Active collagen production stops in our early 20s, leading to a steady decline in the natural support structures that keep skin plump, firm and youthful looking. As time goes by, this decline in collagen and elastin support leads to wrinkles and folds, which are the first physical signs of aging. We can replace this lost support with hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers such as those in the Juvéderm family of products. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity. At Blaine Plastic Surgery, we offer several types of Juvéderm injections at our clinics in NYC Midtown, Huntington and Staten Island.
The Juvéderm family of products are all formulated to act like your body’s own naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, restoring volume to your face. Each product has its own unique variations and indications for different areas including:
- Lip enhancement
- Softening of nasolabial lines (“laugh lines”) and marionette folds
- Reducing perioral lines, commonly referred to as “smokers’ lines,” around the lips
- Creating more mid-face and cheek definition for a more lifted appearance
The goal for any injectable filler procedure is simply to replace the volume that has been lost, restoring your own natural, youthful look. This will not change the way your face moves, expresses or feels. We want you to look like you, just a little younger and more refreshed.
Dermal Filler Treatments for Lines, Lips and Facial Contouring
Juvéderm is constantly updating formulas to create options for treating different trouble areas. Some are designed to be used for fine lines and wrinkles near the surface of the skin or in the lips, and these are more flexible and softer. Other formulas are meant to be used deeper in the skin for filling smile lines or contouring the face. Some of the formulas we offer include:
- Juvéderm XC
- Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC
- Juvéderm Voluma XC
- Juvéderm Volbella XC
- Juvéderm Vollure XC
These products are naturally and safely metabolized by your body over the course of 6-24 months, depending on the specific product, amount of product, patient’s metabolism and treatment area. Treatments can be performed as a “lunchtime” procedure, with almost immediate results and no downtime.
Juvéderm injections at Blaine Plastic Surgery offer patients a safe and instant rejuvenation with minimal discomfort and downtime. Your expert injector will design a personalized treatment plan specific to your anatomy, lifestyle and aesthetic goals.
