Juvederm – now a family of fillers
10 years ago we had one Juvederm product. Today we have Five! Although this may be a bit confusing to the consumer, it offers you and your Doctor the ability to chose the right product depending on the results that you desire. Every face is different, and every person has their own reasons for wanting to try filler product.
Dr. Abbott’s concierge model of care means that he will actively listen to your goals, and then provide with with your options, including what you can expect from the treatment, how long the benefit will last, and how much your treatment will cost. He will be sure to offer you the best pricing that he can offer, while assuring you receive the correct treatment and the best possible outcome. Don’t worry about deciding which filler is best for you – he is there to help you make that important decision.
All of the Juvederm family of fillers contain Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a substance that your body readily accepts as normal, since it naturally occurs in skin. Levels of Hyaluronic acid in your skin drop over time and this is one contributing factor in the development of wrinkles and creases on the face and smaller lip size. Juvederm products are all clear gels, injected using small needles, and placed with care and attention to detail by Dr. Carter Abbott. Juvederm products are the #1 fillers in the world, and are the fillers chosen by Dr. Abbott to use in his aesthetic practice. Furthermore, he performs all of the treatments.
With multiple Juvederm products to choose from, we need to refer to them by their full names:
Juvederm Ultra XC (the original Juvederm) – perfect for the parentheses wrinkles that occur with smiling, the nasolabial folds (from the side the the nose to the lower/mid cheek area, frown lines that persist after botox treatment, and also for moderate lip augmentation (plumping of volume)
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC – with a slightly higher concentration of HA, can be safely used in all of the same areas that Juvederm Ultra is used in, but is a slightly fuller gel, that lasts longer
Juvederm Voluma XC – made available to the US public in 2013, Voluma is the first filler produced using Vycross technology, creating a filler that is ideally suited to restore volume in the upper cheeks while also providing a subtle lift of the jowls and naso-labial folds. This was a revolutionary product that truly provides non-surgical lifting. Voluma XC can be used in other areas, and the Doctor will discuss those options with you at your visit.
Juvederm Volbella XC – became available to US patients and Doctors in the fall of 2016. Volbella has a long track record, having been used in Europe since 2011 and more than 70 countries before it became available in the US. Volbella uses Vycross technology combined with a lower HA concentration to create a unique filler for natural lip enhancements that shape and refine lips and lip lines, and lasts up to one year. Dr. Abbott was one of the first offices to offer Vobella and he has found it to be useful for mature lips, smoker’s lines (vertical lines and wrinkles around the mouth) and lines from sun-damaged skin around the eyes and cheeks.
Juvederm Vollure XC – is the latest addition to the Juvederm family of Hyaluronic Acid fillers. Since April 2017 Dr Abbott has been using this product, which offers a combination of adding volume to creases and fold, and lasting 18 months in approximately 55% of patients.
Dr. Abbott asks you to take a few minutes, watch the following video, and you will gain a better understanding of how these different fillers can be used.
“I had very deep smile lines. It is all that I noticed when looking in the mirror. Dr. Abbott discussed my options and the procedures in depth so that I knew exactly what to expect. He was also very thorough in answering my multitude of questions. I opted for filler for the frown lines and a little Botox on the forehead between my eyes. The results were filler were immediate and I was amazed at the smoothing of all of these lines. I am very excited and plan to keep it up in the future.”
|Before and After|

The Juvederm family of fillers are used to soften deeper lines and creases on the face, as well as lift and add more volume. Juvederm products may be used in many locations, such as smile lines, frown lines, nasal folds, cheeks, lips, lip lines, chin, tear troughs, temporal fossa, hands and ear lobes. Juvederm products offer excellent results and will last anywhere from 6-15 months depending on the Juvederm filler that is selected, how it is placed, where it is placed, and how quickly your body breaks it down.
You don’t need to worry about which Juvederm filler is right for you – Dr. Abbott will help you decide.
On the day of treatment, you will see volume right away, along with some swelling, and possibly some bruising. Allergic reactions to Juvederm fillers are extremely uncommon. Infections are also uncommon, but can occur with any injection. Any side effects that may occur from filler treatment will be safely managed by Dr. Abbott.
The safety of Juvederm is enhanced due to the availability of an “eraser” – a way to dissolve the filler if it is causing an problem or unwanted side effect. This eraser is called hyaluronidase, and Dr. Abbott always has it on hand to manage problems that rarely develop on the day of injection, or even used weeks to months later if dissolving filler is needed or requested by the patient. If your aesthetic Doctors office does not stock hyaluronidase for emergency use, then you should be seeing treatment elsewhere.
“I recently had Botox and Juvederm injections at Omaha Med Spa and am very pleased with the results. I felt Dr. Abbott and the staff were very professional and friendly. Dr. Abbott listened to my concerns about my appearance and what changes I could expect to see from treatment. He was very honest about what the outcomes would be and did not try to push me into doing more than I wanted. I have some deep lines around my mouth, frown lines (elevens), and crow’s feet. I can really tell a difference in my appearance. I definitely look more youthful. The lines around my mouth are much softer and the “elevens” are much less pronounced. Dr. Abbott also recommended products for my skin which were less costly than products I have been using and turned out to be more effective. I also felt Omaha Med Spa was very clean and sanitary which is very important to me. The reception area and patient rooms were immaculate. I highly recommend Omaha Med Spa and its staff and intend to return for further procedures.”

Dr. Abbott is known for his experience and skill in providing lip augmentation. Whether you want maximal volume, such as the picture above, or a subtle enhancement – he will deliver the best injection experience, and the best possible result.
Bruising may be apparent on the day of treatment, or develop several days later. It will go away, but may take up to two weeks or more to completely disappear. The risk of bruising varies greatly between individuals, and can be minimized by stopping over the counter “blood thinners” a week prior to the service (such as Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, Naproxen, ASA, Bayer Aspirin, Fish Oil, Omega 3 Fatty Acids and Vitamin E). if you are unsure if it is safe to stop any blood thinning medication, check with your doctor first. Tylenol does not increase the risk of bruising, and may be used during the week before treatment. Dr. Abbott can treat you if you are unable to discontinue the use of blood thinners, due to a medical condition.
Dr. Abbott is also highly skilled in the use of cannulas, which are ideal for treatment of the under eye area to improve the appearance of bags under the eyes (tear troughs), the cheeks and the temporal fossa. Blunt tip cannulas are very comfortable for the patient, and lead to almost no bruising or swelling!
First a word about pricing. When you are shopping and searching the internet for where you will go for filler treatment, remember you should not shop on price alone. When you pay for filler treatment you are covering the cost that the doctor has to pay for the product, but most importantly you are also paying for the skill, experience, expertise, reputation and safety record of the doctor who is placing the product. Dr. Abbott will strive to offer you fair pricing, and the deliver the best possible filler results.
