Each Juvéderm product contains a unique formulation of hyaluronic acid that is designed to treat specific age-related concerns. In the hands of a skilled practitioner, Juvéderm Voluma®, Juvéderm Ultra Plus®, Juvéderm Ultra®, and Juvéderm Volbella® can be used to:
Minimize nasolabial folds
Smooth out marionettes lines
Erase fine lines around the lips
Correct lines on the forehead
Add volume to the lips
Lift and contour the cheeks
Add volume to hollowed temples
Correct undereye hollows
Replace lost volume in the hands
In addition to the problems listed above, Dr. Delgado and his nurse injector, Ariel Kirk, may suggest using Juvéderm in other ways to rejuvenate and refresh your appearance.
Age-related volume loss contributes to the formation of lines and wrinkles, deepening facial folds, and sagging across the midface. Part of the reason volume loss occurs is because the skin makes less hyaluronic acid as we grow older. Juvéderm contains a smooth gel of cross-linked hyaluronic acid particles. When Juvéderm is injected into your skin, it replenishes your supply of hyaluronic acid, which increases facial fullness and lift, and smooths out wrinkles.
Juvéderm treatments are very quick and require no downtime afterwards. In just 30 minutes, you can be back to your normal routine! Our nurse injector, Ariel Kirk or Dr. Delgado perform all Juvéderm treatments. After cleaning your face, a topical or local anesthetic maybe administered to ensure your comfort while Juvéderm is being injected. Once the face is properly prepared, Dr. Delgado or one of our nurse injectors will inject Juvéderm into your skin in the pre-determined areas using a very fine needle.
Side effects and recovery
Because the active ingredient in Juvéderm is identical to a substance found naturally in our bodies, there is no risk of allergic reaction. Most patients experience a small amount of swelling after the injection and some patients will experience bruising, itching, and tenderness. Side effects tend not to last longer than a few days. Most of our patients resume normal activities immediately after their treatment and makeup can be applied to the treated area as long as care is taken not to excessively rub the area. Juvéderm treatments are very quick and require no downtime afterwards.
The results of Juvéderm can be seen immediately and last between 6 – 12 months. Most of our patients are very satisfied with their results and return around 9 months for a touchup treatment.
