Aging has its perks, but most of us don’t see wrinkles as one of them. Every year that passes brings new changes to your face — including the lines, volume loss and sagging skin that can make you seem older and less vibrant than you feel.

Dermal fillers work with your body’s natural chemistry to enhance volume and minimize wrinkles without incisions or anesthesia. The Juvéderm® collection of hyaluronic acid fillers is among our most versatile and popular nonsurgical procedures. Our licensed injectors expertly administer Juvéderm® under the skin to provide a smooth, natural look and feel. To learn more about this minimally-invasive treatment, we invite you to visit Skin Artisans at Edina Plastic Surgery.


There are many types of FDA-approved dermal fillers that can be used to achieve your goals. Juvéderm® is a hyaluronic acid filler — the most popular style of filler used today. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance that already exists in your skin, helping it stay hydrated, plump and elastic. Juvéderm® takes the form of a soft gel that restores lost volume, fills out lines or enhances facial contours by creating an internal support system for your skin. Juvéderm® treatments also promote hydration and collagen production, which further enhance your skin’s strength and suppleness.

Juvéderm® is one of many injectables available at Skin Artisans. Your injector will review each of these options with you during your consultation to ensure you receive the right one for your needs.


Juvéderm® fillers are a wonderful option for patients with early signs of aging who aren’t ready for surgery, as well as patients who want to enhance the results of a surgical procedure. Younger patients can also enjoy the benefits of fillers if they wish to highlight, define or reshape their features. For example, Juvéderm® lip enhancement has become very popular for those seeking fuller, softer lips.

Juvéderm® is safe for individuals of many ages and skin types. You are most likely a candidate for this treatment provided you have reasonable expectations and are not pregnant, nursing or allergic to any Juvéderm® ingredients.


Juvéderm® products are remarkably versatile and can accomplish beautiful results in a number of areas, including the following:

  • Temples: To restore hollowness of temples and elevate brows
  • Around the Eyes: For crow’s feet wrinkles and/or tear troughs
  • Mid-face: Injections in cheeks to help lift and restore the foundation of the face

The Juvéderm® family of dermal fillers contains multiple products with a variety of intended uses. Each Juvéderm® filler possesses a different density, texture, optimal injection depth and longevity, allowing Skin Artisan technicians to tailor treatments to each patient’s specific needs and goals.


Juvéderm® is a clear, colorless gel made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural sugar complex found in our skin and joint tissue. Since it is natural, no allergy testing is required before treatment. It acts like a sponge when injected and binds your own body’s water to enhance the plumping effect. Juvéderm® Ultra and Ultra+ are used to fill areas such as the nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines (outer edges of lips and down to jaw), oral commissures (sides of the mouth), jawline, nose, cheeks and even earlobes.

These products are also used to lift the eyebrows, fill in hollow areas under the eyes (tear troughs), fill in lip lines or create a natural, fuller lip. Juvéderm® corrects the appearance of deeper facial wrinkles and folds to provide a more youthful, refreshed appearance with immediate results.


Juvéderm® Voluma® XC is a gel filler that is predominately used to add volume and contour the cheeks and chin area. The unique formulation of Juvéderm® Voluma® XC provides extra lift capacity, making it ideal for deep injections to address age-related volume loss in the mid-face. Juvéderm® Voluma® XC is made from a modified form of hyaluronic acid and is the result of an advanced manufacturing process that makes a smooth gel that flows easily and consistently.

The filler can be injected into the cheek area and is designed to gently lift the skin. It also contains lidocaine, which helps numb the treatment area during the injection procedure. Juvéderm® Voluma™ XC lasts longer than other fillers. Voluma® is also used to add projection and contour to the chin area to restore a more ideal balance to the overall face and to improve your profile.


Juvederm® Volux® XC is the first and only FDA-approved HA filler for improving lost definition in the jawline—with lasting results. It adds volume to improve the shape and structure of the lower face and achieve a smooth, more defined look in the jawline with results that last up to 1 year with optimal treatment.


Juvéderm® Volbella™ XC is a hyaluronic acid filler that adds subtle volume to the lips and smoothes the appearance of vertical lip lines. To make Volbella, Allergan uses a patented technology called Vycross that blends different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid together. This creates a softer, smoother and more malleable gel that is easier to inject and creates a more natural result. These characteristics make Juvéderm® Volbella an exceptional product for treating fine lines and delicate areas like the lips.

Vycross technology also makes Juvéderm® Volbella™ XC last longer than other lip fillers. Fillers tend to fade faster in highly mobile areas of the face. With Juvéderm® Volbella™ XC, you can feel confident your improvements will last through more smiles, meals and conversations.


Juvéderm® Vollure™ XC is used to soften moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles by adding volume to those areas around your nose and mouth. Like Volbella and Voluma, Vollure is part of the Vycross line. This unique manufacturing process gives Juvéderm® Vollure™ XC a consistency that adds soft, subtle volume and allows for natural facial movements. It also lessens post-treatment swelling and increases the longevity of the filler.

Juvéderm® Vollure™ XC produces subtle and long-lasting results. One treatment session can yield 18 months of wrinkle correction, a year longer than many other hyaluronic acid fillers can achieve.


SKINVIVE™ by Juvéderm® is unlike any other treatment available today. It is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) microdroplet injectable in the US to improve skin smoothness of the cheeks. This product increases hydration to improve skin smoothness and provide a lasting glow for up to 6 months with optimal treatment.



Before your Juvéderm® procedure, you will have a consultation with one of our licensed injectors. Your Skin Artisans professional will start by discussing your concerns and examining your skin to make sure you are a good candidate for dermal fillers. This assessment will determine which type of Juvéderm® is best suited to your goals and where the injections should be placed.

Once you’re ready, your technician will inject the product into the targeted area with a fine needle. Skin Artisans technicians assure minimal discomfort during any dermal filler procedure by applying a topical anesthetic cream to the treatment site prior to injecting. In addition, all Juvéderm® fillers have lidocaine in them, further ensuring your comfort.


One of the many reasons our Minneapolis-area patients love Juvéderm® fillers is that they require little, if any, downtime or recovery. Some patients experience mild redness, bruising, swelling or tenderness around the injection sites, but these effects are temporary and typically subside quickly. You should be able to return to your regular schedule right after your Juvéderm® treatment, although you may be advised to take the rest of the day off from strenuous activities. If you have a special event coming up, we recommend scheduling a filler treatment at least two weeks beforehand. Also, avoid dental cleanings ot procedures for 2 weeks after treatment.


With Juvéderm®, you can see your results right away. The plumping effect of the filler is visible as soon as the injections are done, so you can enjoy a more refreshed, beautiful and youthful you from the moment you leave our office. How long your results last depends on several factors, including the location of the injections, the type of Juvéderm® used and how quickly your body metabolizes the product. Generally speaking, Juvéderm® fillers can last anywhere from a few months to a couple of years.

Scheduling regular appointments at Skin Artisans will ensure your rejuvenated appearance lasts indefinitely.



When you visit Skin Artisans at Edina Plastic Surgery, your procedure will be performed with both skill and artistry.
