Aging is inevitable, but dermal fillers have finally provided us with a way to make the signs of aging nearly invisible. With all of the advancements in the beauty world, living with lines and wrinkles and features you don’t like is completely optional. At Nunnally Dermatology in Baton Rouge, LA, we offer Juvederm, a dermal filler that can restore volume to the face, enhance the features, and give you newfound confidence, regardless of your age.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Juvederm?
Men and Women With Wrinkles and Facial Folds
Cosmetic injectables aren’t just for women; men make good candidates as well. Both men and women alike will benefit from injections as a way to soften facial wrinkles and folds. Wrinkles and folds make you look anything but youthful and can even make you mentally and emotionally feel older than you are. Those who choose treatment with this injectable to soften those wrinkles and folds will get a softer look and will increase their confidence.
Men and Women With Smiles Lines
Men and women both can benefit from this treatment as a way to soften smile lines and increase their self-confidence. No one likes smile lines and the worst part about them is that they only deepen with time. These lines are hard to treat with anything other than cosmetic injectables, yet once you finally take the step to invest in yourself and your confidence and erase those smile lines, you will have a lot more to smile about.
Individuals Who Want Fuller Lips
Even though fuller lips are a trend, many people struggle with their confidence because of the appearance of their lips. Some people have lived for years feeling self-conscious about their lips long before this trend even began. This dermal filler provides those who want to enhance their lips, for whatever reason, with the ability to do just that. Full lips that you love and that make you feel confident are only an injection away.
Naturally Thin Lips
Some people are born with naturally thin lips and that fact has plagued them for most of their life. This dermal filler provides those individuals with a non-surgical way to augment their lips and finally be able to have the lips of their dreams. Some people have lips that aren’t as aesthetically balanced as they would like, and this dermal filler can bring balance to the lips and create the most aesthetically pleasing lips for your face.
Thinning Lips Due to Aging
Maybe you used to have full lips, but the aging process hasn’t been kind to you, and now your lips are much thinner than they used to be. You may not want bigger lips, you just may want your old lips back. This dermal filler will help you fill out your lips that have thinned as a result of the aging process and help you feel more confident in your appearance, and if you want them just a little fuller than they used to be, we can help with that too.
What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a reputable and trusted collection of dermal fillers that treats the signs of aging and enhances the features. When injected below the surface of the skin, these fillers add volume and create subtle changes that can give you the most aesthetically pleasing and youthful-looking face. This collection includes different formulations that can treat the cheeks, facial folds and wrinkles, the chin, and the lips.
Hyaluronic Acid and Particle Size
When it comes to dermal fillers, particle size matters. This collection of dermal fillers uses synthetic hyaluronic acid as one of its primary ingredients. This version of hyaluronic acid closely matches that which the body already produces, which is why it is such an effective filler. A benefit of this family of fillers is that it takes particle size into account. Different formulations contain different particle sizes so that they can effectively fill different areas of the face.
Thicker formulations are better able to treat deeper wrinkles and folds, while formulations with smaller hyaluronic acid particles allow injectors to use precision and accuracy when injecting into smaller and more detailed areas like the lips.
What Happens During Treatment?
The day is finally here, the day you’ve been waiting for: injection day! Once you undergo a consultation, you’ll be ready to schedule an appointment, and you may be nervous and excited at the same time. To best prepare for your first treatment, it’s important to have an idea of what will take place during that appointment.
During your treatment, your injector will clean the treatment area before administering the injections. Then, they will insert the needle into your treatment area with delicate accuracy. A topical numbing cream may be applied for optimal comfort if necessary. Once the injections are administered, your appointment will be complete. Treatments only take 10 to 20 minutes to perform, so you can schedule them at a time that works best for your needs.
What Do Treatments Feel Like?
Now that you know what happens during the appointment, you may still be wondering about one thing: the needle. Some patients, despite their hate for needles, can easily endure these treatments because they are quick. Our injectors use skill and precision during each injection. You can trust that when you choose our office, you’ll be in the hands of skilled injectors who will do everything possible to keep you as comfortable as possible and get the best results.
Aside from a skilled injector, other factors help make this treatment manageable. Each Juvederm filler is held within a syringe that has a very thin needle. Additionally, each formulation contains lidocaine, which is a mild pain killer and numbing agent. This addition helps you remain as comfortable as possible during and after your injections.
What Are the Benefits?
There are many benefits involved with choosing these dermal fillers to treat the signs of aging and enhance your features. You’ll get immediate results, you won’t have to wait to see a change in your appearance, and your appointments will only take a few minutes. Your results will last months to a full year, and you won’t have to undergo an invasive treatment to obtain those results.
Another benefit is that there is no downtime associated with cosmetic injections. You won’t have to take time off of work or rearrange your day around your injectable appointment. Most people resume their normal daily activities once their treatment is complete. This treatment is safe and effective and provides results every time.
The Different Formulations That We Offer
At Nunnally Dermatology, we are proud to offer two different formulations from the Juvederm family of fillers: Ultra and Ultra Plus. Both of these formulations treat different areas of the face and provide natural-looking and long-lasting results.
The Ultra Formulation
This dermal filler is specifically designed to help reduce the appearance of facial folds and wrinkles. It can help soften the light to moderate superficial lines that form around the mouth and the nose. These lines are difficult to treat with wrinkle creams and serums, but this dermal filler can effectively and temporarily treat and correct that which topical products cannot.
Additionally, this formulation can provide a non-surgical lip augmentation. Not only does it add fullness to the lips, but it will help create more aesthetically pleasing lips by changing their size and shape.
How Does It Work?
This dermal filler is injected into the face where folds and wrinkles exist. It adds fullness and volume to the area to soften and smooth those wrinkles and folds. When injected into the lips, it will fill them, shape them, and add volume.
How Soon Will I Notice Results?
Once injected with this dermal filler, you will notice an immediate softening of your facial fold and wrinkles. When it is used to add fullness to your lips, you will notice an immediate change in their appearance. Wherever you have this formulation injected, your results will continue to improve in the weeks following your initial treatment as the ingredients within the filler settle into your lips or below the surface of your skin.
How Long Do Results Last?
Results from this dermal filler will last up to one-year post-treatment. Once your results start to gradually fade, all you need to do is schedule another treatment so that you can maintain the most consistent results.
Ultra Plus is created with a thicker formulation. This thicker gel allows for Ultra Plus to effectively treat more severe facial lines and wrinkles that require extra filler to create the softest looking appearance. Those who have developed severe wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds, will benefit from this treatment, as it will help their skin look smooth and youthful, not wrinkled and aged.
How Soon Will I Notice Results?
All of the fillers within this collection provide immediate results, and this one is no different. Once your injector administers Ultra Plus into your deep folds, you will see an immediate improvement in the appearance of those folds.
How Long Do Results Last?
Results will last up to one year with optimal treatment. Your injector will develop a treatment plan that is right for your needs so that you get the best results possible.
Which Formulation Is Right for Me?
Until we see your problem areas in person, there’s no way to definitively tell you which of these formulations will meet your needs. The first step in the cosmetic injectable process is to schedule an initial consultation. During this consultation, we will review your health history, examine your problem areas, explain more about these dermal fillers, answer any questions you may have, and create a treatment plan that includes one of these dermal fillers.
