Am I A Good Candidate for Juvederm?

Dermal fillers are a popular treatment option for those who are concerned about the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and small skin folds on the face. These typically occur around the corners of the mouth, near the eyes and along the top of the nose bridge. Unlike abrasive resurfacing techniques, dermal fillers plump up the affected area and add volume. Juvederm® is a product we highly recommend because it contains hyaluronic acid, which is a natural sugar compound. Hyaluronic acid helps the body hold in moisture where it is needed most. This results in firmer skin, with the fine wrinkles becoming all but unnoticeable. If you are looking for a non-surgical means to smooth out facial wrinkles, we suggest you learn more about Juvederm® and if you are a suitable candidate for this simple cosmetic procedure.

The Best Candidates for Juvederm®

Juvederm® is not a skin medication or a nourishing product. However, it does act to plump up the skin’s surface, eliminating folds that occur because the skin is sagging. A loss of collagen production can happen anytime during the adult years, and it results in poor tissue support for the skin layers.

When collagen production decreases, the skin becomes wrinkled because it is resting on tissue that no longer pushes it up and out. The best candidates for Juvederm® treatment are those individuals who are experiencing fine wrinkling not caused by brittle skin. Skin that has been damaged by overexposure to the sun or from other environmental factors may want to consider other treatments.

How The Procedure Works

Juvederm® is a specially formulated compound that consists of hyaluronic acid mixed with a gel. Unlike some of the other dermal fillers available, Juvederm® is not grainy but is instead a malleable, consistency gel. It is easily injected beneath the skin and holds its consistency well. It stays in place for quite a while, and all the time it is present beneath the skin, moisture is drawn to the area because of how the natural solution stimulates the body to respond. During your consultation at Spa Black, we will examine your face and determine if this treatment is right for you. The entire procedure takes only minutes. Most of our patients report little or no discomfort during the injection procedure.

After The Treatment Is Complete

The hyaluronic acid begins to work immediately. The plumping becomes noticeable even after just one day. We recommend staying out of the sun for a day or two after treatment. The plumping effect usually lasts for about nine months. However, subsequent treatments use less of the product because the treated area usually doesn’t completely shrink in volume.
