With one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the body, Juvéderm is a highly effective dermal filler. Seattle area plastic surgeon, Dr. Marosan, prefers to use the filler to not only treat lines and wrinkles but as a lip enhancer as well. The filler works by stimulating collagen and elastin, which play pivotal roles in skin elasticity to aid in filling out hollow areas and adding needed contouring. Ultra Plus XC is used to treat moderate to severe lines around the nose and mouth, known as nasolabial folds and Ultra XC is used for lip enhancement.
Dr. Marosan enjoys the outstanding and long-lasting results he can achieve with Juvéderm, where patients can enjoy benefits from 6 to 12 months. In some cases, Juvéderm's effects have been known to last well past a year.

What to Expect
Juvéderm is a gel substance that is administered via a fine needle directly into the skin. There is no sedation needed, although a numbing cream is usually applied first to help with any discomfort. The injection sites will be sterilized and marked with ink. Once the filler is injected, results are immediately noticeable. The practitioner may massage the treated area so the filler spreads evenly. Other than temporary redness, the treatment has no after effect that will prevent a patient from going back to normal routine. Patients should avoid strenuous exercise for approximately 24 hours. After a Juvéderm injection, the face will look refreshed, softer and smoother.
This procedure is almost pain-free. This really is determined on a patient’s overall pain tolerance. The product is administered with a fine injection needle and a numbing cream is usually applied first to help with any discomfort. After the treatment, tingling sensations may occur, and there could be some swelling and bruising. These after effects are temporary and usually subside within a few hours.
Dermal fillers have an outstanding track record for successfully reducing signs of aging with less risk than surgical cosmetic treatments. Other nonsurgical options include wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX® and Dysport®. Severe cosmetic issues such as loose and sagging skin may be better resolved by a surgical facelift. The approach taken will be based on the patient’s cosmetic condition and aesthetic goals.
Back to 20?
It is important to set realistic expectations when undergoing any cosmetic enhancement procedure. While the treatment does take years off the face, it can only do so much for patients who have severe wrinkles and skin irregularities. Juvéderm will definitely help decrease fine wrinkles and creases, and the skin will appear smoother and softer.
