If you have been looking for an easy way to bring some youth back into your face, Juvederm might be a good treatment option for you.

Juvederm treatment involves the use of dermal fillers to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. This treatment is one of the best options for severe wrinkles such as those extending from the nose down to the corners of the mouth. This treatment has been around for about twelve years, as it was first approved by the FDA in the year 2006.

The actual filler injects hyaluronic acid into the body. Hyaluronic acid forms naturally in the body, but fades away with age. Injecting this acid into the skin helps improve elasticity. This, in turn, smooths the skin’s appearance.

Types of Juvederm Dermal Fillers

While people usually refer to this filler simply as Juvederm, there are many types available. If you are looking for the standard Juvederm filler, you will likely choose Juvederm Ultra. Juvederm Ultra Plus is a little more intense. It helps with extremely deep facial folds. It also tends to be longer lasting than Juvederm Ultra. If you have been losing volume in your cheeks and your chin, you might be interested in Juvederm Voluma. These cheek fillers help to improve the appearance of need nasogenian grooves and nasolabial folds.

If you are looking for safe lip injections, consider Juvederm Volbella. This is a great way to get the pouty-lipped look that is popular these days, while also filling in lines on the lips. Of course, Juvederm Volbella can be performed with varying intensity. We can make your lips slightly more plump and filled if you would not prefer a drastic change.

During the Juvederm treatment, a gel-like substance will be injected into your face. The injection should react either into the middle or deep within the dermis, depending on the severity of your wrinkles. After receiving the treatment, you should notice a lifted, volumized face. The added volume helps to fill in wrinkles and folds.

The injected substance breaks down over a period of around nine months. Because it is biocompatible, it absorbs easily into the body. One aspect of this gel that sets it apart from other face fillers is its pliability. Once inside of your skin, it does not appear as stiff or immovable as other wrinkle fillers. It also tends to last longer, especially if well maintained.

Juvederm injections do not often produce side effects. This does not mean side effects are not possible, however. You might experience redness, and the injection sight might be a bit sensitive for a couple days. Discoloration might also occur. While extremely rare, it is possible that you might experience firmness, swelling, bumps, or bruising. If experienced, these should subside in a week’s time.

Juvederm cost varies depending on the patient, as every treatment plan is different. The cost can range anywhere from 600 to 1,500 per syringe. In severe cases, more than one syringe might be necessary to reach the desired look.

Juvederm Voluma is one of the best ways to combat volume loss in the cheek area of the face. If you are looking to fill a large area and have lasting results, Voluma is likely a great choice for you. While you may consider fat injections in place of Voluma, it is important to know that fat injection are not as reliable. They do not have as predictable of an outcome. They also require fat to be taken from another part of the body, making the treatment more invasive.

Voluma is easy; one step procedure that gives reliable, lasting results. Voluma is also not as prone to forming bumps and lumps or migrating to other areas of the face, as is feared with some dermal fillers. Results can be observed immediately, and they often last up to eighteen months.

Volbella lip fillers are a great way to take care of those pesky smoker’s lines. With age, the body has the tendency to form barcode like wrinkles around the mouth. These are especially prevalent in adults who smoke or have smoked, as they are intensified by those who purse their lips often. Juvederm Volbella helps smooth these wrinkles by injecting hyaluronic acid. This gel can give your mouth area a more youthful appearance.
