What is Juvederm best used for?
There are many different options available on the market today for skin rejuvenation or cosmetic procedures, making it sometimes tricky to decipher which is the best option to suit your needs. Juvederm is a type of dermal filler with a base of hyaluronic acid that is commonly used to smoothen out mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles. It comes in several different formulations to be easily customizable for each individual’s needs and desired results. Juvederm is one of the most popular brands used for dermal fillers due to its ability to provide effective but natural results.
The results provided by Juvederm fillers can last anywhere from 1 to 2 years, allowing for annual touch-ups to prolong the effects. The length of time that you can expect for the fillers to last is very dependent on closely following the provided aftercare instructions. Juvederm fillers are used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the skin, so the best way to allow for the effects to last as long as possible is to follow preventative measures to avoid letting fine lines and wrinkles develop. Some factors that may increase fine lines and wrinkles include dehydration, sun exposure, stress, a poor diet, and lack of exercise. Essentially, do everything that you could normally do to avoid developing creasing in your skin to prolong the lifespan of your dermal fillers for as long as possible. Touch-up appointments, once the effects of the fillers start to fade, will also allow you to avoid having to start the process over from the beginning again.
Juvederm fillers are recommended for anyone who is experiencing creasing through fine lines and wrinkles in their skin due to environmental factors such as damage due to sun exposure. Good candidates will include those who are of good physical health, do not smoke, and have realistic expectations for the results provided by the fillers. Candidates must also be at least 21 years of age. Qualities that would make someone a poor candidate for Juvederm fillers include pre-existing allergies to any of the ingredients, specifically lidocaine, being pregnant or nursing, or those who are trying to become pregnant.
There are a few different formulas that vary in the quantity of hyaluronic acid available for Juvederm fillers as different formulas will be used for specific areas of the face. The formulations can vary a fair bit in price per syringe. Injections being done around the mouth and lips will typically cost between $500 and $1,000 for one needle, depending on the precise formula you choose. To treat loss of volume under the eyes, the fillers will likely be more expensive, costing up to $1,500 per syringe, similar to the cost of fillers if done in the cheeks. You may only require one syringe for the treatment, but 2 or more may be recommended depending on what all you wish to have done. There are four different formulas available for Juvederm fillers; Volbella, Ultra, Vollure, and Voluma. Each of these formulas is also available in a slightly more expensive version (version “XC”) that contains an increased amount of lidocaine, which acts as a local anesthetic eliminating the need for a separate anesthetic to be injected before the fillers are administered.
Juvederm is a type of dermal filler that is used for minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures. It is commonly used to fill in skin creases, reducing the appearance of mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles offering a smoother, youthful complexion around the mouth, nose, and chin. Juvederm is also commonly used in the lips to provide volume and definition as well as provide lift and contour to the cheeks. While it has shown to be very effective for treating the lower half of the face, Juvederm is not recommended for the upper portion of the face. The “XC” version of Juvederm is better formulated for the more severe wrinkles and folds in the face and provides even more volume to the skin.
