What Is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® is a cosmetic dermal filler designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds by adding volume to the skin. One of the major components of JUVÉDERM® is hyaluronic acid, a complex sugar that is natural to the human body. Hyaluronic acid helps promote skin elasticity, and can ultimately to give the skin a smoother, more youthful appearance. JUVÉDERM® injections typically do not require an allergy test to determine candidacy, and there are a variety of JUVÉDERM® injectable products designed for specific concerns.
JUVÉDERM® injections can be performed right here at Bella Derma Medi Spa and usually take approximately 30 minutes to one hour to complete. The injections are performed with an ultra-fine needle precisely inserted into the areas targeted for rejuvenation, and many JUVÉDERM® products include an anesthetic that can produce a more comfortable treatment experience. Most patients do not need a period of recovery after JUVÉDERM® procedures. The length of results from JUVÉDERM® products vary depending on the specific product utilized; however, many patients experience the effects for six months to a year. Some products may yield results that last even longer. For most individuals, the effects can be consistently maintained with follow-up treatments here at Bella Derma Medi Spa.
Am I a Candidate for JUVÉDERM®?
Ideal candidates for JUVÉDERM® injectable products typically include both women and men who would like to:
- Smooth away signs of age such as fine lines and wrinkles
- Add volume and enhanced contour to the lips, cheeks, or other facial areas
- Minimize signs of smile lines and nasolabial folds
JUVÉDERM® can be a good alternative for individuals who are interested in cosmetic facial rejuvenation but may not need or desire facial plastic surgery to achieve their goals. During your initial consultation, we will evaluate your skin and answer any questions you may have. If JUVÉDERM® is right for your needs, we will discuss the most ideal JUVÉDERM® product for your expectations and develop a customized treatment plan.
JUVÉDERM® XC can improve your appearance by “lifting” the skin and enhancing volume to the wrinkles and folds in the treatment area. As a result, JUVÉDERM® XC can provide skin that appears firmer and more taut. The effects of JUVÉDERM® XC injections may last up to one year.
This JUVÉDERM® product utilizes a special formulation that involves a smooth-consistency gel designed to enhance your comfort. It includes an anesthetic called lidocaine to minimize pain from the injections during treatment. Once the JUVÉDERM® XC procedure is complete, patients are typically able to go right back to their daily routines. Bella Derma offers both JUVÉDERM® XC and the JUVÉDERM® Plus XC formulation of this treatment, which can be helpful for addressing deeper wrinkles and fine lines.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus
JUVÉDERM® Ultra and Ultra Plus can be ideal for patients looking to address lines around the corners of the mouth and wrinkles running from the nasal area to the sides of the mouth (“smile lines”). The Ultra version of this product can also be an option for individuals who would like to enhance the lips.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
For years, our patients have been using JUVÉDERM® XC to reduce the natural signs of aging, effectively smoothing fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. Now the makers of this popular dermal filler have developed a new type of injectable that not only stimulates collagen formation, but can also be used to create more volume in the cheeks. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the only FDA-approved, hyaluronic acid-based filler approved to enhance volume in the cheeks, “lift” the cheek area, and simultaneously minimize mid-facial fine lines and wrinkles. Depending on your aesthetic goals, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC can be utilized for the non-surgical augmentation of the apple, apex, or the hollow of the cheek. The treatment can be very beneficial for patients who are experiencing lost volume and “hollowness” in the cheeks.
This innovative injectable is approved for men and women over the age of 21, and the results of a JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC treatment can last up to two years.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC can be an excellent option for patients who would like to add volume to the lips or reduce signs of fine lines and creases surrounding the mouth. This dermal filler is made of a smoother and softer solution, which helps to produce more subtle, yet noticeable, results that appear very natural. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC also includes a lidocaine component to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. With JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC, individuals can achieve fuller, more contoured lips and a beautifully smooth appearance around the mouth that does not look excessively artificial or “augmented.”
JUVÉDERM® Side Effects
Most individuals will experience some degree of redness, mild bruising, or swelling in the areas surrounding the injection sites following JUVÉDERM® treatment; however, these side effects should subside within a few days. Leading up to the treatment, many patients can reduce bruising effects by avoiding blood-thinning medications and supplements. There is usually no downtime necessary after the JUVÉDERM® procedure.
