The Juvederm procedure involves injecting hyaluronic acid dermal filler into the desired site to treate wrinkles, folds, and adds volume. The procedure is quite simple and similar to other injectable dermal fillers, providing minimal discomfort to the patient.
Before & After
Soft tissue fillers and facial shape and proportion in general are temporary. As we age, there are enzymes that break down our normal collagen and elastin as well as the hyaluronic acid sugar gels. Hyaluronidases are natural degradation sugar enzymes inside our bodies and cells that break down the product over time. Most patients who enjoy nice post-soft tissue contour and shape will return between once a year to once every year-and-a-half for volumization and restoration. Highly-animated areas, such as the lips, tend not to last as long as un-animated areas and require re-injection sooner.
The most common side effects include redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, discoloration, and risk of infection. If redness or swelling persists for more than a few days, please call your physician immediately. There is some minor pain, however our trained staff at SpaMedica in Toronto will work with you to help in managing the discomfort.
After Care Instructions
Juvederm post-treatment recommendations
- Avoid facial massages for 24 hours following injection
- Avoid any facial laser or electrical treatments for 2 weeks following the injection
- Avoid strenuous physical activity for 24 hours following treatment
- Avoid alcoholic beverages for 24 hours following injection
The above are general aftercare guidelines. Your SpaMedica Toronto Juvederm expert will tailor your aftercare program based on your initial consultation.
The results of the injections typically last between nine months to a year following the initial injection. Patients typically return to our SpaMedica clinic in Toronto for follow up treatments, greatly improving the final outcome.
Juvederm contains numbing agents that will ensure that your injection experience is comfortable, and will provide smooth and results that look natural. The results of the procedure are noticeable immediately following treatment, with most patients requiring no more than one procedure. Another great advantage of Juvederm is that the filler is biodegradable, meaning the results of your treatment are completely reversible if you are unsatisfied.
Often candidates will undergo combination therapy at SpaMedica in Toronto with BOTOX® injectables, Fractional lasers and IPL FotoFacial RF and IPL Photofacial colour correction and lasers.
