Juvederm®

Juvederm dermal filler

Juvederm®

Dermal fillers are non-invasive, injection treatments that require very little downtime and cause minimal discomfort. Juvederm® is a range of injectable dermal fillers – each formulated to target specific conditions. Because each filler is slightly different, please consult each treatment page for specifics about results timelines and aftercare.

Juvederm ® Volbella ®

Lip Augmentation

If you are looking for Vancouver Juvederm lip augmentation treatments, Anti-Aging Medical & Laser Clinic offers Juvederm ® Volbella ® injectable filler treatments. Volbella is used specifically to enhance the lips, creating volume and defining the lip borders. If you want fuller, well-defined, and more youthful looking lips without the costs and risks associated with surgery, Volbella is an effective alternative that is clinically proven to last up to 1 year.

(Results vary by individual patient and results cannot be guaranteed)

What is Juvederm ® Volbella ®?

Juvederm Volbella is made from HA – hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring sugar found in our bodies. HA helps skin tissue retain moisture and plumpness, but, as we age the amount of HA our bodies produce diminishes, resulting in dehydration, sagging and volume loss. Juvederm Volbella is a thin, smooth gel filler that mimics the smooth, supple appearance of lips. Volbella contains a lower concentration of HA to minimize swelling and contains lidocaine to make the treatment more comfortable.

In a 12-month prospective study on Juvederm Volbella lip augmentation, patients were assessed at 1, 3, 6, 9, and 12 months post-treatment. 78% reported that they still had lip fullness improvement at month 9 and 43% still noticed improvement at month 12. 98.3% of subjects reported that their lip fullness goal had been achieved and maintained – 86.4% at month 9, and 56.9% at month 12.

Juvederm Volbella contraindications

Patients with a history of severe allergic reactions or anaphylaxis, multiple severe allergies, an allergy to lidocaine, or allergies to Gram-positive bacterial proteins should not have Juvederm injections.  All injectable filler treatments should be avoided if you are pregnant or think you might be pregnant.

What happens during the treatment?

When you arrive, a technician will take “before” photos. You’ll have a thorough consultation and a treatment plan will be developed. Numbing cream is applied to the treatment areas and allowed 10-20 minutes to take effect. Immediately before each Juvederm injection, the injection site will be further numbed with an ice pack, making your treatment as comfortable as possible. Throughout the treatment, you’ll be able the check the progress of the lip enhancement so you can decide whether you’d like to stop or continue.

Treatment time: Approximately 1 hour, depending on how many areas are being treated.

After the treatment

Immediately after treatment, and for the first 48 hours (while the filler is still pliable) you may use moisturizer to massage any visible lumps smooth.

  • Try not to sleep on your face for 48 hours as the filler is still pliable and can move.
  • Reduced minor bruising by rubbing with Arnica cream.
  • You may use your regular makeup immediately after treatment.
  • Avoid other facial treatments and exercise for 24-48 hours.

Recovery time: No downtime required. Occasionally, patients experience bruising that may last 1-2 weeks. In such cases, social downtime may be preferred, but is not necessary.

How many treatments will I need?

Typically, 1 treatment will provide results that last from 9-12 months and sometimes longer.

Juvederm ® Volift ®

If you’d like to reduce the appearance of smile lines, smoothen facial contours and restore volume to the lower face, Anti-Aging Medical & Laser Clinic is pleased to offer Juvederm ® Volift ® to Vancouver clients. Volift is the new addition to Allergan’s dermal filler range.

Volift restores youthful contours and softens smile lines. You’ll see improvement after just one treatment.

For more information about Volift costs or to book a consultation, contact us.

What is Juvederm® Volift ®?

The cheeks, chin and jawline area are affected by the passage of time: loss of volume and definition, and deeper wrinkles around the mouth and chin develop or deepen and become more noticeable as you age. Juvederm Volift (with lidocaine for patient comfort) reduces the appearance of smile lines, restores lifts and smoothens the contours of the lower face and jawline. The result is a more youthful, vibrant looking you.

(Results vary by individual patient and results cannot be guaranteed)

Benefits of Juvederm ® Volift ®

  • Immediate improvement to wrinkles and folds around the mouth and chin.
  • Subtle, natural looking results.
  • Minimal swelling with no downtime.
  • Non-invasive, nonsurgical quick procedure.
  • Results that can last up to 15 months.

Am I a good candidate?

You are probably a good candidate for Volift injection treatments if you have:

  • Noticeable nasolabial folds (smile lines) that extend from the corner of outside corner of your nostrils down to the corner of your mouth.
  • Deep folds or wrinkles in the lower face.
  • A sagging jawline that lacks definition.
  • Noticeable chin wrinkles.
  • Loss of volume in the lower face.

Juvederm Volift contraindications

Do not have Juvederm Volift treatments if you: have severe allergies with a history of anaphylaxis (extreme allergic reaction), have an allergy to lidocaine or gram-positive bacterial proteins.

  • Avoid any injectable dermal filler treatment if you are pregnant, think you might be pregnant, or are presently breastfeeding.
  • Do not have Volift injections if you have active acne, herpes, or any infection at the injection sites. Wait until symptoms subside and re-book your appointment.
  • Tell your doctor about any known allergies or autoimmune problems.

Before the treatment

  • Avoid red wine the evening prior to treatment.
  • To decrease the risk of bruising, avoid taking aspirin, motrin, Ibuprophen, advil and blood thinning medication 2-3 days before your treatment.
    • Avoid taking 1 week before the treatment: Don quai, evening primrose oil, ginkgo leaf, ginger, garlic, ginseng, feverfew.

What happens during the treatment?

Before the treatment, a series of photos will be taken so we can document your progress – comparing how you looked before the treatment with how you appear after. A treatment plan will be discussed and areas for improvement will be determined. A numbing cream may be applied and allowed to take effect for 10 or 15 minutes after which your Volift treatment will begin. An ice pack will be used to further freeze the injection sites just before each injection. The numbing cream in combination with ice pack freezing makes the Volift treatment quite tolerable. Most patients experience only minimal discomfort.

Treatment time: 15 minutes to 1 hour depending on the number of areas being treated.

After the treatment

After the treatment, you may notice slight swelling or puffiness and/or minor bruising around the injection sites. This usually dissipates within a few hours.

  • Avoid other facial treatments for 2 days after the Volift treatment.
  • Avoid strenuous activity or exercise for 2 days after the treatment.
  • Do not sleep on the treated area for 2 days after the treatment.
  • In some cases, minor swelling and bruising may persist for up to 2 weeks.

Recovery time: No downtime required, though patients who experience more noticeable swelling and bruising may feel more comfortable taking social downtime until the after effects subside.

How many treatments will I need?

Typically, one treatment will provide noticeable improvement for about 1 year, but results can last up to 15 months.

Other treatment options

Our Vancouver, BC skin and laser clinic offers a number of dermal filler treatments that restore lost volume and fill facial folds and wrinkles. A consultation will determine which filler is right for you.

Juvederm ® Voluma ®

Juvederm ® Voluma ®

If you’d like to rid yourself of the telltale signs of aging that affect the cheeks, mid-face, jawline and chin, our skin and laser centre offers Juvederm ® Voluma ® to Vancouver, BC clients. Voluma is formulated with hyaluronic acid (HA), which replaces the body’s natural HA that is depleted as we age. HA helps skin retain moisture and volume. After a Juvederm treatment, your skin will appear fuller, have more attractive contours, and look healthier and more youthful.

To book a complimentary consultation or to find out more about Juvederm costs, contact us.

What is Juvederm® Voluma ®?

Juvederm Voluma is an  HA-based injectable dermal filler that provides instant, natural fullness to sunken cheeks – restoring those apple cheeks and correcting age-related volume loss. Juvederm injections fill and subtly lift treatment areas, and best of all, can last for up to 24 months – much longer than most fillers. Juvederm Voluma contains lidocaine – an anaesthetic that makes the treatment quite tolerable and relatively painless.

In a prospective observational study of 115 subjects, Juvederm was well tolerated and resulted in high levels of treatment satisfaction when used to correct mid-face volume loss. 95.6% of subjects registered scores of “Delighted” or “Happy” immediately after treatment.
