Juvéderm products work to reduce the signs of aging by replacing the loss of volume that inevitably occurs as we get older. It is especially helpful for increasing the volume in cheeks and lips. A benefit of hyaluronic acid is that it attracts moisture and can hold 1,000 times its weight in water. This deeply hydrates the skin and naturally plumps it for a natural, fresh look.
While all Juvéderm products are hyaluronic acid-based, each has been designed to target a specific type of facial tissue and a specific type of problem.
Juvéderm is a moderately thick filler, somewhat like slightly diluted honey, though the thickness of each of the family of fillers differs slightly. They contain lidocaine, which can help reduce the sting of the injection. Depending upon the product and site into which it is injected, a treatment can last from nine months up to two years.
Over time, loss of volume in the upper cheek area may cause the cheeks to flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. While usually associated with again, this may also be the result of genetic and/or environmental factors. Whatever the precipitating cause, JUVEDÉRM VOLUMA XC will add volume to lift and contour the cheeks, restoring a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Because it is not as thick as some other dermal fillers, it may be injected in combination with them. As a top layer, it not only adds volume, but creates a very smooth appearance to the skin.
This requires a somewhat higher degree of finesse than a single-product application—a nuanced approach that Dr. Kaado has perfected in his years of studying advanced techniques around the world.
Two of the more telltale areas that result from sagging skin are moderate to deep wrinkles in the nasolabial folds (laugh lines) and marionette lines, which run from the corners of the mouth down to the chin. Unlike loss of volume, wrinkles or sagging skin in other areas of the face that can simply make you look older, marionette lines can actually make you look sad or angry, even when your face is at rest.
JUVEDÉRM VOLLURE XC can fill in the wrinkles in the nasolabial folds as well as marionette lines, so you not only look younger but have a face that reflects your true emotions.
Every woman wants to have lush, full, alluring lips, but aging, genetics or even cosmetic dentistry can cause them to look thin and/or poorly defined.
This is easily remedied with JUVEDERM ULTRA XC, which has become one of the more popular products for lip augmentation.
Even if you’ve never smoked, vertical lip lines, also called “perioral” (meaning around the mouth) lines, are very common. They can result from activities, such as pursing your lips or kissing.
JUVEDÉRM VOLBELLA XC is a favored injectable for filling in vertical lip lines. Additionally, while JUVEDÉRM ULTRA XC was formulated specifically as a filler to add volume to thin lips, JUVEDÉRM VOLBELLA XC can be used to add subtle volume, as well.
There are certain situations and conditions for which one or more Juvederm has not been studied and/or established as to safety and effectiveness in clinical trials, including:
You should also tell Dr. Kaado if:
Dr. Kaado is always keeping up with the latest advancements when it comes to aesthetic and anti-aging medicine so as to get best patient results, faster recovery and less pain.
One of the advancements is using cannulas versus needles for dermal fillers. A cannula is a thin tube with a blunt tip used to deliver or remove fluid from the body. Using a cannula as opposed to a needle produces superior results, the treatment is faster and less painful, and it is safer as it cannot mistakenly pierce vein or artery.
