Unveiling the Magic of JUVEDÉRM® Fillers: Rejuvenate with Confidence

Cosmetic fillers, also known as dermal fillers, have revolutionized the field of non-surgical aesthetics, offering a quick and effective solution to address various facial concerns. In the ever-evolving world of cosmetic enhancements, JUVEDÉRM® has emerged as a leading brand, offering a diverse line of fillers that help individuals achieve youthful, radiant skin. Advanced Dermatology & Skin Surgery carries various injectables from the JUVEDÉRM line at our Spokane locations and at Coeur D’Alene. Let us show you what JUVEDÉRM can offer you.

What are JUVEDÉRM fillers?

JUVEDÉRM is a renowned dermal filler brand developed by Allergan, a pioneer in the field of medical aesthetics. JUVÉDERM is one of the most popular dermal fillers in the US, offering six unique and long-lasting fillers. JUVEDÉRM fillers are trusted by millions worldwide for their natural-looking results, minimal downtime, and long-lasting effects without invasive procedures. Each JUVEDÉRM filler is designed in different formulations for different needs in specific areas of the face – lips, cheeks, chin, fine lines, undereye, or jawline.

How do JUVEDERM fillers work?

JUVEDÉRM fillers primarily work by restoring lost volume, smoothing fine lines, and enhancing facial contours. These fillers consist of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the human body responsible for maintaining skin hydration and volume. Since it naturally occurs in the body, there is a smaller chance of a reaction from using the filler. The hyaluronic acid in the fillers binds with water molecules, creating a plumping effect, which fills in lines and wrinkles while improving skin hydration. The gel-like consistency of JUVEDÉRM ensures a smooth and even distribution, resulting in a natural and youthful look.

JUVEDÉRM offers various formulations, each catering to specific concerns:

  1. JUVEDÉRM® VOLUMA® XC: This filler is designed to add volume to the cheeks, cheekbones, and chin. Lifting and contouring these areas restores a more youthful and balanced appearance to the face.
  2. JUVEDÉRM® VOLBELLA® XC: Targeting the lips and the areas around the mouth, VOLBELLA enhances lip volume and softens perioral lines, commonly known as “smoker’s lines.” It is also FDA-approved for use in the undereye area.
  3. JUVEDÉRM® VOLLURE® XC: This filler addresses moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and parentheses lines, providing long-lasting results with a natural look.
  4. JUVEDÉRM® Ultra XC and Ultra Plus XC: These are versatile fillers used for lip augmentation, filling fine lines, and enhancing facial contours.
  5. JUVEDERM® VOLUX® XC: Used as a deep injection to improve moderate to severe loss of jawline definition in adults over the age of 21.

The Injection Process

Receiving JUVEDÉRM fillers is a minimally invasive procedure that can typically be completed in a single visit by a qualified Medical Provider. Your initial consultation at Advanced Dermatology & Skin Surgery involves your Board-Certified Dermatologist assessing your facial structure and discussing your individual goals and expectations. An in-depth review of your medical history will take place and then proceed to prepare you for your treatment.

The JUVEDÉRM filler is skillfully injected beneath the skin using a fine needle or cannula. The procedure is relatively quick, with minimal discomfort experienced by most patients, especially since the fillers contain lidocaine to aid in the patient’s comfort. Lastly, your Provider will review any aftercare instructions that may apply, and you can get right back to your day.

It is essential to note that while the procedure itself is generally well-tolerated, some patients might experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site. These side effects are temporary and typically resolve within a few days.

The Longevity of JUVEDERM Effects

One of the significant advantages of JUVEDÉRM fillers is the longevity of their effects compared to other dermal fillers. The duration of results can vary depending on the filler used, the individual’s metabolism, and the treated area. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the effects of most FDA-approved dermal fillers, such as JUVEDÉRM, are temporary because they are made from materials that the body eventually breaks down and absorbs. Follow-up treatments may be necessary to maintain the desired results. On average:

– JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC can last up to 18-24 months.

– JUVEDERM VOLBELLA XC typically lasts around 12 months.

– JUVEDERM VOLLURE XC can last up to 15-18 months.

– JUVEDERM Ultra XC AND Ultra Plus XC results generally last between 6 to 12 months.

– JUVEDERM VOLUX XC – lasts around 12 months.

Many patients find that subsequent treatments require less product to achieve the same effects, as the initial treatment stimulates natural collagen production, which can lead to prolonged results over time.

Advantages of JUVEDÉRM

  • Like other hyaluronic acid–based fillers, these can be dissolved with hyaluronidase if you don’t like your results or have a complication.
  • Juvéderm VOLLURE and VOLUMA are the longest-lasting HA fillers available: results have been shown to last up to 18 months and up to two years, respectively.
  • It is a relatively quick procedure, and most results are immediately noticeable.
  • Downtime is minimal, and patients can return to their normal activities after the injections.

If you’re considering JUVEDÉRM fillers, the American Academy of Dermatology reminds you that these are still medical procedures, and you should take care to obtain your injections from a Medical Provider. It’s crucial to consult a qualified and experienced Board-Certified Dermatologist to discuss your goals and expectations. A Dermatologist is an expert in facial anatomy, has experience in safely and effectively injecting fillers, and can select the appropriate product that will work for your goals. With their expertise and JUVEDÉRM’s transformative capabilities, you can embark on a journey to rediscover your youthful confidence and radiance, one injection at a time.
