The Juvederm® Family
Enjoy the Results of This Popular Filler in Milwaukee
With 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® 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.
“I have been a client of Arleen More O’Ferrall since 2007. I find Arleen refreshing with her professionalism and clinical expertise. She is incredible with her ability to place BOTOX® and dermal fillers such as Restylane®, Juvederm®, and Radiesse®, leaving me looking rested and naturally revitalized. Arleen’s consultative approach assures me that she is most concerned with my expectations of results. I am 50 years old, and people are constantly surprised when they hear my age. I look much younger, but natural, which is the philosophy of Arleen’s practice. I couldn’t speak more highly of Arleen.”

Juvederm Ultra® and Ultra® Plus
Ultra® is ideal for adding volume to thin lips, making them plumper and fuller. Your treatment will take about an hour, and you will probably need just one treatment to achieve the results you want.
Juvederm Volbella® XC
Volbella®, approved by the FDA in June of 2016, is intended for lips and fine lines. It can be used to restore or subtly enhance lip volume and hydrate the lips, smooth vertical lip lines, soften marionette lines, and add a beautiful, symmetrical contour to the lips. Best of all, the results of a single injection session have been known to last up to one year, so patients don’t have to return for periodic injections every few months to sustain their new, natural-looking lips.
Juvederm Vollure™ XC
The consistency of Vollure™ sits in a “sweet spot” between Volbella® and Voluma®. This filler, for softening fine lines and folds, rejuvenating the lips, and filling under-eye hollows, can last up to 18 months. Because this formulation allows for minimal swelling, it also results in minimal downtime.
Juvederm Voluma® XC
The natural aging process can cause a loss of volume and contour to the cheeks, leading to a sunken, hollow appearance. Voluma® XC treatments can help maintain the natural shape of your cheeks/midface with long-lasting results and minimal downtime. The hyaluronic acid in the formula binds with water within the skin to create instant volume and lift that can last for up to two years with optimal treatment.
