Dermal fillers are an excellent option for those looking to make slight adjustments to their face to improve the signs of aging and to enhance facial harmony. The loss of volume from our cheeks and lips can make us look older than we are. Dermal fillers can bring back the face’s symmetry and make us look fresher and more youthful in just a single sitting.
Dermal and Lip Fillers
What Exactly is Juvederm?
Juvederm refers to a family of dermal fillers Destin Botox and other qualified specialists use to treat a variety of cosmetic issues. These injectable hyaluronic acid fillers can provide up to one year of correction to stubborn facial wrinkles and other signs of aging, such as nasolabial folds. Juvederm is also the most sought-after option for those looking to enhance their lips’ shape and fullness, using lip fillers.
Typically, a lot of hyaluronic gel products in the market have a granular consistency, which is not the best option for dermal fillers. On the other hand, Juvederm has a smoother texture, thanks to the Hylacross technology used to create a more flexible gel.
Hyaluronic acid is already present in the body in the form of naturally-occurring sugar. When used in dermal fillers, the hyaluronic acid works by retaining water at the injection site and transforming into a cushioning agent. The result is temporary volume to the facial features, as well as smoother and more evened-out skin. Dr. Amber Wiebe is highly specialized in using Juvederm to treat signs of aging, as well as for other cosmetic enhancements like cheek and lip fillers at Destin Botox.
What are the different types of fillers available in the Juvederm family?
It is our mission to deliver the best results with dermal fillers Destin and Santa Rosa Beach can provide. Depending on the area of the face that needs to be treated and the specific concerns that need to be addressed, these different types of Juvederm products can be used:
• Juvederm Volbella
The Volbella is the most gentle and thinnest filler in the Juvederm family of fillers. It is indeed the filler used by most specialists to treat minimal corrections like shallow fine lines. The thin consistency of the filler allows it to spread out evenly around the area where the injection was administered. The Volbella does not provide too much of a plumping effect due to its low water affinity, but the plus side to this is that you can expect zero swelling with Volbella fillers. Volbella fillers are most suitable for treating the wrinkled, thin skin under the eyes, as well as fine lines or small smoker’s lines around the lips.
• Juvederm Vollure
The Vollure filler from the Juvederm family goes a step above Volbella in terms of consistency. The Vollure filler strikes the perfect chord between being easy to spread and firmness, offering a filler that is soft, yet effective in small doses. This filler is often chosen for more subtle yet difficult regions around the face, such as deeper nasolabial folds. It works perfectly to define the features on the face, but also allows for more natural movements, giving an ideal balanced result. The Vollure filler is typically used to treat the deeper folds around the mouth, as well as to add slight plumpness to the lips.
• Juvederm Voluma
The Juvederm Voluma filler is the most intense filler from the Juvederm family. This filler has a thicker and stronger consistency and comes with a low water affinity. Voluma does not spread as easily, due to which it is used to lift and enhance certain regions of the face. This filler is the ideal choice for adding structure to the face. Voluma can be used to lift the cheeks and provide the illusion of higher cheekbones, define the chin, and straighten out any bumps or irregularities on the nose. The filler is ideal for those looking for a transformative effect, and the results from the Voluma filler can last for up to two years.
• Juvederm Ultra
If you’re looking for a more defined and plumper pout, the Juvederm Ultra fillers will work wonderfully to give you accurate results. The Ultra fillers have high water affinity, making them soft and supple, and easy to spread. For this reason, it is the perfect choice for lip enhancements, as it can easily retain moisture for long and give the lips a natural, plumped-up effect. The Ultra filler also works well in treating mild marionette lines.
• Juvederm Ultra Plus XC
The Ultra Plus XC is much thicker compared to the Ultra filler, making it an ideal choice for more structural changes. If you are looking for dramatic results to treat deeper lines and hollows on the face, the Ultra Plus XC can give you the desired effect. What makes Ultra Plus XC fillers stand out is the added lidocaine that comes with the filler. Lidocaine is a substance used to minimize pain, so with this filler, the entire procedure will be practically painless and free of any discomfort.
• Juvederm Volux
The Volux filler is specifically designed to contour and enhance the chin and jawline. This filler contains hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs in the body and adds moisture and volume. Used in targeted areas, Volux adds definition and structure to the lower face, creating a more sculpted and youthful appearance. The filler has become a popular choice for people looking to improve their facial profile due to its long-last results and minimal downtime.
Preparing for the treatment
Once you have an appointment with Dr. Amber Wiebe, our specialist at Destin Botox, you can share your concerns about facial enhancements. Once our doctor analyzes your facial features, she will be able to recommend the correct Juvederm filler that can be used to improve your skin and treat signs of aging.
You will also be required to provide a few details of your medical history. Be sure to inform your doctor regarding any prior filler experience, as well as any medications you are currently on. You will need to disclose if you are currently taking any allergy or sleep medication. If you are taking blood thinners, you will need to stop consuming them for about a week before the procedure to avoid risks like bruising and bleeding.
Dr. Amber Wiebe will guide you through the entire process and give you the right after-care tips following the treatment.
The Juvederm family of fillers is quite versatile and allows patients to either have a natural effect or more dramatic results. Patients can expect the results from Volbella fillers to last for about a year, and the effects of the Vollure fillers last for about 18 months. Our doctor will give you more information on the results you can expect based on the treatment you are opting for.
