In our practice the primary Dermal Filler used is Juvederm. Juvederm is a crystal clear gel made of hyaluronic acid. This substance holds water, hydrates and gives volume to the skin. As we age the amount of natural hyaluronic acid diminishes. A simple injection of Juvederm replenishes skin volume and improves your appearance by enhancing your profile, creating fuller lips and smoothing lines and wrinkles.
Juvederm adds volume to your skin while leaving your face with a natural expression. Juvederm is non permanent, and is absorbed naturally over time, this means that you can choose when to have further treatment to maintain the effect.
Juvederm treatment usually takes about 30 minutes and there is no need for any pre testing. Juvederm treatment in the rooms generally requires the injection of a local anesthetic prior to the injection. The numbness from the local anesthetic typically lasts approximately 1 hour. Most patients can return to their normal activities.
The results will be immediate and the results will typically last 6 months to over 1 year. The length of time Juvederm lasts is specific to each individual and the area treated.
Juvederm has been used world wide in over 6 million treatments and more than 70 countries. It has an outstanding safety track record.
Many people use a combination of Dermal Fillers and other procedures. Mr Klein will advise you as to whether or not you will receive a better result if Juvederm is combined with another procedure.
