Juvederm® in Denver, CO
Juvederm® is a dermal filler designed to restore volume to your skin. We use it to correct nasolabial folds and other age-related concerns such as moderate to severe wrinkles.
Juvederm is made with hyaluronic acid, a natural component of your body’s connective tissue. By restoring hyaluronic acid to your tissue, those unwanted smile lines and parentheses will disappear.
Juvederm is FDA approved for treating facial wrinkles and folds. Therefore, Dr. Hunsicker may recommend it for the treatment of:
- Thin or wrinkled lips
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Prejowl area.
Men and women of all skin types can safely undergo treatment with Juvederm.
How We Perform Juvederm Treatment
Before your Juvederm treatment, you will meet with Dr. Hunsicker to discuss your goals. An allergy test won't be needed prior to treatment, because the gel is made with bio-compatible ingredients.
During treatment, Dr. Hunsicker injects the Juvederm into specific areas of the face in a short outpatient procedure. The injections only take about 30 minutes or so, depending on how many areas you want treated.
Juvederm XC is formulated with lidocaine, which is a numbing agent. This makes the injections more comfortable, and usually eliminates the need for a topical numbing cream. After your injections, Dr. Hunsicker will briefly massage your face to make sure that the gel is evenly distributed.
When will I see results and how long do they last?
You will see the results of your treatment immediately. Juvederm treatment is long-lasting, but not permanent. Eventually, your body will absorb the hyaluronic acid in the gel. You should see the results of Juvederm for up to one year following your treatment.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based filler that, when injected, reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face, like nasolabial folds.
What is the difference between Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC?
Juvederm Ultra XC is used for most common facial wrinkles and folds, while Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is ideal for treating deeper facial wrinkles and folds.
How long do the effects of the Juvederm treatment last?
The diminished wrinkles you experience following your Juvederm treatment can last up to one year. As your body absorbs the Juvederm solution, you may wish to schedule touch-up treatments to maintain the effect.
Are there side effects with Juvederm?
The Juvederm injections may cause bruising, or a mild swelling in the treated area. This can cause your lips or face to look a bit fuller than expected immediately following treatment. This swelling improves rapidly, and you will see the true results of your treatment once that occurs. You can ice the treated area during the 24 hours after your treatment to reduce swelling.
After your treatment, you should avoid alcohol, exercise, and prolonged exposure to sunlight for 24 hours. After this, you’re free to return to your normal routine and enjoy the results of your treatment.
