As you get older, it’s normal for the way your skin looks and feels to begin to change. But that’s not something that you necessarily have to tolerate. If you’re looking to get healthier, younger-looking skin, then Juvederm could be the solution for you. At Sule Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX, we can offer you natural-looking and long-lasting results with any of the different types of Juvederm available here.
What Are the Different Types of Juvederm?
Are you unhappy with the way your skin looks? Maybe wrinkling and sagging are making you feel older and more self-conscious than you’d like. If you’re struggling with the appearance of your skin, then getting an injectable filler like Juvederm could be the right solution for you.
There are several different types of this filler. Depending on the results that you’re looking for and the areas of the face you’d like treated, you will receive one or more of these types.
Here is a close-up look at what each type can do for you and your skin:
XC and Vollure XC
As you get older, you may find that wrinkles are more likely to appear around parts of the face that move around a lot. That means that areas like your mouth tend to wrinkle faster than other parts of the face. As you smile, frown, eat, and speak, the creases that form in the mouth and nose area deepen and become permanent.
XC and Vollure XC will help you diminish and even erase these wrinkles, also known as smile lines. This will provide you with a younger, fuller, and healthier appearance.
If you’ve noticed that your face has lost a lot of volume with age, that’s completely natural. When you’re young, there’s a lot of fullness in your face, which is partly what makes you look so youthful and healthy. As the volume decreases with age, you may find yourself appearing gaunter and older than you feel on the inside.
Voluma XC is specifically designed to help with this issue. This filler targets the cheek area, giving you back the fullness that you may have lost. In turn, it also lifts any sagging skin, decreasing and even getting rid of any jowls.
Ultra XC and Volbella XC
If you’re not satisfied with the appearance of your lips, then these two fillers might be right for you. Along with a loss of volume in your cheeks, you may lose volume in your lips as you get older. If you already have naturally very thin lips, then they may look like they’re about to disappear altogether. Super thin lips can make you seem older and more severe than you really are.
Opting for one of these two fillers will help put the volume back into your lips. This will give you fuller, plumper, and more defined lips that will help you look healthier and younger.
All About Juvederm
If you’re thinking of getting one of these injections, then you may have a few questions. Here’s everything you should know before you make an appointment at our friendly and welcoming clinic.
What Is It?
This is a collection of dermal fillers that are designed to help you look younger and healthier. Each type is carefully formulated to provide you with optimal results. When you receive this treatment, the product is injected into the skin using a very fine and precise needle.
Their main ingredient is hyaluronic acid, which provides you with a way that is both safe and effective to get and maintain the youthful appearance you’ve been missing. When you receive your injections from our clinic, you can trust our carefully-trained staff to help you achieve the results you want.
Why Do We Get Wrinkles?
Wrinkles are a natural side effect of aging. Your skin is made up of different chemicals, including the proteins elastin and collagen. These proteins provide your skin with its structure and are what help it snap back into place after you’ve made a facial expression. However, as you get older, your body stops being able to produce as much collagen and elastin, which is what leads to wrinkling and sagging.
Your skin also contains the sugar hyaluronic acid. Among many things, this sugar helps to keep your skin hydrated. But, like collagen and elastin, the amount of hyaluronic acid present in your skin begins to diminish, leading to dry, less well-protected skin. This loss will also result in a loss of volume in your face.
What Does It Do?
As we mentioned, this dermal filler contains hyaluronic acid as its main ingredient. When our technicians strategically inject the filler into different parts of the face, the hyaluronic acid acts in a few different ways. The first thing it does is provide volume to areas where you’ve lost it. This makes your face fuller and more youthful.
One of the other things that hyaluronic acid does is stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen. This also helps to make your face look plumper, and smooths out wrinkles and sagging by helping your skin get its structural integrity back. Finally, hyaluronic acid is also known for its ability to retain moisture. This moisture provides your skin with a protective barrier and helps you enjoy your results from the injections for longer.
What Happens When I Get It?
If you’re thinking of getting one of these fillers, then the number one thing you need to do is make sure you’re booking your appointment at a reputable clinic with a trained practitioner. At our clinic, you can trust that your experience will be clean, safe and that our staff will strive to make you feel welcome and comfortable.
Before the Treatment
Like all cosmetic treatments, there are a few things you’ll need to ensure you do before you come in for treatment if you want it to be as safe and effective as possible. However, unlike many other treatments, the list of things you need to do is very short and simple.
You’ll just need to make sure you avoid a few things in the week or so before it’s time for your appointment. Don’t take any medications or supplements that could thin the blood. Don’t take products like aspirin or ibuprofen. You’ll also want to avoid smoking and consuming alcohol the day or two before it’s time for your injection.
During the Treatment
Before our highly-trained technicians begin injecting the product, we will start with a consultation. During this time, we’ll discuss what areas of your face concern you and help you come up with an effective treatment plan. If you have any questions or concerns about the treatment, this is a great opportunity for you to ask them. We will be more than happy to address any questions you might have.
Once the consultation is done, we can prepare for the actual injections. Before we apply the needle, we will carefully clean the skin around the injection sites. Once it’s been cleaned, we may apply a topical or local anesthetic to help make the process as pain-free as possible. Then we will use an extremely fine needle to strategically apply the filler in the desired areas. Generally, the process is extremely quick and should take somewhere between 5 and 30 minutes.
After the Treatment
If you want the results of your treatment to be long-lasting and effective, then there are just a few things you’ll need to be mindful of once your appointment is done. For the next day or so, make sure that you avoid staying out in direct sunlight. You’ll also want to keep from doing any strenuous activity, or anything that might make you sweat excessively.
Aside from that, however, there’s very little you need to do once your treatment is done. You’ll be able to get back to your busy life as soon as you leave our clinic. The fact that it’s non-invasive and requires essentially no recovery time is one of the things that make this particular treatment so desirable.
There are plenty of reasons to get this filler if you’re interested in a cosmetic treatment that will help you look younger and healthier. Here are a few of the many benefits you can expect to receive with this injectable.
There are many different cosmetic treatments available like surgeries and other injectables. However, many of these other options carry a large amount of risk that you may not be comfortable with.
If you’re looking for a safe treatment method that will help you get rid of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging, then this injectable is perfect for you. The product’s main ingredient is something that is naturally found in your skin anyway, and hyaluronic acid helps to stimulate the production of more collagen, a process your body should perform on its own.
No matter what kind of treatment you’re looking at, you want your results to last you a long time. There are many injectables out there that only last for a few months at most, which means frequent trips back to the clinic if you want to maintain your results.
That’s not something you’ll need to worry about if you go with this treatment option. The results from your treatment will be immediately noticeable, and most people are able to enjoy them for anywhere between 6 months to 2 years. Keeping up with your regular skincare routine and a healthy lifestyle will help you keep your results for even longer.
Aging can bring many benefits on its own. With age, you also gain wisdom and experience. But wrinkling, sagging, and fine lines may be an unwanted side effect of this process. These side effects can seriously affect your confidence.
When you receive this injectable, you’ll look younger in a way that appears natural. It will help smooth out those lines and fill in areas where you’ve lost volume, making you look younger and healthier. If you’re self-conscious about the way your skin looks, then this filler is a fantastic way to boost your confidence.
