Juvéderm Wellesley by Dermatology Partners
Juvéderm can help take years off your face, without the need for any invasive surgery. Common signs of aging that Juvéderm can address include lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth and loss or lack of volume to the midfacial area and lips. The smooth consistency of the gel injects easily into the skin and provides a smooth, natural look and feel. Unlike Botox, dermal fillers do not relax the muscle activity, rather they literally fill in areas where volume has been lost.
What is Juvéderm?
Is an FDA approved family of injectable dermal fillers that are used to correct signs of facial aging, and can last for 6 to 12 months. Derived from a naturally occurring substance that plays a vital role in hydrating the skin and replenishing its natural volume, no allergy skin tests are needed prior to receiving treatment. Also, there is no human or animal DNA in Juvéderm
Who’s a Good Candidate for Juvéderm in Wellesley?
Patients who want to fill in their wrinkles and folds without resorting to surgery will find that JUVÉDERM is an excellent choice for them. Hyaluronic acid is effective in dealing with issues such as:
- “Smile lines” (from the nose to the corners of the mouth)
- “Marionette lines” (below the mouth)
- Lip augmentation
- Hollow cheeks and other recessed areas
- Chin contouring
What to Expect During Our Juvéderm Treatment
Juvéderm treatment is performed in the office, during a procedure that lasts approximately fifteen minutes. After the treatment area is numb, a few tiny injections are used to deliver Juvéderm to the area of volume loss. The filler itself contains a numbing agent, the treatment itself is relatively pain-free. The results of Juvéderm for filling in deep lines can be appreciated immediately. However, there is sometimes very mild swelling after the treatment, so the results continue to look better and better in the days following your treatment. Juvéderm lasts for 6-9 months after a single treatment.
When will I see results after Juvéderm treatment?
You will see al immediate cosmetic improvement in the treatment areas following the procedure. Unwanted folds, wrinkles, and lack of volume in the skin will no longer call attention. Most patients need only one treatment to achieve optimal results which last up to 12 months or more. However, supplemental touch-up injections may be required to achieve and maintain optimal results.
