Today’s world is full of treatment options when it comes to combating the signs of aging, so selecting the best treatment option that works for you and your needs can sometimes feel complicated or overwhelming. At InjectAbility Clinic, we use Juvederm to help address issues that come with aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, hollowness, and loss of volume.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are a family of highly effective injectables that help reduce the signs of aging using dermal fillers. These fillers are designed to restore a youthful appearance by smoothing out lines and wrinkles as well as addressing additional signs of facial aging such as hollowness and loss of volume.
Available in different formulas depending on the treatment areas and severity, Juvederm can be used, on label, in 90% of the face. The variations range from thin formulas to address fine lines to thicker formulas that are used to fill deeper wrinkles and hollow areas throughout the face. Juvederm Ultra is also an option for those who want to increase lip volume for an overall more full and youthful appearance.
Volbella is used to treat minor to moderate lines, wrinkles, and creases on the face, specifically lipstick lines. This formula is thinner than its counterparts, making it ideal for smaller sections that need to be smoothed and filled as well as minor lines and wrinkles in the face.
Juvederm Ultra Plus
Juvederm Ultra Plus uses a thicker formula to address deeper lines, wrinkles, and creases on the face. Thanks to its thicker formula, this injectable can be used to fill imperfections beyond just lines and wrinkles, like shadows.
Juvederm injections are approved by the FDA and are regarded as safe and effective when combating the signs of facial aging. As a non-invasive procedure, Juvederm and Juvederm Ultra injections have become a popular choice for anyone looking into non-invasive filler injections.
The Juvederm Process
When you see the term XC accompanying the name Juvederm, that stands for extra comfort and alludes to a small amount of lidocaine added to the product. Since Juvederm is a non-invasive procedure, it’s easy to schedule your appointment and get in and out quickly. Juvederm is one of the safest filler injectables on the market that is FDA-approved for use in 90% of the face. Before any procedure, you’ll schedule an initial consultation with us to determine the best approach to fulfilling your needs.
Before getting your injection, you’ll discuss your areas of concern, health issues, medications, and other important medical information with us during your initial consultation. We will assist you in selecting the injection that best addresses your areas of concern based on your needs and previous history with injectable fillers.
On the day of your scheduled injection, you’ll relax and topical numbing will be applied for even more comfort. The procedure can take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes depending on the area of treatment. Minor discomfort during your injection can be reduced with additional comfort measures, we offer ice, distraction, and Pronox if you choose.
Recovery times can be only a few hours, with redness and swelling, or up to two weeks with some potential bruising, but you’ll be back to enjoying your daily routine in no time.
While recovering from your treatment, you might notice minor swelling and bruises around the injection site. This should ease within two weeks leaving you with a fuller and more youthful appearance that you’ll be proud to show off.
During your recovery, it’s important to take proper care of your injection area by keeping it clean and following our provided aftercare instructions. Some of the things to keep in mind while recovering include:
- Avoid topical products around the injection site for 24 hours
- Avoid unnecessary sun exposure until bruising heals
- Avoid makeup for 24 hours
The Difference Between Juvederm and Botox
The main difference when it comes to fighting the signs of aging using Juvederm or Botox comes down to how they work and the ingredients used. While both can help reduce wrinkles and leave you with a smoother and younger appearance, there are some main differences between the two.
Juvederm is made from a hyaluronic acid that is designed to fill in wrinkles and lines as well as add volume. It is available in different formulas to treat specific areas and wrinkles throughout the face in adults.
Containing botulinum toxin A, Botox reduces wrinkles by relaxing and stilling the muscles. This relaxes the wrinkles and lines around the injection site and they become less noticeable due to the limited movement.
