How to Decide Which JUVÉDERM® Treatment is Best for Your Needs
When it comes to dermal filler injections, JUVÉDERM is undoubtedly one of the most popular choices. You may be surprised to learn, however, that there is more than one type of JUVÉDERM. At Concordia Star Medical Aesthetics in Puyallup, WA, board-certified physician and cosmetic injection expert Dr. Ladie Araña-Domondon offers multiple JUVÉDERM products and formulas to best meet the unique needs of each patient. In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at the different JUVÉDERM products available to help you understand which one may be the most appropriate option for you.
What is JUVÉDERM?
JUVÉDERM is a widely used injectable dermal filler designed to restore lost volume and/or enhance the size, shape, symmetry, or proportions of certain features. JUVÉDERM is primarily used in the face, though some JUVÉDERM products can be injected into the hands to combat signs of aging. Some JUVÉDERM products contain hyaluronic acid (HA), which is formulated to mimic the HA found naturally in the body, helping results to look and feel remarkably natural. Another benefit of HA-based fillers is that they can be dissolved using the injectable Hyaluronidase if desired.
Which type of JUVÉDERM do I need?
While JUVÉDERM XC, which is often considered the “original” JUVÉDERM, is highly versatile and can be used both for adding volume to features and smoothing out lines and wrinkles, the additional products included in the JUVÉDERM family of fillers have certain characteristics that often make them the ideal solution for specific applications. For example, JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC is a popular choice for creating exceptionally natural enhancements in the lips and areas around the mouth. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC, on the other hand, is particularly suitable for smoothing lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth areas.
During your initial consultation for cosmetic injections, Dr. Araña-Domondon will thoroughly evaluate your concerns, discuss your desired outcome, and recommend a customized injectable treatment plan that can best help you achieve your goals. In many cases, a combination of injectable dermal fillers, wrinkle relaxers, and other products offer the most compelling opportunity for beautiful, natural-looking, and long-lasting results. Some of the most commonly used injectables at Concordia Star Medical Aesthetics include:
- JUVÉDERM XC
- JUVÉDERM VOLUMA
- JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA
How long does JUVÉDERM last?
There are several factors that will impact how long your facial fillers may last, including which product is used, how quickly your body metabolizes or breaks down the filler, your lifestyle, and others. On average, patients can expect the results of JUVÉDERM injections to last for about 9 –12 months, though some patients enjoy up to 18 months of enhancements before repeat injections are needed. It is common for patients to schedule routine maintenance injections once per year to keep their JUVÉDERM results looking consistent and fresh.
