JUVÉDERM® is the #1 selling collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the US. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers adds volume to a different area of the face to lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, or plump the lips. The results are subtle and long-lasting. JUVÉDERM® treatment is administered by our board-certified dermatologists to guarantee superior, longer-lasting results.

Over time, your skin loses elasticity, which contributes to moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. While serums and creams work on the skin’s surface, JUVÉDERM® XC and JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC add volume to smooth these lines and folds, to help give you the subtle, long-lasting results you want.
Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area.
Some people simply have naturally thin lips and just want to achieve a fuller appearance. Other people have noticed their lips thinning over time and may also have seen vertical lip lines become more noticeable. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is the most recent addition to the collection—tailored to add subtle volume to the lips and smooth the appearance of vertical lip lines.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Everyone’s skin ages differently and JUVÉDERM® XC and JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE XC may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas. From smile lines to vertical lip lines, you can smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours.
Smile lines, or nasolabial folds, run vertically from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth. This is a popular treatment area that many women seek help with. While individual results may vary, after just one JUVÉDERM® XC or JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE XC treatment, most patients see a real difference; with a noticeable softening of the smile lines.
Marionette Lines are the vertical facial wrinkles and folds that form below the corners of the mouth. These lines can sometimes give the appearance of a sagging and/or downturned expression
Facial wrinkles above and around the lips can begin to appear over time due to ordinary lip muscle movement. The good news is that JUVÉDERM® XC and JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA XC dermal filler can soften those with typically just one treatment.
JUVÉDERM® is a nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment. Our dermatologists administer JUVÉDERM® under the skin using a fine needle to augment, or fill lines and wrinkles, adding volume and diminishing folds. JUVÉDERM® contains anesthesia (lidocaine); however, topical anasthesia may be recommended prior to the procedure for additional comfort
Juvederm is available to any licensed physician. However, for best results you should always trust your skin to a physician with specific training in skin and aesthetic medicine, such as the board-certified dermatologists at Knoxville Institute of Dermatology. Drs. Rahman, Anderson and Wright have years of experience in medical and surgical treatments of the skin.
In many offices in Knoxville, physicians delegate the injection of Juvaderm to technicians who may have minimal or no medical training. You may have also seen “medi-spas” popping up throughout the Knoxville area. Many of these centers do not even have a physician on the premises! Recent articles in The New York Times and CNN have stressed the importance of having a qualified physician administer your treatments, stating it is “crucial that people check the credentials and experience of those who offer cosmetic treatments”. It is vital that you insist on having highly qualified, specifically trained providers perform your Juvederm injections. Trust your skin to one of Knoxville’s leading experts in Juvederm!
With JUVÉDERM® there is minimal recovery or downtime after the procedure.
Following JUVÉDERM® treatment, you should refrain from alcohol consumption for 24 hours and from exercise for 6 hours. It is important not to massage the area treated for 24 hours. This helps the product “settle” without disturbing the location where it was injected. There is a risk of bruising and swelling which usually lasts only a few days.
To minimize bruising or bleeding, patients are advised to avoid aspirin (unless prescribed by your doctor), ibuprofen or other anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements 10-14 days prior to your JUVÉDERM® treatment.
JUVÉDERM® products are made of a natural substance normally found in the skin, so they are eventually absorbed by the body. JUVÉDERM® XC provides effect for an average of 6-9 months, JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC for up to 2 years andJUVÉDERM® VOLLURE XC for up to 18 months . The effect varies depending on the type of skin, areas, and amounts injected.
BEFORE & AFTER GALLERY
What Our Patients Say
I really was impressed with Dr. Wright. He is extremely knowledgeable and I really recommend him as a fine Dermatologist.
Dr. Rahman is wonderful. She is very professional, knowledgeable and kind. She takes time to listen. She handled my problem right away. I had been very concerned about it.
What a great experience! I was greeted promptly and courteously by the front desk staff. I was seen almost immediately and treated with care and concern by both Devon and Dr. Wright. I will certainly make KID my home for dermatology and would highly recommend them to everyone.
Dr. Adam Wright took his time to explain the procedure, perform the surgery, and teach how to care for wound afterwards. I have found few physicians take such time with their patients and I am a registered nurse.
I was very pleased with the efficiency of the staff who handed me some forms, then directed me upstairs where I barely sat down before I was escorted to the exam room. Dr. Wright came in a few minutes later and got down to business in a most pleasant and professional manner. Thank you.
I had a recurring dermatological condition for several and a series of dermatologists as a result. And yet until I met Dr. Wright, my condition remained undiagnosed and it turned out to be potentially life-threatening. I am so fortunate to have found him and I would not go to anyone else and recommend him often.
Knox Institute of Dermatology is the best! Dr. Adam Wright has always been very courteous and knowledgeable of my care.
Lindsey Best, NP is a great listener and she is sensitive to my daughter’s questions and concerns. Her acne is getting better! Thank you!
I saw the NP. She was personable, informative and skilled in taking care of my problem. I recommend her and will ask for her if I have need to go again.
Awesome doctor, awesome staff. Definitely would recommend this office to all my friends. Also, my husband is a patient and my daughters will have appointments soon.
Dr. Rahman and her nurse were very friendly, professional, and spent an appropriate amount of time with me. I have some benign lesions that I want to have removed at some time in the future and I will return to Knox Institute of Dermatology.
We had a great experience with Dr Anderson, she was great with my 10 year old son, minimal wait times. Lovely office and staff!
Dr. Elizabeth Anderson is very thorough, knowledgeable, listens, explains the best treatments, and gives options for care.
I had an overall satisfying experience as usual. Short wait time, attractive and clean facilities, courteous and professional yet welcoming staff. Dr. Rahman was thorough and treatment options were well explained.
Dr. Anderson has been my dermatologist for several years, and I continue to be impressed with her dedication, caring attitude, and professionalism. The staff are always friendly and helpful.
I was called back promptly. Dr. Rahman was careful to make sure I was not experiencing any pain during the procedure.. The staff was friendly, yet very professional; clearly describing follow-up procedures I needed to perform. My insurance initially rejected a prescribed mediation, but the staff worked tirelessly and was successful in getting them to reverse their decision.
Friendly and excellent service! Love the staff, always up beat and happy. Comfortable with staff knowledge and skills. Just a great experience if there is such a thing when visiting a Dr.
Dr. Wright was very caring, answered questions in a way I could understand, listened to what I had to say. I especially appreciate that he doesn’t prescribe medications without careful thought and trying alternatives first.
Dr. Anderson is a knowledgeable, compassionate, and caring doctor. Her nurse, Lori, was equally sensitive to my concerns and she showed the utmost respect and dignity during my medical treatment.
They have a very nice and knowledgeable staff. I didn’t have to wait long, and they did a great job of explaining the process and options to me. I highly recommend this practice!
