With age, it is common for the skin on our faces and bodies to lose elasticity and firmness. This happens largely because of lower levels of connective proteins like collagen and the chronic effects of gravity. Juvederm is a class of soft dermal fillers used to repair and reverse the undesirable aesthetic effects that the aging process causes. Hermann Aesthetics & Wellness offers competitively-priced Juvederm injections that can significantly enhance your already beautiful facial aesthetics, increase self-confidence, and improve your overall well-being.
How Juvederm Works
Juvederm is a blanket term for a class of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a clear, viscous substance produced naturally in the body to keep the skin and other tissues moist and lubricated. It also helps the body to relieve joint pain, soothe acid reflux symptoms, speed up wound healing, and preserve the strength of the bones.
Most people begin producing less hyaluronic acid as they age. Juvederm offers a safe method to increase the body’s levels of the important compound, which helps to restore a more youthful appearance to targeted treatment areas. The FDA has approved Juvederm for adding volume to the cheeks, making the lips plumper, increasing the volume of the earlobes, smoothing out parentheses lines around the mouth, and more.
Types of Juvederm St. Petersburg
There are three types of Juvederm, each formulated for specific uses. Juvederm Ultra XC is used to enhance facial contours by filling mild to moderate smile lines, marionette lines, and wrinkles. It is used in some cases to plump the lips. Results typically last about 9 months before maintenance treatments are needed.
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is similar to Juvederm Ultra XC, except it is thicker and stickier. Its higher viscosity allows it to be used for treating deeper lines and wrinkles. It is also used to correct nasolabial folds that have lost volume over time. Results typically last about 12 months before beginning to fade away. However, every patient will experience unique results.
Juvederm Voluma XC is specifically formulated to treat significant cheek volume loss. It is injected into the deep layers of the cheeks to add volume and improve sunken contours. This safe cosmetic treatment commonly produces results that last up to 2 years before any maintenance injections are needed.
