Facial volume loss is a natural part of the aging process and can result in visible signs like wrinkles, sunken eyes, and flattened cheeks. With a dermal filler formula like the Juvederm family, youthful volume can be instantly restored to the skin for a rejuvenated appearance.
Juvederm is a family of injectable dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the skin, providing moisture and volume. When the formula is injected below the skin, wrinkles and folds in the lower face are instantly filled in for a smoother appearance. As the body breaks down the formula, results will begin to diminish, or a touch-up session can be performed.
“Received top notch service and attention! Everyone was very pleasant, professional and administered treatment exactly as requested; with a great outcome. I’ll definitely return for additional treatments.”
Candidates for Juvederm are those who want to smooth out wrinkles and folds in the lower face or add subtle volume to the facial features. Dermal fillers like Juvederm effectively improve wrinkles that are static and present even when the face is relaxed. Juvederm comes in several different formulas depending on your specific concerns including:
- Juvederm Vollure – fills in lines around the nose and mouth
- Juvederm Volbella – adds subtle volume to the lips
- Juvederm Voluma – adds volume to the cheeks for a lifted appearance
Juvederm fillers can be combined with each other to treat several concerns at once, or can be used alongside other formulas like Botox or Dysport. Those that are pregnant or breastfeeding or have severe skin allergies may not be candidates for treatment with Juvederm.
Prior to treatment with Juvederm, the skin will be cleansed and patients will have the option of topical numbing cream to maximize their comfort. Next, Adley will then place a small amount of Juvederm in the target area around the mouth and nose. The injection process typically takes about 15 minutes to complete.
There is no downtime needed after treatment with Juvederm. Some swelling, redness, and itching at the injection site may occur but should resolve within a few hours. The results of Juvederm are instant for smoother, younger looking skin. These results can last for up to a year or longer depending on the specific formula used and can be maintained with a touch-up session.
For the most effective and safest care possible, injectables like Juvederm should only be administered by a professional like Adley DaSilva. To learn more about Juvederm and to find out which formula is right for you, contact Cosmetica Plastic Surgery and Anti-Aging and Schedule your consultation.
