Return Youthful Volume to Your Face and Lips with These Proven Options:
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is the latest advancement in the JUVÉDERM® range of facial fillers, developed specifically for your lips and mouth area. It is a crystal-clear gel that is injected using an ultra-fine needle and includes Lidocaine gel to improve the comfort of the injection (XC means extra comfort). It has been specifically developed as a smooth gel to give a soft, natural feel. The gel fills in lip lines and wrinkles while the hyaluronic acid within attracts and retains moisture, so results can last up to a year. A study showed that 98% of people who had JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC with Lidocaine reported that their lip appearance goals had been achieved, with results lasting up to 12 months.
JUVÉDERM® is one of the newest, non-surgical, injectable fillers used to restore the skin’s volume. JUVÉDERM® does an excellent job of softening deep folds and reducing and correcting wrinkles and nasolabial folds. You’ll see the difference immediately with no downtime.
JUVÉDERM® is offered in two formulations: JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC (for areas where subtle volume enhancement is required) and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus (for correction of deep folds and wrinkles). JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus costs the same and lasts about three months longer.
JUVÉDERM® is injected at the mid to deep dermis (beneath the surface of the skin). Some people like the comfort of a dental block in the area, while others find the brief procedure very tolerable. Other approved hyaluronic acid treatments are granular in consistency, but the smooth consistency of JUVÉDERM® allows the injection to be given with relative ease. Side effects may be redness, mild pain/ tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/ bumps, or mild bruising. Most reactions subside in just a few days.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
For a gentle lift that’s instant and long lasting.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC helps create a more youthful appearance by restoring lost volume to the cheeks and cheekbones, providing natural-looking, long-lasting results for up to two years with optimal treatment. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the smooth gel filler that instantly adds volume to the cheek area, provides a gentle lift, and smooths away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. It helps contour and create a more youthful profile for up to two years.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is the first and only hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved for the correction of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds and laugh lines and marionette lines that lasts up to 18 months in people over the age of 21. Many of us want to “fill and forget it”. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is very appealing for that reason. Clinical study results of 18 months are based on optimal correction. Results may vary.
Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus
Juvederm now comes in two forms: Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus. The XC means that lidocaine has been added to the product for an anesthetic effect during the injection.
The difference between Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus is the size of the particles, with Juvederm Ultra Plus having a larger particle size, and so, a longer duration of action. Juvederm Ultra typically lasts six to nine months while Juvederm Ultra Plus usually lasts nine to twelve months.
The softness of the Juvederm family of products generally makes them excellent choices for treating nasolabial folds and the corners of the mouth. These products are also usually a good choice for plumping the lips. Juvederm Ultra is a little softer than Juvederm Ultra Plus, but they are both very useful products for similar areas of the face.
Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Ultra XC Plus are similar in how they spread out into the tissue slightly more than other facial filler products. They absorb more water when injected so Juvederm injections swells more than some of the other products, giving a nice filling and plumping effect.
Restylane® is a cosmetic dermal filler that replaces lost volume and restores youthful contours to the skin, greatly reducing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds and nasolabial folds (the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth). Restylane® is approved by the FDA for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane® is also highly popular for lip augmentation.
Restylane® lasts an average of four to six months. Restylane® is injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts with an ultra fine needle. The procedure is simple and results are immediate. For your greatest comfort, you may request that we anesthetize the area.
Restylane® is a great choice for redefining a lip border, facial decations, facial scarring, chin augmentation, and softening acne scarring. It is also excellent for diminishing worry lines between eyebrows, smile lines, crows feet around eyes, marionette lines at corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds), and smokers lines. Restylane® can be used for creating a temporary eyebrow lift, correcting facial decations caused by fat loss, and softening the appearance of jowls.
RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler
Replenish lost volume and look younger longer with RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler.
RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler is FDA-approved for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Not only does this wrinkle filler give you immediate results, it also continues to provide added benefit by stimulating the production of your own natural collagen. By adding instant volume, wrinkles and folds can disappear immediately – and in many patients, results lasted a year or more.
- Smile lines, also called nasolabial folds, which run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth
- Marionette lines, which begin at the corners of the mouth and extend down toward the chin
- Corners of the mouth can begin to turn downward, giving the look of a constant frown
- Pre-jowls that form along the jaw-line

The Difference between Botox and Facial Fillers

Sick of deep lines on your face? Wishing you could get a quick fix for the signs of aging around your mouth and eyes?
You may think that Botox is your only option, but in fact there are other injectable cosmetics that plastic surgeons use to treat some lines on the face. That’s why it’s important for individuals to understand the difference between injectables like Botox and facial fillers, like Juvederm.
What Botox does:
According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS), Botox is a neuromuscular toxin, and while it is the most widely recognized brand name for this type of cosmetic, there are other variations that have FDA approval, namely, Dysport and Xeomin. The injectable medicine is used to treat “active” facial lines, meaning those that have only recently formed. A board-certified plastic surgeon will inject the cosmetic into facial areas that are associated with the formation of wrinkles. For example, the muscles you use to frown may be responsible for lines around the mouth, so a plastic surgeon can use Botox to artistically alter facial expressions. This won’t result in a loss of the ability to show emotions on the face – the intention is to make subtle changes that will stop lines from forming while promoting a natural appearance.
