Refresh your face without surgery
Facial lines, wrinkles, folds, and a loss of definition in the features are a natural part of the aging process that can begin to develop as early as your 30s. This is due to the body producing less collagen, the key to strong, youthful-looking skin. With Juvéderm fillers, patients can restore volume loss to refresh their appearance.
Juvéderm is a family of injectable hyaluronic acid fillers. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body and provides the skin with a supple appearance. When placed beneath the skin’s surface, Juvéderm can smooth out lines and folds in the lower face and can redefine the facial features. Patients can choose from the formulas below depending on their concerns.
Juvéderm can soften the appearance of moderate to severe lines around the nose and mouth. Results are instant, lasting for up to one year.
Juvéderm Ultra can be used to smooth out lines around the nose and mouth and can also be placed in the lips for a subtle enhancement. The results of Juvéderm Ultra can last for up to one year.
Juvéderm Ultra Plus uses a slightly thicker formula that can be used to treat deeper wrinkles and folds in the lower face. The results of Juvéderm Ultra Plus can last for up to one year.
Juvéderm Volbella is designed to add subtle volume to the lips and smooth out vertical lip lines. Juvéderm Volbella can last for up to one year.
Juvéderm Vollure can be placed around the nose and mouth to smooth out lines and wrinkles. The results of Vollure can last for up to 18 months.
Juvéderm Voluma can be placed in the midface to restore volume loss and recontour the cheeks. The results of Voluma can last for up to two years.
Juvéderm fillers are FDA-approved for those 21 and over. Candidates for Juvéderm are those who experience the first signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and volume loss in the facial features. Dr. Berman will meet with you to determine which Juvéderm formula or combination of formulas is right for you and your unique concerns. Those with severe skin allergies and those that are pregnant or nursing may not be candidates for treatment with Juvéderm.
Before the Juvéderm treatment process, the skin will be cleansed and prepped. Those who are worried about discomfort can ask for a topical anesthetic to maximize their comfort. The appropriate Juvéderm filler will then be placed in the treatment areas below the skin to instantly fill in wrinkles and folds. The process is typically complete in under 30 minutes.
There is no required recovery or downtime after treatment with Juvéderm filler and patients can get right back to their regular routine. Some mild side effects like redness, swelling, and itching at the injection sites can be expected. These should resolve in the next few days. The heat from hot showers or direct sunlight should be avoided in the days following treatment.
After treatment with Juvéderm, patients can enjoy a refreshed appearance with smoothed out lines and wrinkles and more defined facial features. The result of Juvéderm can last for 1-2 years depending on the formula chosen.
