Dermal / Injectable Fillers2019-06-21T14:03:28-04:00

    Project Description

    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

    Where does JUVÉDERM® XC and JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE XC work?2017-11-07T20:07:11-04:00

    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.

    What are smile lines (or “Parenthesis”)?2017-11-07T20:06:14-04:00

    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.

    What are Marionette lines?2017-07-19T20:16:10-04:00

    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

    What are vertical lip lines?2017-11-07T20:05:20-04:00

    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.

    How does JUVÉDERM® work?2017-11-07T20:04:21-04:00

    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

    Who should administer Juvederm?2017-11-07T20:03:56-04:00

    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!

    How long is the JUVÉDERM® recovery time?2017-07-19T20:15:38-04:00

    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.

    What preparation is required?2017-07-19T20:15:30-04:00

    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.

    How long does JUVÉDERM® XC, JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC and JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE XC last?2017-11-07T20:03:31-04:00

    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.

    WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

    I was so pleased with everything. Dr. Wright is such a nice person and wonderful doctor. Brittany was so pleasant and friendly. They offer blankets and pillows and make sure throughout the entire procedure that you are comfortable and that you are as pain free as possible. Everything went well and they go out of their way to make it so.
    Marianne D.

    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.

    Donald B.

    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.

    Penny F.

    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.

    Laurie J.
    Dr. Wright listens, answers questions, gives understandable explanations, presents options. I consider him an outstanding physician, and his nurse is also excellent. The use of technology is also very good. BTW, my rating on the facility pertains to the Lenoir City location. I would rate the Knoxville location Excellent.
    Jane R.
    I tend to avoid doctors if I can. And I have never left a review for any medical person or facility. But Dr. Wright made some uncomfortable symptoms easy to discuss and then was able to offer excellent options for resolving those issues. I would send anyone I care about to see him for any sort of skin-related complaint. He is the best!
    Sean M.

    This was my first visit with Knoxville Institute of Dermatology, and my first visit with Dr. Wright. Dr. Wright seems like a very knowledgeable, caring doctor, who explains things well, and seems to care very much for his patients. I already have an appointment in a year to see Dr. Wright again for a check up. Since I live in Crossville it is also much more convenient to be able to see him at the Lenoir City office.

    Barry S.
    Thank you for the convenience of visiting this office in Lenoir City rather than going out of town. I received a thorough examination and treatment. I received reference material about the condition to read at home. Dr. Wright took the time to welcome me back and offer to help anytime. Who does that? I appreciate all of this. I have found myself a new dermatology center!
