Juvéderm Q & A
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is the top brand of dermal filler in the world, and for impressive reasons. Juvéderm’s injectable products are smooth and consistent. Their main ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a substance that your body produces naturally to hold hydration and volume in your skin.
As you age, you don’t produce as much hyaluronic acid. Juvéderm injections help to smooth your wrinkles and lines, plump your lips and cheeks, and correct sagging skin.
The team at MUG is skilled in placing Juvéderm injections so that they create results that look natural. After your injections, you enjoy a more youthful look for up to one or even two years.
What are the types of Juvéderm products?
Dr. Mug offers a variety of Juvéderm products to help you reach your goals.
Juvéderm Ultra specializes in treating thin or delicate facial lines like those around your eyes and lips.
Juvéderm Ultra Plus
The thicker version of Juvéderm Ultra, Juvéderm Ultra Plus is better suited for deep wrinkles and lines like smile lines or nasolabial folds.
Juvéderm Voluma specializes in adding volume as well as a lifting effect to your cheeks and under your eyes. While this is its primary purpose, it often results in diminished smile lines and marionette lines, too.
Juvéderm Volbella is the go-to specialty filler for lips. Plump lips can enhance anyone’s look and draw attention away from wrinkles around your mouth.
If your Juvéderm product reads ‘XC’ after its name, this means that it contains a small amount of lidocaine to numb the area as it works. If it doesn’t, Dr. Mug provides you with another numbing option.
How should I prepare for my upcoming Juvéderm injections?
Dr. Mug forms a treatment plan using Juvéderm and gives you suggestions for how to prepare. You should:
- Stop taking anti-inflammatory medications
- Stop smoking
- Avoid alcoholic beverages
- Stop tanning
You might need to take additional preparation steps depending on the state of your health and medications you take. Taking these steps ensures that you have minimal chances of complications from your injections and a smooth, quick recovery.
