Frequently Asked Questions
What are Juvèderm® Products?
Juvèderm® products are unnoticeable gel fillers composed of hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar in the human body. The sugar functions naturally on a cellular level to nourish the skin by helping deliver small and large nutrients to the dermis layers. Thus, providing visible youthful results for supple and buoyant skin.
Where is Juvèderm® used and does it hurt?
Juvèderm® products are intended and purposed for use in the facial tissues. All Juvèderm® products have lidocaine incorporated into the gel filler to enhance comfort. Ice or topical anesthetic may also be used to increase comfort. Fine acupuncture like needles are used to further enhance comfort during the treatment. Most people have minimal discomfort of a level 3 on a 0-10 scale.
How long does Juvèderm® last?
Juvèderm® products serve to enhance the buoyancy and suppleness of skin by smoothing the lines and creases of the facial tissues. The expansive line of products have varied purposes with different duration periods. Most individuals who need the Juvèderm® Ultra line of products will need to have enhancements completed between nine months and one year, while those who need the Vobella® XC, Voluma® XC, and Vollure™ XC line will need enhancement between nine months and two years to maintain the desired results. Areas of the skin which are heavily affected may need enhancement sooner than the approximated time ranges given.
