Lift your way to subtle results that last

One of the most popular treatments for addressing common age-related volume loss is Juvéderm®. Juvéderm® is easy to administer, provides natural-looking and long-lasting results, and it does not require any surgery.
The best results come from trained and experienced medical professionals. At Skin Care Fort Worth, Dr. Peter Damico makes a point of administering the injections himself. His eye for detail and in-depth knowledge of anatomy give him an advantage when working with patients seeking solutions for their cosmetic needs.

What is Juvederm Ultra XC®?

Juvéderm® is one of many modern cosmetic treatments known as dermal fillers. These injectables physically fill out areas of the face that have lost vital components in the skin. This loss can lead to a reduction in volume, causing formerly youthful facial features to sag and develop lines.
One key natural compound found in Juvederm that provides volume for healthy skin is hyaluronic acid. This carbohydrate can hold 1,000 times its own weight in water, making it an excellent volumizer. As we age, hyaluronic acid begins to diminish in the skin, as a result of dwindling production and UV damage. As skin dries out, it folds into wrinkles and sinks into hollows.
Juvéderm® is a carefully modified form of hyaluronic acid designed to be a safe and effective replacement for what is lost to time and sunlight. It is also a wonderful option for patients seeking beautiful, natural-looking full lips.
There are several varieties of Juvéderm®, including Juvéderm® XC, Ultra XC, Voluma, Volbella, and Vollure. Each one has been developed to target a specific treatment area, such as smoothing wrinkles near the mouth and nose, plumping up lips, and restoring volume to the chin, temples, and apples of the cheeks. The Juvéderm products this page refers to are XC and Ultra XC.

What does Juvederm Ultra XC® treat?

While Juvéderm® Ultra XC can be used to address a variety of aesthetic concerns, it is most frequently injected to reduce the appearance of wrinkles that appear around the nose and mouth. It is also our most popular filler of choice for people seeking to add volume to their lips. The U.S. FDA has approved Juvéderm® for treating:
  • Smile lines, sometimes referred to as “parenthesis” for the way they frame your mouth
  • Corner lines that extend from the edges of your mouth
  • Marionette lines, which run downward from the sides of your mouth
  • Vertical lip lines, which spread toward your nose from your upper lip
  • Lip augmentation, commonly known as giving your lips natural-looking volume with the use of filler

What can I expect from a Juvederm® session at Skin Care Fort Worth?

Juvéderm® is a smooth gel, which allows for a quick treatment process. After a consultation and the careful selection of injection sites for maximum youthful results, the actual treatment session may last as little as 15 minutes. However, your full appointment time will be longer to allow time for numbing treatments to take effect and to address any concerns you may have.
Dr. Damico uses a cannula as opposed to a traditional needle to reduce trauma at the injection site. The rounded tip allows for a gentler approach and helps to prevent the sort of bruising and other side effects associated with needles.
Juvéderm® also contains a small amount of the anesthetic lidocaine, which helps to reduce sensation at the injection site, increasing a patient’s comfort during the treatment session.

How long does Juvederm® last?  

Results are instantly visible, and can last up to a year under ideal conditions. Patients may want to return for touch-up treatments after their initial injection. Follow-up sessions involve less of the product and can extend the length of your results.

How much does Juvederm Ultra XC® cost at Skin Care Fort Worth?  

Each syringe of Juvederm Ultra XC® is $600 at Skin Care Fort Worth. The number of syringes necessary to achieve the results you are looking for may only be determined by scheduling a consultation to speak with our knowledgeable medical staff. In order to achieve natural-looking results, Dr. Damico feels strongly about never putting more than 1 syringe in anyone’s lips per treatment session. However, if you decide that less than one syringe will achieve desirable results in one area, ”left-over” filler creates an exciting opportunity to treat other areas of the face, such as smile lines/naso-labial folds!

Are there any side effects?  

Patients who experience side effects tend to see conditions common to injection sites: temporary redness, swelling, tenderness, itching, and possible bruising. Any of these, if present after a treatment session, should resolve in the span of a week.

Dr. Damico can discuss all of the Juvéderm®-related safety considerations at the time of your consultation and/or appointment, as well as answer specific questions you may have and discuss with you what to expect during your session. Please visit the official Juvederm site if you wish to learn more about safety information.

Beyond Juvederm Ultra XC®

As mentioned above, there are several fillers in the Juvéderm® family, including Voluma, Volbella, and Vollure. Each one has been developed to target a specific treatment area, such as restoring your temples and cheeks, smoothing wrinkles near your mouth and nose, giving structure and volume to your lips, and restoring your profile by placing volume in the chin. Of course, Botox is also a great way to eliminate wrinkles and when used together with dermal fillers, it can give you a natural looking, balanced, and youthful appearance.
