With age, your face gradually loses its youthful fullness. Your cheeks may become sunken, your lips may start to thin and the folds around your nose and mouth may deepen, giving off a tired appearance. One way to reverse these early signs of aging is with JUVÉDERM®, the #1 dermal filler collection in the US.

Dermal fillers are a type of cosmetic injectable designed to add temporary volume to the face. In addition to restoring volume where it was lost, fillers like JUVÉDERM® can also be used to enhance the face by contouring and adding definition where it is desired.


JUVÉDERM® is a dermal filler collection created by Allergan Aesthetics, the makers of
BOTOX® Cosmetic. The company offers six different dermal fillers, each designed to address specific needs for different areas of the face.

All JUVÉDERM® dermal fillers contain a modified form of hyaluronic acid (HA) as their active ingredient. HA is a substance your body produces naturally and that is an important component of healthy skin. It helps your skin maintain hydration and helps keep it looking taut and plump. The same effect can be seen when modified HA is injected deep into the skin.

JUVÉDERM® fillers mainly work by adding volume to the skin. The HA in the formula attracts and holds onto water, bringing plumpness and hydration to the treated area. The treatment may also help boost collagen production in the skin, further increasing facial volume and skin elasticity.

Because JUVÉDERM® utilizes a compound that is a natural component of the skin and structurally similar to your skin’s own HA, the results are natural looking. There’s also minimal risk of side effects for this same reason. The effects of this treatment last many months and up to two years in some cases.

Our JUVÉDERM® Collection

At the Aesthetic Specialty Centre, we offer two types of JUVÉDERM® formulations to our Roswell and Greensboro clients:


This transparent, gel-like filler is a popular choice for the lips, as well as superficial wrinkles under the eyes, around the mouth and in the mid-face. It has a thin, smooth consistency, making it ideal for adding subtle volume to the skin and lips. The results are also natural-looking thanks to this. The effects of this filler can last up to 12 months, especially with good skincare.


Made with more cross-linking than some other products from this line, this filler is an ideal choice for patients with more prominent wrinkles, particularly nasolabial folds and laugh lines. Thanks to its robust consistency, JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC gives lift to the skin to help soften deep wrinkles and folds. The effects can also last up to a year with good skincare.

Because of their smooth composition, JUVÉDERM® Ultra and Ultra Plus are two of the most inconspicuous fillers that add structure and volume to the face.

Is JUVÉDERM® Right for Me?

If you are looking for a safe, natural-looking and long-lasting solution to fine lines, wrinkles, facial hollowing and thin lips, then JUVÉDERM® could be for you. These dermal fillers are intended to soften moderate to severe wrinkles in the mid-face, fill in facial hollows and enhance the lips in anyone 21 years and older.

While JUVÉDERM® fillers are considered generally safe and there are no special tests required before getting these injections, some patients may not be good candidates. If you have a history of severe, multiple allergic reactions, the FDA advises against this treatment. We also don’t recommend JUVÉDERM® to those currently pregnant or breastfeeding and those with active skin infections.

The JUVÉDERM® Treatment

This simple, in-office treatment starts with an in-person consultation with Dr. Yune and his aesthetic team. This is an opportunity for you to discuss your concerns and goals and for us to evaluate your problem areas and develop an individualized treatment plan.

Treatment is usually given on the same day as your consultation since there is no preparation involved. Your injector will begin by cleansing the targeted areas, followed by carefully injecting the product into the dermis, deep dermis or hypodermis, depending on the goals of treatment.

If you are pain-sensitive, we may apply a numbing cream before treatment to keep you comfortable. Each JUVÉDERM® syringe also contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic to help with discomfort. This means you should feel any pain; however, mild pinching or stinging is common.

The entire treatment takes 15 to 30 minutes to complete.

JUVÉDERM® Recovery & Results

You can resume your day as usual immediately after treatment. However, you may want to avoid the following for the first 24 hours to prevent product migration, infections and bruising:

  • Alcohol
  • Direct sun exposure
  • Saunas
  • Vigorous exercising
  • Touching or rubbing the area

Lingering soreness immediately after treatment is normal. Some patients experience mild redness, swelling or bruising following treatment. These effects resolve on their own.

Your initial results will be noticeable immediately after treatment. However, the product takes up to two weeks to settle and integrate into your skin. At this point you will see the final results, which may include smoother skin, improved facial contours and fuller lips. These results last between six and 24 months, depending on the type of filler used and the area treated.
