The skin naturally contains hyaluronic acid, which delivers the hydration necessary to keep skin smooth, tight, and volumized. Hyaluronic acid helps to keep your skin smooth and supple by binding to moisture and acting as a natural defense against the signs of aging. Juvéderm works to do all of these things as well. Juvéderm is a dermal filler containing a concentrated formula of hyaluronic acid that helps to “fill in” fine lines, wrinkles, and creases around the nose and mouth. Treatments with Juvéderm help you look younger and more refreshed by minimizing the appearance of wrinkles. When injected, it acts as a sort of framework for the skin, giving it needed support that has been lost as a result of the natural aging process. It also helps the skin to regain a more polished look. The Bloom Medical Spa in Dallas, TX is pleased to offer Juvéderm to those who want to soften the presence of fine lines and wrinkles in achieving a more youthful appearance. Juvéderm injections are performed by Registered Nurse and Certified Nurse Injector Carolyn Craft or our Physician Assistant, Karen Wiltin.
Juvéderm imitates the hyaluronic acid found naturally in the skin. It has been FDA-approved for use by patients who are 18 and older, as well as those who have many different skin types for the treatment of
- Moderate to severe lines, wrinkles, and skinfolds on the face.
- Expression lines.
- Lip augmentation.
- Shaping and contouring of the face.
When you meet with our certified injector for your initial consultation, they will discuss your individual needs and goals for treatment. Based on this information, they will work with you to create your Juvéderm treatment plan to help you obtain maximum results in your quest for a more youthful appearance.
What To Expect
When patients come into our office for their Juvéderm procedure, the appointment itself will not take long. To begin, a numbing cream will be applied to the skin. Our certified injector will utilize a special technique that ensures an even distribution of the Juvéderm product as it is injected underneath the top layer of the skin. They may also perform a gentle hand massage at the treatment site to aid in the product’s delivery. This process helps them distribute the product’s even placement for the ultimate smoothing effect. Juvéderm goes to work immediately, and results become visible right away.
Post-treatment, the skin at the treatment site may feel stiff, and some slight swelling and redness may occur. Placing an ice pack on this area should help to minimize any such side effects which will only last a short while. However, the results of the Juvéderm treatment can last up to 1 year. The product will then be naturally absorbed by the body as it breaks down. At that time, patients will need to return for additional treatments to maintain the results. At maintenance visits, a lesser amount of Juvéderm is usually required to maintain results as opposed to the initial procedures.
