Juvederm™ in Frisco, TX

Juvéderm is a FDA approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler used to treat wrinkles in the skin and add volume to facial features.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural sugar found in the skin that acts as the skin’s moisturizer, and as we age, HA begins to deplete. Age also takes its toll on collagen depletion and the loss of both results in less supple and firm skin and the development of wrinkles and volume loss.  Expressions and sun damage exacerbate the process, leaving many of us looking older than we feel.

Juvéderm is used to “fill” out the sagging skin, smoothing the wrinkles and replacing lost volume. It’s delivered underneath the skin’s surface through a tiny injection in the target area, then it’s smoothed evenly into place. The Juvéderm will remain in the area treated for 9 – 12 months or longer depending on where it’s placed. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and therefore Juvéderm also dissolves naturally with time and is integrated into your body’s tissues.

Juvéderm is used to treat the following areas:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Parenthesis (smile) lines
  • Corners of the mouth
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Lip augmentation
  • Cheeks
  • Jaw line

Depending on the area being treated, most patients only need one dosage of Juvéderm, and enjoy the results for 9 to 12 months without the need for maintenance. The great thing about Juvéderm filler is that you can always start with a very conservative amount and add more if you so wish. And like wise, it isn’t permanent, so an unwanted change will go away with time.

To ensure unwanted results are rare, Juvéderm has fine-tuned their product into three different versions. Juvéderm Ultra, Juvéderm Ultra Plus and Juvéderm Voluma are formulated slightly different to target specific areas on the face. They’re all in the same family of all natural hyaluronic acid fillers and are used to treat wrinkles of the face, but the size of the particles differs.

Juvéderm Ultra is a smaller particle size and is used to treat mild to moderate lines and wrinkles and some scars. It’s “smoother” and used in more superficial applications, such to enhance the lips. Because of its thinner consistency, this version has the shortest duration, approximately 9 months.

Juvéderm Ultra Plus is a medium sized particle and is used to fill deeper wrinkles and to add volume. It’s primarily used to fill nasolabial folds and to treat jowls. Ultra Plus has a duration of approximately 9 – 12 months.

Juvéderm Voluma has the largest particle size and is injected deeper into the skin for an overall increase in volume. It’s used to lift and fill cheeks and replace volume in the midface. Voluma has a duration of up to 2 years.

The best results with any Juvéderm filler will be determined by the skill and experience of the person administering it. Dr. White has been treating patients with Juvéderm for years and she has a reputation as one of Frisco’s best injectors. She has a “less is more” approach and her patients tend to think their results look natural, yet more youthful.

If you’re in the Frisco area and are thinking of getting a Juvéderm treatment, please contact us for a consultation. The treatment can be done in a short visit to our office, usually lasting about 30 minutes.
