Now offering Juvederm Vollure XC, finally approved in USA after 5 years of great results in Europe!!
The JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers is made from hyaluronic acid (HA). What’s interesting about HA is that it’s a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers is made from a modified form of HA.
Why does volume loss matter?
Over time, your face changes in many ways. This is part of the normal aging process, but genetics and environmental factors can also play a role. You may notice a change in the appearance of your skin, typically in the form of deepening parentheses lines and wrinkles. But what may be less obvious is age-related mid-face volume loss.
What are the signs of volume loss?
Your cheeks may flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC adds volume to lift and contour the cheeks
What causes parentheses lines?
Parentheses lines are static lines that appear when your face is at rest. This happens overtime as your skin loses some of the building blocks (hyaluronic acid and collagen) that give the skin its structure. JUVÉDERM ULTRA® AND ULTRA PLUS® XC and JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC smooths parentheses lines.
Can the lips lose volume?
Yes, over time, your lips may lose volume and thin. However, many people seek out lip augmentation because they naturally have thin lips and simply desire more fullness. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC plumps lips and JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA XC enhances the lips.
How long does treatment usually take?
The injection process generally takes only about 30 minutes. You’ll also need to allow time to consult with your Dr. Manrique prior to treatment to set up your goals.
How painful is a JUVÉDERM®XC treatment?
The JUVÉDERM® XC procedure is usually not painful. Dr. Manrique uses topical numbing cream to make the injection as comfortable as possible.
When will I see results?
You can see the results immediately after the treatment.
How long do results last?
Results can last for up to a full year, although they will vary depending on each patient skin condition before the treatment.
What are the side effects and downtime?
Side effects are usually minimal following a JUVÉDERM® XC treatment. The most common side effects include redness, swelling, and bruising around the injection sites; however, these should be temporary effects that disappear within a few days. There is usually no downtime following a JUVÉDERM® XC treatment. The patient can immediately resume their everyday activities after leaving the office.
