Juvederm in Ormond Beach is a dermal filler used for aesthetic purposes. This filler is injected under the skin to add volume, smoothing out wrinkles and folds on the face that are moderate to severe. With Juvederm, signs of aging can be treated and facial contours can be enhanced.
Hyaluronic acid, the active ingredient in Juvederm, is crucial to the skin’s ability to retain water, which helps gives the skin its youthful fullness. The Hylacross technology used in the manufacturing of Juvederm makes the filler smoother. Juvederm injectables also contain lidocaine, which numbs the treatment area.
Why Choose Juvederm?
The use of Juvederm is recognized by the Food and Drug Administration as a safe cosmetic method of facial rejuvenation. Juvederm is completely non-surgical, meaning patients will not have to deal with periods of downtime/recovery time.
Juvederm is effective for minimizing the appearance of facial wrinkles like the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, parentheses lines, and perioral lip lines. It can also augment the volume of the lips and restore volume to areas like the cheeks, jawline, and temples.
Is Juvederm Right for Me?
A treatment with Juvederm may be beneficial for adults who have developed wrinkles and age lines on their faces. Ideal candidates for the therapy are men and women who want to reverse the signs of aging in the midface area.
If you have fine age lines that you would like to address—crow’s feet, glabellar lines, and horizontal forehead wrinkles—it may be better to choose an injectable neuromodulator like Botox. Juvederm is not designed to treat these types of superficial wrinkles.
What Happens During a Consultation?
During a Juvederm consultation, you will be asked about your aesthetic objectives and expectations. Due to the minimally invasive nature of the treatment, it is frequently carried out on the same day as the consultation.
Alcoholic beverages and cigarettes should be avoided before receiving Juvederm injections, since they increase the risk of bruising. Make sure to voice any concerns about food, medication, or other sensitivities. If you are taking a drug that increases your risk of bleeding or bruising at the treatment site, you may need to vary dosage.
What Happens During the Procedure?
Board-certified Physician Assistant Bridget Kelly has a great deal of experience with Juvederm treatments. Bridget will inject Juvederm under the skin of the targeted area using a very fine needle. It is unnecessary to numb the injection site before using Juvederm fillers, since lidocaine, a local anesthetic, is already present in the product.
Treatment time might range from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the extent of the affected area and the number of Juvederm injections necessary.
What Are the Aftercare Steps Following the Procedure?
After undergoing Juvederm treatment, patients can typically go about their normal routines immediately. Take it easy for the first two days to minimize any swelling or bruising that may occur. After the treatment, the skin may be a little red and numb, but this can be fixed with a cold compress or a light massage within a few hours or days.
When Will I See Results?
The results of a Juvederm treatment can be seen right away and are intended to last for six months to a year. Sticking to a regular skincare routine and living a healthy lifestyle can help the treatment work better and last longer.
How Much Does Juvederm Cost?
The cost of Juvederm can vary depending on how many injections are delivered. Price may also be affected by the number of syringes used. One syringe may be all that’s needed to permanently erase the wrinkles around your lips. It is possible that two or more syringes will be needed for each session, depending on the location of the injections.
