At Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery, we offer a number of nonsurgical options for facial rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction. Juvéderm is a collection of FDA-approved dermal fillers that board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Nana Mizuguchi recommends to treat a number of different skin issues that come with aging. The Juvéderm injectables can fill in wrinkles, depressions, and lines, and also add volume back into thin skin of the cheeks and lips for a more youthful appearance. We can meet with you at our Louisville, KY practice to assess your needs and determine which injectable will best help you reach your goals. Juvéderm injections can be a great alternative to invasive surgical procedures. We offer the following options:
Juvéderm XC: A powerhouse injectable for smoothing out wrinkles and lines around the mouth and nose. Have noticeable improvement to your skin for up to one year.
Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC: Works to both smooth out wrinkles and folds in the skin as well as add volume to the facial tissues.
Juvéderm Volbella XC: Used to add volume and augment the lips nonsurgically. Injections of Volbella can also smooth out the wrinkles around the mouth.
Juvéderm Vollure: Injected into the facial skin to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles around areas such as the nasolabial folds.
The best candidates for Juvéderm:
- Have moderate to deep lines between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds)
- Have thin lips and desire plumper lips
- Have age-related volume loss in cheeks
- Desire long-term results
- Desire natural-looking results

"Dr. Mizuguchi and his staff are wonderful. In July of 2019 I had my consultation appointment. The moment my husband and I walked in, I knew I was in good hands. Kristy and Dr. Mizuguchi answered all of my questions and answered questions I hadn’t even thought of yet. Fast forward to October 2019. I had breast augmentation surgery. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. After breast feeding 3 little ones throughout the past 6 years, it was nice to have a small ‘mom makeo...ver’ to feel beautiful again. He even called later the night of surgery to check on me and see how things were going. I unfortunately had an allergic reaction to either the pain meds or antibiotic but him and his staff were on top of it and had it taken care of right away. Everything has been a 5 star from day one of calling their practice. I highly recommend Dr. Mizuguchi and his staff!"- C.K. / Facebook / Jan 04, 2020
"Dr. Mizuguchi and his entire staff are truly amazing. They all give off positive vibes & really care about the experiences they provide. I am almost 3 weeks post op (breast augmentation). They’ve made me feel at ease with decisions, asking questions, and the overall care they provide. I am beyond happy with my choice in Dr Mizuguchi, and would absolutely recommend him to anyone. He most definitely exceeded my expectations, all while making the entire process so smooth! I honestly couldn’t be any happier with my results and feel so much better about myself!!!"- C.W. / Facebook / Dec 11, 2019
"OMG... I never thought I would be someone who needed this procedure. - After my 3rd and 4th babies were delivered I realized my body would never be the same. I had twins. It was rough on my body. Over the last 18 years, I tried everything to gain core strength. Nothing worked and now I realize why. I had a very large open area in my upper abd. Muscles. I remember taking up pilates and yoga thinking it would help. Both made it even worse. I also did triathlons . I understand the reason I was unable to run after I swam and biked.I understand my body mechanics better. Wow, I wish I had done this years ago. I really did not want to resort to surgery. If others go through the same as me I hope they find a good surgeon . Some of my friends understand what I have been through and some think I I did it for looks. Looking good is a benefit from this surgery. But my core strength was more important.I had started having back injuries that kept getting worse. The more I hurt my back the less I could do physically. It was getting harder to go for walks. Thank you to the staff and doctor for encouraging me to go forward with this procedure. I hope other women who have the same issues seek good surgeons. Having babies is hard on our bodies . I had twins and it was even harder. Pros I finally have answers to my abd. Issues. Cons it is still a surgery."- S. / RealSelf / Dec 10, 2019
"I can’t say enough about Dr. Mizuguchi and everyone in his office. They are friendly and helpful and guide you through your surgery from start to finish. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results of my breast reduction and lift. He did an amazing job and my only regret is that I didn’t do the surgery 10 years ago. He is professional and genuinely a great person, taking the time to put his patient at ease. I would highly recommend a consultation with Dr. Mizuguchi if you are considering having anything done for yourself. My results are wonderful!!"- K.F. / Healthgrades / Dec 09, 2019
What to Expect
Beforehand, our surgeon will determine the appropriate formula, injection site(s), and the correct dosage to begin this in-office treatment. Since Juvéderm already has a numbing agent (lidocaine) included, additional numbing usually isn’t needed. The filler will be delivered through a fine needle to the lips, cheeks, and/or wrinkles and lines around the nose and mouth. You will feel a small prick and a tingling sensation from the injection. The treatment typically lasts 30 – 45 minutes.
After the injection, there might be slight redness in the treated area. There could also be mild swelling, but it should go away rather quickly. Since there’s no downtime associated with Juvéderm, you can return to your normal activities immediately. The face will be dramatically improved right after the treatment, and you should expect reliable results for up to one year.
