What Is JUVÉDERM Used for?
At Eternal Dermatology + Aesthetics in Fulton, MD, our practice is led by the renowned Dr. Ife J. Rodney, MD, FAAD, a board-certified dermatologist and dermatopathologist. Drawing from her extensive experience, Dr. Rodney masterfully employs the latest injectables, including JUVÉDERM.
To understand what this treatment is used for, we first need to understand what it is. JUVÉDERM is a family of injectable dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. This gel-like substance helps hydrate and adds volume to your skin. As we age, we lose hyaluronic acid, leading to wrinkles, lines, and volume loss. This treatment steps in to restore this lost volume and smooth out facial wrinkles and folds.
What Can You Use This Treatment For?
Facial Wrinkles and Folds
One of the primary uses of this product is to address facial wrinkles and folds. It is particularly effective for smoothing ‘parentheses lines’ or ‘nasolabial folds,’ which are the creases running from the nose to the corners of the mouth. By injecting the treatment beneath the skin, we can fill in these lines and wrinkles, giving the skin a smoother, more youthful appearance.
This treatment isn’t just used for smoothing wrinkles and folds; it’s also an excellent solution for those looking to enhance their lips. Certain products in the JUVÉDERM family are designed specifically for lip augmentation. They add volume to the lips, define the lip contours, and can smooth vertical lip lines.
Cheek Volume Enhancement
Another common use for this product is cheek volume enhancement. As we age, we can lose volume in the cheeks, leading to a hollow or sagging appearance. Some of products in this line can be used to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area. This provides a subtle, natural-looking lift, helping to restore a more youthful facial profile.
Apart from facial applications, this product can also be used for hand rejuvenation. Age can cause our hands to lose volume, making tendons, veins, and bones more noticeable. These injections can restore lost volume, giving the hands a more youthful, plump appearance.
Additionally, this product can also be used for non-surgical chin augmentation. As with other areas of the face, aging can lead to volume loss in the chin, resulting in a less defined profile. Injecting JUVÉDERM into this area can enhance the chin’s projection, improve the jawline, and restore balance to the facial features.
Combining with Other Treatments
Another unique aspect of this treatment is its compatibility with other cosmetic treatments. For instance, it can be used alongside treatments like BOTOX to provide a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. While JUVÉDERM addresses volume loss and deeper wrinkles, BOTOX can smooth out dynamic wrinkles caused by facial muscle movements, like frown lines or crow’s feet. This combination approach allows us to tailor treatments to each patient’s unique needs and desired outcomes.
Safety and Effectiveness
Given Dr. Rodney’s expertise and the safety profile of this product line, patients can feel confident in their choice to use this dermal filler. This treatment has been FDA-approved for cosmetic use since 2006, and its hyaluronic acid composition mimics a substance naturally found in our skin. Therefore, it has a much lower risk of causing allergic reactions compared to other fillers.
Dr. Rodney will discuss everything detail with you when she reviews your treatment history, medical history, and medication list. The consultation is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions you might have, explore all the options available to you for treatment, and get personalized skincare advice from a professional who specializes in skincare and anti-aging treatments for all skin types.
