What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is a non-surgical dermal filler used to correct the appearance of facial wrinkles and for lip augmentation. Juvederm® is a smooth hyaluronic acid gel that, when injected, temporarily adds volume to the face and smooths the appearance of the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the body, and since Juvederm® uses this biocompatible product, it is eventually absorbed into the body. While this means that the Juvederm® treatment is temporary, it also means that very few people experience allergic reactions or adverse side effects to the procedure.
How long does Juvederm® last?
Juvederm® is a temporary fix, but it can last anywhere from nine to twenty-four months after the first treatment, depending on the person. You will likely need retreatment at some point after the first treatment; however, if you choose not to, Juvederm® will be naturally absorbed into your body.
Is Juvederm® safe?
Juvederm® is considered a safe procedure for most patients. It was FDA approved in 2006 and millions of procedures are performed every year in the US. As with any procedure, there are some risks and side effects related to Juvederm®. The most common side effects are related to the injection sites and can include redness, swelling, tingling, pain, bruising, itching, numbness, bumps, or discoloration. These side effects may be immediate, or they may take a few days to appear, and they can last for up to a week. You may experience more swelling or bruising in the lips due to the unique composition of the area.
Although Juvederm® is a well-known and relatively quick treatment, always seek treatment from medically trained professionals. The medical team at Blue Spa is well-trained and experienced and works with each of their patients to provide exceptional customer service and obtain each patient’s aesthetic goals. If you are thinking of getting Juvederm® injections in the Orlando area, consider booking a consultation with our knowledgeable staff to see if it’s right for you.
What is the difference between Juvederm® and Botox®?
At first glance, Juvederm® and Botox® have many similarities. They are both injected, primarily into the face, and they both treat fine lines and wrinkles. However, they use different active ingredients and perform different duties.
Juvederm® is a dermal filler, a gel made from hyaluronic acid that fills lines in the face and smooths the appearance of wrinkles, while Botox® uses a purified form of the Botulism toxin to cut off nerve signals to the muscles, relaxing the contractions and making the wrinkles less apparent.
Each treatment is also used for different kinds of wrinkles. Juvederm® is best for wrinkles that are obvious when your face is at rest, while Botox® is best for active or dynamic wrinkles made when the muscle is used, such as when you smile or frown.
The results of Juvederm® can be seen right away and may last from nine months to two years for some people, while the results of Botox® may take a few days and begin to fade after five to nine months. Each procedure is temporary and will require multiple treatments.
What is involved in a Juvederm® procedure?
At Spa Blue, we care about your comfort during any procedure. There can be some discomfort from Juvederm® injections, and so a treatment provider will apply a numbing cream on the areas receiving injections. A thin needle is used for targeted injections. The procedure itself can take anywhere from fifteen to thirty minutes, depending on the number of injections you are receiving, but afterward, you will be able to return to your daily activities.
