juvedermWhat is Juvederm?

JUVEDERM® XC is much different than Botox in that it fills the wrinkle or crease rather than relaxing the muscle. Because JUVEDERM® XC is a dermal filler, rather than a muscle relaxant like Botox, it can be used to provide volume and definition to the borders of the mouth and lips. JUVEDERM® XC is FDA approved for the treatment of lines and creases, and is a safe, effective option to smooth out the natural lines of the face.

JUVEDERM® XC  is a smooth consistency, gel made of hyaluronic acid-a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. It works so well because of its ability to absorb 1,000 times its weight in water. JUVEDERM® XC easily fills in wrinkles, folds and creases in the skin while also plumping the lips because of its unique ability to absorb so much water. Today it is infused with lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment.

Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA).  As you age, sunlight and environmental toxins can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds – like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth. JUVEDERM® XC fills in creases and folds therefore decreasing the wrinkle lines.

As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. Recently approved by the FDA, JUVEDERM injectable gel is a ‘next-generation’ dermal filler. The smooth consistency gel helps to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your ‘smile lines’ and nasolabial folds-the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth.

JUVEDERM is a smooth consistency, synthetic gel made of hyaluronic acid-a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. In fact, studies show superior results of JUVEDERM compared to a collagen-based dermal filler. Almost 90% of all study volunteers who were treated with both JUVEDERM injectable gel and another dermal filler preferred JUVEDERM! In addition, JUVEDERM injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.

With JUVEDERM the injection process takes only about 15 minutes and results are immediate. Plus, there’s minimal recovery or downtime. So you can step into Dr. Mickel’s office for treatment and step right back into your life.

I regularly get Juvéderm filler in my lips. I completely trust them when injecting me. The staff is awesome; they don’t treat you as just another patient, but as a friend. I always get compliments on my pouty lips and people are shocked when I tell them they have been injected.
