At ElleHomme Holistic Med Spa in Chicago, we offer dermal fillers for our clients who want to add more volume and lift. One of our most commonly used dermal filler treatments is Juvederm, which is a brand that was introduced by Allergan, Inc. This brand is an expansive product that can be used to treat a variety of areas in the face. Because of it’s malleable gel, it is a more popular choice among doctors, since its easier to apply in certain areas.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a dermal filler that is made from a synthetic hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a compound which is already found in the body that acts as a ‘cushion’ in the hollow areas of the face. For example, under the eyes, hollow of the cheeks, smile lines, and even the lips are all filled with hyaluronic acid which keeps them plump.
The brand was introduced by the company Allergan, Inc and includes several different treatment options. There is Juvederm Ultra, Ultra XC, Ultra Pulse, and Ultra Plus XC which treat a variety of areas in the face.
How does it work?
Juvederm is administered by doctors into pre-determined areas of the face. Once injected into the body, the gel holds onto water at the injection site. It then provides a cushion of the water at the injection sites making the face look plumper. Juvederm also fills in the wrinkles, smoothing them out.*
To ease discomfort, the product contains lidocaine as a numbing agent. Because of this, pain is reduced during the injection. Patients who used this treatment report barely feeling any pain during the procedure.
Where are the specialty areas?
The Juvederm brand is very diverse with its treatment options. The Ultra and Ultra XC brand treats facial wrinkles, while Ultra Plus and Plus XC treat smile lines and lip plumping respectively. Depending on what area of your face you want treated, determines what product is used. Your doctor or licensed healthcare professional will be able to assess and treat the necessary areas.
What are the results?
The results from using Juvederm are dependent on areas being treated. When used to treat your face, you will appear plump and firmer. The once sagging areas of the face will be lifted and tightened. Another benefit is a dewy glow added to your face. This is because of the water being held at the injection site areas.
Patients who use this have a noticeably younger-looking appearance. There is a visible difference in the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face. And when used to treat the lips, patients notice that there is a fullness which wasn’t there before. It also improves the symmetry in the face that was lacking beforehand.
Juvederm is typically hailed in its results for giving a natural-looking appearance after being injected. Patients who are going for a realistic, natural look will be very pleased with this product.
