JUVÉDERM® consists of a hyaluronic acid gel that is smooth in consistency. This acid naturally occurs in the skin and provides hydration and volume. Dermal fillers are considered one of the most effective non-surgical cosmetic treatments available, and the Juvederm family of fillers are some of the most popular.
How Does Juvederm Work?
Dr Bonillas will asses the areas of your face you would like to regain volume. Once he has determined which areas will gently ease the JUVÉDERM® gel under the skin in the desired targeted area. The injectable gel will instantly smooth away folds and wrinkles, as well as restore volume to the skin.
JUVÉDERM® creates a natural look and feel, restoring your smooth skin. You will achieve a new look everyone is sure to notice.
If you have experienced volume loss, lines and wrinkles, or sagging skin due to age, then a Juvederm filler may be a good choice for you. Juvederm will provide 9 to 12 months of corrections to moderate to sever facial wrinkles or folds. When compared with other collagen-based fillers, studies have shown with JUVÉDERM® produces superior results.
One of the great things about dermal fillers is the results are immediate.
The Juvederm Scottsdale filler begins to plump your skin and smooth your wrinkles as soon as Dr. Bonillas injects it. Within seconds you and the doctor can determine if you want more volume or if the amount injected is enough. While you may encounter some initial swelling and bruising, this will heal quickly. Using supplements such as arnica can help recover from the bruising more quickly.
If you opt for Juvederm in the lips, it may take up to two weeks to see your final results and may face some moderate swelling for a few days. Try not to worry if your lips seem bigger than you had originally wanted for the first week or two, it’s likely just swelling.
