Typically, when we age, our skin loses volume which results in facial wrinkles and folds. Obviously, it’s not possible to stop the aging process, but there are solutions that help rejuvenate your skin to maintain a youthful look! Juvéderm is a dermal filler made of a naturally occurring substance in our skin called hyaluronic acid. This filler helps to create more volume in your face and diminish wrinkles.
Types of Juvéderm and Their Uses
- Juvéderm Voluma XC: increases the size of your cheeks by adding volume beneath skins suface.
- Juvéderm XC and Juvéderm Vollure XC: corrects the loss of elasticity in your skin and fills out wrinkles and lines around the mouth and nose.
- Juvéderm Ultra XC and Juvéderm Volbella XC: non-surgical lip enhancement.
How to Prepare for the Treatment
Avoid taking blood thinning medications including aspirin and ibuprofen. Also avoid drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes weeks prior to the treatment so you are at less of a risk for bruising. Typically, the injections are done the same day as the consultation, so make sure you’re well informed and clearly communicate what you want the end result to look like.
During the Treatment
Dr. Boulos will first start by using a pen to mark the areas they’re going to administer the injection. Once injected, she will massage the area to ensure that the Juvéderm is evenly distributed and to reduce the risk of swelling. Typically, the procedure takes approximatley 15 minutes – 1 hour.
There’s little recovery time involved once the procedure is complete. In order for it to heal faster and better, avoid tiring physical activity, sun exposure, makeup and consuming alcohol for at least one day.
How Long Do Results Last?
Luckily, you will see results instantly after the procedure is complete, so you can enjoy your rejuvenated skin right away! Typically, results can last for up to 1 or 2 years, depending on which product we recommend.
