Hyaluronic acid fillers have the effect of filling-in the wrinkles and subtly defining facial appearance.
As the years go by and maturity is reached, a man gains experience and self-confidence, but loses only one thing: youthful look. It is then very common that our appearance simply does not match our inner energy. Nor the requirements set before us by modern life.
The skin starts losing its hyaluronic acid after the age of 30, and then its collagen, elastin and subcutaneous grease as well. Besides that, the force of gravity and the use of the mimic muscles lead to the occurrence of mimic wrinkles, loss of volume – so the skin becomes tired and without glow.

Dermal hyaluronic fillers contain hyaluronic acid whose molecular structure is equal to the one created by our body – it is a natural amino acid, an integral part of our cells and intercellular space; it plays an important role in water balance and healing because it enables good hydration.
Therefore, by injecting hyaluronic fillers in the skin, accumulation of water is increased, and skin returns its freshness and youthful look.

How do the fillers work?

Hyaluronic fillers gently alleviate the signs of aging or subtly improve what nature has given to us – they make the face more beautiful in three key ways:
Revitalize – reduce, smooth out wrinkles; by injecting them into the skin below the wrinkle, they suppress the skin upwards, making it smooth and returning freshness.
Lift – they give skin back its lost volume and elasticity, which gives the effect of lifting and toning on cheeks and chin.
Define – subtly reshape and redefine lips and facial contour of the face (cheekbones, chin).

Here in Polyclinic Lege Artis we use dermal fillers of highest quality, one of them being Juvederm – properties of their line in Vycross technology are simply magical, and provide even more long-term and completely natural results.

Description of the procedure

The procedure takes about 30 minutes; it is minimally invasive, almost completely painless.
Recovery time is short – it is possible to continue with regular activities the day after the procedure.
Results after first application last for 12-18 months, depending on the structure of the skin and thickness of the preparation.
With regular use of the fillers, periods between applications are prolonged, and the effect is more beautiful and more effective, which nowadays places fillers in regular anti-age care.
Injection of hyaluronic dermal fillers accomplishes not only filling in the wrinkles and restoration of the lost volume, but skin hydration as well due to retraction of water molecules; it has been proven that it also leads to regeneration of collagen as well as production of new collagen.
The most important thing to point out is that hyaluronic fillers enable retention of the natural appearance of the face; adding hyaluronic acid actually suits the skin.
It can be used for nasolabial wrinkles, cheekbones, cheeks, wrinkles around the eyes, on the forehead, neck, as well as for lip augmentation and correction of chin contours.


Alongside genetics, wrinkle creation is stimulated by the way of life – smoking, irregular sleep, daily stress, exposure to atmospheric and climatic influences…
Gradual physiological aging of the tissue starts at the age of 25, which it is the right time to add hyaluron in small amounts in order to prevent the occurrence of wrinkles.
Midlife, or a so-called ‘golden age’ is time when the signs of aging become evident, and they are least welcomed – we are self-confident and successful – and we want to keep it so.
And, of course – crossing of the 40s into the 50s and the beginning of 60s: loss of fat and skin loosening due to gravity can turn wrinkles into creases. We feel well; however, we need a bit of motivation because we still want to be attractive and fresh.


Before the treatment itself, the doctor performs detailed consultation with the client in order to clearly grasp client’s wishes and demands; depending on the state and possibilities, the plan of treatment that complies with client’s demands is selected.
The preparation itself includes removing make-up and application of anesthetic cream, if necessary; perhaps even the use of local anesthesia.

Course of the procedure

he treatment is ambulatory and it takes 20-30 minutes.
We have a choice of face fillers – each specific formula of the smooth gel solves specific problems.
Gel is injected below the skin by the doctor, using an extremely thin, gentle needle. Gel fills in the lines and wrinkles and adds a subtle volume. Hyaluronic acid inside the gel retains moisture.
Juvederm preparations contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic that makes the treatment more pleasant.
Depending on the treatment and the product, results can be visible up to 18 months.


Redness usually disappears after a couple of hours, while swelling and hematoma usually disappear in a couple of days. After 2 weeks, the preparation redistributes itself and shows its real effect. You can return to your daily activities the next day.

Dermal fillers

As the years go by, we become more experienced and self-confident, but we lose only one thing: youthfool look of our skin. It is then very common that our appearance simply does not match our inner energy. Juvederm is a line of facial dermal fillers that gently alleviate signs of aging or subtly improve what the nature has given to you. Juvederm line has formulas for each part of the face and it can optimally emphasize your best contours and give you a natural look.

Juvederm was produced by Allergan, a company that takes care of health and one of the first ones that started the development of esthetic medical treatments, more than 35 years ago. Their line of Juvederm dermal fillers was produced using advanced technologies. Those treatments have a good safety profile and offer a natural look and long-term effect. Allergan also produced famous Botulinum toxin Cosmetic, known in Europe as Vistabel.

Juvederm are mild, rejuvenating injecting dermal fillers that can be used for various needs, and especially for filling in lines and wrinkles. They can also be used for restoration of volume in cheeks and chin, and also for the improvement of the appearance of lips.

Rejuvenating treatments with Juvederm dermal fillers are quick, simple, pleasant and non-surgical. The treatment restores and improves facial characteristics in a way that painless injections are placed into strategic spots below the skin. Juvederm gives face volume and shapes it, while keeping a natural, symmetric and balanced appearance.

Unique system of Juvederm dermal fillers contains hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar found in human body. In combination with water in your skin, it immediately smoothes lines and wrinkles, improves the appearance of lips and restores lost volume in cheeks and jaw. Likewise, hyaluronic acid filler can naturally stimulate production of collagen in the skin.

Juvederm dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid which is naturally found in a human body and it retains water under the skin in order to smooth the lines and restore lost volume and keep the skin hydrated. Like a sponge, its primary function is to bind and absorb water, which gives face a look of fullness. Hyaluronic acid can absorb liquid in volume 1000 times greater than its own and thereby it works as an excellent ‘sponge’ under your skin. Hyaluronic acid can be regarded as the inner body moisturizer. Skin ages, and with exposure to environmental pollution and ultraviolet rays, skin cells lose their ability to produce hyaluronic acid. That is the reason why skin starts losing volume, which often leads to occurrence of wrinkles and creases on the face.

Juvederm dermal fillers rejuvenate the face by replacing lost hyaluronic acid, smoothing the lines, restoring lost facial volume and keeping the skin hydrated. Best of all is that the results are immediate, appearance is natural and it can last up to 18 months, without recovery time necessary.

How are dermal fillers used?

Skin rejuvenation using Juvederm dermal fillers is quick and simple. With this procedure, you will immediately look and feel refreshed. The treatment is done by a doctor by injecting a filler into strategic spots in order to improve individual facial appearance.

Your face will regain its volume and shape, while keeping natural, symmetric and balanced look. Whether you are interested in improving your facial appearance, or maybe refreshing and rejuvenating your looks, Juvederm fillers can be used for:

  • Smoothing laugh lines
  • Restoring lost volume
  • Emphasis of lips
  • Shaping of the jaw line

After the treatment, emphasis of the lines will reduce, your lips will be fuller and nicely shaped, and cheeks voluminous. You will look naturally refreshed so everybody will notice, but nobody will know how!


This simple treatment can be used for different purposes, depending on what you want to achieve. It can serve as wrinkle filler, reducing the visibility of wrinkles and creases. It can be used to restore volume in the cheeks and chin and to improve the appearance of lips and cheeks.

Refreshment and rejuvenation

Juvederm momentarily refreshes and rejuvenates your appearance in a way that it smoothes the unwanted lines, restores natural facial appearance and replaces lost volume in the cheeks. Juvederm dermal fillers are injected below the wrinkles and creases in order to fill in the sag. Lines that are the best for the Juvederm treatment are so-called static lines that are visible when the face is not moving (such as laugh lines). Most commonly, areas of laugh lines and nasolabial crease are treated, as well as mouth line and marionette line, smoking lines or vertical mouth line, cheeks and chin.


Juvederm injections can be used as fillers for a face which requires improvement of some characteristics, like lips and cheeks. By unnoticeable and strategic injection, Juvederm hyaluronic fillers shape the lips and cheeks and keep your look symmetric, natural and balanced at the same time.
