What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler.

Juvederm fillers have smooth and gel-like consistency, making it easy to customize delivery into different facial areas and depths. To properly address signs of aging, Juvederm offers a family of products targeting different areas of your face. 

Juvederm soft tissue fillers can be specifically molded to deliver natural looking results in the following areas:

  • Juvederm Voluma XC 

Is the filler of choice for those who want to have supple-looking cheeks. Sunken or sagging cheeks make you appear older than you actually are. To support the cheek’s structure beneath the skin, Juvederm Voluma XC is injected to fill in lost volume. It also triggers the production of collagen so you look vibrant and refreshed. 

  • Juvederm XC and Juvederm Vollure XC 

The dermal filler ideal for those who want to smooth out lines and wrinkles. Juvederm XC and Juvederm Vollure XC are made with gel-like consistency that make it ideal for use in filling out medium to deep wrinkles and smile lines. Deep lines around the mouth make the face appear tired or sad, so if you want to perk up this area, consider getting this type of Juvederm treatment.

  • Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Volbella XC 

Supple cheeks are made all the more expressive with plump lips. Thin lips suggest a loss of collagen, and a loss of youthful vibrancy. If you’ve always wanted to have more luscious looking lips with as little pain as possible, Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Volbella XC are nonsurgical lip enhancement options that deliver natural-looking results.

How Juvederm works

Natural aging process, lifestyle, genetic factors and skin care routines all contribute to the appearance of wrinkles and sagging of the skin. The connective tissue called collagen weakens, resulting to skin-related aging symptoms.

Dermal fillers plump up sagging and wrinkled facial areas with the use of gel-like substances. Juvederm rejuvenates target areas through its active ingredient, hyaluronic acid. This natural substance is found in large concentrations in soft connective tissues, and in fluid surrounding the cartilage, joint and the eyes. Hyaluronic acid is harvested and then made into injectable dermal filler with the brand name Juvederm.

Hyaluronic acid helps stimulate the skin’s primary support structure so it doesn’t collapse as easily. Juvederm triggers the production of collagen so your face achieves nonsurgical facelift over a period of one to two years, with results often seen right away.

Because it is biocompatible or easily accepted by the body, Juvederm treatment may be given on the very same day of your consultation with an aesthetician in New York. As it’s made from components naturally found in the human body, prior testing may not be necessary for patients not prone to allergy.

What to expect from a Juvederm procedure?

Your target area will be marked with a pen by the doctor, nurse or assistant. Then Juvederm will be delivered, with the area lightly massaged so as to reduce swelling and ensure even distribution of the substance. Depending on which area is injected, the entire treatment may last from 15 minutes to an hour.

To minimize discomfort, Juvederm injectable fillers often contain tiny amounts of pain-reducers. The pain typically subsides quickly, so you can excitedly look forward to a revitalized you after the procedure.

What to do before getting a Juvederm treatment? 

Undergoing a cosmetic treatment is a highly personal decision so discuss your goals and expectations with your New York dermatologist. Juvederm treatment is a minimally invasive procedure, but you still need to understand the risks involved and the timeline of results. 

Because it is mostly a nonsurgical procedure with little preparations or downtime required, you may be able to consult with a dermatologist or aesthetician and get Juvederm treatment in New York on the same day.

You may have to refrain from doing certain things to avoid risks on the day of the procedure and to increase the efficacy post-treatment

  • Avoid taking blood-thinning medications or herbal supplements
  • Don’t smoke and drink alcohol in the weeks leading up to your treatment
  • Let your doctor know of your allergies

What to do after getting Juvederm treatment?

Because there is no surgery involved, Juvederm treatment requires little downtime, at least 24 hours after the procedure.

Alcohol intake, use of cosmetics, exposure to sun and strenuous activity are prohibited during this healing period. Expect minimal swelling, but this too gradually goes away, after which you might notice the effects. Depending on which Juvederm product was applied, you may see results lasting from six months to two years.

What are Juvederm’s side effects?

Swelling and bruising are normal effects post-treatment, along with itching, tenderness, minor pain, redness, or lumps/bumps. These usually go away from two weeks to four weeks.  

Some complications may arise with the delivery of the dermal filler. Unintended injection into susceptible areas may occur, which could result to tissue death due to disrupted blood flow. That’s why it’s vital to get your New York Juvederm treatment from an expert skin care practitioner who develops a treatment plan that meets your individual goals.
