What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler designed for aesthetic injections. In 2006, it was approved by FDA as a safe product to address wrinkles, facial folds and loss of fat and tissue volume. Allergan, the manufacturer of Botox, is also the manufacturer and the distributor of Juvederm. This product line is meant to treat hollowness, wrinkles and folds in certain parts of the face, such as the under eye hollows, cheeks, nasolabial folds (also known as smile lines), lips, chin, jawline, and deep wrinkles. Being an expert in cosmetic and laser medicine with years of rich experience, Dr. Schwarzburg is known as one of the best NYC injectors, which makes Miracle Face a go-to clinic for Juvederm injections.
Juvederm has an advanced formulation of hyaluronic acid and can be used on different skin types for natural looking results. This is what has made Juvederm injections so very popular over the last 10 years. Aging is accompanied with loss of collagen and elastin, which can not be naturally replaced. However, Juvederm injections can replace the loss of tissue volume caused by the deficiency of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin in the natural body stock and enhance facial features creating a more youthful appearance.
There is a wide variety of Juvederm fillers with slightly different formulations, each of which is tailored to perfectly address very specific treatment areas and patient needs. The Juvederm line includes Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, Juvederm Voluma XC, JUvederm Vollure, Juvederm Volbella, and Juvederm Volite.
What Is the Difference Between Juvederm and Botox?
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler approved by FDA. It is used to fill in the hollow areas of the face, wrinkles and folds, increasing the volume in those particular areas. Botox is an injectable neurotoxin, again approved by FDA, that relaxes and paralyzes the muscle, restricting muscle contractions. As a result, the appearance and the development of fine lines and wrinkles is reduced or eliminated. The two mentioned procedures have very different purposes and applications, however they can be paired, nicely complementing each other for better results.
The Juvederm Line of Facial Fillers
Juvederm Ultra: Juvederm Ultra helps restore facial volume lost in the middle and lower part of the face. Juvederm Ultra CS is mainly used to address nasolabial folds (or smile lines), marionette lines, and lips.
Juvederm Ultra Plus: Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is used to tackle moderate to severe facial folds, like nasolabial folds (or smile lines) and marionette lines. It contains lidocaine which makes the whole injection procedure more tolerable and can be selected as a lip enhancement filler.
Juvederm Voluma: As the name suggests, Juvederm Voluma is used to give extra volume. It is mainly designed for facial contouring and is usually injected in the cheek, chin, and jowl area, as well as other hollow facial regions to replace lost volume giving the face a touch of youthfulness. Apart from its main application, Juvederm Voluma can also be used to tackle acne scars filling the lost volume and collagen in atrophic acne scars.
Juvederm Vollure: Juvederm Vollure is popular for the long-term effect it provides. The results with Juvederm Vollure may last up to 18 months when the majority of other fillers give a maximum one year effect. Juvederm Vollure is mostly injected into the nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines.
Juvederm Volbella: Juvederm Volbella is designed for subtle enhancements in more delicate areas, like fine lines and wrinkles, under eyes (also called tear troughs), and the lips. The primary purpose of Juvederm Volbella is under eye rejuvenation. However, it can also be used to address acne scars, restoring the lost volume and collagen in atrophic acne scars.
Juvederm Volite: Juvederm Volite is used to improve the overall skin quality by increasing elasticity and hydration and reducing fine lines.
What Are the Advantages of Juvederm Voluma?
As years go by we lose collagen and fatty tissue in our skin and faces resulting in facial volume loss. The hollowness caused by volume loss makes us look older and especially affects the midface, under the eyes, and cheeks. Volume loss can bring forth sagginess which is another obvious sign of aging. The primary purpose of Juvederm Voluma is to fill in the hollow area and add volume to the face, making it look fuller and younger.
What is the Difference Between Juvederm Voluma and Juvederm Ultra?
Both Juvederm Voluma and Juvederm Ultra are designed to address the hollow areas and deep folds in the face by filling them in. Juvederm Ultra is perfect for nasolabial folds, while it can also be used for lip enhancement. Dr. Schwarzburg selects the most appropriate Juvederm filler based on the particular case to meet the patient’s individual goals and to best fit their facial features.
How Long Does the Effect of Juvederm Voluma Last?
The results achieved by Juvederm Voluma can last from 9 to 12 months. The longevity of the results depends on the number of syringes used and the pace of the patient’s metabolism. Thus, the duration of Juvederm Voluma results may vary from person to person.
What Is the Price of Juvederm Voluma?
The cost of Juvederm Voluma depends on the treatment area, how many syringes are used, the geographical location of the clinic, and the level of expertise of the injector. A board certified cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist is likely to charge more than a nurse or aesthetician at a medical spa.
Is It Possible to Combine Juvederm Voluma with Other Procedures?
Juvederm Voluma can be paired with a number of different treatments and fillers. For certain treatment areas, it can actually be combined with Botox aimed at elimination or reduction of fine lines and wrinkles by means of facial muscle relaxation. Juvederm Voluma can also be combined with such medical grade skin tightening treatments as Secret RF microneedling or Fraxel laser. The only precondition for combining Juvederm Voluma with other treatments, like Botox injections or skin tightening procedures, is injecting them after other procedures to prevent product migration.
Does Juvederm Voluma Help With Acne Scars?
It is possible to treat acne scars with Juvederm Voluma. Massive acne scarring causes volume loss and creates small indents. Juvederm Voluma can be used as a replacement for this lost tissue, restoring the volume in the treatment area. Conditioned by the severity of the scarring, Dr. Schwarzburg can choose to start the treatment with a Secret RF microneedling procedure and complement it with a Fraxel Dual laser treatment in order to smooth out and refine the skin via fractional thermal ablation. Should there still be deep acne scars after these treatments, Juvederm Voluma may be used to correct remaining indentations.
What is Juvederm Ultra Plus?
Juvederm Ultra Plus is a cosmetic gel from the Juvederm line manufactured by Allergan and approved by FDA. This is a hyaluronic acid based gel that is used to treat loss of volume and wrinkles. Being one the five Juvederm products, Juvederm Ultra Plus is mainly used for lip enhancements. Its consistency is more dense and provides extra volume and structure. Dr. Schwarzburg may choose to use Juvederm Ultra Plus or some other dermal filler in order to add volume to the lips, if that is the ultimate goal of the patient and the look they are trying to accomplish. Juvederm Ultra Plus is the same product as Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, however containing less lidocaine. Filler containing lidocaine typically makes the injection process more tolerable, but isn’t usually a deal breaker if not present.
What is Juvederm Ultra Plus Designed for?
Juvederm Ultra Plus is primarily designed to make the lips voluminous and to fill in the deep folds around the mouth such as the smile lines, also called nasolabial folds, and the marionette lines (the lines from the corners of the mouth to the chin). Juvederm Ultra Plus can also be injected into the chin, temples, cheeks, and jowls.
Does Juvederm Ultra Plus Have Any Side Effects?
Juvederm Ultra Plus is a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler, making its possible side effects the same as with any other hyaluronic acid based filler: redness, swelling, bruising and formation of granulomas are all possible, but treatable and temporary. After the procedure you will be given an ice pack to reduce swelling. Dr. Schwarzburg advises applying a warm compress and arnica gel 24 hours after the procedure if there is any bruising; this will facilitate the healing process of the body. Ulceration and vision impairment are among the very rare severe side effects that only occur when the injections are administered improperly. This is the reason why it is critical to have your treatment carried out by a board certified medical professional such as Dr. Schwarzburg. This is a preventive measure to avoid these severe side effects.
How Long Does the Effect of Juvederm Ultra Plus Last?
The typical longevity of a Juvederm Ultra Plus injection result is from 9 to 12 months. It mostly depends on the amount of injected filler and the treatment area.

What Is the Price of a Juvederm Ultra Plus Syringe? And What Is the Price of a Juvederm Ultra Plus Treatment?

What is Juvederm Volbella?
Juvederm Volbella is another hyaluronic acid based Juvederm filler used for lip enhancements and approved by FDA. Juvederm Volbella is a very well-known lip filler in high demand. Through VyCross technology it achieves very smooth results that tend to last longer. The appearance of the lips injected with Juvederm Volbella is smooth and very natural, because it is softer and thinner than most hyaluronic acid fillers. That is why it is so popular among Juvederm lip injections.
Juvederm Volbella can also address fine lines and smoker’s lines – the wrinkles around the mouth. Because it does not create a lot of inflammation, subtle lip enhancement is its primary application. It also works very well to correct lost volume under the eyes of patients with thin skin.
Who Is the Manufacturer of Volbella?
The manufacturer and the distributor of Juvederm Volbella is Allergan – the same company that manufactures Botox, Kybella, and CoolSculpting. It is a well known company that creates some of the best medical cosmetic products on the market using innovative technologies.

Juvederm Ultra VS Juvederm Volbella
Juvederm has a whole line of dermal fillers, each specified for a specific purpose and for certain areas. Both Juvederm Volbella and Juvederm Ultra are well known as lip fillers. The main difference between these two Juvederm fillers is the texture. Juvederm Ultra has a denser texture, and as a result gives more volume and causes more swelling. As for Juvederm Volbella, it creates a very smooth and natural looking result via Vycross technology. The choice between these two is made based on the desired result.
What Is the Price of Juvederm Volbella?

A board certified doctor is likely to charge more than a nurse practitioner or an aesthetician. In New York City, 1 syringe of Juvederm Volbella may cost anywhere from $800 to $1300. The things you need to consider is the experience of the doctor who is carrying out the procedure, as well as the complexity of your anatomy. In some cases you may need more than 1 syringe for optimal results.
Does Juvederm Volbella Last Longer than Juvederm Ultra Plus?
The minimum longevity of Juvederm Volbella is a year. As for Juvederm Ultra Plus, it typically lasts from 9 to 12 months. The time varies based on the amount of the filler and how your body responds to the treatment. Juvederm Volbella tends to last longer than Juvederm Ultra Plus.
What is Juvederm Vollure?
Juvederm Vollure is a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler from the Juvederm family. It is approved by the FDA and is meant to address fine lines and wrinkles, as well as volume loss in some parts of the face. It is typically applied in the middle part of the face to fill in the fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, nasolabial folds, and cheeks. It contains both high and low molecular weight, so it can treat lines and wrinkles without restricting the natural movement and mobility in the face.
What Are the Advantages of Juvederm Vollure?
Juvederm Vollure is popular for the longevity of its results. It is one of the longest lasting hyaluronic acid based fillers with an average longevity of 18 months. Such a long term effect results from Vycross technology that creates resistance to degradation by tissue enzymes.The long lasting results make it a great option for nasolabial fold treatment. Juvederm Vollure also contains lidocaine which makes the injection process a lot less painful.
What is the Application of Juvederm Vollure?
Juvederm Vollure is perfect at treating moderate to severe lines and wrinkles in the mid face, such as the smile lines. It has both low and high molecular weight and works by retaining water molecules in its intermolecular lattice and fills in a maintainable degree of tissue volume. As a result, Juvederm Vollure also provides some lifting effect that helps to create more natural and flexible results.
How Long Do Juvederm Vollure Results Last?
Juvederm Vollure is among the hyaluronic acid based fillers that give longer lasting results. Juvederm Vollure owes the longevity of its results to the Vycross molecular linking technology used in the product. The filler typically lasts as long as 18 months which is the most highly demanded option especially for nasolabial folds.
How Many Juvederm Vollure Injection Sessions Are Necessary for Optimal Results?
Typically, one session of Juvederm Vollure treatment will suffice for optimal results. However, it largely depends on the results you are trying to achieve in the first place. Dr. Schwarzburg has adopted a “less is more” approach when it comes to dermal fillers in order to avoid overfilling the face. Juvederm Vollure results typically last up to 18 months, so you will not need a retouch treatment until its effects subside. There are patients, however, who prefer to undergo touch up treatments once in every 12 months to maintain the best possible results.
How Are Juvederm Injections Carried Out?
First of all you will need to schedule a personalized consultation with Dr. Schwarzburg, which is a great opportunity to raise all your questions and concerns related to the treatment, as well as discuss the treatment areas and procedural options with a board-certified doctor. Dr. Schwarzburg will guide you through the optimal treatment plan for you, based on your unique case, medical history, skin type, goals, and concerns. You will get your Juvederm injections either immediately after the consultation or will schedule for a different day and time that works for both you and Dr. Schwarzburg.
Before the treatment Dr. Schwarzburg recommends you take two Tylenols to decrease the level of discomfort during the procedure. You will also be instructed to avoid blood thinners that can cause excess bleeding and bruising. 15 – 20 minutes prior to your injections
Dr. Schwarzburg may apply a topical lidocaine based numbing cream on the treatment area that will be sanitized in advance. This is another measure taken to reduce any possible discomfort. The area will again be sanitized after the removal of the numbing cream in order to avoid any possible infection.
Depending on the number of syringes, the procedure will likely take up to 30 minutes. The injections themselves are relatively quick and painless. After the injections, Dr. Schwarzburg will give you an ice pack to apply on the treatment area for the rest of the day. Make sure you do not rub or touch the skin for 3 – 5 days, stay away from heat, extreme sun exposure, and exercise as preventive measures to avoid excessive swelling. In the event of bruising, you will be advised to apply a warm compress and arnica gel until the bruising subsides.
What Will Be My Experience During the Treatment?
The treatment process does not take long and is relatively painless. There are Juvederm fillers that contain lidocaine which makes the injections more tolerable. In some cases this will be supplemented by a topical numbing cream that Dr. Schwarzburg will apply to the treatment area 15 – 20 minutes prior to the procedure to reduce and prevent the possible discomfort. The treatment will be carried out by a technique that Dr. Schwarzburg will choose based on your specific case. The injection process will take 20 – 30 minutes with immediate results. Bruising and swelling are among the possible side effects that may not allow you to see the results right away. In case of bruising and swelling you will be advised to apply an ice pack for the rest of the first day, and a warm compress on the following days until the bruising subsides.
Is Juvederm Painful?
The majority of patients do not experience a lot of pain during Juvederm injections. Conditioned by your pain tolerance the procedure may cause some discomfort and pain. However, there are Juvederm fillers containing lidocaine that will reduce the possibility of discomfort. Depending on the treatment area, a topical numbing cream may also help to additionally reduce discomfort. Another measure to make the overall process even more tolerable for you is taking two Tylenols prior to the treatment.
Are Juvederm Results Visible Immediately After the Procedure?
The effect of Juvederm injections can be seen immediately after the procedure if there is no bruising and swelling. In case of bruising and swelling, the results will be obscurely visible. Wait for up to two weeks and you will be able to fully enjoy the final outcome of the procedure. To speed up the healing process you can apply an ice pack to the treated area on the day of the procedure and a warm compress on the following days until the side effects subside. If your Juvederm results are planned for a special event, Dr. Schwarzburg advises undergoing the treatment 2 – 4 weeks before the event to be on the safe side should there be any unforeseen bruising or swelling.
How Much Will It Take the Juvederm Results to Be Seen?
The effect of Juvederm injections can be visible right after the procedure as the filler spreads and fills in the hollowness in the face. There can be cases in which some bruising and swelling occur, making it harder to observe the final results. In order to help your body heal quicker you can apply an ice pack on the treatment area on day one of the treatment and a warm compress and arnica gel on the next days for the bruising.
How Long Does the Effect of Dermal Fillers Such as Juvederm Last?
The answer to this question mainly depends on the type of Juvederm filler used, the amount of the filler, and the patient’s response to the filler. While some patients hold on to results for longer, others may metabolize the filler quicker, leaving them with results that do not last as long. The average longevity of Juvederm fillers is 9 – 12 months.
How Safe Is Juvederm?
In 2006 Juvederm was FDA approved as a safe and effective material to treat tissue volume loss, as well as deep facial wrinkles and folds. As with any other procedure, there is a risk of possible side effects, which are rare and mostly treatable. The number one way to bypass those risks and side effects is by being treated by a board certified cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist who has extensive experience and expertise to administer Juvederm injections in a safe and effective manner.
What Side Effects Should I Expect from Juvederm Injections?
In general, Juvederm injections require little to no recovery time. To be on the safe side and reduce possible bruising and swelling you should avoid exercising and heat for 2 to 3 days. It also helps to apply an ice pack to the treated area on the day of the treatment and a warm compress on the following days.
Bruising, discoloration, tyndall effect, irritation, lumps or bumps, pruritus, and tenderness are all possible side effects of Juvederm injections. However, all of them can be reduced and eliminated with proper treatment. One thing that can notably mitigate the risk of the mentioned side effects is having your treatment administered by a board certified and well-experienced physician or plastic surgeon such as Dr. Schwarzburg.
Means to Avoid Bruising from Injectables
The number one step to avoid bruising is to stop using any blood thinners such as Aspirin and Motrin, as well as any other supplements that may cause bruising two weeks prior to your procedure. Alcohol and cigarettes can also increase bruising if used within two weeks before the treatment. In the event of actual bruising, a warm compress and arnica gel will facilitate the healing process.
Can I Exercise after Juvederm?
You can go back to your workouts 48 hours after your Juvederm treatment. Any time before then may increase the swelling and bruising in the treated area and cause filler displacement.
Which Part of the Face Can Be Treated by Juvederm?
Juvederm is designed to replace lost facial volume, enhance existing features or fill in fine lines, wrinkles, and creases in certain parts of the face. Lips, fine lines and wrinkles, also known as smokers lines or vertical lip lines, corners of the mouth, marionette lines (the lines from the corners of the mouth down to the chin), nasolabial area, tear trough (under eyes), chin, temples, hands, cheeks, jawline, neck, as well as acne and surgical scars can be filled in using Juvederm.
Volume Loss Caused by Aging and the Liquid Face Lift
Aging is accompanied by significant reduction in the natural hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin in our bodies. These three are responsible for the youthfulness of our skin. When our bodies start to lose collagen and hyaluronic acid, it becomes noticeable on the face as it loses volume, especially under the eyes and cheeks. Hyaluronic acid fillers are meant to replace the lost volume and to fill in the wrinkles, lines, and folds that come with age. This process is also known as a liquid face lift because it rejuvenates and brings youthfulness back to the skin without invasive means such as surgery.
Juvederm Lip Fillers
Within the last ten years lip augmentation has become a highly popular procedure not only by celebrities and social media influencers but also the general public. There are different lip enhancement techniques, each of which is designed to achieve a certain result. Some patients want radical changes, such as the Kylie Jenner style, others give preference to adding just a little bit of volume for a more subtle result.
When it comes to lip augmentations, Juvederm is one of the most popular fillers as it is based on hyaluronic acid and is versatile. It adds volume and creates fuller lips. However, apart from lips, Juvederm can also be injected around the lip area to address fine lines and wrinkles, sometimes called smoker’s lines and perioral lines as they are mainly caused by smoking, aging, and sun damage. Juvederm Volbella is designed particularly for these lines; in addition to line elimination it also adds a little volume to the area.
With aging even full lips become smaller as a result of collagen and moisture loss. Juvederm fillers help restore this lost volume and give the lips their former youthfulness and hydration, or even more.
How Should I Choose a Lip Filler?
Your choice should be based on the kind of end result you would like to achieve. If you prefer a fuller look, then you should select Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, or Juvederm Vollure. If you are for more natural looking lips then Juvederm Volbella may be the best option. The best way to approach a lip filler is to allow a well-educated and experienced doctor to select the filler for you in order to bypass any undesirable results.
Which is the Best Juvederm for Lips?
All Juvederm fillers can be applied to the lips, but for the most part, Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Ultra, and Juvederm Ultra Plus are used on the lips. The choice largely depends on the end result you seek to achieve. Based on that, Dr. Schwarzburg will choose the most appropriate dermal filler for you.
How Many Juvederm Syringes Are Needed for Lip Injections?
In order to decide the number of Juvederm syringes for a lip enhancement, you will need to take into consideration your desired end result, as well as the type of Juvederm filler. The average number of syringes for most patients ranges from 1 to 3. One syringe is standard, three syringes will give you more dramatic results.
Is Juvederm Voluma Designed for Lips?
There is a whole line of Juvederm products, each of which is developed for a certain purpose and for particular areas of the face. If the lips are very thin, and don’t have volume and clear structure, then Juvederm Voluma can be used in the lips. It has high density and viscosity and can achieve dramatic eversion and height increase for both the upper and lower lips. With Juvederm Voluma the lips will feel harder and more rubbery to the touch in comparison to other lip fillers. Voluma’s most common application is in the cheek area, however it can be used for lip augmentation as well, if it matches your unique needs.
Which Juvederm Will Work Best for Getting Lips Like Those of Kim Kardashian’s?
Juvederm Ultra Plus is a filler that belongs to the Juvederm family and adds more volume and definition when compared to other fillers. Nonetheless, more than two syringes may be necessary for a fuller look.
What Is the Cost of Juvederm for the Lips?
The pricing of Juvederm injections for the lips depends on the amount of filler needed, the type of Juvederm filler, the geographical location of the clinic you will be treated at, as well as the qualifications and expertise of your injector. Depending on the look you want to achieve and the complexity of your anatomy, one syringe of Juvederm Ultra injected by a board certified plastic surgeon in New York or Los Angeles is likely to cost anywhere from $800 to $1500. There are medical centers that make discounts if more then one syringe is needed or if you pair lip fillers with other procedures.
Cheek Enhancement with Juvederm Voluma
Aging causes collagen, elastin, and fat loss in our faces. As a result, we lose fat and tissue volume in our cheeks and other areas of the face that bring on deflation, flatter facial features, and give away older age, especially if there is also volume loss under the eyes. Juvederm Voluma is an FDA approved filler that treats hollowness in the cheeks by restoring the lost collagen and volume in the treatment area. The effect of Juvederm Voluma lasts up to 12 months, making it a great product to add volume to the hollow parts of the face.
Jaw Contouring and Juvederm Voluma
Lack of jawline definition caused by genetics, bone structure, fat, or loose skin is a problem faced by many. Juvederm Voluma is perfect at tackling this issue, lifting the jowls and adding some volume for a lifted and tightened effect, resulting in a well defined jawline. When injected in the jawline area, Juvederm will create a more chiseled and defined look from a side profile perspective. Dr. Schwarzburg commonly combines this treatment with Botox injections or other neurotoxins such as Dysport in the masseters to slim down the jaw area. He also uses Botox in the neck bands to address and prevent the formation of wrinkles and lines around the neck.
If there is a significant amount of fat present around the chin and jawline, Dr. Schwarzburg recommends a Kybella or CoolSculpting treatment before Juvederm Ultra injections in the jaw, for better and more visible results. Another procedure that helps shape the jawline is PDO thread lift, which is a non surgical face lift designed to lift loose and sagging skin and tighten the treatment area.
Chin Enhancement and Juvederm Voluma
Dermal fillers are popular for lip enhancements, under eye, and cheek injections. However, there is another area that can largely benefit from a filler treatment and that is often neglected: the chin. It goes hand in hand with the jaw and can also be injected with Juvederm Voluma. JuvedermVoluma will give the chin more prominence and a more projected profile view as well as evening out any present asymmetry in the face. The majority of people tend to choose this minimally invasive option over surgical implants. The latter is an incredibly invasive method involving additional risks and side effects as well as long recovery time. Dr. Schwarzburg sometimes chooses to perform CoolSculpting or Kybella treatments before chin fillers, to eliminate the fat around the chin and jawline and to achieve a more defined and prominent shape of the chin.
Treating the Under Eye Area (Tear Troughs) with Juvederm Fillers
Loss of volume under the eyes is very often accompanied by loss of volume in the cheeks. As we age we lose collagen and adipose tissue resulting in an older appearance. The under eye Juvederm filler helps replace the lost volume, and rejuvenates and refreshes the skin and the overall face. Sometimes the under eye hollows create an impression of dark circles or discoloration under the eyes when in reality all of that is just a shadow cast by loss of volume in the tear trough. Juvederm Volbella is a great option to treat the tear trough, addressing the hollowness and refreshing one’s overall appearance.
Juvederm and Nasolabial Folds
Nasolabial folds, also called smile lines, are another area on the face that are often overlooked. These folds go down from the nose corner to the corners of the mouth and make you look older. More often than not this is the one of the first areas that shows volume loss in the face. Juvederm fillers are a popular choice to fill in these lines, Juvederm Vollure being one of the most common ones for that particular area. The effects of Juvederm Vollure last up to 18 months. This is a good way to look younger by eliminating or at least reducing the appearance of smile lines.
Is It Allowed to Combine Juvederm with Other Cosmetic Procedures?
Juvederm can be well combined with other cosmetic procedures like other hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane, Radiesse, Belotero, Sculptra, Revanesse, and Teosyal, neurotoxins, such as Botox, Dysport, Xeomin or Jeaveau, and skin tightening treatments, such as Fraxel laser and Secret RF Microneedling as well as skin lifting procedures, such as PDO thread lift.
Juvederm is often paired with Botox and other neurotoxins such as Dysport for prevention and elimination of fine lines and wrinkles in the treatment area and relaxation of other muscles around the jaw and neck.
Juvederm can be enhanced by other fillers, too. It is quite common to inject Restylane Silk filler under the eyes, Juvederm Voluma in the cheeks, Juvederm Ultra in the smile lines and Radiesse for jawline definition.
Sometimes the issue of sagging skin is still present even after a liquid facelift with Juvederm Voluma and other fillers. In such cases a PDO thread lift would be the next logical step to help lift loose skin around the jowls and jawline.
In certain cases the step preceding Juvederm Voluma injections for chin definition and augmentation is getting rid of excess fat in the area. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive cryolipolysis treatment and Kybella is a synthetic version of fat dissolving deoxycholic acid. Both may be used to reduce the stubborn fat around the chin area.
If you plan on getting a skin tightening and acne scar removal treatment, you may get the treatment before you get your fillers to avoid migration of the filler. Some of the most popular treatments include non-ablative fractional laser treatments such as Fraxel Dual, or Secret RF microneedling, which is a fractional microneedling treatment utilizing radiofrequency energy to coagulate the dermal-subdermal layers to stimulate collagen production.
Combination of Dermal Fillers, Laser Treatments and Skin Care for Best Results
Combination treatments can often be the best form of skin care depending on your skin type and the original state of it. Every treatment serves a certain purpose and can be carried out alone or combined with other treatments. It is a common practice for Dr. Schwarzburg to combine different procedures for the most optimal results, such as microneedling and laser treatments such as Fraxel for skin tightening, Botox for reduction and prevention of fine lines and wrinkles by means of muscle relaxation, and dermal fillers for volume restoration through replacement of lost collagen and hyaluronic acid.
Juvederm VS Restylane
The FDA has approved both Juvederm and Restylane as hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers to enhance volume in certain parts of the face and body. These two products are quite similar, the main difference being in their molecule size and chemical composition, thickness and longevity. There is more swelling with Juvederm in comparison to Restylane, though it typically offers more volume. This, however, depends on how the patient responds to each of these fillers. When choosing a specific filler, Dr. Schwarzburg takes into consideration your particular needs, skin thickness, anatomical structure, and the results that you want to achieve.
Which One Is Considered to Be Better: Juvederm or Restylane?
Every filler serves its own specific purpose and it is difficult to make a general statement on which one is better. The comparison should be made on a case level to understand which one will help achieve the desired best result in that specific case. Both Juvederm and Restylane are hyaluronic acid based fillers approved by the FDA and designed to replace lost volume and fill in lines and wrinkles in the face, neck, and hands. Dr. Schwarzburg will be able to determine which filler is the correct one to be injected after a thorough analysis of your case and skin type.
Can Juvederm and Restylane Be Paired?
Both Juvederm and Restylane are hyaluronic acid based fillers that serve the same purposes. Each of them have their own varieties that can be combined in different areas of the face to complement each other. Sometimes one is a better choice than the other depending on the patient’s desired results and facial features. The efficacy of their combination differs from case to case.
Does Smoking Affect Juvederm Injections?
In general, smoking affects the skin in a negative way as it reduces the amount of collagen in it and can also affect the longevity of hyaluronic acid. Smoking also has a tendency of thinning out the skin and postponing the healing process after the injections.
Am I A Good Candidate for Juvederm Injections?
Everyone who is generally in good health is a good candidate for Juvederm dermal fillers. If you seek ways to eliminate deep lines or hollowness in your face then Juvederm is most likely to be an effective solution for you. It can be a good option, too, even when all that you’re looking for is a little bit of volume in your lips or evened out chin or jawline.
