Are you unhappy with the way your face has aged? If you’re looking for a lasting solution, then you might want to consider a dermal filler like Juvederm. Here’s what you need to know when you get this dermal filler at Allure Enhancement Center in Lafayette, LA.
Does Juvederm Look Natural?
When people consider getting dermal fillers like this one, many of them are worried about how natural their results will look. You might be wary about looking like your face is plastic or people noticing that you’ve had some work done. The idea of navigating uncomfortable questions from friends and family probably isn’t a welcome one.
But when you get this dermal filler and you visit a qualified practitioner to apply the product, you can expect to get completely natural-looking results. You’ll love how much more confident you feel in your skin with a safe and effective dermal filler like Juvederm.
Why Do We Get Wrinkles?
Before we can get into what exactly this filler will do for you, we need to talk about why your skin changes in the first place. Changes to the texture and appearance of your skin are completely natural, but that doesn’t mean they’re welcoming.
As you get older, your body loses amounts of important proteins like collagen and elastic. This prevents your skin from staying elastic and “bouncing back” into place when you make facial expressions. This causes wrinkles to form, as does volume loss in the face.
What Exactly Is Juvederm?
If you’re thinking of getting this filler to help your face feel more youthful, then you’re probably wondering what it is exactly and how it works. This filler is applied to the desired areas of your skin using a fine and precise needle.
There are several different types of this product. All of them are formulated with the main ingredient hyaluronic acid. This is an ingredient that you can find naturally in various parts of your body, including your skin, eyes, and your body’s connective tissues. When it’s injected into the skin, this filler takes up space, providing fullness and smoothing out loose skin.
What Types of Juvederm Are There?
Depending on your goals, your dermatologist will use one or more of the different types of this product.
This formula is generally used specifically for the cheek area. Your cheeks tend to have a noticeable loss in volume the older you get. This can make you look much older than you are, and in some cases, it may even make you look gaunt or sickly.
When Voluma is injected into your cheeks, it will put some of that youthful fullness back into your face, allowing you to feel more confident in your appearance.
One of the areas where it’s most common to see wrinkling and volume loss is the area around your mouth. Your mouth moves a lot throughout the day. When you speak, laugh, smile, frown, or make any kind of expression, all of this movement builds up over time in the form of wrinkles.
You may have noticed lines on either side of your mouth, also called smile lines. You can get the Vollure formula injected into the area to put more volume into the area and smooth out the wrinkling that you’re seeing there.
Are you concerned about the appearance of your lips? As you get older, you’re likely to experience volume loss in the lip area. Unfortunately, thin lips can drastically affect your appearance and make you look more severe than you are. You may also have naturally thin lips or lips that are uneven.
Volbella is specifically designed to add volume back to the lips. So, if you have naturally thin lips or the volume in your lips has decreased with age, this formula is perfect for you. It’s also a highly effective way to even out uneven lips.
1. How Do I Prepare for Treatment?
Getting ready for your treatment is a very easy process. The first thing you will need to do is book a consultation with your practitioner. During this time, you’ll go over your goals and set realistic expectations for what your results will be like.
Your doctor will also give you specific instructions on preparing for your injections. You will need to avoid things that can act as blood thinners like St. John’s wort, alcohol, and cigarettes. Doing this will help prevent bruising and allow your skin to heal quickly. Make sure to also inform your doctor if you have any sensitivities.
2. What Is Treatment Like?
If the idea of getting injections is a frightening one, you don’t need to worry. The process of applying the Juvederm formula you’ve selected is easy and near-painless. This is why it’s such a popular treatment option for common aging concerns.
Your practitioner will begin by thoroughly cleaning the areas where the injections will be applied. Once the areas are prepared, they will use a very fine needle to inject the product. You may feel a slight pinching sensation but shouldn’t experience any more pain than this.
3. What Happens After the Injections?
Recovery after getting these injections is extremely easy. You’ll be able to get back to your normal life as soon as your appointment is done. Over the next couple of days, there are just a few things that you will need to be mindful of.
For instance, you should stay out of direct sunlight. You’ll also want to avoid applying makeup or doing any strenuous physical activity. Your dermatologist may have some additional recommendations for you. Make sure you take their advice seriously so you can enjoy the full effects of your treatment.
4. What Are the Side Effects?
One of the biggest benefits of seeking out this treatment option over something like a surgical procedure is that there are very few side effects. The product’s main ingredient is something that you find naturally in your skin anyway. And, since all that’s used is a very fine needle, minimal healing needs to take place afterward.
In the days after your injections, you may notice some minor swelling or redness. These side effects will go away on their own naturally. As long as you visit a qualified practitioner like those at our clinic, you shouldn’t experience any major side effects.
5. How Long Does It Last?
One of the downsides of many dermal fillers is that they may not last as long as you wish they did. Some injectables may only last for a few weeks at most! If you’re looking for something long-lasting, however, Juvederm is a great option.
You should see results fairly quickly after your initial injections. More importantly, you’ll get to enjoy them for a long time. As long as you care properly for your skin after treatment, depending on the area where it’s been injected you can expect to enjoy results for up to 1 to 2 years.
6. When Will I See Results?
If you’re looking to get a more youthful appearance, then you can consider options like surgical procedures. However, surgical procedures can have a lengthy and uncomfortable recovery process which limits your ability to enjoy results quickly.
Instead, consider getting a dermal filler like this one. As soon as it’s injected, you’ll see a difference in the appearance of your skin as the product takes up space beneath it. Over the course of the next week or so, you will continue to see noticeable changes in the way your skin looks.
7. Does It Hurt?
Pain is an important factor to consider when you’re thinking about getting any type of treatment. Many people get nervous about seeking out cosmetic treatments because they’re worried that the process is going to hurt, or that recovery will be painful.
When you get this dermal filler injected into your skin, your practitioner will use a very fine needle. You should experience no pain during this process, though you may feel a small pinching sensation. The recovery process should also be pain-free. If you do feel any pain, notify your practitioner right away, as this is not normal.
