Juvederm Dermal Filler
Boca Raton, Palm Beach Florida.
Ennis Plastic Surgery is proud to offer Juvederm, a revolutionary dermal filler injectable. As we age, the thin skin of the face loses elasticity and slows in cellular turnover. In addition, a lifetime of expressions including laughing, smiling, squinting and frowning can leave deep creases and fine lines. With aging, we naturally lose the fullness and plumpness of our youth, leaving less volume in the face and lips. Fortunately, modern medicine has found a solution to restore the fullness and vitality to the face, reducing fine lines and wrinkles and restoring facial volume.
Dermal fillers restore lost skin volume, decreasing the appearance of creases and fine lines. By restoring volume and reducing fine lines, the face looks more youthful and refreshed. Dermal fillers act as a liquid facelift, offering specific and exact revitalization to the needed areas of the face. Juvederm injectable filler allows you to reduce fine lines and restore lost facial volume without altering your ability to achieve natural facial expressions.

Juvederm Dermal Filler Photos (before & after)
Juvederm is often used to smooth the lines around the mouth, plump the lips and erase years from the face. Juvederm Injectable gel is a safe and effective gel treatment that restores lost volume to the skin, smoothing away moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles. Juvederm is FDA-approved and has been proven safe and effective for people of light and colored skin tones.
- Juvederm XC gel is used for injection into the facial tissues, correcting moderate to severe facial folds. Creases found between the nose and lips are excellent areas to target.
- Juvederm Ultra XC is meant for injection into the lips and areas around the lips, augmenting the shape and creating greater fullness.
- Juvederm VOLUMA XC gel is meant for deep injection in the cheeks to correct for age related volume loss, restoring a more youthful and full appearance.
Juvederm works because the active ingredient, hyaluronic acid, is a naturally occurring complex sugar that is found in the human body. Hyaluronic acid hydrates the skin, adding volume. As we age, our own cells lose their ability to naturally produce hyaluronic acid, often resulting in facial wrinkles and lost skin volume. Juvederm is given in small doses, directly into the targeted facial folds, filling the area and restoring volume.
Juvederm, from Allergan, is the only hyaluronic acid dermal filler that was developed using a proprietary, technologically advanced manufacturing process, giving a malleable, smooth gel. This unique gel injects easily into the skin and facial tissues, creating a smooth and natural look. Juvederm is natural, biodegradable and safe for patients of all skin colors and textures.
What to Expect before and after Juvederm
All clients are engaged in an individualized consultation, in which the patient will discuss his or her concerns, goals and desired outcomes. Here, the patient can ask any questions about the treatment procedure, recovery and expected results. If the patient chooses to undergo Juvederm injections, the procedure is quite simple.
The injections are placed according to the area to be treated. Most commonly, facial lines are addressed in the folds around the nose and lips. In addition, volume is commonly restored in the cheeks and lips. For this procedure, the clinician will prepare and sanitize the skin prior to injection. Topical or injectable pain relievers may be used during the Juvederm procedure in order to numb the area to be treated and ensure patient comfort. The clinician will strategically place the Juvederm injection at specific injection sites along within the facial folds. The whole process only takes approximately 10-20 minutes for one treatment. Results are visible immediately and typically last for up to one year. Lasting up to one year, Juvederm is the longest lasting hyaluronic acid product available today. Risks and side effects include tenderness and swelling to the treatment area or risk of allergic reaction. As with any injection procedure, there may be risk for infection.
Difference between Relaxers and Fillers
Juvederm is a type of dermal filler. Oftentimes, people are confused between fillers and relaxers. Dermal fillers and relaxers can generate some similar outcomes, reducing fine lines and wrinkles and restoring a more youthful appearance. However, their mechanisms of action are much different.
- Dermal fillers work by plumping wrinkles and concavities in the face. They lift areas of sagging skin and volumize the lips.
- Relaxers work by relaxing the muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. They temporarily block muscles from contracting, impeding their ability to cause lines in the first place.
Depending on your area of concern, the clinicians at Ennis Plastic Surgery will be able to direct you to the best treatment option. Some individuals have excellent outcomes by utilizing both fillers and relaxers for a treatment we call the Liquid Facelift.
