Juvederm® is a dermal filler, which means it plumps out areas where facial volume loss has occurred. It is minimally-invasive and made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance that draws water to an area in the body and helps to lock it in. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 2 million people had hyaluronic acid dermal filler treatments in 2018. Advances in technology have made Juvederm® more comfortable and long-lasting than ever.
Types of Juvederm®
Currently, there are four main kinds of Juvederm®. If there’s an XC after the name, this means that the product also has lidocaine. The lidocaine usually means that the provider does not need to numb the patient’s face before the treatment. It basically ensures that the patient is comfortable. Voluma and Vollure add volume to the cheeks and soften the look of lines around the patient’s mouth and nose, while Ultra and Volbella are used to plump up and soften the look of the lips.
Who’s a Candidate?
The candidate for Juvederm® is in good overall health and is not allergic to either lidocaine or Juvederm®. It’s also important to have realistic expectations regarding what the treatment can and cannot do for you. It is designed to address facial volume loss and static lines and wrinkles. It’s not designed to treat dynamic wrinkles. This is something that a product like BOTOX® can address.
A Juvederm® treatment usually takes just minutes. During the treatment, the solution is skillfully injected into the preselected area(s). Treatments are performed in the comfort of our office and are designed to be quick and convenient, even for those with busy schedules.
Results vary, but you could see the results of your Juvederm® treatment right away, and the improvements can last for as long as a year, depending on the situation and the exact filler used. Touch-up treatments can be performed as needed for ongoing results.
