Over time, several factors in our everyday life can wreak havoc on the appearance of our face. Normal regular lip movements, sunlight, and even smoking can lead to lines around the mouth and lips. Smile lines (vertical lines just outside the corners of your lips), and marionette lines (creases or folds that run vertically from the corners of the mouth down to the chin), can lead to appearing older than you wish.
Juvéderm can help get rid of deep creases, unsightly wrinkles, and fine lines without surgery. Juvéderm provides instant and long-lasting results for lip augmentation and for correction of lines around the mouth to help you get the look you want. Schedule a consultation today and take advantage of the best lip injections Twin Falls has to offer.
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is a cosmetic treatment and FDA-approved dermal filler that is used successfully to restore facial contours and get rid of the signs of aging. This injectable dermal filler is made of hyaluronic acid and is used to treat signs of aging on the face – especially the lips, cheeks, and around the mouth. Today, Juvéderm is one of the most sought-after nonsurgical cosmetic treatments for reversing the effects of aging.
What are the Advantages of Juvéderm?
There are several dermal fillers available on the market today, but not many provide as much safety and long-lasting results, without side effects, as Juvéderm. Juvéderm provides immediate results that can last for up to 2 years, giving you the option for a fast and minimally invasive treatment that produces a natural look while eliminating facial creases and folds.
There are several Juvéderm products available today. While each of these products are hyaluronic acid-based, each product is specifically designed to target very specific conditions when they are injected at different depths in different areas.
Before and After
The Juvéderm Family of Fillers are Available as Follows:
Juvéderm Voluma XC: For added volume just under the skin’s surface, to increase lost volume in your cheeks. Juvéderm leaves you with a healthy, youthful glow.
Juvéderm Vollure XC and Juvéderm XC: To help the skin regain lost elasticity, fill out wrinkles and age lines around the nose and mouth.
Juvéderm Ultra XC and Juvéderm Volbella XC: For lip enhancement. A single treatment will leave your lips looking plump and full.
Juvéderm is a minimally invasive procedure that gives you long-lasting, natural-looking results. One of the big advantages of Juvéderm is that if you don’t like how you look after treatment, you are not stuck with the look. Being a biodegradable dermal filler, it stays under the skin only until the body is ready to break it down. Once the body breaks it down (over time), you will get back your original appearance. Juvéderm treatment sessions are shorter than most dermal filler treatments and there is no need for a topical anesthetic, as Juvéderm contains lidocaine, which is a pain-reducing anesthetic.
How Does Juvéderm Work?
Juvéderm’s active ingredient is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance within the human body. It is responsible for the production of connective tissue (collagen) that plumps up the skin. Unfortunately, as we grow older, there is a decreased production of hyaluronic acid, which in turn decreases the production of collagen. As the production of collagen decreases, the skin begins to sag and form wrinkles. Thanks to hyaluronic acid, Juvéderm restores lost volume in facial tissue.
What is the Treatment Experience Like?
The procedure begins with a consultation to determine if Juvéderm is the best course of treatment for you. We will also discuss the right type of Juvéderm treatment based on the results you desire. For example, if you want fuller lips, then Juvéderm Ultra XC and Juvéderm Volbella XC are two types of possible Juvéderm treatments available to you. If you are seeking smoother skin, then Juvéderm Vollure XC and Juvéderm XC are two possible treatment options for you.
Once the best treatment plan has been determined for you, the targeted areas to be treated are marked for the procedure. The Juvéderm dermal filler is then injected into the target areas. Next, the areas are lightly massaged for a while to ensure the content of the injections are evenly distributed under the skin. This also reduces the chance of any swelling. This entire procedure can last anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the number of areas that require treatment.
What can You Expect After Juvéderm Treatment?
Juvéderm treatment is minimally invasive, pain-free (thanks to the lidocaine in the gel), and is, on the whole, a very comfortable procedure. However, you might experience some mild side effects such as:
- Minor pain
- Lumps or bumps
These side effects are natural and are no cause for concern. The side effects will disappear anywhere between two and four weeks after treatment. You will be advised to avoid strenuous activity, makeup, sun exposure, and consuming alcohol for at least 24 hours after your Juvéderm treatment. You can expect your Juvéderm results to last for up to 2 years.
Serious side effects are known to occur from unprofessional handling. At Majestic Aesthetics you will be under the care of a Board-Certified Nurse Practitioner, with over 13 years of experience in the medical field. She is also a certified Juvéderm specialist so you can rest assured that you are in good hands and will receive the best possible care.
