What Is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is a highly popular and well-reviewed injectable dermal filler. This dermal filler is natural, made from hyaluronic acid, and leaves the face with a more youthful and attractive looking appearance. It restores the volume to the face that the person had when they were younger. The filler treats many problem areas around the face. Juvederm® is requested more than other injectables because the effects last for up to one year.
Benefits Of Juvederm®
There are several benefits to using Juvederm®. Some of the benefits include
- All-natural injectable
- Increases volume in the cheeks
- Helps the face regain its youthful appearance
- Smoothes away fine lines and wrinkles
- Improves the contours of the skin
- Lasts for up to one year
How Is Juvederm® Administered?
While most patients choose to receive Juvederm® without it, some patients may receive a local anesthetic to help relieve any discomfort before the procedure. Dr. Davis uses a fine needle for the more noticeable folds and wrinkles of the face. Hyaluronic acid is the primary ingredient. It’s a substance found naturally in the body, and when injected it gives the skin much-needed hydration. The skin is left looking younger, feeling smoother and has improved elasticity.
Preparing for a Juvederm® Treatment
An important part of preparing for Juvederm® treatments is to be well-informed regarding the procedure. You should advise Dr. Davis of any medications that you are taking. He may advise you to stop taking them in preparation for your Juvederm® treatment. Certain medications may have adverse side effects, or counteract the treatment, when taken at the time of the injections. Avoid any anti-inflammatory medications for at least one week before the procedure. The restrictions on anti-inflammatory drugs will help to reduce the risks of bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
You should avoid engaging in any type of strenuous activity for 24 hours after the Juvederm® injections. Try to avoid touching the injection sites on the face. Other activities to avoid include consuming alcohol within 24 hours of the procedure and excess heat, sunlight and cold temperatures for two weeks after the procedure.
How Much Does Juvederm® Cost?
Because insurance companies see skin rejuvenation procedures as elective; most policies will not cover this procedure. To make Juvederm® more accessible, David Facial Plastic Surgery accepts financing through CareCredit®. If you have any questions about the cost and financing your Juvederm® treatment, do not hesitate to contact Davis Facial Plastic Surgery. You can pay by major credit card, personal check, or cash.
Is Juvederm® Right for Me?
If you have wrinkles, smile lines, and flattened or sagging skin on your cheeks and want a solution that will help you look younger, Juvederm® may be the right choice for you.
What to Expect During Your Consultation
Dr. Davis will help you decide if Juvederm® is the right choice for you. During the consultation, you need to honestly discuss your medical history, recovery goals and what you expect from the procedure. Dr. Davis will listen to your goals and customize the process to meet your needs. The consultation begins with a physical exam, then a discussion about Juvederm®.
