Fill, lift and smooth your way to a more youthful appearing you. The Juvederm family of fillers by Allergan (Juvederm, Voluma and Vobella) are injectable gels composed of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring compound in our skin that attracts and binds water which helps our skin retain moisture. As we age, the hyaluronic acid content in our skin decreases resulting in less facial volume and more fine lines and folds on our face. With the Juvederm family of fillers we can replace this lost volume and create a more youthful appearing you. When used, these treatments have very high patient satisfaction rates and results that, with recent advances, last up to a year.
We use Juvederm primarily to improve parenthesis lines/folds around the mouth and to restore fullness to your lips. Over time, our cheeks lose volume and flatten resulting in loss of the youthful contour to our face and sagging skin. Voluma, as the name implies, is used to fill and restore this lost volume and returns your facial contours to a more youthful you. The newest member of the Juvederm family is Vobella. Almost every day, I have patients inquire about treatments for “smoker’s lines” around the mouth. Ironically, virtually none of these patients have ever smoked. Vobella was specifically designed to address this problem. Vobella is placed very superficially in these skin lines and then works by drawing water from the body into these lines which smooths them out. We can also use fractionated laser resurfacing treatments to improve these lines along with vobella.
Imagine undoing years of aging in 20 minutes, looking in the mirror and seeing a more youthful appearing you.
