How Does Juvederm Work?


Juvederm is FDA approved skin filler made of hyaluronic acid that is used to reduce wrinkles. The use of Juvederm in Ottawa is rising in popularity since it is more effective and has longer lasting effects compared to other fillers.

Hyaluronic acid used in Juvederm rather than collagen has produced better results in plumping the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that doesn’t cause allergic reactions. It is created through biosynthesis in the laboratory.

All patients who want to improve their facial appearance through lip enhancement and reduction of facial lines are good candidates for Juvederm treatments. There’s minimal preparation required for the treatment with the only requirement being you are dissatisfied with your looks. Juvederm is not recommended for nursing mothers and pregnant women.

Juvederm treatments are best suited for all areas of the face and for facial contouring. The treatments are recommended for reducing facial lines and creases on the forehead, nose and around the mouth. Juvederm is also effective in enhancing the size and shape of your lips and improving the appearance of scars. The treatment is perfect for reversing the effects of aging on your facial skin.

People who have thinner skin and who have severe scarring will not enjoy the best results of treatment. The results of Juvederm are long lasting but are not permanent requiring other visits for subsequent treatment sessions.

The Treatment Procedure

Juvederm treatment is simple and straightforward and similar to that of other dermal fillers. Injections are made into the problem areas such as creases and wrinkles without problems or undue discomfort.

Juvederm injections are more comfortable compared to other fillers since it has a smooth gel consistency that makes it easier to administer. The smooth consistency ensures that Botox Ottawa Downtown can use thinner needles and lesser pressure in administering the injection and minimizing discomfort for patients. You can choose to have topical anesthetic cream to reduce discomfort associated with the injections. The typical Juvederm treatment session will take about thirty minutes.

The effects of treatment can last you anywhere between six and nine months enjoying the healthier and younger facial look. Juvederm treatment can be combined with Botox injections for more pronounced effects.

Botox Ottawa Downtown will tailor treatment to the specific needs of the patient to ensure that the best results are achieved in the restoration of youthful looks and enhancing the lips.
