Dermal fillers are a great non-surgical treatment used for facial rejuvenation. In fact, they are the fastest growing nonsurgical aesthetic procedure in the United States, according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. There are many different fillers available today that are designed to address different and specific concerns.
As we age, the natural volume of our youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds settle in. But with dermal fillers, you don’t have to let the years catch up to you! Dermal Fillers dramatically improve your appearance instantly and with minimal downtime.
When injected into a targeted area, such as your "smile lines" or "parentheses" (nasolabial folds) cheeks and lips, volume and the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles are dramatically improved.
Other common areas treated using dermal fillers include:
Facial lines and wrinkles, hollow cheeks, loss of volume in the face, tear troughs (under eye area) temples, nose irregularities, thin, aging skin and loss of volume on the hands.

Juvéderm® XC is the first and only non-surgical hyaluronic acid filler used to instantly smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, especially smile lines and marionette lines that form nose to mouth.
FDA-approved, Juvéderm® XC is considered the "next-generation" dermal filler.
What makes Juvéderm® XC different from other dermal filler is that it has the highest concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that naturally occurs in the body, regulates cell growth and renewal and gives the skin its volume and fullness. This cross-linking equates to long-lasting results that give a smooth, natural look and feel. With Juvéderm® XC, patients can achieve a fuller, younger appearance while still maintaining the natural features that define who they are.
Juvederm Ultra Plus® XC is very similar to Juvederm ®, however, Ultra Plus is recommended for medium or deeper lines and wrinkles of the face, such as the nasolabial folds. It is also useful for plumping up lips, earlobes, and cheekbones and filling acne scars. Generally, Juvederm Ultra Plus® XC is reserved for deeper wrinkles and lines and plumping up flattened areas.
