Juvéderm is an FDA-approved injectable dermal filler to restore volume to the skin while smoothing away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. This injection is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that hydrates tissue and adds volume . Unlike other hyaluronic acid fillers, which usually have granular consistencies, Juvéderm is a amooth gel that is easily injected into the skin and produces immediate, natural-looking results.
Juvéderm Vollure XC is the newest hyaluronic acid dermal filler to correct the moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the nasolabial folds - the creases around the mouth. It is commonly used to restore the volume in this area with results lasting up to 18 months. Juvederm Vollure XC is formulated with the Vycross® technology that contributes to the product's lasting effects. Other Juvederm products with this formulation include Voluma for to restore volume loss in the cheeks and Volbella for lip augmentation and fine lines around the mouth.
During your appointment, the treatment areas will be marked and thoroughly cleaned. Lidocaine contained within the Juvederm will help make you comfortable during your injections. Local side effects include redness and bruising immediately after the injection. Many patients are able to return to work with no downtime after their 15-30 minute Juvederm procedure. Our expert plastic surgeons will provide you with more information at the time of your consultation.
Juvéderm & Juvéderm Vollure XC Reviews
"Bye-Bye Nasolabial Folds - Florham Park, NJ - Top-notch plastic surgeon! I've been going to Dr. Colon for 15+ years. I wouldn't go to any other cosmetic surgeon for surgery or injectables. He's *very* well-credentialed, highly experienced and gifted; importantly, he's a scientist at heart, not a money-hungry marketer of every beauty fad that comes along. I trust him."- D. / RealSelf / Jul 29, 2015
"I had my very first appointment today with Dr. Lange and I am blown away by how wonderful he is. He took a great amount of time listening to my concerns and explaining what he could do, how he could do it and his personal aesthetic while also taking into account my personal aesthetic. His demeanor was extremely pleasant as was the assistant who was with him in the exam room. The procedure itself was done meticulously with every attention given to detail and symmetry. I walked out knowing I had found my new doctor. In addition, the front desk office staff were lovely and very warm. Highly highly recommend . Outstanding!!"- N.A. / Yelp / Mar 01, 2017

During your consultation, we will discuss the various fillers that are available today and will work with you to understand your aesthetic goals so that the best filler choice can be made.
Will The Injection Hurt?
Our team will work hard to ensure patient comfort. We often apply a local, topical anesthetic before the injections to numb the area.
What Other Anti-Aging Options?
Although fillers have proved to be a terrific solution to make skin appear younger, there are other options to consider. Fat grafting, Fraxel, Skin Care, BOTOX and Dysport, as well as plastic surgery, all hold the potential to provide tremendous improvements to the skin. During the initial consultation, our team will discuss the comprehensive options and give recommendations for the absolute best procedures tailored to each patient’s desired outcome. This may include a combination of cosmetic treatments.
Will I Look 20 Again?
A Juvederm injection reduces fine lines and wrinkles for a softer appearance. While this product will not make you look 20 again, it will minimize the lines and wrinkles on the face, restore loss of volume and provide a youthful glow that many patients desire. It is important to set realistic expectations. This will be discussed in detail during your consultation.
