Juvederm XC + Juvederm Ultra XC + Juvederm Voluma XC
Used to Restore Volume and Smooth Lines and Folds
The Juvederm family of products are hyaluronic acid fillers, similar to Restylane products. In its natural form, hyaluronic acid is a sugar found in the skin and joints. Hyaluronic fillers are synthetic, biodegradable versions of these naturally occurring sugars and are considered to be extremely safe. Juvederm XC is a smooth gel that is used to effectively restore volume and smooth facial wrinkles and folds. It is an excellent product for the under-eye area, along the nasolabial folds (also known as "smile lines"), and for use in lip augmentation. Juvederm Ultra XC Plus is a more robust version of the Ultra variant and is used in cases that may require a thicker product. Juvederm Voluma XC is the newest filler in the Juvederm family and is used to add volume to the cheek area. We have been waiting for this product for a long time. It's a great filler for the cheeks—the essential place to fill for any filler patient.

Our "expert injector" Lizette is responsible for the excellent lip plumping above. It's a real art, requiring a fine touch. The upper lip should always be at least one-third the size of the lower lip. Sometimes one lip needs more filler than the other. Using these principles, we can always achieve a pleasing, natural result. You shouldn’t be nervous to fill the lips—if done correctly, even just a little filler can make a big difference.
