Are you experiencing the negative effects of aging skin? Are you noticing an increase in wrinkles, sagging cheeks, or deepening facial folds? These problems are extremely common, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with them! You can treat many of these concerns with the powerful hyaluronic acid filler known as Juvederm, available now at aNu Aesthetics™ & Optimal Wellness in Kansas City, MO.
What Is Juvederm?
This is a dermal filler used to treat the effects of aging skin, and particularly volume loss, wrinkles, and facial lines. It is manufactured by Allergan, the same company that makes Botox. However, it operates in a slightly different way. Botox works by relaxing muscles in the face. Juvederm, on the other hand, is a hyaluronic acid filler. It restores volume under the skin by increasing hyaluronic acid and improving the skin’s water and moisture retention.
How Long Does Juvederm Last?
One of the reasons this treatment is so popular is that it is an extremely long-lasting dermal filler. Many other brands of filler last only six months to a year, but this can deliver quality results for a year to two years after the injection. The difference in the length of treatment results will depend on what specific variety of filler you’re using.
Most Varieties: One Year
Most varieties will deliver quality results for one year, including Ultra XC, Ultra Plus XC, and Volbella XC. These types are usually used to treat nasolabial folds, marionette lines, or the lips and areas around the mouth.
Vollure: One Year and a Half (18 Months)
Vollure is a recently updated version of the filler, having been developed for increased longevity. It was approved in 2017 and can deliver quality results for up to 18 months. Vollure blends different types of hyaluronic acid in order to give the treatment a longer lifespan.
Voluma: Two Years
The longest-lasting variety is Voluma, which is used to treat age-related volume loss in the cheeks and the cheek area. Because of the thickness of the skin in the cheeks, Voluma can be injected deeper than other types of this filler. This deep injection allows for it to stick around longer: usually for two full years.
How Can You Get Started?
When you contact our office, we will discuss your aesthetic goals as well as your medical history and any potential challenges to treatment. Fortunately, most people can get this filler, as hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body, making it almost impossible to experience an allergic reaction. Our medical professionals will help you determine a treatment plan that will deliver quality results for years to come.
