Dermal Fillers at Empire Medical Center
What is Juvéderm (Dermal Fillers)?
Juvéderm is an injectable facial filler, used to soften deep folds and reduce wrinkles. It is a long-lasting gel that is injected directly into the skin with an ultra-fine needle. This process lifts and adds volume to the sites that are injected. Juvéderm has a similar makeup to the body’s own natural substance (hyaluronic acid).
Benefits of Juvéderm
It is obtained by biosynthesis — natural.
It is of non-animal origin and the molecule is highly bio-compatible and biodegradable.
It does not require any prior testing.
Juvéderm dermal filler will enhance the sensuality of your lips and smooth the curves of your face. Through a simple injection, without prior testing, minor imperfections and signs of aging are smoothly softened, thus achieving an aesthetically pleasing look.
Juvéderm Treatment Areas
Deep folds (naso-labial folds) around the mouth
Lip enhancement – minimize smoker lines, restore fullness that has disappeared after weight-loss or with age, accentuate pout and pillows, create voluptuousness for thin lips
Cheek Enhancement – more volume in the cheek bone area which enhances facial contours and balance
Shaping facial contours (cheeks and/or chin correction) or known as non-surgical face lift (liquid facelift)
Marionette lines (sad smile)
The effects of Juvéderm typically last between 8 and 10 months, depending on skin type, the area treated, the volume injected, and the technique used for the procedure.
The outcome can be optimized and made to last longer with a touch-up procedure a few weeks after the initial treatment. This will be decided during your consultation our provider at Empire Medical Center.
Seeing results after Juvéderm
You should see an immediate improvement in the treatment areas. Most patients need only one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results last up to nine months or more. However, supplemental touch-up treatments may be required to achieve and maintain optimal results.
How does Juvéderm work?
Hyaluronic acid is the lattice onto which collagen and elastic fibers bind. It also absorbs water and thus, is a hydrating agent that helps to make the injected areas appear fuller.
Juvéderm is injected into the appropriate areas that concern the patient the most, and the areas that have changed the most as they have aged. It is injected with a very small, fine needle, and the substance itself contains an anesthetic, making the treatment quite comfortable.
The treatment is performed in the office in 15-30 minutes!
Is Juvederm injection procedure painful?
The very fine needles that are used combined with the fact that anesthetic is mixed into the substance makes the treatment very easy to tolerate for most people. The minimal discomfort present at first fades quickly as the anesthetic takes effect.
Are you a good candidate for Juvéderm?
Juvéderm can be used on any patient, however, in order to decide which anti-aging treatment is best for you, it is necessary that you meet our provider at Empire Medical Center and discuss all possible methods of skin rejuvenation.
