JUVÉDERM® is a hyaluronic acid (HA) based dermal filler that is designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by restoring lost facial volume. The cosmetic injectable is known for achieving a younger-looking facial aesthetic by diminishing common signs of aging; it can also be successfully used for lip augmentation.
The JUVÉDERM® family of dermal fillers, including JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, JUVÉDERM® Ultra, and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus, can be used to effectively treat age-related facial concerns, such as:
- Fine lines
- Wrinkles and deep creases
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Lost facial volume (including the tear trough area)
- Thinning lips
While no dermal filler can achieve the same level of facial rejuvenation as surgical procedures, many of our patients choose to use the JUVÉDERM® family of dermal fillers to address early signs of facial aging or restore lost volume without the need for surgery. For most patients, the results from a single JUVÉDERM® treatment can last approximately six to nine months, if not longer. Patients who wish to extend and maintain their results can easily do so by scheduling periodic follow-up treatment sessions.
Hyaluronic acid – the key ingredient to the entire JUVÉDERM® family – is a substance that is found naturally in our skin. As a result, patients do not need to undergo allergy testing (or a wait period) before beginning their treatment. The smooth JUVÉDERM® gel can retain its shape after injection, plumping the skin at the target area, restoring lost volume, and ultimately reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and deep creases.
One of our experienced Physician Assistants will use a very fine needle to inject the JUVÉDERM® gel into the target area. To enhance your comfort, a local anesthetic can be applied to the surface of your skin before the injection. Though many patients will notice an immediate improvement in their skin, results should continue to improve during the days following your procedure. Most JUVÉDERM® procedures can be completed within 30 minutes.
Some patients may experience mild swelling or bruising at the injection site, though these side effects should recede quickly. Typically, there is zero downtime associated with JUVÉDERM®, and most patients return to their normal daily activities immediately after leaving our office. Many of our patients schedule their JUVÉDERM® treatment during a lunch break.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC remains the only dermal filler that is FDA-approved for restoring lost volume in the midfacial region. This unique hyaluronic acid formula is injected into the cheek area and designed to replenish the tissue that often depletes during the natural aging process. Patients can usually see results immediately after the injection, achieving smoother skin, fewer wrinkles and facial lines, and a fuller cheek area. The results of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC can last up to two years.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus
JUVÉDERM® Ultra and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus use a hyaluronic acid-based gel that can address a number of common cosmetic concerns with the use of one product. In addition to restoring lost volume, these dermal fillers can smooth and soften even the most delicate areas of the face, reducing the prominence of smile lines (nasolabial folds), wrinkles at the corners of the mouth, marionette lines (creases around the chin), and the tear trough area (under the eyes). With the addition of lidocaine, JUVÉDERM® Ultra and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus can help patients feel even more comfortable during the procedure.
