Juvéderm is a dermal filler that adds volume to the skin and smooths away away wrinkles and fine lines. As the skin ages, it loses its elasticity. Juvéderm adheres to the contours of the skin, providing fullness where it may be lacking. When the treatment areas are properly volumized, unsightly creases are essentially “ironed out” from within.

The most abundant protein in the human body is collagen. There are four major types of collagen. One type enmeshes cartilage and cushions your joints. Another form of collagen gives muscles, organs and arteries their shape. A third variation helps filter waste material. But the most prevalent of all collagen types is the connective tissue that gives skin its structure and support.
In fact, the word collagen is derived from the Greek “kólla,” which translates into English as “glue.” When the glue keeping your skin perky and uplifted dries up, your skin may sag. Juvéderm props up the skin for several months – or even a year or more in some cases. The reason why Juvéderm lasts so long is that it triggers increased production of collagen. Hence, the body is inspired to replenish its own youthfulness naturally and enduringly.
The main active ingredient of Juvéderm is hyaluronic acid (HA), also called hyaluronan. HA is a gel that is smooth in consistency. This acid naturally occurs in the skin and provides hydration and volume. Dermal fillers are considered one of the most effective non-surgical cosmetic treatments available, and the Juvéderm family of fillers are some of the most popular.
The different formulations of Juvéderm speak to the variability of the product line as a whole. Lips, for example, require a solution with a silky, dissolvable texture. The nasolabial folds (laugh lines), however, demand a more viscous brand of Juvéderm. To discuss which type of dermal filler is best for your cosmetic goals, please contact Scottsdale Plastics.
Juvéderm Voluma XC
The midface region is often where your appearance gets its character. Onlookers notice your cheeks due to their pronounced position and round, pleasant contours. But when the cheeks become deflated due to age, the entire midface area sags along with them. Juvéderm Voluma XC is specially designed to add volume to mature cheeks. Your expression can once again reflect the vigor in your soul rather than the years and their toll.
The “XC” in all of Juvéderm’s product names indicates the presence of lidocaine. Lidocaine helps minimize discomfort throughout the dermal filler process. You will not need an anesthetic to tolerate the ultrafine needles that deliver Juvéderm Voluma XC safely beneath the cheek muscles.

Benefits of Dermal Fillers
Juvéderm will provide 9 to 12 months of corrections to moderate to severe facial wrinkles or folds. When compared with other collagen-based fillers, studies have shown that Juvéderm produces superior results.
In addition to the obvious physical benefits of a smart dermal filler strategy, recipients will enjoy a boost in confidence as well. Knowing that your skin is living its best life helps you shed your insecurities and show off your natural attractiveness.
Another wonderful feature of hyaluronic acid is its ability to cradle moisture on a cellular level. Your skin will stay hydrated thanks to Juvéderm’s chemical composition and its tendency to bind to water molecules.
- Formulated with hyaluronic acid, which occurs organically in the human body
- Applicable to a variety of facial lines, empowering you to direct your own destiny
- Long-lasting yet minimally invasive
- Promotes hydration, giving skin a healthy glow
If you have experienced volume loss, lines and wrinkles, or sagging skin due to age, then a Juvederm filler may be a great choice for you. Ideal candidates are healthy individuals with realistic expectations. Non-smokers tend to benefit from dermal filler treatment more than smokers due to the fact that tobacco products accelerate the aging process.
Please contact our office and Dr. Bonillas can assess your eligibility for Juvéderm injections.

Let’s talk, shall we? You deserve some face time with a true expert, so book a visit with Dr. Bonillas.

After all, communication is the foundation of all great achievements.
In an effort to provide world-class communication to our Arizona community, we regularly update our Beauty Talk blog. It is packed with insights and information to keep you looking and feeling your best. Great talk!
During your consultation, you will receive detailed instructions to prepare you for Juvéderm treatments. The process is so straightforward, you may be deemed ready for your first session immediately following your consultation.
The Juvéderm Procedure
Dr. Bonillas will assess the areas of your face you would like to regain volume. Once he has cleansed the skin, the doctor will gently ease the Juvéderm gel to its proper placement beneath the surface. The injectable solution will instantly smooth away folds and wrinkles, as well as restore volume to the skin.
Immediately after your Juvéderm treatment, you may notice small red dots at the injections site(s). These will gradually disappear as your skin adapts to the dermal filler gel. Your Scottsdale Plastics representative may gently massage the target area to facilitate the diffusion of Juvéderm, but please do not rub the skin yourself. We are medical professionals and we want what is best for you; great results can’t be rushed!
The human body naturally absorbs hyaluronic acid after 9-12 months. To extend the benefits of your Juvéderm treatment, simply make an appointment with Scottsdale Plastics and renew the ravishing rewards of this magnificent dermal filler.
One of the great things about dermal fillers is the results are immediate. Juvéderm creates a natural look and feel, restoring your smooth skin. You will achieve a youthful luster for months to come.
The dermal filler begins to plump your skin and smooth your wrinkles as soon as Dr. Bonillas injects it. Within seconds, you and the doctor can determine if you want more volume or if the amount injected is enough. While you may encounter some initial swelling and bruising, this will heal quickly. Using supplements such as arnica can help recover from the bruising more quickly.
If you opt for Juvéderm in the lips, it may take up to two weeks to see your final results. Moderate swelling may persist for a few days. Try not to worry if your lips seem bigger than you had originally wanted for the first week or two; it’s likely just routine swelling.

Juvéderm is fantastic when it comes to filling the gaps beneath the surface of the skin. Deflation is one of the main causes of facial wrinkles, but it is not the only one. Persistent muscular contractions pull at the skin. Every time you wink, smile, and laugh, your face contorts, etching fine lines into your appearance. Botox Cosmetic eases muscular contractions, allowing your serene smoothness to shine through.
When ptosis (sagging) along the face is more pronounced, you may be struggling with excess skin. Dr. Bonillas can perform a facelift procedure to remove redundant folds and accentuate your natural contours. To learn more about facial rejuvenation, call (480) 245-6830 to connect with one of our attentive, knowledgeable staff members.
