If your cheeks don’t look as high as they used to, or if smile lines have begun to define your appearance, you may be an ideal candidate for Juvederm. At the office of Launa Stone RN, in Calabasas, CA, we are proud to offer the most popular collection of dermal fillers in the world. These fillers can treat different aging concerns, enhance the features, and increase your confidence in just one treatment.
What Is Juvederm Best For?
Juvederm is a collection of cosmetic injectables that primarily treats the signs of aging on the lower half of the face, but it can also enhance facial features like the lips and the cheeks. Whether you want to erase the signs of aging that have appeared due to volume loss on your face or enhance your features to improve your appearance, there is a dermal filler in this collection that will help you achieve your desired look.
Addressing the Signs of Aging
Aging shows up in different ways on different faces, but dermal fillers are designed to treat the signs of aging that show up due to volume loss. When the skin loses hyaluronic acid content due to decreased HA production over time, the skin starts to sag and droop as a result of that volume loss.
Dermal fillers restore volume by injecting a synthetic version of hyaluronic acid directly below the skin’s surface to lift it and plump it. This hyaluronic acid closely resembles what the body produces naturally, so it delivers natural-looking results.
Smoothing Lines and Facial Folds
Smile lines and facial folds of all kinds and different degrees of severity form on the lower half of the face, usually below the cheeks and around the mouth due to the aging process. These lines result from volume loss within the skin, leading to sagging and drooping skin that isn’t as tight and firm as it used to be.
There are different fillers in this collection specifically designed to treat and smooth facial lines and folds. These two fillers treat parenthesis lines, smile lines, and nasolabial folds. Each has a similar composition but a different particle size, which is important in providing versatility when treating patients with different needs. Both deliver long-lasting results that last 12 to 18 months with optimal treatment.
Lifting and Plumping the Cheeks
Another area that suffers from volume loss in the facial structure is the cheeks. The cheeks don’t look as high or sculpted as they once did and can begin to be defined by hollowness instead of fullness.
Voluma is the filler in this collection that treats the cheeks by adding volume to help the area look smoother and firmer. It can also help smooth smile lines and facial folds, including the parenthesis lines that form around the nose. This dermal filler delivers results that last up to one year with optimal treatment, and it is the longest-lasting dermal filler available on the beauty market today.
Enhancing the Features
Another way that Juvederm fillers are used is to enhance the features. It’s no secret that many people are born with features that they are just not thrilled about. Thanks to dermal fillers, there is a way to enhance those features to achieve your desired look. One of the most popular uses of Juvederm filler is to enhance the lips.
The lips can thin from the aging process, or you can just have naturally thin lips, but thanks to these dermal fillers, you don’t have to live with them anymore. Whether you want to restore the volume to your lips that the aging process has taken, or you want to augment them to make them look fuller, there is a filler in this collection that can help you reach your lip goals. You’ll get long-lasting results that last anywhere from 12 to 18 months with optimal treatment.
Juvederm: Frequently Asked Questions
If you’ve mentally committed to taking that first step and adding dermal fillers to your anti-aging or beauty routine, you may have some questions about the process, your results, and how the injection process feels.
We are here to answer all of your questions, but we do encourage patients to ask any and every question they may have during an initial consultation. Knowing what to expect will help you walk into your appointment fully confident and prepared to begin the treatment process.
What Happens During Treatment?
Once you undergo an initial evaluation with our expert injector, we can confirm that you are a candidate for treatment and schedule your injectable appointment. If you cannot arrive with clean skin, we will clean the treatment sites to ensure they are sanitized and ready for your injections. Then we will administer the necessary injections into your treatment areas so that you can meet your aesthetic goals and live wrinkle-free.
We will apply a topical numbing cream for extra comfort if needed. However, one of the benefits of these fillers is that they contain lidocaine, a mild numbing agent that helps patients enjoy the injectable experience pain-free.
Is There Any Downtime?
While there isn’t any downtime associated with dermal fillers, there are some aftercare instructions that you must follow to get the best results. Depending on what area of your face you choose to treat, you will have some specific instructions to follow, but the aftercare instructions typically include the following directives:
- Avoid excess sun exposure and wear sun protection and sunscreen went outdoors or exposed to the sun
- Avoid facial massage as well as touching, rubbing, putting pressure on your face in any way following your treatment
- Refrain from the use of saunas, hot tubs, steam rooms, or any form of excessive heat post-treatment
When Will I See Results?
Once experience a dermal filler appointment to treat your problem areas or enhance your features, it’s normal to feel impatient and want to experience results right away. If that’s the case for you, you’re in luck because this collection of dermal fillers delivers immediate results.
You will see an instant improvement in your problem areas, and your lips will look fuller if you so choose to treat them. It’s important to note that your initial results will not be your final results. They will continue to improve as the filler blends with your skin structure in the week that follows your treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most patients only need one injectable appointment to achieve their desired results. However, sometimes patients choose to schedule additional appointments after their initial treatment to add filler to different areas or further plump their cheeks or lips. This is a personal preference and happens on rare occasions, but you can rest assured that our expert injector will help you create the best treatment plan to help you get the best results possible.
Will My Results Look Natural?
It is completely normal to be concerned about how you will look post-treatment, but you can rest assured that when you visit an experienced injector like ours who is skilled in the art of facial anatomy and has an artistic eye and who will view your face as an artistic canvas, you will get the most beautiful and natural-looking results.
One of the most important aspects of this treatment is choosing an injector who you can trust. Injections are only as good as the injector administering them, which is why it is more important to choose someone highly trained with skill and precision over the cheapest available option.
Can I Treat Multiple Areas at Once?
If you have multiple concerns or want to both enhance your features and treat the signs of aging, you can easily do so in the same appointment. During your initial consultation with our experienced injector, you can discuss all of your concerns. Once we confirm that Juvederm is right for you, we will create a treatment plan and treat all of your problem areas in one appointment.
Can I Still Get Botox?
Botox and dermal fillers can be combined. Because these two cosmetic injectables treat different aging concerns, we can combine them to create the most aesthetic-looking appearance. Botox treats dynamic wrinkles that form from repetitive expressive movements over time, typically on the upper half of the face.
Juvederm enhances the features and smoothes wrinkles and lines that have formed from volume loss, typically in the lower half of the face. When you combine these two treatments, you’ll get beautiful and natural-looking results.
