Juvéderm® in Indianapolis, IN: How Does It Work?
Dr. Amy offers Juvéderm®, one of the leading hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers on the market, from Allergan, the makers of Botox®. Juvéderm is made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance found in the skin that plays a role in the production of collagen for maintaining volume.
It also helps retain moisture and softness. As we age, hyaluronic acid decreases in our skin and leads to volume loss. Our skin then begins to droop and sag and fine lines and wrinkles will begin to appear.
Juvéderm will restore lost volume in treated areas by replenishing hyaluronic acid and enabling an increase in the natural production of collagen. It can reduce the signs of aging by filling in the wrinkles seen when your face is at rest.
Juvéderm can be used on many areas including the lips, cheeks, lines from the nose to the mouth, lines from the mouth to the chin, hands and temples. Juvéderm® is not a permanent treatment and cannot give you the same results as plastic surgery.
The effects can last anywhere from six months to two years. The Juvéderm® formula is non animal-based and has very low risk of allergic reaction or rejection. It is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid that has a proven track record of safety.
Benefits of Juvederm Treatment
The benefits of Juvederm include reducing wrinkles and a more youthful appearance. Juvederm can also add volume to your cheeks to reduce facial sagging. It may also add definition to your jaw line.
The procedure is minimally invasive and does not require a resting period after it is complete. If you are looking to reduce wrinkles, smooth facial skin, and make yourself look younger, Juvederm may be a great option for you.
How long does Juvederm last?
The results from Juvéderm injections will last for about a year. The lifespan of Juvéderm treatment is dependent on the body part being treated. It is not a permanent solution, so the material will naturally be broken down and reabsorbed by your body over time.
Does Juvederm work immediately?
Yes. You will be able to see your results immediately! You may experience some minor swelling or bruising but this should resolve after a week.
What is the Juvederm process like?
The procedure itself will last 15-30 minutes, depending on how many syringes are needed and which parts of your face are being treated. A typical session uses 1 or 2 syringes of Juvéderm®. The syringe of Juvéderm® will be injected into the mid to deep dermis (below the outer layer of the skin) by Dr. Amy.
What can you not do after Juvederm?
After Juvederm procedure patients should avoid excessive heat including, hot foods and beverages, saunas, hot showers, and sun exposure. Patients should also avoid alcohol for the first 24 hours post treatment.
How long are you swollen after Juvederm?
Patients are typically swollen for about 2 weeks after treatment. Swelling is typically minimal and begins to subside after about a week.
What should you avoid before Juvederm?
Patients should refrain from using any moisturizer, cleanser, and facial ointment for at least 48 hours before juvederm treatment. These products may irritate skin which could negatively impact your treatment.
