One of the natural results of aging skin is the presence of fine lines, deeper lines, and wrinkles. Over time, skin can also lose its elasticity causing certain areas of the face to lose their smoothness and definition. Even if you already have a good skincare routine, you may be wishing for something extra to help you look as vibrant as you feel on the inside.
Juvéderm is a line of dermal fillers that can be used in many ways to give your skin a lift and help you look refreshed and youthful. At Resurgence Med Spa, we would love to help you learn more about Juvéderm and the six formulations that can be used in different areas of your face. You can set up a consultation with us to learn more about which product or products could be helpful in your situation.
What Are Hyaluronic Acid Gel Fillers?
Many dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm, are made from Hyaluronic Acid, or HA. You may recognize this ingredient from hydrating skin care products such as facial serums. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body, and its role is to help the skin stay full and hydrated. When used as a dermal filler, hyaluronic acid can help to smooth and lift different areas on the face. Since the hyaluronic acid used in Juvéderm is chemically identical to what is already found in your body, the product is easily absorbed in the months after the treatment.
What Makes Juvéderm Different?
While other dermal fillers can produce similar results, Juvéderm has a smoother gel-like formula which may cause results to be seen faster than other dermal fillers. Juvéderm can be a good choice for you because it is among the 3 most researched minimally invasive cosmetic treatments and its formula allows for a wide variety of applications. Each of the Juvéderm products is also an XC formula, meaning it includes lidocaine to simplify the treatment process and help minimize patient discomfort during the appointment.
What Are the Different Types of Juvéderm?
Depending on which areas of your face you want to focus on for your Juvéderm treatment, we may recommend a combination of several different products in the Juvéderm line. The collection features six products that can be targeted to treat lines, wrinkles, and volume loss in many different areas of the face. Each of these products is approved for use in adults who are older than 21 years of age.
Juvéderm Voluma® XC
This thicker formula is designed for deep injection in areas of the face that have lost their volume or where you desire more contour and shape. It is typically used as a cheek filler to restore volume loss due to stress or aging or in the chin area to make the chin fuller and more defined.
Juvéderm Vollure® XC
Juvederm Vollure XC can be a good choice for patients who want to soften some of the deeper lines and wrinkles that can occur in the smile or laugh lines around the mouth, the nasolabial folds, and the laugh lines near the nose.
Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC
This product is also a good choice for the lines that can develop around the nose and mouth from laughing and smiling. As a more stable formula, it is an excellent option for temporarily smoothing out these lines by adding more fullness and making you look more refreshed.
Juvéderm Ultra XC
If you want to make your lips plumper while still keeping a natural look, Juvederm Ultra may be a good option. It has a smoother and thinner formula which can be perfect for more delicate areas of the face such as the lips.
Juvéderm Volbella® XC
As the thinnest of the Juvéderm family, this product is also ideal for use in and around the lips. It can be used as a lip filler to plump the lips or to help smooth out vertical lip lines around the mouth.
Juvéderm Volux™ XC
Volux is approved for use in the jawline to help patients achieve a more defined jawline without more invasive procedures.
What Are the Benefits of Juvéderm Treatments?
Most of our patients come to us wanting to smooth and lift lines in their face while still feeling like themselves. With Juvéderm, we can achieve subtle and natural-looking results that will still look and feel like you.
Not everyone is a good candidate for invasive facelift procedures. Juvéderm can be a good choice for those who want something non-invasive. It can even be a good option for those who want a more temporary solution.
Juvéderm treatments can be very fast and most people can fit them into their lunch hour or at other convenient times during the day. Some treatments can even take as little as 15 minutes. You can talk to our team to learn more about what to expect from your Juvéderm treatment.
Juvéderm for wrinkle reduction and facial lifting and contouring is a highly customizable treatment. Our team will work with you to come up with a treatment plan that addresses your specific needs.
No Downtime Treatment
One of the biggest benefits of Juvéderm is that there’s no downtime. Many people report only slight redness and tenderness at the injection site. You may even start to see some of the effects of the treatment right away.
