What is Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® is a collection of dermal fillers developed to treat areas of the face where the signs of aging tend to appear. The fillers contain hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps transport nutrients to the skin cells. Depending on the area of the face, there is a specific Juvéderm® filler to treat the skin imperfection by adding volume and restoring a more youthful appearance.
What Juvéderm® Fillers are Offered?
Dr. Yegiyants offers the following Juvéderm® fillers:
About Juvéderm® Voluma®
As we age, the midface area often begins to lose its volume and look hollow or sunken. Voluma® is FDA approved to add volume to the cheeks and midface creating a smoother complexion and fuller, more youthful appearance. The results from Juvéderm® Voluma® may last up to two years.
About Juvéderm® Volbella®
Volbella®, the most recent addition to Juvéderm®, is FDA approved for lip augmentation. Used as an alternative to more invasive procedures, Volbella® increases the volume of the lips naturally without looking too full. Additionally, Volbella® smooths the fine lines and wrinkles that develop around the lips. The results may last up to a year.
About Juvéderm® Vollure™
For more severe lines and folds, especially those around the mouth and nose, Juvéderm® Vollure™ adds volume to smooth deeper lines and wrinkles to create a rejuvenated appearance. Treatments using Vollure™ may last up to 18 months.
Why Choose Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® fillers use hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance produced by the body, to add moisture to the skin. Because Juvéderm® uses HA, there is little to no risk of an adverse reaction from using the filler making it safe for all skin types. Additionally, the treatments are long lasting.
Who is a Good Candidate for Juvéderm®?
When fine lines and wrinkles become more prominent, people may want to consider one of the Juvéderm® fillers to add volume and smooth wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid helps the skin cells attract nutrients and moisture to give the skin a youthful glow.
How is Juvéderm® Administered?
The process of administering Juvéderm® is easy and quick, taking no more than 30 minutes. The filler is injected into the targeted area and gently massaged to ensure it is evenly spread around the skin imperfection. The treatments are virtually painless as the fillers contain lidocaine to diminish discomfort or pain. Once the treatment is complete, patients return to their normal activities with no downtime or recovery. The area may be slightly red or tender but that resolves itself quickly.
When Will I See the Results from Juvéderm®?
The results from any of the Juvéderm® treatments are somewhat visible immediately following the injections; however, it takes a few weeks for the full results to appear as the moisture comes to the surface layers of the skin. Juvéderm® fillers last from one to two years. It is recommended that maintenance treatments be continued to keep the skin smooth and fresh looking.
How Much Does Juvéderm® Cost in Santa Barbara?
The cost of Juvéderm® fillers varies based on the selected filler, how many injections are required and whether other treatments are performed at the same time. We go over the costs along with our payment options including financing through Alphaeon® and CareCredit®.
