As we age and our collagen production decreases, we experience a loss in facial volume. Dermal fillers are an effective solution to restoring youthful facial fullness.
WHAT IT DOES
Dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM®, offer immediate results, plumping the skin in volume-deficient areas. They can smooth, shape, plump and contour various areas of the face including the lips, mouth, temples, cheeks, eyes and nose in a single treatment. Volume loss in the hands can also be reduced using dermal filler treatments.
HOW IT WORKS
JUVÉDERM® is composed of hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance naturally found in the body, which has a broad range of applications. When injected under the skin, it tightens and lifts the surrounding skin of the injection site, while filling the targeted area.
WHAT TO EXPECT
HOW IT FEELS
The use of topical anaesthetic may be used if necessary. Lidocaine found in JUVÉDERM® also contributes to making the treatments more comfortable and tolerable.
Depending on the area and number of areas being treated, this treatment typically takes 30-60 minutes.
While most normal activities can be resumed immediately following the treatment, some swelling and tenderness may occur. Bruising may appear and take a few days to subside.
Typically, dermal filler treatments can last up to 12 months. It is recommended that treatment be continued once per year to maintain results.
