When lines and wrinkles begin to form, office-based procedures can stop these signs of aging in their tracks. Juvederm, Juvederm Voluma, and Boletero are related dermal fillers that can add volume to the face without surgery.
Radiesse is another volumizing filler to add volume to deeper folds of the face. Dr. Small will discuss your unique treatment options at your consultation.
These smooth gels made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance already present in your body, are injected into the skin to fill wrinkles and folds and to actually lift skin that has begun to sag. Juvederm is especially effective on the nasolabial folds – the lines from the nose to the corner of the mouth – and wrinkles in the cheek area. Voluma adds fullness to the cheeks and improves the hollow look that can form in these areas.
Juvederm is also a great filler for lip enhancement, giving your lips a naturally fuller and poutier look.
Dr. Small is an expert injector of these fillers, placing them properly and with the right dosage for a natural-looking result. Juvederm lasts for 6 months up to a year, while Voluma can last as long as two years.
The Juvederm Procedure
Both Juvederm and Juvederm Voluma have Lidocaine in the formula which keeps discomfort minimal. The injections will only take 15-30 minutes, and you will be on your way!
Recovering from Juvederm Injections
You can continue with your everyday life right after Juvederm or Voluma injections, but please avoid exercise for a couple of days. Any slight bruising or swelling can usually be hidden with makeup.
Dr. Small will give you complete instructions to ease and speed your healing process.
Complementary Procedures with Juvederm
Juvederm or Voluma can be part of a liquid facelift, which is a non-surgical anti-aging treatment using injectables like Botox and dermal fillers. Of course, a liquid facelift is temporary and must be repeated, while a surgical facelift can last as long as a decade. Dr. Small will discuss these options with you during your consultation so that you can make the right decision for you.
