When you look in a mirror, are you noticing deeply etched nasolabial folds also known as smile lines or marionette lines? Are your lips thinning, losing fullness or developing perioral lip lines that your lipstick bleeds into? Are the corners of your mouth turning down making you look sad? Are you developing a knobby looking chin because of a deep horizontal crease below your lower lip? Are you seeing hollows under your eyes that make you look tired and haggard? The bad news is that these are all signs of an aging face. The good news is that the Allergan’s collection of JUVÉDERM® XC dermal fillers can help correct these problems.
Dermal fillers are an inexpensive non-invasive way to correct volume loss in the face. They have evolved over the years to be safe, long lasting and easy to administer. Volume loss in your face makes you look tired, gaunt and older than you are. Replacing volume loss can make a big difference in how you look and feel about yourself and how others see you.
I prefer using Allergan’s JUVÉDERM® XC collection of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. There are currently five JUVÉDERM® XC dermal fillers FDA approved for use in the U.S.
- JUVÉDERM® ULTRA XC
- JUVÉDERM® ULTRA PLUS XC
- JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
- JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
- JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC
These injectable gels are produced by linking hyaluronic acid molecules by either the Hylacross or Vycross® technology resulting in dermal fillers that create a smooth natural look and feel. They come premixed with lidocaine for a more comfortable treatment experience and can be dissolved with a simple enzyme treatment if need be. With a JUVÉDERM® XC treatment you will see an instant volume correction that may last 12 to 24 months depending on the filler used and on the area injected. When you are a Brilliant Distinctions® member, you earn points on each syringe of JUVÉDERM® XC that are redeemable for coupons to discount subsequent treatments.
The Arizona sun can be harsh and lead to premature aging of your skin. Phoenix residents who discover deep lines, hollows under their eyes and a mouth that is turning down and giving you a sad facial expression are lucky to learn that these common signs of aging can be corrected with the help of Dr Rossi at Willo MediSpa and the dermal fillers from the JUVÉDERM® product line. Dermal fillers are effective yet affordable and best of all, non invasive. Dr. Rossi works with Allergan’s JUVÉDERM® XC products which show immediate results, are safe, and last up to a year. JUVÉDERM® XC is especially effective in areas of thinner skin and little to medium volume loss. It is smooth under the skin and suitable for oral commissures, mild glabellar lines, nasolabial folds and mild marionette lines. JUVÉDERM® ULTRA PLUS XC is a more viscous gel for areas with more severe volume loss such as deep marionette lines and severe nasolabial folds, thickers skin and men’s faces.

JUVÉDERM® ULTRA XC is a good filler for areas where there is mild to moderate volume loss and thinner skin. Areas on a woman’s face that respond well to this product are thinning lips, mild nasolabial folds, oral commissures, mild glabellar lines and mild marionette lines. I describe the consistency of this product to a thick syrup. When injected, it forms a smooth layer under the skin to lift sunken or thinning areas. An optimal treatment with JUVÉDERM® ULTRA XC may last up to a year.
JUVÉDERM® ULTRA PLUS XC is a more viscous gel that is designed to fill areas with moderate to severe volume loss. It works well where more correction is needed and where the skin is thicker such as on a man’s face. Deep nasolabial folds and deep marionette lines respond well to this filler. An optimal treatment with JUVÉDERM® ULTRA PLUS XC may last a year or longer.
The injection procedure of these dermal fillers produces minimal discomfort. On areas of the face, a topical numbing cream is applied for 20 – 30 minutes. For lip augmentation injections, a dental infiltrate with 1% Lidocaine is preformed to decrease discomfort. Once started, most dermal filler treatments take 30 minutes or less.
It is best to have a treatment plan when doing a lot of volume correction with dermal fillers. Too many injections in any one session can become unbearable. I encourage patients to apply filler in stages or layers. Typically start with the area of greatest concern. Once that area is corrected, you may want to consider treating another area to give a overall consistent natural look.
