Juvederm

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a cosmetic treatment that is used to restore facial contours and improve signs of aging. Juvederm is also otherwise known as or referred to as a filler.

Types of Juvederms

Juvederm XC

As the skin loses elasticity and moisture, some people form relatively deep parentheses lines that frame the corners of the mouth and creases that run from the nose to the mouth (nasolabial folds). Juvederm XC adds volume beneath the skin to smooth these lines and folds. This was the original Juvederm product and is still the most popular.

Juvederm Voluma XC

Dr. Musick may call it “age-related mid-face volume loss” but you simply know it as sagging cheeks. Over time, as you lose the collagen to support your skin and as your underlying muscles weaken, your cheeks flatter. Juvederm Voluma XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area. Plump cheeks are a tenet of a younger look.

Juvederm Ultra XC

Most people don’t think of their lips as having lost volume, but our lips thin as we get older, just like our skin. Plus, some women aren’t satisfied with the fullness or their lips. Juvederm Ultra XC provides or returns fullness and fills the vertical wrinkles that form on our lips. This was the first dermal filler created for the lips.

“Excellent and professional all the way. Answers questions so you can be an informed patient. A friendly caring staff rounds out the experience.” – Martin W.
