As we age, our face loses natural volume and youthful contour – as the cheeks flatten, the skin below tends to sag and “jowls” begin to form. Dermal fillers are the nonsurgical solution to address and restore the natural facial volume relationships and contours with added benefits of natural collagen stimulation and minimal downtime. They can also be used as subtle lip fillers and to enhance cheek volume and lift the face. The fillers we use are all ones that are made of substances natural to our bodies. The duration depends on which filler we use, some lasting 6-12 months and others 12-18 months.
Double the chins, double the self-consciousness. Sometimes they’re an inevitable trait passed down through family. Sometimes they’re the last thing to go after dieting and getting toned. Either way, they can be treated with Kybella®, the first FDA-approved injectable treatment to reduce fat under the chin.
Kybella® is a non-surgical procedure that mimics the body’s natural fat-absorption process, so you can skip the liposuction. The injection contains a man-made form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring material that helps the body absorb fat. So in no time, your double chin will be a thing of the past. And, so will any issues of self-doubt.
Are you bothered by moderate to severe wrinkles on the lower face? Have you exhausted all of your at-home anti-aging treatments and would like a non-surgical alternative for reversing visible signs of aging?
Affected Areas: Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. Juvéderm is FDA approved filler that can turn back the hands of time by restoring youthful volume to many areas of your face. It can be used in areas such as Lips, nasal labial folds (smile lines), marionette lines (lower corners of the mouth), and smoker’s lines around the lips. Juvéderm is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration to your skin. Almost anyone who would like to quickly reverse visible signs of aging with a minimally-invasive treatment can benefit from JUVÉDERM®. Among the top-selling collections of HA fillers, JUVÉDERM® encompasses many treatment procedures. Each formula is designed to lift, plump, and contour different areas of the face, targeting features that have begun to sag due to a loss in volume.
How Juvéderm Works
Your healthcare professional will gently place Juvéderm under the skin to provide a smooth, natural look and feel. The procedure takes about 15 minutes and can easily be fit into a lunch hour. After the injections are done, the treated area is gently massaged to ensure the smoothness of the product placement.
To avoid the risks of temporary redness or swelling, patients should avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours. Some patients experience injection-related reactions, including redness, pain, firming, swelling, bruising, or bumps. These are normally mild and diminish within 7 days

Juvéderm is much smoother than collagen and it is easier to manipulate and sculpt for a more natural look and feel. Additionally, Juvéderm lasts over three times as long as collagen.
