Plump, voluminous lips and cheeks are youthful and therefore always trending, and you don’t have to be graced with the right genetics to keep them as you age. Savvy Aesthetics in Bell, California, offers two types of JUVÉDERM® filler treatments that allow you to achieve the fullness, smoothness, or general kissability that you desire without dangerous suction cups or unsightly broken blood vessels that result from them.
What is JUVÉDERM?
JUVÉDERM is an FDA-approved filler. Fillers are injected into the desired area on your face to give you the glow-up that you desire. Savvy Aesthetics offers two types of JUVÉDERM for different purposes. The Savvy team will determine which is best for you based on your goals.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
JUVÉDERM Voluma XC is intended for patients over the age of 21. Sunken cheeks are a product of aging and can make you appear older than you are. If you’ve lost volume in your cheeks over time, JUVÉDERM Voluma XC can restore their youthful softness.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
JUVÉDERM Volbella XC is also intended for patients over the age of 21. If you lust after the plump, smooth lips of models in magazines, JUVÉDERM Volbella XC allows you to achieve luscious lips without the proper genetics or any dangerous gimmicks or surgeries.
How does JUVÉDERM work?
JUVÉDERM fillers are injected into the desired area on your face, adding volume and reducing wrinkles in your cheeks or lips. The active ingredient in JUVÉDERM, hyaluronic acid, is naturally produced by your body to stimulate tissue growth and keep your skin’s natural plumpness and glow.
JUVÉDERM injections also contain a small amount of lidocaine, a numbing agent that reduces or fully eliminates discomfort or pain during the procedure. After injecting the filler, your provider at Savvy Aesthetics will lightly massage the area to evenly distribute it and reduce your chances of swelling.
Is JUVÉDERM safe?
Like any minimally invasive procedure, JUVÉDERM injections come with some risks that you’ll need to be aware of before committing to the treatment. Risks and side effects of JUVÉDERM and other filler injections include:
Luckily, most of these side effects go away within two to four weeks of your injection. In extremely rare cases, if the JUVÉDERM is mishandled, it can be accidentally injected into a blood vessel causing much more serious complications. If you’re concerned about the safety of the procedure and the likelihood of a serious issue, the Savvy team can answer all of your questions prior to your appointment.
If you’re after the luscious, youthful look, JUVÉDERM can help you achieve it no matter your age.* Call or schedule an appointment online at Savvy Aesthetics to learn more today.
