Wrinkles are an unfortunate fact of life. Genetics, lifestyle choices, sun exposure, and more can contribute to their appearance. If you feel that wrinkles are making you look older than you feel, do not despair. JUVÉDERM® is a highly effective treatment in Miami for moderate to severe wrinkles. Procedures are quick and easy and there are several products in this line that are designed to address specific issues. This treatment is one of the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedures done today.
JUVÉDERM® is a collection of fillers that are hyaluronic acid-based. It is strategically injected into the target area to fill in fine lines and wrinkles. Each of the different fillers in the line has a different method of bonding and concentration of hyaluronic acid. The differences allow them to be as effective as possible in the area they are designed to treat.
The different fillers in the line are:
- Voluma: Used to increase the volume of the cheeks, reversing facial sagging.
- Vollure: Treats nasolabial folds while still allowing for a full range of facial movements.
- Volbella: This thin gel is great for the delicate areas around the lips and eyes. Can also be used to add more subtle volume to the lips.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in your body. When injected into the skin, it stimulates the production of collagen. As we age, collagen production slows down, resulting in wrinkles and facial sagging. JUVÉDERM® helps to rebuild the structure of your face.
Before beginning, the target areas are marked to ensure accuracy. After the injections are made, the area will be massaged to make sure it spreads evenly. You can expect your treatment to take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes.
There is very little downtime associated with this treatment. You will be advised to avoid certain activities for 24 hours, such as consuming alcohol or wearing makeup. Other than that, you can return to your normal daily activities.
Results develop immediately. Your improvements can last anywhere from several months up to one year, depending on which type of JUVÉDERM® was used. Follow-up treatments can be scheduled to maintain your results.
