Conveniently located to serve Boston, MA
Juvederm in Boston, MA, is a dermal filler family used for aesthetic purposes. These fillers are injected beneath the skin to enhance volume and smooth out moderate to severe creases and folds on the face. The result is an overall more youthful appearance with a softening of lines, wrinkles, and folds.
Juvederm was developed by Allergan (the makers of Botox) in 2002 and has since become one of the most popular dermal fillers on the market. It is FDA-approved, meaning that it has been tested extensively in clinical trials to ensure that it’s safe and effective—and there have been no serious side effects reported by patients who have used it.
What Is Juvederm?
Hyaluronic acid is the main component of Juvederm injectable fillers; it aids in the skin’s ability to retain moisture. Hyaluronic acid promotes tissue regeneration and aids in tissue preservation, which facilitates wound healing.
Juvederm formulations that use gel as their base benefit from Hylacross or Vycross technology, which creates a smoother gel. Juvederm injectables also contain lidocaine, which makes the procedure more comfortable for patients by numbing the treatment region right away.
Who Are Good Candidates for Juvederm Treatment?
Juvederm dermal filler is ideal for patients who want to smooth out lines and wrinkles, plump up lips, and give themselves a more youthful appearance. If you’re interested in Juvederm dermal filler, it’s important to understand that this treatment isn’t right for everyone.
With Juvederm dermal filler, older patients may need more product than younger patients. Additionally, they typically have thinner skin, which can make the effects less obvious than they would be on a younger person.
Juvederm dermal fillers can assist those who are committed to maintaining good skin health and have realistic cosmetic goals.
Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus
Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus are advanced dermal fillers with a smooth consistency and are good for restoring volume and hydration for skin elasticity and support. It is chosen to treat age lines and wrinkles around the mouth, to restore the areas beneath the eyes (tear troughs), and to enlarge the lips.
Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus smooth away smile lines and wrinkles, restore curves and volume, and last for up to one year. It is useful for contouring, volumizing, and smoothing out facial creases.
The thickest filler in the Juvederm family is Juvederm Voluma. It is approved by the FDA to enhance and volumize the cheekbones that run along the zygomatic arch of the face.
The Juvederm Vollure’s formula is primarily used as a medium to light weight filler for areas that require softer product. This may include the lips, but also anyone with thinner tissue where a thicker product would look unnatural. Furthermore, the filler corrects deep indentations without limiting facial movement. It provides longer-lasting results than many other dermal fillers on the market, typically lasting up to 1 year.
The Treatment Session
A tiny needle or sometimes a cannula will be used to directly inject a specific Juvederm dermal filler under the skin of the treatment area. Juvederm fillers already contain the local anesthetic lidocaine, so the area become numb soon after the first injection.
The Juvederm treatment could take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the treated area and the number of sessions required. Juvederm therapy has instant effects that should last for up to 12 months. A healthy lifestyle and regular skin care routine might make the treatment more effective and may make it last longer.
Juvederm Treatment Aftercare
Patients can normally resume their normal activities right after their Juvederm treatment. We suggest that you avoid strenuous activity for the first 24-48 hours to decrease swelling and bruising. Mild redness and numbness are to be expected after the treatment, but they can be minimized in a few hours or days by applying ice or performing moderate massage.
