You stay in shape, take care of yourself, and live a full life. You certainly feel young, but that feeling isn’t reflected when you look in the mirror. What can you do? The answer can be found at Silverado Medical & Aesthetic Clinic in Calgary AB. Dr. Pepple and her team have a variety of treatments to make you look younger. One of the most popular is anti-aging with Juvéderm injections.


Skin and underlying structures change over time. There is not a simple, singular cause of facial aging. In truth, dozens of changes take place over the years, many of which contribute to volume loss. Skin becomes drier, the fatty layer below it becomes thinner, and collagen production slows.

As you might expect, this decrease in tissue volume can lead to thinner lips, sunken cheeks, and other changes in facial contours. Skin does not shrink to accommodate your thinner features. In fact, just the opposite occurs, because aging skin loses elasticity. The result is sagging, wrinkles, and folds of excess skin.

While most men and women want to correct the signs of volume loss, many of them don’t want to go under the knife. Dermal fillers provide an effective, non-surgical solution with no permanent changes, and very little downtime. They work by replacing facial volume, and restoring your youthful features, with just a few comfortable injections.


Dr. Pepple is committed to providing quality solutions, which is why she chooses Juvéderm. Juvéderm is a premier line of dermal fillers produced by Allergan, the same company that makes Botox.

There are several different Juvéderm formulas, designed to address various areas of the face. Thinner formulas are ideal for fine lines and superficial injections, adding a little volume exactly where it is needed without creating an overdone appearance. Thicker, more resilient formulas are used in areas such as the cheeks where a greater amount of volume is needed, because they are resilient enough to stay in place and hold their shape. Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Pepple may recommend one or several Juvéderm products.


  • Replace tissue volume
  • Improve facial contours and correct symmetry
  • Plump up thin lips
  • Fill in folds, lines, and wrinkles
  • Add volume in other areas, including hand rejuvenation


You’ve probably heard the term “liquid facelift.” It does not refer to a specific product or procedure. Instead, it is a common name given to a combination of anti-aging injectables. Typically, this includes a neuromodulator (botox), along with one or more dermal filler products.

The popularity of this combination treatment can be attributed to its ability to address multiple types of wrinkles and lines for comprehensive correction. Neuromodulators work by softening rigid muscles. Therefore, they cannot correct aging related to volume loss. On the other hand, dermal fillers add volume, but they cannot soften muscles. Therefore, the two procedures are often considered the dynamic duo of antiaging.


The Juvéderm procedure is quick and convenient, with minimal discomfort. Cosmetic injectables are delivered using a very fine needle, and the superficial depth makes them more comfortable than most “shots.” Additionally, Juvéderm XC formulas include lidocaine, so the product numbs as it is injected.

Increased volume will be noticeable immediately after Juvéderm injections. The appearance of the treated area will continue improving for a few days to a couple of weeks as swelling and redness subside, revealing the full, beautiful, natural looking results. Depending on the specific Juvéderm formula used, the results can last from several months to more than a year. It can be maintained with touch up injections as needed.
