What Is JUVÉDERM and How Does It Work?
JUVÉDERM is a brand of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers used to restore volume, smooth out lines and wrinkles, and enhance facial features. It is a non-surgical treatment option for facial rejuvenation and lifting and is one of the most widely used dermal fillers on the market today.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body. JUVÉDERM fillers are made of a smooth gel that contains synthetic hyaluronic acid which, when injected into the skin, adds volume and fullness to these areas. It works by filling in areas that have lost volume due to decreased fat pads and reduced skin elasticity. JUVÉDERM is a collection of multiple different products which all have unique uses for improving facial appearance.
What Products Are in the JUVÉDERM Collection?
JUVÉDERM VOLUX™ XC
JUVÉDERM VOLUX is the newest member of the JUVÉDERM family. This thick formulation is used to improve the definition of the jawline in adults over 21.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
This is one of the thickest JUVÉDERM fillers, and it is used to provide substantial volume to areas such as the cheeks, chin, and temples.
JUVÉDERM ULTRA PLUS XC
This filler also has a thicker formulation that can be used to treat deeper lines and wrinkles. The cross-linked formulation gives it substance while also allowing for some flexibility and movement.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC
This slightly lighter formulation can be used for more moderate wrinkles and folds. It can be especially useful for nasolabial folds and other lines around the nose and mouse.
JUVÉDERM ULTRA XC
JUVÉDERM ULTRA XC is a JUVÉDERM lip filler and can also be used for correcting moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
If you want to use JUVÉDERM for lips, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC may be the right choice. It can be used to minimize lipstick lines while also subtly augmenting the lips.
The Benefits of the JUVÉDERM Filler Collection
Multiple Treatment Areas
One of the benefits of the JUVÉDERM collection is that it can be suitable for treating many different areas of the face, including:
- Marionette Lines
- Nasolabial Folds
- And more
With such a wide range of formulations, we can create a treatment plan that specifically caters to your concerns. We may use just one product or multiple to help give you the best results.
Some patients need a thicker product that provides more substance to certain areas. Some JUVÉDERM products can mimic bone to provide contouring for areas such as the chin, jawline, and cheeks. Other products can move with your facial tissues, mimicking the look and feel of softer areas such as the lips.
With JUVÉDERM products, you can get many benefits without having to undergo surgery. It can be a good middle step for patients who are seeing signs of aging but who are not ready to have a facelift or other invasive procedures.
JUVÉDERM products and other HA fillers are reversible. If you want to restore an area to its natural volume for any reason, you can have your fillers dissolved with hyaluronidase injections.
What Does XC Mean?
The “XC” in JUVÉDERM products refers to the addition of a small amount of lidocaine in the formulation. This local anesthetic can lead to a more comfortable treatment for patients.
What Should You Expect From Your JUVÉDERM Treatment?
Consultation is the first step in the process. We will evaluate your concerns, discuss your expectations, and determine if JUVÉDERM is right for you.
We may numb the area with a topical anesthetic. Then the JUVÉDERM gel is injected directly into the target area using a fine needle. We use precise placement techniques to ensure even distribution and achieve the desired effects.
During recovery, you may be encouraged to avoid vigorous exercise, facials, sun exposure, alcohol, and certain medications. There is no downtime required after JUVÉDERM injections.
How Long Does JUVÉDERM Last?
You will begin to see the results of your JUVÉDERM filler right away. These results can last for several months. The average duration of results is anywhere from one year to two years depending on the filler used. Every patient is different and factors such as a patient’s metabolism, lifestyle, and how much filler was injected can have an effect on the duration of results. Eventually, your body will absorb the filler gel and maintenance injections may be needed to retain results.
