JUVÉDERM® in Reno, Nevada

At Charles P. Virden, MD in Reno, Nevada, patients receive treatments with Juvéderm Volbella, Vollure, or Voluma depending on their needs and goals. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Charles Virden can create a unique treatment plan that may include one, two, or all of the Juvéderm formulas.

  • Volbella is great for enhancing the lips instantly and contains lidocaine for increased comfort during treatment. Results last approximately 6 months to a year.
  • Vollure is formulated for adding volume to the parenthesis lines that form from the nose to the corners of the mouth. It contains lidocaine as well. Improvements are immediate and typically last from 6 months to a year.
  • Voluma is designed to correct age-related volume loss in the mid-face by adding lift and contour to the cheeks. It contains lidocaine as well. Results are usually seen right away and last up to 2 years.

What to expect during your JUVÉDERM® Procedure

Beforehand, the doctor will determine the appropriate formula, injection site(s), and the correct dosage to begin this in-office treatment. Since Juvéderm already has a numbing agent (Lidocaine) included, additional numbing usually isn’t needed. The filler will be delivered through a fine needle to the lips, cheeks, and/or wrinkles and lines around the nose and mouth. Patients will feel a small prick and a tingling sensation from the injection. The treatment typically lasts 30 – 45 minutes. 

anticipated results

After the injectable, there might be slight redness in the treated area. There could also be mild swelling, but it should go away rather quickly. Since there’s no downtime associated with Juvéderm, patients can return to their normal activities immediately. The face will be dramatically improved immediately after the treatment, and most patients can expect reliable results for up to 1 year.
