Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm® can help treat a wide range of skin concerns effectively and without the risks posed by a surgical procedure.
If you’re looking for a minimally invasive treatment that can help restore volume loss, soften the look of facial wrinkles, and make your skin look and feel smoother, you may want to try Juvéderm® fillers.
Read on to learn more about Juvéderm®!
What Is Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® is a collection of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers that are injected under the skin to address age-related volume loss, along with other signs of aging, such as:
- Facial lines and wrinkles
- Thinning lips
- Sunken cheeks
- Uneven skin texture
- Sagging skin
- Under Eye hollows
- Uneven facial contours
Hyaluronic acid in these fillers mimics the natural effects of the HA present in your skin (i.e., hydrating and moisturizing your skin, making it look plumper and rejuvenated).
Juvéderm® fillers are also known to promote collagen and elastin production in your skin, which makes it firm yet supple to the touch.
Who is a Good Candidate for Juvederm?
An ideal candidate for Juvéderm® is anyone who is:
- At least 21 years or older.
- Looking for a non-surgical approach to address common signs of aging.
- In good physical health and has no active infection or other underlying conditions at the injection site.
Different Juvéderm® Fillers
The expert injector at Dr. Chow’s uses the following Juvéderm® fillers to help people achieve their desired look:
Juvéderm® Voluma® – To add volume and provide a more contoured look to the cheeks, cheekbones, and chin.
Juvéderm® Ultra® and Volbella® – Ideal for lip augmentation or to reduce the appearance of smokers’ lines around the lips.
What Happens During The Treatment?
The treatment is virtually painless and quick – each injection usually takes only a few minutes.
However, the procedure requires precision and accuracy and should only be performed by a highly skilled injector. Measured doses of chosen Juvéderm® filler will be injected into your skin using a very fine needle, significantly reducing the risk of swelling, bruising, and blood vessel damage.
Injections are followed by a gentle massage, which helps to distribute Juvéderm® evenly, resulting in a more natural and subtle look.
How Soon Can I See The Results?
You can see initial improvements such as fuller and smoother skin almost immediately after the procedure. Some people might also experience mild swelling and redness at the injection site, but the full results will kick in as soon as they subside on their own within a day or two.
Like other fillers, the results of Juvéderm® fillers are not permanent and can last anywhere between 6 to 18 months depending on the type of filler used. For example, Juvéderm® Ultra and Juvéderm® Volbella® can last for a year, whereas Juvéderm® Voluma® can last even longer.
Furthermore, if you don’t like the results, they can easily be reversed with an enzyme called hyaluronidase. Still, it is best to discuss your aesthetic concerns and goals well in advance with your provider to manage expectations.
Different fillers in the Juvéderm® line can help treat different skin concerns. However, it all comes down to choosing the right filler – and a well-trained injector to administer it. At Dr. Chow’s Rejuvenation Practice, Lee’s Summit, Missouri, our expert injector has had tremendous experience with Juvéderm® fillers, so rest assured you will be in good hands.
