Juvéderm® is an effective non-surgical treatment used to smooth your skin and return your facial contours to their naturally youthful and healthy state. The active ingredient is hyaluronic acid (HA), which stimulates collagen production in your skin, instantly filling in unwanted lines, enhancing lips, cheeks, and the jaw-line, as well as other areas. Benefits include added volume and definition of facial features while maintaining a natural, symmetrical and enhanced appearance.

Juvederm® Vollure™ xc
Allergan®, the makers of Botox® and Juvederm®, recently released their newest product, Juvederm Vollure™ XC. It has been approved by the FDA to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. This new product is special because it is the first and only filler that lasts up to 18 months!
Juvederm Vollure™ XC uses VYCROSS® technology, a blend of hyaluronic acids of different weights, which contributes to the duration of the gel. This unique balance subtly corrects moderate to severe facial lines and folds, especially in the nasolabial folds, oral commissures, and marionette lines.

are there side effects?
Possible side-effects include redness, itching, swelling or bumps. These reactions are usually mild to moderate and resolve within 7 days or less.
