JUVÉDERM®: Turn up
the volume for
Feeling a little deflated? As we age, we not only lose elasticity in our skin; we also lose the volume underneath. As the tissues beneath the skin shrink, the skin sags and wrinkles.
Replacing that tissue in the cheeks, lips or folds of the face can turn up the volume on younger-looking skin.
Blush Aesthetics offers JUVÉDERM® dermal fillers to restore your natural and youthful appearance.
What is JUVÉDERM®?
Each JUVÉDERM® product is designed specifically to enhance the shape of your lips, cheeks or other areas of the face that have lost volume over time.
JUVÉDERM® is a great option for those with these aesthetic issues who are not ready for a facelift. Next to botulinum toxin injections, dermal fillers are the second most frequent minimally invasive procedure performed in the United States.
- Restore youthful shape
- Smooth and lift the appearance of sagging skin
- Create fuller, more defined lips
- Fill deep folds, lines and wrinkles
Fine Line Improvement With Hyaluronic Acid
The most popular type of wrinkle fillers is hyaluronic acid or HA. HA is a natural substance in the body that delivers volume to the skin.
Modified HA is the main ingredient behind JUVÉDERM®. Treatment with JUVÉDERM® helps temporarily add volume to different areas of the face without surgery.
Approximately 50% of the total HA concentration in the body is in our skin. It is an extremely hygroscopic molecule, binding up to 1,000 times its weight in water. This property allows it to contribute to the hydration and volume of tissues, as well as providing structural support.
What can JUVÉDERM® do for You?
JUVÉDERM® is a collection of FDA-approved, injectable dermal fillers that can give skin a fuller, smoother appearance. The hyaluronic acid in JUVÉDERM® works with your body by holding in water at the injection site, giving skin a more plump and full appearance.
The JUVÉDERM® family of dermal fillers can be used to treat:
- Loss of volume in cheeks
- Loss of lip volume and definition
- Deep smile lines (also known as nasolabial furrows)
- Smoker's lines; vertical lines on the mouth
- Some facial scars
Some research shows that repeated injections with dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM® may help stimulate the body's natural production of collagen. Increased collagen production reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. There is also some evidence that less dermal filler is needed with repeated treatments to achieve the same look.
JUVÉDERM® Treatments for Every Goal
- JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is used for lip augmentation and to soften the appearance of vertical lip lines
- JUVÉDERM ULTRA PLUS effectively improves the appearance of nasolabial folds.
Restore Your Natural and Youthful Appearance
How Long Does JUVÉDERM® Treatment Take?
JUVÉDERM® injections generally take less than 30 minutes with minimal downtime.
Is JUVÉDERM® Treatment Painful?
We use an ultrafine needle to inject JUVÉDERM®. Treatment is painless for most patients, but a local anesthetic is available for your comfort if needed.
How Soon Will I see Results?
Juvederm treatments provide immediate results with little downtime. It can take a few days for the injectable gel to settle. For this reason, optimal results and the final look may take up to two weeks.
How Long do JUVÉDERM® Results Last?
With most treatments, the results are immediate; however, how long it lasts depends on the type of filler used. Treatment with our selection of dermal fillers lasts six to nine months for most patients. Touch-ups may be necessary.
What are the Side Effects of Dermal Fillers?
Side effects are rare but can include swelling, redness and bruising at the injection site. After treatment, patients can use an ice pack to reduce any swelling that may occur.
The filler may also show up as tiny bumps under the skin, an issue that improves over time.
