In the world of social media where every photo is doctored with a filter, it can get hard to look in the mirror and see the true version of yourself, especially if that version is the aging you, complete with lines and wrinkles. You’ve tried all the creams, serums, and lotions, but still, the aging process is getting the best of you. At Knox Wellness Experience, in Knoxville, TN, we offer Juvederm, the injectable that can make your real self look more like your photo-filtered self.
What Conditions Does Juvederm Treat?
Juvederm treats and corrects the problems that come with aging skin. Specifically, it treats aging that shows up in the cheeks, like sagging skin, lines that form on the face, and the lines that form around the mouth. It can also treat thin lips, whether due to genetics or the natural aging process. The goal of dermal fillers is to fill the area between the dermis and epidermis to add volume, erase lines, and contour the face to the ultimate picture of youth.
Sagging. Drooping. Jowls. These are all unattractive words that represent just what the aging process is capable of. However, there is a solution and you can fight back. Juvederm can temporarily improve the signs of aging that show up in the cheeks and add volume where volume has been lost. This dermal filler can plump, fill, and restore volume so that your face is the picture of youth, no matter how old you may be.
Facial Lines, Folds, and Wrinkles
If you’re a perfectionist, you notice those lines that show up in your magnifying mirror long before they’re ever visible to anyone else. For everyone else, the lines that you see in the mirror begin to bother you and become so noticeable that you need to do something to treat them, but you’re not sure what. If this describes you, Juvederm is your solution. It will fill the area beneath those lines, plump the skin, and make them disappear entirely.
Full lips are all the rage. They are the picture of youth and beauty and they have become more than just a trend, they are now an ideal. If your lips are naturally thin, or they have thinned due to the aging process, there is a formulation within this family of dermal fillers that can treat your thin lips, amp up the volume, and make you feel beautiful.
Sometimes you can be frustrated with aspects of your appearance that have nothing to do with the aging process, and for those times you need a solution. This collection of fillers allows those who want to change certain aspects of their appearance to do just that. One of the most recent advances this collection has made is the development of a filler that is FDA-approved to contour and define the chin, creating a more aesthetically pleasing profile.
What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a collection of dermal fillers that can temporarily restore volume to aging skin. This collection of fillers includes different formulations that specifically treat and correct problematic skin conditions resulting from the aging process. These show up in the cheeks in the form of lines and wrinkles, and in the lips. It is a dermal filler in injectable form composed of hyaluronic acid in a crystal clear gel that is injected beneath the skin to plump, fill, and add volume.
The Benefit of Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance within the body that is responsible for keeping the skin supple, hydrated, and firm. Over time, as the aging process occurs, the natural production of hyaluronic acid within the body decreases, and as a result, the signs of aging increase. Lines and sagging become prevalent and start to define the face.
This dermal filler is composed of a crystal clear gel made primarily of a synthetic version of hyaluronic acid. Because this substance so closely matches that which the body produces, it takes the body a long time to metabolize it, which makes it a temporary yet long-lasting solution for aging skin. The hyaluronic acid particles within these dermal filler formulations vary in size, which makes it a solution that can target many different areas of the face.
How Soon Will I See Results?
The benefit of dermal fillers is that the results are immediate. Once administered, you will see immediate results from your filler injections and the results will continue to improve during the week following treatment.
Is the Treatment Painful?
One benefit of this particular collection of dermal fillers, when compared to similar injectables of its kind, is that it is formulated with lidocaine, a mild anesthetic that works to relieve pain. The inclusion of lidocaine as an ingredient in these formulations helps maintain optimal comfort both during and after the injection process. You can rest assured that our skilled injectors possess the expertise to make your experience as comfortable and painless as possible.
What Are the Different Formulations?
A Formulation for the Cheeks
The aging process takes a toll on the face, especially the cheeks. It causes them to flatten, which results in sagging and drooping, a condition called age-related mid-face volume loss. This drooping can also lead to nasolabial folds. The Juvederm formulation specifically designed to treat and correct the signs of aging in the cheeks is the Voluma XC formulation. When injected into the cheeks, it can add volume and lift and contour the cheeks and restore youth.
How Long Do Results Last?
Once injected with the Voluma XC formulation, you can enjoy your results for up to two years with optimal treatment. This long-lasting formulation will help you obtain your desired aesthetic and maintain it without having to schedule touch-up treatments every month. Once you notice that your results are beginning to fade, you can return for a follow-up appointment to maintain your results.
Formulations for Lines
Whether your lines have shown up in the form of smile lines, or have developed into nasolabial folds, these two formulations will help resolve lines, wrinkles, and facial folds.
The Vollure XC Formulation
Two different formulations can treat and correct lines that form on the face due to aging. The Vollure XC formulation can help treat facial wrinkles and folds, as well as the lines that form around the nose and mouth called parenthesis lines. This formulation will create a smooth facial texture and with optimal treatment, results will last up to 18 months.
The XC Formulation
This formulation helps treat and correct the moderate and severe lines, folds, and wrinkles on the face that make you feel older. It will even treat and correct smile lines and parenthesis lines that show up as a result of the aging process. This formulation resolves lines and wrinkles by adding volume beneath the skin. With optimal treatment, results last up to one year.
Formulations for the Lips
Two different formulations treat the lips: the Volbella XC formulation and the Ultra XC formulation. These dermal fillers are good options for those who want to treat and improve the appearance of their thin lips that have thinned due to the aging process, or if they just want fuller lips. Since the lips are a sensitive area, the lidocaine that is included within each of these formulations helps reduce sensitivity during the injection process.
The Volbella XC Formulation
Volbella is used to augment the lips and add subtle, natural fullness. It can also address problems with the shape and symmetry of the lips, as well as smooth out the perioral lines, also known as lipstick lines, that form around the mouth. With optimal treatment, results will last for one year. That’s one year that you won’t have to use temporary solutions to make your lips bigger, such as lip-plumping glosses, or lip liners to over-line your lips to make them bigger.
The Ultra XC Formulation
The Ultra XC formulation adds fullness to the lips. It can be used on those who want fuller lips to reverse the effect of the aging process, or to plump their naturally thin lips. Additionally, it can be used to treat the face and correct deep parenthesis lines like nasolabial folds by adding volume to the facial tissue. With optimal treatment, results will last up to one year.
A Formulation for the Chin
The same formulation that helps address the signs of aging in the cheeks is now approved for use in the chin. When injected deep into the chin, the Voluma XC formulation can augment the chin by changing its profile to create a more aesthetic appearance. This injection will temporarily add volume to the chin area and improve the shape by adding subtle definition.
How Long Do Results Last?
When the Voluma XC formulation is injected into the chin, the effects will last up to one year with optimal treatment. Follow-up appointments after your results begin to fade are the best way to maintain your results.
Am I a Candidate?
If you are an adult over the age of 21 who is in good health and wants to address the signs of aging on the face, you are most likely a candidate that will benefit from using this collection of dermal fillers. Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid dermal fillers until they are cleared by their health professional to undergo treatment.
The Consultation Process
Your initial consultation is an important step in developing the treatment plan that’s right for you. During this process, an injector skilled in the art of cosmetic injectables will review your health history, examine your face, analyze your problem areas, and listen as you discuss your concerns.
