While Dr. Montilla performs the full spectrum of plastic surgery procedures, our practice also includes a bevy of non-surgical procedures. The ever-popular Juvederm injectable is one of the foremost non-surgical procedures that can provide patients with life-changing treatment. With several variants to choose from, Juvederm offers a panoply of rejuvenating options for our patients.
How Does Juvéderm Work?
Juvederm uses hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in all mammals. This substance hydrates and adds volume to the skin. When properly applied, Juvederm smooths wrinkles and folds, such as the nasolabial folds (smile lines) and so-called parentheses lines around the mouth. Juvederm can be used to plump the entire mouth area, providing a more youthful appearance.
Another procedure Juvederm is used for is the non-surgical rhinoplasty. If you're looking for a non-invasive route to a nose job, Juvederm is a great option.
What Types of Juvéderm Do We Offer?
The Juvéderm collection of fillers features multiple unique treatments. At Montilla Plastic Surgery, we have the following Juvéderm fillers available:
Juvéderm Voluma XC is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler proven to treat signs of aging in the midface area. Primarily, this filler is used to add natural-looking volume to the cheeks, which includes restoring lost volume to cheeks with a sunken or hollow appearance. Thanks to its advanced formula, Voluma can often provide results lasting for up to two years.
Juvéderm Vollure XC
Juvéderm Vollure XC is another hyaluronic acid-based filler used to reduce signs of facial aging. This filler’s primary purpose is to reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds and marionette lines on the sides of the mouth. Vollure achieves this by adding volume to the areas and smoothing the skin. Made with patented Vycross Technology, this dermal filler offers exceptionally long-lasting results.
Juvéderm Ultra XC
Juvéderm Ultra XC is a versatile dermal filler that can be used both to soften lines and wrinkles around the mouth and enhance the contours and texture of the lips. This advanced filler allows you to completely revitalize the appearance of your lower-face area.
Juvéderm Volbella XC
Another excellent option for enhancing the lips is Juvéderm Volbella XC. This filler consists of a thinner, more pliable gel than other dermal fillers, which allows the lips to maintain their smooth, natural texture. Volbella is an effective filler for adding plumpness to the lips and smoothing lip lines. Results from this filler can regularly last for up to one year.

Recovery from Juvederm
The Juvederm recovery process is minimal. Immediately following your treatment, we will apply an ice pack to help prevent swelling. On occasion, patients experience various side effects following Juvederm treatment, including redness and swelling. In general, such symptoms resolve within hours of treatment. Bruising is a possible side effect as well, but with our meticulous treatment, it is exceedingly rare. Call our office to learn more about Juvederm treatment.
