About The Procedure
Juvéderm XC is a smooth-consistency injectable gel that restores volume to the skin and smooths away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a sugar that occurs naturally in the body. In terms of the skin, HA's role is to deliver nutrients and hydration, and act as a cushioning agent. Young, healthy skin contains a lot of HA, but factors that include aging and sun exposure reduce the amount, causing skin to lose structure and volume. Oculofacial plastic surgeon Dr. James Gordon is well known for his expertise in refined injection techniques that restores volume and rejuvenates the aging face. Dr. Gordon is also one of 3% of doctors qualified as an ExpertInjector™ by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) and the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS).
"Sexy Lips - I'm Asian, 20 years old. Inherited my mom's thin lips. Was searching for the right doctor to pump up my lips. Luckily I found Dr Gordon, he used Restylane on me. It looks very natural. Thank goodness. I don't want to look like Daisy Duck. I am more than happy with my results. Now I got my sister interested. She's going to have hers done by Dr Gordon too. This is good since we both can enjoy thicker lips and people will think we were born with it."- O. / Vitals / Aug 07, 2015
"Loving my "Liquid Facelift" Westchester, NY - To be honest, "Liquid Facelift" sounds so far-fetched I never considered having it donemyself. Seeing the work of Dr Gordon's from my friends convinced me to go see him. The Dr's friendliness and integrity made me book the procedure. Dr was very upfront about what I can achieve (and not achieve) with the procedure. The "liquid" Dr Gordon used: Juvederm, Voluma that restored my facial volume and Botox which got rid of my fine lines, wrinkles. I gave the Dr office permission to upload my before/after photos. Check out the gallery, you will see me there. 2 thumbs up Dr Gordon!"- J. / RealSelf / Jul 20, 2015
"Beautiful eyes & lips - I had my under eyes filled with Restylane to fill up the hollowness. In addition, Dr. Gordon used Juvederm on my lips to add fullness to it. I like my results very much. My eyes and lips look natural, but much better than before. Dr. Gordon has a great eye in details and also the overall balance of the facial anatomy. His office is modern and comfortable, his staff is also very polite. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Gordon."- Anonymous / UCompareHealthcare / Oct 16, 2015

Juvéderm During/After The Procedure
After discussing the patient’s medical history, concerns, and goals for the procedure in the initial consultation, Dr. Gordon will develop the patient’s unique treatment plan. Dr. Gordon completes most Juvéderm treatments in about 15 minutes in his well-equipped minor procedures room. Juvéderm is often used to treat smile lines, vertical lip lines, and other moderate to severe wrinkles on the face.
Juvéderm Expected Cost
Patients should expect to have side effects, like redness and swelling for the first 3 – 5 days after the treatment. Dr. Gordon advises patients to avoid strenuous activities for the first week and to return for a follow up appointment in 1 – 2 weeks so he can check the patient’s recovery and results.
A Juvéderm treatment can cost between $750 and $1,400, depending on the amount of Juvéderm used during the session. Dr. Gordon will be able to give a better estimate of costs after hearing the patient’s concerns and examining their face during the initial consultation.

Juvéderm treatments create natural looking results that can last up to 1 year. Most patients schedule touch-up injections to maintain their results. Touch-up treatments tend to use fewer syringes than the original treatment, but this varies in each patient.
Juvéderm XC is most effective in improving the appearance of nasolabial folds, the lines that run from the bottom of the nose to the corner of the mouth on both sides of the face.
Original Vs. XC?
Unlike the original Juvéderm injectable gel, Juvéderm XC is infused with lidocaine to make its injection more comfortable.
