Fillers Q & A

Advanced Dermatology Surgery Center

How do dermal fillers rejuvenate your appearance?

A thin layer of fat just beneath your skin adds volume to your face, helps minimize lines and wrinkles, and creates a healthy appearance. As you get older, this layer of fat naturally thins out, which makes wrinkles more noticeable.

You’ll also see cheeks that begin to droop and look hollow, as well as thinning lips. Dermal fillers are injected under your skin, where they replace volume and treat all of these aesthetic problems.  

What is Juvéderm®?

Juvéderm is the brand name of a group of injectable dermal fillers. They all contain a stabilized form of hyaluronic acid as the filler. Your skin naturally produces hyaluronic acid, which binds with water to moisturize and add volume to the skin.

What facial wrinkles are targeted by Juvéderm products?

Different formulas of Juvéderm target these problem areas:

Juvéderm Vollure™ XC: moderate to severe parentheses lines, from the nose to the corners of your mouth

Juvéderm Volbella® XC: lips and vertical lip lines

Juvéderm® XC: moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around nose and mouth

Juvéderm® Ultra XC: lips and parentheses lines

What facial areas are treated with Juvéderm Voluma® XC?

Juvéderm Voluma XC targets one problem area: cheeks that have flattened and sagged over time. You can correct this problem, called age-related midface volume loss, with Voluma injections that lift and contour the cheek area. This formula contains hyaluronic acid in a thick gel plus lidocaine that quickly numbs the injection area to ensure your comfort during the procedure.

What can you expect during and after treatment?

Before Dr. Kardashian starts any aesthetic procedure, she takes the time to talk with you about the features you want corrected and the results you expect to achieve. After determining which Juvéderm products will meet your goals, your skin is prepped, and treatment begins.

Juvéderm treatments take about 15-60 minutes, depending on the size of area being injected. You may experience some redness and swelling, but icing the area for 15-20 minutes helps diminish these side effects. Most fillers don’t require any downtime, so you can apply makeup and return to your daily routine.

How long do results last?

Dermal fillers using hyaluronic acid produce immediate results. The results achieved with Juvéderm products last one to two years, depending on which product is injected.* Juvéderm Voluma XC keeps your cheeks plump up to two years.

*Individual results may vary.
