Dermal fillers are a top treatment for nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. While several filler product lines are available, the JUVÉDERM family of fillers is a versatile and popular choice for achieving a refreshed and youthful appearance.

At Plastic Surgeons of Alaska, we offer a personalized approach to facial rejuvenation. With a suite of JUVÉDERM options at our disposal, we tailor your treatment to your specific needs for results as individual as you are.

Different Formulations for Specific Uses

Whether adding volume to the lips, defining the jawline, restoring cheeks, or brightening the under-eye area, we select the ideal formulation to meet your needs.

The Best Type of JUVÉDERM for the Lips

JUVÉDERM Volbella® is our top choice if you’re looking for a fuller, more defined pout. With a formulation that’s ideal for enhancing the natural shape of your lips, Volbella creates soft, consistent fullness and improves curve and contour.

With JUVÉDERM Volbella, you can achieve a symmetrical and well-defined lip border for a subtle enhancement that complements and balances your facial features. We also like JUVÉDERM Ultra and Ultra Plus for lip definition and smoothing wrinkles around the mouth.

JUVÉDERM® for the Cheeks

Our cheeks naturally lose their youthful volume as we age, which can lead to a sunken or flattened appearance. Specifically formulated to replenish lost volume and enhance the contours of your mid-face, JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus is an excellent choice if you want to revive the plumpness of your cheeks.

The product’s smooth, viscous consistency creates a natural lift, offering a subtle yet transformative effect. It restores volume and enhances the overall shape of your face, providing a more rested and energized look. JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus can also improve your skin’s hydration and texture.

JUVÉDERM for the Jawline

JUVÉDERM Volux® XC is the premier choice for enhancing the jawline. As we age, our jawline loses definition due to changes in bone density, muscle mass, and skin elasticity. JUVÉDERM Volux XC addresses these concerns by adding volume to the jaw to contour, define, and create a more youthful and chiseled look.

This treatment is especially effective if you’re noticing a softening of your jawline’s angularity or an increase in skin laxity that diminishes its once-sharp contours. By strategically placing this filler, we can enhance the structure of your lower face for a more balanced and proportionate appearance.

JUVÉDERM® for Under the Eyes

Signs of aging often appear first in the delicate area under the eyes. Dark circles, hollowing, and fine lines can make you look tired even when you’re well-rested. JUVÉDERM Volbella is an ideal choice to address these concerns.

JUVÉDERM Volbella is a smooth, malleable gel formulated by blending different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid. This is particularly important for the under-eye area, where the skin is thin and needs a gentle, flexible filler. Volbella precisely fills in under-eye hollows for a bright, well-rested look.

Post-Treatment Expectations

JUVÉDERM works instantly to add volume and smooth out lines and wrinkles. Over the following days, as any potential swelling subsides, the full effects will become evident, revealing a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.

Minor swelling and any associated redness typically diminish within the first few days. Bruising can also occur, depending on the areas treated and your skin’s sensitivity. We recommend using a cold compress to alleviate any discomfort and to help reduce swelling.

You might also notice a feeling of fullness or tightness in the treated areas. This sensation is normal as your skin adjusts to the added volume from the fillers. As the hyaluronic acid integrates with the water in your skin, this feeling will settle, leaving you with the smooth, voluminous results you desire.

We’ll provide you with a detailed aftercare plan to ensure your recovery is as quick and comfortable as possible.

Maintaining Your Results

To help your rejuvenated look last longer, a few lifestyle adjustments can go a long way. Protecting your skin from excessive sun exposure with a broad-spectrum and high-SPF sunscreen, staying hydrated, and maintaining a healthy skincare routine help preserve the filler’s effects. Additionally, avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can prevent premature aging and prolong the results of your treatment.

While JUVÉDERM fillers are designed to last, the body naturally breaks down hyaluronic acid over time. Results typically last between 6 months to 2 years, and you’ll need periodic touch-ups to maintain them. The frequency of these touch-ups will depend on factors such as the specific product used, the area treated, and your body’s response to the filler. By scheduling regular follow-up appointments, we can help you keep your youthful and refreshed appearance consistent.
