WHAT IS A FILLER AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Dermal fillers, as the name suggests, is used to fill recessed, facial areas. It is a temporary, relatively painless procedure with immediate results.
A quick fix to soften facial wrinkles, plump lips and fill out any recessed facial areas. Fillers work by adding small amounts of volume along the crease or depressions. This volume plumps up the skin and reduces or eliminates the recessed area/crease.
The JUVÉDERM® Collection of products is the only line of hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers that offers customizable results proven to last from 8 to 18 months. It's currently the only HA filler to include an anesthetic that makes the experience more comfortable for you. It is also very smooth and natural looking, meaning that although people may notice a difference, they won't know you've had anything done!
JUVÉDERM® is the #1 chosen collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the US*. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® Collection of Fillers adds volume to a different area of the face—without surgery. All JUVÉDERM® fillers are smooth, crystal-clear gels that are administered by injection in your aesthetic healthcare provider's office.
The main ingredient in JUVÉDERM® fillers is a modified form of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). JUVÉDERM® fillers temporarily restore volume loss in certain areas of the face and help provide long-lasting, natural-looking results. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a sugar naturally produced by the body that retains moisture and elasticity in the skin. It is broken down by the body in one or two days and is constantly replaced. However, as we age, this replacement mechanism diminishes, and the moisturizing and plumping effects of HA decrease. For this reason, HA is used in dermal ﬁller procedures to help restore lost hydration and improve the skin's volume and elasticity.

JUVÉDERM® injectable gels labeled with "XC" contain pain-reducing lidocaine to help manage pain or discomfort during the injection. You may also ask your aesthetic healthcare provider about a topical numbing cream or ice to help further minimize discomfort.
Products in the JUVÉDERM® Collection are FDA-approved and have been widely studied. Numerous clinical studies have been completed globally evaluating the safety and effectiveness of Vycross® technology fillers. The JUVÉDERM® Collection of fillers are approved for use in adults aged 21 and. older.
Effects are visible immediately after injection. Our ﬁllers are reversible and non-permanent, although with ongoing treatment the time interval between successive treatments will extend as skin repairs itself beneath the folds and creases.
The most common side effects were temporary reactions at the treatment site, such as tenderness, bruising, swelling, lumps/bumps, redness, pain, firmness, discoloration, or itching. As with all skin-injection procedures, there is a risk of infection. Minimize exercise, sun or heat exposure, and alcoholic beverages within the first 24 hours following treatment to avoid worsening these side effects. Talk to your licensed specialist about post-care instructions following treatment.
Before treatment, Donna will have an in-depth consultation to understand your concerns and what facial features you would like to enhance. She will explain all the options to make sure that your treatment satisfies your expectations.
