The aging process is inevitable. As you grow older, the gradual loss of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid from your skin leads to wrinkles, midface hollows, sagging skin, and other cosmetic concerns. But these changes can be reversed with a few simple injections, and that’s where Juvéderm fillers come into the picture!
How Your Face Loses Volume
When you’re young, your face looks soft, supple, smooth, and voluminous. But as you grow older, your facial skin starts looking creased, wrinkled, crepey, loose, and hollow. Why do these changes occur? The gradual, age-related loss of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid is the primary factor for the loss of facial volume, which directly contributes to the onset of fine lines, facial wrinkles, thin lips, sunken cheeks, and numerous other cosmetic concerns.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring gelatinous substance that lubricates your joints and makes your skin look supple. It binds up to 1,000x its weight in water, a property that makes your cheeks look fuller and more voluminous. The gradual loss of hyaluronic acid because of age leads to sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. But we use highly personalized dermal fillers that can restore your skin’s hyaluronic acid reserves and reverse the signs of aging.
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is a collection of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers that reverse the signs of facial aging and elevate your facial contours. Juvéderm fillers are made of synthetic hyaluronic acid, so they’re injected into targeted facial tissues to fill out fine lines and wrinkles and restore midface volume. Besides reversing the effects of aging, Juvéderm fillers also sculpt your natural facial contours, helping you achieve fuller cheeks, luscious lips, and a more chiseled jawline.
Selecting the Right Juvéderm Filler
Juvéderm fillers come in numerous formulations — Juvéderm Voluma XC, Juvéderm Vollure XC, Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC, Juvéderm Volbella XC, and Juvéderm Ultra XC. Each Juvéderm filler has a unique formulation and consistency suitable for different treatment areas and degrees of correction. Lighter Juvéderm fillers, such as Volbella or Ultra XC are injected into the lips to add subtle enhancements, and deeper formulations are suitable for nasolabial folds or cheek augmentation. Your medical provider will select the appropriate Juvéderm filler for your specific treatment areas and goals.
Juvéderm fillers produce instant results. Your facial skin will look smoother, softer, and more contoured after the treatment, but the results will improve once the side effects dissipate. The results usually last 6 to 18 months, depending on the treatment area and the filler used. Most patients opt for maintenance treatments every 9 to 12 months to maintain youthful skin.
