Juvederm is a popular derma filler that contains a unique cross-linked hyaluronic acid for lasting improvement of many concerns, from fine lines to deeper folds. It’s also great for filling in vertical lip lines and sculpting the lips. While there are many hyaluronic acid-based fillers on the market today, our Sarasota cosmetic surgery practice prefers Juvederm because it has been proven to provide safe, effective and lasting results for up to a full year. We offer two types of juvederm, including Juvederm XC, which is effective around the nose and mouth, and Juvederm Voluma XC, which works great for adding volume to the cheeks.
"First Time - Sarasota, FL - He has a great reputation in Sarasota. I have seen Dr. Mobleys work a few times. Finally decided to see him for some filler around my mouth. He was great. Took lots of time, worked within my budget, even used a little sample to save me some money. The results are great. No more frown lines. A little bruising but looks fabulous. Highly recomend him if your in the Sarasota area! - - He has a great reputation in Sarasota. I have seen Dr. Mobleys work a few times. Finally decided to see him for some filler around my mouth.

"Facial Filler - Sarasota, FL - Dr Brian Derby's main attribute, other than being a gifted plastic surgeon, is that he listens and does not suggest procedures that he knows will not have a great end result or are unnecessary.In my case, I wanted to reduce smile lines. After injecting the numbing agent, Dr. Derby used a port (cannula) to inject the Juvederm into the same injection site. This reduced the chance of bruising from multiple injections sites, which is the typical application. After the Juvederm injection, Dr. Derby "rolled" the product with a Q-Tip type applicator, to smooth the lines. This resulted in a natural look, with no lumpiness and in my case, no bruising at all. The slight swelling I experienced disappeared within two days. I was able to go about my day with no signs of a procure being done.In short, Dr. Derby will always be my go-to guy! It pays to go to a professional who is on the cutting edge of his profession. - - I have used Juvaderm in the past and have found it to have natural results, lasting about 8-12 months. The product is perfect for smile lines. In my case, Juvaderm was injected more on one side of my mouth, as there was a difference of deepness between the two sides. The results are natural and the product has been on the market for a long time, with great reviews. I find it a safe product with expected results."- Z. / RealSelf / May 15, 2016
"Great Experience! Results Far Exceeded My Expectations! - I chose Dr. Scott J. Engel to do my breast lift w/implants because of his caring nature and his extreme attention to detail. He describes himself as a perfectionist, and that is exactly what you get....perfection! I previously had Juvederm and Dysport by Dr. Engel and was very happy with his expertise so, naturally, I sought his opinion for the procedures I was interested in. I had..."- L. / RealSelf / Aug 07, 2017
"I can't say enough good things about Dr. Derby. His attention to detail, precision, and friendliness are just awesome. He is pleasant, polite, and genuine. I have been a patient of the practice for 12 years and am just delighted to be under Dr. Derby's care. I have referred many friends to him because I think he is wonderful. I especially appreciate that I don't feel rushed through appointments and that he asks my opinion; he truly cares about his patients and wants to give them their best result. He is a special person and I couldn't be more pleased."- MC / Office Visit / Aug 18, 2017
"Will Continue to Do It... Juvederm and Botox Make Me Look and Feel Younger - I have had juvederm and botox done for years now and I love it. I bruise easy so that is the only bummer. I don't want to go around looking like someone punched me but that is the price we pay!I had juvederm in my lips and it has lasted a long time. I usually go every six months for botox. It is true...the longer you use it, the less you need it!"- 1. / RealSelf / Apr 12, 2010
What to Expect
Juvederm is a gel substance that is administered via a fine needle directly into the skin. There is no sedation needed, although a numbing cream is usually applied first to help with any discomfort. The injection sites will be sterilized and marked with ink. Once the filler is injected, results are immediately noticeable. The practitioner may massage the treated area so the filler spreads evenly. Other than temporary redness, the treatment has no after effect that will prevent a patient from going back to normal routine. Patients should avoid strenuous exercise for approximately 24 hours. After a Juvederm injection, the face will look refreshed, softer and smoother.
This procedure is almost pain-free. This really is determined on a patient’s overall pain tolerance. The product is administered with a fine injection needle and a numbing cream is usually applied first to help with any discomfort. After the treatment, tingling sensations may occur, and there could be some swelling and bruising. These after effects are temporary and usually subside within a few hours.
Derma fillers have an outstanding track record for successfully reducing signs of aging with less risk than surgical cosmetic treatments. Other nonsurgical options include wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX and Dysport. Severe cosmetic issues such as loose and sagging skin may be better resolved by a surgical facelift. The approach taken will be based on the patient’s cosmetic condition and aesthetic goals.
Back to 20?
It is important to set realistic expectations when undergoing any cosmetic enhancement procedure. While the treatment does take years off the face, it can only do so much for patients who have severe wrinkles and skin irregularities. Juvederm will definitely help decrease fine wrinkles and creases, and the skin will appear smoother and softer.
