As we age, our skin starts to lose collagen and elastin. We also start to experience volume loss in our face beginning as early as our 30s. There is a very important skin molecule called hyaluronic acid that helps to maintain and restore this volume. It is a molecule that is naturally produced by our bodies and can also be synthetically produced in the form of injectable fillers such as Juvederm®.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is one of several different types of hyaluronic acid fillers and can be used to reverse the effects of aging while also re-creating structural support for the face. Juvederm® products include Voluma, Juvederm® Ultra, Vollure, and Volbella. These injectable fillers work together to restore youthfulness.
Voluma is primarily injected to lift and define the cheeks and jawline. Juvederm® Ultra is used to improve the appearance of deep lines around the mouth and lips. Vollure can also address the appearance of lines around the mouth and lips, but offers more subtle improvement. Volbella helps to smooth and subtly plump the lips and surrounding expression lines.
Not only can Juvederm® fillers be used to maintain and restore a more youthful appearance, but they can also be used to enhance feminine features such as plump lips, contoured cheekbones, and airbrushed expression lines. In a male patient, they can enhance masculine features such as a more defined jawline, strong cheekbones, and improved chin projection.
How Long Does Juvederm® Last?
The results of these filler injections last about 1 to 2 years, and usually a minimum of 1 to 2 syringes of filler per year is recommended for maintenance of a youthful appearance. There is little to no downtime involved after treatment. In fact, it can even be performed on your lunch break!
The number of syringes required to achieve optimal results varies per person and their unique aesthetic goals. Therefore an individualized treatment plan is provided at each consultation. Don’t hesitate to schedule yours today! Contact CPRS in Orlando, Florida.
