Injectable dermal fillers are used to restore your natural beauty. Juvederm is one of the most popular lines of dermal fillers because it has been FDA-approved for many years and the results are long-lasting. Today, our experts at Tarola Plastic Surgery in Murfreesboro, TN are discussing everything you need to know about this incredible anti-aging treatment.
Does Juvederm Work Right Away?
Yes, Juvederm works right away. As soon as the dermal filler is injected, it starts to spread throughout the treatment area, volumizing it. That said, the final results of this treatment are not immediately apparent. The filler needs time to settle fully and take full effect. Therefore, you should expect your final results to become apparent a few days after your injections.
You should also understand hyaluronic encourages your skin to produce extra collagen. This leads to further improvements in the hydration, tone, and texture of your skin. Again, it takes several weeks for these benefits to develop fully.
The Line of Fillers
Some of the words people use to describe the Juvederm family include safe, effective, and predictable. Each formulation contains the primary ingredient hyaluronic acid, sometimes referred to as HA.
That said, each formula is unique in the concentration of HA present and how the HA molecules are bonded during the manufacturing process. Each formula was designed carefully to be particularly effective in a different region of the face.
What These Fillers Do
Jointly, these injectables can erase lines and wrinkles, restore volume, augment thin or hollow features and improve contours. They are popular alternatives to facelifts due to how quickly the results become apparent.
Ultra XC is a colorless gel with a pudding-like consistency. It is the perfect solution for people with thin or asymmetrical lips. Depending on your desired aesthetic, this filler may be injected inside the lips, along the cupid’s bow, or on the vermilion border. That said, it isn’t used exclusively to augment the lips. It can also be used to:
- Minimize scars around the mouth
- Erase nasolabial folds
- Restore volume beneath the eyes
- Erase marionette lines
Voluma XC is the most recent addition to the Juvederm family. This incredibly durable filler was designed to augment and lift the cheeks. It can also be used to improve the contours of the cheekbones.
Furthermore, it is the only FDA-approved dermal filler that can be used to treat concerns related to the cheeks and chin. Thanks to the thick consistency of this filler, it can be massaged gently after injection so it contours to the unique shape of your face.
How Long Do the Results of This Treatment Last?
The formula is one of many factors affecting how long the results of this treatment lasts. For example, if you receive Ultra XC injections, you can expect your lips to remain perfectly plump for a year.
Additionally, you can expect your nose and mouth to remain wrinkle-free for at least 12 months. You can expect your cheeks to remain augmented for two years if you receive Voluma injections.
Each Juvederm formula comprises HA-based gel with a smooth consistency. This provides results that look far more natural than the results of fillers with granular gels. This allows us to provide you with the following benefits:
- Added definition
- Seamlessly corrected folds
- Flawlessly erased lines and wrinkles
- Authentic contours
When you opt for Juvederm injections, you can rest assured your results will look completely natural. In other words, nobody will know you had professional help to look as young and healthy as you will after treatment.
People often refer to this line of dermal fillers as “next-generation” because the risk of an allergic reaction is mitigated. In the past, HA was derived from animal sources. Unfortunately, there is a risk of developing an allergic reaction to animal-derived hyaluronic acid. There is no such risk with Juvederm formulas.
Since this line of dermal fillers is hypoallergenic, you don’t need to take an allergy scratch-test and wait for the results to see if you’re a good fit for this treatment.
One of the most compelling advantages associated with this line of fillers is the consistency of the results. Each filler we offer is FDA-approved for efficacy, so you can rest assured your concerns will be corrected after treatment. Additionally, you can feel confident your results will look natural because it stimulates your skin’s own restorative properties.
Skin Quality Improvement
As mentioned previously, hyaluronic acid encourages your skin to produce collagen. In turn, collagen ignites elastin production. This is important because hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin are essential for keeping your skin healthy and youthful in appearance.
