For improvement of deep facial wrinkles, folds, lines, acne scars, enhanced lips & to contour other facial features such as the chin & cheeks –JUVÉDERM® is a “smooth” injectable gel filler…
Aging, and other universal elements, cause our skin components to break down and lose natural volume and structure. As this occurs, lines, facial folds and wrinkles become visible. Dr. White recommends JUVÉDERM® to patients who want to restore that structure and volume – and instantly remove several years of facial aging.
JUVÉDERM® is made from a substance that occurs naturally in all human bodies – hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is highly attracted to water and has the ability to bind to it. As we age, hyaluronic acid is depleted, the skin loses volume and lines, wrinkles and folds are formed. JUVÉDERM® is one of today’s most popular in-office, “lunch-hour” treatments.
Dr. White is skilled in facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries & procedures of every kind. He uses today’s most advanced – but reliable – techniques, and as a specially trained surgeon – his skill and experience achieve natural looking results – using the right treatment plan - for your specific needs.

A Good Candidate:
Any man or woman who is unhappy with what they see when looking into the mirror and who desires to correct the problems listed above, could be an ideal candidate for JUVÉDERM® Injectable treatments. Being in overall good health and having realistic expectations is required. Dr. White will assess your condition and concerns, during your initial consultation, and then create a personalized treatment plan for you. Often, patients choose to combine other age-erasing facial procedures – such as Mini-FaceLift or a NeckLift to achieve the most satisfying – balanced results.
Dr. White believes the first consult is critical to both you and him. It is during this time that you both achieve a mutual understanding, trust and respect. The information you provide is essential to tailoring the right treatment plan and realistic goals. Dr. White will listen carefully and sensitively before developing your personalized surgery/treatment plan.
JUVÉDERM® offers two formulations to allow you a “personalized” treatment plan. A very tiny needle is used to inject a pre-measured dose into specific, pre-targeted areas. Using either JUVÉDERM® ™ Ultra – or JUVÉDERM® ™ Ultra Plus, depending upon your needs, the smooth gel is injected into the specified sites. It flows easily and consistently into the skin so that little to no discomfort is experienced. It ensures a smooth, natural look and feel. Some redness, firmness and swelling is normal and to be expected for up to 7 days.
ABOUT JUVÉDERM® ULTRA AND ULTRA PLUS FORMULATIONS:
JUVÉDERM®™ Ultra and Ultra Plus injectable gels are the newest, most advanced form of hyaluronic acid dermal filler on the market today. Because JUVÉDERM® Ultra is a highly cross-linked gel – it is smooth, consistently flowing and longer lasting. All other dermal fillers are granular which makes a “smooth” flow impossible. JUVÉDERM® accomplished this using a most advanced scientific method. JUVÉDERM® is the most versatile dermal injectable filler available today.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

What Facial Areas Are Typically Treated With JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM®™ Ultra and Ultra Plus is a “next generation” hyaluronic acid – smooth gel dermal filler. It is different from others on the market because it is a “smooth gel” that flows consistently into the skin, causing wrinkles and folds to easily “smooth away” with the restored volume to the skin. The Ultra Plus formula is more robust and allows for more versatility in treating deeper wrinkles and folds.
JUVÉDERM® is used to correct areas of the face and jaw line that need to be rejuvenated.
What Makes JUVÉDERM® Suitable For Persons Of Color?
JUVÉDERM® is FDA approved as safe and effective treatment for persons of color and those with different skin tones because there is no risk of hyper-pigmentation and hyper-trophic scarring.
JUVÉDERM® Is Different From BOTOX® Cosmetic – How?
BOTOX® is a muscle relaxant that is generally used in the upper facial area to relax the parallel line area between the eyes.
Explain Hyaluronic Acid and Cross-Linking.
Hyaluronic Acid is substance which occurs naturally in all mammals and helps to keep the skin hydrated. With aging hyaluronic acid production slows down and lines, wrinkles and folds appear. Cross-linking is a unique manufacturing process. It is what makes JUVÉDERM® effective and longer lasting.
Are JUVÉDERM® Injections Painful?
Because JUVÉDERM® is a smooth gel - it flows easily and consistently into the skin. This causes little to no discomfort like other dermal fillers because they are granular.
How Long Does A JUVÉDERM® Treatment Take?
A treatment generally takes 15 minutes or longer.
Will Insurance Cover JUVÉDERM® Treatments?
NO. Insurance does not pay for cosmetic procedures. But financing is available. Please ask about it in our business office.
