Refresh your look and your confidence with the best in dermal filler treatments.
Juvéderm® is an injectable treatment designed to fill in wrinkles and folds by restoring volume under the skin. Volume loss is an integral part of aging and happens because the skin becomes less effective at maintaining and restoring collagen. Juvéderm is made with a synthetic, cross-linked form of hyaluronic acid which is normally found in the skin and is responsible for retaining moisture and suppleness, meaning Juvéderm can be safely absorbed into the body over time.
Juvéderm and other dermal fillers are an excellent way to rejuvenate your look without the downtime of surgery. Some common reasons patients opt for Juvéderm include:
- “I’m starting to see lines and wrinkles.”
- “I don’t want to go through with surgery yet.”
- “My smile lines make me look older than I feel.”
Juvéderm is FDA-approved for correcting moderate to severe lines and folds around the nose and mouth, sometimes called parentheses lines. If you want to treat other areas of the face with dermal fillers, then we can recommend other options from the Juvéderm family of fillers. Many patients combine dermal filler treatments with Botox or professional skincare treatments for best results.
Many patients can benefit from Juvéderm treatment. During a consultation with our expert injectors, we’ll discuss your ideal outcomes and goals for dermal filler treatments to make sure you have good expectations for what Juvéderm can achieve. We’ll also discuss your health history and any allergies you have that might affect whether Juvéderm is the right option for you.
Juvéderm treatments can be performed in as little as fifteen minutes at our Cary office. We can apply a topical numbing cream so that you’re comfortable and relaxed. The product is placed under the surface of the skin with a very fine needle once you’re ready. Our expert injectors can make sure your results are natural and flattering since dermal filler treatments produce immediate results.
After treatment with Juvéderm, you can return home immediately. You’ll see instant results with a noticeable reduction in lines and folds that can last for up to one year, after which you can return for a touch-up with our expert injectors.
It’s common to experience some sensitivity and redness as well as bruising at the injection sites after treatment, but this usually subsides within a day or so. You can use an ice pack to manage any discomfort and can return to your regular skincare regimen. If you opt for additional cosmetic treatments at the same time, our expert injectors will make sure you have the right instructions to follow.

What kind of fillers do you use?
Here at CARE, we offer Juvederm fillers because we consider them to be the gold standard in both efficacy and predictability. All Juvederm fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance that our bodies naturally produce. Because it is found naturally in our bodies, it is slowly absorbed by the body over time and the risk of rejection is lower overall. These fillers also contain lidocaine, allowing treatment to be much more comfortable during the injection. Some of our most popular fillers include Juvederm Ultra XC, Voluma, and Volbella.
What is a dermal filler?
