The Next Generation Wrinkle Remover
As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. But with Juvéderm™ injectable gel, you don’t have to just sit back and let it happen! Recently approved by the FDA, Juvéderm™ injectable gel is a “next-generation” dermal filler. The smooth consistency gel helps to restore your skin’s volume instantly and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (also known as nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
If you’re interested in being treated with this nonsurgical physician-administered treatment option, you should know the advantages of choosing Juvéderm™ injectable gel:
Juvéderm™ is a “next-generation” non-animal dermal filler that is made from hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance that plays a vital role in hydrating your skin and replenishing its natural volume. No allergy skin tests are needed prior to receiving treatment.
It provides advanced technology for long-lasting results. Juvéderm™’s advanced manufacturing process creates a gel that flows consistently and easily into the skin and provides a smooth, natural look and feel. Juvéderm™ is the only filler available with this smooth-consistency gel formulation—other existing hyaluronic acid fillers are made of gels with a granular consistency.
What To Expect During Treatment
Because Juvéderm™ injectable gel is a simple, nonsurgical treatment, there is minimal recovery or downtime. So you can make an appointment to stop by one of LaserVue’s four Bay Area centers for treatment on the way home from work or the gym—or even while the kids are at soccer practice—and get right back to your life.
The procedure: Dr. Swati Singh, LaserVue’s facial rejuvenation expert, will ease the Juvéderm™ injectable gel under your skin to augment, or fill, wrinkles and folds. Following the injection, Dr. Singh may gently massage the treated areas. The procedure is quick and easy. The injection itself usually takes only 15 minutes.
After the procedure: With Juvéderm™ there is minimal recovery or downtime. For the first 24 hours following treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, and consumption of alcoholic beverages in order to help minimize the risks of temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the treatment sites. Some temporary injection-related reactions may occur, including redness, pain, firmness, swelling, and bumps. Studies have shown that these are usually mild to moderate in nature and clear up on their own in seven days or less. If you experience swelling at the injection site, you can apply an ice pack for a brief period.
Seeing results: You should see an immediate improvement in the treatment areas. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results last up to six months or more. However, results may vary and correction is temporary. Supplemental touch-up treatments may be required to achieve and maintain optimal results.
