What Are the Different Types of Juvederm?

Your skin changes as you age. As a child, it didn’t look or feel the same as it does now. Many of these changes, like wrinkles, sagging, and fine lines, can undermine your self-confidence. In Frisco, TX, Novo Med Spa offers Juvederm injections that could boost your appearance and make you feel better.

What Are the Different Types of Juvederm?

Have wrinkles, folds, and fine lines become a source of self-consciousness for you? If so, a dermal filler might be the answer. With Juvederm, you can effectively treat these common signs of aging and achieve a more youthful appearance.

This filler comes in a variety of forms. It doesn’t matter which kind you get: you’ll always get a safe, fast-acting, and natural-looking wrinkle treatment.

XC and Vollure XC

In areas where when we move a lot, wrinkles appear earlier and deeper. Throughout the day, you move your mouth by speaking, smiling, frowning, and eating. As a result, wrinkles tend to appear more frequently here.

If you are suffering from wrinkles around the mouth, Vollure XC or XC could be the solution. Both of these fillers aim to smooth out wrinkles around the mouth and nose area.

Voluma XC

Your face has a lot of volume when you’re young. This contributes to how healthy you look. As you age, you’ll notice that you lose volume in your face, giving you an older appearance.

You can restore volume to your face with Voluma XC. The cheeks are often the first to lose volume, so this treatment targets them. You will have more defined cheeks, and the sagging skin will be pulled back up for a more youthful appearance.

Ultra XC and Volbella XC

It is natural for some people to have thin lips. Some individuals, however, lose volume in the lip area as they lose volume throughout the face. Thin lips are generally considered undesirable, unfortunately. They make you appear older and serious, and this can make you feel self-conscious.

Volbella XC and Ultra XC both effectively treat thin lips. With these injections, you’ll get plumper, fuller lips that look more youthful.

About Wrinkles and Their Treatment

You probably have many questions about this treatment and how it works if you’re interested in getting it. The following information provides a brief overview of this safe and effective filler.

The Source of Wrinkles

In order to understand how fillers work, we need to understand why wrinkles and sagging occur in the first place. Collagen and elastin proteins are among the chemicals that make up your skin. Your skin depends on these proteins for a number of reasons. In the first place, they provide structure for your skin. They also facilitate the smoothing of your skin when the muscles beneath you are relaxed.

Additionally, your skin contains a substance called hyaluronic acid. The body uses this sugar to hydrate, volumize, and lubricate the skin. With age, the amount of all these chemicals in your skin decreases. As a result, your skin becomes weaker, less able to maintain its shape, and becomes less voluminous.

Juvederm Basics

An extremely fine and precise needle is used to apply this collection of dermal fillers. These injections are strategically applied to the desired parts of your face by the technician.

Hyaluronic acid is used in these fillers. It can be used to smooth out wrinkles on your face and create more volume on your face overall in a very safe and effective manner.

How Does It All Work?

When Juvederm is injected into the skin, the hyaluronic acid in these fillers performs several different functions. For one thing, it gives the skin volume. As a result, your skin will appear fuller and more youthful, smoothing out wrinkles and lifting sagging skin. Additionally, hyaluronic acid retains and draws in moisture. As we age, it becomes increasingly difficult to keep our skin hydrated, and this injectable can be a great help.

Furthermore, it will allow you to sustain the volume you’ve added for as long as possible. Hyaluronic acid is also important for stimulating collagen production in your skin. This keeps your skin supple and firm over time.

The Process

Finding the right clinic is the most important thing when receiving this treatment. The product should only be applied by licensed practitioners. We provide a welcoming environment where you’ll feel comfortable receiving your treatment.

Preparation

Prior to your appointment, there are a few things you need to check. No worries, there won’t be a lengthy to-do list for you to follow! Instead, you just need to avoid a few things in the week leading up to your appointment. By doing so, you can ensure the treatment will be as effective as possible.

Don’t take any medications or supplements that could thin your blood. For example, aspirin, ibuprofen, and supplements such as fish oil and St. John’s wort are all blood thinners and should be avoided. Prior to your appointment, you should also abstain from drinking alcohol and stop smoking.

Your Appointment

The first step to getting the injections is to schedule a consultation. There are a couple of reasons why this is a really important step in the treatment process. It gives us an opportunity to find out what areas you would like treated as well as to address any questions or concerns you might have about the process.

Following your consultation, we will schedule your appointment. The whole experience will be comfortable and relaxing. The first step is to thoroughly clean the area where the injections will be administered. To make the treatment even more comfortable, we may apply a small amount of numbing cream once the skin is clean. A very fine needle will then be used by our technicians to inject the fluids. There are likely to be multiple injections required, with a small amount injected at a time. It is a simple process that should take between 15 minutes and an hour.

After Care

A non-invasive treatment like this one has the advantage of being minimally invasive in terms of recovery time. In contrast to painful and uncomfortable recovery periods after surgical procedures, you’ll be able to go right back to work after your Juvederm appointment.

You’ll need to avoid a few things in order to get the most out of your treatment and to get the product to settle appropriately into your skin. As much as possible, stay out of direct sunlight in the first few days. It’s also a good idea to avoid excessive sweating and strenuous activities. However, for most things, as soon as you leave the clinic you can get back to your normal daily routine.

FAQs

Am I a Good Candidate?

Almost anyone can receive this treatment since this filler is made from natural ingredients and is a safe and effective method of reducing the appearance of wrinkles. You could be a good candidate if you are self-conscious about the wrinkles and fine lines that have appeared on various parts of your face.

In addition, it is an excellent option for restoring volume to your face after you have lost it due to aging.

Is This a Safe Treatment?

This dermal filler is the ideal anti-wrinkle treatment for those who want a risk-free treatment. A lot of different treatment options are available, but some involve quite a bit of risk, such as surgery. Other injectables may contain ingredients you are uncomfortable injecting into your skin.

Hyaluronic acid, however, is the main ingredient of this collection of fillers. This natural sugar is found in several parts of the body, such as the skin, eyes, and connective tissues. Moreover, it stimulates collagen production: something your body does naturally. The filler only enhances the process.

When Will I See Results?

Immediately after leaving the clinic, you’ll notice a difference in your appearance. As soon as it’s applied, hyaluronic acid puts more volume into the desired areas.

You’ll see even more results after a few weeks. This is a great option for you if you’re looking for something that works quickly.

How Long Do Results Last?

Regardless of what kind of treatment you choose, you want your results to last. The results of any filler will need to be maintained through follow-up injections. However, this treatment has the advantage of lasting a long time.

Several factors determine how long your results will last. Your Juvederm type, as well as how well you take care of your skin afterward, come into play here. Results generally last six months to two years.
