JUVÉDERM® has been successfully used worldwide to help men and women restore youthful facial contours. JUVÉDERM® is an excellent choice because it delivers consistent results and has a good safety profile.
At West Michigan Plastic Surgery, we’re pleased to offer JUVÉDERM® to patients in Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids wanting to regain youthful contours.
JUVÉDERM® is an exciting family of dermal fillers that add volume to the skin to reduce wrinkles and folds, fill in sunken areas of the face, and plump the lips.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC addresses age-related volume loss in the cheeks. It is injected deep into the tissues to add volume to sunken cheeks and lift the midface.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC and JUVÉDERM® XC can be used to correct moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, particularly nasolabial folds or ‘smile lines’ around the nose and mouth.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC and JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC are used for lip augmentation because they add volume to the lips. They also fill in perioral lines, which are the vertical lines around the mouth also referred to as ‘lipstick lines.’
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is also approved for treating moderate to severe lines including nasolabial folds.
JUVÉDERM® is a cross-linked, hyaluronic-acid-based dermal filler that works by adding volume to fill in facial folds and creases. The main ingredient in JUVÉDERM® is modified hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body and provides volume to the skin.
When JUVÉDERM® is injected beneath the skin the hyaluronic particles attract and retain water. This temporarily restores the support structure and the additional volume in the tissues fills in folds and wrinkles.
JUVÉDERM® can be used for overall facial rejuvenation because each product targets a different area of the skin.
If you would like to add volume to your face or fill in fine lines, wrinkles, and folds, JUVÉDERM® may be the right option for you.
JUVÉDERM® has several formulas to choose from, so during your consultation, Dr. Holley or one of our expert injectors will explain what can be achieved with the different products. They will also discuss your goals and determine which JUVÉDERM® product would be right for you, and create a customized treatment plan. This will include recommendations regarding the number of JUVÉDERM® injections you will need for each area.
JUVÉDERM® is a quick treatment that takes only about 15 minutes.
The treated areas look fuller immediately after treatment. The effects of JUVÉDERM® are temporary, lasting 6-18 months depending on the product and the area targeted.
There is usually no downtime after JUVÉDERM®. There may be some bruising and swelling in the treated areas, but this should not prevent you from resuming your regular activities. The swelling should resolve within 2-3 days.
