Juvéderm® is an injectable dermal filler that has been helping Arizona residents decrease the signs of aging on their face since its approval by the FDA in 2006. This non-surgical, non-invasive treatment can provide you with a fresher, rejuvenated appearance in just a few minutes, with no downtime afterwards. If you are considering Juvéderm®, it is important to work with a skilled cosmetic dermatologist who is experienced in injecting dermal fillers. Located in Tucson, Dr. Senait Dyson consistently provides natural, effective treatments to her patients.
Juvéderm® is able to smooth and soften facial lines, wrinkles, and acne scars by plumping up the targeted areas. During treatment, hyaluronic acid will be injected under depressions or crevices on the skin’s surface. This substance, which naturally occurs in our skin, muscles, and tendons, is able to absorb more than 1,000 its weight in water, thus providing added volume under the targeted area. Recent studies have shown that Juvéderm® also stimulates the production of collagen, the substance responsible for firmness and elasticity in our skin. The dual action of Juvéderm® provides long-lasting results for patients, regardless of skin type.
Juvéderm® is most commonly used to correct facial creases, such as nasolabial folds (the lines that run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth) and marionette lines (lines that run from the corners of them mouth downwards to the chin). Cosmetic dermatologists also inject Juvéderm® to decrease wrinkles around the upper lip, minimize the appearance of deep frown lines, and fill out acne scars. In some cases, Juvéderm® can be used to plump up the lips during a lip augmentation or fill under eye depressions to improve the appearance of under eye bags. Juvéderm® may be used to provide added volume to other areas on the face and body. During your initial consultation, our dermatologist will help you determine where Juvéderm® can safely be injected to help you achieve your goals.
A Juvéderm® treatment takes only a few minutes, with the length varying on the number of areas being treated. The injections are not very painful and most patients are able to resume normal activities immediately. After treatment, you may experience some swelling and bruising, which typically begins to decrease after 2 days. You will notice the initial effect of your treatment immediately afterwards, but final results will not be visible until all swelling has subsided and the hyaluronic acid has settled into its position. On average, the effects of Juvéderm® injections will last between 6 months and 1 year. It is safe to undergo future Juvéderm® injections to maintain or enhance your appearance.
It is important to identify a dermatologist who is highly experienced in providing Juvéderm® injections, as poor injection technique can lead to complications. Our Arizona doctor has developed her injection techniques to minimize risk of side effects and complications, while maximizing the outcome of the treatment. She is able to provide her patients with a natural look and avoid the appearance of looking overly done or plastic.
