Juvederm Q & A

What is Juvéderm?

Juvéderm®  is a group of dermal fillers made from manufactured hyaluronic acid. Your body’s own natural hyaluronic acid, which helps keep your skin plump and youthful, decreases over time. That can lead to deep wrinkles, thin lips, and a general lack of facial firmness.

Juvéderm fillers include a chemically identical copy of natural hyaluronic acid. The Juvéderm fillers also have a special additive that cross-links the hyaluronic acid molecules together to ensure that they remain in the area where they’re injected rather than flowing freely as natural hyaluronic acid does.

Juvéderm products add volume for 12-24 months, depending on the formula used and the place where it’s injected.

What kind of Juvéderm is best for my lips?

There are two Juvéderm formulas that work well in the lips, Juvéderm Volbella® XC and Juvéderm Ultra XC. Juvéderm Volbella is best for smoker’s lines around the lips or for subtle volume increase. Juvéderm Ultra XC is best if you want more fullness or if your lips are thin due to aging. Both formulas last around 12 months.

What kind of Juvéderm is best for wrinkles?

Juvéderm has two formulas for wrinkles, Juvéderm Ultra XC and Juvéderm Vollure. Both smooth out the smile lines, also called parentheses lines, around your nose and mouth. Juvéderm Ultra XC lasts for around 12 months and Juvéderm Vollure lasts for around 18 months.

What kind of Juvéderm helps with sunken cheeks?

For age-related volume loss in the cheeks and mid-face area, Juvéderm Voluma® XC is a great choice. Juvéderm Voluma smooths away sunken cheeks and creates a subtle lifting effect that helps you look years younger. Juvéderm Voluma lasts for up to two years, making it the only dermal filler proven to last that long in the cheek area.

What can I expect after Juvéderm treatment?

One of the best benefits of Juvéderm and other dermal fillers is that there’s no downtime at all. An expert injector typically completes your Juvéderm treatment in an hour or less at Salinas Valley Medical Aesthetics. You’ll see results instantly. Although you may have some mild swelling and bruising, this goes away within a few days. You can return to work right away.
