What Can Juvederm Do For You?
- Posted on: Sep 20 2016
Juvederm is a natural, safe injectable that is currently the most popular dermal filler on the market today. So what can Juvederm do for you? See some incredible transformations below to learn the many areas Juvederm is used to treat signs of aging.
The patient above (Connie) received Juvederm Voluma XC to the mid-face to help restore volume in the cheeks and lift the lower face. Voluma is a popular injectable in the Juvederm family that is a thicker formulation specifically designed for the cheek area. It lasts longer than most dermal fillers with at an average of 16-24 months after initial treatment.
She also received Juvederm Ultra XC to add volume to the lips that is often lost during the aging process. Lines around the mouth were smoothed with Juvederm as well. The XC pertains to the lidocaine added to help minimize pain and discomfort with the actual treatment. At Utah Facial Plastics, we provide numbing cream approximately 20-30 minutes prior to treatment as well.
Lillian also received Voluma to the mid-face to lift and restore followed by Juvederm and Juvederm Ultra to remaining wrinkles. As you can see, Juvederm was added to her under-eye “tear troughs” as well so that where the under-eye meets the cheek, it’s completely smooth. The treatment is quick with little to no down-time. Patients may experience swelling, and possibly bruising, for 2-7 days following treatment.
Eva received the same Juvederm products for full-face rejuvenation. Juvederm is made of hyaluronic, acid which is completely safe as it’s naturally found in the skin. It is not a permanent filler, which actually makes it safer and easy to dissolve if, for some reason, a patient is unhappy with the results. There is much less risk involved as semi-permanent and permanent fillers are more prone to cause nodules or granulomas in the skin that have to be surgically removed.
Juvederm is not just for women. Many men receive Juvederm treatments as well, often to the folds around the mouth and in the cheeks. Many Juvederm patients request Botox as well to help smooth lines and wrinkles in the forehead, between the brows, and around the eyes (crow’s feet).
