Sculpting More Beautiful Features Without Surgery
JUVÉDERM® is a family of dermal filler products that:
- Add fullness to facial features that may have lost volume over time
- Reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles with targeted treatment
- Emphasize features such as the lips and cheeks for a more noticeable and attractive appearance
Along with restoring or increasing volume, JUVÉDERM® products are made from a modified form of hyaluronic acid. This substance, found naturally in the body, promotes softer and more youthful skin. Treatment with JUVÉDERM® is non-invasive, and its results are immediate, temporary, and effective. This provides Vancouver patients with an excellent option for aesthetic improvement without the commitment of surgery.

Visiting Our Medical Spa
Heights Laser Centre prioritizes patient comfort, safety, and satisfaction. You can have confidence in the quality of your experience and your care from your initial consultation to your final result.
During your first appointment, Dr. Jaffer will take the time to learn about your cosmetic concerns. Some Vancouver patients have specific facial features that they want to treat. Others have the general goal of refreshing their appearance. By developing a clear and thorough understanding of your aesthetic vision, Dr. Jaffer will be able to tailor your treatment to your needs.
As part of your visit, Dr. Jaffer will examine your facial features, note signs of aging and volume loss, and assess the elasticity of your skin. JUVÉDERM® is one of several families of dermal filler products that he uses for Vancouver patients. A careful evaluation will help him determine if JUVÉDERM® is the right solution for your needs, where you might require filler, and how much of the product to use.
Depending on your goals, you may benefit from one or several JUVÉDERM® products. Dr. Jaffer prefers VYCROSS®-based injectables, which include JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA®, VOLUMA®, and VOLIFT®. These advanced solutions offer a long duration and smooth outcome.
Treatment with JUVÉDERM®
JUVÉDERM® injections usually take no more than 60 minutes, and you should be able to return to normal activities immediately afterward. Dr. Jaffer frequently provides the following treatments to Vancouver patients:
Love Your Lips™ mini-lip augmentation. Add fullness to your lips for a natural-looking and subtle enhancement of your lips. Love Your Lips™ is exclusively available at Heights Laser Centre.
Cheek and jawline rejuvenation. Dr. Jaffer lifts the cheeks to a more youthful position, reduces the appearance of tear troughs below the eyes, softens transition points, and strengthens the jawline.
Wrinkle treatment. Facial lines and wrinkles can cause you to look sad, tired, or older than you feel. Dr. Jaffer can use JUVÉDERM® to treat deep nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and other wrinkles to restore your features.
What People Really Want to Know about JUVÉDERM®
When will I notice a difference?
You should see an immediate improvement. Vancouver patients often come to Heights Laser Centre for treatment before a big event to refresh their appearance.
Is treatment with JUVÉDERM® painful?
Most patients find the experience very manageable. The soft tissue filler includes an anesthetic, which helps to desensitize the treatment area. Also, Dr. Jaffer will use ice and/or a topical numbing agent to promote your comfort during your visit.
How long will the results last?
The results that you see with JUVÉDERM® should last for about one year. Some of our Vancouver patients choose to have a touch-up treatment after six months. Others experience longer-lasting effects and do not need retreatment for 18 months.
Should I be aware of any restrictions?
Dr. Jaffer will review pre-treatment guidelines during your consultation. Typically, he recommends avoiding medications and foods that have an anti-inflammatory effect for one week. These include aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, ginger, garlic, ginseng, and gingko biloba.
Can I expect bruising after treatment?
You may experience mild bruising after JUVÉDERM®. Dr. Jaffer can provide you with an arnica supplement to help reduce this problem.
What type of result can I expect?
Our patients tend to be very satisfied with the improvement that they get from JUVÉDERM®. Treatment offers an immediate, attractive, and natural-looking outcome. Through care with Dr. Jaffer, you can expect smoother skin, fuller features, and an overall more youthful look.
