The Juvéderm family consists of Juvéderm XC, Juvéderm Ultra XC, and Juvéderm Voluma XC, which are all used in the battle against aging. Depending on a patient’s needs, double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Anthony E. Brissett, can inject this filler wherever volume and hydration are needed. The hyaluronic acid dermal filler adds needed volume and hydration to thin lips, deflated cheeks, and the nasolabial folds (lines between the mouth and nose) to produce smoother, younger-looking skin. Consisting of hyaluronic acid (HA), this substance is found naturally in the human body and aids in providing structure to the face, giving it shape and volume. FDA-approved Juvéderm fights aging by spreading beyond the injection site to produce younger-looking skin for up to 1 year.

"amazing doctor - "if dr. brissett can't fix it, than nobody can"! - I can't even begin to say what an amazing doctor Dr. Brissett is. After several unsuccessful surgeries to fix my breathing problems, I was referred to Dr. Brissett, and I was told that "if Dr. Brissett can't fix it, then nobody can"! After meeting with Dr. Brissett, he expressed his concerns of the condition my nasal passages were in after several failed surgeries, but he also knew how..."- C. / RealSelf / Jul 23, 2018
"All of the comments said about Dr. Brissett are so true and more. I could go on for hours about Dr. Brissett. One very important distinguish criteria having to do with his practice is his staff. Having been married to the medical community I’ve had the opportunity to interact with a wide range medical staff and the staff will many times make or break even the best physicians. Andrea, Regina, Rachel and Roxana are not only personable and knowledgeable but they genuinely care about the patients. I hate to tell you how many years I’ve seen Dr. Brissett but he has almost 0 turn over during the time I have known him and I can totally understand why. Houston does have great doctors but they’re not as accessible/understanding of their patients needs/ etc. if The staff is not good."- M.F. / Google / Jul 19, 2018
The best candidates for Juvéderm:

- Have thin lips and desire plumper lips
- Have age-related volume loss in cheeks
- Desire long-term results
- Desire natural-looking results
What to Expect
Beforehand, the doctor will determine the appropriate formula, injection site(s), and the correct dosage to begin this in-office treatment. Since Juvéderm already has a numbing agent (Lidocaine) included, additional numbing usually isn’t needed. The filler will be delivered through a fine needle to the lips, cheeks, and/or wrinkles and lines around the nose and mouth. Patients will feel a small prick and a tingling sensation from the injection. The treatment typically lasts 30 – 45 minutes.
After the injectable, there might be slight redness in the treated area. There could also be mild swelling, but it should go away rather quickly. Since there’s no downtime associated with Juvéderm, patients can return to their normal activities immediately. The face will be dramatically improved immediately after the treatment, and most patients can expect reliable results for up to 1 year.
