Our office offers the JUVÉDERM® collection of injectable fillers. This brand represents the most common hyaluronic acid fillers currently in use in the United States. There are several different types of Juvederm fillers. Each is designed to treat specific problem areas including the cheek, lips, unwanted lines and facial wrinkles. The results are natural looking and can last up to two years. The length of results varies for each patient depending on the specific filler used.
The hyaluronic acid in the filler is a compound that is naturally produced by the body to support the structure of the skin. It is often described as the scaffolding of the skin along with collagen. Binding both collagen and water, Hyaluronic acid injectables work by naturally adding volume to the skin which smooths out lines and folds.
Juvederm Voluma XC adds volume to the cheek area. It can help correct for age related volume loss. This added volume can help create a more youthful appearance for patients across the entire face and lasts up to 2 years.
Juvederm Vollure XC, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC and Juvederm Ultra XC can treat wrinkles and lines that occur around the nose and mouth as well as other areas of the face. All treatments offer patients natural results, particularly for stubborn smile lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). Results last from 9-18 months depending on the specific filler used. 11.
