Is Juvederm right for me?

There is no perfect candidate for Juvederm. Any patient of any age can benefit from one or many of the products in the Juvederm suite. If you seek to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, correct hollows or depressions of the face, add volume to the cheeks, or eliminate unappealing facial folds, you are a candidate for Juvederm. Those seeking adjustments to their lips and a smoothening of their mouth area could also benefit from the Juvederm lip series, which can add subtle or more pronounced enhancement to the lips and eliminate the fine lines and wrinkles that surround the mouth.

What is a Juvederm treatment like?

Juvederm is a minimally-invasive, non-surgical procedure that is done while the patient is awake. The treatment is not painful because the numbing agent lidocaine is an active ingredient in Juvederm fillers; however, the patient may feel slight pinching when the needle is inserted. If needed, Dr. Miller can apply local anesthesia or a topical numbing cream to ease discomfort. Dr. Miller uses a very thin needle to administer the Juvederm directly under the skin. The amount of filler used and its exact placement is determined by the scope of correction desired.  Though it may not seem like it, there is a great deal of artistry and skill involved in filler treatments. An untrained or inexperienced practitioner may not understand subtlety and leave a patient with the dreaded ‘duck face.’ For the best results, it is important to choose an experienced plastic surgeon who specializes in facial cosmetic procedures like Dr. Miller.

Juvederm explained

Juvederm is a powerhouse filler that lasts long and is composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body. Juvederm is a smooth, viscous gel that produces immediate results when injected under the skin. There is a full suite of Juvederm solutions, each with its own specific benefits. Dr. Miller will assess which product is best suited for you during your free consultation.

Juvederm Voluma

Has age caused your face to flatten or sag? Juvederm Voluma is especially indicated to plump and contour the cheeks as well as add lift to the mid-face. Voluma is also great when used to contour and define the chin.

Juvederm Vollure

Nasolabial lines and marionette lines can be bothersome and make you look older than you are. Juvederm Vollure is designed to reduce the appearance of these lines and smoothen the area, keeping your smile bright but your laugh lines minimal.

Juvederm Ultra & Ultra Plus

Have your lips flattened with age, or perhaps always been thin? The Juvederm Ultra series can give you the luscious, plump lips of your dreams. With a steady hand and a deep knowledge of facial and labial cosmetic enhancements, Dr. Miller uses the Ultra series to give his patients a younger, vibrant pout.

Juvederm Volbella 

Like the Ultra series, Volbella is ideal for adding volume and contour to the lips. Dr. Miller uses this product to subtly increase lip size and meticulously sculpt the lips, as well as soften lines around the mouth. Volbella also smooths out wrinkles on the lips themselves, and like the other variations, lasts for up to a year.

Recovery from Juvederm

There is no downtime necessary for Juvederm treatments. It is important to avoid strenuous physical activity for a day or two, and avoid saunas, hot tubs, tanning beds, hot showers, and excessive heat in general. Some patients experience the following side effects, though they subside in a few days.

  • Tenderness
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Discoloration 
  • Itching

Juvederm’s results speak for themselves

Dr. Miller loves Juvederm for a reason: it is versatile and it works. Juvederm can fill slight depressions just starting to appear, keep the eyes looking youthful, and help the mid-face stay elevated and supple. Not only can it maintain facial contour and fill imperfections in younger patients, it can also elicit a significant degree of correction for those who need it, but wish to avoid surgery. With Dr. Miller, it’s about making specific, deliberate adjustments that yield beautiful, natural-looking results.
