If you would like to reduce wrinkles and fine lines around your eyes and mouth, plump up your cheeks, or augment your lips, a Juvéderm® treatment at our Fort Worth clinic may be the right choice for you. Juvéderm® is an FDA-approved dermal filler that utilizes gel-like substances found in nature to smooth out lines and wrinkles and add volume to facial features. The advantage of Juvéderm® is that it is non-invasive, does not involve surgery, and offers a quick way to achieve a more youthful and smoother complexion with virtually no downtime.
Juvéderm® is a popular injectable dermal filler composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the human body. Hyaluronic acid, found in connective tissue, the skin, and the eyes, helps retain water, provides lubrication to promote elasticity, and stimulates collagen production. Juvéderm®’s hyaluronic acid is sterilized and chemically modified to produce long-lasting effects.
There are three types of Juvéderm® treatments that target specific areas, and each treatment contains different concentrations of hyaluronic acid:
Depending on the treatment, Juvéderm® can last up to 12 to 18 months. Patients may need future treatments to maintain certain features.
As previously stated, Juvéderm® uses hyaluronic acid to add volume to and smooth out certain facial features. Since hyaluronic acid and collagen production decreases with age, Juvéderm® offers a natural solution to turn back the clock, tighten loose skin, and soften wrinkles. Juvéderm® treatments can be completed at our Fort Worth office in sixty minutes or less, depending on which areas you want treated.
During the procedure, Licensed Aesthetician and Certified Injector Jennifer Geyer will mark the problem areas and then inject the Juvéderm® gel accordingly. Juvéderm® gel typically contains a mild local anesthetic (lidocaine), which reduces discomfort during the treatment. When the injections are finished, Jennifer may massage the treatment areas to ensure the gel is evenly absorbed into the skin.
Patients can resume their day-to-day activities immediately after a Juvéderm® treatment.
Patients should be aware of several possible side effects of Juvéderm®:
Side effects typically resolve within a few days to weeks.
Most patients see immediate results after one treatment, recovery time is minimal, and depending on the area treated, results can last up to a year or more. It is advisable to avoid strenuous activity, sun exposure, and wearing makeup for at least 24 hours post-treatment.
If you would like to reduce facial wrinkles and fine lines or add volume to your cheeks or lips, consider getting a Juvéderm® treatment at our Fort Worth clinic for a non-invasive solution. Jennifer and the experienced medical staff at our office would be happy to schedule a consultation to discuss your options and develop a treatment plan that can help you reach your goal for a smoother, refined complexion.
