Juvederm Fillers To Enhance Your Beauty
We offer Juvederm treatments in our Cincinnati practice. Juvederm is one of our favorite fillers. It is made of hyaluronic acid, which is essentially a sugar polymer and is naturally found in our skin. It attracts water to itself, hence giving a nice plumping effect that holds for about one year. We find that it tends to hold a bit longer when injected in the lips. It is a great choice for any area of the face, including lips and under the eyes. The under eye area is delicate and placement of the product becomes critical. Lips respond beautifully. An artistic sense and good placement gives us the best and most natural results.*
Juvederm comes in a four varieties: Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra XC, Juvederm Ultra Plus and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC. The XC formulations have added lidocaine anesthetic for greater comfort. The difference between Ultra and Ultra Plus is the consistency. Ultra Plus is more robust and longer lasting. In our practice, we almost exclusively prefer Ultra Plus XC. It gives excellent hold, comfort and results.
How is a Juvederm Treatment Performed?
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is injected using small needles into areas of wrinkles and depressions and to add volume to sagging facial features. Great care is taken to not create bumps and lumps in the skin by careful control of injection speed and depth of injection. It is beautiful for the lips where it adds definition and volume that can easily hold for one year or longer. Similarly, the under-eye area can also be treated to reduce the hollowing effects from aging. Juvederm is also easily correctable with hyaluronidase to break up any excess filler. After treatment, there is a small chance of a bruise from the needle. It is useful to apply mild pressure to treated areas for 5 minutes after injection. We also recommend oral Arnica Montana supplement around the procedure time to help minimize chances of bruising. There can be some mild swelling post treatment, which usually subsides within 1-3 days.*
Allergic reactions would be extremely rare and no allergy testing is required.
