The Juvederm Collection: Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
“Juvederm” is a collection of fillers that uses a synthetic gel form of hyaluronic acid to smooth lines and wrinkles, enhance the cheeks, and augment the lips. These Allergan fillers are designed to improve the appearance by treating the signs of aging, flattering the features, and restoring volume to the face.
They can also help create or restore aesthetic proportions to the face. This highly esteemed collection of Allergan fillers has a reputation for its versatility, durability, and ability to deliver results to patients with all different aesthetic and aging-related concerns.
Juvederm Ultra ($599)
Juvederm Ultra is a formulation that can treat both the lips and facial lines and folds that form around the mouth. This filler is a good option for those who have never received lip injections and want to maintain a more conservative-looking appearance post-treatment. It can restore volume to lips that have thinned due to aging or simply increase the size and proportion of the lips.
Additionally, Juvederm Ultra can smooth moderate to severe lines around the mouth to help create a more youthful and wrinkle-free appearance. When you choose this filler to meet your aesthetic or anti-aging needs, you can expect your results to last up to one year.
Juvederm Ultra Plus ($699)
Juvederm Ultra Plus is a thicker and longer-lasting formula than Ultra and is designed to meet the needs of patients who have more severe lines, wrinkles, and facial folds. Basically, if you want to smooth lines around the mouth, including smile lines, nasolabial folds, and parentheses lines, but need a filler with a thicker formulation, the Ultra Plus formulation is the perfect option. Juvederm Ultra Plus will last up to one year with optimal treatment.
Voluma is the filler from this collection that is specifically designed to restore volume to the cheeks and chin. As you age, your cheeks and chin can begin to flatten and droop as they lose volume, but this particular filler can redefine these areas and restore youth to your appearance. It contains a cross-linked hyaluronic acid formula, which helps it deliver a lifting effect when used during treatment. Voluma is the longest-lasting dermal filler on the beauty market. It delivers results that last up to two years.
The Treatment Process
When you choose one of these Allergan Fillers to meet your aesthetic needs, you can expect a comfortable and quick treatment process. Each of these fillers is formulated with lidocaine, a mild numbing agent that helps make the injection process comfortable by alleviating discomfort both during and after your treatment.
Additionally, each of these fillers is fitted with a super-fine needle, another aspect of the treatment that helps make it quick and comfortable. The entire process only takes a few minutes to complete, and then you can resume your normal daily activities.
Before you arrive at your appointment, there are some ways that you will need to prepare to ensure that you achieve the best results. We ask patients to schedule their filler appointments with specific life events in mind. If you want to get fillers to help you look your best before a special event, make sure that you schedule your filler appointment a week in advance so that you can achieve your final results before your event.
Additionally, don’t schedule any dental appointments two weeks before your filler appointment. We ask patients to avoid certain blood thinners, including aspirin, ibuprofen, and specific supplements that act as blood thinners, as well as red wine, for three to seven days before your treatment.
Once you undergo this treatment, you won’t have to plan around downtime, but we will ask you to follow some post-treatment care instructions to achieve the best results. We encourage you to call us with any questions and schedule a follow-up treatment so that we can evaluate your results together and make touchups as needed. This follow-up visit also helps us determine how to best treat your area of concern at future visits.
What To Avoid
You will need to avoid sleeping on your stomach and instead sleep on your back with your head elevated for one to two days post-treatment. You must also avoid makeup and facial creams for 24 hours post-treatment and avoid strenuous exercise and exposure to heat or sun for the first three days post-treatment.
If you plan on scheduling any anti-aging facial treatments such as radiofrequency, microneedling, ultrasound energy, or laser skin treatments, wait two weeks post-treatment to do so.
Who Are They Right For?
These dermal fillers are a good option for patients who want to enhance their cheeks, smooth lines and facial folds, or augment their lips.
