1. WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?

Collagen used to be the most commonly administered Filler, but now Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Fillers are the newer injectables of choice.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a substance naturally produced within your body that attracts moisture. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. When injected into the facial area with Hyaluronic Acid (HA), you’ll instantly see plumper, fuller lips, cheeks, or other injected areas.

2. WHAT ARE JUVÈDERM INJECTABLE DERMAL FILLERS?

JUVÉDERM® Is A Cosmetic Treatment Referred To As An Injectable Filler. Clients use JUVÉDERM® To Restore Facial Contours And Improve Signs Of Aging. JUVÉDERM® Are Injectable Fillers With A Base Of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). JUVÉDERM® Is A Treatment That Focuses On The Face, Specifically:

  • Cheeks
  • Lips
  • And Around The Mouth
  • Jaw
  • Chin

Lip Fillers are most commonly made with Hyaluronic Acid (abbreviated HA). HA is a substance naturally produced within the body that attracts moisture and can hold up to 1000 times its weight. When injected into the facial area with Hyaluronic Acid, you’ll instantly see plumper, fuller lips.

We use frequently Hyaluronic Acid as a soft tissue Filler (aka lips, cheeks) because of its bio-compatibility and reversibility. HA is naturally in most connective or your tissues, synovial fluid, the vitreous fluid of the eye, and umbilical cords in humans.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Fillers are the most popular choice among your many injectable lip treatment choices. HA Fillers can instantly plump your lips when injected while also stimulating your skin’s natural collagen production. HA Fillers are usually safer and provide more immediate effects than many other Fillers alternatives, such as collagen.

Plump lips are one of the most common cosmetic treatments that women get today. We know Kylie Jenner for her very full lips. For many, that plump lip look is a “must-have” beauty treatment.

3. WHAT PRODUCTS DOES JUVÈDERM MAKE?

JUVÉDERM® makes a variety of products targeting the facial area. These include:

JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA XC – An injectable gel is for deep injection in the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss and for augmentation of the chin region to improve the chin profile in adults over 21.

JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE XC, JUVÉDERM® ULTRA PLUS XC, and JUVÉDERM® ULTRA XC – Injectable gels are for injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE XC injectable gel is for adults over 21.

JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA XC – Injectable gel is for injection into the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral lines in adults over 21.

JUVÉDERM® ULTRA XC – Injectable gel is for injection into the lips and perioral area for lip augmentation in adults over 21.

They plan each of the JUVÉDERM® products to create a certain texture, depth, and density—meaning certain fillers will work better for certain areas you want to enhance. Your cosmetic specialist should be able to determine what product is best for your needs.

4. WHO ARE JUVÈDERM COMPETITORS FOR HA COSMETIC FILLERS?

There are several types of Cosmetic Fillers used for lip enhancement. Some of the well-known fillers for Lips Injectables include:

Each vendor’s product creates a certain texture, depth, and density—meaning certain fillers will work better for certain areas you want to enhance. Your cosmetic specialist should be able to determine what product is best for your needs.

Which one is best? The choice is up to you and your cosmetic specialist. They reported Kylie Jenner to have said, “I like to use JUVÈDERM for the lips because it’s made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA). That means it keeps and absorbs water, so it’s specifically great for lips.” (1)

At Sandia Skin + Face, we recommend JUVÈDERM for your Lip Filler choice.

5. SHOULD I GET A DERMAL FILLER (JUVÈDERM) OR BOTOX?

Dermal Fillers enhance your facial features by adding volume to the recessed areas around the corners of the lips, mouth, temples, chin, and cheekbones. Once you have an HA Filler injected, it will replenish your natural Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which has diminished as you age. HA Fillers will give your skin a smooth, plump, and hydrated look. HA Fillers can work in tandem with Botox to rejuvenate the face.

BOTOX and alternatives like Jeuveau, Xeomin, and Dysport are neuromodulators and not Dermal Fillers, which are used to treat wrinkles that naturally occur:

  • Around the Eyes
  • Forehead
  • In between your eyebrows

As these wrinkles become more pronounced with age, BOTOX can relax the muscles that cause those wrinkles. After the BOTOX injection, your injected muscle can no longer tighten and contract. So wrinkles relax and soften after BOTOX injections.

6. CAN YOU DESCRIBE THE DERMAL FILLER (JUVÈDERM) TREATMENT?

Step 1: Pre-Treatment Consultation

Your cosmetic specialist will review your medical history since skin conditions, allergies, and medications can affect your safety and the results, and answer all your questions.

Your cosmetic specialist will then evaluate your face in order to examine the specific areas to be injected. We may mark targeted Injection sites.

Step 2: Anesthetization

It will clean the injection sites marked using an antibacterial solution.

A cold instrument may apply to the skin to numb it. We may also administer anesthetic ointment or local anesthesia. However, most Filler products contain the anesthetic known as lidocaine, which can help minimize discomfort.

Step 3: JUVÈDERM Filler Injection

Injection of the Filler will only take a few seconds per injection site. Your cosmetic specialist will inject a precise amount of Filler beneath the skin, massage it into the area, evaluate the results, and may use additional Filler as needed.  

You are likely to experience mild discomfort. Depending on the number of areas to be injected, the entire procedure can last 5-30 minutes. You will go back to your normal activities immediately after the Filler procedure.

Step 4: Post JUVÈDERM Filler Injection

The results of the dermal fillers treatment are almost immediate. You will notice a considerable difference in the volume of your lips immediately after treatment. However, the results of the final Filler will remain hidden under the swelling and bruising during the first few days and up to two weeks for some individuals.

Swelling from the injection is far more noticeable on the lips than elsewhere on the face. The HA Fillers are binding to water underneath the skin, causing the lips to get plump. The injections can cause bruising and bleeding underneath the skin, which means swelling. Swelling is a part of the healing process. Please don’t overly stress out about the swelling for the first few days.

First 2 Days: During the first two days, you might feel very anxious. Your lips will look huge because of the swelling. You might have trouble eating or drinking, but remember, this is just temporary.

Days 3 & 4: You will start seeing some bruises on and around your lips and may feel lumps on your lips. The bruises and lumps will go away over the next week.

Days 4 thru 7: By the time an entire week has passed, the bruising and lumps on and around the lips should have disappeared. Your lips will approach their last look.

Days 8 thru 14: The lip swelling should be gone by day 14. The size of your lips will also decrease a little during this period. However, you see the eventual results of the Fillers treatment. If the swelling persists after day 14, immediately contact our office.

7. HOW LONG CAN I EXPECT JUVÈDERM (DERMAL FILLER) TO LAST?

Depending on the exact JUVÈDERM Dermal Filler us and the injected facial area, we expect your results to last between six to 18 months.

How long a Dermal Filler will last depends on the type of Filler used for the amount of JUVÈDERM, the facial location, and your metabolism. Dermal Fillers also last longer on areas with the slightest movement. For example, injected cheeks will probably last longer than enhanced lips.

8. HOW MUCH DO LIP JUVÈDERM DERMAL FILLERS COST?

Injections vary in cost depending on:

  •  The specific Dermal Filler you use
  •  The number of Dermal Filler injections required
  •  The exact final facial look result you would like to achieve
  •  The Medical Spa or Physician you use 
  •  The State and City where you receive your procedure

Typically a Single Lip Filler injection visit will cost $500 to $1000 based on the above variables.

9. WHAT ARE JUVÈDERM DERMAL FILLERS SIDE EFFECTS?

To avoid serious side effects, such as injection into an artery causing a skin ulcer or blandness are exceedingly rare, a trained and licensed cosmetic professional does Dermal Filler.

Most side effects are minor and will usually go away within a few hours to weeks. These minor side effects include:

  • Redness
  • Numbness
  • Bruising
  • Allergic Reaction
  • Itching
  • Scarring
  • Sores

Using ice packs can help relieve any swelling and numbness.

10. ARE DERMAL FILLERS LIKE JUVÈDERM CONSIDERED SAFE AND EFFECTIVE?

The National Center for Biotechnology Information website has a report stating, “HA Fillers last longer and require less product to achieve the same cosmetic effect as collagen in the treatment of nasolabial folds, likely leading to them gaining preference among providers and patients.”

11. WHERE ARE DERMAL FILLERS LIKE JUVÈDERM CONSIDERED USED ON MY BODY?

The most common areas on your body to use Dermal Fillers include:

  • Lips
  • Temples
  • Hands
  • Under Eyes
  • Cheeks
  • Chin
  • Earlobes
  • Nasolabial Folds

12. WHO SHOULD BE PERFORMING JUVÈDERM INJECTIONS?

13. HOW DO I CHOOSE A MEDICAL SPA FOR JUVÈDERM INJECTIONS?

When selecting a medical spa for your injectable treatment, give your decision-making process the same care you would for a surgical procedure.

Although a Dermal Filler treatment is non-surgical, Dermal Filler treatments are still a medical procedure that requires knowledge, skill, and training in order to ensure safe and positive results. Choose a Master Level Injector with extensive knowledge of facial anatomy and aesthetics. He or she must have substantial experience in performing Injectable Filler Treatments.
