Juvederm XC is an FDA approved filler material. It has the consistency of smooth gel and is clear in color. There are two different volumizing gels that Juvederm makes. Juvederm Ultra Plus, which is the thicker of the two, and Juvederm Ultra, which is a bit thinner. Thickness is very important when choosing the appropriate filler because depending on the area; the results can make a dramatic difference.
Juvederm Ultra and Ultra plus work beautifully in the lips, marionette lines, smile lines as well as deep frown lines in between the brows that Botox and Dysport can’t remedy. The gel is also formulated with Lidocaine, an anesthetic that aids in pain management alone with the topical lidocaine applied in the office. Your procedure will be virtually painless and the use of fillers can dramatically improve facial symmetry, fullness as well as enhance features and get rid of fine lines and wrinkles. Depending on the area, Juvederm can last as long as nine to twelve months. In the lips it lasts six to nine months due to the lip area being more active than the others.
How is Juvederm injected?
Dr. Mashhadian has taken the opportunity to be trained in the Cannula method. Rather than using the sharp tip of the needle and tearing tissue fibers and blood vessels which can cause bruising, one small hole is creates with the needle, and then the blunt tip cannula is used to inject the material under the skin. This immensely reduces pain, swelling and bruising and makes for much more quick recovery which means faster results!
