With age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, which results in the loss of volume and contributes to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Plateroti Dermatology offers Juvederm® XC injectable fillers to help our patients immediately restore volume to the face and smooth facial lines and folds. Plateroti Dermatology is a “results based” practice and we are committed to helping our patients achieve their aesthetic goals through individualized treatment plans and combination therapy.
What is Juvederm® XC?
Juvederm® XC is a hyaluronic acid-based injectable gel filler that is used to restore volume to the face and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. It can also be used to treat bags under the eyes, restore volume to the hands, and subtly enhance the lips. Juvederm® comes in two formulations, Juvederm® Ultra and Juvederm® Ultra Plus, to provide the best treatment of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. Juvederm® Ultra Plus is a thicker formula and is ideal for improving deeper wrinkles and folds. Juvederm® has been proven to be safe and effective on all skin tones and has no increased risks of hyperpigmentation.

What are the Benefits of Juvederm®?
- Quick treatment sessions
- No downtime
- Immediate results
What can I expect during an injection session?
Juvederm® is injected into the skin using a fine needle. Lidocaine is used to decrease any discomfort associated with the injection. Results of the injections are immediately visible. There is no downtime associated with Juvederm® injections and most patients are able to immediately return to work and other normal activities. Injection sessions typically take about 15 to 30 minutes and can easily be scheduled during a lunch hour.
How long will my results last?
Juvederm® injections typically reduce the appearance of wrinkles for up to 12 months. Results may vary depending on the treated area and the condition of wrinkles prior to treatment.
What’s the difference between BOTOX® and Juvederm®?
BOTOX® is an injectable form of botulinum toxin, not a dermal filler. BOTOX® injections target dynamic wrinkles formed by the repeated contraction of muscles in the face. BOTOX® soften fine lines and reduces the appearance of frown lines and crow’s feet by temporarily relaxing specific facial muscles. The effects of BOTOX® injections gradually develop over the month following the injection session and typically last for up to four months.
Juvederm® is an injectable hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler used to restore volume lost with age and correct facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm® is commonly used to fill in marionette lines and nasolabial folds and restore volume to the face. The results of Juvederm® filler are immediately visible following an injection session and can last up to 12 months.
