Dermatologist Dr. Bonnie Furner in San Antonio, Texas has unmatched expertise using fillers for cosmetic procedures. She believes in using only the safest and most effective products available: Juvéderm® and Voluma™.
For your comfort, we offer topical numbing and only use Juvéderm products that contain a numbing agent called lidocaine (Juvéderm XC and XC+). The ultimate goal of using a filler is to stimulate the existing collagen in your skin, so that you will begin to naturally produce more collagen and have fuller, firmer skin.
Juvéderm® is the ideal solution for erasing fine to deep wrinkles on all skin types and tones. Made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring sugar found in the human body, Juvéderm is a dermal filler that creates a fuller, more youthful appearance by plumping the skin to add volume.
Juvéderm is available in various strengths so you can customize treatments for your particular skin needs. This safe, in-office procedure takes only minutes to perform and has very little recovery time. You will see immediate, natural-looking results that can last from 6 months to a year, depending on the formula used and the area treated.
Juvéderm Voluma™ XC
Juvéderm has also developed a product that adds volume specifically to the cheek area, called Voluma™ XC. This dermal filler is FDA-approved for cheek augmentation only. Dr. Furner injects the medication under the skin, right on top of the cheekbone, with a small needle. Like Juvéderm, Voluma contains lidocaine, which numbs the cheek area to reduce pain and discomfort.
The result is more contoured cheek bone and a younger appearance that lasts for at least 2 years. Many patients believe they look five years younger! Voluma XC has been used in Europe for many years, but was approved by the FDA in January 2014 following a 2-year safety study.
The first and only FDA-approved filler proven to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of vertical lip lines for up to 1 year.
