What is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM®, JUVÉDERM® Plus and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus are all hyaluronic products that have been used successfully for intradermal injections with the intended purpose of filling lines and wrinkles as well as enhancing thin lips. The JUVÉDERM® product line is available at Dr. English’s Surgi-Spa in Little Rock, AR, and allows for a choice of longevity in the results obtained because of the way the injectable materials are prepared. Through a process known as cross-linkage, the HA molecules are “linked” together to allow a more aggressive gel that can produce results that last longer than those products that are less cross linked.
Cross-linkage can best be thought of as you might think of the difference between a barbed wire fence and a chain linked fence. When the molecules become more interwoven as with a chain linked design, the product becomes more gelatinous and will be less apt to lose its desired shape once placed within the dermis whether to fill a line or wrinkle and/or to plump up lips.
As technology improves, we can expect to see these types of modifications that will allow a better product as well as one that is more cost effective for the patients. If you would like more information concerning the use of the JUVÉDERM® line of products, please call us for a consultation at your convenience.
Another popular product in the Juvederm® family of fillers is Voluma®, which is FDA approved for treating age-related volume loss. Voluma® consists of hyaluronic acid to firm and plump the cheeks, restoring more youthful contours and eliminating sagging.
A loss in volume may also occur in the lips, along with fine lines and wrinkles that cause lipstick to bleed. Volbella® addresses the issue of thin, wrinkled lips by providing fullness to smooth the skin and cause them to appear thicker and more voluptuous.
The makers of Juvederm® have utilized the same technology they used to create Voluma® in order to come up with Vollure®. This dermal filler specifically addresses moderate-to-severe facial folds and wrinkles, such as the nasolabial folds that often appear between the mouth and nose.
How much does Juvederm® cost in Little Rock?
Each Juvederm® procedure is unique because it is performed with YOU in mind. Since your needs will be different from other patients, it will not be possible to provide you with an exact cost until after you meet with Dr. English the first time. Once he has established a treatment plan, we can then go over the cost and discuss which method of payment might be right for you. We accept cash, personal checks, and major credit cards, in addition to financing through CareCredit® or MedLoanFinance.com.
Juvederm® is generally considered an elective procedure and is therefore not covered under most health insurance plans. As such, our office does not accept any form of health coverage.
