How long does Juvederm Facial Filler last?
Juvederm ranks among the foremost facial filler injections to reduce the facial aging lines for people who want to avoid cosmetic surgery. One of the reasons for the popularity of this FDA approved procedure is the relatively higher longevity of its results.
During the initial consultation, the injection provider will discuss all aspects of Juvederm filler procedure, including how long it may last. The provider will also like the patient to clearly understand the difference between the sustainability of a facelift plastic surgery and an injectable facial rejuvenation treatment such as Juvederm.
Muse Plastic Surgery, led by double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Wright Jones, provides Juvederm facial filler injections to patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Stockbridge, Marietta, GA, and surrounding communities.
Longevity with Vycross Technology
The manufacturer of Juvederm facial filler has patented the innovative Vycross technology. Vycross allows for a stronger cross linking of the filler gel’s molecules. This robust cross linking of molecules resists the early breaking down of the gel. As a result, the patient can enjoy extended results with Juvederm.
Results with a single injection treatment of Juvederm can last for up to one year, which is significantly higher than many other dermal filler injections. Plastic surgeon to the stars Dr. Jones recommends Juvederm filler treatment to appropriate candidates.
Higher Concentration of HA
The active ingredient in Juvederm facial filler is hyaluronic acid (HA). The role of natural HA in the body is to hold the skin structure together from within. With age, the natural HA starts getting depleted, resulting in sagging facial skin. Juvederm filler gel can replace HA in the targeted areas of the face.
Compared to other similar dermal fillers, Juvederm gel contains a higher concentration of HA, which allows for longer sustainability of results. Another benefit of the natural HA component is that the body will not quickly reject Juvederm filler as an alien object. This allows the gel to remain embedded in the deeper skin layers for a longer time period.
Unlike animal-based fillers, where the body quickly disintegrates the gel because it identifies the filler as an unnatural object, in case of Juvederm there is complete biocompatibility of the filler. This results in longer lasting outcomes. Secondly, Juvederm filler gel triggers the production of fresh collagen fibers in the deeper tissue. This will help volumize the facial skin from within over several months to a year.
Celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Jones will educate the patient about the potential benefits and limitations of Juvederm filler injections, including the estimated longevity of results.
When a patient decides to receive a secondary treatment at the end of four to six months, sometimes the benefits can be cumulative. In a secondary treatment the filler will be “stacked” in the treated sites, which will increase its longevity. The technique used by the injection provider can also make a difference to longevity.
