Soignez-Vous offers our patients in NYC Juvederm, a collection of dermal fillers including Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Vollure and Juvederm Voluma. Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can add volume to the cheeks and face and refresh your look.
One of the naturally occurring substances our body produces that helps to deliver and maintain volume within our skin is Hyaluronic Acid (commonly referred to in the industry as HA).
Juvederm is a gel made up of a modified type of HA that can be injected beneath your skin, adding volume to your chin, your lips, the nasolabial folds, and marionette lines without any surgery whatsoever. This process also temporarily restores volume loss beneath the surface of your skin and can be performed in minutes.
The different formulas of Juvederm available contain varying amounts of hyaluronic acid and may have some differences in syringe sizes. Depending on the locations to be treated and what results you are looking for, you could choose from:
Also, each formula above comes in an “XC” version, which contains lidocaine, helping the injection process to be even less painful than it already is, without the need for a separate anesthetic before the procedure.
Juvederm is a noninvasive procedure, meaning that there is no surgery required. A standard procedure can take as little as 15 minutes or up to an hour, depending on how many injections are being performed or the location of the area being treated. While you might feel a slight pricking sensation with each injection, the process is not intended to be painful, nor is it typically considered as such.
Results are often seen immediately due to the nature of the solution, which is composed of a gel made from hyaluronic acid, which works to fill in wrinkles from beneath your skin. The results of this procedure are often present immediately, have no recovery time necessary, and, depending on one’s body and the application site, can last for up to two years.
Juvederm is designed for adults and is not intended to resolve any underlying medical conditions. There are a variety of volumizing solution formulas, each intended to treat different types of wrinkles in adults. Choosing which Juvederm solution to go with depends largely on the results you are looking for. Our NYC Juvederm experts are ready to discuss your aesthetic goals and establish a tailored treatment plan to meet them.
When it comes to adding volume to one’s lips, the two main Juvederm formulas are Ultra XC and Volbella XC. Ultra XC focuses on adding volume to your lips, whereas Volbella XC is primarily directed towards lip lines and wrinkles around your mouth.
It is also possible to use Voluma to treat volume loss under your eyes, whereas Voluma XC would be ideal for plumping up your cheeks and to help give the skin a bit of a lift in that area. Vollure XC would be ideal for treating the lines extending around your nose and mouth, those that are often called marionette lines, or parentheses. Products can be layered for more profound effects.
The softest of the HA fillers is in the form of a cross-linked cohesive gel. Its proprietary Hylacross™ technology is similar to bedsprings in a mattress, the more springs you have the more firm the mattress is, and thus, the more cross-linked the HA the more thick or firm it is.
Juvederm Ultra is a great choice for lip plumping due to its innate softness, whereas Juvederm Ultra Plus is better for areas of deeper folds requiring more firm lifting of tissues due to its higher level of cross-linking. Juvederm Ultra can last between 6 and 9 months on average (individual results may vary).Learn More
One of the more robust and versatile HA fillers, this cohesive gel is slightly more cross-linked than Juvederm Ultra which is what makes it more viscous and slightly longer-lasting.
Juvederm Ultra Plus is a great choice for filling in the nasolabial folds and marionette lines of the lower face due to this greater level of cross-linking. This feature allows it to lift more efficiently in areas that are subject to breakdown by dynamic movements.Learn More
Juvederm Volbella XC injectable gel is primarily for lip injection. Volbella is injected with an ultrathin needle directly into the lips, plumping the lips and getting rid of so-called “lipstick lines” or perioral lines that form in the lips. Results can last for between 6 and 12 months.Learn More
Juvederm Vollure XC is all about smoothness. Vollure is injected into areas where we commonly get moderate to severe wrinkles, like the “marionette lines” around the nose and mouth. Vollure corrects these lines and its long-lasting formula means results can stick around for up to 12 months with proper treatment.Learn More
Juvederm Voluma XC is designed to add volume to the chin and cheeks, as well as other areas where volume loss occurs with age. Voluma is all about staying power. With proper application, the volume boost from Voluma can last longer than other dermal fillers of its kind.Learn More
A smile is universal - a key part of our human body language understood by anyone. It can be an invitation for a conversation, a silly face for the family photo, a gesture of kindness shared with a passerby, or even the perfect flirtatious glance to a companion over dinner and a drink.
With the grace of age and a life well-lived, sometimes our skin tends to carry the weight of our happiness. Wrinkles, fine lines, and the loss of the elasticity our cheeks once had can often make us feel as if we look older than we feel inside.
While age and grace are nothing to be ashamed of, it is only natural to want to revitalize our skin and give our smiles the perfect frame again - ready to dazzle when the right moment arrives.
Different gauged needles will be selected for different treatment areas based on the delicacy of the skin in that area.
A topical anesthetic may be applied before injection; however, the treatment is quite tolerable on its own since it is infused with lidocaine powder. This has been shown to decrease patient discomfort by 90% on its own. Your skin will be cleaned and prepped before injection. Ice may then be applied to further reduce discomfort.
Your injector will help you determine which filler is best for you, however, pregnant and lactating women should avoid its use as it has not been studied on such populations. You should not have treatment if you have severe allergies marked by a history of anaphylaxis or a history or presence of multiple severe allergies. Juvederm Ultra should not be used in patients with a history of allergies to Gram-positive bacterial proteins. Juvederm Ultra or Ultra Plus XC should not be used in patients with a history of allergies to lidocaine.
