Juvéderm is a family of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers that can smooth moderate to severe wrinkles or adds volume to the cheeks and lips. Treatment areas include smile lines, corner lines, marionette lines, and vertical lip lines.
At Charles P. Virden, MD in Reno, Nevada, patients receive treatments with Juvéderm Volbella, Vollure, or Voluma depending on their needs and goals. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Charles Virden can create a unique treatment plan that may include one, two, or all of the Juvéderm formulas.
The best candidates for Juvéderm:
Beforehand, the doctor will determine the appropriate formula, injection site(s), and the correct dosage to begin this in-office treatment. Since Juvéderm already has a numbing agent (Lidocaine) included, additional numbing usually isn’t needed. The filler will be delivered through a fine needle to the lips, cheeks, and/or wrinkles and lines around the nose and mouth. Patients will feel a small prick and a tingling sensation from the injection. The treatment typically lasts 30 – 45 minutes.
After the injectable, there might be slight redness in the treated area. There could also be mild swelling, but it should go away rather quickly. Since there’s no downtime associated with Juvéderm, patients can return to their normal activities immediately. The face will be dramatically improved immediately after the treatment, and most patients can expect reliable results for up to 1 year.
Juvéderm has not only become one of the most popular and trusted fillers on the market, it is also one of the most effective at diminishing tough lines and wrinkles. In addition, it can add needed volume to thin lips and deflated cheeks. To learn more about this safe and successful treatment, contact our office for a consultation.
