It’s normal for the appearance and texture of your skin to change over time. But you don’t have to put up with it. If you’re looking for a way to get back your youthful appearance, fillers could be the solution for you. For skin that looks healthy, young, and natural, Juvederm is a carefully formulated injectable that we here at ICT Eye & Beautiful Eyes in Wichita, KS are ready to provide you with.
Does Juvederm Look Natural?
Getting comes with many positives. With age comes wisdom, experience, and a deeper sense of who you are as a person. But some drawbacks come along with this natural process. One of the major issues people face is changes in the look and quality of their skin. Your skin may begin to wrinkle, sag, and lose its fullness.
Injectables offer a great way to maintain a youthful, healthy appearance. But not every injectable looks natural. Juvederm is a carefully formulated injectable that uses hyaluronic acid, an ingredient naturally found in the human body, to provide you with subtle but still effective results.
What Is Juvederm?
This is a filler that has been specially designed to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on your face. It offers you a non-invasive but very effective way of maintaining a youthful and healthy appearance.
It is also a completely safe treatment method, having been FDA approved. Instead of going with a surgical procedure that can be time-consuming and painful, or a topical cream that may not work as well as you’d like, this filler is fast, easy, and really works.
How Does Juvederm Work?
The main ingredient in this filler is hyaluronic acid. This is a sugar that can be found in various parts of the human body. Your connective tissues, eyes, and your skin all contain amounts of hyaluronic acid.
So what does hyaluronic acid do? One of its main jobs is maintaining moisture in your body. When it’s injected into your skin, it helps fill in any areas where there may be sagging or wrinkling. It will also help your skin maintain moisture, which allows you to enjoy your results for longer.
Why Do We Get Wrinkles?
Wrinkles can be caused by a variety of things. The main cause is aging. As we get older, the amount of collagen in our skin begins to decrease. Collagen is what gives your skin its structure, so its loss will result in sagging and wrinkling.
Other factors can contribute to your skin wrinkling more quickly. If you drink or smoke excessively, this can affect the collagen in your skin. The UV rays from the sun can also penetrate your skin and reduce the amount of collagen present. When you receive this injectable, one of the things it will do along with providing more volume is that it will encourage your body to produce more collagen.
The Different Types of Juvederm
There are several different types of this filler that target different areas of the face. Depending on the results you’re looking for, you will receive one or more of these types.
Vollure XC and Ultra XC
This type is used primarily around the mouth area. This is one of the most commonly targeted areas of the face, as wrinkles appear most easily here. That’s because your mouth moves a lot throughout the day as you speak and make facial expressions.
As your skin loses collagen, however, your skin stops being able to smooth out when the muscles relax. This will result in dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles that form when the muscles move, becoming static. Vollure XC will smooth out wrinkles and fine lines that appear in this area.
Ultra Plus XC
Ultra Plus XC is designed for wrinkles that are slightly more severe. Nasolabial folds or the wrinkles that go from your nose to your mouth can be quite deep.
This filler works particularly well for rather deep folds.
One of the major areas where sagging happens is the cheek area. When your young, the amount of collagen in your cheeks keeps them full and healthy-looking. However, as your collagen levels begin to reduce, gravity takes a firmer hold of your cheeks. This results in sagging.
Voluma XC targets the cheek area specifically, providing you with the volume that you’ve been missing.
Some people have naturally thin lips. Others lose a lot of their lips’ definition as they age. Whatever the reason, thin lips can be a source of insecurity for many people. Volbella XC is formulated to target the lip area.
When you receive this filler, you’ll find that your lips are larger, plumper, and have much more definition.
How To Get Natural-Looking, Long-Lasting Results
Because this filler’s main ingredient is found in various parts of the human body, it offers a safe and effective way to get the youthful appearance you want. However, if you want your results to look as natural as possible and to maintain them for as long as you can, there are a few things that you should make sure you do.
Go to the Right Clinic
There are many clinics out there that offer injectables like this one. But one thing you need to understand is that not all clinics are equal. Always look for a reputable clinic, and take the time to do your research and find the right place for you instead of simply opting for the first clinic you see.
When you visit our clinic, you’ll appreciate how welcoming, clean, and comfortable it is. You’ll know you’re in good hands when you choose our clinic.
Find Someone Experienced
Not just anyone can perform these injections, especially if you want your results to look as natural as possible. Look for someone who has been carefully trained and, ideally, has a long history of successfully providing these injections.
When you find a provider that you’re interested in, don’t let your research stop there. Make sure to ask plenty of questions, and don’t worry about any of them being unnecessary. It’s important to make sure that you’ll be getting what you’re looking for out of your treatment.
The person performing your injection has a responsibility to provide you with high-quality service, safety, and comfort. But if you want to get natural-looking results, then you have a certain level of responsibility, too.
It’s up to you to communicate effectively with your injector. Make sure that you clearly indicate which areas concern you, and explain the results that you’d like to see. When you come to our clinic, you can expect your communication to be met with equal transparency, which will help you get what you’re looking for out of the process.
What Is Juvederm Process Like?
If you’re thinking of getting this injection, then you’re probably wondering what the process looks like. When you visit our clinic, you can trust that the process will be fast, easy, and completely safe. You’ll also get to enjoy natural-looking results administered by our caring and experienced injectors.
Some treatment methods for reducing and eliminating fine lines and wrinkles require extensive preparation beforehand. This can be a real downside. But one of the benefits of getting this injectable is that there is very little you need to do to prepare for the treatment.
You will need to avoid a few things for this injectable to be effective and to make the process itself as safe as possible. Try not to take medications that act as blood thinners, and avoid aspirin and ibuprofen. You may also need to stop taking certain supplements like St. John’s Wort. Smoking and drinking should also be avoided.
During the Treatment
The first thing that we will do when you come to our clinic is to begin with a consultation. Remember, be sure to outline the areas that concern you, and be clear about the results you’d like to see. This consultation will help us set your expectations, and will offer you a good chance to ask any questions that you may have.
The treatment process itself is very fast, and will likely be able to be performed right after your consultation is done. When you’re ready for your treatment, we will carefully clean your skin where the injection will be administered. A small amount of numbing cream may also be applied. Once your skin is prepared, we will strategically inject the product using a fine and precise needle. The entire process should only take somewhere between 15 minutes to an hour.
After the Treatment
Injectables like this one are desirable because, unlike surgical procedures, they require very little downtime. Going with surgery requires weeks of recovery time, which can be as inconvenient as it is uncomfortable. If you get this filler, however, the healing time will be very fast and you’ll be able to get back to your busy life right away.
You’ll be able to leave our clinic once the treatment is complete. As long as you avoid certain things like direct sunlight, strenuous activity, and pressing down on the injection areas then you’ll get the long-lasting and natural-looking results you’re looking for.
When Will I See Results?
If you’re looking for a fast-acting treatment, then this filler is perfect for you. You’ll notice a change in the appearance of your skin immediately after your treatment.
While many fillers take days or sometimes even weeks to start showing you the results you want, you’ll notice right away that your skin looks fuller and that those fine lines and wrinkles that have bugged you so much are already starting to be smoothed away.
How Long Juvederm Last?
No anti-wrinkle treatment is permanent, but you can still expect long-lasting results with this filler. With many injections, you may need to return to the clinic for monthly injections to maintain the results you want.
This filler is great because it’s extremely low-maintenance. Most people get to enjoy results for anywhere between 6 months to 2 years. Keeping up with regular skincare and practicing other healthy lifestyle habits will help you keep your results for longer.
Get Natural-Looking Youthful Skin
There are lots of treatment options available if you’re looking to get the youthful skin that you once had back. But not all of these treatments will offer you the subtle, natural-looking results that you might be looking for. If you want a safe, effective, and low-maintenance treatment, then Juvederm could be the right option for you.
