Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid injectable gel that adds volume and hydration to the skin. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in our skin, but, as we age, our production of this acid and collagen decreases and causes volume loss. Not only that, but wrinkles and facial folds can also become more prevalent once volume loss begins.
Since Juvederm safely adds more volume back to the face, many patients love how it helps them regain confidence and look more like their best selves.
What Juvederm Can Treat
There are actually a few different types of Juvederm available. You can even think of Juvederm as a family of injectables that are here to support your different aesthetic needs.
Juvederm Voluma is used to treat significant volume loss in the midface with excellent results. Juvederm Ultra Plus is typically used to treat the smile lines (also known as nasolabial folds) and marionette lines (peri-oral lines) that we are prone to developing over time. Juvederm Ultra is a great product for lip augmentation for those who are seeking fuller, plump lips.
Who Should Get Juvederm?
Juvederm is often a fantastic treatment option for men and women over the age of 18. Individuals suffering from facial volume loss can benefit greatly from Juvederm treatments, regardless of whether or not their volume loss is caused by aging or another condition. Juvederm is also becoming increasingly popular among younger adults who want to prevent signs of aging early on.
To make sure you get the gorgeous results you want, Dr. Ip offers a wide range of injectable fillers and will develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs. Dr. Ip is trained in Cannula Delivery of Dermal Fillers. If you have a fear of needles, a cannula delivery allows for reduced pain and bruising.
What to Expect from Juvederm
Unlike other injectable fillers, the Juvederm family of products actually contains a small amount of numbing agent. This means that your experience will be both quick and comfortable without the need for additional numbing medications.
Dr. Ip will expertly place Juvederm to make sure you get natural-looking and beautiful results with just the right amount of product. Depending on the areas being treated by Juvederm, your appointment can last anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes.
Once you are done, you can enjoy a fuller-looking face for months to come!
All About Recovery Times and Results
Recovering from Juvederm is very similar to other injectables. Though there may be some slight swelling, bruising, or tenderness following the injections, you won’t have to stay home from work to recover from this procedure.
The results of Juvederm are renowned for transforming someone’s appearance into their best self. By restoring some of the volume lost through the aging process, or after rapid weight loss, many people feel more confident and happy in the skin they’re in.
Juvederm is not a permanent procedure, and many patients opt to come in for “touch-ups” to maintain their results over a longer period of time. Without touch-ups, you can expect your results from one Juvederm session to last around a year.
Why Dr. Ip Recommends Juvederm
Based on how life-changing Juvederm can be for people with facial volume loss, Dr. Ip recommends Juvederm injections to many patients who are looking for a solution to this frustrating problem.
While some people aren’t candidates for Juvederm, those who are can enjoy their results for up to, and sometimes over, 12 months. And, for people who are nervous about needles and pain, the numbing agent and relative ease of this procedure makes it a great option for many.
