Fight the Aging Process
As we get older, our skin tends to lose youthful volume. Wrinkles and folds deepen and become more prominent. Juvederm can help minimize these changes and help restore skin volume and tone.
Juvederm is a simple injection and requires a minimal amount of time and minimal associated discomfort. Results are immediate. Your skin will gain volume and wrinkles will be minimized. Recovery time (downtime) is minimal. Most clients receive an injection under 30 minutes and leave with noticeable results and a new look that is fresh, yet subtle.
Juvederm is made of hyaluronic acid and is a smooth gel. It occurs naturally in the skin to help add volume and hydration. This means Juvederm is bio-compatible and simply enhances your own body’s naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid. Due to a unique molecular bonding process, Juvederm will remain in the treatment area for six to nine months.
Juvederm is an excellent complementary treatment to laser hair removal, nonsurgical facelift and microdermabrasion as well as other simple non-invasive treatments. Since Juvederm is essentially composed of a naturally occurring substance, hyaluronic acid, it will not complicate the healing process of other treatments nor will it cause undue discomfort or pain.
Every Juvederm injection is administered by our trained nurse practitioner after a complimentary consultation. A topical anesthetic is usually applied immediately prior to the injection. Pain is usually minimal, and most clients experience a minor pinch with the injection. Juvederm Ultra XC, which contains lidocaine, is available and used in most cases to minimize discomfort. No general anesthetic is needed or used.
Everyone Notices, No One Knows
Juvederm adds to existing hyaluronic acid which results in the appearance of softer, more youthful skin without the telltale stretched look associated with a surgical facelift.
Look and Feel
Juvederm treatments use a smooth consistency gel that, in addition to adding a lustrous youthful appearance to skin, also has the tactile sensation of young skin, soft and malleable – but also consistent and strong. No lumpiness or scarring is possible since the hyaluronic acid compound is a naturally occurring one in the body and will be metabolized over time (albeit very slowly.)
Since Juvederm is a biocompatible product consisting of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, there is little risk of an allergic reaction. This makes Juvederm a perfect combination with other skin treatment options such as microdermabrasion, Botox®, and laser hair removal.
Treatment You Can Trust
Juvederm was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. It is safe in patients of all skin types and color. The advanced proprietary manufacturing process results in a smooth malleable gel that flows easily into the skin creating a natural look and feel.
