What Is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® is a non-surgical treatment that utilizes an injectable dermal filler solution to minimize common signs of aging and enhance facial volume. JUVÉDERM® is the only cosmetic dermal filler made from non-animal, stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA). Its unique composition combines the compatibility of hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the body, with the hypoallergenic benefits of containing no animal products. Unlike other dermal fillers that are derived from animal products, JUVÉDERM® will not cause allergic reactions related to animal sensitivity.
By discussing your desired results, Dr. Zollman will be able to help you decide if JUVÉDERM® is the right choice for your cosmetic needs.
The JUVÉDERM® product line includes a collection of advanced dermal filler solutions that can smooth away wrinkles and other signs of age, as well as enhance contour and volume to targeted facial features such as the lips, cheeks, and other areas. The standard JUVÉDERM® dermal filler is particularly adept at diminishing wrinkles and fine lines along the face and producing a firmer, smoother appearance. This option can also be useful for volumization of certain facial features. Results from JUVÉDERM® can last six months to a year.
Many JUVÉDERM® products are specially formulated to offer patients a way to effectively address very specific concerns and particular areas of the face. Below, you will find descriptions of several of the most popular and advanced products in the JUVÉDERM® line.
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ is often ideal for women or men who would like to enhance volume in the mid-facial area. This filler is typically good for cheek volumization and reduction of wrinkles in this prominent facial region. One of the major benefits of JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ is its ability to create extraordinarily long-lasting results—up to two years in some cases.
JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ may be recommended for lip augmentation and for filling in fine lines that have developed around the mouth. This treatment can enhance lip contours with subtle, yet noticeable results that look both natural and beautiful. The effects of JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ are known to last up to a year or even longer for some patients.
For individuals who are experiencing severe and deep facial wrinkles, JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ may be the treatment of choice. JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ can fill in these wrinkles and create a smoother, more youthful aesthetic. This option may be the best alternative for patients exhibiting signs of “parentheses lines” between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds). JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ outcomes can continue for up to 18 months in many cases, and occasional re-treatment can help patients maintain the effects for even longer periods of time.
What Does the JUVÉDERM® Procedure Involve?
The treatment process for all of our JUVÉDERM® products usually takes about 30 minutes to an hour to complete. These procedures can be performed right here at Zollman Plastic Surgery. Dr. Zollman will delicately inject the JUVÉDERM® solution into the area(s) targeted for treatment. The injections are delivered via an ultra-fine needle. A number of JUVÉDERM® products include lidocaine, which is an anesthetic that can create a more comfortable treatment experience.
Because of its unique composition, the hyaluronic acid in JUVÉDERM® will absorb some of the body’s natural water, causing the tissue to swell and smooth out wrinkles. Over time, the components of JUVÉDERM® will be naturally reabsorbed by the body, and its effects will begin to fade. Still, the results of JUVÉDERM® treatment at our office tend to last longer than other dermal fillers. For most individuals, the initial results of JUVÉDERM® can be maintained with occasional follow-up injections.
What Are the Side Effects of JUVÉDERM®?
While a recovery period is typically not necessary after JUVÉDERM® treatment, patients can expect some degree of temporary side effects, including swelling and bruising in the areas that were injected. These effects typically fade within a few days after the procedure, and over-the-counter pain medicine is often all that’s necessary to alleviate any mild discomfort before they dissipate.
How Much Does JUVÉDERM® Cost?
The cost of JUVÉDERM® treatment at Zollman Plastic Surgery typically starts at approximately $____ per syringe. This is an average estimate, and the total price is often different among patients since JUVÉDERM® procedures are customized for each individual based on the specific JUVÉDERM® product utilized, the number of syringes and the amount of solution necessary to achieve the established goals, and other components. Once you and Dr. Zollman have talked about your expectations and the JUVÉDERM® treatment plan is created during the initial consultation, we will calculate the cost estimate and present it to you. We will be happy to discuss the wide range of payment methods we accept at our practice, including financing plans available from reputable lending firms such as CareCredit® and Federal Credit Union. These agencies offer numerous monthly installment plan options for qualified applicants who choose to pay for their JUVÉDERM® treatment over time.
