Hyaluronic Acid (HA) dermal fillers are the popular choice for replacing the skin’s structure and volume to correct wrinkles and folds. It is also a very popular product used to augment lips and cheeks. Ness Plastic Surgery has chosen the JUVÉDERM® line of products from Allergan because of their effectiveness, texture, and reliability.
JUVÉDERM® softens the lines and wrinkles that can make you appear tired, sad or even angry. Gives your face a more youthful and natural look. JUVÉDERM® can also be used to augment upper or lower lips to give a naturally fuller appearance.
How It works
JUVÉDERM® XC is injected into the dermis (underneath the skin) into the areas of moderate to deep folds and lines in the face or to increase volume that is lost as we age. Popular areas that are treated by Paula at Ness Plastic Surgery with JUVÉDERM® include: lips, cheeks, nasolabial folds (smile lines), lower eyelids, and deeper lines and crevices such as chicken pox and acne scars.
Who It’s For
Men and women ages 18 and above can benefit from JUVÉDERM®. Our Wayzata, MN location offers JUVÉDERM® appointments with Paula Aman, PA-C.
Q: What is JUVÉDERM® XC?
A: JUVÉDERM® is dermal filler gel made of hyluronic acid (a natural sugar found in the body) to increase the volume in the face that is lost over time, as we age. JUVÉDERM® also has a numbing medicine in it called Lidocaine. This will help increase your comfort during the injection.
Q: How long does it last?
A: JUVÉDERM® can last anywhere from 9-12 months. This can vary from person to person. It can depend on the area it is injected and how quickly your body breaks down the filler.
