How it Works
What is JUVÉDERM®?
Approved in 2006, JUVÉDERM® is one of the most common nonsurgical procedures. The treatment uses a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler to address facial signs of aging. There are multiple products designed to target specific facial lines and wrinkles. We recommend Juvederm as it has a smoother, gel-like consistency, making it easier for the body to absorb and restore hydration and volume to the skin.
JUVÉDERM® is a minimally invasive procedure that uses microneedles to administer the hyaluronic acid into the treatment area gently. Injections only take a few minutes, and results can appear within a few hours following treatment.
Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body and stimulates the production of connective tissue that creates collagen, thereby adding volume to the skin. During the aging process, the body naturally starts to slow down hyaluronic acid production, and collagen will begin to decrease, causing wrinkling and sagging to occur.
Preparing for Your Appointment
For the best results, we recommend patients follow these tips to prepare for JUVÉDERM®:
- Avoid using blood-thinners like ibuprofen, Aleve, Motrin, and aspirin for at least one week before your visit.
- Avoid using the following supplements for one week; Vitamin E, Ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Gingko Biloba, Garlic, and Primrose Oil.
- Do not use retinoids and other anti-aging products for at least seven days before treatment.
- Do not wax, bleach, or tweeze the skin before treatment. Hair removal cream should be avoided for a week before treatment.
- Do not drink alcohol or smoke at least 24 hours before treatment.
If you have any concerns, please let our friendly staff know right away. We understand that everyone has different healthcare needs, so we ask that you provide us with as much information about specific health conditions you may have.
What to Expect
During your visit, we will identify target areas and draw small pen marks on the treatment areas (in some cases). We will gently inject JUVÉDERM® into the target areas and gently massage the skin to help spread the gel-like hyaluronic acid around and limit the risk of swelling. To reduce pain and discomfort, JUVÉDERM® includes a small amount of lidocaine. Our skilled and estheticians make the treatment relatively painless and enjoyable!
Following treatment, minor swelling, bruising, and redness may occur. If you experience serious side effects, including lumps, pain, and itching lasting more than a few days, call Regeneration Medical Spa to discuss your symptoms. We want to ensure the treatments are the right option to target your problematic wrinkles, fine lines, and aging!
After-Care Treatment of JUVÉDERM®
Following the treatment, we recommend all patients avoid strenuous activity, exposure to sunlight, and wearing makeup for at least 24 hours. Patients can care for their skin normally, and most patients see results within a few weeks. JUVÉDERM® is designed to last for at least six months to two years.
