Juvederm is a gel filler that instantly smooth away wrinkles around the mouth and nose. Juvederm is made of Hyaluronic Acid(HA) which adds volume and hydration to the skin. HA is a substance naturally occurring in the body. The gel is pre-mixed with Lidocaine to help with the comfort of the procedure and can be used in multiple areas of the lower face. A consultation with our specialist will help determine which areas to apply and how much should be used.
The body naturally has an abundance of the hydrating substance Hyaluronic Acid (HA). The normal aging process, sunlight, and other factors reduce the amount of HA found in the skin. This loss of HA causes the skin to lose structure and volume causing unwanted facial wrinkles and folds, such as the “parentheses lines” around the mouth.
Juvederm is a simple, nonsurgical wrinkle treatment with minimal recovery or downtime (and the results are instant). This convenient procedure allows you to set an appointment for treatment on the way home from work or the gym, or even while the kids are at soccer practice — and get right back to your daily routine. Before the treatment you will be advised to stop any medications that may thin the blood such as Aspirin or NSAIDS.
All patients at Millefiori are given a complete consultation and skin analysis on their first visit to the office. If you are a candidate for the procedure the provider (certified physician assistant) will examine the soft tissue of the face and to assess the depth of the wrinkle/folds. There are two different consistencies or thickness levels of Juvederm, so the provider will tailor a treatment to your unique skin volume needs.
To see instant results a pre and post photograph will be taken. An anesthetic is usually not needed for this procedure. The provider will ease the gel under the skin and into the area of the fold. The product is then gently massaged into place. The procedure is quick and easy with instant results! The injection itself usually only takes about 15-20 minutes.
