As two of the most popular dermal fillers at the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation, Dr. Leonard Miller often recommends Juvéderm® and Juvéderm Voluma® for his patients who seek to smooth facial wrinkles and/or add volume to their cheeks or lips.
Juvéderm® and Juvéderm Voluma® dermal fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the human body and bonds to water. When injected under the skin, these molecules act like sponges, bonding to the water that naturally occurs in our skin. This causes a plumping reaction, leading to a smoothing of facial wrinkles and increased volume in treatment areas.
What sets Juvéderm® apart from other dermal fillers like Restylane® and Restylane Lyft® is how it is formulated. It is designed to be absorbed by the body at a slower rate, leading to longer-lasting results. The smoother consistency of Juvéderm® also leads to a more comfortable experience when patients receive treatment. You will begin to see improvement in your appearance immediately following your initial treatment session. Common treatment areas include adding volume to the nasolabial folds, increasing lip fullness, and diminishing lines in the brow. Juvéderm® helps to attain smoother, more youthful-looking skin with results that can last up to one year.
For even longer-lasting results, Voluma® is also available to patients at the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation. Similarly composed of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid – with added Lidocaine to manage discomfort during administration – Voluma® is the only FDA-approved dermal filler of its kind to add volume to the cheeks and mid-facial region. This revolutionary filler can provide instantaneous augmentation results in targeted treatment areas, while also helping to smooth moderate to severe wrinkles of the mid-face for a natural-looking, rejuvenated appearance. The contouring and lifting effects of Voluma® can last up to two years and is for patients 21 years of age and older.
THE JUVÉDERM® PROCEDURE
Treatment sessions typically last 15-30 minutes. Topical and/or injectable numbing options are available to patients upon request.
There is no recovery time with Juvéderm® dermal filler injections. Many of our Boston patients have the treatment performed during their lunch hour. With Juvéderm® dermal fillers, there tends to be less irritation at the injection sites when compared to other dermal fillers. As with any injection to the lip area, you may experience swelling.
Patients of Juvéderm® dermal fillers with Dr. Miller are very happy with the results and many return to the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation for other services like Botox®, medical facials, and advanced laser treatments.
