Finally, there’s a way to reduce the appearance of smile lines. JUVEDERM® is an FDA-Approved compound used to minimize the appearance of all types of smile lines that appear with age. Allenby Cosmetic Dermatology offers Juvederm injections for both men and women in the Delray Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, and Palm Beach area looking for a non-surgical way to rejuvenate the appearance of their faces.

 

The Common Signs of Facial Aging

 

There are three basic facial lines that form on a person’s face: Perpendicular Lip Lines, where lines form between the nose and lips, Marionette Lines running perpendicular around the corners of the mouth, and Nasolabial Folds that form below the nose and run perpendicular to the corners of the mouth.

These lines are sometimes called smile lines or parentheses, and if you’re tired of seeing those facial lines, JUVEDERM® can help you reclaim a more youthful-looking face.

What is JUVEDERM®?

 

JUVEDERM® is a sugar compound found in the body known as hyaluronic acid. This acid regulates cell development and renewal and also has the ability to attach to water molecules. When hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin it gives it a fuller look which reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the surface.

 

How JUVEDERM® Works

 

When we are young, our skin has an abundance of hyaluronic acid; however, as we age the amount of hyaluronic acid begins to fade allowing wrinkles and folds to form. To help restore the lost hyaluronic acid, JUVEDERM® is injected into the skin providing the lost hydration. As a result, the wrinkles and fine lines are reduced or even eliminated.

Am I a Good Candidate for JUVEDERM®?

 

The best candidates for a JUVEDERM® injection are people who want a less invasive option to treat moderate to harsh signs of aging. It is beneficial for those who want to resume their daily activities after the treatment, since it is a lunchbreak treatment that requires no downtime.

Pregnant people should wait until after childbirth before getting a JUVEDERM® injection. There is no research regarding whether JUVEDERM® is safe for pregnant women, so it is best to wait after pregnancy to ensure safety and maintain good overall health.

 

Your JUVEDERM® Consultation

 

A JUVEDERM® consultation involves a conversation about your appearance goals and complete medical history. We will help you visualize the possible results of a JUVEDERM® injection to set realistic goals. An evaluation of your medical history will help us determine if JUVEDERM® is safe for your overall health.

 

How to Prepare for a JUVEDERM® Treatment

 

To prepare for the JUVEDERM® injections, you will be asked to stop drinking alcohol for at least 48 hours before and after the treatment.

If you are taking anti-inflammatory medication, blood-thinning medication, or herbal supplements like vitamin E, fish oil, and gingko biloba, we will ask you to take a break from these to avoid excessive bruising or swelling.

Before a JUVEDERM® injection, avoid retinols and anti-aging serums. This will prevent skin irritation after the treatment.

 

What to Expect After Your JUVEDERM® Treatment

 

The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes and the recovery time is minimal. You can even have the procedure done during your lunch break. Some redness and mild swelling may occur around the injection sites but should dissipate quickly.

While JUVEDERM® injections do produce noticeable changes instantly, it can take some time to see the full results of your treatment. It takes some time for the product to settle into the skin. Most patients will see the full results of their JUVEDERM® injections around two weeks after their treatment. The effects of the treatment can last up to 12 months.

 

JUVEDERM® Cost

 

Cost can vary based on factors like the number of areas being treated with JUVEDERM® and the amount of product needed to attain the patient’s desired results. Questions about price and payment options can be answered during the consultation process.

SAFETY CONCERNS

 

The side effects of JUVEDERM® are minimal and usually include redness, tenderness, bumps and bruising around the injection site. There can also be pain, swelling, itching and discoloration. There is a mild risk of infection.
