If aging has begun to change your appearance, or you weren’t born with specific features that you’ve always wanted, you can now achieve all of your aesthetic goals thanks to an effective family of dermal fillers. At Blue Illusion Beauty in San Diego, Murrieta, and Carlsbad, CA, we are proud to offer Juvederm: a collection of dermal fillers that can help you reach all of your anti-aging and aesthetic goals in a quick and virtually painless appointment.
What Is Juvederm Used For?
Juvederm is a collection of dermal fillers that can improve your appearance by making subtle changes, fighting against the aging process, smoothing lines and wrinkles, and filling different areas on the face. This collection includes various types of fillers specifically designed to treat different areas of the face.
Each has a specific formulation made of different-sized particles that help fill in larger and smaller areas as needed to deliver the most natural and subtle-looking results. Whether you want to erase the signs of aging in the lower half of your face or make some tweaks in your appearance, there is a filler from this collection that can help you do just that in a quick appointment that will deliver long-lasting results.
Improving the Cheeks
As you age, your cheeks can begin to flatten due to volume loss and a change in facial fat distribution. When this happens, you can begin to lose that sculpted and defined appearance as hollow areas form.
There are fillers in this collection specifically designed to help restore volume, shape, and definition to the cheeks to help enhance your appearance and combat aging. Voluma will restore instant volume to the cheeks and deliver long-lasting results that you can enjoy for up to two years or longer.
Re-Creating Your Chin Profile
If you’ve never been happy with the appearance of your chin profile, and how it looks has nothing to do with the aging process, we can use Juvederm Voluma to enhance your chin and create a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. Injections deep into the chin will improve and re-create your chin profile so that you can love how you look. Injections in the chin can last up to one year and will redefine and reshape the chin to help meet your aesthetic goals.
Smoothing Lines and Facial Folds
Vollure is a filler from this collection specifically designed to smooth facial wrinkles and folds that form in the lower and half of the face. Unlike expression lines that tend to form on the upper half of the face, facial folds and wrinkles on the lower half are almost always attributed to volume loss.
Injections into specific areas around the nose and mouth can help smooth parentheses lines and other forms of smile lines, including nasolabial folds. The Ultra XC formulation can also smooth these lines and help restore volume and youth to the lower half of the face.
Enhancing the Lips
Patients have different reasons and goals when they choose to enhance their lips with a lip filler. This collection of fillers has two different formulations designed to augment the lips: Volbella and Ultra XC. The Ultra XC formulation can help increase fullness in one or both of the lips. It can also help those who have experienced the signs of aging around their mouth improve their lips and restore their natural volume.
Those who simply want larger lips can also use this filler to achieve their goals. The Ultra XC and the Volbella formulation can also enhance the lips, but as an added benefit, it can smooth lipstick lines around the mouth which are those tiny vertical lines that form at the top of the upper lip and are very difficult to treat with skincare treatments or products.
The Treatment Process
There are so many different fillers in this collection that can help meet each of the aesthetic needs of different patients. Whether you want to treat, correct, or enhance one or more areas of your face, we can find the right filler to do it. Because there are so many different fillers designed to meet different needs, it’s important that we first schedule an initial consultation to help determine which of these formulations are right for you.
At this consultation, we will confirm that Juvederm is the best option for you. We will learn more about any experience you’ve had with injectables, your medical history and confirm that you aren’t allergic to anything in the injectable. Then, we will discuss your areas of concern. We will evaluate your facial anatomy and determine which formulations will help you meet your goals.
Once we design your customized treatment plan, we can give you a better idea of how much filler will be used in each area so that you know what to expect on the day of your treatment. When you arrive for your appointment, we will begin by sanitizing your skin to ensure a successful outcome.
Then, our injector will carefully inject your chosen fillers into strategic areas of your face to combat your specific areas of concern. This process is quick and virtually painless. The entire Juvederm collection is formulated with lidocaine, which is a mild numbing agent. This ingredient helps create a comfortable experience during and after the injection process.
Caring for Your Skin Post-Treatment
Once your appointment is complete, you can go about your day. You can return to work, pick up your kids from school, go shopping, or go out to lunch with friends. You won’t be limited in any way, but you should follow some specific directions to help ensure the best outcome. Specifically, you need to avoid strenuous workouts for 24 hours after your treatment.
If you want to work out on the day of your treatment, do it before your scheduled appointment. You should also avoid increasing your body temperature, excess sun exposure, and touching the treatment sites. Don’t plan any facial massages in the days following your treatment so that you can let the filler settle and work accordingly.
As soon as you’re injected with one of these fillers, you will see an immediate change in your appearance. Depending on what you choose to treat, lines and wrinkles will fade, your lips will look fuller, and your chin profile will improve. However, your results will continue to develop in the week following your treatment.
Each of these fillers delivers long-lasting results that last year or longer based on the formulation, the injection location, and the rate at which your body metabolizes the product. When you notice a change in your appearance, all you need to do is schedule a follow-up treatment. Follow-up treatments are important if you want to maintain consistent results over time.
