It’s normal for your skin to change over time. It certainly doesn’t look or feel the way it did when you were a child. But many of these changes, like wrinkles, sagging, and fine lines can lower your confidence significantly. If you want to look younger and healthier, then our Juvederm injections at Mia Bella Donna Medspa in Overland Park, KS could work for you.
What Are the Different Types of Juvederm?
Are you feeling self-conscious about the appearance of wrinkles, folds, and fine lines on your face? A dermal filler could be the perfect solution for you. Juvederm is an incredibly effective way to treat these common signs of aging and offer you a more youthful appearance.
There are several different types of this filler. When you decide to get this injectable, depending on the results you want one or more types will be injected into your skin. No matter which kind you receive, you can trust that you’re getting a safe, fast-acting, and natural-looking solution to your wrinkles.
When you’re young, you have a lot of volume in your face. This is, in part, what makes you look so healthy and youthful. But as you age, you’ll notice that you lose a significant amount of volume in your face, making you look older than you actually are.
Voluma XC is specifically designed to put the volume back into your face. It targets the cheeks, which are often the first place to lose volume. By filling in the area, you’ll have more defined cheeks, and the skin in the area that has begun to sag will be pulled back up for a tighter, more supple look.
XC and Vollure XC
Wrinkles tend to appear sooner and deeper around areas that move around a lot. Throughout the day, your mouth moves as you speak, smile, frown, and eat. This means that it’s an area where many wrinkles tend to show up.
If you’re finding yourself with undesirable wrinkles in the mouth area, then XC or Vollure XC could be the perfect solution. Both of these fillers are designed to fill in and smooth out wrinkles that have appeared around the mouth and nose area.
Ultra XC and Volbella XC
Some people are born with naturally thin lips. Other people, however, lose volume in the lip area as the rest of the face loses volume as well. Thin lips are often considered undesirable. They can make you look more serious and older, which can make you feel pretty self-conscious.
Ultra XC and Volbella XC both offer an effective solution to thin lips. Designed to help fill in the lip area, when you receive these injections you’ll get fuller, plumper lips that will help you look more youthful.
Everything You Need To Know About Juvederm
If you’re interested in getting this treatment, then you’re probably wondering what exactly it is and how it works. Here’s everything you need to know about this effective and safe filler.
Why Do We Get Wrinkles?
Before we can get into how the filler works, we need to learn more about why wrinkles and sagging happen in the first place. Your skin is made up of a variety of chemicals, including the proteins collagen and elastic. These are important components of your skin for a few reasons. First, they help to give your skin its structure. Second, they allow your skin to remain elastic and smooth out when the muscles underneath are relaxed.
Your skin also has something called hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally occurring sugar that provides hydration, volume, and lubrication to your skin. As you get older, the amounts of these chemicals get lower. This makes your skin weaker, unable to maintain its shape, and will make your face less voluminous.
What Is Juvederm?
This is a collection of dermal fillers that are applied with the help of a very fine and precise needle. When you receive these injections, the technician applying them will strategically apply small amounts at a time to the desired parts of the face.
These fillers are made with hyaluronic acid. It offers you a very effective and safe way of both smoothing out wrinkles that have appeared on your face and providing your face with more volume overall.
How Does It Work?
When it’s injected into the skin, the hyaluronic acid that these fillers contain does a few different things. First, it puts volume back into the skin. This will lift sagging skin, smoothing out wrinkles and making your skin look fuller and more youthful. Hyaluronic acid is also known for its ability to draw in and retain moisture. This helps to keep your skin hydrated, which can be difficult as you get older. It will also help maintain the volume that’s been added, allowing you to enjoy your results for longer.
One of the other important things that hyaluronic acid does is stimulate your skin’s production of collagen. This helps your skin maintain its firmness and suppleness.
What Is the Process Like?
When it comes to receiving this treatment, the most important thing you need to do is find the right clinic. Look for a licensed practitioner to apply the product. At our clinic, you’ll also find a super welcoming and comfortable environment where you’ll feel safe receiving your treatment.
How to Prepare
Before coming in for your appointment, there are a few things you’ll need to make sure of. But don’t worry, there won’t be a lengthy to-do list that you need to follow. Rather, in the week leading up to your appointment, you’ll just want to avoid a few things. This is to make the treatment as effective as possible and to prevent potential bruising from the needle.
Make sure that you stop taking any medications or supplements that can act as blood thinners. This includes aspirin, ibuprofen, and supplements like St. John’s wort and fish oil. You should also make sure not to consume any alcohol and to stop smoking in the days leading up to your appointment.
The Day of Your Appointment
Before we can begin with the injections, we’ll start with a consultation. This is a really important part of the treatment process for a few reasons. It allows us to determine what areas you would like treated and gives us the chance to address any questions or concerns that you might have about the process.
When the consultation is done, we can set you up with your appointment. We’ll do everything we can to make your experience relaxed and comfortable. First, we’ll start by thoroughly cleaning the skin where the injections will be applied. Once the skin is clean, we may apply a small amount of numbing cream to make the treatment even more comfortable for you. Then, our technicians will use a very fine needle to apply the injections. Multiple will likely be required, with a small amount being injected at a time. The entire process is quick and should take somewhere between 15 minutes to an hour.
After Your Appointment
One of the best parts of getting a non-invasive treatment like this one is that recovery time afterward is minimal. While surgical procedures will require weeks of uncomfortable and even painful recovery after the treatment is done, you’ll be able to get right back to work as soon as your Juvederm appointment is done.
If you want to ensure that your treatment is as effective as possible and the product settles into your skin correctly, you’ll need to avoid a few things. Over the next few days, try to avoid direct sunlight as much as possible. You’ll also want to stop performing any strenuous activity, and avoid anything that will make you sweat excessively. Otherwise, you can get right back your daily activities as soon as you leave the clinic.
Is It Safe?
If you’re looking for an anti-wrinkle solution that’s as risk-free as possible, then this dermal filler is for you. There are many treatment options available, but things like surgical procedures can involve quite a lot of risk. Many other injectables contain ingredients that you may not feel safe or comfortable injecting into your skin.
But this collection of fillers’ main ingredient is hyaluronic acid. This sugar is naturally found in several parts of your body, including your skin, eyes, and connective tissues. Plus, it stimulates the production of collagen, something your body does on its own anyway. The filler only makes this process more effective.
When Will I See Results?
As soon as you leave the clinic, you’ll notice a difference in your appearance. The hyaluronic acid that’s been applied to your force works right away by putting more volume into the desired areas.
Results will become even more apparent over the coming weeks. If you’re looking for something that’s going to work quickly, then this is the perfect treatment option for you.
How Long Do Results Last?
No matter what type of treatment you’re looking for, you want your results to last you a long time. All fillers will require that you need to come back for follow-up injections if you want to maintain your results. But one of the best things about this treatment is that the results will last you a long time.
There are a few factors that contribute to how long your results last. This includes the type of Juvederm you’ve received, as well as how well you care for your skin afterward. Most people can enjoy their results for 6 months to two years.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Because this filler is made with natural ingredients and offers a safe and effective way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, almost anyone can be a good candidate to receive this treatment. If you feel self-conscious about the wrinkles and fine lines that have shown up on various parts of the face, you could be a good candidate.
It’s also a great option for anyone who is looking to add more volume back into your face that they may have lost with age. This will offer a fuller, younger look.
