Everything You Need to Know About Juvederm Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are an extremely popular cosmetic treatment for women and men looking to combat common signs of ageing.
The best dermal fillers have the power to reduce the visibility of wrinkles, restore contours, and revitalize the face when injected into the skin. And Juvederm dermal fillers are perhaps the most well-known on the market, with a reputation for excellence.
But what are Juvederm dermal fillers, and how do they work?
What are Juvederm Dermal Fillers?
Several types of Juvederm fillers are available, all containing hyaluronic acid. The fillers themselves feel smooth and have a consistency similar to gel.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring and combines with water within the skin to restore elasticity and tone. Juvederm’s manufacturers utilize patented technology to make sure the fillers blend with sub-dermal tissue successfully. This helps to achieve the natural look for which the brand is known.
The wide variety of Juvederm products are designed to address different age-related aesthetic issues, such as sagging skin or wrinkles.
For example, Juvederm Voluma XC restores volume under the surface of the skin to enhance the cheeks’ size. This can bring a more youthful appearance to the entire face and cultivate a refreshed look.
Alternatively, Juvederm Vollure VC is injected into target areas to improve skin elasticity and smooth out wrinkles or lines surrounding the mouth.
Juvederm Ultra XC may be injected into the lips to restore plumpness and shape.
An expert selects the fillers best suited to the individual’s goals and injects them beneath the skin’s surface. This may involve one or more target areas, depending on the condition of the skin and loss of volume. This treatment tends to be simple and lasts from 15 - 60 minutes based on the number of injections required.
What are the benefits of Juvederm Dermal Fillers?
Juvederm injections offer the following benefits:
● Restore volume in the cheeks and lips to achieve a more youthful aesthetic
● Reduce the visibility of lines surrounding the eyes and mouth
● Increase the definition of the jawline and chin
● Lift the cheeks for greater definition
● Restore facial contours and combat sagging skin
● Add lift to eyebrows
● Cultivate a revitalized look that leaves the skin on the face glowing
● No downtime required after treatment — carry on with the rest of your day as normal
One core factor driving Juvederm’s popularity is the natural results it achieves. These dermal fillers don’t restrict facial muscle movement or expressions.
While people are extremely likely to notice a positive change in your appearance, they may not realize that you have had a cosmetic treatment. This is a big benefit for anyone who wants to keep their procedure discreet.
Another benefit of Juvederm injections is the presence of lidocaine in each injection. This helps to minimize the discomfort you may experience during the treatment and ensure a more satisfying experience.
Finally, Juvederm dermal fillers are biodegradable. So, if you decide that the results aren’t quite what you had in mind over time (which is highly unlikely), the fillers will break down across a number of months anyway.
How often will I need Juvederm injections?
Juvederm dermal fillers tend to last for varying periods. But people tend to enjoy the benefits of their injections for between six and 24 months.
The length of time is affected by a number of factors, such as the type of Juvederm product used, the amount injected, and how quickly your body metabolizes the filler.
As a result, the frequency of subsequent injections may differ from one person to another. Generally, though, re-injections could be required from nine to 12 months after the initial session. The injections’ volume is typically smaller in follow-up injections.
You’ll be given more detailed guidance on your Juvederm treatment after one of our experts has examined your face and discussed your goals during your free consultation.
What should I expect after my Juvederm injections?
Injecting Juvederm dermal fillers is minimally invasive and demands no downtime for recovery. Fortunately, the vast majority of Juvederm injection sessions last no longer than one hour and leave you comfortable enough to go about your business.
That’s in stark contrast to some more complex cosmetic treatments which require patients to book one or more weeks away from work to recuperate.
You might go back to work. You might see a friend. You might watch a movie. Your injections should not affect any of your plans.
However, there are certain points to consider as you prepare for your Juvederm fillers:
● Avoid any strenuous exercise
● Avoid drinking alcohol
● Avoid prolonged exposure to heat and sunlight
Why? Because all three can cause your blood vessels to dilate and worsen any bruising which may occur (see below).
But don’t worry: it’s likely that you’ll only need to abstain from exercise, alcohol, and sunlight for 24 hours.
What are the risks of Juvederm injections?
Juvederm fillers bring a number of potential risks, as with virtually any form of cosmetic treatment. You should be aware of these while preparing for your injections, even though they’re unlikely to occur:
● Tenderness in the treated areas
● Mild bruising
● Itching of the skin
● Redness of varying degrees
● Mild, temporary pain
● Bumps or lumps in treated areas
● Discoloration of the skin
All of the above side effects typically last no longer than two to four weeks. These can be discussed in greater detail during your free personal consultation with a member of our expert team.
