Your most important Questions answered
What are dermal fillers such as Juvederm?
Without the scientific rationale, we could easily mistake these for a small miracle that our super happy clients rave about. Dermal fillers are a soft injectable gel consisting of stabilized, non-animal hyaluronic acid. The gel is tissue-friendly and closely resembles the hyaluronic acid that exists naturally in the body. Dermal filler treatments are widely used in medical aesthetics to add volume, plump up and reduce the appearance of line and folds. We are committed to providing the most natural approach to fillers so you get that beautiful and refreshed look.
What is Hyaluronic Acid? Is it Safe?
Yes, it is safe and a good thing! The FDA approved Juvederm in 2006 and it has been used safely since then. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that occurs naturally in the human body and is central to regulating cell growth and renewal. HA has impact on number of functions in the body, some of which are to bind water, lubricate the movable parts of the body such as muscles and joints and to maintain the elasticity of the skin. The Juvéderm advantage is that its supple gel consistency provides a more natural-looking appearance/
What Areas Can Juvederm or Dermal Fillers be used for?
If you have noticed signs of aging, you are not alone. Dermal filler treatments are used to treat age related concerns. Fillers can smooth away facial lines and wrinkles, create fuller lips and shape facial contours, such as cheeks and chin, and revitalize the skin.
What are the different types of Juvederm?
Juvederm XC and Juvederm Vollure XC address the loss of skin elasticity. They fill out wrinkles and lines around the mouth and nose.
Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Volbella XC work as non-surgical lip enhancement treatments. Juvederm Voluma XC adds volume beneath the skins surface to increase the size of the cheeks.
What are the most common areas used for Dermal Fillers such as Juvederm?
Some of the more common areas treated include: Nasolabial folds (lines between the nose and corner of the mouth), Marionette lines (from the corner of the mouth downwards), Lips (Enhancing the shape, definition and volume of lips)
How long do the effects of the treatments last?
One of the great advantages of dermal filler treatment is that the effects are long lasting but not permanent. Duration depends on many factors, such as the area treated, individual’s skin type, skin condition lifestyle and age. Generally the effects can last between 6-12 months.
Do I need any Pain Relief after a Treatment?
Some clients may experience the treatment as a mild discomfort. Many dermal fillers have a local anaesthetic available which can ease any discomfort. We also use local anaesthetic creams which are applied 30 minutes or so prior to treatment, which will ease any discomfort. Your comfort is our number one priority.
