Juvederm® Fillers

Our Skilled Injectors Smooth Wrinkles and Folds, Boost Volume, and Augment Facial Features in NJ

New Jersey and Philadelphia area residents have probably heard of dermal fillers, but may not know exactly what they are or how filler works. Dermal fillers are used to fill in wrinkles for smooth, even, and nearly instant results that are natural looking. Our injectors skillfully use Juvederm® at NJ's South Jersey Skin Care & Laser Center to help improve facial harmonics by adding volume to specified areas. By adding instant volume, wrinkles and folds can disappear within minutes, youthful contours can be enhanced, and specific facial features can be augmented. For many patients, results from their Juvederm® filler treatments at our New Jersey practice last nine to 12 months or more.

An initial consultation with Dr. Robin Levin prior to any treatment allows the patient an opportunity to discuss cosmetic dermatology goals and discover the recommended treatment options to meet the unique needs of each patient, which may include Juvederm® filler, if appropriate.

Dr. Levin and the team at South Jersey Skin Care embrace a natural look when it comes to Juvederm® filler treatments. They strive to set realistic goals for their patients to best address their concerns while avoiding an overdone finish. The best possible results are those that refresh and enhance the face while maintaining a natural, healthy appearance.

How Do Juvederm® Fillers Work?

The Juvederm® filler family from Allergan (manufacturer of BOTOX® and other products) is one of the safest and most effective lines of dermal fillers on the market. While they are all created with the same key ingredient (hyaluronic acid), each family member is formulated differently to achieve specific functions. Each Juvederm® filler is FDA approved to be used to improve one or more particular areas of the face.

It is important to note that while Juvederm® fillers and/or BOTOX® can achieve remarkable facial rejuvenation, they are not substitutes for an appropriate daily skincare regimen. The minimally invasive nature of fillers is well suited to patients who are not ready for surgery, have informed and realistic expectations, and complement their results with a healthy, customized skincare routine.

Some of the improvements that Juvederm® filler treatments can achieve include:

  • Smoothing lines, wrinkles, and folds (such as parentheses lines around the nose and mouth, lip lines, etc.)
  • Augmenting and reshaping the chin, cheeks, and lips
  • Correcting downturned corners of the mouth
  • Filling in recessed scars or hollows

Dr. Levin and her team can explain more about the difference between the different Juvederm® fillers and recommend which ones may be most appropriate to address your concerns.

Juvederm® fillers marked with “XC” contain lidocaine, a pain-relieving agent that reduces discomfort from the injection, as well as post-injection swelling or bruising. Ice can also be used on the treatment areas to further minimize any discomfort and to help with swelling. Makeup can typically be used after a treatment session to cover up any bruising.

Types of Juvederm® Filler

To comprehensively treat all our patients’ concerns, we stock the entire line of Juvederm® fillers at our practice. One or more of these products may be used on the face, depending on the number and type of concerns to be addressed. Dr. Levin will be able to discuss the specifics of a customized treatment protocol during a consultation.

Juvederm Vollure® in NJ

A loss of volume and vital elements in the skin can lead to the formation of wrinkles and lines, some of which deepen into more dramatic creases and folds as time goes by. While a youthful face is typically smooth, an aged face can be marked by lines that appear in a predictable pattern, such as nasolabial folds that form to either side of the nose and mouth and resemble the curve of parentheses. Juvederm Vollure® at South Jersey Skin Care & Laser Center softens these obvious lines to make them less severe—and thereby less noticeable.

 

Juvederm Vollure XC (frequently referred to simply as Vollure) is a hyaluronic acid-based filler designed to promote skin moisture and elasticity as it adds volume. It is ideal for moderate to severe nasolabial folds. When the treatment is handled by an experienced injector, results can last up to 18 months. Juvederm Vollure can be administered as needed over time, allowing patients to maintain their smooth, more youthful look.

Though Juvederm Vollure has a specific purpose as a dermal filler, every face is different and requires a personal touch in order for results to look natural. Dr. Robin Levin is experienced with the entire line of Juvederm® fillers and understands how each works. This knowledge, coupled with her extensive training and artistic eye, gives her the ability to create satisfying, long-lasting results with Juvederm Vollure at her South Jersey practice.

Is Vollure Right for You?

Juvederm Vollure™ is intended for women and men who are 21 or older, have never had allergy-related anaphylaxis, want to address their nasolabial folds and other lines near the mouth and nose, and understand their options and what Juvederm Vollure can and cannot do.

Dr. Levin and the South Jersey team work to make each patient as comfortable as possible, and sessions can take as little as half an hour, with results that have been shown to last for a year and a half.

How Does Vollure Work?

Since Juvederm Vollure has a hyaluronic acid base, it works much the same as hyaluronic acid found naturally in the skin, where it binds to water and provides moisture. Moist skin is pliant, elastic, and less prone to revealing wrinkles and lines. The physical volume of the filler also serves to replace natural collagen that gives the skin a smooth roundness, but that diminishes over time.

What to Expect After a Treatment Session

Juvederm Vollure injections are considered to be minimally invasive, in that they require no incisions or sutures. While there may be some slight redness and swelling at the injection site, there is no need for down time to recover from a session. The added volume will be apparent right away. Dr. Levin and the South Jersey Skin Care team will explain the importance of avoiding sunlight, when makeup can be worn again, and other important details to consider after the injections.

Juvederm Ultra Plus® is also FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as parentheses lines around the nose and mouth).

Juvederm Voluma® in NJ

Aging impacts the face in a variety of ways, with one of the most visible changes developing as facial fat diminishes and shifts downward. Juvederm Voluma® at South Jersey Skin Care & Laser Center addresses changing facial contours by restoring a roundness to the midface in what is known as the "apple." Added volume there also serves to tighten the skin, subtly pulling up sagging tissue that can form jowls. It can last up to 21 months or longer*, and many patients who choose this filler are able to improve age-related volume loss without surgery.

The tapering effect of Voluma® at South Jersey Skin Care & Laser Center can give the face a youthful inverted triangle shape. The tapering effect of Voluma® at South Jersey Skin Care & Laser Center can give the face a youthful inverted triangle shape.
Voluma® from South Jersey Skin Care & Laser Center can add volume to key areas of the midface, replacing fat pads that have shifted or dwindled, with contouring results that last up to two years.

Juvederm Voluma® (often referred to as just Voluma®) is based on hyaluronic acid, which makes it ideal for keeping skin moisturized and elastic—like all injectables in the Juvederm® line. It is designed specifically for use in the mid-face, where age-related volume loss can cause the cheeks to flatten. Under ideal conditions, results from a single treatment session can last up to two years. If patients have regular Juvederm Voluma® sessions to maintain a more youthful look, they may find that less product is required for future treatments.

 

Voluma® from South Jersey Skin Care & Laser Center can add volume to key areas of the midface, replacing fat pads that have shifted or dwindled, with contouring results that last up to two years. Proper application of Juvederm Voluma® requires not just knowledge of how to safely and effectively inject it, but also an artistic sensibility so that the results harmonize with the rest of the face and enhance it. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Robin Levin has the training, experience, and talent needed to consistently deliver customized, natural-looking results via Juvederm Voluma® at her South Jersey practice.

Is Voluma® Right for You?

Juvederm Voluma® injections are intended for patients who are older than 21, have never had anaphylaxis due to an allergy, are not allergic to lidocaine or proteins from Gram-positive bacteria, and want to correct their flattened cheeks and facial sagging.

Women and men who choose our South Jersey practice for their injections often report that the process was virtually painless. The effects—smoother, rounder facial contours in place of hollows due to volume loss—can last up to two years.

How Does Voluma® Work?

Hyaluronic acid is an important component in youthful skin, as it holds onto moisture within the framework of collagen that gives skin its resilient structure. Both collagen and hyaluronic acid diminish in the skin over time, so Juvederm Voluma® serves to bring moisture-retaining volume back to where it is needed. It can also serve to stimulate new collagen production, furthering its volumizing and rejuvenating effects.

What to Expect After a Treatment Session

Because no incisions are involved in this straightforward treatment, many people find that they return to daily life right after their injections. There are some cautions, such as avoiding sunlight and makeup for a time, which will be discussed in detail at the consultation and after.

Expected side effects are mild and include reactions common to injections: bruising, swelling, and redness. These all tend to resolve on their own within two weeks.

Juvederm Volbella® in NJ

Thinning lips and wrinkles around the mouth can be a disconcerting result of aging. Juvederm Volbella® at South Jersey Skin Care & Laser Center offers a quick and safe solution that can subtly volumize the lips and smooth wrinkles in the area, producing a youthful, yet natural-looking face.

Augment lips and smooth lip lines with Volbella in South Jersey.
When Dr. Levin performs an injectable treatment, she engages her medical expertise as well as her artistic eye to carefully boost volume and reduce wrinkles. Her nuanced ability to balance these aspects allows her to produce proportioned, natural-looking results with dermal fillers (such as Volbella®) at her South Jersey practice.

Juvederm Volbella® (or simply Volbella®) is the latest addition to the FDA-approved Juvederm® line of injectable dermal fillers for the facial area. A Juvederm Volbella® treatment can add subtle volume to the lips and cheek areas, as well as address vertical lines around the mouth. It contains a specific blend of hyaluronic acid in gel form, the key ingredient used to draw in moisture and keep skin voluminous and elastic. It can also encourage increased production of collagen, one of the skin's main support structures. Results can last up to a year. After this, patients tend to need less product in subsequent treatments to achieve their desired results. Juvederm Volbella® is safe to use multiple times, as may be appropriate for touch-ups or maintenance.

Her nuanced ability to balance these aspects allows her to produce proportioned, natural-looking results with dermal fillers (such as Juvederm Volbella®) at her South Jersey practice.

Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Robin Levin has worked extensively with Juvederm® products, and offers Volbella® injectable dermal fillers as a solution for patients who want to treat specific concerns such as thinning lips and vertical lip lines.

What is Volbella®?

Juvederm Volbella® is a smooth and clear gel injected with an ultrafine needle into the lip and mouth areas. The filler procedure is handled in office during a session that can typically take between 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the area or areas being treated.

Patients who received Juvederm Volbella® treatments at our South Jersey practice report that the injections are virtually painless and result in a smoother and tighter facial appearance. The effects last longer than those of some other fillers on the market.

Juvederm Volbella® treatments are suitable for patients who are older than 21, have had no severe allergy that resulted in a severe reaction (anaphylaxis), have no allergy to lidocaine, have no allergy to proteins from Gram-positive bacteria, and would like to have fuller lips and fewer wrinkles around the mouth area.

How Does Volbella® Work?

As with other Juvederm® products, Volbella® is formulated with maker Allergan's proprietary Vycross® technology, which blends together different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring sugar found throughout the body that helps maintain fullness and elasticity of the skin.

Hyaluronic acid is actively involved in moisture retention, which affects how skin looks, feels, and functions. It retains water like a sponge, being able to absorb more than 1,000 times its own weight. Over time, however, the hyaluronic acid supply in the body drops significantly, resulting in thinner and less elastic skin. Also, when skin is exposed to environmental pollutants and excessive sunlight, it becomes inflamed, which results in the cells in the dermis layer slowing down the production of new hyaluronic acid, as well as existing stocks degrading faster.

This loss of hyaluronic acid over time leads to wrinkles and reduced definition and balance in the face's natural shape.

The hyaluronic acid boost from Juvederm Volbella® works with water in the skin to restore lost fullness, soften lines and wrinkles, and subtly enhance lips. Patients who choose to get Juvederm® treatments may receive the added benefit of a collagen increase—the hyaluronic acid from the injections has been found to accelerate the formation of new collagen, which acts as a support structure for the skin. Ample collagen results in fewer wrinkles and longer-lasting results after a Juvederm® treatment session.

What to Expect After a Volbella® Treatment Session

Most people can resume their normal activities immediately following a Juvederm Volbella® treatment session. A patient may be advised not to wear makeup for up to 12 hours, as well as to avoid direct sunlight, saunas, and steam rooms for up to two weeks.

After a Juvederm Volbella® treatment session, patients have said that their skin both looks and feels very natural. The areas of treatment may be massaged to evenly distribute the fluid. Ice may also be used to help reduce temporary side effects such as swelling, bruising, and/or inflammation. Such side effects were found in studies to be moderate and only last for two to four weeks at most. If patients experience side effects for longer than four weeks after treatment, or if they have any other concerns, they should consult their doctor.

The results achieved from a Juvederm Volbella® treatment session can last up to a year under the right conditions—and in subsequent treatments, a patient's desired results can be achieved using less product.

The variety of molecular weights contained in Juvederm Volbella® (due to Allergan's proprietary technology) results in a blended gel form of hyaluronic acid rather than a liquid. This consistency helps it last for a prolonged period after being injected into the face. And since hyaluronic acid is not foreign to the body, the fluid is gradually absorbed over time. This makes Juvederm Volbella® safe for touch-ups or maintenance injections as appropriate.

Juvederm® Ultra is also used to volumize and reshape lips. However, Juvederm Volbella® adds a relatively subtler dose of volume, and can also be used to soften the appearance of vertical lip lines. Ultra may also be used to fill in wrinkles and add volume elsewhere, depending on what may suit your needs.

Juvederm® Filler Treatment & Recovery

One of the great benefits of an injectable filler as opposed to a surgical procedure is the quick treatment time. Some patients may experience some swelling or bruising around the injection sites, but this should subside quickly. In most cases, an entire treatment session takes approximately half an hour, and patients are typically able to carry on with their usual activities afterwards*, though they may be cautioned to avoid sunlight and physical exertion for a day or longer after their session.

Some patients report that they notice results right away. However, for the majority of our Juvederm® filler patients, optimal results appear a few days following the procedure.
