What is Juvederm?
Juvederm and Juvederm Ultra Plus are a family of highly effective injectables that help reduce the signs of aging using dermal fillers. These fillers are designed to restore a youthful appearance by smoothing out lines and wrinkles as well as addressing additional signs of facial aging such as hollowness and loss of volume.
Available in different formulas depending on the treatment areas, Juvederm can be used in a variety of locations on the face. These variations range from thin formulas to address fine lines to thicker formulas that are used to fill deeper wrinkles and hollow areas throughout the face. Juvederm lip filler is also an option for those who want to increase lip volume for an overall more full and youthful appearance.
The standard Juvederm injectable is used to treat minor to moderate lines, wrinkles, and creases on the face. This formula is thinner than its counterparts making it ideal for smaller sections that need to be smoothed and filled.
Juvederm Ultra Plus
Compared to the standard Juvederm injectables, the Juvederm Ultra Plus uses a thicker formula to address more serious lines, wrinkles, and creases on the face. Thanks to its thicker formula, this injectable can be used to fill imperfections beyond just lines and wrinkles. Juvederm Ultra Plus can be used for things such as hollowness in the cheeks, and to increase volume in the mid-face area.
Juvederm Ultra XC
Seeing all of the different Juvederm titles and options may seem confusing at first, but broken down it becomes simple. As described above, the difference between Juvederm and Juvederm Ultra Plus is the thickness of the formula used to treat different severity of filling needs. When you see the XC on any Juvederm title, it simply means that the Juvederm is mixed with small amounts of lidocaine which can help numb the area during treatment.
Juvederm injections are approved by the FDA and are regarded as safe and effective when combating the signs of facial aging. As a fast in and out and non-invasive procedure, Juvederm and Juvederm Ultra injections have become a popular choice for anyone looking into non-invasive filler injections.
The Juvederm Process
Since Juvederm is a non-invasive procedure, it’s easy to schedule your appointment and get in and out quickly. While it’s always recommended that you talk with your doctor before undergoing any procedure or modification such as fillers, Juvederm is regarded as one of the safest and most effective FDA-approved injections.
Before getting your injection, you’ll discuss your areas of concern, health issues, and other important medical information with your doctor. At AM Facial Plastics, our highly trained and knowledgeable team of Juvederm experts will assist you in selecting the injection that best addresses your areas of concern.
On the day of your scheduled injection, you’ll relax comfortably in your doctor’s office as they use the selected Juvederm that best suits your needs. The procedure can take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes depending on the area of treatment. Minor discomfort during your injection can be reduced with Juvederm XC, a mix of lidocaine with the filler that helps numb pain and discomfort at the site of injection.
When compared to other filler procedures and injections, Juvederm recovery times are a part of what makes it such a popular choice for fillers. With typical recovery times being less than two weeks, you’ll be back to enjoying your daily routine in no time.
While recovering from your injection you might notice minor swelling and bruises around the injection site. This should ease within the two weeks leaving you with a fuller and youthful appearance that you’ll be proud to show off.
During your recovery, it’s important to take proper care of your injection area by keeping it clean and following your doctor’s instructions. Some of the things to keep in mind while recovering include:
- Avoid topical products around the injection site
- Avoid unnecessary sun exposure
- Do not wax, tweeze, or use hair removal cream on the treatment area
- Avoid the use of anti-aging products
- Do not use products that contain alcohol
The Difference Between Juvederm and Botox
The main difference when it comes to fighting the signs of aging using Juvederm or Botox comes down to how they work and the ingredients used. While both can help reduce wrinkles and leave you with a smoother and younger appearance, there are some main differences between the two.
Juvederm is made from a hyaluronic acid that is designed to fill in wrinkles and lines as well as add volume. Available in different formulas to treat specific areas and wrinkles throughout the face in adults.
Containing botulinum toxin A, Botox reduces wrinkles by relaxing and stilling the muscles. Allowing for wrinkles and lines around the injection site to become less noticeable.
