Restore Youth and Vitality to Your Skin
Youthful skin has an abundance of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance responsible for facial volume and fullness. As we age, the hyaluronic acid in our skin naturally begins to dissipate, allowing for the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and facial folds. Fortunately, soft tissue fillers such as JUVÉDERM® can be used to replace this lost hyaluronic acid, restoring youthful volume and fullness to the face. If you feel you may benefit from JUVÉDERM® injectable treatments, contact one of our Phoenix-area practices, located in Sun City, Sun City West, and Wickenburg, today.
What Is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM ® is smooth-consistency gel that uses unique HYLACROSS™ technology to replace skin's hyaluronic acid, restoring volume while reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds. The injectable treatment is infused with lidocaine for patient comfort, and provides particularly effective treatment for wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth. JUVÉDERM® may also be used to sculpt the lips, creating a plumping effect while eliminating fine lines. JUVÉDERM®'s unique formula provides natural-looking results that last up to one year.
Patients who receive JUVÉDERM® injections at any of our Phoenix-area practices are often pleased to discover that the procedure is both quick and relatively painless. Because the injectable treatment contains lidocaine, an additional anesthetic is not typically necessary. However, for added comfort, Dr. Justo may use a numbing cream to further desensitize the area being treated.
Using a small needle, Dr. Justo will administer JUVÉDERM® through a series of injections. Typically, patients do not report feeling any sensation beyond the small pinprick associated with the injections. After the wrinkle-fighting gel has been eased under the skin, Dr. Justo may briefly massage the treated area. The entire injection procedure is usually completed within fifteen minutes.
The revitalizing results of your JUVÉDERM® injections will be visible immediately. And because JUVÉDERM® is a simple, non-surgical wrinkle treatment, facial rejuvenation is achieved without the need for recovery or downtime. In fact, some patients fit a JUVÉDERM® treatment into their lunch break, and return to work immediately thereafter.
Although redness, swelling, and tenderness may occur after injections of JUVÉDERM®, these mild side effects typically resolve within seven days. Patients will immediately notice rejuvenated skin with fewer wrinkles and a reduction in the appearance of facial folds. Just one JUVÉDERM® treatment is capable of providing younger-looking skin for up to one year, although supplemental touch-ups may be necessary in order to maintain optimal results.
