Juvederm® Miami

As we grow older, some areas of our face, including lips and cheeks, begin to thin. The fine line becomes visible around the eyes, nose, and mouth. The facial expressions make the skin folds more intense. Surgical procedure erases the aging signs. But if you are reluctant to go for a surgical procedure, the good news is that you can consider cosmetic fillers or facial fillers. Few options are minimally invasive and safe and do not require recovery time. For immediate results, choose the Juvederm® that smoothens your skin and helps regain the lost glow and youthful appearance.

What is Juvederm®?

Juvederm® belongs to the family of dermal fillers whose main ingredient is hyaluronic acid. The consistency of Juvederm® fillers is different from other hyaluronic acid-based fillers. It is smooth, gel-like instead of a typical granular texture. The Hylacross technology is used to make Juvederm®. Hyaluronic acid holds the water molecules at the injection site, temporarily adds volume, and smoothens the skin texture.

Types of Juvederm®

There are several types of Juvederm® available in the market. Choosing the right one depends on the area that needs treatment or the desired results.
An injectable expert can guide you in selecting the ideal product for you.

  • Juvederm® Ultra
    One of the softest members of the Juvederm® family. It is injected into the skin's dermis layer and helps treat mild to medium-depth wrinkles from your nose to the angles of your mouth. In addition, it effectively smoothens out the depressed scars and enhances lips. Juvederm® ultra is quick and reasonably painless. It is ideal for anyone seeking to smoothen out mild to moderate wrinkles and plump up depressed skin.
  • Juvederm® Volbella
    Hyaluronic acid molecules with multiple molecular weights are present in Juvederm® Volbella. It is most commonly used to improve lip fullness and fade the appearance of lines around the mouth. The results of Juvederm® Volbella are subtle and long-lasting. In addition, its thinnest and easily spreadable gel-like consistency helps erase acne scars and smoothen out the under-eye area.
  • Juvederm® Ultra Plus
    Juvederm® Ultra Plus is comparatively thicker than Juvederm® Ultra. It is used to fill in the sunken cheeks and fade deeper wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. It is perfect for people looking to correct deeper skin folds and improve the appearance of areas with lost volume.
  • Juvederm® Voluma
    It is the thickest and strongest member of the Juvederm® family. Therefore, it is ideally used for an excellent facelift and boosting supple volume to depressed cheeks. It contours the facial features and provides a youthful complexion.

Juvederm® Treatment Procedure

A typical Juvederm® session lasts for 15-30 minutes. Since it contains hyaluronic acid that is naturally found in the human body, there is a minimal risk of allergic reactions. With the assistance of a very fine syringe, the physician injects the Juvederm® into the dermal layer of the patient's skin. The skin lifting effect usually becomes visible within one week of the treatment. The body naturally absorbs the hyaluronic acid, and the results last longer.

How Does Juvederm® Work?

Hyaluronic acid, a sugar-based substance in the skin, is responsible for retaining moisture and nutrient levels in skin cells. As a result, it creates volume and increases the skin's smoothness and suppleness. Unfortunately, with aging, skin starts to lose its ability to manufacture its own hyaluronic acid. Juvederm® contains hyaluronic acid particles that fill in fine lines, wrinkles, furrows, and sunken face areas. The smooth gel gets absorbed into the body over time and helps you achieve a youthful appearance.

Treatment Areas for Juvederm®

Juvederm® is suitable for any area of your face, including fine lines and creases around the nose, mouth, and forehead. It is very effective in improving the appearance of scars caused by acne. In addition, it significantly enhances the shape and size of lips.

After Effects of Juvederm®

Though Juvederm® is safe with no potential side effects, patients can expect some after effects, including redness, mild pain, tenderness at the injection site, bruising, itching, lumps, and bumps. None of these after-effects last more than a week. Patients can use ice packs to ease the discomfort.

How Long Does Juvederm® Results Last?

The longevity of Juvederm® results varies from person to person. It mainly depends on which Juvederm® product is used, how much filler is injected, the area of concern, and other factors. However, on average, results usually last for 12-18 months. The lip enhancement with Juvederm® does not last much longer, but still, many patients enjoy the plumped-up lips for one year. Patients can increase the results' longevity by following the physician's recommended sessions.

Combination of Botox with Juvederm®

You can customize your Juvederm® treatment with Botox. Juvederm® fabulously fades static lines and wrinkles, while Botox amazingly targets the dynamic lines by relaxing the underlying muscles. These injectable procedures help enhance and maintain healthy, glowing, and youthful skin.

Ideal Candidates for Juvederm®

Most men and women after the age of 30 experience fine lines, wrinkles, and skin sagging. In addition, poor diet, unhealthy lifestyle, and hormonal problems accelerate the aging process. Anybody over the age of 21 can get Juvederm® injections. In addition, people who do not want to go for cosmetic surgery can enjoy the fantastic benefits of the injectable procedure with no side effects. The Juvederm® process's safety, effectiveness, and convenience have increased its popularity exponentially in recent years.

Does Juvederm® Injections Hurt?

Patients may feel minor discomfort during and after the treatment. A very fine needle is used to inject the Juvederm® into the skin. It contains an additional component, lidocaine, a local anestheic that helps lessen the discomfort during the procedure. The physician may apply numbing cream or gel to the treatment site before the injection to ensure maximum comfort.

Is There Any Downtime of Juvederm®?

There is no downtime of Juvederm® treatment. Patients can go back to regular activities instantly after the process. Mild redness and soreness at the injection site are common. However, avoiding excessive sun exposure, strenuous exercise, and makeup or skincare products containing alcohol is recommended for a few days after the treatment.

Is Juvederm® Safe for All?

Juvederm® contains hyaluronic acid, similar to naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, so there is no risk of an allergic reaction after the procedure. In addition, Juvederm® is an FDA-approved injectable procedure that helps patients to achieve the most natural-looking results.

Pre-Treatment Guidelines

It is essential to consult a practitioner before you decide to go for a Juvederm® procedure. An injectable expert can understand your skin concerns and recommend an ideal treatment that suits your skin needs. During the consultation, the physician will look into your medical history and ask for any prescription medicines you may be taking. It is advised to stop taking the blood- thinning medication and anti-inflammatory drugs before the session because they increase the chances of redness and bruising after the treatment.

Post Treatment Guidelines

In the days and weeks after the treatment session, taking good care of your skin is crucial. Following physician's guidelines increases the longevity of the results. In addition, drink plenty of water and eat healthy meals to ensure your skin receives the nutrients it needs.
