What is Juvederm?

Dermal fillers are an increasingly popular treatment for patients with specific facial concerns like wrinkles. The procedure can also help bring about more definition in facial structures by adding more volume. The gold standard when seeking Juvederm injections is from your board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Maki Rheaume, who develops the best approach to give you optimal results.

There are many types of injectable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers from the brand Juvederm. The different products differ in elasticity and thickness. Your doctor will choose the most suitable type depending on the results you want to achieve and the current state of your face. If you want to add more volume to your cheeks or lips, your doctor will recommend the less flexible products. However, if you do not wish to a volume change and only seek hydration, for example, in your under eyes, then the thinner products are ideal.

What are the benefits of Juvederm?

There are many reasons you should consider getting injectable hyaluronic acid fillers. This treatment is perfect for:

  •         Restoring volume to your cheeks and lips, recreating a fuller look.
  •         Reducing fine lines and wrinkles, thus giving you a more youthful appearance.
  •         Bringing definition to your lips and making your face look rejuvenated.

Apart from all, there is to gain from getting dermal fillers; other benefits offer convenience.  The procedure is relatively quick compared to plastic surgery, with most doctors performing the treatment in at most 30 minutes. Moreover, it is minimally invasive and thus has lesser complications and side effects. You will instantly notice results as soon as your doctor completes the procedure, and although the results are not permanent, they are long-lasting.

The best thing about hyaluronic acid fillers is their ability to dissolve into the skin. Therefore, you can reverse the cosmetic results any time you desire. Although one syringe cannot provide a complete face transformation, it will tweak a small portion of your face. Your doctor might have to use multiple syringes of the dermal fillers to create a more dramatic facial transformation.

Why is it essential to consult with your doctor before getting dermal fillers?

Although the procedure is relatively quick, minimally invasive, and without downtime, your doctor should conduct an initial consultation to understand your facial anatomy better and develop the proper technique that will achieve the results you desire. Moreover, your doctor will only address all your treatment concerns is to let them know what you want to achieve during your consultation appointment.

What to expect during your injectable dermal filler appointment 

This procedure is outpatient. The first thing your doctor will ask you to do is remove any makeup from the treatment site. Afterward, your doctor will apply topical anesthesia that will make the injections less painful for you. Your doctor needs to clean the area using a medical-grade antibacterial cleanser. You should expect the treatment to take at least 15 minutes per syringe. However, the time you spend will depend on the area of treatment.
