Aging is inevitable, but the Juvederm® line of products is making it possible for patients to wage a fair battle against this natural process. Whether they’re wanting to fill in fine lines and wrinkles or boost their facial volume, Juvederm® and Juvederm Voluma® are here to help.
The Basics of Juvederm®
Juvederm® is a hyaluronic acid filler designed to instantly fill in wrinkles and fine lines around the nose and mouth without any surgery. The results last up to a year, and since the office visit takes less than an hour, patients are able to return to work and their normal activities as soon as they leave the appointment.
Patients who avoid non-steroidal anti-inflammatories prior to treatment will experience little to no bruising or swelling.
Juvederm® is simply injected into the areas that need to be filled in, instantly smoothing the areas and decreasing the appearance of the wrinkles. The hyaluronic acid fills the depressions in and encourages the skin to naturally produce more hyaluronic acid, resulting in skin that’s smoother, tighter, and more youthful looking.
What is Juvederm Voluma®?
While they’re made by the same company, Juvederm® and Juvederm Voluma® have two different purposes. Juvederm® is used to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth, and Juvederm Voluma® is used to restore volume in the cheeks.
As people age, particularly women, fat in the face will start to disappear, resulting in reduced facial volume. Juvederm Voluma® is suitable for anyone over the age of 21 and can produce visible results that last for up to two years.
In the past when patients asked their doctors to restore facial volume, this meant they would get a facelift. Thanks to Juvederm Voluma®, the volume in the cheeks can be restored in just one or two office visits without any surgery.
The treatments are quick and can often be done during a lunch break. The doctor will apply a numbing cream on the face 20 minutes prior to the injections. The injection process will then begin.
The needles are very small and relatively painless, and Juvederm Voluma® also has lidocaine added to further decrease any discomfort. Once the injections are complete, patients can return to their normal activities.
Facial fillers are an excellent alternative to plastic surgery and often provide better results than painful and invasive surgical procedures. Patients looking for a little extra volume or youthfulness in their skin should consider Juvederm® or Juvederm Voluma® for immediate and long-lasting results.
