Our Boston Juvederm - one of the softest hyaluronic acid fillers - is one of the easiest and most effective ways to refresh your appearance.
At Boston Medical Aesthetics, Juvederm is used to fill out lines and wrinkles, smooth acne scars, lift sunken cheeks, and enhance the lip size and shape. Juvederm is the most frequently chosen injectable filler for the lips because of its smooth, soft gel formula.
which is a mild numbing medication. Lidocaine is designed to minimize discomfort from the injections and ensure your procedure is as comfortable as possible. At our practice, we also ice the treatment area for added comfort.
When treating wrinkles or folds, Juvederm is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The injected gel produces natural volume that lifts up the skin and smoothes out the wrinkle. The results can be seen immediately and typically last about a year depending on the amount used and the area treated. The entire treatment session often takes less than 30 minutes.
Juvederm is part of the Juvederm collection of volumizing dermal fillers. Juvederm contains hyaluronic acid - a natural substance found in the body. Because hyaluronic acid is similar to your own tissue, allergic reactions are extremely rare and there's no need for a sensitivity test.

Juvederm is just one type of dermal filler injection. Our expert injector, Jennifer Canesi, APN-BC, will choose the perfect formula (or combination of formulas) that best fits your skin's needs and your cosmetic goals. Jennifer is a highly skilled injector who consistently creates results that look fresh and youthful while maintaining a soft, natural appearance.
Juvederm is used to add volume to the face and reduce the appearance of facial creases. As we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in our skin declines. This results in hollowing in the cheeks as well as vertical lines around the mouth and thinning of the lips.
Juvederm can also be used in combination with other facial rejuvenation treatments, like BOTOX Cosmetic, for even greater effects.
By adding hyaluronic acid back into the skin with Juvederm, you can restore youthful facial contours and soften the look of wrinkles. When you visit us for Juvederm injections in Boston, MA, you'll enjoy:
If you are interested in restoring lost facial volume, enhancing your lips, or reducing the look of facial folds around the nose and mouth, Juvederm can help. Our practice recommends Juvederm for people who:
At Boston Medical Aesthetics Juvederm injections can be performed in just a few minutes and the entire appointment usually takes 30 minutes or less. Jennifer will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan to get you the results you want. Before your procedure, ice and a topical numbing cream are applied to the treatment area to help minimize discomfort.
Jennifer will then strategically place a precise amount of Juvederm to specific areas of the face. The injection process takes only a few minutes and is very tolerable. Once complete, you'll be able to see your results instantly. There is minimal recovery time associated with Juvederm injections. Most people go back to work immediately or carry on with their day as normal. You may experience some redness, swelling, or light bruising after your treatment. These side effects usually resolve in a few hours or days and can easily be hidden with makeup. Your final results should appear as soon as all swelling has subsided (usually in 3 to 5 days). Juvederm is a long-lasting product, so you should enjoy your new look for about 1 year before a touch-up is needed. Please note we do not currently offer dermal fillers for the nose, tear trough area or temples.
Some may wish to add subtle volume to their lips; others may want to soften the appearance of the vertical lines above them. Lines such such as these are often caused by factors such as sun exposure and repeated muscle movement. Fortunately there's Juvederm Volbella - the first and only FDA-approved filler proven to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of vertical lip lines for up to 1 year.
As your skin ages, its ability to heal and resist wear can diminish. A build-up of damaged skin cells and a loss of collagen means lines that show up during everyday movements like pursing your lips or smiling can become permanent. Juvederm Volbella counteracts this damage by plumping looser skin and simultaneously stimulating your body's production of collagen and healthy skin cells.
Ideal candidates for Juvederm Volbella treatments are physically healthy overall and are non-smokers. They also have a good understanding of the procedure, its limits, and realistic expectations for their outcome. Further, they know how to take appropriate care of their skin — including daily sun protection — and are committed to maintaining a healthy routine and lifestyle.
Juvederm Volbella is a safe and proven injectable for plumping lips and reducing or eliminating the appearance of lines around them. However, you shouldn't use Volbella if you're allergic to lidocaine or have a known sensitivity to other ingredients used in the filler. We'll discuss your medical history thoroughly during your consultation to make sure Juvederm Volbella is the right choice for you.
At Boston Medical Aesthetics, we use Juvederm Volbella to help people look and feel younger by restoring and refining the look of their lips. The treatment typically takes less than 30 minutes and there's no need to put your life on hold. Our highly-trained aesthetic technician will make a series of injections in the targeted area to create balanced and natural results. Following your treatment, you may have some slight swelling or tenderness, but most patients are able to go back to your daily routine immediately.
You should take care to protect the treated area for the first week following your Juvederm Volbella injections. Ensuring that the area isn't put under stress or exposed to the sun will be crucial for seeing the best results. Keep in mind that some people may require more than one treatment to achieve their optimal outcome.

We welcome you to come in and meet with Jennifer Canesi, APN-BC for a complimentary consultation. Call 617-973-9700 today!

Wrinkles are a fact of life as we age. But deep lines and wrinkles can add years to your appearance even when you don't feel tired or old. Skin is damaged by time and the sun and loses its resilience and elasticity, allowing wrinkles to set in and get deeper and become permanent.
One of the more common places this can happen is the creases along your cheek between your nose and the corners of your mouth. These nasolabial folds — sometimes called "laugh lines" or "smile lines" — become prominent and can give your face an aged appearance. Softening their look can make a huge difference in how you look and feel about yourself, and that's exactly what Juvederm Vollure XC was designed to do.
At Boston Medical Aesthetics, our Juvederm Vollure XC treatments are quick, easy, and painless. The entire appointment typically takes less than half an hour, and no anesthetic is necessary. You'll be able to resume your daily activities immediately.
Our board-certified aesthetic specialist will get you comfortable and relaxed in one of our luxurious treatment rooms. They will then make a series of injections around the targeted area, being careful to apply the filler to create smooth and natural looking results.
You will need to protect your skin in the treated area from stress and excess sun exposure for at least a week. Keeping your skin healthy and protected is crucial as it heals and to ensure your positive results last as long as possible.
Juvederm Vollure XC is a safe and reliable medical product, but some people can be allergic to its ingredients, including lidocaine. Make sure to let your provider know if you have any known allergies or sensitivities during your consultation.

Juvederm Voluma at Boston Medical Aesthetics
Juvederm Voluma XC is the first and only hyaluronic acid filler cleared by the FDA to restore volume loss in the cheeks and chin area. With age, volume loss in the mid-face causes the cheeks to flatten and sag. By injecting Juvederm Voluma XC under the skin with a small needle, the cheek area can be subtly lifted, temporarily reversing this sign of aging. It also works beautifully for augmenting the chin and jawline, restoring overall facial harmony in a subtle manner.
Rather than spot-treating individual wrinkles and filling them, we can now take a more comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation by minimizing the signs of aging in the midface or chin area first, and filling residual wrinkles later. Juvederm Voluma XC works with its sister product, Juvederm, to produce more complete results.
At Boston Medical Aesthetics, we are delighted to offer Juvederm Voluma XC as part of our complete range of anti-aging treatments. The subtle lift achieved with Juvederm Voluma XC can make a dramatic difference. The best part is that Juvederm Voluma XC provides an instant lift that's long-lasting - results can last up to 2 years.
Our Boston Juvederm Voluma XC patients have been achieving youthful, contoured cheeks since September 3, 2019. Patients surveyed in clinical trials reported feeling that they looked up to 5 years younger after treatment. In exciting news, the FDA also cleared Juvederm Voluma XC for chin augmentation on June 15, 2020.
Age-related changes to the midface occur because of fat, bone, and muscle loss. The loss of these youthful structures in the face creates a thin, hollowed appearance. Juvederm Voluma XC combats lost volume by plumping the midface, chin, and cheekbones.
Juvederm Voluma XC has a thicker consistency than the original Juvederm, which makes it ideal for facial contouring. It is designed to be placed on top of facial bones - such as the cheekbones or chin - to add volume, lift, and fullness.
The size and shape of the chin may change with age due to changing fat, bone, and muscle loss that occurs over the years. These structural anatomical changes occur incrementally, gradually changing the position and contours of the chin. Unfortunately, this has a devastating effect on an individual's appearance. A poorly contoured chin makes a face appear less chiseled and aged.
Juvederm Voluma XC restores chin shape and volume in a series of quick injections that have an instant effect. Your doctor can create and mold the chin to the desired contours — all without performing surgery. Thanks to Juvederm Voluma XC's thicker gel consistency (compared to the original Voluma product), it works exceptionally well in the chin area. The treatment is FDA-approved to work. Best of all, there is no downtime and very minimal injection site pain.
For instant non-surgical chin enhancement, ask us about Voluma XC.
In ground breaking news, the FDA recently approved Juvederm Voluma for non-surgical chin augmentation. Augmenting the chin's appearance may not be the first thing that comes to mind when considering how to make an individual's overall appearance look better, yet it is among the most effective ways to achieve total facial harmony.
For patients that wish to improve their looks by enhancing the chin without resorting to permanent chin augmentation with surgery, Allergan Aesthetics is proud to announce the FDA's first — and only — approved cosmeceutical drug for chin augmentation with Juvederm Voluma XC. This is one of the most exciting advancements in the medical aesthetics industry. Now, adults aged 21 and older can feel confident in the chin's appearance with a top-of-the-line dermal filler that is proven to work. Clinical studies performed in the United States now reveal that Juvederm Voluma XC is both safe and effective in the chin region. In these studies, the majority of participants reported high patient satisfaction rates one-year post-treatment.
For years, patients that were unwilling to have off-label chin enhancement with dermal fillers had only permanent chin implants to consider.
While chin implants provide a remarkable and reliable improvement to the shape and contour of a chin that's too small, narrow, or poorly defined, the cost of chin implants is a deterrent for many patients. Having to commit to a permanent change to the appearance led some patients to feel stuck with a chin they do not like. The downtime and pain of chin implant surgery only further complicated matters. Now that Voluma chin injections are FDA approved, patients benefit from a safe cosmetic option that is far less invasive than cosmetic surgery, yet no less effective.
Now, Juvederm Voluma XC has opened new doors for our patients, allowing them to enjoy long lasting — but not permanent — chin augmentation without the risks, recovery time, or out-of-pocket costs associated with chin implant surgery. Dermal fillers for chin augmentation are also an excellent way to trial the look of chin implants, without committing to surgery.
Patients can watch a new chin take shape in less than 30 minutes, right before their eyes. With minimal pain, greater precision, and fewer risks than cosmetic surgery, Voluma XC is a clear winner for many patients that wish to augment the chin area. Voluma for chin augmentation and jawline contouring is so remarkable, many patients choose to continue having convenient and effective chin fillers every 1 - 2 years, skipping permanent chin augmentation surgery altogether.

Boston Medical Aesthetics is proud to provide our patients with a range of aesthetic treatments that have a profound impact on a patient's appearance. Juvederm Voluma XC is an excellent product to use in conjunction with other dermal fillers, or with wrinkle-relaxing products like Botox Cosmetic. Combining facial rejuvenation treatments can enhance the results of Juvederm Voluma XC and make your outcome more rewarding.
Juvederm Voluma XC is an excellent option for people who want to correct age-related volume loss in the cheek. It's also effective for people who want to recontour their jawline or chin. Because Juvederm Voluma XC is meant to be placed close to the bone, it's not recommended for areas like the lips or under the eyes.
We may recommend Juvederm Voluma XC if you:
At Boston Medical Aesthetics, our board-certified nurse practitioner Jennifer Canesi, APN-BC, performs dermal filler injections at our Boston med spa. Jennifer has in-depth training and experience using Juvederm Voluma XC and is known for her aesthetic eye and natural-looking results. She'll work with you to develop a treatment plan that best addresses your needs and cosmetic goals.
Juvederm Voluma XC injections are considered "lunchtime" procedures because the treatment can be performed in 30 minutes or less and requires no downtime. There's no preparation needed before your appointment. However, we do recommend that you avoid blood thinning medications for 1 - 2 weeks before your injections. This helps reduce the risk of bruising.
Just before your procedure, ice is applied to the treatment areas to minimize discomfort, swelling, and bruising. A topical numbing cream is also available. However, Juvederm Voluma XC contains lidocaine - a numbing agent - so many people don't require additional pain relief. During treatment, Jennifer will use a thin needle to place Juvederm Voluma XC in areas of facial hollowing such as the cheeks or chin region. She will gently press the filler into your skin to sculpt a more youthful, contoured face shape. This will take only a few minutes and most people are very comfortable during this process.
The results are visible instantly, and Jennifer will provide you with a mirror so that you can watch your new facial contours take shape. Once your procedure is complete, you can return to your normal daily activities. Your skin may appear red, swollen, or slightly bruised for a day or 2 after your injections. However, these side effects are mild and resolve quickly. In about 3 to 5 days, most swelling and bruising should be gone, and you should see your final results. Because Juvederm Voluma XC is a thicker formula, it is very long-lasting - often as long as 1 or 2 years.
