Lift, smooth, or plump your way to natural-looking results that last. JUVÉDERM® is the #1 selling collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the US. Each product in the JUVÉDERM®collection of fillers adds volume to a different area of the face to lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, or plump the lips. The results are natural looking and long lasting. The JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers is made from hyaluronic acid (HA). What’s interesting about HA is that it’s a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers is made from a modified form of HA. Dr. Dees administers the treatment during a brief office visit. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, JUVÉDERM® XC, and JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC contain lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during treatment. If you’re still concerned about treatment discomfort, Dr. Dees may offer additional anesthetic options for you.

Subtle lift. Beauty breakthrough.

Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA®XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area.

When treated again after 2 years, patients needed less product to achieve their results.

Parentheses have a place—but not on your face

Over time, your skin loses elasticity and moisture, which contributes to moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. While serums and creams can help moisturize the skin’s surface, JUVÉDERM®XC adds volume to smooth these lines and folds, to help give you the natural-looking, long-lasting results you want.

When treated again after 1 year, patients needed less product to achieve their results.

Natural-looking lips that last

Whether you’ve noticed your lips thinning over time, or simply want fuller lips, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC can give you natural-looking results that last.

78% (58/74) of people treated experienced improvement in satisfaction with the look and feel of their lips 1 year later. When treated again after 1 year, patients needed less product to achieve their results.
