Juvéderm is one of the most popular cosmetic fillers that softens superficial depressions such as fine lines, folds, and wrinkles on the face. Approved by the FDA in 2006, Juvéderm has helped millions of men and women improve mild to moderate facial creases around the nose and lips. More specifically, Juvéderm targets and treats:
- Nasolabial Folds
- Vertical Lip Lines
- Marionette Lines
- Oral Commissures (the area where the upper and lower lips meet)
- Chin Wrinkles
Five Amazing Benefits of Juvéderm® Treatments
At Vibe MedSpas, we want to help you find the right treatment that targets areas you would like to improve. If you are considering smoothing out fine lines, wrinkles, and other skin imperfections on the face that appear over time with age, here are some of the advantages you can enjoy from Juvéderm.
Juvéderm delivers longer-lasting improvements when compared to collagen fillers and similar hyaluronic fillers. Many collagen fillers begin to break down within the first two months after application, while Juvéderm can last for up to six, eight, and even 12 months for some.
As with other fillers, Juvéderm is injected into the skin via a fine needle. But unlike other fillers, Juvéderm applications are considered to be less painful because they contain a small amount of lidocaine, a local anesthetic that reduces pain and discomfort. It’s important to keep in mind that each patient is different. While some patients experience some discomfort during and after application, many patients report only a slight pinch during the procedure, and little-to-know discomfort after.
Derived from Hyaluronic Acid
Unlike other cosmetic fillers, Juvéderm is derived from hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that assists with moisture and nutrient retention that is essential for healthy skin. As a derivative of hyaluronic acid, Juvéderm gradually breaks down over time. As the filler breaks down, it is reabsorbed into the tissues in the body.
Delivers a More Natural Appearance
Juvéderm is one of the most sought-after cosmetic fillers among both men and women because it delivers a much more natural-looking appearance than others derived from collagen. Juvéderm can be molded and formed more naturally under fine lines, wrinkles, and folds, delivering softer results that appear natural.
Available in Different Formulations
Dermal fillers like Juvéderm are available in a wide variety of formulations that are meant to target and treat a range of imperfections that come along with age. Juvéderm Ultra XC is one of the most popular formulations that we offer at our med spa in Scottsdale. This particular formulation is ideal for correcting and improving moderate to severe fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face around the nose (nasolabial folds) and is also used for lip augmentation.
