How to Make Juvederm Last Longer

Ever see celebrities and envied their full cheeks, smooth skin and plump lips? While some of them were graced by having these features naturally, others pay an occasional visit to their dermatologist to receive dermal fillers.

What is a Dermal Filler?

Dermal fillers are a mighty, non-invasive cosmetic treatment that adds fullness and provides hydration to the facial area. Fillers are part of a new generation of injectable treatments that are highly effective, long lasting and subtle. So effective, that one injection can make skin look plumper and sooth and fill fine and deep lines. After only one session you will see dramatic results.

What are Fillers Made Out Of?

Injectables or fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally present in the human body and responsible for that “dewy” and hydrated look, are FDA approved and a favorite at VIDA.

If you decide to enhance your features or soothe your wrinkles, it is likely you don’t want people to know about it. Don’t worry, good fillers are invisible. When expertly injected, fillers look natural and a part of your skin and face. Think of filler-injection as a fine art, you will want a skilled artisan for the job. Don’t fret, our team of dermatologists have extensive expertise on these types of skincare treatments.

With so many options to choose from…which filler is the correct one for you? Take a look at some of the needs you may have and the fillers we apply at our Medi Spa.

Top Reasons for Dermal Fillers:

You want to look your best for a special occasion.

Imagine you have a wedding anniversary or an important photoshoot coming up but fine or expression lines are preventing you from looking your best. You can solve this annoying problem with a shot or two of Botox. Botox reduces fine lines and wrinkles by paralyzing the underlying muscles. Botox is an affordable and easy choice for first-time users that usually lasts for six months. However, zinc supplements can be used to make botox last longer.

You want fuller and plumper lips.

If you wish to have sexy, and natural-looking lips, look no further than Juvéderm Volbella, winner for the Allure Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award, an effective filler that provides subtle volume to the lips while soothing the appearance of vertical lip lines.

Many ask how long does does Juvérderm last? A study conducted with 123 women, showed that the patients were satisfied with the results even after a year of the initial treatment! But, how to make Juvéderm last longer? As with any skin treatment, take care of your skin. Protect it from the sun, keep yourself hydrated and eat your veggies.

You want to look more youthful.

We tend to think that wrinkles are the only sign of age, but we forget that cheeks flatten, and the skin around the area tends to sag. While this loss of volume is natural, it gives the face an older look. Juvéderm Voluma is designed to add volume beneath skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheeks, making patients look five years younger after only five months of treatment! How long does Juvéderm Voluma last?  Well… good news! Juvéderm is the only filler that lasts up to two years!

You want to smooth and plump your fine lines.

Think of Belotero Balance as a finishing touch for your face. Try this filler if you want to correct etched-in lines and wrinkles around your mouth, nose and brows. This powerful treatment will give you a natural and smooth finish to your skin and due to its seamless integration, it becomes a part of you.

You want to contour your features.

Wouldn’t it be great to get a contour treatment that even Kim Kardashian would envy? To immediately lift and contour your chin, jawline and other areas of your face, choose from Radiesse, Belotero Volume and Juvéderm Volift. These powerful fillers provide a volumizing effect that will leave everyone wondering how you look your best every day!

You want to correct deep wrinkles on your face.

Try Belotero Intense, a powerful filler which fills and lifts deep folds and wrinkles. How does it work? An optimal skin support system that fills the spaces between cells while protecting them by retaining water. Think of it as a hydrating cushion for your skin. The best part is that it instantly fills the skin and soothes the wrinkles.
