Facial Shaping or Liquid Facelifts

The cheeks, cheek bone area or malar area can be treated with Juvederm Voluma to try to give a lift to the face or liquid facelift. Under the eyes or the tear troughs can be treated with Juvederm Ultra or Ultra Plus. For around the mouth, facial rejuvenation or wrinkle correction is easily achieved with Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm injectable gel is a dermal filler that is used to restore your facial skin and shape volume in order to smooth away facial wrinkles and folds like your “smile lines” or “parentheses”, also known as nasolabial folds.
Juvederm is a temporary filler that lasts up to 12 months for Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus. Juvederm Voluma lasts up to 24 months.
Why does Juvederm come in three formulations?
Juvederm injectable gel is available in three formulations in order to tailor treatment to your unique needs. Juvederm Ultra provides versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm Ultra Plus is a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles. Juvederm Voluma is also used for volumizing but it lasts up to two years.
How is Juvederm injectable gel different from BOTOX?
Juvederm is a wrinkle filler that adds volume and is used to treat wrinkles and folds resulting from a loss of volume beneath the surface of the skin such as perioral lines and nasolabial folds (lines around your mouth and nose). Botox relaxes muscles and therefore smooths the wrinkles that result from your muscles constantly working. Botox is not a filler.
Juvederm is made of hyaluronic acid. What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found mostly in joints that attracts water. In addition to its use as an aesthetic treatment, hyaluronic acid has also been used for more than 20 years for injection into arthritic joints to aid movement as well as for eye surgeries and wound repair.
How is Juvederm injected?
Dr. Windle eases Juvederm injectable gel into the skin using a fine needle or micro-cannula. He can essentially airbrush the product into place using specialized techniques with these fine needles and micr0-cannulas.
How long does treatment usually take?
The injection process for Juvederm takes between 15 and 30 minutes. You’ll also need to allow time to consult with Dr. Windle prior to treatment so that he can come up with just the right treatment for you.
Who can inject Juvederm?
Any authorized healthcare professional can administer Juvederm. However, you should see an expert injector such as a dermatologist, plastic surgeon, ophthalmologist, otolaryngologist (ear, nose, and throat doctors), or physicians specializing in cosmetic procedure are generally more experienced.
