JUVÉDERM® Filler

January 30, 2016

When it comes to improving signs of aging and restoring facial contour, Juvederm fillers are a good choice. JUVÉDERM® is widely known as a safe and effective dermal filler that works by retaining Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in the skin. It can restore lost skin volume, plump up your pout, and minimize the appearance of lines and creases.

Other uses of Juvederm fillers in Singapore include:

  • Add volume to the cheeks
  • Augment the chin
  • Fill the lips
  • Improve lines and nasolabial folds
  • Define the chin
  • Increase the height of the nose bridge

The Main Ingredient

Hyaluronic acid (HA) molecules are the main ingredient of Juvederm fillers. The body naturally produces HA, which is responsible for retaining water to keep the tissues moist and well lubricated. HA-based dermal fillers help in replenishing the body’s production of hyaluronic acid, which then restores loss volume and structure.

Juvederm Range of Fillers

There are a number of products in the Juvederm range of fillers. They have different concentrations and bonding of HA, tailored to deal with specific issues when injected into the treatment areas. Here are some of the different types of Juvederm fillers and their uses:

  • Juvederm Voluma – for restoring volume and improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • Juvederm Volbella – for smoothing fine lines and improving lip definition
  • Juvederm Ultra – for plumping up the lips
  • Juvederm Volux – for lower face contouring (more definition to chin and jawline area)
  • Juvederm Volite – a skin booster used  for improving skin’s elasticity and hydration

FAQs

How do Juvederm fillers work?

The fillers are injected under the skin to fill the soft tissue of the dermis. The HA adds volume to the facial tissues, which then reduces the appearance of fine lines and facial folds immediately. The fillers are metabolized by the body and gradually disappear over time.

Are Juvederm fillers safe?

The US FDA has approved HA-based fillers like Juvederm.  These fillers, furthermore, have a good safety profile and provide visible and long-lasting results.

Do dermal fillers hurt?

While it involves the use of needles, most patients find the nonsurgical fillers treatment tolerable. Some Juvederm fillers also contain a small amount of lidocaine, which numbs the area and reduce pain and discomfort. Numbing cream can also be applied before the treatment to improve patient comfort.

How long do the effects of Juvederm last?

This depends on the type of filler used and the treated area. Typically, Juvederm fillers last between 6 and 12 months, or up to two years. Juvederm Voluma fillers, for instance, can last up to 24 months, while Juvederm Volux fillers, can last up to 18 to 24 months. Volbella, on the other hand, lasts for about 12 months.

How much do Juvederm fillers cost?

The cost of Juvederm fillers varies depending on the injector’s experience, number of syringes used, the clinic’s location, and other factors. Here at Cutis Laser Clinics, Juvederm treatments cost between $780 to 1,250, depending on the types of fillers used.

A consultation with our aesthetic doctor will give you a better idea about the cost of nonsurgical filler treatment based on your needs.

Are there any side effects?

You may experience some bruising or swelling at the site of injection, but this is temporary and can last for a couple of days. The treated area may also feel firm or different due to the presence of the filler. It can take about two weeks for the fillers to completely blend with the surrounding tissues.

Be sure to find a reliable dermal filler clinic in Singapore or a skilled and trained injector. Dr. Sylvia Ramirez of Cutis Laser Clinics has an extensive experience with fillers including the use of Juvederm.
