Everything You Need to Know About Juvederm
Juvederm is a type of facial filler that has grown considerably in popularity over the last few years for the treatment of wrinkles and fine lines. Cosmetic Medical Clinic and Vein Clinic is happy to provide our clients with Juvederm treatment in Edmonton. Here's what you need to know to help you decide if Juvederm is a good choice for you.
What is Juvederm?
The Juvederm line consists of a collection of cosmetic fillers. At Cosmetic Medical Clinic and Vein Clinic, we carry Juvederm Ultra XC, Ultra Plus XC, Voluma XC, Volift, and Volbella. The main component of each formulation is a molecule called hyaluronic acid. Naturally found under the surface of the skin, hyaluronic acid helps skin retain moisture, provides nourishment for collagen, and gives skin a more youthful appearance.
How Does Juvederm Work?
As we get older, our bodies begin to produce less hyaluronic acid. Sunlight exposure can also slow down hyaluronic acid production. With less of this hydrating and nourishing molecule, the skin begins to develop wrinkles, fine lines, and folds.
Juvederm injections restore the hyaluronic acid in your skin, which allows the skin to retain more moisture, elasticity, and fullness. This produces a smoother facial structure with fewer wrinkles, reduced fine lines around the mouth and nose, fuller lips, and lifted cheeks. As Juvederm simply restores your own natural facial contours, the results are very natural looking.
Juvederm Treatment: What to Expect
Juvederm is a quick and simple treatment that doesn't require much prep or recovery time. Here's what you can expect before, during, and after Juvederm treatment in Edmonton.
Prior to Juvederm treatment, an expertly trained nurse will perform a complete examination and analysis of your facial structures. This will help determine where Juvederm injections should be done and, just as importantly, where they should not be done. You will also be asked about your medical history.
Juvederm is a minimally invasive and nonsurgical treatment, so you don't have to worry about experiencing too much pain or discomfort. The injections also contain a small amount of local anesthetic, and a topical numbing cream can be applied to the area prior to injection as well. One Juvederm treatment session can take anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour depending on the areas being treated.
AfterRecovery time after Juvederm treatment is also minimal. In fact, you can continue right on with your day when your appointment is done. Results are instantly noticeable and can last for as long as 18 months, which is considerably longer than other facial fillers.
