Juvederm is the most popular dermal filler on the market, and that’s not surprising considering its many uses. At Beautiful Eyes in Wichita, KS, we offer many of the Juvederm products, along with other injectables, to help you reach your appearance goals.
What Is Juvederm Used for?
This product is a highly versatile one that comes in various forms, each of which targets a specific part of the face. Therefore, it can be used to address a wide range of facial issues, including small wrinkles, large folds, and loss of volume in the cheeks. We can help you determine the best solution for your specific needs and preferences.
Around the Eyes
One common problem area is crow’s feet, which are wrinkles at the corners of the eyes that often appear with age. Juvederm can be used to soften these wrinkles and improve their appearance. Frown lines, which are wrinkles that form between the eyebrows, are another common sign of aging that this product can address. These lines can be especially noticeable if the rest of the skin is youthful and healthy.
As we get older, our cheeks can lose volume and firmness. Juvederm offers a special filler called Voluma that can help restore the youthful contour of the cheeks. Nasolabial folds, which are wrinkles that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth, can also be treated with this line of products.
This dermal filler can be used to add volume to the lips, making them appear fuller and more youthful. It can also be used to smooth out lines and wrinkles around the mouth, creating a more defined lip border and improving the overall appearance of the lips.
How It Works
Juvederm uses a chemical called hyaluronic acid (HA) to add volume and smooth out wrinkles in your skin. This chemical is naturally present in your body and helps to keep your skin nourished and hydrated. When injected into the skin, this product helps to temporarily restore lost volume and smooth out any lines or wrinkles, creating a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
About Hyaluronic Acid
One of the main properties of HA is that it binds to water, which is essential for maintaining the hydration and suppleness of your skin. As we age, our skin can lose some of its hydration and become drier and less elastic. By injecting small amounts of HA into the skin, this treatment helps to restore some of the lost hydration and improve the overall appearance of your skin.
The treatment process is relatively quick and easy. A small amount of this product is injected under the surface of the skin, and the effects are usually noticeable within the same day. Over the course of the next two weeks, the treatment will continue to work, and the ideal results will begin to take shape. If you’re looking for a non-surgical way to improve the appearance of your skin, this product may be a good option for you.
Types of Juvederm
There are several different products in this line, each of which is designed to address specific concerns and areas of the face. Some of the products in the line include:
Ultra XC and Ultra Plus XC
If you’re interested in lip augmentation, Ultra XC injectable gel may be a good option for you. This product is designed specifically for use in the lips and perioral area and is suitable for adults ages 21 and older.
If you’re interested in cheek augmentation, Voluma XC injectable gel may be the right option. This product is specifically designed to add volume to the mid-face and correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks. It is injected deep into the subcutaneous and/or subperiosteal layers of the skin to achieve the desired results.
If you’re looking to improve the appearance of your lips or smooth out lines around your mouth, Volbella XC injectable gel can help. This product is specifically designed for use in the lips and is injected into the desired area to add volume and smooth out any wrinkles or lines.
Am I a Candidate for Treatment?
As a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler, this product is generally safe and well-tolerated by most people. However, as a precaution, we typically do not recommend this treatment for women who are currently pregnant or lactating.
Other dermal fillers and chemical peels may carry a higher risk of allergic reactions, but Juvederm is unlikely to cause any issues because it is made from a naturally occurring substance. That being said, it’s always a good idea to discuss any potential concerns or allergies with us before starting any treatment. We can help you determine if this product is a good option for you based on your specific needs and medical history.
If you’re interested in achieving a more youthful appearance and addressing specific areas of your skin that show signs of aging, are in generally good health, are not pregnant or breastfeeding, and don’t have a history of extreme allergic reactions, you are definitely an ideal candidate.
There is no one “right age” for this treatment, as everyone grows and ages differently. Some people may be more concerned about laugh lines or crow’s feet, while others are more focused on adding volume to their lips or restoring lost volume to their cheeks. We can help you determine which areas of your skin may benefit from treatment and how to achieve your specific goals. They can also recommend the best product from the line for your needs.
Have a Realistic Outlook
Although this product can produce dramatic improvements in the appearance of wrinkles and folds, individual results may vary. It’s important to have realistic expectations about the look you are trying to achieve with this filler.
In addition, it’s worth noting that the hyaluronic acid used in the treatment is a natural, biodegradable chemical. Over time, it will gradually be absorbed by the body, and its effects will begin to lessen. To maintain long-lasting results, many people find it helpful to return for follow-up sessions. This can help to maintain the desired effects of the treatment and keep your skin looking youthful and refreshed.
If you’re vegan or vegetarian, or if you simply prefer to avoid using animal-based products for any reason, it’s good to know that Juvederm is created without using animal products. This means that you can use the filler without worrying about potentially coming into contact with animal-derived ingredients. We can provide you with more information about the specific ingredients used in this product and how it is produced to ensure that it is consistent with your personal values and preferences.
Preparing for Treatment
The first step in your treatment process is a consultation with us. During this in-person meeting, we’ll help you determine if Juvederm is the right choice for you and your long-term goals. The consultation is important for a few reasons. First, it helps us understand which areas you would like to treat. This information is crucial in choosing the right product for your needs.
The consultation is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions you might have about the treatment process. You can ask us about what the treatment will feel like, how you should prepare, and what you should do after the treatment. We may also ask you about any medications you’re taking or any health issues you have in your personal history. This information will help us make personalized recommendations based on your unique needs and circumstances.
Before your treatment session, there are a few things we recommend you do to prepare. For about five days before your treatment, we suggest avoiding aspirin or other products that could thin your blood.
You will need to pause any blood-thinning medications prescribed by your doctor. We’ll discuss this with you in your consultation to make sure it’s safe for you. If not, we have other options we can recommend. If you have any questions or concerns about what to do before your treatment session, don’t hesitate to ask us. We’re here to help you prepare and make the most of your treatment.
