There are many options to rejuvenate your skin, and at Rinnova Skin & Body we like to maintain options that are both effective and non-invasive. Juvéderm is one of the top dermal fillers on the market, with effects that have been proven to last for up to a year. Injectable fillers are an extremely effective option that returns your youthful appearance by plumping and volumizing your skin. Most fillers use a collagen or hyaluronic acid replacement to literally fill your skin, thus preventing sagging. It can also be used to augment your lips, in the same way. We choose to use Juvéderm because of its proven effectiveness, as well as its safety.
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is a dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid, which is a compound that naturally occurs in your body and that helps keep your skin full. However, we often lose these acids as we age, and as a result our skin can become thin and show sagging and wrinkles.
Dr. Becker and Lili inject Juvéderm under the skin in the treatment area. The compound itself fills the region under the skin, leading to a “plumping” effect that pushes out wrinkles. You can use Juvéderm to add volume to the following areas:
- Smile lines
What to expect during your treatment?
Avoid any blood thinners such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and fish oil for a week prior to the procedure to decrease chances of bruising. The procedure itself is quite simple and short, lasting 15-30 minutes. More than one syringe may be necessary to achieve the results you desire. The majority of side effects from dermal fillers such as Juvéderm are mild and short lasting. These may include swelling, bruising, tenderness, firmness, lumps/bumps, pain, and redness. We are always happy to reduce the appearance of bruising by using our VBeam laser, should you have any.
