Why injectable fillers?
The way your skin looks is directly related to the way your skin is supported. Collagen is the naturally occurring component of skin that is part of the support structure of skin. Wrinkles form when this natural collagen layer thins during the course of aging. Injectable fillers are implanted in the skin directly into the areas where collagen has weakened. Depressions in the skin can be raised to the level of the surrounding skin. Thus, lines and scars can be minimized.
How is Juvederm® used?
One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to wrinkle treatment. A customized treatment plan is important for achieving the best results. That’s why Juvederm® is available in more than one formulation. Juvederm® has the versatility to contour and volumize facial wrinkles and folds, and Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC, a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and facial wrinkles. This allows your healthcare professional to tailor treatment to meet your unique needs.

When will you see results and how long does Juvederm® last?
The results are immediate. Juvederm® lasts 3-12 months.
Does it hurt when you get Juvederm®?
We use topical anesthetics for the injections. Also, Juvederm® XC is now formulated with lidocaine, a common anesthetic used to improve the comfort of the treatment.
How much does Juvederm® cost?
Typically Juvederm is priced per syringe and most treatments require one to three syringes. Please call our office at 269-372-7600 for more information and current pricing.
Who should not get Juvederm®?
Juvederm® should not be used in patients who have multiple severe allergies, a history of anaphylaxis, a history of allergies to gram-positive bacterial proteins, or allergy to lidocaine.
Are there any pre-treatment instructions?
To reduce the risk of bleeding and bruising, avoid alcohol, aspirin, anti-inflammatories, vitamin E, and Ginkgo Biloba, for 2 days prior to treatment. If you have a history of oral herpes simplex or cold sores, you should be pre-treated prior to the procedure.
What are the side effects?
Treatment side effects are usually mild to moderate, lasting 7 days or less, and include temporary injection-site reactions such as redness, pain, firmness, itching, discoloration, swelling, and lumps/bumps. As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
