Juvederm® Treatment Serving Rancho Mirage & Palm Springs, CA
The aging process reduces the amount of key proteins that your skin needs to stay flawless and young. By replenishing these natural substances, you can soften lines and wrinkles. The hyaluronic acid in Juvéderm® works with water to add volume to the skin and reduce signs of aging. Juvéderm® is one of the leading names in facial fillers, and the family of products helps with wrinkles and lines, as well as lip and cheek enhancement.
What is Juvéderm® XC?
Juvéderm® XC is an injectable gel that is recommended for moderate to severe wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Like other products in the Juvéderm® family, this injectable treatment restores the levels of hyaluronic acid in your skin. The results of Juvéderm® XC treatments last up to one year.
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the human body, such as the eyes, skin and joints. The substance binds with water to provide lubrication, shock absorption and, in the case of your skin, add volume and suppleness.
As we age, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid. The skin essentially becomes dehydrated and is more prone to collapsing inward and forming wrinkles.
How is Juvederm Different from Botox?
Juvéderm® and Botox® are injectable anti-aging treatments, but each product serves a unique role. Botox® works on dynamic wrinkles that develop due to the contractions of your facial muscles. These signs of aging most often develop on the forehead and around the eyes. Juvéderm® replenishes your hyaluronic acid to add volume to the skin, and it works around the nose and mouth.
Anti-aging benefits of Juvéderm® last up to one year, and the wrinkle-reducing benefits of Botox® injections last four to six months.
Types of Juvederm Offered by Lombardo Cosmetic Surgery:
Juvéderm® Volbella XC
Men and women who want to enhance their lips expect to have the most natural results. Juvéderm® Volbella XC is designed for patients who want subtle changes to their lips and a smooth, natural appearance. Enjoy your newly enhanced lips for up to 12 months.
Juvéderm® Voluma XC?
The only hyaluronic acid filler FDA-approved to add volume to the cheeks is Juvéderm® Voluma XC.
The main difference in Juvéderm® Voluma is that it is treating the structure of the face rather than treating the skin. It adds volume and has more of a lifting power than other fillers. For this reason, it is used in the mid-face area and cheekbones.
Who are the Ideal Candidates for Juvederm® Treatment?
Juvéderm® is an effective anti-aging treatment for men and women with more advanced wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds that begin at the outer edges of the nostrils and move downward to the corners of the mouth. We also recommend products in the Juvéderm® family for lip and cheek enhancement.
You may prefer Juvéderm® treatments if you want:
- Zero downtime
- Short treatments that take less than one hour
- Immediate benefits
- Long-lasting results
How Long Does Juvéderm® Treatment Usually Take?
Your initial treatment with Juvéderm® may take 30 to 60 minutes. Follow-up treatments take less time, generally between 15 to 30 minutes depending on when you had the last treatment.
