Juvéderm is a family of injectable fillers made from hyaluronic acid – a compound found naturally in the skin. The fillers provide up to nine months of correction for surface and deep facial wrinkles and folds. This includes nasolabial folds, but it is not used in lip augmentation. Juvederm is a smooth gel, unlike some other fillers that can have a grainy consistency.
Using Hylacross technology, these fillers allow for easier placement by our trained plastic surgeons. The hyaluronic acid helps the fillers add temporary volume and smoothness to the skin. Some Juvederm products actually contain a local anesthetic (lidocaine) for a more pleasant injection experience. Additionally Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC contain preservative0free lidocaine that numbs the treatment area within just a few seconds.
During the procedure, our highly skilled and experienced surgeons use a fine need to inject the product directly into the treatment sites that have been predetermined by our surgeon. The entire process takes less than an hour, making it a convenient minimally-invasive procedure that helps correct the look of fine lines, wrinkles and folds.

Before & After
Types of Juvederm Filler
- Juvederm Volbella XC
- Juvederm Ultra XC
- Juvederm Ultra Plus XC
- Juvederm Vollure XC
- Juvederm Voluma XC
Within the first day after the injections, some patients experience temporary redness, swelling or itching at the treatment site. We recommend patients avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, as well as alcoholic beverages.
Over time, the body metabolizes the fillers, so multiple treatments are necessary to maintain results – typically nine months to one year after your initial procedure.
Quality Patient Care
Our surgeons along with the supporting staff at the practice provides full support and care for patients right from their initial consultation stage through recovery.
