If you’ve noticed lines around your mouth and nose or diminished volume throughout your face, you’re not alone; these are very common signs of aging. In the past, surgery was needed to reduce these symptoms. But now, the JUVÉDERM family of injectable fillers helps Guilford, CT men and women every day.
Who Should Get JUVÉDERM?
If you dislike certain signs of facial aging and want a non-surgical solution, you should consider JUVÉDERM.
Dr. Collins can use JUVÉDERM to:
- Enhance and plump lips
- Restore facial volume
- Treat facial lines, folds and wrinkles
Because JUVÉDERM injections will not cause pigment changes, it is approved for people of all skin types.

What Does JUVÉDERM Do?
JUVÉDERM is made of hyaluronic acid. Your body naturally produces hyaluronic acid. It helps your skin look plump and youthful. As you age, your body produces less hyaluronic acid. Your body breaks down the hyaluronic acid in your skin faster than you can replace it. At that point, wrinkles appear and your skin loses volume.
JUVÉDERM replaces the hyaluronic acid that your body has lost.
Dr. Collins will inject JUVÉDERM into the areas of your face where your skin has lost volume. She makes a series of injections, then carefully massages the area to make sure that the JUVÉDERM is evenly distributed.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC
At some point in our lives, wrinkles will become noticeable in our skin, whether it’s through aging, genetics, or environmental causes. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE XC can help replenish volume in the skin, smoothing out wrinkles and parentheses lines. The JUVÉDERM VOLLURE XC formula contains lidocaine to assist in decreasing sensitivity for patients upon injection. The lidocaine can better assure that patients can feel comfortable as our medical staff administers this exciting dermal filler.

JUVEDERM VOLBELLA is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. When injected into or near the lips, this product infuses the treated area with additional volume and fullness. But what sets JUVEDERM VOLBELLA apart from other dermal fillers is the fact that it is formulated using VYCROSS™ technology. This technology incorporates a combination of both low and high molecular weight technology to help hyaluronic acid chains blend with themselves and the skin tissues more efficiently.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
Juvéderm, VOLUMA XC is an FDA-approved filler that instantly restores volume to the cheek area. This new filler is an HA gel-based product which is injected with a small needle into the face providing the patient with an instant youthful look. As we age, we lose volume in our face due to gravity and the loss of elasticity. VOLUMA offers a remedy to aging gracefully by restoring the lost volume. Patients who have received VOLUMA feel and look years younger while maintaining a natural look. This FDA approved filler highlights as the first HA filler that can last up to 2 years. Dr. Collins was the first doctor to inject VOLUMA in her Guilford, CT office on the shoreline.
Recovery & Related Procedures
The results of JUVÉDERM are long lasting. Patients see results for up to one year. JUVÉDERM is not permanent—eventually your body breaks down the hyaluronic acid and naturally clears it away.
For the first 24 hours after your JUVÉDERM treatment, you may wish to indirectly ice the treated area to reduce minor side effects like redness, swelling, or bruising. You are free to return to your regular activities with no further downtime.
JUVÉDERM is not the only hyaluronic acid filler on the market today. Restylane® is an alternate hyaluronic acid filler. Other non-surgical treatments such as BOTOX® and Dysport® (which are not facial fillers) can be used to treat signs of aging on the forehead and around the eyes. For long-term results, Dr. Collins can also perform a brow lift or facelift to achieve a more permanent correction of the signs of facial aging.
