Juvederm New Orleans
Juvederm is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid facial filler that immediately restores lost volume to fine lines, wrinkles and depressed areas of the skin – results in a well-rested, more youthful complexion. The Juvederm collection of fillers is made from hyaluronic acid (HA). What’s interesting about HA is that it’s a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume. Each product in the Juvederm collection of fillers is made from a modified form of HA.
LIFT & CONTOUR CHEEKS WITH JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC
Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. Juvederm Voluma XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area to help create a more youthful appearance.
SMOOTH PARENTHESES LINES & WRINKLES WITH JUVEDERM VOLLURE XC
Over time, your skin loses elasticity, which contributes to moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. While serums and creams work on the skin’s surface, Juvederm XC and Juvederm Vollure XC add volume to smooth these lines and folds, to help give you the subtle, long-lasting results you want.
THE JUVEDERM LIP COLLECTION
Some people simply have naturally thin lips and just want to achieve a fuller appearance. Other people have noticed their lips thinning over time and may also have seen vertical lip lines become more noticeable. Whatever your unique needs are when it comes to your lips, the Juvederm collection may be able to help.
The Juvederm collection offers two formulations for the lips:
Juvederm Ultra XC adds more fullness and plumps thin lips-whether your lips have thinned over time or you simply want fuller lips.
Juvederm Volbella XC is the most recent addition to the collection-tailored to add subtle volume to the lips and smooth the appearance of vertical lip lines.
WHAT ARE JUVEDERM TREATMENTS LIKE?
Juvederm is formulated with lidocaine for enhanced comforted during treatment. Using an ultra-fine needle, the filler is injected just below the surface of the skin to plump the depressed areas. Typically, a Juvederm treatment takes less than one hour, and most people feel comfortable going back to their normal activities immediately.
Dr. Pelias’ office uses a topical skin anesthetic to make you comfortable during the injections. The cream is applied and sits on the skin for 20-30 minutes prior to your injection. We also give patients a cold pack after the treatment to reduce any discomfort and possible swelling.
WHAT WILL I LOOK LIKE AFTER MY FILLER TREATMENT?
Most of our patients put their make-up on and go right back to normal activities. If you’ve remembered the no aspirin, Excedrin, Advil, Ibuprofen, Aleve rule, then you should have very little bruising after your treatment. A small amount of puffiness or mild swelling for a day or two is normal.
There is a small group of patients who really puff after treatments, especially in the lips. Bruises on the lips are usually easy to cover with lipstick.
DO I NEED TO COME FOR REPEAT OR MAINTENANCE TREATMENTS?
Yes. All of these dermal fillers require maintenance 1-4 times a year depending on which filler, the area injected, and your own particular body chemistry.
