What is Juvederm®?
JUVÉDERM® is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Dr. Altamira eases JUVÉDERM® injectable gel under the skin to provide a smooth, natural look and feel so everyone will notice (but no one will know)!
How does Juvederm® Work?
With JUVÉDERM® the injection process takes only about 15 minutes and results are immediate. Plus, there’s minimal recovery or downtime. So you can step into your doctor’s office for treatment and step right back into your life.
Types of Juvederm
Dr. David Altamira offers the following Juvederm Products:
- Juvederm Ultra Plus
What is Juvederm Ultra Plus?
Juvederm Ultra Plus is an FDA-approved dermal filler used to correct more severe facial wrinkles, deep nasolabial folds (the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth), and marionette lines (the lines from the corners of your mouth down toward your jawline) and to fill in depressed areas in the cheeks.
What is Juvederm Voluma?
Juvéderm Voluma™ is an FDA-approved dermal filler formulated specifically to add volume to the face around the cheeks and chin. This dermal filler can help restore more youthful contours by plumping up the area that so often loses volume as part of the aging process. It can also return a firmer shape to the jaw line when some softening has set in.
How long does Juvederm Voluma last?
Juvéderm Voluma is not only an effective treatment method, but it is long lasting as well. In many patients, the results will last for a period of up to 18 months.
