Juvederm Q & A
What are Juvéderm facial fillers?
Facial fillers, or dermal fillers, offer a noninvasive alternative to traditional facelifts without the surgery, scarring, or enormous bill. The expert team at The Doc Spa uses the FDA-approved line of Juvéderm facial fillers, which use injectable hyaluronic acid gel.
Juvéderm comes from the same company that makes Botox®, the well-established and widely-used treatment for crow’s feet and frown lines. JUVÉDERM® is an injectable gel made from hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in the body that is used by our doctors to soften the deep folds and lines in the face. It plumps areas of the face to create a more youthful appearance.
For a more dramatic effect, you may want to pair a Botox treatment with any combination of Juvéderm’s line of facial fillers, such as:
Designed to lift and contour your cheeks by restoring lost volume, Juvéderm Voluma XC is the only facial filler for cheeks that’s proven to last up to two years.
Juvéderm Vollure XC softens moderate to severe wrinkles and lines around your mouth, including “parentheses” or “marionette lines.” With optimal results, this treatment lasts up to 18 months.
To get plump, sultry lips while smoothing vertical lip lines, Juvéderm Volbella provides results that may last up to one year.
How do Juvéderm fillers work?
As you age, the soft tissue beneath your skin naturally starts to disappear. This creates wrinkles, skin laxity, and a saggy, hollow appearance. Over time, areas of the face naturally lose volume due to the aging process, causing you to lose that youthful look. The pulled-back look of traditional facelifts is fast becoming a thing of the past. Instead, more and more patients are using JUVÉDERM® injectable filler to add volume back to the face.
JUVÉDERM® is injected into the lines and hollows of the face for wrinkle removal that leaves the face smooth and supple. This safe, reliable anti-wrinkle treatment can be injected to create volume in the lips, naso-labial folds, corners of the mouth, tear troughs and more.
Juvéderm restores a youthful contour to your face by filling in the space left by soft-tissue loss, plumping your skin from the inside. These fillers use hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in your body. Hyaluronic acid helps you maintain volume and hydration in your skin.
What makes JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC Different?
JUVÉDERM® is made in several different formulations of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. JUVÉDERM® was first approved as a wrinkle treatment to fill in lines in the naso-labial folds and marionette lines around the mouth.
Since then, doctors have found numerous ways to treat wrinkles using JUVÉDERM®. Today, the cosmetic filler is used to fill in lines under the eyes and even fill in deep acne scars. And now, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC allows Dr. Julian Rowe of The Doc Spa to restore volume to your cheeks!
Who is a good candidate for Juvéderm facial fillers?
The Doc Spa doctors use Juvéderm facial fillers on men and women who want to improve a variety of cosmetic concerns, such as:
- Sagging skin
- Sunken cheeks or temples
- Moderate to severe facial wrinkles and lines
- Smile lines, or parentheses, around the mouth
- Asymmetrical lips
What should I expect from a Juvéderm treatment?
First, your doctor discusses your goals with you and creates an individualized treatment plan during a free consultation.
Before you receive the injections, your doctor numbs the treatment area to minimize discomfort.
Juvéderm is an instant treatment, so you see results immediately. You may experience minor swelling, redness, and discomfort at the treatment site, but these side effects usually fade after about one day. JUVÉDERM® is an instant anti-wrinkle treatment, so you’ll see the fill results immediately after the procedure. The effects of JUVÉDERM® typically last about 9 months, and with the all new JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC results could last up to two years. However, results vary from patient to patient. You shouldn’t require more than a day of downtime after JUVÉDERM® and swelling, numbness and redness are the most common side effects.
Can JUVÉDERM® and Botox® be used Together?
Yes. Botox® and JUVÉDERM® are both wrinkle removers, but they have two different—and complementary—functions. JUVÉDERM®adds volume back to the face and Botox® acts as a wrinkle remover by stopping muscles from contracting. Used together, Botox® stops new wrinkles from forming, while JUVÉDERM® fill in the ones that already exist.
