Juvéderm is a highly sought after family of dermal fillers. Juvéderm products are the top selling dermal fillers in the United States. Juvéderm formulations were first approved by the FDA in 2006. Dr. Jeanine Downie, the founder of image Dermatology®, was involved in the initial Juvéderm clinical trials. Dr. Downie can personally attest to the results of Juvéderm as well as many other injectables she offers. With Juvéderm, Dr. Downie has corrected moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as lines around the nose and mouth, known as nasolabial folds, laugh lines, and smile lines.

In 2013, Allergan introduced Juvéderm Voluma XC to add volume to the cheeks. Dr. Downie has enjoyed a more youthful appearance as a result of Juvéderm Voluma XC, as she uses it personally in her own face. In October 2015, another use for Juvéderm XC was approved by the FDA – lip augmentation. Now, patients over age 21 can attain fuller lips with a product they have loved over the past decade. Restylane Silk is another dermal filler available at image Dermatology® that was approved by the FDA for lip augmentation. Dr. Downie is delighted to provide her patients either option when it comes to plumping their pouts.

Juvéderm XC now leads as a lip augmentation treatment that can provide the longest lasting results – up to a 6 months, possibly longer. Dr. Downie was an investigator in this clinical trial as well. In the clinical trials, the majority of patients reported an improvement in lip smoothness and softness through one year. They embraced the natural look and feel of their lips as well. Three months after treatment, 79 percent of them reported significant improvement in lip fullness. At one year after treatment, more than 78 percent of them reported an overall satisfaction with the look and feel of their lips.

Juvéderm products are popular because they are composed of hyaluronic acid, a modified form of a naturally occurring sugar in the body. The role of hyaluronic acid is to deliver nutrients and help the skin retain its natural moisture and softness. Juvéderm Voluma XC is a gel formulation with a small amount of local anesthetic (lidocaine) to improve comfort. When injected safely and effectively, Juvéderm XC can reverse the signs of aging in the lips.
