How it works: FDA-approved JUVÉDERM is one of the most popular and versatile options for reducing wrinkles around the nose and mouth. JUVÉDERM products are made of hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the human body. It helps to keep skin and other tissues supple and resilient. JUVÉDERM fillers replace lost volume and hydration, plumping skin and filling in depressed areas in the skin that develop with age.
What it treats: Dr. Stridde prefers to use JUVÉDERM for medium-depth folds, especially the nasolabial folds, which run between the nose and the corners of the mouth. JUVÉDERM is also useful for shaping and plumping the lips.
Treatment basics: JUVÉDERM treatments typically take less than 30 minutes, and you may return to your regular activities immediately afterward. Minor swelling, bruising, and redness at the injection site are common, but short-lived.
How long it lasts: Depending on where it was administered, the results of a single JUVÉDERM treatment can last between 9 and 12 months.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
How it works: JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC uses a different formulation of hyaluronic acid that makes it ideal for adding volume to age related volume loss, especially the cheeks. Approved by the FDA in 2013, it is the only filler approved specifically for adding volume and lift to the cheeks. Because volume loss can result in loss of skin fullness, it can age your appearance as much as wrinkles or sagging. VOLUMA offers another important option for looking younger. It may be administered on its own for a subtly "lifted" appearance or in tandem with other injectable treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic for complete, personalized results.
What it treats: VOLUMA is especially appropriate for deeper injection, and is used for adding volume to the cheeks or chin.
Treatment basics: VOLUMA injections typically take less than 30 minutes, and you may return to your routine activities right away. Minor swelling, bruising, and redness in the treatment area are common, but temporary.
How long it lasts: Under ideal circumstances, the results of VOLUMA can last up to 2 years.

How it works: Like JUVÉDERM, BELOTERO BALANCE also uses hyaluronic acid to fill facial lines and folds. Its unique formulation allows for it to be injected at a very superficial level for natural-looking results that avoid the visible or palpable lump or line in the skin that can occur with other fillers.
What it treats: BELOTERO is particularly well-suited for the deep skin crease in the nasolabial folds and other moderate-to-severe lines and wrinkles, particularly around the mouth. Dr. Stridde and his aesthetic staff often use BELOTERO BALANCE to fill vertical lip lines, or add volume to areas with thin skin, such as the tear troughs.
Treatment basics: Like other dermal fillers, BELOTERO BALANCE doesn't require any sort of recuperation. Instead, patients can get back to their usual routines immediately after their brief appointments. Side effects are generally quite mild and limited to injection site reactions. These include redness, tenderness, itchiness, and bruising, and symptoms typically go away on their own within a couple of days.
How long it lasts: The results of BELOTERO BALANCE typically last for 6 to 12 months.
