As we get older, our bodies slow down the production of collagen. This is an essential building block that assists the skin in maintaining its youthful appearance. Over the course of time, this will lead to a loss of volume, prominent wrinkles, and a saggy appearance in one’s facial contours. At IconMD Medical Spa + Laser Center, we understand how troubling it can be to deal with these signs of aging so we proudly provide the Juvederm family of products to help address them.
Before & After
At IconMD Medical Spa & Laser Center, we like to focus on the after results because how you look and feel
post-treatment is what counts the most.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is apart of a family of dermal fillers that are designed to replenish lost volume and rejuvenate one’s youthful appearance. Unlike Botox, these fillers do not work to relax facial contractions that are responsible for the formation of wrinkles. Instead, Juvederm is designed to plump up the skin from the inside out and fills in wrinkles and deep folds.
Juvederm products are composed of a hyaluronic acid-base. This is a substance that occurs naturally in the human body and assists the skin with maintaining moisture. In addition to the standard Juvederm treatment, there are a variety of Juvederm products available to address the specific needs of each individual patient.
Types of Juvederm
Juvederm Voluma is an injectable gel that’s administered into the cheeks to gently lift the skin and restore volume that’s lost as a result of the natural aging process. Voluma utilizes an advanced cross-linking technology known as Vycross the spreads easily throughout the skin to provide a long-lasting lift that can take years off of one’s appearance.
Juvederm Volbella is the perfect solution for those who desire lip enhancement that looks natural and beautiful. Unlike surgical methods of lip enhancement, Juvederm Volbella is a minimally invasive treatment that can specifically target the signs of aging around the lips while improving lip volume. It can be used to give the lips more definition and fill in wrinkles that appear around the corners of the mouth for a significant improvement in one’s aesthetic appeal.
Juvederm Vollure is specifically designed to address nasolabial folds and the parenthesis lines that appear around the mouth. This injectable is composed of lidocaine to provide an anesthetic effect which helps improve comfort during the injection process. It can help smooth moderate to severe wrinkles and fine lines, providing a subtle but beautiful result.
The Benefits of Juvederm Products
Every type of Juvederm is composed of a hyaluronic acid-base to provide a pleasing transformation. These fillers can also improve the production of collagen which assists in enhancements that continue to improve over the course of time. This means the initial transformation you see is just the beginning. Juvederm will continue to improve your look as it settles in and boosts collagen production.
As a minimally invasive injectable treatment, Juvederm is also performed as an outpatient procedure. This means you can safely return home soon after it is completed. There’s no long period of downtime to worry about and you can return to your normal daily activities without any issues. Even though Juvederm is a temporary boost in one’s aesthetic appeal, the results are long-lasting with some patients experiencing improvements that last up to a year or more.
The Best Candidates for Juvederm
Juvederm products are great options for those who desire a beautiful transformation that looks natural without having to undergo invasive surgical procedures. The best candidates should be in good physical health and have realistic expectations. We’ll perform an initial examination of your facial contours and skin quality, and ask you about your medical history to help determine if you would make a good candidate for Juvederm.

For many people, watching our youthful looks fade away as we get older can be stressful and bring about insecurities with our age and appearance. From the development of fine lines and wrinkles to the loss of volume, the aging process can change our looks in a number of different ways. Fortunately, there are many different cosmetic options available for fighting these signs of aging. One of the most popular rejuvenative treatments available is known as Juvederm XC.
What is Juvederm XC?
Juvederm XC is an injectable dermal filler that can help restore one’s facial contours and erase the signs of aging. This dermal filler is composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance that’s found naturally in the human body, to help improve the skin’s ability to retain moisture. Unfortunately, our bodies begin to produce less hyaluronic acid and collagen as we get older. This is one of the biggest factors responsible for our aged look. Juvederm helps to replenish this production of collagen and hyaluronic acid to give our skin a youthful boost.
There are different Juvederm products available and each one differs in its bonding and concentrations of hyaluronic acid. Juvederm XC is particularly is best used for addressing the loss of skin elasticity and filling out wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
How to Prepare for Your Juvederm XC Treatment
Before undergoing a Juvederm XC treatment, it is important that you first schedule a consultation where we can discuss pre-operative precautions you must adhere to in order to achieve the best results.
Since Juvederm XC is a minimally invasive treatment, you do not have to worry about highly invasive techniques. However, patients undergoing the procedure should avoid taking certain medications, drinking alcohol, and smoking in the time leading to the treatment. Staying clear from these can help prevent bruising in the treatment area.
Your Juvederm XC Treatment Process
We will begin your Juvederm XC procedure by marking the areas to be treated. We will then inject the Juvederm XC into the target area and lightly massage the area to evenly distribute the solution and decrease the chance of swelling. The process will take about 15 to 30 minutes to complete depending on the area(s) treated and patients can safely return home the same day it is performed.
What to Expect After The Juvederm XC Process
After undergoing a Juvederm XC treatment, patients can expect to experience some swelling, bruising, redness, and minor discomfort in the treatment area, but this is temporary and will subside quickly. We advise that you avoid strenuous activity, sun exposure, and wearing makeup for 24 hours after the treatment.
Good Candidates for Juvederm
Good candidates for Juvederm XC are men and women who desire a youthful rejuvenation without the need for invasive surgery. Those currently dealing with mild to moderate signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, and the loss of skin elasticity around the nose and mouth can benefit from a Juvederm XC treatment. Patients should be in good physical health and have realistic expectations.

Similar to other types of Juvederm, Juvederm Ultra XC is an injectable dermal filler that’s composed of hyaluronic acid, water, and lidocaine.

The total amount of time spent performing the treatment depends on the area(s) treated and the number of injectables required to achieve the desired results.

What to Expect After a Juvederm Ultra XC treatment
After undergoing a Juvederm Ultra XC treatment, you will see some immediate improvements in the look and feel of your skin but you can expect them to improve over the course of time. This is due to the improved production of collagen and hyaluronic acid in your body.
