Juvederm is a cosmetic treatment that is used to restore facial contours and improve signs of aging. It is an injectable dermal filler with a hyaluronic acid base, and it focuses on the face, specifically the cheeks, lips, and around the mouth. Juvederm is the first FDA-approved injectable gel dermal filler, and it works to create a gentle, natural addition to treated areas. Our talented doctor uses a fine needle to increase volume under the skin, resulting in the removal of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity.
Thanks to a combination of lidocaine in the product formula and a topical anesthetic agent, the injection process is virtually painless for most patients. When considering Juvederm treatments for a particular area of the face, it's important to understand which of these treatments is best for you. Juvederm comes in several formulas and is indicated for use on the most commonly treated areas of the face. Juvederm Ultra is an all-in-one dermal filler that works to correct fine lines and wrinkles, fill in cheeks and gaps under lines, and define facial features such as lips.
Juvederm Voluma is an excellent anti-aging treatment for patients who have moderate skin problems that want to correct without surgery. This treatment can last up to two years at a time, longer than almost all other dermal fillers on the market. Juvederm UltraPlus XC is a hyaluronic acid (HA) based filler that is made to be a thicker formula with lidocaine. Juvederm is a popular injectable that is highly effective in its ability to add natural volume to key areas of the face.
It is a soft, malleable gel that offers a more comfortable injection as a result of a local anesthetic within the Juvederm formula. It can provide several months of correction of facial wrinkles and folds, as well as enhance the lips. One of the reasons Juvederm is recommended for plumping and defining lips is that it is hydrophilic, meaning it attracts water that can increase its plumping action.
