Juvederm in Vancouver
Do you feel your face has lost volume and is becoming saggy?
Are your natural facial lines becoming excessively deep or pronounced?
Over time, the amount of natural hyaluronic acid in our skin decreases, reducing the bulk between the skin cells, and giving rise to facial wrinkles. Juvederm is a filler that consists of hyaluronic acid which acts to fill and plump up your skin.
When injected into specific areas of your facial skin Juvederm augments your body’s own hyaluronic acid, and combines with water present in the skin to smooth wrinkles or plump up your lips. No skin test is needed. Juvederm injectables can be used to treat your frown lines, smile lines, acne scars and to enhance your lips. The treatment takes approximately 30 minutes and the results are immediately apparent. Prior to treatment for wrinkles, a topical anesthetic is applied to diminish discomfort.
For the majority of our patients, 50-80% of the effect remains after 9 months. As the filler gel breaks down, water takes its place. The less concentrated the gel becomes, the more water it is able to bind. That’s why these hyaluronic acid-based products have such a long lasting effect. Correction of your wrinkles and enhanced lip appearance will subside gradually until the skin looks like it did before your treatment. Most patients benefit from a touch up when they feel the effect is starting to wear off.
A complimentary consultation with our aesthetic injector, will assist you in choosing a treatment plan. You’ll benefit from a careful and complete discussion of indications and possible side effects.
