We are often taken aback when we look in the mirror and find a face with fine lines, wrinkles and creases around the eyes and mouth, as well as skin that looks dull and lifeless. Skin Deep Laser Med Spa offers Juvederm®, a dermal filler, to people living in and around Los Angeles, Pasadena, and the surrounding areas, who want to take years off their appearance and look fresh and renewed.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is a gel-based dermal filler used to diminish lines and creases around the nose and mouth by smoothing out the skin. Made with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that gives it volume, Juvederm® restores elasticity and moisture to the face revealing a younger and healthier complexion. Juvederm® has grown in popularity because it lasts longer than other dermal fillers – typically between six and 12 months.
Benefits of Juvederm®
In addition to being a minimally invasive and painless skin treatment, Juvederm® offers the following benefits:
- Uses no synthetic ingredients
- Results are immediate and only improve with time
- Lasts up to 12 months
- Takes only up to an hour for a treatment
- Able to resume normal activities immediately after appointment
Is Juvederm® Right for Me?
Juvederm® is safe and effective for most anyone who is considering dermal fillers and injectables. If you notice that you have marionette lines (lines from the corners of the mouth down to the chin like a puppet), nasolabial folds (lines from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth), or fine lines around the lips that show bleeding lipstick, you may be a candidate for Juvederm®.
How is Juvederm® Administered?
During your treatment, we simply inject the Juvederm® filler into the targeted areas with a very fine-gauge needle. If necessary, we may massage the area to ensure it is evenly distributed. The treatment takes about an hour depending on the extent of the area to be treated. Juvederm® is very well tolerated because the filler contains lidocaine so there is no discomfort; however, for patients who are very nervous about it, we can apply some numbing cream though it is not necessary. Most patients require several treatments to achieve their desired look although the results from each one are immediate.
Recovery from Juvederm®
As with most dermal fillers and injectables, there is no downtime and the results are immediately noticeable. Patients return to their normal routines after their appointments.
