Juvederm – Lip and Facial Filler
The desire of every woman these days is to have fuller, plumper lips. Juvederm has a plethora pf products to suit the needs of the modern looking lady.
We all want those kissable Christy Brinkly smackers to spark the desires of passers by. As you age it is inevitable that your lips will begin to sag, become slightly misshapen and will develop small unsightly wrinkles. Exposure to the elements, years of harsh Kentucky dry winter winds, UV from sunbathing and smoking can leave our lips looking like a deflated balloon.
But don’t despair because our Georgetown, Kentucky medspa has an answer for that problem and it is the lip filling gel called Juvederm. All of our products are administered by highly trained, certified and licensed medical professionals. Our expert staff are always happy to consult with you regarding any questions or concerns you may have about any of the derma filler products.
Our attention to detail is all part of the reason why we have become such a popular Central Kentucky medspa. Our goal is to make you feel comfortable from the time you walk in the door until the time you leave.
What is Juvederm?
We mentioned that Juvederm comes in gel form. It is actually a product that comes in a syringe and is injected just under your outer layer of skin directly into the facial tissue or lip area. Juvederm is most often used around the lip area but it also has other forms formulated for your cheeks, nose and in between your eyebrows.
The injection process you can feel but it’s not painful because it contains lidocaine . Juvederm is actually a form of a natural occurring skin enhancing chemical in your body called Hyaluronic Acid. It is the only FDA approved Hyaluronic Acid based filler that is in used in Medspas today. One of hyaluronic acid’s roles in your body is to provide moisture and volume to areas such as your lips and cheeks.
It is administered in our Georgetown, Kentucky medspa most often in a single 30 – 45 minute session. It is a very non-invasive process that usually shows minimal side-effects. Some mild side effects may include redness, tenderness or slight swelling. In most cases these will subside within 24 hours of being administered.
Treatments around the lips are known to last up to one year and treatments around the cheeks usually last even longer.
Juvederm comes in many different forms depending on the inteded purpose and area being treated. Some forms of Juvederm our clinic carries are:
Juvederm® Ultra XC: The XC version is mixed with a lidocaine to make the injection smoother and less painful. Juvederm® XC is an injectable dermal filler used to smooth wrinkles or as a filler for the lips. It is composed of a highly concentrated Hyaluronic Acid, which ensures optimal results. Hyaluronic Acid is non-allergenic, degradable, and found naturally in the body. Juvederm® is injected beneath the skin in the form of a clear gel. After numbing, Juvederm® XC can be injected beneath the skin during an office visit. Results can be seen in a matter of days, and will typically last up to one year.
Juvederm® Voluma: JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is another injectable filler from one of the world’s leading filler companies. This filler is the first and only injectable filler that is approved by the FDA to instantly add volume to the cheek area. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC adds volume to men’s and women’s faces that has been lost to aging. The injection results in natural-looking results that can last up to 2 years with optimal treatment. Wrinkles are only part of the aging equation. Volume loss in the cheeks is a major reason we lose our youthful profile and get sagging and jowls.
Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC: JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC injectable gel will help to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Most patients need 1 treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results last about 1 year. The Ultra Plus is a thicker formula and is used to fill more deeper lines and areas of greater volume loss.
