Why Should I Choose Ultra Smooth Skin for Juvederm in Scottsdale & Chandler, AZ?
Founder and director of Ultra Smooth and certified aesthetic nurse practitioner (ANP-C) Lisa Williams is experienced in aesthetic injectables and other anti-aging treatments, giving our patients the younger, more vibrant look they desire. She and Ultra Smooth Skin's staff of aesthetic injectors administer Juvederm and other facial fillers at our three locations in Scottsdale, North Scottsdale, and Chandler, AZ.
Ultra Smooth Skin is one of Allergan's Black Diamond providers, which means that we are one of the country's top providers of Botox Cosmetic and Juvederm fillers.

At any of our three locations, you can have a Juvederm or other injectable treatment formulated to diminish the signs of aging. You'll receive personalized care, and each treatment is performed by experienced aesthetic injectors.
When you arrive at one of our three locations for a consultation, we will assess your skin condition, go over your medical history, and discuss your desired results. During your initial consultation, we will develop a customized treatment plan. If we determine that you are a good candidate for Juvederm, we'll take steps to begin the treatment or schedule a follow-up appointment for you to receive your first injections.
Your aesthetic injector will ensure your total comfort during treatment. Topical numbing cream or ice may be used before and during treatment. The injections contain a small amount of lidocaine, a local anesthetic. Each injection is administered using a fine-gauge needle. Your aesthetic injector will insert the filler into the areas of the face or lips requiring treatment while molding and shaping the filler.
Your Results and Follow-up Treatments
Once the treatment is completed, your skin will have more volume. It will also likely display a smoother appearance. Most people require one treatment to obtain optimal wrinkle smoothing. Studies show that the results usually last for about a year before needing a follow-up treatment, though this varies depending on the patient and the area treated.

How Does Juvederm Work?
Juvederm is a synthetic version of hyaluronic acid and contains a small amount of lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic. The human body makes hyaluronic acid naturally to deliver nutrients to the skin and hydrate it. The substance is also a cushioning agent. Your body produces more of it in your youth than it does as you age. Juvederm helps replenish the hyaluronic acid that your body no longer produces, providing you with a more youthful appearance.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Treatment?
A good candidate for Juvederm treatment is someone who is interested in diminishing the look of age lines as well as those who want to enhance their lips. Candidates should be in good health and have sensible expectations regarding what facial fillers can do.
Who Shouldn't Get this Treatment?
Not every cosmetic treatment is for everyone, and while Juvederm is an aesthetic treatment, it's still a medical procedure. People who have a history of severe allergies are usually not good candidates for a filler treatment. This is also true if you are allergic to any ingredient in the filler, including lidocaine. In addition, if you're pregnant or nursing, you should wait until you're through with these life stages before seeking injectables. If one of our providers does not feel that you're a good candidate, they will recommend other treatments or products that may be a better fit.
What Areas Can Be Treated with Juvederm Ultra XC?
Juvederm Ultra has multiple indications for use, including mild-to-moderate wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth (called nasolabial folds and marionette lines). It is also useful for lip enhancement in some patients.
What Areas Can Be Treated with Juvederm Ultra Plus XC?
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is a facial filler designed to treat moderate and severe facial wrinkles and folds. Because it is a thicker formula, it is used to decrease the look of deep lines that develop from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) as well as the lines that may appear from the corners of your mouth to the jawline (marionette lines).
Where Will My Treatment Be Performed?
Dermal filler injections are in-office procedures, so you will receive treatment at one of our three locations in Scottsdale, North Scottsdale, or Chandler, AZ.

A local or topical anesthetic can be applied to the skin before the injection is administered. In addition, these dermal fillers contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to decrease discomfort.

You're unlikely to experience downtime following a your treatment. Along with this, common side effects are typically minimal. However, they may include temporary redness, swelling, bruising or tenderness at the injection site.
How Much Does Juvederm Cost?
Cost for treatment varies based on your location and where you receive the treatment. At our three locations, we participate in the Allē rewards program by Allergan, which allows you to earn points toward treatment discounts. We also offer specials on a monthly basis.
