A Natural Quality
Patients seeking a treatment to reduce wrinkles and hollows on the face tend to find results they are quite happy with in Juvederm®. Naperville’s Dr. John Bull, serving Western Chicago and beyond, offers the complete line of injectable Juvederm® fillers, each one designed to address specific effects of age-related volume loss, from creases around the mouth to flattened “apples” of the cheeks to lips that have thinned over time. Administering Juvederm® involves special training, experience, and skill. The nonsurgical treatment is safe, well-studied, and FDA approved for a range of uses, but choosing a qualified injector is still a crucial part of the process. Dr. John Bull and the injectors on his team at the center work with precision to smooth skin and create contours that have a natural quality, as opposed to a “done” or overfilled look that draws unwanted attention.
Although each member of the Juvederm® family has a different focus, they all work to address cosmetic changes that develop as faces lose valuable elements over time: collagen, hyaluronic acid, healthy fat, and even bone density. Juvederm® fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural molecule found all throughout the human body. Known as HA, this molecule plays many roles, from cushioning to lubricating. Its ability to bind to water allows it to keep the skin hydrated, smooth, full, and pliable. As HA levels drop in the skin, along with reductions in structure-providing collagen, the surface can develop creases and lines. This volume loss also leads to thinning lips and mid-face deflation, with hollows forming and tissue sagging so that jowls droop on a once-defined jawline. Adding an HA-based gel back into key areas of the face can reverse these changes. The restored volume from the Juvederm® filler itself, as well as the water molecules it attracts, pushes the loose skin outward to create a smoother surface, fuller pout, rounder contours, and more obvious structural support.
Feel Significantly More Natural
The John Bull Center offers five types of fillers in the Juvederm® line: Ultra XC, Ultra Plus XC, Voluma™ XC, Vollure™ XC, and Volbella™ XC. The “XC” indicates that the injectable contains a small amount of a local anesthetic known as lidocaine, in addition to the hyaluronic acid-based gel, in order to make the injection process more comfortable.
The Juvederm® fillers are all made with VYCROSS™ technology, which combines low- and high-molecular weight hyaluronic acid to create robust chains of molecules. That means the John Bull Center injectors can use less of the product while still achieving beautiful results. Because less product is used, patients experience less downtime, swelling, and discomfort than is normally associated with similar injectable treatments. This also makes the results of a Juvederm® session look and feel significantly more natural.
If you have deep laugh lines, want fuller lips, and have a noticeable loss of facial volume, Juvederm® XC is ideal for restoring volume and smoothing away moderate to severe facial wrinkles, including smile lines (parenthesis) and nasolabial folds. This FDA-approved treatment can also be used to diminish other deep facial lines and to enhance lip volume.
In addition to the visible lines and wrinkles that develop around the eyes, nose, and mouth, the reduction in collagen and elastin in the skin can also result in volume loss in the cheeks. Juvederm® Voluma treatments can restore the apples of your cheeks without surgery or downtime. In addition to cheek enhancement, Juvederm Voluma® is also now FDA-approved for chin augmentation to create a more distinct profile or smooth out dimpling.
Juvéderm Vollure™ reduces static wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds that form from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Historically, these lines have been among the most difficult to treat, since they deepen over time. Vollure’s specific ability to attract and increase moisture plumps and smooths this area, yielding beautiful, long-lasting improvement.
Many people are dissatisfied with the shape and volume of their lips or are preoccupied with small wrinkles near their mouths. Juvederm® Volbella™ is an ideal injectable for boosting lip volume, smoothing vertical creases and marionette lines, and improving overall facial symmetry.

Incredibly Comfortable Sessions
Juvederm® facial rejuvenation treatments at the John Bull Center are incredibly comfortable sessions. Your injector will begin with a comprehensive consultation in order to develop a customized treatment plan to best address your aesthetic desires.
When it comes to the Juvederm® injections themselves, many patients find that they are virtually painless. For those who want to ensure their comfort, we may apply an additional local anesthetic to further minimize sensation at the injection site. We also offer the NUEVIBE™ device, designed to vibrate against the skin and make injection sessions a “near painless” experience. NUEVIBE™ works by distracting your brain so that it pays attention to the vibrating sensation instead of the feel of the needle. The treatment session will take only minutes, with the exact length determined by how many areas are being injected.
The Right Fit For You
Juvederm® is an ideal treatment option for any patient who wants to restore youthful facial contours and reduce visible signs of aging. Candidates for the injectable should be in good health, free from active skin infections in the treatment area, and understanding of what a nonsurgical treatment like Juvederm® can and can’t do.
You will be able to see the volume added during a Juvederm® treatment session as soon as you look into a mirror, though, as with all injectable treatments, it can result in slight bruising, swelling, and redness at the treatment site. These effects typically subside within a day or so. Following an injection session, patients should avoid excessive exposure to the sun—as well as time in saunas or steam rooms—for a week after treatment to avoid more bruising. There are typically no complications in patients who qualify for a Juvederm® treatment, and men and women who choose this facial rejuvenation option almost always return to normal activities right away. Our medical team will discuss all additional safety information with you prior to your appointment. Results can be expected to last for six months to two years, depending on which member of the Juvederm® family is used and how it is injected.
While the static wrinkles, facial hollows, and thin lips that develop due to volume loss respond well to fillers like Juvederm®, other wrinkles—those caused by muscle action—require a different approach. Injectable neuromodulators relax the muscles, leading to a rested, smoother-looking face. Options include BOTOX®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau™. The effects of Juvederm® are long-lasting, but surgical procedures are a better choice for anyone who wants more dramatic results that can take up to a decade off of an aging face. Consider a facelift, brow lift, or eyelid lift to get a more youthful and alert look that lasts.
