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.
"Thank you Dr. Brissett and team for your amazing work! - Dr. Brissett is the BEST Facial Plastic Surgeon around!! I had a previous consultation with a different DR and was misdiagnosed and told my bump was a dermiod cyst and I’d have to have it cut out over the cyst which could leave a scar on my face. I decided to visit Dr. Brissett for a second opinion I’m so glad I did. Not only was it not a dermiod cyst but the procedure could be done at the hai..."- C. / RealSelf / Feb 24, 2019

"Dr. Brissett Goes Above and Beyond in Making You Feel Comfortable! - I’m a female in college and woke up one morning with a hemangioma on my lip/chin. It was not the most pleasant thing to look at and was advised that it was best to get it removed. Finding the right surgeon was very important to me. I consulted with a lot of doctors that were not invested in my physical appearance, rather they were more concerned with getting the hemangioma out and the a..."- M. / RealSelf / Jan 09, 2019

The best candidates for Juvéderm:

- 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.
