If you are in the market for a way to look younger and refreshed, consider JUVÉDERM®. This non-surgical treatment is quickly becoming one of the most popular options here in Tampa. If you have been wondering how this treatment works and whether or not it is right for you, we can hopefully answer your questions below. This article is designed to tackle some of the most common questions we get about this popular cosmetic procedure.
What Is JUVÉDERM® and How Does It Work?
JUVÉDERM® is an injectable filler that is designed to smooth out wrinkles. There is lidocaine right in the injection to help you stay comfortable during your treatment. It is based on hyaluronic acid. While there are many fillers out there that use hyaluronic acid, JUVÉDERM® stands out because it is a smooth gel. It leaves you with very natural yet noticeable results. The hyaluronic acid in the injection gives you instant results. It also helps attract more moisture to the area, taking your improvements to the next level. One of the greatest things about this treatment is that it is safe for all skin types and tones.
How Long Do Results Last with JUVÉDERM® in Tampa?
JUVÉDERM® stands out from the competition because the results can last for up to one year. This is due to the unique way the hyaluronic acid molecules are linked. How long it lasts will depend on the area you have treated. It typically does not last as long in the lips because they move more and have more blood flow. Still, improvements can last for six months plus when JUVÉDERM® is injected into the lips.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
JUVÉDERM® is actually a family of fillers, each specially formulated to treat a different area of the face. It can lift your cheeks, plump up your lips, and smooth out vertical lip lines and parentheses lines. There are five different fillers we can use. The first step is to sit down at a consultation where we can discuss your aesthetic desires and create a treatment plan.
What Are the Treatments Like?
When you visit our office here in Tampa, the first step is to discuss your medical history and goals for treatment. Each filler in the line has lidocaine in it to help you stay comfortable. If desired, a topical numbing cream or ice can be used to numb the area prior to beginning. The actual injections take anywhere from 15 minutes to 60 minutes depending on the size and number of areas being treated. After your injections, there is no downtime.
