Injectable Fillers (Juvederm)

Blue Haven Medical Spa performs soft tissue augmentation of the face using Juvederm injections.  Juvederm is a gel made out of hyaluronic acid, a polysaccharide found in all living organisms.  Juvederm is injected into areas of the face where you have lost size and volume with aging.  It therefore plumps these areas giving them a natural, more youthful appearance without needing surgery.  The original FDA-approved use was to have it placed into the “nasolabial folds” which extend from the sides of the nose to the sides of the mouth.  Loss of volume in the nasolabial folds with age gives the appearance of “parentheses” around the nose and mouth.  In 2013, Juvederm Voluma became FDA-approved to treat volume loss in the cheeks and mid face.  Loss of cheek volume leads to a sagging or tired appearance to the face.  By first correcting cheek volume loss, you can improve facial contour and see a subtle lift effect of the face.  Juvederm Ultra XC, a thinner gel, can be used to plump the lips or fill in fine lines.  Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, a moderate thickness gel, is often used for the nasolabial folds and Marionette lines.  Juvederm Volbella is the most recent addition, gaining FDA approval in 2016 for treatment of vertical lip lines (cigarette lines) and for smoothing lip lines while adding very subtle volume.  The duration of effect depends upon the type of gel used.  Juvederm Ultra often lasts 6-12 months, Juvederm Ultra Plus usually lasts 12-18 months, Juvederm Volbella lasts up to 1 year, and Juvederm Voluma can last up to 2 years.
