What Is Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® is a hyaluronic acid gel-based filler. Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of your skin, making up 40 percent of the deepest layer of your skin (the dermis). As we age, we naturally lose some of our hyaluronic acid. When injected under the skin, this popular dermal filler replenishes volume and smooths wrinkles. Juvéderm® injections take about 30 minutes to administer, and provide outstanding results for up to one year.
How Much Does Juvéderm® Cost?
The cost of Juvéderm® at Clarkston Dermatology can vary depending on a number of different factors. The amount of dermal filler needed will be determined by the depth of the wrinkles, size of the treatment area, and fullness desired. We will be sure to work with you so that your treatment doesn’t cost an arm and a leg! For your convenience and to make treatment as affordable as possible, we offer CareCredit® financing.
Am I a Good Candidate for Juvéderm?
Anyone looking for a soft, natural correction for fuller lips, nasolabial folds, or marionette lines are potentially excellent candidates for Juvéderm®. All skin types are eligible for this type of treatment as long as you do not have severe allergies or a history of severe allergic reactions.
What Can I Expect After My Juvéderm Treatment?
Juvéderm® may cause some initial discomfort during treatment that can continue in the days following treatment. Our goal is to make sure you get the results you desire with as little discomfort as possible. Although we take every step to ensure the best results, some of the most common side effects include temporary injection site reactions such as:
As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection in the treated area. If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, or any abnormal sensations or effects, be sure to call us as soon as possible so that we may help you during your recovery period.
How Long Does Juvéderm Last?
The results from Juvéderm® are temporary, lasting up to one year with correct treatment. Touch-up injections and repeat injections are often needed to maintain the desired results. Less material is usually needed with repeat injections at regular intervals. Many people turn to Juvéderm® because of the ease with which touch-ups can freshen their appearance affordably and quickly.
What Is Juvéderm Voluma®?
Juvéderm Voluma® is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler formulated to treat the midface, specifically designed to restore age-related volume changes in the cheeks. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance already found in the body that aids in the binding of water to cells. Its unique cross-linking properties help to provide a “lifting” effect, all without surgery. The result is a more volumized, youthful appearance with noticeably improved cheekbone definition.
Is Juvéderm Voluma® Safe?
Juvéderm Voluma® XC is the first and only injectable gel to be FDA-approved to instantly correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area for people over 21 years old. The common side effects are typically minor, such as mild swelling and bruising, that can be covered by everyday concealer/makeup.
What Is the Difference Between Juvéderm Voluma® and Juvéderm® XC?
Both are products in the Allergan family of injectable dermal fillers. Juvéderm® XC is a non-surgical filler designed to smooth out moderate to severe lines along the sides of your nose and mouth with optimal results up to one year. Juvéderm Voluma® is an injectable gel filler used in the cheek area to add volume, create contour, and lift for up to two years with optimal treatment.
Juvéderm® injections are a minimally invasive solution to achieving full, kissable lips or restoring more youthful contours to your face without the risks and downtime of surgery.
