What is Juvederm used for?

What Is the Purpose of Juvederm?

Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that is used to smooth out wrinkles in the cheeks, lips, and around the nose and mouth. While many people think of Juvederm as a non-surgical alternative to lip injections, it can also be used to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles by replenishing lost facial volume. Here’s a closer look at how it can help with various aspects of your face:

 

  • Rejuvenation of the Lower Face

Many people find this procedure to be useful for lower face rejuvenation, as the area around your mouth and lips tends to sag as you get older, resulting in unsightly smile lines.

 

  • Area of the Cheeks

Many people utilize this therapy to give volume to their face as a non-surgical alternative to shaping and contouring their cheeks, which can become hollow and indistinct as they age.

 

  • Area of the Nose

You can also benefit from this procedure if you are unhappy with the form of your nose but do not want to undergo plastic surgery. Juvederm injections might help you achieve the look you want for your nose. You can utilize it to alter a flat bridge, prominent tip, hump, or the size of your nostrils, for example.

What Is the Process?

By boosting your body’s natural hyaluronic acid production, this therapy provides volume to your facial tissue. This is a sugar that can be found in your skin and cartilage. When mixed with water, it forms a gel-like substance that swells and smoothes the skin. Fillers that inject hyaluronic acid into your body have been chemically engineered to break down more slowly, giving you longer-lasting benefits.

Understanding Juvederm’s Different Types of Products

Different concentrations and bondings of hyaluronic acid are used in different products under this brand to tackle different skin types and concerns. The one you utilize in your treatment will be determined by what you want to achieve and how long you want to achieve it.

XC Voluma

Voluma XC is the first and only FDA-approved dermal filler for volume loss in the mid-facial area. This product is designed to boost the size of your cheeks by adding volume beneath the surface of your skin for a more natural-looking and smoother contour. This product can help you get effects that last up to two years without the need for plastic surgery if you are losing skin elasticity around your lips and nose.

XC Vollure

Vollure XC is also FDA-approved, and it works for up to 18 months to reduce moderate to severe creases and folds. Each treatment is custom-made for you, utilizing a unique blend of gel characteristics that can enhance slight volume to your face.

Ultra XC is a type of cross-country ski.

Ultra XC is also used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds on the face, which range from mild to severe. It’s also been given the green light for lip augmentation. This product might be perfect for you if you have thinning lips or lip wrinkles. The effects can last anywhere from six months to a year, and you can come back for maintenance treatments to keep your results consistent.


XC Volbella

The FDA has approved Volbella XC for increasing lip fullness and correcting perioral lines, with benefits that can last up to a year.

Juvederm Advantages

Juvederm is a well-known brand that has been helping people minimize indications of aging for more than ten years. The entire product range has a strong reputation for being both safe and effective, and it is well-liked by both patients and our employees.

Suitable for All Skin Types

These treatments can help you whether your skin is dry, oily, normal, sensitive, or a combination of these. It is useful in both men and women and works effectively on damaged and rough skin.

It has a low level of intrusion.

Unlike plastic surgery, which requires a general anesthetic and several incisions, this procedure can be done with a series of tiny injections instead of a scalpel. Treatments are so straightforward that they can usually be completed on the same day as your initial appointment.

There is little to no downtime.

You can anticipate to be in recovery for at least a few weeks after a surgical operation. Long recovery durations frequently need rearranging your schedule and enlisting assistance with your obligations, which can be inconvenient. You may resume your normal routine immediately after treatment with a non-invasive alternative, and you won’t have to rely on anyone else.

It’s hypoallergenic.

This type of filler is manufactured from hyaluronic acid, which is present naturally in your body and is not derived from animals. Other fillers contain hyaluronic acid derived from animals, which may cause an allergic reaction if your body is sensitive to animal products. This treatment’s acid prevents any potential problems or allergic responses. Furthermore, you will not be required to undergo an allergy scratch test prior to your injection.

Is It True That I’m a Good Candidate?

Because each patient is unique, assessing if you are a good candidate will be based on a number of criteria. Any person over the age of 40 who is in good physical health is a great candidate for this treatment. As a general rule, you should wait until you start to show indications of aging before seeking treatment. If you’re pregnant, breastfeeding, or allergic to lidocaine or bacterial proteins, this treatment isn’t for you.

Those who have creases around their nose and mouth even when they aren’t smiling are ideal candidates. Similarly, if your cheeks have lost volume or your lips are thin and unfeminine, you may be a good candidate. During your appointment, we’ll go through your medical history and desired aesthetic goals to make sure this is the best option for you.
