Juvéderm™ and Voluma® XC are dermal filler injectables that can help you look younger and also provide lip augmentation. At Petroff Center, Dr. Petroff administers all dermal fillers and injectables. As a result, you are assured of a natural-looking result by a skilled and experienced facial surgeon who has an intimate understanding of facial anatomy. He works much like a sculptor to contour your face so that you look more youthful without his work being detectable.
Juvéderm™ is an injectable gel that gently reverses many signs of aging in the face, including fine lines and wrinkles, crow’s feet, thinning lips, and loosening skin. It can also “plump up” the lips, sculpt the cheeks, and restore a youthful, oval shape to the face.
It is made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that works with collagen and elastin to give volume and support to the skin. Because it is non-animal-based and highly biocompatible, no pre-treatment testing is needed.
Treatment takes only 15 minutes with immediate results and no downtime. Results typically last about 6-9 months and can be made to last even longer with a simple follow-up treatment a few weeks after the initial injection.
Voluma® XC is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel engineered to be placed in the cheek and midface region to restore a more youthful contour and subtly lift the cheek tissues. A more youthful appearance can be retained for up to two years with optimal treatment volumes.
With this non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment, Dr. Petroff can achieve an effect similar to cheek augmentation with implants.
How are dermal fillers administered?
After an examination of your facial anatomy and a discussion of your desires for your appearance, Dr. Petroff will determine the best locations and the proper dosage of your dermal filler injections. The formula of both products includes Lidocaine to numb the skin, but we can also apply a topical anesthetic to increase your comfort.
The injections take only a few minutes, and you can go home immediately.
What is recovery from Juvéderm or Voluma XC like?
No downtime is required after these injections. Some patients experience minor swelling, bruising, redness, and/or itching for just a few days, but any discoloration can be covered with makeup.
