Juvederm is one of the most sought-after FDA approved aesthetic filler injectables designed to reduce the appearance of facial aging lines without cosmetic surgery. The relatively higher longevity of the procedure is a key reason behind its popularity.
The treatment provider will inform the patient about all facets of the Juvederm filler procedure, including the longevity of results.
The first concern of the provider will be to inform the patient about various aspects of the Juvederm filler treatment and assist them in making a well-informed choice from the various options available. Fantastic and considerate facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian provides Juvederm filler treatment to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding locations in this region of SoCal.
Long-term Effectiveness with Vycross Technology
Juvederm injectable filler has been developed using the cutting-edge Vycross technology that provides for the cross linking of the gel’s molecules. This robust cross linking prevents the early disintegration of the gel, which produces more sustainable results. A single injection treatment session of Juverderm can deliver results effective for up to 12 months, which is more than several other comparable fillers.
Despite the fact that various soft tissue fillers include the same ingredients as Juvederm, they do not last as long because their molecules are not linked with Vycross technique. The non-cross linked nature of other gels causes quicker disintegration. However, the strongly linked Juvederm gel will provide more sustainability to the treated areas under the skin.
Higher Concentration of HA
The main ingredient in Juvederm is hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a biological compound already present in the body. HA performs the function of keeping the skin structure together. With age, the amount of HA in the body is reduced, which causes a loss of skin volume and elasticity. Juvederm provides a higher concentration of HA than other fillers, which make the results more long-lasting.
Furthermore, HA is advantageous because the body will not repel it as an alien object. This enables the gel to remain in the deeper layers of the skin for a longer time, and produces longer lasting anti-aging outcomes. Results are better than collagen based injections, which include animal products in their composition.
The animal-based collagen is identified and rejected by the body as an alien substance. Hence, these gels break down faster, unlike the Juvederm facial filler.
The results of the Juverderm facial filler can last for up to a year, even a little more in certain cases. The facial areas with greater muscle movement may be unable to support the sustainability of the results for longer periods.
For instance, the lines and wrinkles around the face may not experience results that are as long lasting as other areas due to the higher movement of muscles in this region.
Additionally, the depth of the wrinkles and intensity of skin laxity will differ between patients. Overall, the results of the Juvederm gel will decrease slowly, and the entire gel would not wear off at one time.
