JUVÉDERM®

Welcome to the latest advances in natural-looking, non-surgical facial aesthetics.

The most in-demand solution nationwide, JUVÉDERM® comes in several unique formulas; each designed to meet a wide variety of patient needs. Each variation’s viscosity (thickness) will allow the specific filler to successfully treat fine lines, deep creases, or replenish facial volume. Here’s a quick overview of the capacity of each formula:

JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC
The ‘light’ version of Juvéderm®‎, Ultra XC works well to eliminate fine facial lines.

JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC
As the ‘medium-duty’ member of the Juvéderm®‎ family, JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC is perfect for deeper folds and mild improvements in facial volume.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
The ‘heavy duty’ JUVÉDERM®‎, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed for restoring tissue volume and shape. Voluma is the newest part of the Juvéderm®‎ line, approved by the FDA in 2013.

JUVÉDERM VOLLURE XC and JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
Both of these smoother fillers are designed to provide patients with natural-looking, subtle lip enhancement and anti-aging around the lips to smooth the vertical lip lines.

JUVÉDERM®‎ can effectively eliminate static wrinkles, providing excellent results when used on its own. When the filler is paired with BOTOX® Cosmetic, used to treat dynamic wrinkles (caused by repetitive muscle movements), patients can see optimal facial rejuvenation. Ask Dr. Lindahl and his team about the other noninvasive treatments available to compliment your JUVÉDERM®‎ treatment.

The Ideal JUVÉDERM®‎ Candidate is anyone who is unhappy with the early signs of aging. The treatments can benefit both men and women; and are safe for any skin type or ethnicity. The ideal patient will be in overall good health, understand the JUVÉDERM®‎ process, and hold reasonable expectations for their results. Those with a history of an allergic reaction to dermal filler injections should not undergo a JUVÉDERM®‎ treatment. A consultation appointment will be held before beginning JUVÉDERM®‎ injections, to determine if JUVÉDERM®‎ will meet each patient’s unique needs.

Prior to beginning a JUVÉDERM®‎ treatment, a brief consultation appointment will be scheduled with Dr. Lindahl. This will provide time for a full assessment of your skin’s health and your medical history. Here, the JUVÉDERM®‎ process will be explained, as well as any other potential options for skin rejuvenation. If JUVÉDERM®‎ is determined to be the right noninvasive product for you, an individualized treatment plan will be created.

The JUVÉDERM®Procedure

The JUVÉDERM®‎ procedure will take less than half an hour complete. Juvéderm®‎ XC contains Lidocaine, an anesthetic, which keeps discomfort to a minimum. For added comfort, patients may request a topical numbing cream or local anesthetic. Once the consultation and anesthesia have been completed, the wrinkle-reducing filler will be applied with a very small needle, just above the underlying muscle and bone tissue.

RHD uses several techniques to administer JUVÉDERM®‎, depending on the patient’s desired results. These include traditional injections, linear threading (a single thread placed under the skin fold), or serial punctures (a number of small deposits under the tissue). The injections themselves will take only a few minutes. Patients are then free to resume their normal activities.

Results from JUVÉDERM®

The benefits from JUVÉDERM®‎ injections can be seen immediately. Lines and folds will be eliminated, the skin will be lifted, and healthy volume restored. Over the next two to three weeks, as any residual swelling or redness resolves, the results from JUVÉDERM®‎ will continue to improve. The Hyaluronic Acid contained in JUVÉDERM®‎ will also encourage the body’s natural production of collagen, giving the face further improvement.

The results from JUVÉDERM®‎ can last from six to twelve months, sometimes longer. This will depend on the treatment area, the extent of correction, and the type of Juvéderm®‎ used. After this time, a repeat treatment can be used to maintain the results. When performed by a skilled, experienced provider, Juvéderm®‎ is both safe and effective. Patients who choose a reputable practice, such as RHD, reduce the chance for any serious complications to occur.

Side effects from JUVÉDERM®‎ are normally mild, but can include swelling, redness, and bruising at the injection sites. These will diminish quickly, usually over the first 24 to 48 hours. On the rare occasion, more serious issues such as facial asymmetry, infection, or an allergic reaction can occur.
