injectables_juvederm

What is a Juvederm Procedure?

It is a quick, simple, comfortable and non-surgical procedure during which Juvederm® injections with hyaluronic acid are strategically placed under the skin to restore volume and definition to facial features. It can be used as a wrinkle filler as well as to restore volume in the chin, cheeks and lips, while keeping your appearance natural looking and well balanced. Juvederm® is a FDA and Health Canada approved dermal filler. The Juvederm® family includes Juvederm® Ultra and UltraPlus XC as well as Juvederm® Voluma™ that is a new and innovative product for volume loss used for sunken cheeks and firming the jawline..

Juvederm® Volbella with Lidocaine is a new treatment for the lips that is used to not only gently restore natural-looking lip volume, but also for defining lip contours and treating lines around the mouth.

The Juvederm® treatment is administered with a very small needle after the skin has been cleaned and numbed with some ice. Discomfort is minimal due to the addition of the local anesthetic lidocaine to the Juvederm® XC formulations. Generally, the process takes no more than 30-45 minutes to complete.A follow-up appointment after 2 weeks is included in the price of the treatment to assess results and determine if any further treatment is required.

How does it work?

This procedure uses hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that begins to diminish during the aging process. Hyaluronic acid is a natural occurring acid found in your body that combines with water in your skin to restore fullness. It is biodegradable and reversible and will break down gradually over time and disappear from your body. Juvederm® is a FDA and Health Canada approved dermal filler and can be used as a treatment for several purposes, including adding facial volume, filling smile lines, filling lower face areas, and filling hollowed temples.

Are the results immediate?

Yes! The results are instantly visible so that “everyone will notice, but no one will know”!

Does it hurt?

Several precautions can help to minimize discomfort. Dr. Steyn only uses Juvederm® XC (extra comfort) that contains the local anesthetic, lidocaine, to minimize pain.The area is iced before injection to reduce pain and improve comfort. Only very small needles are used. Dr. Steyn also takes the extra time to inject the product slowly and carefully. All of these precautions have been shown to improve the patient experience.

The benefits of the Juvederm and Voluma procedure

  • Immediate results with a single treatment
  • Long-lasting effects: Juvederm® Voluma™ has been reported to last up to 18 months and longer, while Juvéderm® Volbella is the only dermal filler clinically proven to last up to 12 months in the lips with a single treatment.
  • Minimally invasive: The procedure does not require the use of scalpels or general anesthesia and patients can have the injection administered conveniently in their doctors’ offices.
  • Juvederm® Voluma™, specially designed for adding facial volume, is intended for restoring fullness to the face such as restoring fullness of the cheeks, filling hollowed out temples and firming and re-contouring the jaw line.
  • Natural-looking results: The smooth-consistency gel with pain-reducing lidocaine ensures a naturally enhanced appearance that helps patients reclaim their youthful looks.

Juvederm and Voluma Recovery

How long is the recovery time?

Brockville, Ontario patients who had a Juvederm® procedure can generally resume normal activities on the same day. There may be some bruising, swelling and redness associated with the injection of the filler. This can easily be covered with a camouflage kit as well as some make-up, and will gradually fade over the next week. Dr. Steyn recommends ice to reduce swelling for up to 24 hours after the procedure and a pain reliever as needed to ease any pain. Strenuous exercise should be avoided, as well as rubbing the treated areas during the following 24 hours. Avoid excessive steamy baths and saunas and do not use a tanning bed. It is best for patients to avoid pressing or lying on the treated areas for a day or two.
