Enhance Your Lips, Eyes, Tear Troughs, Around Your Mouth, Hands & Temples

Filler

JUVÉDERM® is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar found in our skin.  A common question is “how many syringes does it take to lift my face?” The answer is variable because every face is unique.  A good guideline for someone who has never had JUVÉDERM® is this: For every decade of life, 1-2 syringes will be required. If someone has been using JUVÉDERM® already, less is needed for a beautiful, natural outcome.  There are 5 syringes in a teaspoon, so usually with 1 or 2 teaspoons of sugar, beautiful things can happen. The artistic physicians and aesthetic nurse specialists at Disappearing Act look forward to enhancing your natural beauty <3

BEFORE

AFTER

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved for deep injection in the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is for patients over the age of 21. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is from the makers of the #1 family of fillers.

We love to inject Voluma XC at Disappearing Act.  This remarkable product can last 2 years and has an incredible ability to lift saggy skin without adding too much volume.  This allows for a very natural, subtle result.  Most patients report to us that their friends recognize that they look “refreshed” or “less tired” but they cannot figure out if they had anything “done.”  We like to utilize both needles and MicroCannulas (a non-needle injection tool) which can provide painless results with no downtime or bruises.  The procedure takes less than 30 minutes, so it can be provided during a lunch hour.  Remember, syringes do not inject themselves, so please go to a qualified and experienced injector with artistic skills and a great reputation.  It is not wise to shop for the lowest price.  - Julie Bass Kaplan, MSN, RN, CPSN, PHN, HCMT
