How It Works!
A “next generation” filler that is injected into your skin, Juvéderm® provides a smooth, natural look and feel—so everyone will notice (but no one will know)! Studies show superior results of Juvéderm® compared to a collagen-based dermal filler. It is optimally formulated for versatility in immediate contouring, volumizing, and correcting wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm® is the only hyaluronic acid filler FDA approved to last up to 1 year!
Why You Should Consider Juvéderm® from Smooth Skin Centers:
Immediate results!!! The injection process takes only about 30 minutes, so you can step into your doctor's office for treatment and step right back into your life. Plus, there's minimal recovery or downtime.
Men and women of varying ethnicities have been treated with Juvéderm® at Smooth Skin Centers. Our registered nurses are certified and very skilled at injecting Juvederm™, using the manufacture recommended procedure.
Preparation for the Treatment:
Juvéderm® injectable gel should not be used in patients who have severe allergies marked by a history of anaphylaxis or history or presence of multiple severe allergies. You should not have Juvéderm® if you have a history of allergies to Gram-positive bacterial proteins. Prior to your treatment, please print, complete and bring the “Client Info and Medical History,” as well as “Botox/Juvederm Consent Form” found here to your appointment.
During the Treatment:
Once you and our nurse have discussed your area of concern and agreed upon the appropriate treatment, our nurse will gently ease Juvéderm® injectable gel under the skin with a small needle to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). No anesthesia is required, though our nurse may choose to numb the area to be treated with a cold pack or a topical numbing cream prior to injecting. You may want to close your eyes during the treatment if you are nervous around needles.
Length of Time for the Treatment:
A typical procedure takes approximately 30 minutes.
After the Treatment:
You should feel fine to go about your day following your Juvéderm® treatment, though you may experience temporary bruising and/or swelling following the treatment and if you use substances that can prolong bleeding, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, you may experience increased bruising or bleeding at the injection site. Juvéderm® can be used with caution in people on immunosuppressive therapy or therapy used to decrease the body’s immune response. The most common side effects are temporary injection-site redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, firmness, lumps and bumps, and bruising. Exposure of the treated area to excessive sun or extreme cold weather should be minimized until any initial swelling and redness have resolved. It is not advisable to have a laser treatment, chemical peel, or other procedure based on active dermal response for up to two months following your Juvéderm® injection.
