Juvederm In San Diego

Juvederm dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid injections made in the skin which provide long-lasting results. A super fine needle is used to make the injections in the appropriate areas. This is a completely safe treatment because hyaluronic acid is a natural substance already found in the body.

Think of Juvederm filler treatments like hyaluronic acid supplements. As we age, the body doesn’t naturally produce enough hyaluronic acid anymore. These filler treatments simply compensate for the lack of hyaluronic acid in your face so that your skin and lips continue to look young.

The four main advantages to Juvederm are as follows:

  • No prior testing needed.
  • Biosynthesis is used.
  • No animal ingredients used.
  • A highly biodegradable molecule is used

Juvederm injections can restore your smooth facial curves and plump lips to make them look more naturally attractive again. All it takes is a mere injection to fix these minor flaws in your face and lips.

Dermal fillers and Botox® treatments are great when administered together. Professionals believe this will give you the best results possible. Juvederm® can help treat issues such as deep nasolabial folds, fine lines on the face, flat lips, irregularly shaped facial contours, smile lines, and marionette lines.

After the procedure, you can optimize the results so that they last longer. Just go back to the doctor within a couple of weeks to receive minor touch-ups. During your consultation, the doctor will decide how many touch-ups you will need.

What To Expect From Juvederm Treatment

Juvederm is a non-invasive treatment that simply gets injected into the affected areas of the skin. You won’t need much time to recover after the injections are administered. In fact, the treatment sessions are so short that you can get them done during a lunch break and then go back to work right afterwards.

How Does the Procedure work?

During the procedure, the doctor administers Juvederm facial filler injections underneath areas of the skin which have folds and wrinkles. The injections fill these areas and smooth them out. The whole process is quick and painless in an environment that is quiet and private. It shouldn’t take longer than 15 minutes for the injections to be administered.

Post Procedure Period

No downtime is needed after receiving a Juvederm injection. Although, you should refrain from exercise, heat exposure, alcohol consumption, or too much sun exposure for at least 24 hours after the procedure. This will help reduce the severity of the symptoms afterward, such as swelling, bruising, itching, and redness.

The Results

Immediate improvements will be noticeable after the procedure. For most people, one treatment is enough to achieve their desired results. Sometimes the results will last for up to one year, depending on the condition itself. But you may need supplemental injections for touch up purposes if you want the results to last longer than one year.

Everyone absorbs hyaluronic acid in a different way. If you make certain facial movements on a regular basis that affect the injected areas of the face, then you may notice the results diminish a lot faster. Other factors that affect the results include the rate of sun and heat exposure to the skin. Generally, the results of a Juvéderm® injection should remain for between six months to one year.
