Juvederm is a smooth gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring, colorless substance in your skin that helps to add volume, protect cells and hydrate the skin. During treatment, Juvederm injectable gel is placed beneath the skin with a fine needle to provide a smooth, natural wrinkle correction.
What Does Juvederm Treat?
Juvederm is FDA-approved for treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is biocompatible and effective for six months or longer. Treatment with Juvederm is suitable for those who exhibit:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Lip lines
- Hollow tear trough
Juvederm has also been used effectively in lip augmentation and facial contouring. During an appointment at our Indiana offices, we can determine whether Juvederm can meet your goals for cosmetic treatment.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC in Munster
The newest product by Juvederm is now available at our offices in Northwest Indiana. Voluma XC is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler of its kind. Dr. Robinson uses Voluma to instantly add volume to cheeks that have sunken or lost volume due to factors such as aging or sun damage. The treatment has been able to achieve lifting results for many patients. Voluma is not to be confused with the traditional Juvederm treatment, which is used for smoothing moderate to severe surface lines and wrinkles in the face. A Voluma treatment can be combined with the traditional Juvederm treatment or other injectable treatments for more youthful results.

What is Juvederm Treatment Like?
Treatment with Juvederm is simple and often requires only 15 minutes. If you are sensitive to injections, be sure to mention it beforehand. Although Juvederm contains lidocaine for added comfort, a dental block or topical anesthetic can sometimes be used to manage discomfort.
After your skin is cleansed, and the injection sites are selected and marked, Dr. Robinson will carefully inject Juvederm beneath the skin at the appropriate depth. He will then briefly massage the treated area to ensure a smooth result.
How Soon Will I See Results?
You can begin to enjoy a rejuvenated appearance almost immediately after treatment, once any swelling or bruising that has occurred has a chance to subside. Indirect application of an ice pack can help reduce swelling in the areas that feel overly full or are visibly swollen. Juvederm provides temporary results, so touch-up appointments are needed to maintain results. Most patients return for treatment within between six months to a year, after the body has metabolized the filler. Fortunately, it is often the case that less product is needed for later treatments.
Be sure that you refrain from alcohol, sun and heat exposure as well as strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours following treatment. Watch for unusual changes and contact our office if any symptom worsens or lasts longer than one week.
