Juvederm® and Juvederm Voluma® (often called Voluma) are the “next-generation,” smooth-consistency, gel dermal fillers that instantly restore your skin’s volume and helps to smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. For many patients at Plastic Surgery Specialists in Hollywood, Juvederm® and Voluma® are an ideal way to rejuvenate their skin without surgery.
Juvederm® – Is for injection into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur to temporarily add volume to the skin, especially around the nose and mouth.
Juvederm Voluma® XC – Is for deep injections in the cheek area and temples to correct age-related volume loss. Men and women in Florida are discovering the advantages of these injectable fillers, which are made from a substance that occurs naturally in your skin. With Juvederm® and Juvederm Voluma® XC, our doctor is able to offer his patients a safe and effective means to achieve a smoother and younger-looking appearance. We welcome both men and women from Hollywood and neighboring communities.
Is Juvederm® Right for Me?
If you are looking to add volume to moderate or severe facial wrinkles, then Juvederm® may be a good choice for you. Our Juvederm® patients in Hollywood typically consider this treatment for the following conditions:
- Lines between the eyebrows (glabellar furrows)
- Lines around the outer eye area (crow’s feet)
- Lines from the outer corners of the mouth to the cheeks (smile lines)
- Lines extending from the nose to the outer corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds)
- Lines extending downward from the corners of the mouth (marionette lines)
- Facial contouring
Voluma® is typically used to restore volume in the mid-face area that is lost due to our natural aging process. Voluma® works by gently lifting the skin, restoring cheek or mid face volume loss, and helping to restore a more youthful curve and position to the higher area of cheekbones.
One of the advantages to Juvederm and Juvederm Voluma® XC is that they both have been proven safe and effective for all skin colors and tones. Studies have shown no increased risk of hyperpigmentation or hypertrophic scarring.
How Does Juvederm® and Juvederm Voluma® XC Work?
Juvederm® and Juvederm Voluma® XC are made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps to hydrate and add volume to your skin. Both procedures involve a thin needle that precisely injects the gel into selected tissues in the mid to deep dermis. Juvederm® and Juvederm /Voluma® XC work as a filler by increasing the volume of tissue under the skin. Because the hyaluronic gel attracts water, the volume is maintained even as the gel is absorbed by the body.
A Juvederm® or Juvederm /Voluma® XC session generally takes about 30 minutes and is performed in our Hollywood office by our expert injectors. You may feel slight pain during and after the injection, but we will numb the treatment area to help minimize discomfort.
What is the Recovery Process for Juvederm®?
Because it is a smooth-consistency gel, Juvederm® flows easily into the skin to provide a sleek, natural look and feel. A single treatment presents immediate, optimal results on facial lines and wrinkles. In fact, most patients need only one session to achieve superior wrinkle smoothing.
Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is short, usually lasting seven days or less. It is common for our Juvederm treatments patients to experience temporary redness, tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching and discoloration at the injection site. As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
Your Juvederm treatments results can last up to one year. Correction is temporary, so touch-up injections, as well as repeat injections, are usually needed to maintain the desired effect.
What is the Recovery Process for Juvederm Voluma® XC?
Patients experience immediate results with full results in approximately 7-10 days. Juvederm Voluma® XC can last up to 2 years. There might be slight swelling, bruising or redness, but it subsides quickly leaving you with a more youthful appearance.
