For most patients, the first wrinkles that appear on the face are caused by repetitive facial movements and expressions, such as crow’s feet and horizontal forehead lines. These can be treated using Botox. As the natural aging process continues, however, fat deposits on the face naturally shift away from the upper two-thirds of the face, the skin loses natural hydration, and the effects of gravity begin to show. This lost volume results in additional wrinkles around the mouth or across the cheeks as well as a hollow or sunken appearance. When this is the case, injections of dermal fillers are a great solution.
Dermal fillers are a type of injectable treatment that restore youthful volume to the face in key areas such as the cheeks, below the eyes, or around the mouth. The products can also be used to contour key areas such as the chin or add volume to areas such as the lips. By restoring lost volume, patients can enjoy reduced wrinkles, smoother skin, and an overall rejuvenated look.
At Lewisburg Plastic Surgery, dermal filler injections are completed by experts including our board-certified plastic surgeons & registered nurse injector. We offer a range of filler options to suit various patient needs.
Dermal filler injections can be completed in as little as 30 minutes. After a brief consultation, injections can be made in our office. Prior to receiving injections, you should avoid taking any blood-thinning medications or supplements such as aspirin, St. John’s Wort, or Vitamin E. In most cases, numbing is not necessary as the injectables include lidocaine within their formulas for more comfortable treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® is the #1 selling collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the U.S. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® Collection of Fillers adds volume to a different area of the face—without surgery. All JUVÉDERM® fillers are smooth, crystal-clear gels that are administered by injection in your aesthetic healthcare provider’s office.
What is hyaluronic acid?
The JUVÉDERM® Collection of Fillers is made from hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® Collection of Fillers is made from a modified form of HA.
What is the treatment experience like?
Your provider will take your medical history and provide a facial analysis. Be prepared to discuss your areas of concern. This is not a surgical treatment. Actual treatment can take 15 minutes to 60 minutes, depending on which area of your face is being treated.
Does it hurt?
The amount of discomfort depends on the sensitivity of the patient’s skin. Sometimes a topical anesthetic is used to dull the pain or ice to help further minimize discomfort. JUVÉDERM® injectable gels labeled with “XC” contain pain-reducing lidocaine to help manage pain or discomfort during the injection.
When will I see results?
You will see results immediately/instantly.
How long do results last?
Results may last one year to two years, with optimal treatment and depending on the formula used.
What are the possible side effects?
Side effects from Juvéderm are mild and usually include injection-related side effects such as slight redness and bruising or swelling. Typically, these side effects dissipate within a few hours but swelling can last up to two weeks.

At Lewisburg Plastic Surgery, we offer a liquid facelift procedure. This treatment is a non-surgical alternative to a traditional facelift for patients with less severe signs of aging and good skin elasticity. While a traditional facelift patient has excess drooping skin, a liquid facelift may see similar unwanted signs of aging caused primarily by volume loss. As such, dermal fillers including Juvéderm can be used to restore volume to multiple areas of the face. Your liquid facelift will be carefully planned by our board-certified plastic surgeons for customized results.
Juvéderm is not permanent, as the body naturally and safely metabolizes the product over time. However, the treatment is relatively long-lasting, with patients enjoying results for up to two years on average. After the product dissipates, maintenance injections are an option.
