Juvederm is a family of hyaluronic acid fillers, designed to improve texture and add volume to areas of the face impacted by aging. Dr. Jayesh Panchal is pleased to offer products from the Juvederm line at our OKC area offices. If you are considering nonsurgical facial rejuvenation, give us a call at 405-310-6767 to schedule a consultation today.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is naturally produced by the body and is found primarily in the skin and connective tissue. One of HA’s job is to hold moisture and prevent its evaporation. As a result, HA helps us retain a smooth and youthful complexion.

As we age, our production of HA slows, reducing our skin’s ability to retain moisture and allowing the skin to sink, shrivel, wrinkle, and fold. When this occurs, putting HA on the outside of the skin may produce only limited results. Injecting HA into the skin, on the other hand, allows the substance to build back up and begin plumping and smoothing the skin from the inside out.

Juvederm and similar dermal fillers restore levels of hyaluronic acid to eliminate fine lines, deep wrinkles, and sagging skin that can produce a more aged and unattractive look. During your initial consultation, we can answer any questions you may have about active dermal filler ingredients to make sure you are choosing the best solution for your needs.

What can Juvederm Treat?

There are different Juvederm formulations designed to address different problem areas throughout the face. Options include:

  • Voluma XC is designed to address volume loss in the cheeks. With this filler, lift and contour are restored to the midface, producing a look up to five years younger that can last for up to two years
  • Ultra XC is used to add volume to lips that are flat or ill-defined. Ultra XC can last for up to one year before touch-ups are needed
  • Volbella XC is used to add volume and definition to the lips and to address vertical lip lines. A majority of patients report both effects last for 12 months or more
  • XC and Vollure XC are both designed to reduce the appearance of parenthesis lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Juvederm XC can produce results for up to one year with Vollure offering results for 18 months or more

There are a number of different types of fillers, some of which use ingredients like calcium hydroxyapatite, bovine collagen, and poly methyl methacrylate microspheres to add volume. Dr. Panchal will carefully review your problem areas and discuss all of your options to make sure you are choosing the best option for your needs.
