We’ve all heard about Juvéderm by now. You know, the revolutionary new dermal filler that instantly diminishes lines and wrinkles. But there’s probably a lot you don’t know about Juvéderm.
We’re here to fill you in—no pun intended!
1. Juvéderm is basically hyaluronic acid
Juvéderm is comprised of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance normally produced by the body. It’s what gives skin its volume and fullness. How? By binding and absorbing water. During the natural aging process, hyaluronic acid found in the body diminishes, which creates lines and folds. Juvéderm corrects this by restoring hyaluronic acid in the skin, helping to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and folds.
Juvéderm comes in two different formulas – Juvéderm XC and Juvéderm Voluma XC. Juvéderm XC is made from a modified form of hyaluronic acid, using Hylacross technology to provide a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid. It diminishes the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
Juvéderm Voluma XC temporarily restores volume lost, giving you an instant lift with natural looking results
Juvéderm Voluma XC is also made from hyaluronic acid, but it is a gel-based filler. Juvéderm Voluma XC is specifically designed for the cheek area. As you age, your cheeks flatten, and the skin may sag. When injected into the cheek area, Juvéderm Voluma XC temporarily restores volume lost, giving you an instant lift with natural-looking results that can last up to two years with optimal treatment.
Juvéderm XC and Juvéderm Voluma XC leave other dermal fillers in the dust. They’re far superior in both consistency and results. A dermal filler like Restylane typically lasts six to nine months. In comparison, Juvéderm often lasts up to 12 months! It looks more natural too because it’s a smoother compound than Restylane. Juvéderm also boasts a higher concentration of the active product hyaluronic acid, which produces smoother, more natural-looking results that last longer.
2. Juvéderm erases acne scars
Not only does Juvéderm eliminate lines and wrinkles, but it also erases acne scars, too! If you suffer from unsightly acne scars, then your doctor can perform a procedure called “revolumizing” using Juvéderm. “Revolumizing” is nothing more than injecting hyaluronic acid underneath the acne scars to fill in depressions and smooth out the pitted area of the skin. Atrophic, or pitted, acne scars respond best to Juvéderm. Keep in mind that Juvéderm can’t be used to treat changes in pigmentation or red marks that remain after acne clears. Juvéderm can only be used to treat acne scars that result in textural abnormalities of the skin. If you decide to use Juvéderm to treat acne scars, results last up to a year.
3. Juvéderm has many uses.
Juvéderm is safe and effective on pretty much all skin types and tones. It’s an especially good choice for people who have tried collagen injections in the past but didn’t get the results they wanted. Juvéderm has many uses. It’s great for facial contouring and can improve the appearance of scars. It can also enhance the size and shape of lips! Juvéderm is right for you if you have:
- Facial lines, wrinkles, creases and folds
- Acne, surgical scars or other skin depressions
- Sunken areas around the eyes or cheekbones
- Thin or aging lips
That being said, Juvéderm is not effective on severe scarring or excessively thin or loose skin.
Expect Results with Juvéderm
Count on getting immediate, long-lasting results with Juvéderm. Unlike other dermal fillers, Juvéderm results are customizable, depending on your specific needs. Juvéderm allows you to pick from two different formulations – Juvéderm Ultra XC and Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC. Juvéderm Ultra XC is primarily for contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds, while Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC is a more robust formulation designed for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and facial wrinkles. With Juvéderm, beauty is custom made!
Juvéderm produces immediate results, and these results continue to improve for one to two weeks as Juvéderm softens and draws moisture into the area. And you can expect these results to last up to 12 months. In fact, Juvéderm is proud to be the only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler to last up to one year with only one treatment.
