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.
