Why Portland, OR patients love antiaging treatment with Juvéderm injections
Juvéderm injections are among the most requested cosmetic treatments in Portland, OR. This popular dermal filler is made by Allergan, the company that brought us Botox. What makes it so popular? There are many answers to that question.
Effective wrinkle treatment
As facial volume disappears, wrinkles begin to appear. At first, you might notice a few lines and a bit of saggy skin. Gradually, well defined folds develop, including those surrounding the mouth like parenthesis. Juvéderm XC is FDA-approved for correction of these unwelcome parentheses, as well as marionette lines, which extend to the chin.
Benefits beyond anti-aging
Juvéderm is best known for correcting age-related volume loss. However, it is also a great option for:
- Adding volume to naturally thin lips
- Correcting asymmetry or disproportion of facial features
- Filling in deep acne scars
- Virtually anywhere additional volume is needed
Natural looking results
We understand the importance of subtle details in cosmetic treatment. No one wants to look like a sculpture, with rigid or disproportionate features. Instead, you want to look natural, relaxed, and young. Juvéderm is an ultra-smooth gel that can add volume while maintaining elegant and natural looking facial contours.
Ideal complementary treatment
Did you have Botox injections to erase those stubborn crow’s feet and forehead lines? Now your upper face looks years younger, but the lower area tells a different story. A dermal filler such as Juvéderm is the perfect solution to this common situation. Because fillers and Botox address different types of wrinkles, they make wonderful companion treatments for comprehensive anti-aging.
Does your work schedule and social calendar have room for a couple weeks of downtime? If the answer is a resounding, “No,” then Juvéderm is probably a great choice! This ultra-convenient procedure takes just minutes to administer, and it allows you to resume your life immediately. Common side effects may include swelling, redness, or bruising, but they are generally mild and fade within a few days. Since Juvéderm is nonsurgical and leaves no wounds to heal, the visible effects can safely be hidden with makeup.
You know you want to look younger, and cosmetic treatment sounds like a great idea. Yet, it’s hard to be certain, especially if you are new to fillers. Many first time Juvéderm patients ask what happens if they don’t like the results. The answer is simple. They can be reversed. Any hyaluronic acid filler, including Juvéderm, can be dissolved with subsequent injections of hyaluronidase. While this fact is comforting to uncertain new patients, they tend to lose interest in reversal as soon as they experience the beauty of Juvéderm. Instead, they begin asking how they can extend the results, which brings us to the next great benefit of this treatment.
Juvéderm injections are usually expected to last up to one full year, though every patient metabolizes fillers at a different rate. Your results may last a little longer or fade a little sooner. However, it is easy to maintain your new youthful appearance with touch up treatments. These are scheduled according to your specific needs.
Most patients prefer needles over scalpels. However, you might not expect injections to be a very comfortable process. Juvéderm XC has a special ingredient that is designed to literally take the pain out of wrinkle treatment. The formula contains a small amount of Lidocaine, a local anesthetic that numbs the area as it is injected.
One dermal filler can’t do everything. A malleable, subtle formula is ideal for delicate lip augmentation, while correction of sunken cheeks requires a formula resilient enough to hold its shape even in deep injections. Whatever your needs, Juvéderm has you covered! This is not just one filler. It is a whole collection of premier formulas, including
- Voluma XC
- Volbella XC
- Vollure XC
- Ultra XC
- The original, Juvéderm XC
Experienced providers are just a phone call away
