Over time, it is natural to lose volume in the face, which will create wrinkles, creases, and hollows. The team at Louisiana Women’s Aesthetics in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, offers Juvederm® to bring volume back to the areas where it has been lost, restoring a more youthful, refreshed appearance. Juvederm targets and improves the appearance of facial wrinkles, fine lines around the mouth, and has a wonderful effect of giving the lips a slightly fuller and polished look.

Juvederm is an FDA-approved line of dermal fillers, considered the gold standard for plumping and lifting the skin to gently and naturally treat volume loss caused by your body’s natural aging process. It can also be used to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and scars.
At Louisiana Women’s Aesthetics, we use Juvederm to restore facial contours and improve signs of aging:
Age-related volume loss can cause cheeks to flatten and skin to sag. Juvederm helps add volume for lifting and contouring the cheek area.
Juvederm smooths and softens the appearance of smoker’s lines and plumps up marionette lines (the lines that go from the corners of your mouth down to your chin).
There is nothing more desirable than youthful, full, and sexy lips. Juvederm is used to add volume to lips as well as correct lip asymmetry and the thinning of the lips and perioral lines seen with the aging process.
Juvederm injections may cause some discomfort during and after the injection. At Louisiana Women’s Aesthetics, we provide a numbing agent prior to treatment to minimize discomfort.
After injection, patients may experience some mild swelling (sometimes moderate) and there is always the risk of bruising. We will offer you an ice pack following your treatment.
We recommend at least two days of downtime after injection. This would involve avoiding strenuous activity, such as exercise and activities that confine the head and body like massages, as these can induce swelling.
Note that after injection, the filler may be felt under the skin and in the week following. This is part of the process as the filler “settles.”
Most filler has settled at two weeks, as well as the resolution of any outward signs such as swelling or bruising. Any bruising can be concealed with makeup the day following treatment.
The longevity of filler depends on the specific type used. Voluma™ XC, used for the cheeks, can last up to two years. Vollure™ XC for lines around the mouth and in the lips can last up to 18 months. Volbella™ XC and Ultra PLUS XC, used for lips and around the mouth, can last up to 12 months.
Juvederm is a very effective treatment for women and men of all ages who want to improve their overall appearance, augment their lips, reduce wrinkles, and slow the effects of aging.
