The Juvederm® Family
Enjoy the Results of This Popular Filler in MilwaukeeWith Juvederm® at the Milwaukee-based ReFresh Aesthetic Center™, our certified nurse/nurse practitioner injectors can restore lost volume to smooth out wrinkles and create more youthful facial contours. Sometimes called dermal fillers, injectable fillers, or facial fillers, these gels do not contain animal products, so the risk of developing an allergy to Juvederm® is almost nonexistent. There are several formulas to choose from, all made from hydrating hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally produced in the body. As we age, we produce less hyaluronic acid, which is what causes the skin to dry out, lose volume or shape, and form wrinkles and creases.
Juvederm® DetailsJuvederm® fillers can be used to diminish smile lines (also called nasolabial folds) and marionette lines, decrease vertical lip lines; enhance and restore volume to the cheeks, mid-face, and jawline; reduce under-eye hollows and diminish dark circles; add volume to thin lips; and more. As with other dermal fillers, the results of Juvederm® treatments are sometimes referred to as a nonsurgical facelift or “liquid lift.” The effects can last for a year—or even up to two years, depending on the specific filler used. The most advanced Juvederm® fillers are formulated using state-of-the-art VYCROSS™ technology, which creates a gel that utilizes both low- and high-molecular-weight technologies to improve the cross-linking efficiency of hyaluronic acid chains. This allows us to use less gel during treatment, which decreases the chances that patients will experience excessive swelling. Because less product is used, patients are able to obtain results that both look and feel natural. Juvederm® XC products also contain lidocaine, which helps to numb the area to be treated, minimizing discomfort from the injections. We also apply a topical anesthetic cream prior to treatment to minimize discomfort during the injection process. Each appointment is scheduled for an hour or less. Common responses with any dermal filler, such as swelling, bruising, and settling of the product, can be seen following treatment. However, these responses resolve within just a few days. One of the advantages of Juvederm® is that there is virtually no down time necessary. Within a few days, once the Juvederm® has settled into the treated area or areas, you will begin to see and enjoy your ReFreshed look and feel. We’re proud to bring this exciting family of fillers to patients in the Whitefish Bay, Glendale, Brown Deer, River Hills, Shorewood, Mequon, and Milwaukee areas of Wisconsin.
