Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC Injections
Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC is a colorless hyaluronic acid gel which contains a small quantity of the local anesthetic lidocaine and is injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and to act as a cushioning agent. The role of lidocaine is to reduce the pain associated with injections into the skin. This popular dermal filler temporarily adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smooth facial texture with little to no discomfort.
The Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC Treatment Process and What Results to Expect
This cosmetic filler is injected into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur. It temporarily adds volume to the skin and may give the appearance of a smoother surface. The injectable gel will help to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. With most patients, one treatment is enough to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, with results lasting up to one year.
Juvéderm Voluma™ XC Voluma
This formulation of the popular injectable is designated for deep (subcutaneous and supraperiosteal) injections for cheek augmentation to correct age-related volume deficit in the mid-face in adults over the age of 21. As you age, the cheek area loses its youthful shape. The cheeks flatten out, and the skin may begin to sag. Juvéderm Voluma™ XC injectable gel is designed to reverse these signs of aging temporarily. It is a gel which when injected into the cheek area, lifts the skin. It temporarily adds volume to the cheeks and results in a smoother contour and more youthful facial appearance.
How We Use Juvéderm Voluma™ XC
The gel is injected into the cheek area using a tiny needle to correct a loss of volume to the midface to deliver a smoother, more youthful skin texture.
While individual results vary, in the clinical studies, the results last as long as two years in a majority of patients treated. Henceforth, repeat injections are usually necessary to maintain your desired results of a smoother, active skin presence.
Juvéderm Volbella® XC
Juvéderm Volbella® XC is hailed as one of the best non-surgical treatments for smoothing wrinkles and vertical lines around the mouth and plumping up and shaping lip volume. Constant facial movement, genetics, and aging can contribute to prominent lines about the mouth (smokers’ lines) and flattened lackluster lip volume. Juvederm Volbella XC adds volume to this area providing a solution to this significant sign of aging.
Injections to the areas around the mouth will provide a gentle, natural-looking increase in volume to restore a youthful and sensual facial appearance.
To reduce wrinkles, lines, and folds around the lower facial area including the chin and jawline, our skin care professionals choose Vollure; it is especially effective in the treatment of marionette lines. This hyaluronic acid filler is an excellent treatment to reduce the common signs of aging in the lower face to provide a more prominent jawline and facial outline.
Injections are quick, convenient and comfortable, lasting only 15 minutes in most cases with results lasting for up to 18 months.
Renuva Filler Injections – Fat Grafting without Liposuction
Renuva® is a groundbreaking treatment which improves skin texture, tone, and volume- filling in depressions caused by scarring or unsatisfactory liposuction. Renuva® is designed to treat skin irregularities which detract from smooth contours and faultless skin. It is created from natural tissue to fix dimples, dents, and divots.
Treatment with Renuva takes only a few minutes. With the use of an ultra-fine needle, we inject the product into target areas after applying a localized anesthetic. Patients love this long-lasting filler as an alternative to fat grafting, which helps to add youthful-looking volume to facial features.
Bellafill Cosmetic Facial Rejuvenation
Bellafill (Artefill) is an injectable filler designed to correct wrinkles commonly known as smile lines. Bellafill is a dual-acting injectable filler. First, it visibly corrects wrinkles, and its microspheres provide support which your skin requires for long-lasting correction.
All other fillers are eventually absorbed by the body. Bellafill is different because the unique microspheres in this product are not absorbed by the body. These microspheres provide the support your skin needs for long-lasting wrinkle correction.
