At AOB, we have a lot of great options for patients who want to reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds (“smile lines”) or treat wrinkles around the mouth, lips or mid cheek areas. (Take a look at all of the options we have for fillers in Denver.) However, one of our favorite fillers for treating moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, particularly around the nose and mouth, is Juvéderm®.
Juvéderm® is actually a family of dermal fillers that are designed to provide nine months to one year of correction for wrinkles. The products include Juvéderm® Voluma ™ XC, Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC and Juvéderm® Ultra XC.
But why do we love the Juvéderm® products so much? Check out our list of five reasons you should consider Juvéderm®!
Hyaluronic acid, or HA, is a naturally occurring substance that’s found in the skin. However, as you age you start to lose HA, causing your skin to lose volume. Juvéderm® works by attracting water molecules to the area being treated while stimulating the production of collagen. It is designed to add immediate volume by holding in water at the injection site. Patients typically continue to see a continued reduction in wrinkles over the following days. (Click here to see the results other patients have experienced.)
Juvéderm® has a smooth gel consistency, compared to some other hyaluronic gel products that have a more granular consistency. It’s easy to mold and is designed to provide smooth, natural results that can last up to one year. However, on the off chance that you don’t like an area that’s been treated with Juvéderm®, it can be easily corrected to help you achieve the results you want.
While many fillers work well for mild OR severe wrinkles, Juvéderm® can smooth mild as well as severe facial wrinkles instantly. That combined with its smooth gen consistency and natural results makes it a great choice for most patients.
Some of the Juvéderm® XC products contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic that is designed to increase the patient’s comfort as the injections are administered. Juvéderm® Ultra XC and Juvéderm®Ultra Plus XC, for example, both contain lidocaine to numbs the treatment area within seconds.
Juvéderm® XC is the first injectable gel approved by the FDA to instantly add volume to the cheek area to correct moderate to severe folds and wrinkles. If you have facial creases like nasolabial folds (“smile lines”), Juvéderm® XC could be a great solution!
Of course, as much as we love Juvéderm®, it is only one of a number of products we offer at AOB.
