Juvederm Filler Treatments
Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC
Facial cosmetic fillers are used to temporarily add volume to the face and restore a more youthful appearance. Juvederm is used to inject moderate to severe facial wrinkles by adding volume back to the skin. The injections can be administered around the nose and mouth and can enhance all facial contours. The skin appears smoother and fine lines and folds are rejuvenated.
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid gel that contains a small quantity of local anesthetic, lidocaine. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the body. Hyaluronic acid provides natural hydration to the skin by holding water. This injectable procedure has minimal discomfort and patients are typically provided with a local or topical anesthetic prior to treatment.
Dr. Mardirossian uses advanced injection techniques to minimize discomfort and downtime.
The treatment takes between fifteen and forty-five minutes. Patients can return to work immediately after the treatment. Patients may have minimal redness, inflammation and bruising at the treatment site, which typically resolve within a few days. Results last 6 to 9 months or longer. Dr. Mardirossian performs Juvederm injections in his office. Your complimentary consultation with Dr. Mardirossian will determine which cosmetic filler is best for you.
Voluma is the newest cosmetic filler by Allergan Aesthetics. Voluma is used for midface correction. Natural aging results in volume loss in the cheek and this area tends to flatten and the skin’s elasticity drops. Using Juvederm Voluma to lift the skin in the midface can produce a smoother contour and a more youthful look.
Voluma consists of a thick hyaluronic acid that is naturally occurring in the body. The injection of Juvederm Voluma replaces age related volume loss in the cheeks. The treatment has minimal discomfort and patients can return to work and resume normal activities immediately after the treatment. Voluma injections have minimal side effects and results can last up to 2 years.
