Whether your skin has suffered the effects of genetics or age, you have options to help you achieve the look you want most.
Juvéderm offers fillers to create or restore facial volume, smooth out skin, and fill in lines and wrinkles. These fillers are a non-surgical way to achieve a refreshed and youthful look with long-lasting results.
When you’re ready to learn more about what Juvéderm could do for you, request an appointment with Kaniff Cosmetic Medical Center.
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm injectables are types of dermal fillers. Fillers plump and smooth out skin. The injectable itself is a soft, clear gel.
The main ingredient in Juvéderm fillers is hyaluronic acid. This acid is known for its skin-rejuvenating benefits. It is produced in the body naturally.
Many skin care products contain hyaluronic acid, mainly due to its ability to keep the skin hydrated. This acid has the ability to bind to and retain water, helping keep skin moisturized and supple for long periods.
When used in an injectable, the hyaluronic acid in Juvéderm helps give patients natural-looking, long-lasting results.
Benefits of Juvéderm
Juvéderm fillers can produce exceptional results and offer patients many benefits, including:
- A non-surgical, minimally invasive way to treat lines, wrinkles, and volume loss
- Lasting, natural results
- Quick treatment
- FDA-approved and effective
Whether you’re looking to treat your lines and creases or give your facial features the volume they lack, Juvéderm may give you the results you seek.
What Areas Does Juvéderm Treat?
Juvéderm fillers can treat different concerns in many facial areas, including:
- Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
- Marionette lines
Juvéderm is mainly used to add volume to an area, eliminating lines and filling in wrinkles around the face. It can also be used to give patients the facial contours they desire. For example, we can use Juvéderm to fill in hollow cheeks or plump up thin lips.
When you come in for your appointment, we can examine your face and better understand your concerns to come up with the ideal treatment plan. Juvéderm can help give you a renewed and radiant appearance.
The Juvéderm line includes multiple types of injectables. We can choose the one that would give you the greatest results, depending on your concerns and aesthetic goals.
Juvéderm Volbella is the thinnest of the Juvéderm injectables. It works best for patients looking to get fuller-looking lips with a more defined lip border. It also treats vertical lines around the lips, which are also called lipstick lines.
With Volbella, patients can achieve the subtly fuller lips they desire. It is also the longest-lasting filler for lips currently available.
Juvéderm Voluma is often used to create facial contours on the mid-face, including the cheeks, where volume loss is common. When precisely placed, Voluma injections can restore the natural curves of the face, giving patients a refreshed look.
Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus are used to fill in lines and wrinkles around the face, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
The main difference between Ultra and Ultra Plus is the consistency. Ultra has a thinner consistency, making it better for filling in fine lines and smaller creases. Ultra Plus is a thicker consistency that is injected deeper into the dermis, allowing it to treat more substantial wrinkles and volume loss.
What to Expect During Your Juvéderm Filler Treatment
Treatment times vary depending on the amount of filler you need and the number of areas to be treated. However, most filler treatments take about 30 minutes to complete.
Once we know which areas you would like to treat, we start by cleaning the treatment area and applying a topical anesthetic for your comfort.
The Juvéderm filler is injected through a thin needle, as we use care and precision in placing the product. Some fillers contain lidocaine to further numb the treatment area.
After your injectable session, you can resume your everyday activities.
Results from Juvéderm Injectables
You should notice some differences in your appearance soon after your Juvéderm appointment. The product may need a little time to settle in, so final results are usually evident a few days after treatment.
Depending on the type of Juvéderm product used, fillers can last quite some time, often from 12 to 24 months. Your body will slowly absorb the hyaluronic acid in Juvéderm fillers as time goes on. Once you start noticing some loss of volume, you can schedule your next appointment.
Combining Juvéderm with Other Injectable Products
It is quite common for patients to combine Juvéderm with other injectables, like Botox.
Botox is a paralytic agent that slows or stops muscle movement wherever it is placed. It smooths and prevents dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and forehead lines.
Depending on your needs and desired look, we can use Botox to smooth your forehead lines. Then we can go in with Juvéderm to fill in nasolabial folds and add volume to hollow areas under your eyes. The result will be smoother, silkier skin.
After analyzing your skin and concerns, we can determine whether combining multiple injectables would help accomplish your aesthetic goals.
