Juvéderm comes in different variations that are all designed to rejuvenate the facial skin and create a more youthful look for our New York, NY patients. Dr. Lawrence Bass, our board-certified plastic surgeon, uses each filler to address creases or thinning in and around the lips, wrinkles around the nasolabial folds, and lack of volume in the cheeks. The hyaluronic acid base in each FDA-cleared Juvéderm injectable allows the treatment to fill out hollow or sinking areas of the skin, and add hydration and an overall youthful glow back into the face. To learn more about which injectable could be right for you, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Bass at his Great Neck or Manhattan Bass Plastic Surgery office. Juvéderm can help correct a wide variety of facial concerns without the invasiveness of surgery.
The best candidates for Juvéderm:
- Have moderate to deep lines between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds)
- Have thin lips and desire plumper lips
- Have age-related volume loss in cheeks
- Desire long-term results
- Desire natural-looking results
Dr. Bass specializes in providing his patients with as many nonsurgical anti-aging options as possible. He is proud to offer the following noninvasive treatments by way of Juvéderm:
Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC: Works to both smooth out wrinkles and folds in the skin as well as add volume to the facial tissues. Dr. Bass will inject this around the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and other creases as needed.
Juvéderm Volbella XC: Used to add volume to and augment the lips nonsurgically. Injections of Volbella can also smooth out the wrinkles around the mouth. Dr. Bass frequently uses it for nonsurgical lip augmentation.
Juvéderm Vollure: Injected into the facial skin by Dr. Bass to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles around areas such as the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and other spots with moderate lines or folds.
Juvéderm Voluma: Dr. Bass injects Voluma into the cheeks in order to add volume and a sharper contour to deflated or thinning skin. This injection can be an effective alternative to surgical cheek augmentation.

"Dr. Bass is absolutely amazing. I have been a patient of his for about 15 years. My surgeries include a facelift and breast implants. No one can tell I had either done. I look beautiful and natural. He continues to treat my skin with Botox and fillers. I trust him. He is very caring, attentive, and addresses all my concerns."- Anonymous / Vitals / Nov 21, 2016
What to Expect
Beforehand, our plastic surgeon will determine the appropriate formula, injection site(s), and the correct dosage to begin this in-office treatment. Since Juvéderm already has a numbing agent (lidocaine) included, additional numbing usually isn’t needed. The filler will be delivered through a fine needle to the lips, cheeks, and/or wrinkles and lines around the nose and mouth. Patients will feel a small prick and a tingling sensation from the injection. The treatment typically lasts 30 – 45 minutes.
After the injectable, there might be slight redness in the treated area. There could also be mild swelling, but it should go away rather quickly. Since there’s no downtime associated with Juvéderm, patients can return to their normal activities right away. The face should be dramatically improved right after the treatment, and most patients can expect reliable results for up to 1 year.
Reduced Lines and Wrinkles
Juvéderm has not only become one of the most popular and trusted fillers on the market, it is also one of the most effective at diminishing tough lines and wrinkles. In addition, it can add needed volume to thin lips and deflated cheeks. To learn more about this safe and successful treatment, contact Bass Plastic Surgery in New York, NY for a consultation.
