“The art of injectable fillers is knowing how a specific filler will interact with the aesthetic balance of the entire face.”

Juvederm illustration The JUVÉDERM collection of dermal fillers, available in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area at Facial Plastic Surgery in Edina, MN, includes a wide range of options formulated for specific facial aesthetics. Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Edward Szachowicz customizes his choice of fillers to each person’s face and the specific area he is treating. Using the JUVÉDERM collection of dermal fillers, he can meet your individual facial rejuvenation needs with results that look natural.

About the JUVÉDERM Collection

All of the JUVÉDERM dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a material naturally found in our skin, joints, and even our eyes. As we age, we have less hyaluronic acid in the skin and tissues of the face. Gel dermal fillers are so popular with Twin Cities residents because these products can reverse the signs of facial aging by replacing hyaluronic acid. The JUVÉDERM collection of fillers has been designed for the following areas:

  • Cheeks
  • Lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth such as nasolabial folds (smile lines, parentheses)
  • Lips

Choose an Artist for Your Filler Treatments

During your consultation with Dr. Szachowicz,

  • you can share your particular concerns and,
  • working with your input, Dr. Szachowicz will develop your customized dermal filler treatment plan,
  • so that you can optimize the choice of your dermal fillers for your best results.

While the choice of filler is important, the professional behind the filler is key to getting your best result. Dr. Szachowicz is an artist when it comes to the aesthetic placement of the dermal fillers. He has attended mastery classes defining the contours of the cheek quadrants, the dimensions and proportions of the lips, and the balance and proportions of the face. As a facial plastic surgeon, he not only accurately places dermal fillers, but also rejuvenates the face with cosmetic surgery.

JUVÉDERM Ultra is a soft, water-clear gel containing hyaluronic acid—a remarkable substance that attracts and holds onto water. In the body, hyaluronic acid is abundant in the skin when younger, and diminishes with age, which is very apparent in the lips and around the mouth. JUVÉDERM Ultra is a smooth and soft gel material which is ideal for sculpting the:

  • Lips
  • Soft contours of the face

JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus is a thicker, more robust product used to treat:

  • Deeper nasolabial folds (smile lines)
  • Marionette lines extending from the corners of the mouth to the chin
  • Sunken or flat cheeks


JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is a nonsurgical treatment option for anyone with age-related volume loss in the cheek area (mid-face). The hyaluronic acid gel in VOLUMA is made with a unique VycrossTM technology that contributes to the filler’s “lift capacity” and helps results last up to 2 years.

“Natural volume is the key to a youthful face. Contour is truly the defining dimension.”

Quadrants of the Cheek

VOLUMA – Cheek Quadrants The best way to understand how VOLUMA may benefit you is to do a mapping of the four quadrants of your cheek. The “Golden Zone” over the outside cheek region (Quadrants 1 & 2) should be fully corrected to give your cheek bones the best contour. Then the cheek volume correction can be extended across the cheek toward the nose. It is not necessary to overcorrect with VOLUMA.

As the face ages, there is a loss of structure and volume “below the surface.” Beginning around age 30, the natural fat pads of the cheek, which support and enhance the facial contours, begin to deflate and droop. At the same time, bone loss occurs in the entire face (osteoporosis of the cheeks and jaw), which also decreases support of the facial tissues.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is a three-dimensional filler for the cheek area. Its more robust structure is designed for deeper injection overlying the bony facial structures, which instantly recreates the youthful volume. Structural changes are more fundamental in creating a youthful look and comprise a more comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation.


JUVÉDERM VOLLURE is a smooth, natural, and long-lasting gel filler for the parentheses or smile lines. Patient feedback shows that the optimal results can be achieved when facial volume is restored with a combination of dermal fillers, achieving a more a natural facial balance.


JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA has been a top seller since its launch, as the most subtle lip filler available. VOLBELLA is the best gel filler to the lip region for people who feel that even the slightest over-correction would be too much. This filler gently inflates the lip and softens lip lines with the least addition of volume.

Risks of JUVÉDERM Dermal Filler Injections

Infrequent complications include: local injection-site reactions such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching can be seen. Very rarely, JUVÉDERM can be injected into a blood vessel causing more widespread effects such as skin loss or vision changes. The actual duration of the volume correction with JUVÉDERM products vary. With all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
