What are Juvéderm facial fillers?

Juvéderm offers a range of hyaluronic acid-based, gel injectable dermal fillers in Michigan. Hyaluronic acid is found in every cell of the body. As dermal fillers, these injections are used to treat mild to moderate facial creases, add fullness, and smooth wrinkles. They are comprised of non-animal sources, mimic the natural moisture binding qualities of the skin, and are safely and naturally re-absorbed over time.

All of the following Juvéderm products are available in Dr. Ringler’s Grand Rapids, MI plastic surgery office.

  • Juvéderm XC
  • Juvéderm Ultra XC
  • Juvéderm Voluma XC
  • Juvéderm Volbella XC

Juvéderm Ultra XC:

Smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles

Juvéderm Ultra XC is a formulation which includes lidocaine for enhanced comfort. This new formula contains a small amount of local anesthetic, which enhances comfort during your treatment. Juvéderm Ultra XC can be used just like regular Juvéderm – for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.

In clinical trials with the new formula, 94 percent of participants said Juvéderm Ultra XC was less painful than regular Juvéderm dermal fillers when injected into the nasolabial fold. To further minimize discomfort, Dr. Ringler can numb the treatment area with a local anesthetic.

Facial Fillers Michigan

Juvéderm Voluma XC®:

Plump aging cheeks for up to two years

Juvéderm Voluma XC is an injectable gel that is FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore a refined contour and a more youthful profile for up to two years in Michigan patients over the age of 21.

It’s different than Juvéderm XC and works on a different area of the face. Juvéderm XC smooths out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth. Juvéderm Voluma XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area.

Juvéderm Volbella®:

Subtly reshape the lips

Volbella is a soft hyaluronic acid filler that addresses fine lip lines around the mouth and provides a subtle smoothness and sheen to the lips. Most other fillers are too thick to be used successfully around the mouth, which makes Volbella a great addition to the injectable line. Results with Volbella last up to one year.

Am I a candidate?

If you want to look younger with a natural, non-surgical outcome, you may wish to consider injections of Juvéderm.

Age alone does not define candidates for facial rejuvenation. Grand Rapids, MI women and men of various ages choose non-surgical facial rejuvenation to delay or improve visible indications of facial aging. However, it is important to note that Juvéderm Volbella has not been tested on patients younger than 22 years of age. These factors generally define good candidates for Juvéderm:

  • You understand what Juvéderm dermal fillers can and cannot accomplish
  • You accept the potential risks of Juvéderm and your responsibilities as a patient
  • You are healthy and emotionally stable
  • You have realistic expectations regarding your results
