Fillers Address Facial Lines and More
Dermal fillers are minimally invasive injectables that can rejuvenate the skin. Fillers are mainly used for reducing or eliminating wrinkles, but many can also restore volume to areas of the face like the cheeks or lips. These injectables can help you look younger and more fresh-faced.
One of the most popular types of facial fillers is Juvederm. In the Juvederm family, there are multiple types of fillers that address specific issues. All of these fillers are clinically tested and FDA-approved.
What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid, or HA, is a naturally occurring substance in the body that aids in keeping the skin plump, moisturized, and healthy-looking.
As we get older, the hyaluronic acid in our bodies naturally depletes. Fillers in the Juvederm family help replenish the body’s concentration of hyaluronic acid.
When injected, Juvederm acts like a sponge to attract moisture into the skin, which creates volume. As a result, it makes the face look plump, supple, and youthful. Juvederm also increases the production of naturally occurring collagen in your skin, which increases its elasticity and overall health.
Products in the Juvederm Family
The four different types of Juvederm are Juvederm, Volbella, Voluma, and Vollure.
Juvederm: Juvederm injections can treat a wide variety of moderate to harsh facial wrinkles in the mid and lower face. It can also be used to rejuvenate and enhance thin lips.
Voluma: Juvederm Voluma is specifically used to restore volume to gaunt and hollow cheeks. It lifts and contours the cheek area for a more sculpted and youthful appearance. Its results can last for up to two years, which means you can get fewer treatments with long-lasting results in comparison to other facial fillers.
Vollure: Juvederm Vollure is designed to smooth away moderate to severe wrinkles around the nose and mouth. It is particularly effective for the nasolabial folds, which are deep lines stretching from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth. The results from Vollure injections can last for up to eighteen months.
Volbella: Juvederm Volbella is used for lip augmentation. It is an ideal way to enhance and volumize thin lips, adding definition and beauty. It can also treat fine lines around the mouth, also known as smoker’s lines or lipstick lines. The results from Volbella injections can last for up to a year.
What to Expect from Juvederm Injections
Before receiving your Juvederm treatment, Dr. Geiger will examine your face and mark the targeted areas where you will be receiving your injections. The chosen Juvederm treatment will be administered via injection.
The length of the procedure generally ranges from fifteen to thirty minutes, depending on the number of injections you receive. You may experience mild redness, bruising, or swelling at the injection site. These temporary side effects will go away in a day or two.
