Whether you are looking for a non-surgical face lift, smooth out a few fine lines, or fill in deep set wrinkles, JUVÉDERM injectables are for you. Millions of people use dermal fillers to achieve a more relaxed and smooth facial appearance while still having the freedom of expression. As skin ages, it begins to lose collagen filled with hyaluronic acid (HA). Collagen and HA add structure and volume to the face, therefore a lack of HA causes the skin to sag and wrinkle – that’s where dermal fillers come into play. Dermal fillers are smooth injectable gels made from naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers add volume to weakened facial features and can stimulate collagen growth. Each dermal filler is unique in its own way but similar in two. First, they plump skin and gently lift it to restore collagen loss due to the normal aging process. Secondly, dermal fillers motivate the body to create its own natural collagen and restore your face to a more natural, youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers approved by the FDA are minimally invasive and very safe. As with any procedure, there are possible risks, the most common being post-procedure bruising and swelling (which are usually very minimal and resolve quickly). Dermal filler treatments typically take 20-40 minutes. The amount of dermal filler needed will depend on volume loss and the areas you would like to restore to its natural beauty. You will see results immediately after treatment.
At Ageless MD we offer JUVÉDERM Ultra XC, Ultra Plus XC, JUVÉDERM Voluma XC, JUVÉDERM Vollure XC, and JUVÉDERM Volbella XC. XC just means the hyaluronic acid comes in sheets that are cross linked together to provide a stable ingredient that your body will not break down very quickly and will last a fairly long time when its injected into your skin. Ask your medical provider about which of these fillers will be best suited for you.
JUVÉDERM Voluma™ XC
A fairly new FDA-approved dermal filler formulated specifically to add volume to the mid face around the cheeks and chin, providing immediate lift. As we age, it’s all too common to notice sunken cheeks and a thinner appearance in the mid-face area. Voluma is designed to help restore youthful contours by plumping up these areas of volume loss caused by the aging process.
Juvederm Voluma™, from the makers of Botox® Cosmetic, is a safe and effective treatment that delivers a fuller appearance usually lasting between 12 to 15 months. The active ingredient in Voluma™ is hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance produced in your own skin that gives it a youthful look. As we age, the levels of hyaluronic acid and collagen decrease in our skin, causing our facial features to appear sunken with volume loss. JUVÉDERM Voluma™ is a great way to restore volume to the face and rejuvenate the skin for a naturally youthful appearance. Voluma™ is an excellent treatment for both men and women who are showing signs of aging and would benefit from facial contouring and restoring natural volume.
Where is JUVÉDERM Voluma™ XC used?
- Undereyes (tear trough) using a blended formula of Voluma
- Nose bridge
JUVÉDERM Voluma™ can be injected in small aliquots on the zygomatic bone (cheekbone) to give a pulling or lifting effect on your nasolabial folds. This effect, which is similar to that of a facelift, is called “Liquid Facelift.” It basically uses a liquid substance such as Juvederm Voluma to tighten the jaw and neckline. There is no downtime after the injections and you can resume all normal activities as soon as you leave the office. Some patients may have some local bruising or redness after injections, which can happen after any facial injections.

When a provider uses the product in an area that was not included in the original FDA study, it is considered an off label use of the product. Some “off label” areas that you can inject with Volella include: 11 lines in between the eyebrows, any fine lines in the face including thin fine lines around the mouth or even the horizontal fine lines or “necklace lines” on the neck. Volbella can also be used off label successfully in the tear troughs. It is a very fine and smooth filler so therefore it doesn’t have any lifting of filling capacities and would not be ideal to use for cheeks or anywhere that requires extensive filling.

Blunt Tip Cannula
This is a game changer for filler injections. Anyone not using some form of blunt tip cannula injection in their practice is not practicing with the patient’s best interests in mind.
Blunt-tipped cannula, or simply “blunt needle.” is a small tube with an edge that is not sharp. It’s designed for less traumatic injections of fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra, or Bellafill. Since it is not sharp, the blunt cannula simply glides underneath the skin in a plane that has little resistance and does not pierce or shear any structures such as blood vessels or nerves, etc. It glides and pushes these important structures to the side and minimizes the collateral damage. Blunt cannulas have revolutionized dermal filler corrections to make them safer, less painful, and with less downtime. Some areas still require some form of needles to be used to make the injections such as tear troughs, lips and some other areas that require very precise microdroplets of product to be deposited.
