Everything You Need To Know About Juvéderm: A Beginners Guide To Fillers

Let’s fill you in on what Juvéderm can do for you….

There are a lot of options in the cosmetic world to combat the signs of aging. A simple, instant fix with no surgery required is always popular but it can be overwhelming when looking at the scope of helpful procedures out there. Dermal fillers, BOTOX, and other med spa facial treatments are all aimed at making you look younger and refreshed. Let’s face it, as we age, so does our skin. When patients come to our Florham Park, NJ plastic surgery center seeking non-surgical alternatives, dermal fillers are a great place to start. Fillers can add volume to areas of the face where it has been lost, it can help fill deeper lines and wrinkles, enhance the lips, and much more.

There are a number of filler products to choose from, but we make it easy by staying with a few that produce radiant results each and every time. At the Peer Group for Plastic Surgery, we put Juvéderm at the top of the list.

Juvéderm … what it can do for you!

Juvéderm has two important tasks when injected just beneath the skin. One is to fill in static wrinkles to remove them. You might be asking, what are static wrinkles? They are those pesky wrinkles you see all the time! Even when your face is “at rest” these wrinkles or creases are visibly noticeable. The other important task, for Juvéderm, is to increase fullness in areas where skin has lost volume. As we age, our bodies decrease in the amount of hyaluronic acid it produces, which is a natural substance in the body, that aids in our skin having volume or plumpness. Juvéderm is a combination of hyaluronic acids injected back into the skin to “plump” it up and fill in those gaps where skin has lost elasticity. Essentially, Juvéderm can help your skin bounce back and give you a more youthful glow.

Juvéderm can fill in what time has taken away...

Juvéderm “fills in” the areas that need help when the natural process of aging takes its toll. As we age, skin loses elasticity and our facial expressions like laughing or smiling become more permanent reminders leaving wrinkles or lines that “stick around”. Juvéderm can fill in the gaps and smooth out the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles giving patient’s instant results. Some of the most common reasons men and women throughout New Jersey get a Juvéderm injection:

  • To eliminate or reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth or nasolabial folds, which are the lines that extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth; Also called “marionette lines” or laugh lines.

  • To eliminate or reduce the appearance of deeper “Crow’s Feet” around the eyes.

  • To smooth and soften deeper lines on the forehead area and the “11” lines which appear in between the eyebrows. Fillers are used here when BOTOX alone cannot produce improved results.

  • To smooth the appearance of minor scars or blemishes (pitting) from acne.

  • To plump up or add volume to the lips making them more voluptuous instantly! Injections here help reduce fine lines around the lip area or get rid of “lipstick bleed lines”.

  • To add volume to the cheeks in order to lift or contour the cheek area.

  • To help reduce minor nasal bumps or simply straighten out a bent nasal tip. Also known as a non-surgical rhinoplasty, Juvéderm can be used as a non-invasive solution for minor nose irregularities as a temporary adjustment to avoid surgical intervention.

Juvéderm and instant results!

The best benefit of Juvéderm is the results are instant. Those instant results can also last up to 9 months and in some cases even a year! Adding a regular dose of Juvéderm into your skincare routine can ward off cosmetic surgery or other invasive treatments to fight the signs of aging for decades. The procedure is also quick and easy. It can even be done on your lunch hour! Wrinkles and lines will appear smooth and softer before you even leave our New Jersey office.

Juvéderm or BOTOX or both!

Juvéderm and BOTOX are two popular, heavy hitters in the game of fighting the aging process without surgery. At the Peer Group, we often combine these injectables for New Jersey area men and women seeking facial rejuvenation.

BOTOX combats dynamic wrinkles and “relaxes” the muscles that cause lines or wrinkles to form when doing natural, facial expressions like laughing or frowning. BOTOX is most commonly used in the forehead and around the eyes and can last for about 3-4 months. Juvéderm can be a treatment that compliments your BOTOX results serving to fill in deeper lines that exist on the lower face or even in the upper face where BOTOX can’t do the trick (the number “11’s” is the most popular area for filler in the forehead). While these two injectable treatments are different and used for different reasons, they work great together to create a softer, smoother, younger appearance significantly reducing the look of lines and wrinkles.

We know that the filler market can seem overwhelming. Our goal during your consultation is to explain the difference between the most commonly used ones and specifically, how Juvéderm can be the solution to help you fight the signs of aging and get you looking younger again. Juvéderm has different variations or types that contain different strengths depending on your skin needs. To learn more, we invite you to call the Peer Group in Florham Park, NJ. We will get you set up with the right combination so you can “fill in” those pesky wrinkles so that your outside looks as young as you feel on the inside!
