Juvederm Q & A
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is one of the leading dermal filler brands on the market. The product line contains several different specialty fillers, but they all use the same key ingredient to place more volume in your skin. That key ingredient is called hyaluronic acid (HA), and you can find lots of it in your skin, eyes, and body tissues. The substance keeps your tissues lubricated and hydrated by latching onto water molecules.
The products in the Juvéderm line all have a smooth consistency that mimics your subdermal fat when placed under your skin. The results look and feel very natural, so it won’t look like you’ve had a cosmetic procedure or surgery.
Juvéderm injections also encourage your body to build its own new collagen. Collagen is a fibrous protein that gives your skin structure and keeps it firm. You lose collagen with age, leading to wrinkles, jowls, and thin skin.
What can Juvéderm fillers do?
Juvéderm’s many products allow your provider to make many potential enhancements to your appearance. Depending on your desired results, your provider may use one or more of these Juvéderm products:
Voluma restores volume to the middle of your face. It can fill your cheeks, giving them a slightly lifted effect similar to a mild face-lift.
Juvéderm Volbella® XC
Volbella specializes in improving your lips. It can make your lips plumper or give them more definition and symmetry. Juvéderm Volbella XC and other Juvéderm products with XC in their name include lidocaine, a numbing agent, in the injection.
Juvéderm Vollure™ XC
Vollure treats wrinkles, lines, and folds around your nose and mouth. It also contains a small amount of lidocaine to make the injection experience more comfortable.
How long do the results of Juvéderm fillers last?
Juvéderm fillers stay in place for nine months to one year or longer. Your body naturally absorbs the hyaluronic acid gel gradually over time, but you can book maintenance injections at Defy Nature to continue enjoying the results. Maintenance injections do not contain as much of the filler as your initial injections.
