Everything You Need to Know About Juvederm Facial Fillers
Used for everything from plumping lips to smoothing out wrinkles, Juvederm is one of the most popular facial fillers on the market. If you’re looking to add volume back to your face, continue reading for everything you need to know about Juvederm.
What Juvederm Facial Filler Does
Approved by the FDA, Juvederm can make your lips look fuller, the wrinkles around your mouth and nose softer, and add volume to flatter cheeks.
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler – a substance that occurs naturally within the skin. As a person ages, the levels of hyaluronic acid in their skin can diminish significantly, which can result in more intense wrinkling and volume loss, two of the main motivators for Troy, MI patients to pursue facial fillers such as Juvederm.
Losing volume in one’s face is one of the biggest contributors towards looking older. But with the aid of injectable facial fillers such as Juvederm, Troy, MI patients are able to look healthier, happier, and more youthful than ever before.
Where Juvederm Facial filler can be Injected
As the temple, lips, and cheeks are among the most susceptible to volume loss with age, many Troy, MI patients choose to have Juvederm injected in these areas.
Nasolabial folds (the scientific term for “smile lines”) can also be treated with Juvederm, as can wrinkles at the corners of your mouth and the creases that run along your chin and up to your mouth (sometimes called “marionette lines.”)
Types of Juvederm Facial Fillers
Juvederm facial fillers are available in a variety of different types that have been designed to meet the needs of Troy, MI patients with a wide range of skin concerns.
Juvederm XC and Juvederm Vollure XC are used to soften and add volume to parentheses lines around the mouth and nose. Juvederm Vollure XC for as long as 1.5 years. Juvederm Voluma XC, on the other hand, is used to add volume to the temples and cheeks, and has been proven to last as long as two years.
For Troy, MI patients looking to smooth out vertical lip lines and finer lines surrounding the eyes, consider Juvederm Volbella XC, which can also treat under-eye bags. To achieve plumper lips or to smooth out parentheses lines, consider Juvederm Ultra XC, which lasts up to a year and can also be implemented to fill the nose.
The Juvederm Facial Filler Treatment
The amount of time it takes to complete a Juvederm facial filler procedure depends on the treatment area, and can take as little as fifteen minutes, and usually no more than an hour. Juvederm does not require anesthesia, however topical anesthetic may be applied for a more comfortable experience. Following the injection of the Juvederm facial filler, the treatment area will usually be gently massaged and soothed with ice. After that, the treatment is complete, and you’ll be ready to enter the world feeling more youthful and confident than ever.
Juverderm Facial Filler Results
One of the many advantages of Juvederm facial fillers is that, in most cases, results are visible immediately following treatment. While you may notice some swelling or redness following the treatment, in most cases, this doesn’t last particularly long.
