After Juvederm TreatmentJuvederm Q & A

What is Juvéderm?

Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can restore lost volume to the face. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that’s naturally found in the body. It retains water and helps in nutrient delivery. As a person ages, their hyaluronic acid starts to decrease, but Juvéderm can add that volume back to the face. Juvéderm can be used on all types of skin and is safe for use in nearly all patients who want to add volume in specific areas of the face.

Where can Juvéderm be used?

Juvéderm dermal fillers, including Juvéderm Ultra and Juvéderm Ultra XC are used to fill in moderate wrinkles, including smile lines and marionette lines. It’s also used for contouring, filling in scars, and moderate lip enhancement. Juvéderm Ultra Plus and Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC can be used to fill in more serious facial wrinkles, including smile lines and marionette lines. It can fill in the nasolabial folds, shape the face, and add more significant volume to the lips. Juvéderm Voluma® XC is used in the mid-face area only, primarily to add volume to hollowed cheeks.

Who is a good candidate for Juvéderm treatment?

People who are unhappy with loss of facial volume due to aging, weight loss, or illness may be ideal candidates for this treatment. People who are unhappy with the volume or the shape of their lips can also benefit from Juvéderm treatment.

How is Juvéderm Voluma® XC different from other Juvéderm formulas?

Juvéderm Voluma XC is the only product that’s Federal Drug Administration (FDA) approved for adding volume to the cheek area. Juvéderm Voluma uses a unique type of technology, Vycross®, which allows for advanced hyaluronic acid cross linking. Due to this specialized process, the hyaluronic acid lasts longer — about 2 years in some cases.

How long does Juvéderm last?

Juvéderm lasts for up to a year, and the Juvéderm Voluma formula has lasted as long as 2 years in some patients.

How long does it take to see the results of Juvéderm injections?

The results can be seen immediately. The treatment area may be slightly swollen for a few days, at after which the true results can be seen.

There are not enough words to express how pleased I am with every procedure I’ve had done. Dr. Youssef is an amazing surgeon, not only is he caring but also a perfectionist. All I can say is that it was a life changing experience.

I have been a patient of Dr. Mark for over 10 years and have had MANY procedures done by him and Michelle. I absolutely love their work, and they are also wonderful people! I credit Dr. Mark for making me always look youthful and never overdone. I recommend Younique to everyone I know!
