It’s a fact – as we age, our skin loses volume, which leads to sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles on the face as well as around the eyes, nose, and mouth. Juvederm and its family of dermal fillers offer an efficient, minimally invasive solution to fill up those areas of lost volume so facial contours can be restored quickly. The hyaluronic acid (HA) gel stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, adding volume and more elasticity to the skin. Read on for everything you need to know about Juvederm.
What is Juvederm Exactly?
Juvederm is an injectable gel dermal filler that plumps lips, smooths wrinkles, and lifts and contours cheeks. This hyaluronic acid (HA) gel stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, which adds volume and more elasticity to the skin. Juvederm is known for its effectiveness and overall safe usage for the patient.
What are the Types of Juvederm?
There are several different types of Juvederm on the market today. Choosing the right one for you depends on the condition of the focus area and the desired results. It’s best to consult your skin care professional to decide on the best course of treatment for you.
One of the softest dermal fillers in the Juvederm family, Juvederm Ultra, is injected into the dermis layer of the skin and used to treat mild to medium-depth wrinkles located from your nose to the corners of your mouth. It also smooths out depressed scars and enhances lips. Juvederm Ultra treatments are usually relatively painless and quick. This is the ideal treatment for anyone seeking to smooth mild to medium-depth wrinkles or plump areas with minor skin depression or fat loss. Results will last up to 12 months.
Juvederm Ultra Plus
Juvederm Ultra Plus is a thicker version of the Juvederm Ultra. It’s used to fill in depressed areas in the cheeks and correct deeper facial wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. Ultra Plus is ideal for those looking to smooth deep folds and wrinkles or plump areas with deep skin depression or fat loss. Results usually last up to 12 months.
Volbella is a blend of different molecular weights of HA that creates subtle, long-lasting volume. A member of the Juvederm family, Volbella is used to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of lines around the mouth. Since it contains the thinnest, most spreadable gel, it is also used to fill in acne scarring on the face, and even smooth out the delicate under eye area. Volbella usually lasts up to 12 months.
The thickest and strongest gel of the Juvederm family, Voluma, is ideal for deeper injections into the cheeks. It gives your face a nice lift and boost of supple volume. If you’re looking for a natural contour and a defined, youthful look, Voluma is for you. No downtime is needed after the injection and it can last up to two years.
Juvederm offers a safe, non-invasive way to look younger. However, choosing the right injection specialist is key to receiving quality care and desireable outcomes. The trusted experts at Belladerm MedSpa will customize a treatment plan according to your needs and beauty goals.
