Why are dermal fillers so popular? Fillers replenish hyaluronic acid (HA), a water-retaining substance that diminishes in the skin with age. Hyaluronic acid’s moisture-attracting properties add volume and create plump, youthful skin.
When HA decreases, cheeks begin to sag, lips begin to thin, and wrinkles and lines become more pronounced. Dermal fillers bring back appropriate size and contour to cheeks, lips and other facial regions that have been reduced by tissue loss in the aging process. Facial creases and wrinkles become less visible, and the face has a more relaxed, youthful look.
Why choose Juvéderm?
There is a reason why Juvéderm is the world’s #1 selling dermal filler. Juvéderm gel sits very smoothly under the skin and doesn’t leave bumps that can cause an uneven skin surface. Furthermore, there are 5 completely unique Juvéderm fillers. Whether you want to plump your lips, soften the appearance of fine lines, or bring back the full size and contour of your cheeks, Juvéderm has you covered. By creating multiple fillers, each with its own unique properties, there is an appropriate filler specifically adapted for each treatment area. Furthermore, all Juvéderm products contain a pre-mixed anesthetic, to help provide a quick, easy, and virtually painless way to freshen your look.
At Advanced Vein Center, we don’t ascribe to a one-size fits all approach. For this reason, we offer the FULL collection of Juvéderm® dermal fillers. Our aesthetic professionals expertly utilize the various forms of Juvéderm to individualize treatments and achieve natural, long-lasting outcomes.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra, Ultra Plus and VOLLURE®
Juvéderm’s hyaluronic acid attracts nearby water molecules, increasing volume and resulting in a more supple, youthful appearance. The moisture-retaining properties of Juvéderm XC are perfect for filling fine lines on the face and reversing the early signs of aging. This formula can smooth parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth and add desired fullness to the lips. Results can last for up to a year.
A significantly thicker formulation, Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC is a revolutionary injectable that can fill in the deepest creases for up to 12 months. Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC contains the most concentrated hyaluronic acid available on the market and can produce exceptional results. This robust product can treat deep creases, such as nasolabial folds, also known as “parentheses lines”, deep corners of the mouth, and marionette lines. Due to its enhanced consistency, Juvéderm Ultra Plus has been used off-label to plump lips and sculpt cheeks.
One of the latest dermal fillers to be added to the Juvéderm collection is Vollure® XC. Created using Allergan's patented Vycross™ cross-linking technology, Vollure can provide longer-lasting correction, ranging from 12-18 months. Like Juvéderm Ultra, it can fill fine wrinkles, smooth parentheses lines, and add fullness to the lips, and it can provide an even softer result due to its very silky consistency.
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC
Juvéderm Voluma® is the first facial filler to be approved by the FDA for the treatment of the cheeks. Voluma replenishes lost skin volume to attain a youthful curve to the cheeks and can be used to enhance the overall shape of your face. It adds fullness to sunken or sagging cheeks that need a little more support or enhancement.
Voluma® is exceptionally well suited to refining and lifting the cheek region. It is thicker and stronger than the other Juvéderm products, is injected more deeply, and creates a subtle “lift” while filling in lost volume. Its smooth hyaluronic acid gel can be easily sculpted to create your desired look.
Interestingly, Voluma® recently became the first and only filler to be FDA approved for augmentation of the chin and improvement of jawline definition. It can plump, lift, and restore lost volume to the chin, as well as augment the chin for those desiring a more profound chin profile. Adding definition to the jawline can make a person's face look slimmer, sleeker, and stronger.
Voluma® is one of the longest-lasting dermal fillers in the entire Juvéderm collection, often showing visible results which can last up to two years after treatment. Voluma instantly adds volume and definition to aging cheeks, chin, and jawline creating contour and a subtle lift, and producing a natural, youthful appearance. Our technique keeps this procedure comfortable, and normal activities can be resumed right away.
JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC
Thinning lips aren’t simple to treat, especially if you are striving for luscious, natural-looking lips. As the years pass, the lips dehydrate, and lip lines develop. Volbella® is designed specifically to plump the lips and lessen “smoker’s lines”, the fine vertical lines around the lips. It hydrates thin, depleted lips that have lost their fullness.
The lip tissue is extremely delicate and requires a filler specifically designed to look natural beneath such thin skin. To surmount this challenge, Juvéderm developed the revolutionary Volbella® product. It utilizes a smaller hyaluronic acid particle size so it can be injected into the finest lines around the lips and give subtle enhancement to the lip volume without an overfilled or “puffy” look. Volbella has an especially creamy texture, beyond that of other fillers and due to this soft, fluid texture, Volbella fills more smoothly than other formulas, providing a particularly natural appearance. As a result, not only will your lips look plumper than ever, but they’ll look as if they’ve always been that way.
Women also choose Volbella for its ability to last. Volbella employs the Vycross™ cross-link system. Thanks to this breakthrough technology, the product does not break down as quickly and requires less frequent touch-ups to look its very best. This soft, velvety formula allows patients to experience lips that appear naturally plumped, and have a hint of shine, for as long as a year.
When will I see the results?
With dermal filler, results are immediate. However, since bruising and swelling can occur, it is common for products to take up to 14 days to settle. How long does filler last? In general, HA dermal filler products last anywhere from 6-24 months. Longevity will depend on the specific product that is used.
Do the injections hurt?
Discomfort is possible with injectable cosmetic treatment. To make your visit as comfortable as possible, our injectors will apply topical numbing cream prior to the treatment. Additionally, Juvéderm products contain lidocaine, which helps to minimize pain during treatment with each subsequent injection.
How much does filler cost?
The cost varies depending on product type and the number of syringes used. As prices can fluctuate, we will go over specific pricing during your consultation.
What is the recovery time?
As with any cosmetic injectable treatment, bruising and swelling are possible. We recommend avoiding dermal filler treatment within 2 weeks of any big event to allow the product to settle in and to allow for swelling/bruising to subside.
Are there any instructions before or after having filler treatment?
Prior to your treatment, we recommend avoiding blood thinning medications/supplements and alcohol. Vigorous exercise should be avoided for 24-48 hours following treatment. More detailed instructions will be discussed at your consultation.
