Pollution, weather, and the aging process can take a huge toll on our faces. Thankfully, today we have specialized cosmetic treatments that allow us to regain control of our skin and restore its youthful vitality and beauty. Among this range of non-surgical and minimally-invasive treatments is Juvéderm.
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is an FDA-approved hyaluronic dermal filler that contains an injectable gel that is designed to help revitalize the cells in the skin. The gel is designed to help rejuvenate the tissues in the face, improve the quality of the skin and give the face a nice and fresh appearance.
The Juvéderm injectable is actually a range of three injectables, each of which is designed to provide a different benefit to the face. These three injectables include:
Juvéderm Voluma: This injectable is for the mid-lower region of the face. Sagging skin and muscles in the cheeks & chin areas are best corrected using this product. It adds volume and fullness to the face.
Juvéderm Vollure: If your skin is looking tired and unhealthy, the Vollure is the perfect injectable to revitalize the skin cells. Once injected into the skin, this Juvéderm product makes your skin look young, fresh, and supple. The Vollure is the ideal injectable to choose if you’re looking for dramatic results.
Juvéderm Volbella: The Volbella is a lip contouring injectable that gives your lips amazing shape and size. It is perfect for people with thin lips and sagging skin around the mouth. The injectable adds volume and elasticity to the skin on and around the lips.
The Benefits of Using Juvéderm
Juvéderm offers many benefits compared to other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers:
• It provides a deeper healing, by rejuvenating and repairing the damaged skin cells.
• It addresses stubborn wrinkles and fine lines and helps smoothen the skin.
• It fills-in the hollowness in the face and provides it with a beautiful and shapely contour.
• It improves the elasticity in the skin and reduces skin laxity.
• It produces long-lasting results.
The Juvéderm Treatment
At the Cosmetic Surgery Center, we specialize in providing Juvéderm injectable treatments. The treatment starts with a consultation with Dr. JoAnne Lopes. She will evaluate your face and identify the problems that require treatment.
She will also determine the number of injectables to be used and the type of Juvéderm injectable to be used, based on the nature of the required corrections and the results you want. Next, she will create a treatment plan, outlining the areas of the face that need priority attention.
Since the Juvéderm injectables are non-surgical and are minimally-invasive, there is no need for anesthesia. The practitioner will start by injecting the Juvéderm through disposable syringes. The treatment is completed in under an hour and you will be allowed to drive back home or work immediately after.
Post-treatment you may experience minor tenderness, pain, and swelling. But these symptoms reduce in a day or two. You will be asked not to strain your facial muscles too much and to avoid long-term exposure to the sun and really hot water for a few days to allow the injectable to settle in appropriately.
Once your skin is healed, it will look younger, softer, and healthier, making you look absolutely gorgeous.
