The human face is one of the first places that age begins to show itself. With the passage of time and plenty of frowning and smiling, lines begin to show on our faces. They usually start out as temporary lines that disappear when we are at rest but gradually become permanent and then more pronounced over time. No one can stop time from moving forward but thanks to modern medicine there are cosmetic treatments that can revitalize the skin of the face, allowing people to look years younger and more vivacious. One such treatment is Hesperia Juvederm.
What Is Juvederm?
As opposed to Botox which is a refined byproduct of the bacterium bacterium Clostridium botulinum, Juvederm is an injectable filler designed to eliminate lines and wrinkles on the face. Juvederm works to replace the hyaluronic acid that human skin loses with age. In doing so wrinkles and lines, especially those on the brow and forehead disappear. The secret to Juvederm is a manufacturing process known as Hylacross technology. This process is what gives the filler it's smooth consistency.
Seeing And Maintaining Results
Juvederm patients normally begin to see noticeable results just as soon as the swelling that may accompany injections subsides; generally speaking this is two to three weeks post treatment. Once results become visible they are usually dramatic results and patients report looking years younger at this stage of treatment.
Like all anti-aging treatments, Juvederm is a temporary solution, albeit an effective one, to a permanent problem. Most patients that discontinue treatments report that their lines and wrinkles become noticeable again anywhere from 9 to 12 months from their last treatment. Most professionals recommend patients return for follow up injections prior to that time frame so as to preserve their smooth and more youthful appearance.
Patients new to Health First Medical Weight Loss & Skin Care will first meet with our resident physician in order to have their overall health assessed. Once a patient is deemed both healthy and a good candidate for Juvederm, treatments can begin right away. Injections are handled gently and are performed quickly so there is no long wait or delay in their day. Injections are virtually pain free with the vast majority of patients reporting feeling no more than a slight pinch or pressure.
Post Treatment Support
Health First Medical Weight Loss & Skin Care values the health and well being of its clients above all else. It is for this reason that our team is always available for support after receiving injections. Questions and concerns can be addressed and a patients most recent treatment can be inspected if an individual feels it isn't working as it should be. Customer satisfaction is important to us and by offering support after treatment has concluded we believe this helps foster trust and peace of mind in our patients.
Is Juvederm Safe?
Juvederm has been deemed safe by the FDA and is used as a soft tissue filler in additional medical procedures, particularly those associated with HIV treatments. Of course, as is the case with all medicine, some patients will experience some minor side effects. Fortunately the redness, bruising, and itching sometimes associated with Juvederm is minor and lasts no more than a few days.
