Juvederm

Juvederm for the Miami Frown Lines

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a non-surgical filler that is used to correct deep folds along the sides of the nose, mouth, under the eyes, checks and can be also used to plump up the lips. The skin is able to maintain its turgor, resilience and pliability, among others, due to its high content of water. Daily external injury, in addition to the normal process of aging, causes loss of moisture. Hyaluronic Acid is an essential molecule that retains moisture in the skin. Unlike Botox, Juvederm is made from a modified form of hyaluronic acid (HA), manufactured using proprietary hylarcross technology.

How does Juvederm work?

The loss of HA changes the structure of the skin and volume, creating unwanted parentheses lines around the nose and mouth. Juvederm is a facial filler that can restore the volume to the face. Once injected, Juvederm acts as a sponge – expanding and attracting moisture – to restore volume to the treatment area. Once Juvederm is injected, it causes the skin to stretch and smooth out the wrinkles, restoring the skin to its youthful appearance.

Who is a candidate for Juvederm? 

When considering Juvederm or any other cosmetic procedure, patients are advised to have realistic expectations and discuss any prior medical conditions with their doctor.

Most men and women can be considered good candidates for Juvederm. Women who are pregnant or nursing are recommended to obtain from any dermal filler procedures. Patients who are taking any medication, such as blood thinners, that can prolong bleeding are a t a higher risk or bruising or bleeding at the injection site.

How long does Juvederm last?

Juvederm is one of the longer lasting collagen fillers due to its patented cross linking technology which synthesizes the product into into a gel. Cross linking makes the product more resistant to the enzymes in the body that would eventually break it down. Usually Juvederm can last anywhere from six to nine months depending on the injection site and how quickly the body would metabolize the product. In some areas, such as the lips, the effects can be seen for up to one year. Juvederm is a great add-on treatment option for our Miami Botox patients who, in addition to treating crow’s feet and other wrinkles, wish to add natural-looking volume to the face.

What to expect during treatment?

Prior to the treatment, our injection specialist will clean the area with alcohol and usually apply either a topic anesthetic cream which would take into effect in approximately 30 minutes. In some cases, a dental block (the same treatment that dentists use to numb the area prior to a procedure). The numbing effect usually lasts for about 30 minutes. A series of injections are performed during a 15 -30 minute appointment and the results can be seen right away.

The results can be seen right away, however it may be combined with some swelling. The swelling usually subsides within a couple of days, but can last for up to two weeks. HA absorbs water, small areas of puffiness or fullness often appear in the several hours after treatment, and they are usually only palpable, not visible. These disappear rapidly and are usually gone within a few hours or by the next morning. Some bruising can also occur after the treatment. Patients are able to resume their regular activities immediately after the treatment.

How does Juvederm work?
The science behind Juvederm is fascinating. As we age, our skin looses the ability to hold on to moisture. The loss of Hyauloronic Acid changes the structure of the skin and volume, creating unwanted parentheses lines around the nose and mouth. Juvederm is a remarkable facial filler that uses a gel to promote the hydration of the skin and restore volume to its underlying structure. Once injected, Juvederm acts as a sponge – expanding and attracting moisture. The skin stretches and smoothes out the wrinkles. All this in a short appointment restores your skin to its youthful glory!


Am I a good candidate for Juvederm?
Most likely its a YES! When considering any cosmetic procedure, patients are advised to have realistic expectations. Talk to your doctor and discuss any prior medical conditions.

Most men and women can be considered great candidates if you are trying to correct:

  • Deep facial likes and wrinkles
  • Acne surgical scars or other skin depressions
  • Sunken areas around the eyes and cheekbones
  • Thin or aging lips

Do not get Juvederm if you have:

  • Severe scaring
  • Severe allergies
  • Skin infection on the treatment area
  • Thin or loose skin
  • Unrealistic expectations

Women who are pregnant or nursing are recommended to obtain from any dermal filler procedures. Patients who are taking any medication, such as blood thinners, that can prolong bleeding are at a higher risk of bruising or bleeding at the injection site. Certain neurological diseases are also a contraindication.


How long does Juvederm last?
Juvederm is one of the longer lasting collagen fillers. Its patented cross linking technology which synthesizes the product into a gel. Cross linking makes the product more resistant to the enzymes in the body that would eventually break it down. Usually the effects can up to a year, but this depends on how quickly your body metabolizes the product. When used for lip augmentation, the effects may even last longer!

Our physicians are expert injectors and would also recommend that facial fillers be combined with Botox in Miami for even better results. Botox is a famous neurotoxin that can diminish crows feet lines and other wrinkles on and around the forehead.


What to expect during treatment?

Prior to the treatment, one of our physicians  will clean the area with alcohol and  apply a topic anesthetic cream which would take into effect in approximately 30 minutes. In some cases, a dental block (the same treatment that dentists use to numb the area prior to a procedure) can be used. The numbing effect usually lasts for about 30 minutes. A series of small injections are performed during a 15 – 30 minute appointment and the results can be seen right away. Don’t worry, the area is numb and you won’t feel a thing!


How to take care of yourself after Juvederm injections.
The results are instant! Even though Juvederm is everything kind of awesome, it is perfectly normal for you to experience some minor swelling and bruising. The swelling usually subsides within a couple of days, but in some very rare cases can last for up to two weeks.

HA absorbs water, small areas of puffiness or fullness often appear in the several hours after treatment, and they are usually only palpable, not visible. These disappear rapidly and are usually gone within a few hours or by the next morning.

Although results can be seen immediately with Juvéderm, the final look takes about 3-5 days as the swelling and bruising disaster. It’s important that you don’t apply pressure to the treated areas as this could result in displacement of the filler.


What is Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC?

Whats amazing about Juvederm is that is allows you to choose between three different yet similar compositions. Depending your skin care concerns, the skilled physicians at Avalon Medical Spa will help you choose the best filler. Juvedrm Ultra XC is primarily for contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds. Ultra Plus XC is a more dense formulation that volumizes and corrects much deeper folds. Volume is the first FDA approved facial filler that can be used on the cheeks and it lasts for up to two, yes you hears us TWO years!


What is the difference between Juvederm and other Facial Fillers?
Nothing really compares with how soft and natural your face will look after Juvederm. When compared to other dermal fillers, such as Restylane or Radiesse, the consistency and results are hard to match. Restylane only lasts for about 6-9 months. Radiesse is composed of calcium, making it a great filler for certain areas of the face, but more rigid and harder for others.

Juvederm is the first FDA approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that lasts for up to 12 months! Most importantly, it is perfectly safe for people of all ages and colors. Studies have shown no risks of hyper and hypo pigmentation in darker skinned clients.
