Injectable Options for Volume in Nashville
JUVEDERM® is the name for a family of smooth gel fillers used to address signs of aging due to volume loss. This prescription injectable cosmetic can smooth out moderate facial wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and perioral lines, such as smoker’s lines, as well as improve the look of the jawline, cheeks, under-eye areas, and lips. A single treatment of JUVEDERM® at the Nashville-based Maxwell Aesthetics is enough to provide natural-looking, more-youthful results that can last up to a year or more.
The JUVEDERM® XC family is infused with lidocaine to minimize discomfort during the injection process. Highly trained and experienced nurse injectors administer the treatment with an eye for safety and satisfying cosmetic results.

JUVEDERM® Ultra XC
JUVEDERM® Ultra XC is the softest dermal filler in the JUVEDERM® family, used to treat medium-depth wrinkles, smooth out depressed scars, and enhance lips. Ultra XC contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring molecule responsible for hydration in the skin. It also contains lidocaine as an anaesthetic for comfort.
Ideal Candidates for Ultra XC
This filler is ideal for Nashville-area patients looking to reduce the look of age-related wrinkles and folds that form on the face due to volume loss. Women who are breast feeding or pregnant are not ideal candidates for this dermal filler treatment. Patients who are taking blood thinners or have a bleeding disorder may be more likely to bruise during JUVEDERM® injections and need to plan accordingly.
Ultra XC Treatment Process
JUVEDERM® Ultra XC can be administered quickly. A topical anesthetic is used to minimize discomfort. The injections themselves take anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes to administer.
Ultra XC Benefits
The effects of JUVEDERM® Ultra XC are visible once injected, though the results will become more apparent in the following days as any injection-related side effects resolve.
Ultra XC Side Effects
JUVEDERM® Ultra XC treatments do not require downtime, though there may be some minimal side effects, including tenderness, temporary redness, bruising, or swelling at the injected site. Patients should contact Maxwell Aesthetics with any unexpected treatment side effects.
Maintaining Ultra XC Results
Patients who want to maintain their results will need one to two treatments per year, with specifics depending on the person. Results tend to last between four to 12 months. Over time, patients may require fewer treatments due to a subsequent increase in collagen.
JUVEDERM® Ultra Plus XC
JUVEDERM® Ultra Plus XC is used to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles, deep nasolabial folds, lips, and marionette lines. It can treat such dramatic wrinkles due to its thicker solution compared to the lighter Ultra XC. This dermal filler can also be used as part of a “liquid facelift” treatment to adjust and restructure the contours of the face or to rejuvenate the hands. The filler is made with lidocaine anesthetic for comfort and has a hyaluronic acid gel base. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in our skin and is primarily responsible for maintaining proper hydration levels.
Ideal Candidates for Ultra Plus XC
JUVEDERM® Ultra Plus XC is typically used to treat moderate to severe signs of aging. This dermal filler is ideal for Nashville-area patients looking to obtain smoother skin and to minimize the look of deep skin depressions, wrinkles, and folds. It works on all skin types and skin colors. Breastfeeding or pregnant patients are not ideal candidates for JUVEDERM® Ultra Plus XC, same as Ultra.
Ultra Plus XC Treatment Process
JUVEDERM® Ultra Plus XC treatments are quick and contain lidocaine to minimize sensation, and a local anesthetic is used to provide additional comfort. Once it sets in, the injector administers the dermal filler itself. The treatment should take 15 to 40 minutes, depending on the severity of the folds and the number of injections required.
Ultra Plus XC Benefits
The results of JUVEDERM® Ultra Plus XC are typically visible as soon as the filler is injected. Patients should notice a significant decrease in fine lines and wrinkles and other signs of aging signs, as well as a more naturally plump look on the face.
Ultra Plus XC Side Effects
Downtime is not required for Nashville patients receiving a JUVEDERM® Ultra Plus XC treatment. However, there may be immediate side effects including tenderness, temporary redness, bruising, or swelling near the injected area.
Maintaining Ultra Plus XC Results
A single JUVEDERM® Ultra Plus XC injection should generate results that last for six to 12 months. The speed at which a patient’s body breaks down the filler will significantly determine the longevity of the results. Over time, Nashville-area patients may find that they will need less frequent injections and smaller doses to maintain results due to a boost in collagen production.
JUVEDERM VOLUMA® XC
JUVEDERM VOLUMA® XC has a main focus on addressing age-related volume loss in areas of the mid-face-primarily the parts known as the cheeks, or “apples,” and hands. Like all JUVEDERM® products, VOLUMA® XC is made with a hyaluronic acid base, and the “XC” in the name indicates that it contains lidocaine anesthetic for added comfort.
Ideal Candidates for VOLUMA® XC
JUVEDERM VOLUMA® XC works on all skin types and skin colors. It is ideal for Nashville-area patients who want to restore volume in the face.
VOLUMA® XC Treatment Process
Our JUVEDERM VOLUMA® XC treatment is quick, and there is minimal discomfort. Patients can request a local anesthetic to provide additional comfort, after which the dermal filler is injected into the target site. The treatment should take 15 to 40 minutes, depending on the number of injections needed.
VOLUMA® XC Benefits
JUVEDERM VOLUMA® XC treats aging-related mid-face changes and enhances the appearance, curvature, and contour of the mid-face area. Treated areas of the face can appear fuller, rounder, and more lifted for up to two years. By adding volume and structure to the mid-face, skin that has sagged over time can get new support. This means VOLUMA® XC injections can also reduce the appearance of jowls and an overly soft jawline.
VOLUMA® XC Side Effects
The side effects of JUVEDERM VOLUMA® XC can include swelling, itching, tenderness, redness, bruising, and mild discoloration at the treated area. Using ice packs should resolve these symptoms within a few days.
Maintaining VOLUMA® XC Results
The results of a JUVEDERM VOLUMA® XC injection session should last anywhere from 18 months to two years. Nashville patients looking to maintain results can schedule touch-ups every two years.
JUVEDERM VOLLURE™ XC
VOLLURE™ XC is used mainly to reduce moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth, such as nasolabial folds that form between the cheeks and chin, and marionette lines that extend from the corners of the mouth to the chin. This product offers “the best of both worlds”: It is durable like VOLUMA® XC but, much like VOLBELLA® XC, it can be easily spread to fill in lines and wrinkles for a natural-looking result. Like all of the other fillers in the line, VOLLURE™ XC is derived from hyaluronic acid. The “XC” means that it contains lidocaine for pain relief.
JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® XC
VOLBELLA® XC is a thin, light, and highly spreadable filler. It is intended for delicate skin, such as very fine lines around the eyes and the lips, to help soften the lines in these areas. VOLBELLA® XC is formulated with lidocaine to minimize discomfort during the injection process. Just like the other members of the JUVEDERM® family, VOLBELLA® XC is also made with a hyaluronic acid base.
Non-surgical procedures beyond JUVEDERM® injections at Maxwell Aesthetics include Restylane® (another family of dermal fillers, each with a specialized focus and formula), BOTOX® (a neuromodulator designed to smooth out wrinkles by inhibiting muscle activity), and Dysport® (another neuromodulator). Patients can also choose laser skin resurfacing, IPL, chemical peels, BodyTITE, and more.
