Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). As you age, time, sunlight, and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. This lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds, like those “parentheses” lines around your nose and mouth.
To fight those parentheses, Juvéderm® helps replace the HA your skin has lost, adding volume to smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm is a smooth-consistency HA gel that is FDA approved to last up to one year with only one treatment. Juvéderm is formulated with lidocaine, a common anesthetic, to provide a more comfortable experience during and after treatment.
Due to the fact that hyaluronic acid is naturally-occurring in our skin, Juvéderm not only adds volume, it also nourishes healthy skin function. Your skin will exhibit youthful fullness and be softer to the touch.
Juvéderm is also an excellent way to add subtle volume and contoured shape to your cheeks and lips, thanks to the different formulations they offer patients.
Benefits of Juvéderm XC
Juvéderm is one of the most popular volume-restoring options for patients for a reason!
When you receive an injection of Juvéderm XC, you will enjoy:
- A younger appearance, instantly. Juvéderm XC will restore volume to the treated area as soon as it is injected. The volumized skin will support areas where fine lines and wrinkles have developed from loss of volume. Your lines and wrinkles will be filled in and smoothed away. The hyaluronic acid also encourages your skin to have an overall fuller and healthier appearance.
- Subtle, natural-looking results. Juvéderm XC is administered with your unique appearance in mind. You will still be able to use your facial muscles comfortably and you will not look overfilled. The injection is accepted by your skin, because of your body’s own history of producing HA.
- A quick procedure. Our nurse injector will advise and administer your Juvéderm XC. Depending on the number of areas you would like to have treated, your procedure can be completed in as little as thirty minutes. You will be able to return to work immediately after your appointment, if you choose.
- Non-invasive treatment. Your Juvéderm XC is injected using a very fine needle. There is no need to make any incisions or put stress on your body. The procedure is gentle and non-traumatic.
- A short recovery. You may experience swelling at your injection site, but this will abate within three days. Your treatment site will be completely healed within two weeks.
- Long-lasting results. Depending on the area where you received your injection, your results will last six months, up to two years. Juvéderm XC offers some of the longest-lasting results of all dermal fillers currently available to patients.
- Contoured features. If you would like to see more volume in your lips, you can opt for an injection of Juvéderm Ultra XC. Juvéderm Voluma XC is designed to add natural-looking volume to augment your cheeks or restore volume lost in your midfacial area.
A treatment with Juvéderm XC is an excellent way to look younger and healthier, without looking like you have undergone a cosmetic procedure. If you see a reduction of volume in your skin, as well as the development of lines and wrinkles, you may be a good candidate for Juvéderm XC. If you wish you had more volume in your cheeks, or had fuller, more attractive lips that still look subtle, Juvéderm XC can be an excellent, minimally-invasive solution for you.
You must be 21 and over to receive the Juvéderm XC injection. Best candidates for a dermal filler like Juvéderm will also understand that they will best maintain the results of their injection if they maintain a healthy diet, active lifestyle, and refrain from smoking. Candidates should also have an open mindset towards the results of their cosmetic procedure.
A wide variety of factors can determine your candidacy for Juvéderm XC. To learn more about the best skin rejuvenation treatment for you, call the Quinn Medical Day Spa today to schedule your consultation!
Skin Rejuvenation Options
Quinn Medical Day Spa offers a variety of minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation options to its patients. If you would like to see healthier, younger-looking skin, the following treatments can be performed in addition to or as an alternative to Juvéderm XC.
Your Options with Juvéderm:
Juvéderm Ultra XC
Juvéderm Ultra XC contains a small amount of lidocaine, for your comfort.
Intended for injection into the lips and perioral area, Juvéderm Ultra XC adds natural-looking fullness that will last for to a year. Juvéderm Ultra XC’s formula is designed to fill in the delicate hollows and fine lines that can form around the mouth with age, as well as to smooth the appearance of mild to moderate nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC
Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC has a larger particle size than Juvéderm Ultra XC. This makes it a ideal option for filling moderate to deep wrinkles and volumizing larger areas of your skin. Lidocaine is also a component of Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC, to ensure a comfortable injection.
Juvéderm Voluma XC
This Juvéderm formulation is designed for deep injection into the midface in order to restore lost volume. Juvéderm Voluma XC is injected deeper into patients’ skin, where there are fewer nerve endings. This makes Voluma less painful to receive than other fillers, as well as less likely to cause bruising. Voluma lasts for up to 18 to 24 months.
Candidates who want to add youthful volume to their cheeks must be over 21 to receive a treatment of Juvéderm Voluma XC.
Juvéderm Vollure XC
Fills and smooths moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles. Juvéderm Vollure XC is formulated with VYCROSS technology, which maintains the youthful results of the injection for up to 18 months.
Juvéderm Volbella XC
An injection of Volbella XC will add subtle but noticeable volume to the lips, as well as smooth the surrounding vertical lip lines. Juvéderm Volbella XC is an excellent option to patients who would like to correct lip asymmetry or to achieve natural-looking lip augmentation. The results achieved with Volbella XC can last for a year or more. Candidates must be over 21.
Botox combats signs of aging in patients’ skin by calming the muscles that are responsible for the formation of wrinkles. Laughing, frowning, or stress in general can cause our muscles to become overactive, eventually resulting in lines or folds in our skin. Botox is a neuromodulator, which means it effectively smooths the skin by relaxing the muscle causing the wrinkle. Botox can be both corrective and preventative. This injection can smooth the lines caused by muscle over-firing, or be received as a means of preventing a wrinkle from developing any further. Results last for roughly three months. Botox cannot treat wrinkles not caused by muscle use, also known as “static wrinkles.” Many patients receive a combination of both Botox and a dermal filler like Juvéderm in order to best address skin aging and restore youthful volume.
Xeomin achieves the same smoothing effect as Botox by calming muscle movement. Unlike Botox, Xeomin contains no additives. This reduces the likelihood of your body developing antibodies and rejecting the injection. Xeomin is an excellent option for smoothing or preventing the development of forehead lines and crows feet. This injectable should be received every three to six months in order to achieve best long-results. Patients can decide to receive Xeomin alone or in conjunction with a dermal filler.
If you would like to have skin that is firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking overall, our nurse injector can help you find a treatment option that is right for you. Call today to schedule your complimentary consultation!
During your consultation at the Quinn Medical Day Spa, our nurse injector will answer any questions you have about your skin rejuvenation options. It is important to have good understanding of your goals for your appearance and to make sure you get the results you want! After assessing your medical history, medication use, and lifestyle habits, our nurse injector will determine your candidacy for Juvéderm XC.
Your skin rejuvenation plan will be tailored to your individual needs. Every patient’s skin and body are unique to them: if your wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss can be addressed by an alternative skin treatment, these options will be discussed with you.
Your Juvederm Procedure
At Quinn Medical Day Spa, our trained nurse injector can inject Juvéderm in approximately 30 minutes. Patients who are receiving multiple injections, such as a combined treatment of Botox and Juvéderm XC, may need up to an hour to complete their procedure. A thin needle is used, and because lidocaine is already formulated in the filler, the discomfort associated with this treatment is minimal. Injections are gently made into wrinkles and lines on the patient’s face.
After your treatment, you will be free to return to your daily schedule! While you will receive personalized instructions, do not be afraid to ask any questions that you may have at this time about your recovery.
After the procedure, patients may want to recover at home. Though there is no significant downtime after Juvéderm is administered, patients may experience slight redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising, and itching. Even though the area may take two weeks to heal completely, patients do not need to wait to show off their revitalized appearance. These conditions will subside within three days. Patients are also advised to avoid sun exposure as much as possible during this time, as well as to not touch the treated area as much as possible.
The results are usually visible immediately. The wrinkles will be substantially diminished, and the face will look smoother and more youthful overall.
A treatment with Juvéderm XC will subtly but effectively add volume to your skin.
The hyaluronic acid in the injection will not only smooth and erase your fine lines and wrinkles, it will also give you healthier, more vibrant skin overall! If you decided to receive an injection of Juvéderm Ultra XC, you will enjoy more volume in your lips, or your cheeks, if you received Juvéderm Voluma XC.
The longevity of your results will range from six months to two years, depending on your unique body, the type of filler received, and the injection location. Your results can be maintained for a longer period with strategically scheduled touch-ups. Our nurse injector will assess your outcomes and work with you to create an injection plan that is best for you.
Juvéderm XC can take years off your appearance! To learn more about how Juvéderm XC can restore youthful, natural-looking volume to your skin, call the Medical Day Spa at Quinn Plastic Surgery Center today to schedule a consultation.
The price of your Juvéderm XC treatment will depend on the area or areas which you would like addressed and the number of Juvéderm XC vials required to achieve your desired results. Once you have completed your consultation with our nurse injector, we will work with you to create an individualized treatment plan. You will then receive a cost breakdown based on your uniquely-tailored procedure.
