What is a Dermal Filler?
A dermal filler lies under your skin to increase the volume in that desired area. It brings fullness to your face and reduces the effects of wrinkles. It prevents your face from sagging in certain areas that are most commonly affected by age. A dermal filler can restore the volume that gives you that youthful glow.
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is a type of dermal filler injection that can restore fullness to the areas of your face that have become hollow or sunken from age. Juvéderm aims to maintain moisture and volume in the desired area. It is minimally invasive and non-surgical, which means there is minimal downtime after the treatment. Juvéderm can also be used to smooth out wrinkles, reduce acne scars, and enhance the size of your lips. Juvéderm contains hyaluronic acid.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid, or HA, is a substance that is found naturally in your body and is responsible for adding volume to your skin. It is the most commonly used type of dermal filler injectable due to its wide range of uses. It is found in the connective tissue surrounding your eyes.
What Areas Does It Treat
Juvéderm can be used to treat various areas on your face and can even treat hands that have lost volume over time. Juvéderm is perfect for areas that have started drooping or losing their plumpness as you have aged. Contact us if you would like a Juvéderm injection for the following areas:
The effects of Juvéderm can be seen immediately after the initial procedure and has long-lasting results for most patients. The results can last between 6 months to two years. You can maintain the effects further by receiving follow-up treatments. We will offer reliable advice as to when these follow-up treatments should be scheduled.
Uses of Juvéderm
Juvéderm has a range of 5 dermal fillers to suit your unique needs. These different fillers aim to target various areas. It is always best to tell us what areas you would like treated so we can recommend the ideal dermal filler injection to reach your desired results. All Juvéderm fillers are only for use on patients over 21 years of age. The following uses have been approved for the respective areas:
JUVÉDERM® VOLUXTM XC
This injectable gel is a deep injection that is used to treat severe loss of jawline definition.
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC is for deep injections to add volume to cheeks and improve your chin profile by augmenting the area around your chin.
JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE® XC, JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC, and JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC
These dermal fillers are injected into the facial tissue to reduce moderate to severe wrinkles and facial folds, like nasolabial folds. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is also used to enhance the size of your lips.
JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC
JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC is injected into the lips to enhance the size and correct perioral lines. The perioral is the area surrounding your lips. JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC can also be used to reduce the hollows under your eyes by adding volume.
Can Juvéderm Treat Static and Dynamic Wrinkles?
The short answer is “yes”. Dynamic wrinkles are often caused by laughing, smiling, and frowning over the years. Static wrinkles are a result of gravity and the reduction of collagen production as we age. Juvéderm can be used to treat both these kinds of wrinkles, unlike most dermal fillers.
The Juvéderm Procedure
During your initial consultation, we will discuss the results you want to achieve and how we can make it happen. We will then set an appointment for you to have your Juvéderm filler. Once you arrive for your treatment, we will use a local anesthetic to prevent any discomfort you may feel from the injection. Once the anesthetic becomes effective, we will administer the Juvéderm to the desired area. Since the treatment is minimally invasive, patients do not need to stop their daily activities after the treatment is completed. Most patients go back to their daily activities.
After Your Juvéderm Treatment
We will outline a few suggestions to follow so you can maintain results for as long as possible.
- Avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours after your treatment.
- Do not participate in activities that will increase your blood pressure, such as saunas and hot tubs, and exercise for four hours after your treatment.
- Do not apply makeup at least one hour after your Juvéderm treatment to allow your skin to breathe.
- Avoid making excessive facial expressions and strenuous activities for at least four hours after the Juvéderm injection to prevent disturbing the injected area.
- Do not rub or massage the treated area for up to 24 hours after the treatment.
