What is Juvederm?

JUVÉDERM® is the #1 selling collection of injectable hyaluronic acid fillers in the U.S. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® Collection of Fillers -  Ultra, Ultra Plus, Vollure, Volbella, and Voluma - adds volume to a different area of the face, without surgery. Thicker, less flexible products are used to create definition (think: cheekbone and jawline), bouncier products are used to add volume (to cheeks or lips), and thinner products are used to add hydration without changes in volume or structure (like the under-eyes and lips). Since hyaluronic acid is naturally made and metabolized by the body, there are low rates of reactions to the products, and the product is slowly metabolized over time. All JUVÉDERM® fillers are smooth, crystal-clear gels that are administered by an injection specialist at Belladerm MedSpa.

Am I a good candidate for Juvederm?

You’re a good candidate for Juvederm if you have fine lines and wrinkles and the desire to look younger. Dermal fillers work by “plumping” the skin, filling in the lines and wrinkles, and smoothing out the skin in the process. The number of injections required depends on your individual needs and the area you wish to treat. With so many filler products on the market, it’s difficult to know which option is best. Certain fillers work better for a particular area, so we recommend consulting an injection specialist about which treatment is right for.

What can you expect during treatment?

Since dermal fillers are non-surgical, treatment can usually be completed in an office visit. Depending on your provider, your initial treatment often begins with a consultation to determine your needs and desired outcomes. The injection specialist will review your medical history and discuss any concerns you may have prior to treatment. Although the risk associated with injectable fillers is relatively low, it’s important to disclose any allergies, medications, or neurological conditions you have to your provider.

Before the actual treatment, the injection site is cleaned, and a topical anesthetic is applied to numb the area. Your specialist will then carefully inject the filler under the skin. You may notice results immediately, depending on the area. It’s not uncommon to experience mild bruising and swelling at the injection site. This usually lasts for about three to five days after treatment; however, the side effects will vary from patient to patient.

Generally, dermal fillers last anywhere from 6 to 18 months but results depend on several variables, including the patient and the injection area. For example, the treatment for nasolabial folds (smile lines or folds that run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth) usually last longer than lip injections.

Injectable dermal fillers offer a practical, cost-effective way to look younger. However, choosing the right injection specialist is key to receiving quality care and desirable outcomes. The trusted experts at Belladerm MedSpa will customize a treatment plan according to your needs and beauty goals.

How does Juvederm work?

When people think of reversing the aging process and starting the journey to a smoother, younger-looking face, they often think of Botox. While Botox can smooth wrinkles and make you look years younger, dermal fillers can address issues Botox can’t. Let’s talk dermal fillers. Dermal fillers lift and smooth deep wrinkles and folds by adding volume to the face for a fresher look.

As we age, natural collagen production decreases, making skin less elastic. Due to a lack of hyaluronic acid (HA) production, skin becomes drier, thinner, and less able to repair itself. Therefore, wrinkles and lines appear. The dermal filler injection procedure involves injecting gel that mimics your own naturally occurring HA through a tiny needle into the skin to add volume and freshness to the face.

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.

Juvederm Ultra

The softest dermal filler 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

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.

Vollure

Vollure is the middle child of the Juvederm clan. It combines a perfect mix of spreadability and durability allowing for more natural facial expressions and movements after injection. It’s ideal for treating nasolabial folds and marionette lines as well as filling in moderate wrinkles and refreshing the lower part of the face. The treatment can last up to 18 months and has been found to be the longest-lasting dermal filler for nasolabial folds.

Voluma

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.

Whether you’re suffering from a lack of collagen production, acne, or other effects of the aging process, dermal fillers can give you a more natural appearance than surgical face lifts. They are used to reduce or eliminate wrinkles, raise scar depressions, enhance lips, and replace soft-tissue volume loss.

How long do Juvederm results last?

Results may last one year to two years, with optimal treatment and depending on the formula used. Correction is temporary; therefore, touch-up injections, as well as repeat injections, are usually needed to maintain optimal corrections. Of course, results may vary, and it is best to discuss your individual case with your injection specialist during your initial consultation.
