Understanding Juvéderm

Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid-based filler that is designed to increase facial volume and skin elasticity. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar in the skin that attracts moisture and keeps the skin hydrated, plump, and youthful. Juvéderm is a gel that is based on this natural substance, and it plumps the skin to smooth away wrinkles and creases, defines the cheekbones and other facial contours, and attractively plumps and fills the lips. 

Juvéderm comes in several different formulations, each uniquely designed to address different concerns. They all share the ability to smooth and plump the skin and achieve youthful rejuvenation.

The Way it Works

Juvéderm injections work to diminish moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles, folds, and fine lines through its primary active ingredient: hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a moisture-binding sugar molecule that occurs naturally in your body and is a major structural component of your skin. It acts as a hydrating agent and keeps the skin plump, strong, firm, and hydrated. This is why it’s known as the body’s “internal moisturizer”.

Determining Your Target

The highly effective Juvéderm product line treats a wide range of age-related facial skin concerns, including:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Skin laxity
  • Marionette lines
  • Loss of volume
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Melolabial folds
  • Glabellar lines

Who is a good candidate for Juvederm? 

Ideal candidates for Juvederm are physically and mentally healthy individuals with realistic expectations who are seeking a safe, non-invasive method of rewinding the clock on aging. They typically struggle with lines, wrinkles, and folds, a loss of fat volume, and minor skin laxity. Juvederm is often employed as part of a non-surgical facelift or rhinoplasty. The product is made with biocompatible hyaluronic acid, so allergic reactions are rare. The best way to determine your candidacy is to meet with our team for a private consultation, during which we will analyze your skin and ensure that Juvederm is the best option for achieving your unique aesthetic objectives.

Your Treatment Timetable

Our Oakland Juvéderm treatments are quick and convenient. The exact length of your session will depend on the number of injections you have and the target area’s size and condition. Unlike surgery, recovery time for Juvéderm is very minimal. You will need to avoid the following until we advise you otherwise:

Meeting Expectations

The results of Juvéderm are typically visible immediately after injection. Bruising and swelling, which can be reduced with ice, should subside within the next few days. The dermal filler is highly potent as the injection can last six to 18 months. Moving forward, your specialist may recommend supplemental treatments to achieve and maintain optimal correction of aesthetic concerns.

The step-by-step procedure of Juvéderm Injections

Before treatment, your Nubo Spa specialist will thoroughly clean the targeted skin with an antiseptic, and will then mark the injection sites. After preparation, a fine needle is gently inserted into the targeted area. The needle penetrates the surface layer and moves into deeper dermal layers to deliver the filler, adding volume and smoothening age-related wrinkles, fine lines, and folds. Because Juvéderm contains lidocaine to improve comfort, an anesthetic may not be needed. However, your physician can provide a topical anesthetic before injection on the area to be treated before giving the injection. 

Safe Procedures Still Come With Risks

Although Juvéderm products are is considered safe, there’s still the potential for side effects. They are usually limited to the injection site and include the following:

  • Redness
  • Pain or tenderness
  • Firmness
  • Swelling
  • Lumps or bumps
  • Bruising
  • Itching
  • Discoloration
  • Infection
