What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler that is injected to smooth wrinkles and/or add volume to the face. As we age we lose a teaspoon of volume in our face every year after the age of 20. One vial equals a teaspoon of product. Juvederm is a popular choice for wrinkle and fine reduction, lip enhancement, and it can also be used in the nasolabial folds on either side of the nose. Juvederm treatment has immediate results, and patients will enjoy their results for several months after initial treatment.
How does Juvederm Work?
As a person ages, the skin begins to lose its natural storage of hyaluronic acid. This results in sagging and the formation of wrinkles and fine lines in the face. Hyaluronic acid is filled in the fatty tissue of the desired area that needs restoration. Juvederm is not an invasive or surgical procedure.
What are the Different Areas Treated with Juvederm?
Juvederm Volbella adds subtle volume to the lips and reduces the appearance of vertical lip lines. Juvederm Voluma adds volume in the cheek area to restore a more youthful appearance. Juvederm XC smooths moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles to create a smoother appearance. Depending on which areas of the face that you desire treatment, your injector will discuss the types of fillers that are appropriate for that area.
What is Juvederm Voluma XC?
Juvederm Voluma XC is the newest addition to the Juvederm family of dermal filler products. It is most commonly used to add volume to the cheeks in patients with age-related volume loss. Juvederm Voluma can be used in conjunction with Botox, Juvederm Ultra Plus and skin resurfacing to achieve a nonsurgical face lift.
What is the Cost of Juvederm Treatment?
Juvederm is priced by the syringe. The cost will be different for each patient based on the total amount of syringes needed to achieve the desired level of volume correction. Most patients need at least one syringe of product per area. Tonya Sook, APRN-C will help each patient determine how much product will give them the desired results.
Is The Injection Process Painful?
No, most patients don't experience any significant level of pain or discomfort during a Juvederm XC, Juvederm Volbella, or Juvederm Voluma XC treatment. A numbing cream is used before any Juvederm treatment to help keep patients comfortable.
What is the Recovery Process After Juvederm Treatment?
The recovery process is a fairly fast one, and in fact, patients can generally resume their usual routine right away if they wish. There may be some minor swelling and redness at the injection site, but this usually dissipates within just a few days.
