Wrinkles and Lax Skin
About JUVEDERM® ULTRA XC
Allergan Corp., the makers of both BOTOX® COSMETIC and the facial filler, JUVEDERM® awarded Berman Skin Institute the coveted “Black Diamond” classification. Allergan can detail physician experience on the basis of amount of medication administered to all patients annually, and their “Black Diamond” classification for Berman Skin Institute thus recognizes this center as one of the most experienced in the world for administering the combination of BOTOX® COSMETIC and JUVEDERM® facial filler.
JUVEDERM® is a “next generation” smooth gel, non-animal dermal filler offering a natural look/feel and long-lasting results for up to six months or longer. JUVEDERM® dermal filler lasts long because it’s the only dermal filler currently available with the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid and a special formulation process. This process creates a smooth gel that flows easily into the skin, creating smooth, natural looks.

Lasts up to 6 months, and is approved to temporarily smooth out and fill in moderate to severe nasolabial folds (the folds or wrinkles that go from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth).
Lasts up to 1 year. Over time, one’s skin loses elasticity and moisture, which contributes to moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. While serums and creams can help moisturize the skin’s surface, JUVÉDERM® XC adds volume to smooth these lines and folds, to help give one the natural-looking, long-lasting results one wants.
JUVEDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC
Lasts up to 1 year, and enhances lip size and reduces wrinkles around the lips
JUVEDERM® VOLUMA™ XC
Lasts up to 2 years. The cheek area loses its youthful shape as one ages. The cheeks flatten out and the skin may begin to sag. JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel is designed to temporarily reverse these signs of aging. It is a gel that is injected into the cheek area to lift the skin. It temporarily adds volume to the cheek area and results in a smoother contour and more youthful appearance to the face.
How Does it Work?
As the body ages, skin loses elasticity and volume. JUVEDERM® is placed below the skin’s surface to diminish the depth of facial folds and wrinkles.

Before Treatment Instructions
You should tell your doctor about all the medicines you are taking, even over the counter medicines or treatments. If you are taking blood thinners or medications that may interfere with clotting of the blood, such as aspirin, motrin, advil, naprosyn, please stop if possible for 10-14 days prior to your treatment to reduce the chance of getting a bruise. Vitamin E also thins the blood, so we advise that you stop taking vitamin supplements containing vitamin E three days before your treatment.
After Treatment Instructions
If swelling occurs, take an antihistamine pill such as Benadryl, or Motrin/Advil.
