Your Guide to JUVÉDERM®
Posted April 05, 2018 in JUVÉDERM®
Your face is the first feature that others will notice about your appearance. As you age, your skin becomes lax and is not able to bounce back as quickly as it used to. Wrinkles and creases will become more and more apparent, which may cause you to look much older than you are. If your skin is losing its elasticity, your wrinkles are becoming more prevalent, or you are noticing a loss of facial volume, we have options available to you that do not require a surgical procedure.
Dermal fillers can provide your skin with volume to help smooth out wrinkles and takes years off your facial features. Dr. Hochstein offers a variety of JUVÉDERM® formulations, designed to restore facial features with just a small injection.
The main ingredient in JUVÉDERM® is hyaluronic acid. This is a substance produced naturally in your body that aids in maintaining skin hydration and softness. JUVÉDERM® has multiple formulations designed to target different areas of your face and can treat a variety of conditions. Some even contain lidocaine in order to make your treatment more comfortable.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
This formulation targets the lips and the lines around the lips. In addition to removing these lines, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC can even provide some additional volume to the lips themselves. It creates a subtle change that allows for a naturally plump appearance. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is one of the newest formulations on the market. Based on clinical studies, the treatment can last up to one year.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the only FDA-approved filler for providing instant volume to your cheek area. As you age, you may start to lose the fat in your cheeks, which can cause the sunken look that is prevalent in many middle-aged faces. After your injectable treatment, you will notice a subtle lift that will give you a more youthful, vibrant profile. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC has been clinically proven to last up to two years.
This injectable filler works best on moderate to severe lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth. JUVÉDERM® XC is manufactured with HYLACROSS™ technology, which creates a smooth gel consistency. Clinical studies have proven that the treatment can last up to one year.
Your JUVÉDERM® treatment will take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes. Your individual procedure time will depend on the size of the area being treated and whether you are combining procedures. Results are apparent immediately after your treatment. You may experience some temporary tenderness, swelling, bruising, or redness at the treatment sites.
