Your skin is beautiful when you are younger. Taut, firm and glowing – these are some of the qualities that define your skin in your younger years. However, as you grow older, these qualities gradually fade. A vital protein known as collagen that promotes skin elasticity starts to diminish. As early as your 30’s, your body’s natural production of this protein begins to decline by one to two percent a year. The result is skin that is no longer taut but sagging, wrinkled and riddled with lines. As this occurs, it can potentially lead to a lack of self-confidence and make you feel older than you are. Collagen decline is part of the natural aging process. But just because aging is inevitable does not mean you have to appear as though you are. You can restore your skin’s plump image by utilizing a Juvederm filler, restoring your confidence and youthful image.

Juvederm is a highly popular dermal filler that produces natural-looking results. An injection of the filler can help restore youthful contours in your facial structure and alleviates signs of sagging skin, wrinkles and lines.

What Is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a family of dermal fillers that consist primarily of hyaluronic acid. The substance is found naturally in the body and has many functions, including maintaining skin firmness, hydration and elasticity. As with collagen, your natural production of hyaluronic acid declines with age, causing wrinkles and lines to become apparent. An injection of a Juvederm filler increases your hyaluronic acid levels, which will help improve your skin’s integrity. As Juvederm adds more volume to your facial structure, it will also help stimulate your skin’s collagen production, furthering your results.

Juvederm fillers are FDA-approved to treat a variety of cosmetic concerns. Each product consists of varying densities and textures, allowing your Juvederm treatment to be customizable based on your unique concerns.

What Does Juvederm Treat?

Juvederm treats wrinkles that are referred to as static wrinkles. Static wrinkles become more apparent as you age because they result from your skin’s supportive structure diminishing, compared to dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by facial movements over the years. Dynamic wrinkles are best treated with a neuromodulator, such as Botox.

Cosmetic concerns that are associated with static wrinkles and that Juvederm can treat include:

  • An uneven jawline
  • Aged, deflated lips
  • Thin lips
  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Cheeks lacking volume
  • Glabellar lines
  • Tear troughs

What Juvederm Fillers Do We Carry?

At De La Belle Wellness & Spa, we carry a range of Juvederm products that can address specific cosmetic concerns. Juvederm products we have include:

Juvederm Vollure This filler has a thick consistency with molecules that absorb slowly by the body. Juvederm Vollure is best-suited for treating moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. Nasolabial folds, deep lines that run from the nose to the mouth, can be smoothed with an injection of Juvederm Vollure.

Juvederm Volbella Volbella is well-suited for correcting minor cosmetic concerns associated with the lips. Patients with ‘lipstick lines’ or ‘smoker lines’ can improve their mouth’s appearance by having this filler. Juvederm Volbella can also be used to add more volume to the lips, making them more defined.

Juvederm Voluma This filler has a thick and sticky consistency and is perfect for treating volume loss in the mid-face region. Hollow cheeks can be restored, and an uneven jawline can become more defined with an injection of Juvederm Voluma.

Juvederm Ultra Plus Juvederm Ultra Plus is a versatile Juvederm product. The filler has a thick consistency, so it can be utilized to treat severe lines. Lines around the nose, cheeks and mouth can all be significantly improved with Juvederm Ultra Plus. Sometimes, this filler injection is referred to as a ‘liquid facelift’ because it reshapes facial contours.

Am I a Candidate for Juvederm?

A Juvederm injection can be safely performed on men and women of any skin tone and type. The treatment is not age restrictive. Young and old can experience the benefits of Juvederm, whether it’s to correct signs of age or to stave off signs of aging. You are an ideal candidate if wrinkles have disrupted your image and you desire to restore yourself to a more youthful appearance. The best candidates are in generally good health and have realistic expectations. Your concerns and medical history will be reviewed during an initial consultation to ensure your candidacy.

How Is a Juvederm Filler Performed?

During an initial consultation, which type of Juvederm filler would be most appropriate for your needs will be decided. The optimal injection sites and the number of doses needed to attain your desired results will also be determined.

Your Juvederm treatment will involve inserting a tiny needle into the desired treatment area, and your chosen dermal filler will then be injected. The treatment is generally tolerable, as each Juvederm consists of lidocaine, a numbing agent that will help mitigate discomfort. At most, you will experience a slight stinging sensation. Before and after your treatment session, an icepack will also be placed on the treatment site to make the experience more comfortable and to constrict blood flow in your blood vessels, which will minimize bruising. A Juvederm injection is a quick treatment, usually lasting several minutes, depending on the number of areas treated.

What Results Can I Expect After My Juvederm Filler Treatment?

Your Juvederm results will be noticeable immediately after treatment. Parts of your facial structure where wrinkles and hollows were noticeable will now appear smooth, taut and plump. There is little to no discomfort after the injection, and you can return to normal activities right away.

Depending on which Juvederm product is used, your results can last for a few months to a couple of years. How long your results last can also be dependent on how quickly your body metabolizes the hyaluronic acid, how much is injected and where it is injected. Patients are encouraged to wear sunscreen to maintain their results for as long as possible. If you are unsatisfied with your results, you can return to our offices, and we can inject hyaluronidase into your treated area. This substance can effectively dissolve hyaluronic acid.
