People tend to develop displeasing signs of aging over time, typically as a result of facial volume loss and skin laxity. Other aesthetic concerns, such as a lack of definition or naturally thin lips, can also create a displeasing appearance. Many may assume that invasive surgery is the only answer for their cosmetic needs, but there are non-surgical solutions that provide instant and natural-looking rejuvenation.
Dermal fillers, for example, deliver immediate refreshing results without incisions or significant risks. JUVÉDERM® is a versatile line of injectable dermal fillers that are designed to smooth the skin, soften wrinkles, replenish lost volume, and lift sunken features. This gel formula is made of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid and can support the structure of the skin, producing conservative enhancement.
The JUVÉDERM® Advantage
JUVÉDERM® comes with several advantages, making it a superior facial rejuvenation option for patients who desire a youthful aesthetic without undergoing an invasive procedure. It is also a perfect choice for those who want to achieve a more attractive appearance without a lengthy recovery. It is especially convenient during the warmer months when many individuals have busy social schedules.
JUVÉDERM® can address a range of imperfections, making treatment entirely customizable to each patient’s unique case. The process is quick and delivers immediate, long-lasting improvement, which is ideal for patients on-the-go.
Each JUVÉDERM® product targets specific areas of concern. At Hotchandani Laser, Vein, and Cosmetic Surgery, patients can choose from the following JUVÉDERM® formulas for their unique objectives:
- JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC: mild-to-moderate parentheses lines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, thinning lips
- JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC: vertical lip lines, thin or thinning lips
- JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC: cheek volume loss, lack of cheek definition, prominent veins and tendons on the back of the hands
- JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC: moderate-to-severe parentheses, nasolabial folds
The Treatment Experience
Treatment with JUVÉDERM® normally takes less than 30 minutes to complete. At Hotchandani Laser, Vein, and Cosmetic Surgery, we use cold spray and lidocaine during injectable treatments. As a result, most patients report minimal discomfort during the procedure. Post-treatment sensitivity or swelling should subside considerably within a few days.
Most daily activities can be continued right after treatment, but it may be recommended to avoid strenuous exercise or heavy lifting for the first 24 hours of recovery. Depending on the type of JUVÉDERM® formula used, results can last between six months and two years before a touch-up appointment is needed.
Candidates for JUVÉDERM®
Patients may consider JUVÉDERM® if they struggle with unsightly facial creases and volume loss in the hands or face. This treatment is ideal for patients at least 21 years of age who have no known allergies to gram-positive bacterial proteins or lidocaine. Those who have scheduled a JUVÉDERM® treatment appointment must refrain from taking anti-inflammatory medications or supplements to avoid excessive bleeding or prolonged bruising following treatment.
JUVÉDERM® can produce immediate facial rejuvenation effects and restore a more alluring aesthetic for most patients. To schedule a complimentary consultation, please call our Green Bay location at 920-497-9996 or our Appleton location at 920-738-6666.
