hyaluronic acid injectable filler that instantly adds volume to the cheek and mid-face area, giving patients a visible lift. By helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile to the cheeks, the product “fills” laxity in loose skin, creating a lifting effect in the nasolabial folds, “marionette” lines, jowls and eye area. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is FDA approved to last up to 2 years.
About Juvéderm® VOLBELLA®
Juvéderm® VOLBELLA® with Lidocaine is the latest advancement in the Juvéderm® range of facial fillers, developed specifically for your lips and mouth area. It is a smooth gel that is injected using an ultra-fine needle. It has been specifically developed as a smooth gel to give a soft, natural feel. The gel fills in lip lines and wrinkles while the hyaluronic acid within attracts and retains moisture, so results can last up to a year.
What to Expect with JUVÉDERM
JUVÉDERM treatments generally take about 15 – 30 minutes, depending on which areas we treat. At the beginning of your appointment, a team member cleans the skin and marks the injection sites. JUVÉDERM fillers contain a local anesthetic (lidocaine) to decrease discomfort throughout the procedure. Following your treatment, you can resume your routine, but you should avoid strenuous activities, like exercise, for at least a day. Additionally, please make sure that you do not touch your face after the treatment because you may risk moving the gel into unwanted places. Our team can provide detailed aftercare instructions on how to care for your skin and what to expect.

What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and a relaxer?
Injectable fillers and relaxers improve facial wrinkles but in different ways. Injectable wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX®, work to smooth dynamic wrinkles created by frequent muscle movements. An injectable wrinkle filler, like JUVÉDERM®, corrects static wrinkles by adding volume. JUVÉDERM is great for improving mild to moderate wrinkles or reversing volume loss in your cheeks and lips.
What results can I expect?
It may take a few days to view the complete results of your JUVÉDERM treatment. Typically, it only takes one treatment appointment to achieve your aesthetic goal. However, you may make a second appointment if you would like to enhance your results or increase volume.
How long do results typically last?
The effects of one JUVÉDERM injection may last anywhere from 1 – 2 years. This can vary based on which filler is used and the injection site(s). The length of your results can also depend on the speed at which your body absorbs the product.
