How Can JUVÉDERM® Injections Contour Your Face?
As you age, your body’s production of collagen and elastin slows. Your face might start sagging, and wrinkles develop. JUVÉDERM injections can contour your face to help restore lost volume. Individuals can look younger, and their wrinkles will appear less noticeable following dermal injections.
If you have sustained volume loss in the face, we invite you to schedule a consultation with our practitioners at Advanced Dermatology in the Greater Houston, TX area to discuss if JUVÉDERM injections are the right choice for your needs. A member of our team will sit down with you to listen to your goals and evaluate if dermal fillers can help recontour your face. JUVÉDERM injections can be used alone or combined with other nonsurgical treatment options for even greater results in Katy, Pearland, League City, or Sugar Land, TX.
All About JUVÉDERM injections
JUVÉDERM injections are made up of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a substance naturally produced by the body. There is an entire family of JUVÉDERM injectable fillers that each target different areas and provide varying results. Our practitioners will pick between JUVÉDERM XC, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA™ XC, JUVÉDERM Ultra XC, and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC.
The JUVÉDERM family of fillers has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and can smooth away laugh lines, marionette lines, smile lines, nasolabial folds, and more. The filler will also help restore lost volume by helping to restore fullness to plump lips and cheeks. Individuals enjoy long-lasting, natural-looking results that quickly make them look younger and rejuvenated.
Dermal fillers can contour your face by restoring lost volume in the lips and cheeks. It works well for both men and women. If you have recently lost weight or are experiencing age-related volume loss, JUVÉDERM dermal fillers might be an ideal nonsurgical way to improve your experience.
What to expect during JUVÉDERM injections
JUVÉDERM injections take only about 15 – 30 minutes to carry out. The aesthetics team at Advanced Dermatology in the Greater Houston area will clean the injection area. JUVÉDERM fillers contain lidocaine to help reduce any discomfort during the treatment process.
Following treatment, you can return to your normal routine, but you should avoid strenuous exercise for the first day. You should also avoid touching the treatment area, which could accidentally move the dermal filler to areas where you do not want the filler.
The treated area will usually remain swollen for 7 – 10 days. You might also notice slight swelling in the treatment areas. JUVÉDERM injections last for about a year, but some patients will enjoy results for a few years before needing to repeat the treatment process with a touch-up to maintain the results.
Generally, it takes only one treatment session to enjoy facial recontouring from JUVÉDERM. However, some patients opt to undergo a follow-up treatment session to gain even greater volume.
Once the injection swelling eases, you’ll start to notice the optimal results from JUVÉDERM dermal filler. The treated area can appear fuller with restored volume.
