JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel
JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel results are smooth, natural and give you a more youthful look.
Facial wrinkles and creases begin to appear in your lips and skin as the underlying collagen and elastin fibers begin to break down and wear out. While this breakdown is part of the natural aging process, it can also result from excessive squinting, frowning, smiling, smoking and tanning. In the past, the most frequently used material for filling facial wrinkles and frown lines was injectable collagen. Recently, hyaluronic acid has exploded on the scene as the longer-lasting, more natural filler preferred by physicians worldwide.
Dr. Patricia Dickerson performs wrinkle filler injections with expertise and quality for patients from Centerville, Dayton, Middletown, Cincinnati, Columbus, Mason, West Chester and throughout Ohio with JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel, a natural, cross-linked, non-animal hyaluronic acid filler developed using biosynthesis.
How does JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel work?
Treatments are done in our office and take about 30 minutes and the result is immediate. JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel contains hyaluronic acid in the form of a crystal-clear gel. Unlike other fillers, it is supplied in densities – each one designed for a specific treatment area. Your doctor may use a mixture of densities to help you achieve your desired appearance.
JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is injected into the skin to create volume, resulting in a healthy and vital appearance. When injected into the lip it can restore a more natural look. In contrast to other implants, JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is not extracted from animals.
Fine lines in the forehead, “crow’s feet”, wrinkles between the eyes, on the cheeks and at the corners of the mouth, and deeper wrinkles on the cheeks and chin all respond well to JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel. Lip enhancement or a “pouting” lip can be achieved using JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel. This treatment also improves the vertical or “Smoker’s Lines” along the edges of the lip.
As with any cosmetic procedure, there are risks. However, you can mitigate these risks by going to an experienced, licensed professional.
It varies from individual to individual. The length of time your treatment will last depends on many factors such as your skin, your lifestyle and your age. Most patients find the effect remains after 9 months. However, the average lip treatment only lasts for about 6 months due to their higher blood flow. With a second procedure at 6-9 months, patients can see 18 months of improvement.
The great thing about JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is that you can replenish your natural beauty whenever you feel the need. Unlike permanent implants, JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel always leaves you a choice when the effect of the treatment has worn off. A touch-up can be performed any time you like after the previous treatment.
Furthermore, a face is constantly changing and beauty is best maintained by periodically evaluating the need for further treatment.
After Dr. Dickerson performs your JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel injections, normal activities can be resumed immediately. Discomfort is minimal. The treatment site may have a little swelling, which may last a few hours. There may be some slight bruising which can be covered with make-up. Depending on the area treated, correction usually lasts from 6 – 9 months.
The treatment is performed by injecting JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel under your skin. Since no pre-test is needed, the whole procedure takes less than 30 minutes. This skin sculpting can often be done with microcannulas to minimize bruising and reduce discomfort. Using this advanced technology, pain relief is generally not necessary. However, we do sell a numbing agent in our office if you’d prefer to use 40 minutes before your treatment.
