What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a trusted brand of derma fillers that contains five different formulations, each of which is made of a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid in a crystal clear gel form. Each of these fillers is created with different hyaluronic acid particle sizes so that they can effectively treat the signs of aging and enhance the features in different areas of the face.
All About Hyaluronic Acid
Whether you’re a skincare junkie or you just take good care of your skin and have developed a skincare routine, you probably have some form of topical hyaluronic acid in your skincare collection. Many professional-grade skincare lines have developed hyaluronic acid products that effectively hydrate the skin and temporarily plump it so that it looks more youthful. The downside of these products is that they need to be reapplied for continuous results.
Hyaluronic Acid in the Body
Hyaluronic acid is a clear substance produced by the body to keep tissues hydrated. It holds onto moisture in the body and is mostly found in the skin, the eyes, and the connective tissues. As the aging process occurs, the body produces less of this substance, and the skin can begin to develop different signs of aging like lines and wrinkles as a result. You can help offset this by eating certain foods to help boost hyaluronic acid production in the body.
Hyaluronic Acid in Injectables
All of the different fillers that make up the Juvederm collection qualify as a hyaluronic-acid based dermal fillers. They are composed of crystal clear gel that contains a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid that closely matches that which the body produces. Once these dermal fillers are injected into the skin, they provide long-lasting results since it takes the body a long time to fully metabolize their ingredients.
Topical Products vs. Injectables
Hyaluronic acid absorbs into the skin very quickly, so topical products are only effective temporarily. You need to keep applying such topicals to continue to benefit from their hydrating effects. The difference between the ways that these products work and the ways that hyaluronic-acid based injectables work is that topical forms hydrate the skin from the outside in, while injections add volume and plump up the skin from the inside out.
The Different Treatment Areas
There are five different Juvederm fillers that treat different areas. There is a formulation that is specifically created to meet different needs in different areas of the face. This collection of fillers is FDA-approved to add volume to the cheeks, smooth lines and wrinkles that form as a result of volume loss, enhance the profile by improving the appearance of the chin, augment and enhance the lips, and smooth vertical lip wrinkles that form from aging.
Voluma XC is designed to restore volume to the cheeks. Sagging and drooping are a common result of volume loss in the cheek area, also known as age-related mid-face volume loss. This formulation lifts, defines, and contours the cheeks so that you look more youthful. Additionally, it has recently been FDA-approved for use in the chin and profile region.
It can improve the appearance of the profile when injected deep into the chin to create a more aesthetically pleasing look. It provides long-lasting results as it lasts up to two years when injected into the cheeks and up to one year when injected into the chin.
Vollure XC corrects moderate to severe lines, wrinkles, and facial folds that develop as a result of volume loss in the face. It treats parenthesis lines around the mouth, smile lines, and can also help improve the appearance of nasolabial folds, which run along the sides of the mouth. This formulation provides long-lasting results for up to 18 months.
The XC formulation also treats moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, including smile lines. It adds volume below the surface of the skin to plump the area and creates a smoother-looking appearance. With optimal treatment, this formulation can last up to one year.
The Ultra XC formulation treats both the lips and facial folds. When injected into the lips, it will transform thin lips into full lips. Those who have developed thinner lips due to the aging process or just naturally have thin lips will benefit from this dermal filler. When injected into the face, it can also smooth moderate to severe facial folds, including parenthesis lines, nasolabial folds, and smile lines. With optimal treatment, this dermal filler will last for one year.
Volbella also treats the lips, as well as the area around the mouth that can develop wrinkles due to aging. When injected around the mouth, it can smooth out and erase lipstick lines, which are technically known as perioral lines that form as a result of aging. When injected into the lips, this formulation can augment them and make them fuller. With optimal treatment, this formulation provides results that last up to one year.
The Treatment Process
Your treatment will begin well before your actual appointment. Before receiving injections, you will undergo a consultation with one of our injectors who will review your health history to make sure that this is a safe choice for you, analyze your problem areas, explain everything that is involved in the treatment, and determine if you are a candidate. If you are a candidate, you will receive a personalized treatment plan that will give you the best results.
After your consultation, you will set up an injection appointment. At the beginning of this appointment, your injector will clean the areas on your skin before administering the injections. Then, they will administer the injections in the areas that were decided on during your initial consultation. If you’re nervous about needles you don’t need to be. The injections will be administered with an ultra-fine needle, which means it will most likely be the thinnest needle you’ve seen.
What Injections Actually Feel Like
One of the benefits of choosing this particular brand of fillers is that one of the main ingredients in every formulation is lidocaine. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic that creates comfort by numbing the treatment area. The inclusion of lidocaine in all of these fillers, combined with the administration of the injections with a very thin needle, creates the most comfortable experience imaginable. If needed, a topical numbing gel can be applied as well.
No one wants to spend their day at an appointment, even if it is for the sake of beauty. Cosmetic injection appointments are quick, which is good news if you have a busy schedule. They typically only take 10 to 20 minutes to complete, so you can easily schedule them at a time that works best for your daily routine. You won’t have to reorganize your day around these appointments because you’ll be in and out and on your way to beautiful, youthful-looking skin.
Everyone loves quick results; especially when they’re positive ones. That’s exactly what you’ll get when you choose any one of these dermal fillers to treat the signs of aging on your face or enhance your features.
How Quickly You Will Notice Them
You will see an immediate improvement in your problem areas and an immediate change in your features following your initial injections. Your results will continue to improve once the filler settles into your skin. Your best results will appear within a week or a few weeks of receiving your first injections.
How Long They Last
The results from these dermal fillers last for different amounts of time. They all provide long-lasting results and only need to be touched up every one or two years depending on how quickly your body metabolizes the fillers. An injector will be able to provide you with more details regarding how often you will need to schedule touch-up appointments so that you know exactly what to expect.
There are many benefits that you can experience when you choose this trusted brand of dermal fillers. Aside from the fact that they are an effective and fast-acting solution to treat the signs of aging, these injections will help you finally reach your aesthetic goals and turn back the clock.
There’s No Downtime
You won’t experience any recovery downtime following your injections. You can resume most of your normal daily activities immediately following your appointment. You will be asked to avoid strenuous activity, such as intense workouts, as well as excessive sun exposure for 24 hours following your injections. After your injection, your injector will give you any additional information you need regarding how to take care of your skin after your session for best results.
