If you’re dissatisfied with the appearance of deep facial wrinkles or folds, Juvederm® can help. Juvederm is an FDA-approved injectable filler used correct moderate to severe signs of facial aging by boosting skin elasticity and hydration.
Juvederm is one of many anti-aging treatments available at Beyond Beautiful. Through advanced techniques, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sherif Khattab can erase physical signs of aging without surgery.
Juvederm is safe for use on all skin types and tones and is an ideal for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, crow’s feet and wrinkles between the eyes, nasolabial folds (wrinkles between the nose and mouth), as well as fine lines and wrinkles around the lips. It can also be used to plump up volume deficient areas on your face such as your cheeks or underneath your eyes.
Ideal candidates should be motivated to improve their appearance and possess realistic expectations of what Juvederm can accomplish. Juvederm is not recommended for people who have active skin infections, or those who have had a previous allergic reaction to any of the ingredients in Juvederm.
Ideal for patients not ready for a surgical facelift, this filler provides an immediate yet subtle cheek lift and restores a youthful appearance. Although injected deeper than other fillers, it is formulated with a numbing medication which prevents discomfort. Results last up to two years.
The consultation: In order to determine if you are good candidate for Juvederm, you will need to be honest and upfront about every aspect of your health. Your consultation will include an exam, as well as a discussion of your medical history and cosmetic goals. This information will help Dr. Khattab determine if Juvederm is the right choice for you.
Procedure: Prior to treatment, your face will be cleansed with an antiseptic. If you are particularly uncomfortable with injection pain, a numbing agent may be applied to the treatment areas. Using a fine needle, Dr. Khattab will carefully inject Juvederm beneath your skin at pre-discussed treatment sites.
Recovery: Immediately following treatment, your skin may feel fuller than normal. You may also experience some temporary swelling or redness. There is no downtime required following treatment, but Dr. Khattab may recommend that you abstain from alcoholic beverages or strenuous exercise during the evening following your procedure.
Results: Once injected, Juvederm works by replacing the depleted supplies of hyaluronic acid beneath your skin. Only one treatment is needed for noticeable improvements. Juvederm will eventually be metabolized by your body, but the results of treatment can last for 6 months or longer. Repeat treatments will maintain your results long-term.
