What is JUVEDERM®?
JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel is a quickest and safest product used to reduce wrinkles and folds around your nose, mouth and lips. It restores the natural suppleness of facial skin by fulfilling its requirement of hyaluronic acid, the naturally occurring sugar found in the human body that is responsible for hydration and retaining water in the skin. At Medspa California, we provide JUVEDERM® treatment because we understand that you wish to get a younger looking skin without any side effects.
JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel is an FDA approved dermal filler that has the highest concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid. Some other benefits include:
Injections take only 15 to 20 minutes
Suitable options available for various skin types
Non-surgical cosmetic procedure that gives long lasting results
Patients can resume work directly after treatment
Fills in facial folds and creases
The Ideal JUVEDERM Candidate
Anyone who is unhappy with the early signs of aging may make a great candidate for Juvederm. The treatments can benefit both men and women; it is safe for any skin type or ethnicity. The ideal patient will be in overall good health, understand the Juvederm process, and hold reasonable expectations for their results. Those with a history of an allergic reaction to dermal filler injections should not undergo a Juvederm treatment. A consultation appointment will be held before beginning Juvederm injections, to determine if Juvederm will meet each patient’s unique needs.
The JUVEDERM Procedure
The Juvederm procedure will take less than half an hour complete. Juvederm XC contains Lidocaine, an anesthetic, which keeps discomfort to a minimum. For added comfort, patients may request a topical numbing cream or local anesthetic. Once the consultation and anesthesia have been completed, the wrinkle-reducing filler will be applied with a very small needle, just above the underlying muscle and bone tissue.
Results from JUVEDERM
The benefits from Juvederm injections can be seen immediately. Lines and folds will be eliminated, the skin will be lifted, and healthy volume restored. Over the next two to three weeks, as any residual swelling or redness resolves, the results from Juvederm will continue to improve. The Hyaluronic Acid contained in Juvederm will also encourage the body’s natural production of collagen, giving the face further improvement.
The results from Juvederm can last from six to twelve months, sometimes longer. This will depend on the treatment area, the extent of correction, and the type of Juvederm used. After this time, a repeat treatment can be used to maintain the results.
