Over time our skin begins to sag and lose its elasticity, which is an unfortunate part of aging.  If you are starting to notice wrinkles and shadowing to the cheeks, around the mouth and nose, than maybe it’s time to call us at 207-363-2300 and set up a complimentary consult for Juvederm to help restore your skins natural beauty.

What is Juvederm dermal Filler?

Juvederm is an injectable hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that is used to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.  It was FDA-approved for cosmetic use in 2006 and many patients choose Juvederm over the other filler based competitors due to it being less painful and more effective. Juvederm comes in a few different formulations, which have been designed to treat specific areas of the face.  Formulations include: Ultra XC, Ultra Plus XC, Volbella XC, and Voluma XC.

What Is Juvederm XC and Ultra XC?

Juvederm XC and Ultra XC are both comprised of hyaluronic acid and are a smooth gel used to instantly smooth out fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose along with lip volume enhancement.  Results are seen immediately and can last up to 12 months.

So why the two formulations of Juvederm? Good question! Juvederm Ultra XC was designed for versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is a more robust formulation for volumizing and improves deeper folds and facial wrinkles. The two formulations allow for a more tailored treatment plan to meet your individualized needs.

How Does Juvederm Work?

Juvederm is comprised of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is naturally present in the human body, aiding in the process of absorbing and retaining water.  When injected into wrinkled or loose skin HA brings instant volume to the area and attracts water molecules slowly over time, which provides sustained lift and tone.

What Is Treatment Like?

Prior to injection your face will be cleansed and a topical numbing cream is applied to help alleviate discomfort. A small needle is used for injection and the number of injections will be based on the area being treated and the desired outcome.  At Coastal Aesthetics Medi-Spa, we inject with Juvederm for a number of reasons but one highly important reason is comfort. Juvederm is made with lidocaine, which is a mild anesthetic that drastically reduces the amount of pain experienced during each injection session.

What Are Results Like?

The results of Juvederm are seen immediately, however usually it takes 1-2 weeks to reach full potential, as there may be some swelling associated with certain injection sites.  You will come back for a 2-week follow-up appointment and at that time we can review your results together and discuss further treatments.

Treatment involves virtually no downtime so you can go on with your day without issue.  Most patients experience little discomfort following treatment, however some may experience redness, pain, firmness, swelling, lumps, bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration at the site of injection. Fortunately, these symptoms are usually mild and should subside in a few days.
