Eventually, the aging process catches up with all of us. Even if you take extra care to maintain healthy, beautiful skin, you’ll eventually see smile lines, laugh lines, crow’s feet, and other common signs of aging. That’s because our skin changes over time and slows down in repairing cell damage and producing collagen. Collagen is the protein responsible for the skin’s elasticity and smoothness. As it diminishes, the skin becomes laxer and more prone to folds and sagging. In addition, subdermal facial tissues lose volume, causing a sunken appearance that further contributes to wrinkles and sagging.
While you can’t turn back the clock on these changes in the skin, you can restore your youthful appearance with dermal fillers from Juvederm facial fillers is a leading dermal filler collection with five products to meet your specific needs. Each is designed to address a specific aging skin concern.
Juvederm Vobella XC and Juvederm Ultra XC are two types of dermal filler that can be used to add volume to plump lips.
The Juvederm Ultra Plus XC and Juvederm Vollure XC are two types of injectable dermal filler that are popular for use on the face. These products can be used to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles, as well as contour and lift on the cheeks or shape on the chin.
What Juvederm Treats
- Wrinkles – Fine lines and wrinkles easily give away your age. Often, you’ll see wrinkles in areas around the nose and mouth known as laugh lines, parentheses lines, or nasolabial folds. You might also see marionette lines on the lower face or bunny lines along the edges of the nose. These wrinkles develop along the natural creases of the face, and they only tend to get worse as you age. Juvederm Vollure XC and Juvederm XC are both suited to treating these moderate to severe wrinkles in the lower face.
- Cheeks – Loss of volume in the cheekbones is another common effect of aging. Fortunately, Juvederm Voluma XC is designed specifically to add volume in the mid-face. This Juvederm injectable gel is injected deep into the cheek area to plump the subdermal tissue and restore a more youthful appearance.
- Lips – Some women are born with a plump, full pout. However, most women will need a little help achieving one. That’s especially true as we get older, since the lips tend to lose more of their volume and definition over time. Juvederm Ultra XC is an injectable gel that can plump the lips and add volume to get the full, luscious pout you crave.
How Juvederm Works
Each Juvederm formula is made primarily from hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body, so it is safe to use it as a dermal filler. Each formula is distinguished by the size of HA molecules in it and the consistency of the injection itself. This will determine how much the solution spreads once it is injected under the skin. Different types of Juvederm are also injected at differing depths, depending on the targeted skin concern. Restoring facial volume in the cheekbones, for example, requires a deeper injection than filling in nasolabial wrinkles.
During the procedure, the doctor generally uses a pen for marking the treatment area on the skin. Then the doctor then injects Juvederm into the target area. After the injection, they will lightly massage the treatment area to ensure an even distribution of the dermal filler and also to reduce the chances of swelling. The entire Juvederm procedure takes around 15 to 60 minutes, depending on the area to be treated. The final individual results may vary depending on the treatment area, the body’s response to treatment, etc.
Juvederm injections contain a small amount of pain-reducing lidocaine that helps in minimizing any pain or discomfort felt during the treatment.
Juvederm treatment is temporary, with effects lasting about 6-12 months, on average. However, patients can schedule ongoing Juvederm treatments to maintain their amazing results. In addition, Juvederm has virtually no downtime, so it’s perfect to schedule as a lunchtime treatment.
Risks and side effects of Juvederm
After Juvederm treatment, you may experience some swelling and bruising along with other common side effects like redness and tenderness of the area and lumps formed around the treatment area, or slight pain along with itching. These common side effects are expected to subside within 2 to 4 weeks.
Unprofessional handling of the Juvederm filler can lead to more serious side effects. Injecting Juvederm into a blood vessel accidentally can lead to complications like permanent scarring, vision issues, or stroke. It is very important to choose the doctor administering Juvederm wisely. Ensure that the doctor you choose is trained, certified, and licensed to offer Juvederm dermal fillers.
