Juvederm®

Dermal Fillers in New Jersey

Volume loss in our faces is inevitable, since various supporting elements in our skin naturally diminish as we age. This loss is a major reason why we lose a youthful profile, projecting an older or even sickly appearance. This problem can also extend to people who have lost a significant amount of weight, as fat reduction can create sunken hollows on the face and elsewhere.

Juvederm®, available in New Jersey from South Jersey Skin Care & Laser Center, is specially formulated to correct facial structure issues, temporarily reversing these signs of aging or negative results of weight loss by adding volume where it's needed to create youthful contours and a healthy-looking roundness.

A Focus on Juvederm®

Juvederm®, available in Ultra and Ultra Plus formulations at our practice, is a favorite among New Jersey women and men for softening wrinkles, plumping lips, and maintaining a youthful appearance. Unlike facial surgery, the treatment is quick, easy, and requires little to no recovery time. The treatment is comprised of a hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in our bodies.

Juvederm® is administered by a simple injection, targeting key areas where lines have formed, typically around your nose and mouth. This requires a critical eye to ensure that the filler is going exactly where it is needed to provide natural-looking contours and smoothed-out skin.

When Juvederm® is injected into certain areas of the face, it adds volume, which slightly stretches the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and folds. The hyaluronic acid that makes up the product helps to fill out areas of the face where it is needed, and has even been found to accelerate the formation of new collagen. This is a big plus, as collagen is a support structure that helps skin maintain a healthy, fresh look. Ample collagen means fewer wrinkles and longer-lasting results after a Juvederm® treatment session.

Juvederm Treatment Areas
Caption - Although Dr. Levin uses Juvederm® and facial fillers to skillfully treat a number of areas on the face, the most popular areas that are improved with Juvederm® are the nasolabial folds (deep lines that run from near the bottom of the nose and down the sides of the mouth), marionette lines (deep lines that run down from the corners of the mouth), and for thin lips. *

Since the different Juvederm® family members can be used in different areas of the face (Ultra is frequently used for lip augmentation, for example), they are employed separately to treat specific regions of focus. You may want to discuss whether using them in concert to rejuvenate your overall cheek, nose, and mouth area at once is right for you.

What is the Hyaluronic Acid in Juvederm®?

The key component in Juvederm® and other fillers is hyaluronic acid, which is something we're all born with. The natural chemical has a variety of important jobs throughout the body, including keeping joints lubricated and contributing to healthy fluid in the eyes. It also keeps our skin pliant, soft, and full.

The problem with hyaluronic acid is that its presence in our bodies diminishes over time. Overexposure to ultraviolet light (such as what leads to a sunburn) can limit its production, and its loss is very noticeable in our skin. Wrinkles form and our facial shape changes as volume drains away from such areas as the cheeks. A lack of hyaluronic acid, coupled with a corresponding loss of aesthetically beneficial fat, can create a gaunt look by causing facial hollows.

Juvederm® and Voluma reintroduce hyaluronic acid to these problem areas as they add volume, filling in sunken regions and softening harsh, angular lines by rounding them off.

Juvederm® XC is manufactured via a process that produces what is known as cross-linked hyaluronic acid, which is a smooth gel, as opposed to a liquid, which helps it last longer once injected into the face. However, since hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring, the fluid from Juvederm® injections is gradually absorbed back into the body over time. This makes the aesthetic benefits temporary, but also safe to use multiple times as needed for touch-ups or repeated maintenance injections.

Juvederm® Recovery

Following a Juvederm® treatment, Dr. Levin may massage the treatment sites to make sure the filler is properly distributed and the results are even. Before you leave, ice may be applied to your treatment sites to help minimize swelling, inflammation, and bruising. Such side effects, when present, were found in studies to be moderate and last two to four weeks or less. If patients experience anything longer than that after receiving Juvederm®, they should contact their doctor.

Typically, our South Jersey Juvederm® & Voluma patients notice:

  • Treatment is virtually painless
  • Juvederm® results last longer than other fillers on the market
  • A smoother and more taut facial appearance

*Results are unique for each patient, and may vary from person to person.
