Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC Richmond
Juvederm® is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Dr. Ferland eases Juvederm® injectable gel under the skin to provide a smooth, natural look and feel – so everyone will notice (but no one will know)! In addition, Juvederm injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.
How It Works
JUVEDERM ® is injected below the wrinkle to create volume in the tissue and raise the floor closer to the surface of the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide that occurs naturally and abundantly in the body. It is hydrophilic in nature, attracting and holding water.
Juvederm® XC is Juvederm® infused with lidocaine (local anesthetic) to improve comfort during treatment. With JUVÉDERM® XC Dr. Ferland can provide the smooth results you expect, with the improved comfort you want.
Treatments with Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC
Juvederm® Ultra Plus is highly crossed-linked making it more robust and longer lasting.

- The marionette lines (or melomental folds)
- The cheeks
- The nasojugal groove
- the brows
- the forehead
Recovery and Results
