The Gentleman's Guide to Juvederm®

Friday, December 15, 2023

facial rejuvenationFacial rejuvenation procedures are no longer just for women. Now, men are embracing the power of self-care and looking for ways to rejuvenate their appearance. Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm®, are one of the most effective ways men can restore a more youthful appearance. When injected by an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Bershof, the results are both dramatic and natural-looking.

What Is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a dermal filler made with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring compound that keeps your skin plump. When injected into specific areas of the face, it immediately restores volume and improves symmetry of the cheeks, chin, and jawline. Juvederm comes in a variety of formulations, all of which offer their own unique benefit.

The Juvederm family of fillers include:

  • Juvederm VOLUMA.
  • Juvederm XC.
  • Juvderm Volux.
  • Juvederm Ultra Plus.

What Areas Can Juvederm Treat?

One of the main benefits of Juvederm is its versatility. For example, VOLUMA can be used to sculpt your cheeks, enhance your chin’s projection, and define your jawline. Juvederm XC can soften the lines that run from the corners of your mouth to your chin and the nasolabial folds on the sides of your nose. Juvederm Volux is usually injected to enhance your jawline, giving it a more defined and angular appearance. Ultra Plus can be used in the perioral area and to replace lost volume in the lips.

Candidates for Juvederm

The best candidates for treatment with Juvederm are men who are looking for a non-surgical approach to facial rejuvenation. They understand that while Juvederm can dramatically improve their appearance, it is not a substitute for a facelift, and repeat treatment is needed to maintain the results. Additionally, they are in good health and do not have underlying medical conditions that contraindicate treatment with Juvederm. Dr Bershof will discuss with medical history prior to treatment to ensure you are a good candidate for Juvederm.

Could You Benefit from Juvederm Voluma Treatment?

Monday, November 15, 2021

The cheek area is instrumental in giving the face youthful, attractive contours. This part of the face is contoured by bone structure and also by fatty tissue that lies on top of the bone. As we age, the mid-face loses volume in the way of fat and hyaluronic acid. The fatty tissue that gives the cheeks nice curvature weakens and descends down the face. Hyaluronic acid is a saccharide that binds to water molecules to plump and smooth the skin. Without sufficient amounts of this substance, the mid-face becomes relatively flat and nondescript. If you’re starting to notice these changes in your face, you may be a perfect candidate for Juvederm Voluma

What Is Juvederm Voluma?

Voluma is one of the many Juvederm dermal fillers available today. Juvederm fillers are all made with hyaluronic acid particles suspended in a gel base. Each particle of hyaluronic acid can hold hundreds of times its own weight by binding to water molecules. Each Juvederm hyaluronic acid formulation is made with specifically-sized particles to achieve particular results. Of them all, Voluma is the most viscous of this family of fillers. This means its hyaluronic acid particles are larger and it has more of a structural characteristic to it. As it should, because Voluma was made for the cheek area, where it must restore the skin’s foundation. 

How it Works

Juvederm Voluma works immediately upon insertion into the deeper layers of the skin. Due to its thicker consistency, this filler works best farther beneath the skin’s surface. Here, it can round out the cheeks and give them height without making them appear unnaturally puffy. In addition to contouring the cheeks, Voluma can also be inserted into the tear troughs between the upper cheek and the under eye skin. Here, the filler can eliminate or significantly reduce the appearance of under eye bags. 

There are no serious risks involved with Juvederm treatment because hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the body. Patients enjoy gratifying results with zero downtime. Though slight redness and swelling may occur, these are usually subtle enough to go unnoticed. After Juvederm Voluma injections, the results of treatment can last up to two years.
