Fine lines and wrinkles often creep up on us over time. As we get older and more experienced, these wrinkles can become more pronounced and can tell more than we want. Thanks to various dermatological advances, there are now many treatments to help make those lines disappear. One of those options is Juvederm. At The Dermatology, Laser & Vein Center in Cincinnati, OH, we can provide you with the treatments you need to fight those fine lines and wrinkles.
What Is Juvederm?
Before we dive into all the great things this product can do for the patient, it is important to know what this product is all about. This is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. There are several products in this line, giving the patient choices based on what skin conditions they would like to treat.
Each product features different concentrations of hyaluronic acid and different bonding. This helps the patient find the right solution that works for them to fight the signs of aging. The different products are tailored to target specific problems depending on the area and depth of injection.
We can discuss which treatment is the best for your dermatological needs. This treatment is simply a filler with a gel-like consistency, so it works for every patient, no matter what signs of aging they want to fight.
Where to Inject the Treatment
There are many ways that this treatment can be used. Not only does this work well for wrinkles, but we can work on many other skin conditions as well. Some of the areas to use Juvederm on include:
This treatment is popular for reducing any wrinkles of the face. This includes the parentheses lines that run from the nose down to the corners of our mouth. Vertical lines are treatable as well, including lip lines.
If you are dealing with Marionette lines, which are the ones that pull the mouth down a bit, then this treatment can help as well. Any wrinkles in the face can benefit from these injections.
For the Cheeks
This is a popular treatment to use for the area of the cheeks. Over time, our bodies naturally stop producing as much hyaluronic acid. When this happens, the cheeks start to lose their form and may look hollow.
Using this treatment can help bring back the youthful appearance of the whole face, including the cheeks. It is all-natural with no side effects.
For Smile Lines
This treatment can also help with smile lines that often form near the mouth. These smile lines can be caused for a variety of reasons, including weight fluctuations, genetics, bad choices for your lifestyle, and sun exposure.
This filler can be a good option because it helps to provide the proper support for these folds while decreasing lines all around the mouth. This treatment can be beneficial for all men and women, no matter their age, and provides immediate results after just one treatment.
This filler treatment can be useful for getting rid of scars. This includes scars from acne and dermal scar conditions. This works even with indented scars if those are found on the face. The patient will have to undergo several injections to smooth out the appearance of scars. But you can still see noticeable results after just one injection.
For patients who are dealing with unsightly scars, it is a good idea to consider this filler treatment. This treatment can naturally reduce the appearance of the scars, smooth out the face, and help you feel better about your skin.
This treatment is great for lips as well. Compared to other lip treatments that make the lips fuller and lusher, this filler is natural and has no side effects. With just one injection, you can get the lips you have always dreamed about. This filler lasts for three to six months after one injection, making it easy to maintain.
While this is a relatively new treatment for a lip treatment, these fillers are the best options to use. They work instantly, they don’t have the negative side effects that other fillers or treatments, and doesn’t require the same recovery period as other treatments
For the Forehead
This treatment is also useful for helping to clear the lines in the forehead. Life is tough sometimes, and keeping up with all of the different stressors and things that are thrown our way can create lines all over the place. This includes lines in the forehead.
This filler is a great option to make sure we can deal with those lines and wrinkles. When injected in the forehead, the lines can smooth out and start to disappear. Go back to your younger days with the help of this filler treatment and get that youthful appearance back in no time.

The Different Types
There are several types of treatment that you can choose. The type you choose depends on what you hope to get done and what area of the face you would like to treat. The forehead needs a different injection type than the lines around the mouth or in the cheeks, for example. Knowing the different types can make it easier to pick the right treatment.
The first type of treatment to choose is known as Voluma XC. This treatment adds volumes beneath the surface of the skin, helping to plump out the cheeks and increase their size. It is injected directly into the cheeks, giving them a younger appearance almost right away.
This treatment option helps address the loss of elasticity in the skin while filling out the lines and wrinkles found in the nose and the mouth. All those smile lines from laughing and having a good life can instantly disappear! Cut out the lines from around the mouth, the nose, the forehead, and more with one simple injection.
This is the perfect treatment for enhancing the lips, without all the surgery. It is quick and easy, and you can walk out with the full lips that you have always wanted. For any patient who wants to get full lips that make them look instantly younger, this is the right treatment for you.
How This Treatment Works
This treatment is effective because it adds volume to the tissues of the face. This is due to the active ingredient, known as hyaluronic acid. This ingredient is perfect to use because it is all-natural and found already in the human body.
This treatment doesn’t bring harmful chemicals into the body like other options. It relies on all-natural ingredients to help give your skin the appearance that you are looking for. With just a few injections, you will start to notice a big difference in the feel and look of your face.
When the hyaluronic acid is put to work, it stimulates the production of connective tissue that can plump the collagen found naturally in our skin. As we age, our production of collagen and hyaluronic acid decreases, and this is what brings on those fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment can help stimulate growth again and provides us with a younger-looking appearance.
How This Works in the Body
During the treatment, your medical professional will use a washable pen to mark up the areas that they plan to treat. They can then inject the gel into the target area. They may spend a few minutes lightly massaging the area to make sure the gel is distributed properly. This also helps lower the risk of swelling.
This treatment is quick and easy. It can take as little as 15 minutes, though some areas may take an hour to finish. Your medical professional will discuss how long your treatment will take.
Another benefit is these injections contain a very small amount of lidocaine to reduce the pain. This helps to minimize any discomfort the patient may have during the injections and makes this an even better treatment. You can get the fuller features and decreased wrinkles with no issues.
Preparing for Treatment
Before going through treatment, it is important to talk with a medical professional about your expectations and goals. The Juvederm treatment is minimally invasive, so often it can be done right after the consultation on the same day. The patient often doesn’t need much preparation, making this an easy treatment option.
For patients who need more time to think through the treatment, this is possible too. Whenever the patient is ready to take the treatment, it can be scheduled quickly and the patient can be in and out within a few hours. Unlike other similar treatments, this filler is safe and effective. Patients can be in and out with minimal recovery time.
Instructions to Follow
Your medical professional can discuss the different instructions you must follow. Some simple instructions include avoiding medication like ibuprofen, St. John’s wort, and aspirin. These can react negatively to the Juvederm injection and should be avoided. For a few weeks before the treatment, it is best to avoid smoking and alcohol. This helps prevent bruising.
It is also a good idea to talk to your doctor about any sensitivities or allergies you may have. Most patients are fine with these treatments and have no problem. But these are still important for your medical professional to know about before starting.
