JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel
What Is Juvéderm?
Everyone wants to look youthful, but not everyone is willing or requires surgery. Fortunately, JUVÉDERM can fill in lines and wrinkles in less than half an hour without surgery. The results look smooth and natural and can last for up to one year. The procedure’s affordability, ease, and quick recovery have contributed to its increasing popularity. JUVÉDERM has proven safe and effective for different skin types.
How Does Juvéderm Work?
While BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes the muscles under a wrinkle, JUVÉDERM wrinkle filler physically fills the crease or line with a smooth gel mixed with lidocaine, a numbing agent for comfort. In addition, JUVÉDERM replenishes the skin’s supply of a naturally-occurring moisturizer, hyaluronic acid (HA) that aging, sun damage and other factors deplete causing the skin to lose volume and structure. By replacing the skin’s HA, Juvèderm restores volume and smoothes out the folds. Its unique formulation has made JUVÉDERM the only HA filler that has gained FDA approval for lasting up to a year with just one treatment.
“I absolutely love Dr. Duboys. I have never gone to his office and had a unpleasant appointment. They are incredibly sweet, talented, caring office. I’ve recommended many people and have never had bad feedback.” -Shannon W.
Types Of Juvéderm
While all Juvederm fillers have hyaluronic acid, they serve different purposes in terms of cosmetic improvements. Most fillers are similar but can achieve different cosmetic goals. Some are better for nasolabial folds while others are more suited for improving volume. A consultation can help you decide which type of filler is right for you.
- Ultra Plus XC
Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC
Juvederm Ultra Plus is proven to smooth lines in the face and give a more youthful look. This type of filler is thicker and more intense than the Ultra version. The results are increased lift, volume and visible results for around 6 to 9 months. With a combination of lidocaine and hyaluronic acid, this filler will revitalize your appearance.
Juvederm Vollure is most effective for the nasolabial folds. As well as smoothing smile lines and marionette lines. In comparison to other fillers, it can be injected deeper to smooth more severe folds. This adds volumes to areas surrounding the nose and mouth for up to 18 months.
Juvederm Volbella is a soft and more natural appearing filler. Containing hyaluronic acid filler, this will lightly add volume to your face. In comparison to other fillers, Volbella has a gentler and less thick formula lasting around a year. This is the perfect filler for someone wanting a more natural appearing lip.
What Can I Expect During My Initial Juvéderm Consultation?
During your initial consultation, Elliot B. Duboys, MD will carefully examine your face and recommend the best treatment plan. JUVÉDERM works best for correcting moderate to severe folds and wrinkles, including nasolabial folds, labiomental and paragraph folds. JUVÉDERM Ultra XC offers extra versatility in adding contour and volume, while JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC provides stronger effects for deeper wrinkles and folds.
During your procedure, fine needle injections instill JUVÉDERM into the dermis. Immediately, skin volume is boosted and wrinkles appear diminished.
When Can I Return To Normal Activities?
After your treatment, you can return to your daily routine instantly with the exceptions of strenuous exercise, alcoholic beverages, and exposure to sun or heat.
