Juvederm in Sacramento

Juvederm is a type of dermal filler used to diminish age-related nasolabial folds (smile lines around the nose and the mouth), marionette lines and vertical lip lines. It can also be used to plump the eyebrows and provide subtle contouring around the nose for an enhanced and youthful look. Juvederm is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in connective tissues of the human body. It works by replenishing the body's dwindling supply of this substance.

Juvederm Candidacy

Juvederm is safe for most individuals who are generally healthy and have realistic expectations of what Juvederm can accomplish. Because Juvederm is made of a naturally occurring substance and does not contain any animal proteins, it is considered hypoallergenic, and no skin test is required prior to treatment. In order to ensure maximum safety and optimal results, Charles Perry, MD, carefully screens every patient prior to performing any cosmetic procedure.

What You Should Know Before Receiving Juvederm

Juvederm Results

Juvederm Ultra results are immediate and may last from six to 12 months. The results of Juvederm Ultra Plus, used to treat more severe facial wrinkles and lines, may last longer. Although Juvederm is not the only hyaluronic acid-based filler, it is among the most popular due to its smooth, gel-like consistency that allows it to be easily injected into the skin.

Juvederm Allows for Combination Treatments

For best aesthetic results, Juvederm can be combined with Botox. This combination treatment is excellent for Dr. Perry's Juvederm patients seeking to restore facial volume, enhance the lips and treat facial wrinkles and lines, all at the same time.

How Is Juvederm Administered?

Juvederm is injected into the skin via a syringe. After identifying specifics treatment areas, Dr. Perry first applies a topical numbing lotion, then administers Juvederm. Total treatment time may last between 20 to 30 minutes, after which patients are free to return to their daily activities.

Juvederm is a harmless substance that is injected into the skin to replenish and fill in lost facial volume. Any complications associated with Juvederm are generally related to the injection rather than the product.
