Dermal fillers are used to add volume where there are lines and wrinkles on your face. The most common filler gel is hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar substance that draws in moisture to smooth the skin surface. As such, the wrinkles and lines become less visible.
Juvederm is designed to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles from on your brow, the corners of the mouth, and smile lines. In different formulas, Juvederm can be used to augment the chin, cheeks, and lips, and improve skin texture.
How Does Juvederm Work?
Juvederm is applied via injection into the inner skin layers using a syringe and blunt tip cannula. Different Juvederm formulas will vary in viscosity and thickness.
Juvederm works fast usually within a few hours following injection to smooth out lines, wrinkles, and the skin surface. The filler and moisture-holding compound, hyaluronic acid, will keep the skin smooth, full and soft. The results of Juvederm treatment can last from between 9 and 22 months.
The process starts with a consultation with Botox Ottawa Downtown to examine your skin surface to identify problem areas. The doctor design a treatment plan by taking note of areas that require plumping to aid in smoothing out folds, creases, and wrinkles.
The actual treatment entails the injection of Juvederm gel into the upper subcutaneous tissues as per the plan. Injections will be made in identified areas or depending on the thickness of the skin in that area. One or more variants of the gel will be used depending on treatment goals.
The gel will dissolve into the body after a period of about nine months. Juvederm treatment is therefore not a permanent solution for folded or wrinkled skin. Patients can be happy to learn that the appearance of their faces is not permanent in case of undesired treatment results. There are reversal agents that can be used to undo undesired results of treatment.
Advantages of Juvederm
Juverderm is a smoother gel compared to other dermal fillers in the market and this helps to prevent rippling and bumping. It is, therefore, the most effective for the treatment of localized problem areas of your face.
Patients at Botox Ottawa Downtown have reported satisfactory results with Juverderm treatments to smooth away larger creases or folds such as nasolabial folds.
With careful application by our staff in the correct areas below the skin, Juvederm helps to improve and define the lip boundary. It will ensure an appealing swoop boundary for restored thinning lips creating a pouty and youthful look.
