What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a family of injectable dermal filler products. Dr. Emer uses Juvederm to sculpt aesthetic facial contours and to reverse visible signs of aging caused by a decline in the body’s natural production of hyaluronic acid. The Juvederm family includes:

  • Juvederm Voluma
  • Juvederm Volbella
  • Juvederm Vollure
  • Juvederm Ultra
  • Juvederm Ultra Plus

While each Juvederm filler has distinct properties, each contains hyaluronic acid within an extremely smooth gel that is formulated to optimize delivery via injections. After injection at the treatment sites, the product immediately begins to draw moisture into your skin to hydrate and plump the area.

In addition to hyaluronic acid, the gel contains lidocaine. Lidocaine is a numbing agent which helps to minimize discomfort during the injections.

Dr. Emer is internationally recognized as a facial sculpting expert and works with an array of dermal fillers, including Juvederm, to deliver unparalleled results. In your consultation, Dr. Emer will evaluate your facial structure and tissues and learn about your desired outcomes in order to determine the optimal facial sculpting treatment for you.

Procedure Details

How Does Juvederm Work?

Before looking in-depth at Juvederm, it is helpful to understand the causes of facial aging as it relates to treatment with dermal fillers. Your skin contains certain substances like hyaluronic acid that tend to decline in both quantity and quality as you grow older. The purpose of hyaluronic acid (HA) in your skin is to create hydration.

As you grow older and your natural production of hyaluronic acid decreases, your skin will become thinner and drier. Think of a dry riverbed. The dryer it gets, the more cracks develop on the surface. Wrinkles are cracks that become creases and folds over time. That is where Juvederm comes in.

After years of exhaustive research, doctors discovered that hyaluronic acid makes an excellent filler ingredient for sensitive areas such as the lips and throughout the face. The gel-like serum in HA-based Juvederm injections immediately adds volume, which can enhance facial features and smooth out wrinkles and lines.

Every Juvederm filler is hyaluronic acid-based to provide optimal volume restoration and to promote healthy, hydrated skin. Dr. Emer is able to achieve remarkable improvements with Juvederm due to his refined microdroplet technique, vast experience, and his advanced understanding of how each type of Juvederm filler works.

Juvederm Voluma

As you grow older, your skin may begin to sag, and your cheeks may flatten. This can be a result of volume loss in your cheek area. Patients who are very athletic are also prone to hollow-looking cheeks. The Voluma product was specifically formulated to create volume under the surface of your skin to contour and lift the cheek area for up to 24 months.

Juvederm Volbella

Juvederm Volbella is one of the most effective products for lip enhancement. Dr. Emer often performs Volbella injections for patients who want to increase the size of their lips to improve facial harmony and/or achieve a specific lip shape.

Volbella injections are also popular among patients who are struggling with fine lines around the lips. Increasing the size of the lips can help to reduce the appearance of perioral lines to create a more youthful look. Juvederm Volbella can smooth lip lines and augment lips for up to 12 months.

In addition to plumping the lips and erasing lines around the mouth, Dr. Emer can use Volbella to treat other delicate areas. For some patients, Volbella is a good option for filling under-eye hollows and/or minimizing chest wrinkles.

Juvederm Vollure

If you are concerned about moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles like “parentheses lines” around your mouth and nose, Dr. Emer may recommend Vollure injections. Vollure can temporarily correct these deeper wrinkles to restore a more youthful and smooth facial appearance for up to 18 months.

Juvederm Ultra

Juvederm Ultra has a thin, smooth consistency that makes it a great option for filling minor wrinkles and treating minimal volume loss. Dr. Emer may recommend Juvederm Ultra for patients who desire subtle lip augmentation as well. Juvederm Ultra results can last from six to nine months.

Juvederm Ultra Plus

Juvederm Ultra Plus is a thicker version of Juvederm Ultra that can treat deeper lines and achieve considerable volumization. Dr. Emer often uses Juvederm Ultra Plus to restore lost volume in the temples to complement eyebrow and forehead filler treatments. Juvederm Ultra Plus can also be used for lip augmentation for patients who desire a more significant increase in volume. Juvederm Ultra Plus results can last from six months to a year.

What to Expect During a Juvederm Treatment

Dr. Emer performs Juvederm injections at his state-of-the-art medical practice in West Hollywood. Juvederm procedures can take as little as 15 minutes or up to one hour, depending on your specific treatment area(s).

To start, Dr. Emer will identify the best injection sites for your facial sculpting needs. Dr. Emer’s expertise in cosmetic dermatology and his innate artistic sense guide his selection of the optimal injection sites to achieve your desired look.

Once the sites are located and marked, Dr. Emer will inject a precise amount of Juvederm. Since Juvederm fillers contain lidocaine, most patients tolerate the injections with ease. After the injections, Dr. Emer gently massages the filler to ensure smooth, aesthetic results.

What to Expect After Juvederm

As with any treatment, Dr. Emer provides patient-tailored aftercare instructions. To promote optimal results, Dr. Emer often recommends that patients abstain from intense exercise, alcohol consumption, and sun exposure for 24 hours after the injections. He may also advise you not to wear makeup or use certain skincare products immediately after treatment. While some tenderness, redness, and swelling can occur in the first 72 hours after Juvederm injections, there is no significant recovery period associated with this treatment.

The Dr. Emer Difference

How Does Dr. Emer Do Juvederm Differently?

When it comes to facial sculpting, Dr. Emer takes a holistic approach in order to achieve the natural-looking, aesthetic results that have earned him international acclaim. He understands the importance of balance and harmony among facial features. As a result, his facial sculpting treatments often address multiple areas of the face and include strategic combinations of procedures.

Depending on your unique anatomy and treatment goals, he may combine Juvederm injections with:

Neuromodulators

Injectable neuromodulators like Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, and Jeuveau can “freeze” muscles to visibly reduce facial wrinkles and folds.

Thread lifting

To provide a non-surgical facelift, boost collagen production, and enhance Juvederm facial sculpting results, Dr. Emer can use NovaThreads and/or Silhouette InstaLift thread lifting

Thermage

Thermage is a non-invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to prevent sagging skin and provide a skin tightening effect. Regular Thermage and Juvederm treatments can help you prevent and minimize signs of aging.

Microneedling RF

Devices that combine RF energy and microneedling work to tighten and resurface the skin. Microneedling RF can reduce the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, and mild skin laxity to complement your Juvederm results.

Ultherapy

This ultrasound energy-based skin rejuvenation treatment can minimize wrinkles and tighten skin.

Sculptra

Sculptra is a unique dermal filler made of poly-L-lactic acid. In addition to being an effective method of volume restoration, Sculptra can enhance Juvederm results by stimulating collagen production.

Juvederm Results

Some patients experience noticeable improvements immediately after Juvederm injections. In other cases, it may take between three to fourteen days for swelling to completely subside and your final results to be visible.

Depending on your metabolism, the type of Juvederm filler used, and the treatment area, results can last from six months to 24 months before retreatment is needed. As part of your facial sculpting treatment plan, Dr. Emer will recommend collagen-stimulating treatments and other complementary procedures that can help you maintain your ideal facial profile.

How Much Does Juvederm Cost?

The price of your Juvederm treatment will be unique to you. Dr. Emer is meticulous about creating highly specific, targeted treatment plans for each individual patient. The cost of Juvederm injections varies based on the number of treatment areas and the dosage required to achieve your desired outcome.
