Dermal Fillers – Juvederm
Juvederm fillers are composed of a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration to your skin. When injected under the skin, it instantly restores your skin’s volume and smooths away facial wrinkles and folds. The injection process takes only about 15 minutes and results are immediate.
Juvederm fillers are generally well tolerated. There is minimal recovery or downtime. In addition, most side effects are mild to moderate in nature, lasting 7 days or less. As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection. Most common side effects include, but are not limited to, temporary injection site reactions such as redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching and discoloration.
Juvederm is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal fillers proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.
Volbella XC is the first and only filler proven to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of vertical lip lines for up to 1 year. Dr. Carranza offers Volbella XC in both half syringes and full syringes.
Vollure XC is the first and only filler proven to last up to 18 months in moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Aging, genetics, and environmental factors like sun exposure can cause lower facial lines to become more visible. Vollure XC subtly smooths these lines to deliver results that last.
Voluma XC is the first and only filler proven to last up to 2 years in the cheek area. Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, volume loss can cause the cheeks to flatten and the skin to sag. Voluma XC is designed to add volume to lift and contour the cheek area.
Juvederm XC is proven to last up to 1 year in moderate to severe facial wrinkles and lines. Over time, your skin loses elasticity. This natural process, plus genetics and environmental factors like sun exposure, can cause moderate to severe facial lines and folds to form. For example, parentheses, corner and marionette lines around the nose and mouth. Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC can help fill these lines and give you natural-looking results that last.
With any cosmetic treatment, safety is the first concern, so it is always important to consult with your doctor before deciding on a wrinkle treatment.
