Juvederm is a line of dermal fillers used to treat a variety of conditions on the face. As a person ages, it is common for repeated expressive movements to cause wrinkles to form around the eyes, mouth, forehead, and other areas.
A variety of factors can also cause your cheeks or lips to lose volume, leaving you looking hollow and gaunt. Juvederm offers a versatile line of products, each specifically designed to combat a particular sign of aging. They use hyaluronic acid gel of varying consistencies to fill in weak spots and promote your skin’s healthy, natural restoration.
If you have prominent signs of aging on your face, including wrinkles, creases, hollow areas, or thin lips, Juvederm may be able to help. Marina MedSpa offers four Juvederm products designed to address almost all of the most common complaints. The different formulations and their treatment focuses are:
When you come in for a consultation at Marina MedSpa, we’ll listen closely to your concerns and help you design a personalized treatment plan that’s just right for you.
Juvederm is a safe and effective treatment and is a good option for most patients. Because it is minimally invasive and does not require sedation or surgery, there is little chance of substantial pain or complications. Being in overall good health is a good indicator that Juvederm may be right for you.
If you have any allergies, make sure to inform your aesthetic professional because some of the ingredients in Juvederm can cause a reaction. Juvederm products are only approved for use in people over 21 years of age and tell your provider if you are pregnant or nursing. We find that it is important that patients understand the treatment well and have realistic expectations for their results. Also, it is always recommended that you speak to your primary care physician before having any elective treatment done.
The procedure for administering Juvederm injections is relatively simple, and most treatments can be completed in less than 30 minutes. Because there is no sedation involved, you can expect to return to your daily routine immediately.
The medical aesthetics provider will begin by cleaning the skin of the targeted area and applying a topical anesthetic if necessary. Then, they will use the syringe and needle to inject the compound into the targeted area. Usually, they make a series of injections around the treatment zone to make sure that the effects of Juvederm are uniform and natural in appearance.
There is typically no downtime associated with Juvederm treatments. You may be advised to minimize strenuous exercise, and sun exposure as these can interfere with the healing process. Patients sometimes experience minor side effects like redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising, and itching, but these are common with dermal filler procedures.
You may also notice that the treated area changes in volume or appearance over the first few weeks, but this is normal as the gel settles and your body adjusts to its presence. Any side effects typically resolve within the first few days, but it may take up to a month in some cases. If you have any serious symptoms like an infection, vision abnormalities, or severe numbness, contact your provider immediately.
You should notice preliminary results from your Juvederm treatment immediately following your procedure. The appearance of wrinkles should be reduced or eliminated, and your face should have its full, natural, healthy look restored.
The duration of the results depends on various factors, but most patients can expect their results to last between several months and a few years. Maintaining your health and being diligent with your skincare routine will go a long way to allowing you to enjoy your youthful look as long as possible.
