If you are interested in improving your facial volume, reducing wrinkles, and ultimately looking younger, then the Juvederm collection of dermal fillers may be a great option for anti-aging regimen. This collection of FDA-approved dermal fillers is specially formulate to treat a range of aesthetic needs. Juvederm has a filler to add volume to different areas of the face including the cheeks, mouth and lips. Depending on your needs and goals, your injection consultant may suggest one of the following fillers:

Juvederm Ultra & Ultra Plus: Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus are excellent injections for treating mouth lines and folds. These dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid to plump up nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth.  The main difference between these two treatments is the size of the hyaluronic acid particles in the injection gel.  Juvederm Ultra contains smaller particles, making it an appropriate treatment for mild to moderate nasolabial folds.  Juvederm Ultra Plus contains larger hyaluronic acid particles for severe nasolabial folds. Juvederm Ultra usually lasts for up to six months, while Juvederm Ultra Plus lasts for up to twelve months.

Juvederm Volbella XC: Volbella XC is a dermal filler specially formulated for lip augmentation. It is also used for the treatment of perioral lines around the mouth.  Volbella contains thinner particles of hyaluronic acid, which instantly plumps up the lip while maintaining a natural look and feel. Volbella is an excellent solution for patients who may feel self-conscious about thinning lips or wrinkles around the mouth.  Results can last for up to one year.

Juvederm Voluma XC: Voluma XC is designed to add volume to the cheek area. This injection corrects age-related volume loss, as well as smooths out wrinkles and lines in the cheek area.  Voluma contains thicker hyaluronic acid particles, which act as scaffolding in the cheek region.  This helps build up noticeable volume that can last for up to two years.

What Happens During the Treatment?

Juvederm injections can take less than 30 minutes to administer.  Before your treatment, you and your MDCosmedX practitioner will determine which injection type is best for your needs and goals.

Once the Juvederm formula is injected into your treatment area, you should see results within two to three days after the injection.  The final results of your procedure will largely depend on the injection type you opt for.

Does the Treatment Hurt?

Your MDCosmedX practitioner can use a topical numbing cream and ice to manage any discomfort associated with your Juvederm injections.  You may experience temporary tenderness and itching during the injection procedure.

Is There Any Downtime?

There is no downtime associated with Juvederm injections.  Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment.  The most common side effects include swelling, bruising, headaches, and pain at the injection site.  Most side effects disappear within a few days after the treatment.
