Your nasolabial folds, marionette lines, thin lips, and loss of volume in your face are making you look older than you feel. The aesthetic professionals at Midtown Dental Care in Manhattan, New York, use the JUVÉDERM® family of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers to rejuvenate your face. They can even create a non-surgical liquid facelift. If you’re tired of looking tired and live in the Greater New York area — including Queens, Rego Park, Manhattan, and New York City — find out more about JUVÉDERM by calling Midtown Dental Care or booking an appointment online.
JUVÉDERM is an injectable dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that’s found naturally in your body. Hyaluronic acid keeps your skin moisturized and your joints lubricated. However, HA decreases as you age, which is why your skin starts to look thinner and drier and begins developing wrinkles.
When your aesthetic professional at Midtown Dental Care injects JUVÉDERM into a crease or wrinkle, such as a nasolabial fold, the HA binds with water molecules in the skin. The extra volume from the HA expands the skin, thus filling in the wrinkle.
JUVÉDERM’s effects are instant. You may have a little swelling or redness from the injection for a few hours up to a few days, but you should see an improvement in your wrinkles once the swelling subsides.
JUVÉDERM has many different formulations to treat various types of volume loss in the face.
VOLUMA XC is thicker than JUVÉDERM and so can’t be used on the lips. VOLUMA XC is injected more deeply into the skin than JUVÉDERM and therefore stimulates the skin to produce more rejuvenating collagen.
VOLBELLA has a thin, silky consistency that makes it perfect for a natural-looking lip augmentation that also feels soft, appealing, and more full.
The JUVÉDERM products contain the numbing agent lidocaine, which makes the injections more comfortable. You may feel a slight prick of the needle. After your treatment, you may be a little sore or swollen for a few hours.
Each formulation varies in longevity. JUVÉDERM can last up to a year. You will probably need half of your original dose to get the same results on your follow-up visit. VOLUMA XC can last for two years or more. VOLBELLA lasts about 18 months.
