Juvederm injections

Juvederm

Juvederm is a cosmetic injectable known as a dermal filler. Dermal fillers are injected into the skin to help add volume where it is missing, treat sagging skin, or reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

The treatment line includes a number of products, each aimed at targeting unique areas and concerns. All products under the Juvederm line include the primary ingredient hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring, “moisture-binding” product of the body that helps add volume to and hydrate the skin.

Juvederm treatment areas may include the lips, cheeks, under the eyes, and around the nose.

Why use Juvederm?

Juvederm injections are used to help add volume to volume-deficient areas of the face. Depending on your treatment needs, it may be used around or in the lips, under the eyes, in the cheeks, or around the nose. In general, Juvederm adds volume to the cheeks and lips; treats wrinkles extending from the nose to the mouth (smile lines), from the mouth to the chin, and fine lines and wrinkles above the lip; and diminishes the appearance of frown lines.

What does Juvederm do?

Juvederm is more suitable for wrinkles that are present when your face is at rest. It is a smooth gel filler made of hyaluronic acid that can help replenish the areas of the face where the skin’s volume and fullness have been lost due to age, sagginess, or other reasons.

How long does Juvederm last?

Generally, more robust fillers like Voluma are FDA approved to last up to 2 years. While Juvederm Ultra is approved to last up to 1 year. Another factor that determines how long your Juvederm filler will last is the natural makeup of each individual person.

Cheek filler

Does Juvederm work immediately?

As soon as it has been injected, the mere presence of Juverderm beneath the skin is enough to smooth, plump, and volumize the face. Those immediate results are a nice form of instant gratification. But it usually takes another two weeks to see Juvederm results for the client’s results to fully develop, or settle.

Pictures

Say “cheese”

Pictures taken before the procedure provide a better view and understanding of the areas to be treated, and can be consulted when discussing specific goals with the practitioner. When compared to your “After” pictures, they are an effective way to track treatment results over time.

Diagnosis

Personalized muscle diagnosis

The practitioner first conducts a personalized assessment of your facial anatomy. She identifies the best treatment for achieving optimal results. Next, she marks the exact injection points with a white makeup pencil. Your injection sites will be cleaned with an antibacterial agent. For lip injections, a nerve block may be administered. If you experience any pain at the injection site, a cold instrument will aid your skin along with anesthetic ointment to numb the treated area.

Injections

Begin treatment

The injection itself takes a few moments per treated area. Your practitioner will inject, massage, and evaluate the area being treated. Using the marked points as a guide, the practitioner proceeds with injections and determines the minimum amounts needed to achieve the desired effect. If needed, an additional filler may be used to make sure you are happy with the results and that it meets your aspirations. Depending on your personalized treatment, the process may range from 15 to 60 minutes.

What can you not do after Juvederm?2022-10-11T13:34:59-04:00

A few simple guidelines post-treatment can make a difference between a good result and a fantastic one.

  • Avoid excessive heat such as saunas, hot showers, the hot sun or cooking over a hot stove. This may cause the blood vessels to dilate and cause more bleeding and bruising.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise after the procedure. This may raise your blood pressure and pulse causing more bruising and swelling.
  • Avoid direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time. Wear sun block to protect your skin. Sunlight may cause permanent discoloration after bruising.
  • Avoid drinking alcohol for 24 hours after treatment. Alcohol may cause the blood vessels to dilate and cause more bruising.
  • If lips are treated avoid straw drinking immediately after your treatment and for 2 weeks.
  • No massages of the area treated or with face in a massage cradle for 2 weeks after treatment.
  • Avoid taking Advil, Vitamin E, Ginger, Ginko, Bilboa, Ginseng, and Garlic for 2 weeks after the procedure since this may increase the risk of bruising. You may shower and do most other regular daily activities.
  • Do not apply Make-up after the procedure for 12 to 24 hours.
  • You may apply cold compresses or ice to the treatment sites to reduce swelling and bruising if instructed by your practitioner.
  • We recommend Arnica Montana pills or gel to prevent bruising these can be purchased in our office or at any health food store.
  • Note that any bumps or marks from the extremely small needle sticks will go away within a few hours. If you do develop a bruise it will resolve like any other bruise. There is occasionally some mild pain, swelling, itching, or redness at the site of injection similar to most other injections. Redness may last for 1-2 days, rarely longer.
