Is Juvederm the right dermal filler for you?

Get Rid of Wrinkles – Juvederm in Rhode Island

With so many different types of dermal fillers on the market, it is easy to be confused over which one may be the better choice. Juvederm is a popular brand most people have heard of because of the millions spent in marketing the product. However, you do have other choices. There are many FDA approved, safe and effective fillers on the market that may be a better option depending on your area of concern and budget.

The most important decision you will make when choosing to have dermal fillers injected is the physician or nurse you choose. The field of ‘medical aesthetics’ is constantly evolving resulting in better outcomes and higher patient satisfaction. Always make sure the injector you choose is up to date on the latest advancements and techniques. For example, many Juvederm, Restylane and Radiesse injections to restore volume can and should be done with a blunt tipped micro-cannula to lessen downtime and risk to the patient. This is rapidly becoming the new standard of care. More info can be found at this link.

The next important decision is determining which dermal filler to use. We all want a cost effective product providing natural results and longevity. Certain types of filler are more suited for different areas of the face. It also tends to last longer in areas of the face with less movement. For example, Juvederm or Restylane injected deep with a blunt tipped micro-cannula under the eye to fill out hollows or soften bags can last up to a year or more in many patients. While injections done with a sharp needle typically do not last as long (no doctor or nurse should be injecting with a sharp needle near the eye anyway). But the same filler used for the upper lip lines or around the mouth may not last as long. Radiesse is often a great choice for cheeks and mid-face volume loss because it can last over a year or longer. It is also is the only injectable filler that causes your body to create new collagen in the area the product was placed, which is a big plus for most people.
