JUVEDERM®

JUVEDERM™

 

Made up of hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that naturally occurs in the human body, Juvéderm™ is an injectable gel with a smooth consistency that can be used to improve skin’s volume and hydration. Using a fine needle, a member of our experienced team of medical professionals can inject the gel just below the surface of the skin. The HA reacts with moisture in the skin, and like a sponge, it soaks up the moisture and expands. This reaction increases volume, reducing the appearance of fine lines for a more youthful complexion. Clients can achieve a rejuvenated, natural-looking appearance with this FDA-approved dermal filler. Juvéderm™ is proven to be safe and effective for most skin types.

What is JUVEDERM®?

One of the most popular dermal fillers available on the market today, JUVEDERM® can bring patients long-lasting correction of wrinkles, fine lines, and lost facial volume in as little as one treatment session. FDA-approved for cosmetic use in 2006, this product is one of the most versatile and reliable treatments of its kind.

How Does it Work?

The JUVEDERM® family of products’ unique hyaluronic acid gel is what makes it so well-suited to treating a broad range of the signs of aging. Hyaluronic acid works by attracting water molecules to the areas where it is injected. This infuses the area with extra volume and moisture that lasts.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance that delivers nutrients to the skin, helping the skin retain moisture and softness and adding volume.

What sets this treatment apart from other hyaluronic acid gels is the hylacross technology it’s created with. This technology creates a smoother, more malleable gel that lasts for an extended period of time, and makes it more equipped to fill in smaller, more precise fine lines.

What can it Treat?

What sets JUVEDERM® apart from other injectable treatments is the enormous breadth of cosmetic issues that it can address. Because JUVEDERM® is a smooth consistency dermal filler, it can be used to small fine lines and wrinkles to an incredible level of precision.

It can address wrinkles like crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, marionette lines, and smile lines. JUVEDERM® can also treat loss of volume in the cheeks, or correct thin or uneven lips.

What is a JUVEDERM® Treatment Like?

One aspect of many dermal filler treatments that makes many clients anxious is the pain of the injection process. Fortunately, JUVEDERM® injections do not have the same discomfort associated with them as other dermal fillers. This is because JUVEDERM® is indicated with lidocaine, a mild anesthetic that makes injections significantly easier to tolerate.

While there is typically no downtime associated with this procedure, possible side effects include redness, pain, swelling, bruising, itching, and discoloration at the injection site. Fortunately, these usually fade within a few days of undergoing a treatment session.

 

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC

As the first and only dermal filler to be FDA-approved for volume enhancement in the midface, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC can augment the cheeks and improve facial contour for a rejuvenated appearance. Adding volume to the cheeks with this cross-linked hyaluronic acid (HA) filler can help to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, as well as restore fullness to the face. With the subtle lift provided by JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, many clients have been able to achieve a more youthful look. Results are often seen immediately after treatment, and clients should be able to return to their daily activities without any downtime. This cosmetic injectable is intended for use in clients 21 and over.

RESTYLANE®

Dermal fillers have proven exceptionally adept at smoothing out even the most pronounced forms of wrinkles and fine lines along the face. Restylane® is one of the more popular injectable fillers available for many reasons: it can significantly reduce the appearance of moderate-to-severe wrinkles and creases; the treatment is fast and the results are rapidly apparent; and the effects are long-lasting. Made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the human body, Restylane® binds its chemicals to moisture in your skin, effectively causing the areas targeted for treatment to appear smoother and more youthful. Restylane® has proven very effective at rejuvenating nasolabial folds (lines between the nose and mouth), and is now FDA-approved for lip augmentation in patients 21 and older. With Restylane®, Donna can add volume to the lips and give them a fuller, more sensual, and more contoured look that can enhance the appearance of your entire face.

The entire Restylane® injectable treatment typically takes less than 45 minutes to perform, and clients are usually able to resume normal daily routines right after the procedure. Even better, Restylane’s® results are known to last up to six months, and can be maintained with follow-up treatments!

Radiesse®

Radiesse® can help to provide you with a renewed, healthier, and more youthful appearance. When injected into targeted facial areas, such as hollowed cheeks, Radiesse® is designed to actually stimulate collagen regrowth. This dermal filler consists of calcium-based microspheres, which aid collagen reproduction in the skin. Because of this, results often tend to last longer than outcomes from other dermal fillers. During treatment, Radiesse® typically begins to improve the appearance of the skin immediately. Over time, as your body naturally produces collagen in the treatment areas, your appearance should continue to improve. Radiesse® can be ideal for improving volume in the cheeks, as well as smoothing marionette lines and smile lines.

Sculptra® Aesthetic

If you’ve experienced a loss of volume in facial features such as the cheeks and temples, Sculptra® Aesthetic can replace that volume for a healthier, more youthful appearance. This long-lasting filler is one of the most innovative injectable products available, and it can be used for a number of issues you may be experiencing with your skin. Sculptra® Aesthetic can not only add volume to facial features – it can also smooth out deep wrinkles and signs of age along the face, and even reduce the appearance of facial depressions and acne scarring. Composed of poly-L lactic acid, Sculptra® Aesthetic does not typically require an allergy test before treatment. The solution will be injected into the targeted areas, where it will work to stimulate your own collagen. As your collagen continues to grow, the effects should continue to improve. Sculptra® Aesthetic is known to have results that last for up to two years, and even longer in some cases. Once the effects begin to fade, an occasional touch-up treatment can maintain the effects.
