JUVÉDERM® family of products is a new generation of fillers designed for facial rejuvenation, lip enhancement, and treatment of wrinkles. Facial lines and wrinkles are caused by a gradual breakdown of the body’s collagen and the elastic fibers in the skin. No one is immune from experiencing this normal aging process. Squinting, frowning and smiling also inflict stress on the underlying collagen in the skin and accelerate the formation of furrows. Until recently injectable collagen was the most widely used available cosmetic filler to improve the appearance of these lines.
Science has given us a better alternative – Juvéderm® ULTRA & Juvéderm® ULTRA PLUS and today, the new JUVÉDERM® XC formulation that now includes lidocaine to enhance your comfort. You can now get the smoothness you expect, with the improved comfort you want. JUVÉDERM® XC provides smooth and natural looking results and now a more comfortable experience – so everyone will notice but no one will know! JUVÉDERM® is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Your healthcare professional eases JUVÉDERM® injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds – the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
With JUVÉDERM® from Adam and Eve Med Spa in Scottsdale Arizona the injection process takes only about 15 minutes and results are immediate. Plus, there’s minimal recovery or downtime. So you can step into our clinic for treatment and step right back into your life. And now with the newest formulation of JUVÉDERM®, the effects of lidocaine take place in seconds, potentially reducing the need for further anesthetic. Side effects are rare, but may include minor bruising or swelling. After treatments these symptoms subside within 24 to 48 hours. The treatments themselves are relatively pain-free as we will apply a prescription numbing cream to the area prior to the treatment. You may feel pressure during the treatment, but rarely will you experience pain. Juvéderm™ products are sold by the syringe and the number of syringes required for maximum result will be discussed with you during your consultation. We can fill scars, erase a “nose bump”, and add volume to the lips, cheeks, chin and any other area. The most commonly treated areas are nasolabial folds, deep frown lines, lip lines, age furrows, and lips. Consultations are free and you and your practitioner can decide whether to use Juvéderm™ ULTRA , Juvéderm™ ULTRA PLUS, and/or Juvederm Voluma. The Juvéderm™ ULTRA formula tends to be somewhat more pliable and effective in areas of muscle movement. On the other hand Juvéderm™ ULTRA PLUS tends to deteriorate at a slower rate.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years, in patients over the age of 21. It’s different than JUVÉDERM® XC and works on a different area of the face. JUVÉDERM® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area.
