Juvederm is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that helps add volume to desired areas on the face, such as the lips and cheeks.
Dermal fillers like Juvederm are used to counteract the signs of aging, filling in wrinkles to give the skin a more smooth, plump appearance.
If you are looking to treat yourself with Juvederm in Los Angeles, Laureate Aesthetics is the place to go!
In this article, we are going to be talking about:
Juvederm is a type of dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid that is used to add volume to desired areas on the face.
The main purpose of hyaluronic acid (HA) is to add nutrients to the skin and help it retain moisture. Your body naturally produces HA to help your skin and other tissue in your body moist and lubricated, such as your eyes and between joints.
Aging leads to depletion of HA and collagen in the body and therefore, leaving the skin looking loose and wrinkled. Juvederm, therefore, aims to counteract the aging processes.
In terms of Juvederm, HA helps the skin look more supple and adds volume where it is necessary.
Juvederm works by stimulating the production of collagen in the tissue, which is what keeps our skin looking young and plump.
You will see results instantly after getting Juvederm and they can last up to two years but this is dependent on the type of Juvederm you get.
Depending on where you want more volume, there are different types of Juvederm, all of which target aging.
They differ based on their concentrations of hyaluronic acid and where they are injected in the face.
Let’s give a brief overview of the different types of Juvederm :
Juvederm Voluma XC is used to add volume to the cheeks. It is injected deep into the cheek area to help with the loss of volume in the face due to aging. This type of Juvederm is also used to correct chin profiles by injecting them into the chin.
Juvederm XC and Juvederm Vollure XC are injected into the face, specifically in the smile lines around the mouth and nose. This type of Juvederm is to help fill the smile lines or nasolabial folds, which are a common sign of aging.
Additionally. Juvederm XC and Juvederm Vollure XC are used to correct deep wrinkles in the face.
Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Volbella XC are used to augment the size of the lips and are more commonly referred to as lip fillers.
Although there are other lip fillers available, Juvederm is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments for lip enhancement.
Now, let’s discuss the actual procedure of getting Juvederm so that you know what to expect on the day of your appointment!
First, your doctor or nurse will discuss your medical history, which area you want to be treated, and your goals for the treatment. Be ready to talk about your aesthetic concerns so that your doctor can explain what will work best for your face shape.
Going to a professional is extremely important for this reason. Professionals will know what compliments your face while also helping you achieve your desired look.
Once the type of filler is selected, the doctor or nurse will mark where on your face the fillers will be injected.
If you are concerned about the pain of the injection, the area will be slightly numbed with a topical numbing cream.
Additionally, the actual injection has a “pain-reducing lidocaine,” which helps decrease the amount of pain felt during the injection.
The Juvederm will then be injected into the area and your doctor or nurse will massage the area so that the filler is eventually distributed under the skin.
The procedure is super fast and easy and should take between 15 and 60 minutes total to complete!
Obviously, if you are getting more than one area injected or a larger area injected, the procedure will be longer.
Since the procedure is non-surgical, there is no need for extensive recovery time. However, do not do any strenuous activity or drink alcohol for up to 24 hours after the treatment.
At Laureate Aesthetics, we charge $500 for 1ml of Juvederm Ultra XC and 325 for half a syringe.
Although the results will be lasting, in order to maintain these results, it is important to come in for touch-ups.
