While skin creams and serums may initially be effective at keeping wrinkles and lines at bay, they only do so much. If pesky, noticeable lines, wrinkles and other aging signs are making you feel self-conscious, treatment with a Juvederm injectable product may be right for you.
Foglietti Fostyk Plastic Surgery offers an array of non-surgical facial rejuvenation and skin procedures, including Juvederm XC, Juvederm XC Ultra Plus, Vollure and Volbella XC. All injectables in the Juvederm family of products have their specific indications. Please contact our Cleveland practice to learn more about this non-injectable treatment, or continue reading below.
Learn About Juvederm XC, Juvederm XC Ultra Plus, Vollure and Volbella XC
Juvederm refers to a family of injectable products derived from naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid, which restores volume and binds moisture to the skin for a firmer, smoother and youthful-appearing effect.
Juvederm XC is FDA-approved for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds. It can also be used to augment the lips. Juvederm XC Ultra Plus is designed to smooth wrinkles and facial folds, including those around the nose and mouth. Juvederm Voluma adds volume to lift and contour flat or sunken cheeks. Juvederm Volbella XC is designed to add subtle volume to the lips and smooth out the appearance of vertical lip lines.
What Happens During Treatment?
During the consultation phase, a member of our team will meet with you to discuss the details of treatment. Not only will they explain the injection points and amount of Juvederm product needed to obtain the results you seek, they will also discuss any complementary treatments or procedures they think can enhance results. Ultimately, the details of your treatment will be tailored to your unique needs and goals.
Juvederm can be administered in our office in as little as 15 minutes. No anesthetic is needed as the product contains lidocaine, a numbing agent. Using a thin, sterile needle, small amounts of the Juvederm product of your choice will be injected into the deep layers of the skin around the mouth. The treated areas may be gently massaged.
There is no downtime with Juvederm products, meaning you can resume all activities and return to work immediately after your treatment. Minor side effects include swelling, bruising, tenderness and discomfort at the injection site(s). These effects are temporary and should resolve after a few days of treatment. The final results may take up to a week to appear. Most patients enjoy results up to a year. To maintain your results long-term, repeat treatments are recommended. We can recommend a repeat treatment schedule based on how your body responds to the injectable and your personal preferences.
