Juvederm / Voluma Jupiter, FL
Juvederm is an injectable gel that’s designed to rejuvenate your appearance by smoothing wrinkles, sculpting enhanced facial features and restoring youthful volume that’s been lost due to the natural aging process.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a collection of fillers that can provide volume, plump the lips, define the features, smooth wrinkles, and also be part of a non-surgical facelift or rhinoplasty. The Juvederm collection includes a number of different fillers that can each be used to achieve different aesthetic goals, from Volbella XC for the lips to Vollure XC for softening and smoothing deeper wrinkles, to Voluma XC that restores lost volume.
Juvederm is an HA-based filler, meaning that it is based on hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the body that hydrates and plumps, creating supple, luminous skin.
How does Juvederm work?
Juvederm works by leveraging hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance that helps to hydrate the skin and create a supple complexion. Your body loses its ability to produce hyaluronic acid as you age, which is what causes wrinkles, hollow areas and sunken features to emerge. Juvederm temporarily restores your body’s depleted supply of this critical substance, so that you can rediscover your youthful facial appearance.
What can Juvederm Accomplish?
When administered correctly, our West Palm Beach Juvederm has the ability to completely transform your facial appearance by:
- Minimizing the appearance of forehead creases
- Smoothing wrinkles around the mouth
- Sculpting full and natural-looking lips
- Restoring lost volume in the cheeks

Who is a Good Candidate for Juvederm?
Patients who would like to sculpt or enhance their features, achieve a supple, plump pout, and/or rejuvenate their appearance by softening wrinkles and restoring lost volume are likely candidates for Juvederm. Ideal candidates should meet the following requirements:
- Are generally healthy
- Are not pregnant or nursing
- Have no skin infections or other breakouts in the desired treatment area
- Are not allergic to any of the ingredients in Juvederm
Is Juvederm a Safe Treatment?
Juvederm products are engineered with naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, a compound found in youthful complexions. Because HA is native to human skin, there is little to no risk of an allergic reaction after Juvederm injections. If the patient is unhappy with their filler, the treatment can be reversed. With any dermal filler injections, it’s important to choose a knowledgeable, experienced, credentialed provider with an eye for balance, precision, and detail. We perform filler injections conservatively to maximize your safety and produce a final result that is organic-looking, personalized, and elegant.
What to Expect During your Juvederm Treatments
In performing your West Palm Beach Juvederm treatments, our goal is to produce the most natural results possible. As such, our advanced registered nurse practitioner, Kristy Levin, will begin your appointment by carefully assessing the lines, wrinkles and aging areas you’d like addressed. She will then evaluate your facial anatomy as a whole and compose a customized plan designed to enhance your facial appearance using a subtle yet effective approach.
To perform your actual injections, Kristy will place the filler in strategic areas throughout your face, with the intention of smoothing wrinkles, enhancing your features and restoring lost volume. Throughout this process, she will take special care to ensure that your outcome is completely natural – never overdone. Once the filler is in place, she will massage the area to ensure smooth results.
After your Juvederm injections, there is virtually no recovery period. In terms of side effects, redness, swelling, pain, bumps and firmness may appear, but should subside within approximately one week. In the meantime, you can minimize the swelling with cold compresses and take over the counter pain medication to manage any discomfort.
Though every patient will have a unique experience, most of our clients in West Palm Beach, Jupiter, FL, and the surrounding areas notice an immediate improvement in their appearance right after their Juvederm injections. Juvederm is absorbed very slowly and you will enjoy your enhanced appearance for up to nine months. At that point, you will need to return to our Palm Beach Gardens office for repeat injections to preserve your youthful new look.
