Juvéderm® is one of the most popular minimally-invasive dermal fillers available for facial rejuvenation. It is an excellent option for filling in small, vertical lines around the corners of the mouth, and to smooth deeper nasolabial folds. In addition, it can add volume to facial tissue while sculpting the cheeks and chin and adding volume to the lips. Juvéderm® is composed of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a gel-like substance found naturally in our skin. No allergy testing is necessary prior to admission because it is biosynthetic and of non-animal origin.
Dr. Ravi, along with our trained medical aestheticians, will develop an individualized treatment plan at your initial evaluation. They will access the areas of concern and may also recommend chemical peels and skin care products from SkinCeuticals and microneedling with SkinPen®. Dr. Ravi, who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, will be the one to gently inject the filler beneath the skin into tarrgeting treatment areas, using a very thin needle. The entire process typically takes about 30 minutes to complete, but varies depending on the number of areas treated. The injections are extremely well-tolerated and only mild discomfort is reported by most patients. The most common side effects are injection site bruising or swelling for a few hours or days, but this dissipates quickly with ice packs or over-the-counter pain medications. Depending on the regions being treated, the effects of Juvéderm® last approximately six to twelve months for most people.
Areas of Treatment:
- Nasolabial folds
- Forehead wrinkles
- Lip augmentation
- Eyebrow deflation
- Corners of mouth (Oral commissure)

Juvéderm® Ultra XC
Juvéderm® Ultra XC is primarily used for contouring and adding volume to more superficial facial tissues to help improve the appearance of moderate lines and wrinkles. It is most commonly used at the nasolabial folds, forehead wrinkles, glabella lines, nasal and cheek furrows and to plump up thin lips.
Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC
Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC is formulated with a thicker gel and is designed to volumize deeper facial tissues. It can aide in improving more moderate to severe folds and wrinkles mainly around the nose and mouth.
Juvéderm® can play a significant role in any facial rejuvenation program and offers aesthetic benefits by improving or preventing facial wrinkles for the right candidate. Dr. Ravi also offers many longer-lasting surgical procedures to complement the use of Juvéderm®.
