What is Juvederm?
Overview of Juvederm in Miami
Juvederm, Miami’s non-surgical smooth skin secret, can combat some signs of age or hereditary issues you struggle with. For men and women, no matter their genetics, complexions change beginning around age 30, and a few common issues may be noticed. First, skin thickness and firmness decrease as natural collagen and hyaluronic acid keeping it plump are diminished. Next, natural fat and muscle pads in the face can shrink. That means soft, full regions like the cheeks and temples may become flattened or hollowed. Many people notice their lips thin with age, and dark circles may also appear under the eyes. What do all these problems have in common? They’re linked to a loss of facial volume and moisture. The wonder of Juvederm dermal filler is that it can replace natural-looking volume to temporarily turn back the march of time on your face. It’s considered safe and is one of the fastest, easiest ways Dr. Kallman’s patients get the facial enhancements they want. If you’re considering Juvederm in Miami, read on to learn what this popular product can do, and consider whether it might help you reach your goals.
Miami Juvederm - What is it
Juvederm is a dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid (HA). This substance is naturally occurring in your body and plays a role in lubrication and hydration for your tissues. The slippery gel-like substance is hydrophilic, so it draws water into itself.
HA fillers provide mostly temporary results, though regular use can stimulate your body’s collagen production for lasting skin tone improvement. Juvederm is a brand name for HA which describes a family of filler products, all formulated a little differently to treat specific regions.
HA gel can be injected into cheeks, under scars, lips, lines, and wrinkles. Through building up soft volume underneath the skin, the product can smooth out surface texture and enlarge features such as the lips.
Miami Juvederm patients often choose neuromodulator injections along with facial fillers. An example is Botox. Fillers and Botox are not the same, but they often work in harmony because one relaxes muscle movement to soften wrinkles, while the other replaces youthful facial volume.
Juvederm is non-surgical, lasts between 6-12 months and is usually repeated once or twice per year to maintain results.
What is treatment with Juvederm like?
As a top Miami plastic surgeon, Dr. Kallman believes in customizing a cosmetic treatment plan unique to each person he sees. During your consultation at Face Miami, Dr. Kallman will listen to your concerns and examine the areas in question, then make recommendations to help you achieve the improvements you wish. Juvederm has various excellent product choices to target specific issues and deliver lasting results.
Juvederm is injected with fine needles, and the process is considered relatively quick and comfortable. Numbing agents can be applied to the skin, and the HA gel contains lidocaine, so after the first injection, patients don’t usually feel more than mild pressure. You’ll see instant changes in the treatment areas and will continue to see results as the gel integrates with your tissue over the following weeks. There’s minimal downtime associated with dermal filler treatments, and most people return to their daily activities or work. However, you may wish to schedule your appointment on a weekend or evening due to mild swelling in the area. Sensitive zones like the lips may swell for roughly 24 hours.
Who is a candidate for Juvederm in Miami?
Men and women between 21 and 65 can benefit from dermal filler treatments. While Juvederm restores softness and fullness to facial features, it cannot address severe wrinkles or facial sagging. During your consultation, other options such as laser skin tightening, or surgical solutions may be suggested if Dr. Kallman doesn’t feel you’ll be satisfied with this treatment.
Patients who choose Juvederm may have one or more of the following in common:
- Fine lines or wrinkles around the mouth and nose (nasolabial folds)
- Sunken/flattened cheeks
- Thin lips
- Acne scars or other indented scars
- Sunken temples
- Loss of jawline definition
- Hollows under the eyes (tear troughs)
- Loss of underlying fat on the back of the hands
Candidates must understand the limitations of the treatment and have realistic expectations. All considerations, pros and cons will be discussed with you.
Types of Juvederm to choose from
Juvederm XC is formulated for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and volumizing. It can be an excellent choice for the lips as well.
Juvederm Voluma Xc
Juvederm Voluma xc is designed to address sunken, hollow areas, and to build up the facial structure. It is formulated as a thick gel that holds shape and helps to lift deep regions such as the cheeks.
What areas are treated with Juvederm Facial Fillers?
Wrinkles affect everyone eventually, but you can help smooth them away using Juvederm wrinkle injections. Around the mouth, smile lines and marionette lines are common regions to treat.
Juvederm achieves incredible results in the cheek area to reform cheekbone structure and fill the “apples” of the cheek in the midface region. Many people appear older when gravity and fat loss flatten the midface, and deep filling with Juvederm makes a dramatic difference. For severe facial sagging, surgical options to remove excess skin may be advised.
Thin lips- whether male or female- can be treated with dermal filler. Lip asymmetry is quickly balanced through skillful injection and lasts 6 – 9 months on average.
Juvederm is believed to last longer than other lip fillers, but this is a high movement area, so you may need to repeat treatment 2 or 3 times per year to maintain results.
Acne scars such as pockmarks respond well to Juvederm injection. Sometimes releasing constricted scar tissue underneath and filling indented skin combines for a smoother complexion texture.
Do you need a Facelift or Juvederm filler?
Some people seeking help with facial aging will need more invasive solutions to achieve the desired results. A traditional Surgical Facelift can reposition underlying facial muscles and fat pads while excising stretched, loose skin. Incisions are generally blended with the hairline and behind the ears.
The cost of a facelift and recovery time are more significant than temporary facial fillers. However, the degree of correction and longevity of results are also more substantial.
Dr. Kallman will examine you, assess your skin and your desired result, then recommend the best options for you.
