What is Juvéderm?
There are multiple types of Juvéderm that can help to fill in deep lines and wrinkles on your face! These fillers include Juvéderm Ultra, Juvéderm Ultra Plus, and Juvéderm Volbella. Juvéderm Ultra, Ultra Plus, and Volbella are fillers that contain Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is a natural substance that is produced in the skin that binds easily to water. Once injected into the skin it attracts water to the soft tissue providing volume and fullness to the face.
These products fill the face by replacing lost volume and restoring youthful contours. This smooth’s the wrinkles and folds to produce a natural appearance. The difference between Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus is the consistency. The Ultra is a softer filler, while the Ultra Plus is a thick and stiffening filler. Both products contain lidocaine to help reduce any discomfort or pain during and after the treatment. Volbella is tailored to add subtle volume to the lips and smooth the appearance of vertical lip lines. All Juvéderm treatments provide immediate natural results after treatment.
What Areas Does Juvéderm Treat?
Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus can be used on most areas of the face. The most common uses of the products are for the treatment of the nasolabial folds (the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of the mouth). The thickness of the Ultra Plus allows it to treat deep wrinkles and lines adding volume and structure to the face. Whereas the Juvéderm Ultra is often used for lip augmentations, its soft consistency produces a plump natural lip. Volbella is also injected into the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral lines in adults over the age of 21.
Any treatment using Juvéderm Ultra, Ultra Plus, or Volbella is minimally invasive and essentially has no down time. Some patients may experience some swelling at the injection site and very minor bruising; this may last 7 to 10 days.
How Long Will Juvéderm Results Last?
The results of a Juvéderm Ultra, Ultra Plus, or Volbella treatment may last anywhere from 6-9 months. However results may vary depending on the injection site and the patients skin type. The product can last up to 2 years if the treatments are done in sessions.
