As your skin ages, it will gradually lose volume and elasticity. This inevitable process causes problems like facial wrinkles, lines and folds. Today we are fortunate to have quick and easy treatments that can treat these unwanted effects. Fillers like Juvederm are proven to correct wrinkles for 6 months to 1 year, and there’s no downtime or surgery involved.
With Juvederm, we can treat:
- Smile lines and laugh lines
- Thin or flat lips
- Deep facial folds
Juvederm is the ideal treatment for patients who want to look younger, but don’t have time for cosmetic surgery. If you’re considering an injectable filler for the first time, read our frequently asked questions and then contact our office in Toronto to learn more.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a wrinkle filler made with hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance present in your tissue. HA is essential for hydrating, protecting and cushioning the cells in your tissue. It’s a critical component that maintains youthful volume in your skin.
What can Juvederm treat?
The most common treatment is the correction of nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines. We can also use Juvederm at our offices in Toronto & Oshawa, ON to correct marionette lines, lip lines, thin lips and flat cheeks.
How does it work?
This 30-minute treatment is brief and tolerable. We begin by cleansing the treatment site and applying a numbing cream. A precise injection into the wrinkle is followed by a brief massage of the area to ensure smooth results.
What happens after treatment?
You can return to your routine immediately. But you may experience some short term swelling, tenderness or redness. You can apply ice (indirectly) to the treated areas and swelling will subside quicker. The results last up to one year as your body naturally breaks down the filler.
Are there any possible side effects?
Possible side effects include redness, swelling and bruising. When you visit our Toronto office, we’ll review specific product labeling for Juvederm so you are fully informed of all possible side effects.
