The loss of volume in your face is one of the main signs of aging. The amount of volume loss that occurs varies from person to person. In some cases, it can lead to significant changes in facial features, such as the loss of cheekbone definition. Dr. Mishkin can use volumizing dermal fillers such as Juvederm® XC to provide you with the effects of a face lift and restore a more youthful look without the need for extensive plastic surgery.
Juvederm® XC is the smooth gel filler that Dr. Mishkin uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year. Juvederm® XC is manufactured using Hylacross™ technology, creating a smooth consistency gel. It is infused with lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment.
Dr. Mishkin uses Juvederm® XC to:
- Add volume to the cheek area
- Restore facial contours
- Improve lines around the cheeks, chin, and cheekbones
With Juvederm® XC you get the smooth results you expect with the improved comfort you want. Everyone will notice but no one will know.

Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds – like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth.
Using a dermal filler like JUVÉDERM® XC is a safe and effective way to replace the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.
