Does your face look tired due to volume loss? Are you unhappy with some of your facial features? Do you want a natural solution to aging? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, you may be the perfect candidate for Juvederm fillers. At Advanced Dermatology Center in Wolcott, CT, we offer this popular line of dermal fillers that can lift, plump, and define the face while restoring natural volume to specific areas.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Juvederm?
Juvederm dermal fillers are an effective product for many different men and women. Because these fillers are so versatile, they can target and treat a range of different aesthetic concerns. From the signs of aging to aesthetic imperfections, there is a filler in this line that can treat every concern.
There are many different factors that determine who is a good candidate for this particular injectable. The area you want to treat, your health, and your expectations all contribute to whether or not this particular injectable is right for you.
Patients Who Are 18 or Older
One of the basic requirements for patients who want to undergo treatment with one of these dermal fillers is that they are 18 or older. Patients from all different age brackets choose this line of fillers to enhance their features and target the signs of aging.
Regardless of your concern or your aesthetic goal, as long as you are over the age of 18, we can evaluate your desired treatment area, confirm that you are a good treatment candidate, and then design the right treatment plan for you.
Patients With Healthy Skin
Another one of the basic requirements for treatment eligibility includes that your skin is healthy at the time of treatment. Patients who desire to undergo treatment with one of these fillers must have healthy skin free of inflammation or infection. If your skin does develop some type of irritation or information prior to your treatment, simply let our office know, and we will reschedule your appointment so that you can achieve the best results.
Patients Who Aren’t Allergic to the Ingredients in the Fillers
Another important prerequisite for this treatment is that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients in these fillers. For that reason, an initial consultation is required before beginning treatment. One of our experts will review your medical history to confirm that this is a safe and effective option for you and that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients in these fillers.
Patients Whose Skincare Treatments Just Aren’t Enough Anymore
If the signs of aging have affected your face to the point that your chemical peels, facials, anti-aging treatments, and at-home skincare regimen simply can’t give you the type of results you’re looking for, you may have experienced what experts call age-related mid facial volume loss. As you age, your body produces less hyaluronic acid, an important substance that helps keep the skin youthful.
With the body’s slowed production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid as you age, your skin experiences volume loss that can affect different areas of the face. If you’ve noticed volume loss that can’t be improved by in-office treatments and skincare, it may be time to take your beauty routine to the next level and choose a Juvederm filler that can help restore volume in a way that treatments and products cannot.
Patients Who Are Committed to the Treatment Process
Those who are committed to everything that this treatment process involves will make good candidates for Juvederm Fillers. Scheduling a consultation, listening to an injector’s recommendations, and moving forward with the treatment plan are all first steps in this process. Following the aftercare directives and scheduling follow-up treatments once you notice a change in your results are also important parts of this treatment process.
At your initial consultation, we will provide you with more information about the fillers, make recommendations, and help you understand each aspect of the treatment process so that you can walk into your injection appointment prepared and ready to experience some incredible results.
Patients Who Want To Correct Facial Folds, Lines, and Wrinkles
If you are looking for a way to smooth facial folds, lines, and wrinkles, you may be the perfect candidate for a filler from this particular collection. Juvederm has two different fillers that can smooth facial folds, lines, and wrinkles.
These lines include marionette lines, smile lines, nasolabial folds, and other lines that form around the mouth and extend from the nose to as far as the chin as a result of volume loss. These fillers will inject immediate volume into the area to smooth those creases, lines, and folds and help restore a youthful glow to your appearance.
Patients Who Want To Improve Your Chin Profile
One of the more recent options that Juvederm now offers patients is the opportunity to enhance their chin profile. If you’ve never been a huge fan of your chin profile, there is a filler from this collection that can be injected deep into the chin to enhance the area and create new, aesthetically pleasing contours.
Patients Whose Cheeks Need a Lift
As you age, your cheeks begin to flatten as a result of volume loss, which can give your face an aged-looking appearance. There are fillers in this collection that can be injected into strategic areas of the face to lift the cheeks and restore fullness to the area to make you look and feel like your younger self again, and maybe even better. Fillers injected to treat the cheeks can last up to two years with optimal treatment.
Patients Who Want Fuller Lips
Full lips are on-trend, and that will not change anytime soon. If you want to augment your lips or even correct aesthetic imperfections with your lips, there are fillers from this collection that can do exactly that. Whether you want to enhance your upper lip, your bottom lip, or both, we can choose the right filler for you that will give you natural yet noticeable results.
These fillers can also smooth lip lines that form around the mouth due to volume loss and the aging process and can also restore volume to lips that have thinned with the aging process. However, if you simply want bigger lips and have not experienced any other signs of aging, we can find the right filler that can help you reach your goals.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Are These Fillers Made of?
Juvederm dermal fillers are made of a crystal clear synthetic gel form of hyaluronic acid. This gel formulation is injected just below the skin’s surface to deliver immediate volume. It blends well with the skin’s structure because it contains a primary ingredient that is identical to one that your body creates naturally. Thanks to a careful manufacturing process, you can rest assured that these fillers are safe and will deliver natural-looking results.
Is the Treatment Process Painful?
This treatment process is minimally invasive because it does require an injection, but the injectable is fitted with a very thin needle which makes the injection process seamless and virtually painless.
However, if you’re not a fan of needles or you’re concerned about your comfort, we can apply a topical numbing solution to your skin pre-treatment so that you do not feel anything. It’s important to note that all of these fillers are formulated with a numbing agent called lidocaine, which also helps promote optimal comfort during the injection process and in the hours following your treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most patients only need one treatment to achieve results. However, once we evaluate your specific desired treatment area, we can give you a better idea of what your treatment plan will look like. Once you begin to notice a change in your results several months to a year or more after your injection, all you have to do is schedule a follow-up treatment to maintain the most consistent looking results long-term.
When Will I Notice Results?
As soon as one of our injectors administers the filler to your treatment area, you will see immediate results. However, it will take several days, typically a week, for your final results to appear. As the filler blends with your skin’s structure, you’ll have a better idea of what your final results will look like.
How Long Will Those Results Last?
Once you receive treatment, you can expect long-lasting results. Different fillers from this collection deliver different length results based on the formulation, its thickness, particle size, and the area into which it is injected. Highly mobile areas of the face tend to require follow-up treatment sooner than those that are not as mobile.
However, regardless of where you want to be treated and which formulation is used to treat your face, you can expect your results to last anywhere from six months to two years based on the filler and the rate at which your body metabolizes the product.
Can I Combine These Fillers With Other Treatments?
Juvederm fillers can be combined with other treatments, and you can also use multiple fillers from this line to target specific areas of your face at the same appointment. Our goal is to help you reach your aesthetic goals as quickly as possible, and we know that your time is valuable, so we will make every effort to administer your desired treatments during the same session.
These fillers can be used in combination with Botox as well as other skincare treatments. You may need to wait a few weeks before scheduling a specific skin care treatment based on your treatment area. Your injector will provide you with details about aftercare once your injection appointment is complete.
Is There Any Downtime?
As soon as your treatment is over, you’ll be able to resume most of your normal daily activities. You won’t have to take time off work, but instead, you can go back to work once your treatment is over.
You will need to follow some aftercare instructions like avoiding intense exercise for 24 hours, avoiding blood-thinning medications, and avoiding hot temperatures. Your injector will provide you with a complete list of aftercare instructions that will help ensure that your results turn out perfectly.
