Dr. Lamoureux’s Technique

Dr. Lamoureux has extensive experience injecting facial fillers and lip fillers in the Worcester, MA area to help enhance your appearance and correct volume loss that can occur as a normal part of aging. Her focus with cosmetic injections is to maintain your natural beauty through subtle enhancement of your anatomy. She injects hyaluronic acid-based products such as Juvéderm to help soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and into areas where volume has been lost. Her goal is to keep you looking like yourself—only better.

What Can Juvéderm Do?

  • Restore volume loss to the mid-face
  • Soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • Improve the appearance of vertical lip lines 
  • Address nasolabial folds and marionette lines
  • Add definition and volume to a weak or recessed chin
  • Provide plumpness, structure, and hydration for fuller lips

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Anyone who is interested in beauty and anti-aging should be aware of the importance of hyaluronic acid. This powerful component of our skin has many uses.

It retains moisture; helps to repair tissue; holds collagen and elastin together, and protects the skin against microorganisms.

Although everyone has hyaluronic acid in their body naturally, it begins to dissipate more and more as we get older—starting to go as early as our late teens. That’s why we begin to lose that youthful plumpness, and that’s why facial fillers are so effective. When used as cosmetic injections, facial fillers in Shrewsbury replace lost hyaluronic acid, giving you refreshed, youthful, radiant skin.

Juvéderm Products 

The Juvéderm brand includes a variety of different products in order to better personalize your treatments. These products are made with different strengths, and are developed to address specific areas to better achieve your personal cosmetic goals. 

Juvéderm Ultra  

A classic for lip fillers, this product was created specifically to provide fullness to dull lips in a natural-looking way. Whether you’ve noticed that your lips have become more thin with age or you’ve simply never had full lips, Juvéderm Ultra XC can instantly achieve plumper, more attractive lips that last up to one year.

Juvéderm Ultra Plus 

One of the main abilities of facial fillers is improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and this is what Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC is best for. Using a proprietary cross-linked formulation, this product is more robust than many other facial fillers and is perfect for deeper injection. Results of Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC last up to one year.

Juvéderm Voluma

One of the most common signs of aging is hollowed-out or sunken areas, most commonly the temples and cheeks. This product is the gold standard for adding youthful volume and lift to these areas, which can make you look years younger. Results with Juvéderm Voluma are long-lasting—up to two years. 

Juvéderm Volbella 

When it comes to lip fillers, Volbella is one of the very best. Designed to achieve your desired results in a subtle way, Volbella won’t make your lips look over-filled or too big—they will look just right. This product is also excellent for smoothing lines around the mouth and providing definition to the borders of the lips. Results last up to one year.

Juvéderm Vollure

An ideal treatment for the lower part of the face, Juvéderm Vollure was designed to achieve smooth, natural-looking contours and restore facial volume, particularly for the nasolabial folds and marionette lines at the nose and mouth. It is also a great choice for treating aesthetic concerns of the cheeks. Results can last up to 18 months.

What to Expect

During a Juvéderm Treatment

Photos of you will be taken at each visit to track your progress. Before your cosmetic injections in Shrewsbury begin, your skin will be cleansed and numbed if necessary. Juvéderm also contains lidocaine (a numbing agent), which will help with discomfort during the injections.

Dr. Lamoureux will administer the cosmetic injections using her gentlest touch, providing great care throughout the process. She utilizes her artistic eye and her ability to know exactly where to inject to create a more youthful and balanced appearance for you.

She is very mindful to never over-fill, using a conservative yet effective amount of facial and/or lip filler. Juvéderm treatments are quick and convenient, only taking approximately 20 minutes. 

Recovery and Results

Although there is no significant downtime after a Juvéderm treatment, there are some restrictions. We recommend avoiding sunlight, heat, alcohol, flying, and exercise for 48 hours. 

You may also see some side effects. These can include redness, firmness, tenderness, swelling, bruising, and lumpiness where the cosmetic injections were administered, but all of these side effects will likely subside within a week. 

Juvéderm may take a few weeks to soften and settle nicely into the skin. The majority of patients see final results at two weeks, at which time Dr. Lamoureux will have a follow-up visit with you to review your progress. This is when plans for your next steps will be made.
