Ready to learn more, read on to gain ample information about Juvederm fillers.
What are Juvederm fillers and what do they do?
As we age, our bodies tend to lose its naturally collagen and elastin, often resulting a loose, saggy skin without the ability to sport the youth and radiance we desire. Our skin becomes thinner, dryer and less likely to heal itself with a diminish in our Hyaluronic acid stores. Wrinkles emerge, more often than not, accompanied with fine lines and a loss of elasticity. This is where Juvederm dermal fillers come in.
With the ability to smoothen and lift targeted folds and wrinkles, Juvederm fillers are able to add subtle yet efficient volume of specialized hyaluronic acid to bring about the needed differences in a person’s appearance, delivering results that reintroduce youthful appearance, radiance and freshness.
Juvederm has widespread application for treating soft and deep facial folds and wrinkles that may appear across the face. It is also effective for treating acne scars as well as plump lines. Juvederm are largely applied for reduction of fine lines across the forehead and the brow and can be used to enhance cheek volume, jaw line and fill in hollows below the eye.
Juvederm is available in a wide array of formulations include Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Vollure, Juvederm Voluma and Juvederm Volbella. All formulations contain Hyaluronic acid as the primary substance as well as other skin-enriching and structure-benefitting substances. Juvederm is effective at ridding the face of superficial lines and its effects can last for at least 8 months. The filler may span up to 12 months in some cases. Some versions of the Juvederm formulation also contains lidocaine, a substance present in the Juvederm fillers that improves patient comfort and makes the injection process far less painful.
The Hyaluronic acid serves to hold water at the site of injection and functions as a cushioning agent, adding volume and delivering a smoother appearance to the face and skin. More often than not, more than one treatment will be required to get optimal results.
What makes Juvederm fillers effective?
Juvederm products maintain a smooth consistency that is not frequently found in other products. Some products have granular consistency that may affect the consistency and smoothness of the process. Juvederm products boast of a “Hyalcross” technology that allows the production and application of a smoother, malleable gel that has been shown to affect the outcome of the procedure.
How do Juvederm Fillers work
As earlier mentioned, Juvederm fillers are primary composed of Hyaluronic acid. The treatment procedure will typically be carried out by injecting the product into the targeted areas using a tiny needle. The Hyaluronic acid, on entering the skin works to augment the imperfections and changes caused by aging. Depending on the area injected and the aim of the fillers, the Juvederm fillers add depth and volume to the affected areas, plumping the skin, improving the elasticity and clearing lines and wrinkles.
The results of the treatment procedure are quick and fast. Although there may be very little lingering discomfort, the treatment procedure itself leaves no scars and can be applied to treat multiple issues from fine line to deeper skin depressions.
Owing to recent developments and innovations, Juvederm solutions can also be used to add extra volume to the lips, making it safer than previous lip augmentation procedures.
What can you expect after the Juvederm filler injection?
There may be a handful of side effects that follow even a professional treatment of Juvederm filler injections. You should try to avoid strenuous exercises, alcoholic beverages and excessive exposure to the sun or heat. This is because a disposition to any of these can cause temporary swelling, redness or itching at the site of the injection.
If you experience any symptoms of swelling, use a pack of ice over the affected area and confirm how long it can take before you can start wearing makeup again.
The side effects, which may vary from person to person are mild in nature and will last for 7 or less days. The following side effects may be experienced and are perfectly normal post-treatment:
- Mild pain
- Lump or bumps
- Redness or
If you experience any of the side effects above for more than 7 days at most, please refer to a dermatologist professional to evaluate the causes or any allergic reaction that you may be experiencing.
How often should you take filler injections?
Depending on the aims of the treatment and the area to be treated, you may need to take Juvederm filler injections at least twice to get optimal results. The type of treatment being opted for will also determine the number of treatments to suffice for desired outcome. For instance, treatment requiring cheek fillers to obtain a particular volume can differ from a treatment for under the eyes. Since correction with Juvederm is not permanent, Re-injections will usually be needed between 9 to 12 months from initial treatment while smaller volumes of injection may be used.
