Juvederm is a highly sought-after FDA-approved dermal filler injectable procedure which helps mitigate facial signs of aging. A primary reason for the popularity of this dermal filler treatment is the relatively longer lasting results that it offers.
The treatment provider will discuss various facets of the Juvederm dermal filler medical spa procedure during the initial consultation, including its longevity. The first concern of the injection provider will be to inform the patient regarding various aspects of this treatment to enable them to make a well-informed choice from among multiple alternatives.
Reger Vein and Skin Specialists, led by Dr. Gregg Reger, provides Juvederm cosmetic filler to patients in Spring, TX, The Woodlands, and surrounding locations in this area of the profound state of Texas.
Sustainability with Vycross Technology
Juvederm dermal filler finds its basis in the revolutionary Vycross patented technology which enables robust cross-linking of the molecules in the gel. This cross-linking withstands and fights the early disintegration of the filler gel and offers more sustainable outcomes.
Results with a Juvederm injection can last for up to a year. This is higher than the sustainability of various other hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers.
Though many other soft tissue fillers contain the same ingredients as Juvederm, all of them are not as sustainable due to the fact that their molecules are not linked using Vycross technology.
If the filler gel is not strongly cross-linked, it will start disintegrating quickly. The powerful cross-linked Juvederm dermal filler gel will last in the treated area beneath the skin for a considerably longer time.
Higher Concentration of HA
The main component in the Juvederm filler gel is hyaluronic acid (HA). This is a biocompatible compound that exists naturally in the body. HA holds the structure of the skin together. When an individual ages, the quantity of HA in the body gets depleted.
This leads to skin volume and elasticity loss. Juvederm filler contains a higher concentration of HA than many other medical spa fillers. This enables it to provide more sustainable outcomes.
One more benefit of having natural HA as an ingredient is that the body will not discard Juvederm filler as an alien substance. This enables the gel to sustain in the deeper layers of the skin for a longer duration leading to longer-lasting anti-aging results. This is a major improvement over collagen injections which contain animal products.
The body rapidly detects collagen that is animal-based as an unnatural material and disintegrated it quickly. However, this does not occur with Juvederm dermal filler.
The Juvederm filler gel can sustain between 6 months to one year or even more in certain cases. Facial areas with dynamic muscle movement will not sustain the outcomes for a significantly long time. For instance, wrinkles and lines surrounding the mouth will experience more movement due to facial expressions.
The wrinkle depth and skin laxity will differ between patients. Regardless, Juvederm filler gel effects will dissipate slowly. The entire gel will not disintegrate in one instance. Dr. Gregg Reger receives patients from Spring, TX, The Woodlands, and nearby areas for Juvederm treatment.
