Juvederm is a smooth consistency injectable gel dermal filler derived from hyaluronic acid, a natural complex sugar found within the body. It helps to restore the volume between collagen and elastin fibers below the surface of the skin resulting in the diminished appearance of wrinkles and folds for a younger appearance. One of the advantages of Juvederm is its smooth, pliant texture, which contributes to its soft, natural-looking results. When injected below the surface of the skin, Juvederm replaces the hyaluronic acid that has been lost over time. As it integrates between the collagen and elastin, the hyaluronic acid not only restores volume but also improves the hydration of the skin. Juvederm was approved by the FDA in 2006 for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles, folds, and lines.
Because Juvederm is a fully biodegradable and biocompatible gel based on a natural substance, there is little or no risk of allergic reactions that can sometimes occur as a result of treatments that utilize animal-derived fillers. No pre-testing is required and, as Juvederm breaks down, it is easily absorbed by the body. Any discomfort following treatment should disappear within 48-72 hours. The length of treatment session varies from client to client, based on how many areas require correction and how many applications of Juvederm will be required to achieve optimal results. In general, Juvederm treatments range from 30 minutes to an hour and can be easily scheduled between other appointments. No recovery time is required so clients can return to daily activities immediately.
Ideal candidates for Juvederm treatment are those with moderate to deep facial lines and folds or who desire greater volume in areas like the lips or hands. Juvederm is the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved by the FDA for use on all skin types. Because of its high concentration of hyaluronic acid and its ability to naturally integrate with the body’s tissues, Juvederm has been shown to be a long-lasting wrinkle correction option. While results vary, FDA-approved studies show that the benefits of Juvederm can last up to a full year. Occasional maintenance treatments can help to ensure optimal results of Juvederm and create even longer lasting results as seen in clients who have experienced the benefits of Juvederm for up to two years.
Juvéderm VOLUMATM XC
Persona is proud to offer clients Juvederm Voluma XC (Voluma) with Lidocaine, the latest dermal filler created by Allergan, makers of BOTOX Cosmetic. Voluma is FDA-approved to treat volume loss in the cheek area and is the first of its kind to be approved for that specific use.
When injected, Voluma works to replenish lost skin volume to regain a youthful curve to the cheeks and can be used to enhance the overall shape of the face. It is an injectable hyaluronic acid filler that adds volume to areas that need support or enhancement, and because it contains Lidocaine, treatment is simple and comfortable. Depending on the number of syringes to be injected, treatment may take up to an hour. Shortly after treatment with Voluma, patients notice that their facial contours appear rounded and lifted, giving the face a softer, more youthful appearance, which can last up to two years, considerably longer than other fillers on the market.
Juvederm Voluma is the latest in a range of hyaluronic acid fillers, designed to restore volume in areas of volume loss. Common areas include the cheeks, cheekbones, and temporal areas. Additionally, due to its versatility it is also suitable for adding definition to the jaw line. But what sets it apart is its FDA-approval for previously “off-label” areas such as the cheeks and its longer life span in the body.
As we age, facial fat loss, gravity and loss of the skin’s natural elasticity cause us to look older as the mid face flattens and hollows. Voluma is an exceptional treatment to restore volume, refresh your look and give you a more youthful appearance.
