If you’re not happy with the way your lips look, then getting a dermal filler might be the solution you need. At H-MD Medical Spa in Oklahoma City, OK, our Juvederm Volbella injections will provide you with safe and long-lasting results.
How Long Does Juvederm Volbella Last?
Do you have thin lips? Or maybe you have asymmetrical lips or lack definition. Whatever the issue is, your lips have a huge effect on the rest of your appearance. If you’re looking for lips that look full and youthful, then you might want to consider getting Juvederm Volbella.
This filler is part of the Juvederm lineup, a collection of hyaluronic acid-based injectables designed to provide fullness and youthfulness to various parts of your face. If you’re looking for a safe, long-lasting way to help your lips look fuller and more defined, this could be the solution for you. While many dermal fillers last only months, this Juvederm product is designed to last for up to a year.
What Is Juvederm, Exactly?
If you’re thinking of getting this injectable, then you might be wondering what it is and how it works. This filler is part of the Juvederm lineup, which all use hyaluronic acid, a sugar naturally present in your body, as their main ingredient.
This particular injectable is made to target your lips. When you get this treatment, you’ll be left with fuller, more defined lips that will help your overall appearance seem much younger.
What Does Hyaluronic Acid Do?
Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that you can already find in various parts of your body. This includes your eyes, your skin, and your connective tissues. This sugar serves a few different roles. First, it helps to provide fullness to your skin by attracting moisture and attaching itself to moisture molecules.
Another important role that hyaluronic acid serves is stimulating the production of collagen. Collagen is a protein that helps provide your skin with its structural integrity as well as its elasticity. By making your body produce more collagen, Juvederm promotes healthy, firm, and youthful skin.
What Are the Other Kinds of Juvederm?
Juvederm Volbella is specifically designed to target your lips, adding in fullness and more definition. When you get this dermal filler, you’ll get much younger-looking lips that will help your overall appearance seem more youthful.
However, if you have other aging concerns related to your skin, then you might receive one or more additional types of Juvederm. All Juvederm products are designed to target specific areas of the face. Here’s a quick look at what these dermal fillers can offer you.
One of the major side effects of aging is a loss of your skin’s elasticity. When you’re young, you have high levels of proteins like collagen and elastin in your skin. These proteins are what keep your skin smooth and free of wrinkles. But the older you get, the less able your body is to produce them, and your skin will begin to wrinkle and sag.
This tends to be pretty obvious around areas that move around a lot, like the nose and mouth area. You may have noticed vertical lines appearing in between your nose and mouth. These lines are called nasolabial folds, smile lines, or laugh lines. If you don’t like the way these lines make you look, then getting Juvederm Vollure injections can help you get the youthful appearance you’ve been missing.
A loss of volume as you get older will occur all over your face. However, there are some places where this volume loss might be more noticeable than others. One place where you’re likely to notice a major change in volume is your cheek area. As you lose amounts of hyaluronic acid and collagen, your cheeks will appear thinner. This can also result in jowl forming as the skin begins to sag.
Volume is designed to put the volume back into your cheeks. When you get this injectable, your cheeks will look fuller and more defined, helping your overall appearance seem younger. It will also lift sagging skin and prevent the formation of jowls.
What Is Treatment Like?
If you’re thinking of getting this injectable, then you might be wondering what the treatment process is like. When you trust our team to provide you with this treatment, we’ll take that seriously. You can count on your treatment process being safe and effective.
Here’s a look at what you can expect from your time with us.
Before it’s time to receive your injections, there are a few things we’ll need to go over. The first thing we’ll do is sit down with you for a consultation. This will allow us to discuss what your specific concerns are and how Juvederm Volbella, or any of the other Juvederm products, might be able to benefit you.
During your consultation, you can also ask any questions that you might have about your treatment. We’ll take a look at your medical history to make sure that this is the best and safest option for your aging concerns.
Preparing for Treatment
Once we set your injection appointment, we’ll also provide you with instructions on how you should prepare for your injections. These instructions will be easy to follow, and it’s important that you do follow them to make sure that your treatment is both safe and as effective as it can be.
During the week leading up to your appointment, we’ll ask that you avoid certain medications like aspirin and ibuprofen, as taking these can thin your blood and cause bruising around the injection sites. We’ll also ask that for the day or two before your appointment you do not consume any alcohol or tobacco.
When your appointment comes, we’ll do everything we can to keep the entire process as comfortable as possible for you. We’ll start by taking the time to carefully clean the areas where you’ll be receiving your injections. We can also apply a small amount of topical numbing cream to the area.
Once your skin is ready, our experienced and highly trained technicians will begin applying the product to your desired areas. We will use multiple strategic injections to make sure your results are natural-looking. The entire treatment process should less than an hour to complete.
After your treatment is complete, you’ll be able to leave our clinic right away. As long as you are careful to follow our instructions once you leave our clinic, you can expect effective and long-lasting results for your lips. We’ll provide you with full instructions when you leave our clinic.
Make sure that you are not performing any strenuous physical activity, or that you are doing anything that could make you sweat excessively. You’ll also need to stay out of direct sunlight. For the next couple of days, keep avoiding alcohol and tobacco.
Will My Results Be Natural?
If you’re concerned about your results from this treatment looking fake, you don’t need to be. As long as you visit qualified practitioners, like those at our clinic, you can expect your results to appear completely natural.
Your lips will look noticeably fuller and more defined without looking fake.
When Will I See My Results?
Regardless of the type of cosmetic treatment you’re considering, finding one that will offer you fast results is probably important to you. One of the best things about this dermal filler is how fast-acting it is.
Immediately upon leaving our clinic, you’ll notice a change in the way your skin looks and feels. This change will continue to become more obvious over the next few days.
Is It Safe?
Safety is many people’s primary concern when it comes to treatment like this, and for good reason. There are lots of treatment options out there, but they may not all be safe for everyone.
One of the major benefits of getting any Juvederm product is that you’ll get effective results that are also safe. This product’s main ingredient is something you can find in your skin regardless, and it stimulates your body’s production of collagen, something your body performs naturally.
