MD Aesthetica in Houston was awarded Platinum status in the Allergan Partner Program, indicating that we are in the top injectors in Houston. Allergan is the maker of BOTOX Cosmetic and Juvederm as well as Voluma.
Juvederm® Injectable Gel was a revolutionary “next generation” of dermal fillers when it first came out and is now a staple in our portfolio. Created by Allergan – the manufacturer of Botox®, it provides a smooth, long-lasting correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds and is one of the best solutions. Dermal fillers are used to restore volume and fullness to the skin, giving a healthy, youthful appearance. As we age, our collagen breaks down and Juvederm helps restore this lost volume. The FDA has recently approved Juvederm Ultra XC for injection into the lips and perioral area for lip augmentation with results lasting up to one year. We have seen amazing results so far!
HOW DOES JUVEDERM WORK?
Juvederm contains the highest concentration of non-animal, cross-linked pharmaceutical grade hyaluronic acid of any dermal filler currently available on the market.
Juvederm was developed using proprietary Hylacross technology, a technologically advanced manufacturing process that results in a malleable, smooth gel that flows easily into the skin and creates a smooth, natural look and feel that move with facial expressions. Most other HA fillers us a gel particle suspension formulation. These gel particles can actually be seen under magnification as opposed to the smooth formulation used in Juvederm.
Juvederm best comes in two formulations in Houston which allow for a tailored treatment to your unique needs. Juvederm Ultra provides versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm Ultra Plus is a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF JUVEDERM
There are multiple products within the Juvederm family that are designed for different uses and applications:
- Juvederm Ultra: The original Juvederm formulation, Ultra is ideal for treating moderate lines and wrinkles, provides limited contouring and scar correction, and moderate lip enhancement. Results typically can last up to 9 months and it is one of our top requested fillers for voluptuous lips.
- Juvederm Voluma: The first and only hyaluronic acid (HA) based dermal filler approved by the FDA to instantly increase the volume of the cheeks. Results last up to 2 years with fill correction.
- Juvederm Volbella: A smooth hyaluronic acid gel-based filler that uses patented Vycross technology to smooth lip lines and other fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Results last up to 12 months after treatment and look very natural to the eye.
- Juvederm Vollure: Juvederm’s newest filler designed to correct the most severe deep folds and wrinkles, especially the nasolabial folds. Results of Vollure can last up to 18 months.
HOW IS A JUVEDERM TREATMENT PERFORMED?
Juvederm is administered in a smooth-flowing injection in the desired area, allowing your provider a high level of control for individualized, tailored facial contouring and for achieving a smooth, natural look. The procedure is very simple and quick, and the results are practically instantaneous. Numbing cream may be used optionally before the treatment to optimize your comfort during the short procedure. We also offer the option of Juvederm XC, which is formulated with Lidocaine for a more comfortable experience.
HOW LONG DOES JUVEDERM LAST?
Juvederm typically provides optimal results with a single treatment. Juvederm is the only hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA approved to last up to one year.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH JUVEDERM?
As you age, the lines that form around your nose and mouth become more noticeable and rponounced. Juvederm is most commonly used to correct these different types of facial lines, including “parentheses lines” (nasolabial folds), smile lines, vertical lip lines, and marionette lines (lines formed near the chin). It can also help to define the lip border and give the appearance of a fuller lip.
