Juvederm® is one of the leading dermal fillers in today's aesthetic industry. At Facial Aesthetics, we proudly offer this injectable along with several other filler brands. If you are interested in creating smoother, more youthful skin, then Juvederm may be the right option. If you are someone who is new to Juvederm, we have provided complete information below.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler. HA is also found naturally throughout the body. It is contained within soft tissue, joints and elsewhere. You may have also seen HA in the context of arthritis treatments or other medical applications. In an aesthetic context, hyaluronic acid creates smoother, plumper skin. It corrects the appearance of:
- Diminished facial volume
- Creases in the skin on your face
- Sunken cheeks
Juvederm is not the only dermal filler that contains HA, but it is one of the most widely used. There are various types within the brand:
- Ultra XC
- Volbella XC
- Voluma XC
- Vollure XC
The right one per individual depends mainly on the treatment area. Juvederm is typically injected at a mid to deep layer beneath the skin. The result is naturally rejuvenated skin.
Juvederm addresses the following:
- Sunken cheeks
- Creases that look like parentheses around the mouth
- Folds extending downward from the corners of the nose
- Thin and/or downturned lips
- Vertical lines above the upper lip
In our youth, our skin is firm, full and elastic. As we age, two substances largely responsible for these youthful qualities begin to diminish – collagen and hyaluronic acid. This fact combined with years of cumulative sun damage and pollutants on your skin lead to deep folds, harsh angles, and diminished fullness. Juvederm helps to corrects these issues, and each type of Juvederm is formulated to address specific areas/ concerns of the face.
Costs – Complimentary Consultation
When you visit us for your complimentary consultation, we will communicate the costs after you and our experienced Aesthetic Nurse Injectors discuss treatment options. We do offer financing options for those who qualify. Also, be sure to check our Specials page to see if we have any current Juvederm specials. We know that cost is one of the important factors you use to consider your options, and we will make sure you know what to expect and plan for.
Recovery and Downtime
One of the advantageous things about Juvederm is the absence of downtime. After the injections, you may choose to go right back to your day or take a few hours off. There is no reason not to go back to work or other engagements, although swelling and redness is not uncommon at the injection site. Cosmetics are usually adequate to conceal any temporary discoloration.
Juvederm provides lasting results, albeit ultimately temporary. But the results need not fade – retreatment appointments can be scheduled ahead of time to maintain the effect. Here is what you can expect:
- Vollure XC: Softens fine lines and wrinkles for up to 18 months
- Volbella: Augments and rejuvenates the lips, and softens vertical lip lines, for up to a year
- Voluma: Rejuvenation of sunken cheeks for up to two years
This is great longevity from a filler! In one short appointment, your injections will be completed, and you will enjoy long-lasting results, some up to 18 months, depending on the area treated.
Common Questions About Juvederm
How do I know if it is right for me? The experienced team at Facial Aesthetics will examine your face, discuss your goals with you, and create a tailored treatment plan specifically for you.
Will it hurt? The vast majority of patients do not report pain. There may be a moment of slight discomfort when the injection is made, but we can also numb the skin beforehand. Discomfort following your appointment should be minimal. We provide a take-home ice pack and if needed, an over-the-counter pain reliever should be adequate.
Should I consider other options? Our Aesthetic Nurse Injectors will not only determine if you are a Juvederm candidate; they will also let you know of any other aesthetic treatments that you may want to consider.
