Why is Juvéderm preferred over Restylane?
The molecules of Juvéderm are much smaller in comparison to those of Restylane and therefore absorb less water than Restylane resulting in less swelling on the areas treated.
Juvéderm is also known to be much smoother than Restylane, and for that reason it causes less irritation than Restylane, especially when it is used to make the lips appear fuller, achieving a softer and instant plump without the swelling that Restylane provides. Juvéderm has a unique formula within itself which also includes a local anaesthetic to decrease any painful sensations from the treatment.
What is Juvéderm made of?
Juvéderm is a formulation of Hyaluronic acid.
What is Hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural occurring substance in our bodies. It is utilised in the body to hydrate and to add volume to the skin.
Is Hyaluronic acid safe?
As Hyaluronic acid is created in the body naturally, to inject it into the skin as a Juvédermdermal filler only adds to the skin as a supplement to help to hydrate and create a more youthful appearance and acts as a prevention to the aging process.
Who is suitable to have Juvéderm treatment?
In time when a person begins to age, you will find that naturally that the body’s production of Hyaluronic acid will begin to decrease. This is the main cause of wrinkles on the face and also the reduction of the fullness in a person’s lips. Those individuals who feel that they are beginning to notice deep smile lines are suitable for treatment; these can be individuals who are of a mature age. Using Juvéderm can be a means of prevention from developing signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines. Others may wish to be treated with Juvéderm to enhance the natural beauty of facial features such as contouring the lips or the cupids arch. Juvéderm is not limited to treating only a specific clientele range, but can be used as complete dermal filler for the face.
How long does the treatment take?
The treatment duration is not very long at all; the treatment itself does not take any longer than 15-20 minutes. The consultation prior to the treatment will be a separate time from the treatment itself.
Is the treatment painful?
A local anaesthetic will be applied to the treatment area, to numb the skin from feeling the sensation of the needle of the Juvéderm syringe. As an anaesthetic cream will be applied you will not feel the insertion of the needle, as the skin will be numbed prior to the treatment, there will be minimal amount of discomfort. Juvéderm has a unique formula within itself which also includes a local anaesthetic unlike other formulations of dermal fillers to decrease any painful sensation.
What is the downtime for Juvéderm treatments?
There is no potential resting time post treatment, if there is any swelling, you will see that this will subside after 24 post treatment. There may be some bruising but that will be at a minimum as arnica cream will be applied straight after the treatment to reduce the amount of bruising if any.
How long do dermal fillers results last?
Commonly results last anything between 9-12 months on the face. What after care is provided after a Juvédermdermal filler treatment? Post treatment the consultant will provide the client with anti bruising cream, should the need be to use it. This will help to heal any bruising or swelling which may have occurred during the treatment.
