Fillers are one of the most often administered treatments after BOTOX Cosmetic. Have you thought of why that may be the case? It is because fillers offer immediate results. Rather than just looking in the mirror and wishing that things could be different, you have the ability to change some of them without surgery. Fillers offer a means of improvement that can appear to be subtle or profound. Performed in the safety of Dr. Friedlander’s office in New Jersey JUVEDERM can help to turn back the clock instantaneously, resulting in an immediate improvement and restored self-confidence.

JUVEDERM is a hyaluronic acid filler that restores natural facial contours to improve or reverse the signs of aging by hydrating and plumping the skin. Both men and women experience loss of facial volume, thinning of the skin, and the descent of facial tissues (skin, muscle, and fat) due to aging, gravity, sun damage, and genetics. If you are looking for customized enhancement for a variety of aging concerns, look no further than JUVEDERM New Jersey plastic surgeon Dr. Friedlander can use products from the JUVEDERM family alone or together to provide customized results and improvements in both your appearance and your self-image.

“Filler” is a term that was coined to identify what these products do. They restore the natural contours to the face and improve the signs of aging. Simply put, they fill the valleys known as wrinkles and fine lines. The most commonly used filler substance, hyaluronic acid (HA), is naturally found in the body. As we get older, the rate of production of natural HA and collagen decreases, resulting in the gradual onset of fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers, such as JUVEDERM, are able to restore some of this loss, resulting in a more youthful appearance. They are different from BOTOX Cosmetic, which also treats fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX Cosmetic reduces muscle contractions to treat dynamic lines, which are caused by repeated movement. Fillers like JUVEDERM address wrinkles and lines that are present at rest and caused by gravity and the natural aging process, also known as static lines.
Each filler behaves differently after being injected because of subtle differences in their structure and density. The result, however, is the same: plumper, more youthful skin with fewer, less noticeable wrinkles.
The largest group of fillers falls into the category of hyaluronic acids (HAs). These are a group of naturally found sugars in the body that plump or hydrate the skin by helping to replenish the natural volume. Don’t worry, these products are not animal-derived and are not associated with allergic reactions like their predecessor, (injectable) collagen. HA fillers like JUVEDERM are unique in that they can be dissolved with an enzyme called hyaluronidase if you are not happy with your results.
JUVEDERM is appropriate for adults who are not ready or do not feel as though they require surgery but are still interested in minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and restoring the volume lost with age and gravity.
This injectable treatment is ideal for static lines, which are present even when your face is at rest. Candidates for JUVEDERM should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations of their results. Most individuals considering JUVEDERM experience at least one of the following:
New Jersey plastic surgeon Dr. Friedlander asks that you stop all use of aspirin, NSAIDs, and any other blood thinners before your JUVEDERM treatment, as blood thinners can increase the chance of bruising.
You should also stop all tobacco use for at least four weeks before and after your treatment to minimize your chances of complications. Before your injectable treatment, an ice pack will be placed on the site to increase comfort. All JUVEDERM products contain lidocaine, and a topical ointment may be applied before the injection to ensure that there is little or no pain.
JUVEDERM is modern gel filler known for its flexibility. It is manufactured by the creators of Botox and Latisse, and is intended to improve facial wrinkles and folds. It is available in several formulations.
Some individuals have naturally thin lips, whereas others experience the loss of lip fullness with age. JUVEDERM Volbella restores lip fullness and treats lines around the mouth. This is one of two fillers in the JUVEDERM family that is FDA approved to restore fullness around the mouth. This injectable is ideal for subtle lip enhancement and correction of “smoker’s lines.” Dr. Friedlander creates a natural appearance by injecting conservatively, which means you don’t have to worry about “duck lips” or being overfilled. As hyaluronic acid fillers attract moisture, you can be assured that your lips will maintain moisture and softness after your treatment.
JUVEDERM Ultra has a smooth gel consistency that allows it to flow smoothly and easily for the subtle improvement in superficial to moderate fine lines and wrinkles. It is hydrophilic, so it draws water into the tissue, helping to hydrate and smooth wrinkles. This injectable is ideal for vertical lines around the lips as well as more prominent nasolabial folds. It was the first filler to be FDA-approved for lip enhancement, and it will provide greater fullness than JUVEDERM Volbella.
JUVEDERM Ultra Plus takes JUVEDERM Ultra up a notch to treat deeper, more severe lines and wrinkles. This injectable is ideal for deep nasolabial folds, smile lines, and other wrinkles in the mid and lower regions of the face. JUVEDERM Ultra Plus works by attracting water to the area so that the tissues remain hydrated. With this treatment, Dr. Friedlander can help you look more youthful and refreshed. Results with JUVEDERM Ultra Plus are known to last up to one year.
The cheeks are one of the most conspicuous places on the face for volume loss. As we age, the tissues in the midface lose their elasticity and begin to fall toward the jawline. This creates a hollow appearance in the cheeks. JUVEDERM Voluma restores volume to the cheek area. This injectable is denser than other forms of JUVEDERM, providing smooth, natural-looking fullness and allowing you to look and feel fresh-faced and rejuvenated. JUVEDERM Voluma offers some of the longest-lasting results, with effects showing for up to two years.
