JUVÉDERM Dermal Fillers
From NJ Injection Experts at Windsor Dermatology
JUVÉDERM is a family of cosmetic fillers used to replace volume loss on the face. Volume loss occurs due to age-related atrophy in deep fat pads and within the dermis layer of the skin. Replacing age-related volume loss softens or erases wrinkles and restores a more youthful facial contour. The treatment effect usually lasts for 1-1.5 years.
The JUVÉDERM family consists of fillers including VOLUMA XC, VOLBELLA XC, VOLLURE XC, and ULTRA XC. All of them are based on hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the skin but is lost over time. Different JUVÉDERM products are used in different areas of the face to produce different effects.
JUVÉDERM may be placed in:
- The upper cheeks, which can provide a subtle lift and youthful contour
- “Tear trough” hollows under the eyes
- Vertical lip lines
- Smile lines (nasolabial folds)
- Lines extending from the mouth corners
- Lip body for fullness
What to Expect
Treatment consists of injections which may feel like a mild pinch, but the discomfort will go away momentarily as the products contain anesthesia. The results are immediate.
After treatment, some patients may experience bruising or swelling. These are usually mild and most patients can return to work the next day.
