Overview

Juvederm is a popular derma filler that contains a unique cross-linked hyaluronic acid for lasting improvement of many concerns, from fine lines to deeper folds. It’s also great for filling in vertical lip lines and sculpting the lips. While there are many hyaluronic acid-based fillers on the market today, our Sarasota cosmetic surgery practice prefers Juvederm because it has been proven to provide safe, effective and lasting results for up to a full year. We offer two types of juvederm, including Juvederm XC, which is effective around the nose and mouth, and Juvederm Voluma XC, which works great for adding volume to the cheeks.

What to Expect

Juvederm is a gel substance that is administered via a fine needle directly into the skin. There is no sedation needed, although a numbing cream is usually applied first to help with any discomfort. The injection sites will be sterilized and marked with ink. Once the filler is injected, results are immediately noticeable. The practitioner may massage the treated area so the filler spreads evenly. Other than temporary redness, the treatment has no after effect that will prevent a patient from going back to normal routine. Patients should avoid strenuous exercise for approximately 24 hours. After a Juvederm injection, the face will look refreshed, softer and smoother.

Juvederm FAQs

How Painful?

This procedure is almost pain-free. This really is determined on a patient’s overall pain tolerance. The product is administered with a fine injection needle and a numbing cream is usually applied first to help with any discomfort. After the treatment, tingling sensations may occur, and there could be some swelling and bruising. These after effects are temporary and usually subside within a few hours.

Anti-Aging Alternative?

Derma fillers have an outstanding track record for successfully reducing signs of aging with less risk than surgical cosmetic treatments. Other nonsurgical options include wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX and Dysport. Severe cosmetic issues such as loose and sagging skin may be better resolved by a surgical facelift. The approach taken will be based on the patient’s cosmetic condition and aesthetic goals.

Back to 20?

It is important to set realistic expectations when undergoing any cosmetic enhancement procedure. While the treatment does take years off the face, it can only do so much for patients who have severe wrinkles and skin irregularities. Juvederm will definitely help decrease fine wrinkles and creases, and the skin will appear smoother and softer.
