Are you feeling self-conscious about your appearance because of the signs of aging you’ve been noticing? Looking for a way to restore your youthful appearance? At Murphy Plastic Surgery in Englewood, CO, we have a solution for you. Here are some of the benefits you can expect from getting our Juvéderm treatments.
What Are the Benefits of Juvéderm?
There are a lot of dermal fillers and injectable treatments out there, but not all of them are right for everyone. If you want to make sure you’re getting something safe, then you’ll want to talk to your doctor about getting Juvéderm injections.
All products in this lineup are made with hyaluronic acid as the main ingredient. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar naturally present in your body already, including your skin. When it’s injected, it fills in missing space under loose skin to smooth out wrinkles and stimulate collagen production. And because this ingredient is already naturally in your body, it’s safe for almost anyone to get.
When you decide to get this treatment, there will be a few important things to bear in mind in the days before your appointment. We’ll make sure that you have all the information you need to prepare for your injections.
Since certain substances can thin the blood which can cause bruising, for the 24 to 48 hours before your appointment you’ll need to avoid them. This includes alcohol, tobacco, certain supplements like vitamin E, and some over-the-counter medications like aspirin and ibuprofen.
This treatment uses only a fine needle to apply the product. This makes it a minimally invasive treatment option and a fantastic, alternative option to more invasive procedures like surgery. When you arrive at our clinic, we’ll make sure that the entire process is as comfortable and fast for you as possible.
To begin, we’ll clean the skin where you’ll be getting the injections. We’ll then start applying the product, injecting small amounts at a time into strategic areas. This helps us to ensure accuracy. You’ll feel no pain throughout the treatment. As soon as it’s complete, you can leave the clinic.
With many treatment options, especially invasive options, you may find yourself with a lengthy and uncomfortable downtime. Sometimes the recovery process for certain treatments can even be painful. If you’re looking for an alternative, then getting injections of this dermal filler is a perfect choice.
There will just be a handful of things to remember over the next week or so since your skin will be a bit more sensitive than it usually is. Stay away from direct sunlight to avoid burning, and avoid extreme temperatures of any kind. Don’t forget to refrain from strenuous physical activity.
Fill In Your Cheeks
The older you get, the more volume you’re going to lose in your face. This can be particularly evident in your cheeks since they’re naturally one of the most voluminous parts of your face. This can age your appearance and even make it look quite gaunt.
If you don’t like this side effect of aging, you can easily reverse it with this treatment. This filler will put that missing volume back into your cheeks to help them appear fuller and rounder. Additionally, you can also use this treatment as a way to add more definition to your cheekbones.
Tighten Your Jawline
As your cheeks lose volume and your skin loses elasticity, you may notice issues like sagging especially around your jawline. This can result in unwanted signs of aging like jowls forming. This can be a sign of aging that makes people feel particularly self-conscious.
Know that you don’t need to deal with this change forever. Getting this treatment can lift any sagging skin, keeping it firm and wrinkle-free. You’ll notice a major reduction in the appearance of your jowls, and your jawline will look much more defined. You can also use it to reduce chin wrinkles.
Eliminate Laugh Lines
Laugh lines, which are also frequently called smile lines or nasolabial folds, are the parallel lines that will show up between your nose and your mouth. They are caused by a combination of volume loss and your skin becoming less elastic as well as repetitive facial movements.
Some people consider their laugh lines signs that they’ve lived happy lives. Others, however, don’t like the way they age their appearance. If you’d like to get rid of your laugh lines, this injectable could be exactly what you need. Adding more volume to the area will smooth out these folds for a much more youthful appearance.
Fill in Your Lips
Some people lose volume in their lips as they get older, while others simply naturally have thin lips as a result of genetics. Thin lips can give you a very serious appearance that doesn’t match your actual personality.
If you wish your lips were a little fuller, consider getting this treatment. The product will fill in missing space under your skin for fuller, plumper lips. It’s also a good way to make asymmetrical lips appear more even.
Get Rid of Smoker’s Lines
Smoker’s lines, also frequently called lipstick lines, are the fine lines that appear directly on your lips. They can have a significant impact on your appearance.
If you don’t like the way your smoker’s lines are changing the way you look, this treatment is a great option. You’ll love how much fuller and smoother your lips look after getting it.
Get Results Fast
If the cosmetic changes you’ve noticed to your skin as you’ve gotten older are making you feel self-conscious, then you’re probably looking for a treatment option that will get you results quickly. If that’s the case, consider getting this one.
As soon as it’s injected, the product takes up space under your skin, tightening any sagging and smoothing any wrinkles. Over the next week or so, the hyaluronic acid in this filler will continue to work until you see the full effects of your treatment.
Results Last a Long Time
If you’re looking for something that can offer you permanent results, then your doctor may recommend surgery. But not everyone is ready for something as invasive as surgery. This treatment, unlike other injectables, lasts a long time which makes it a great alternative to surgery.
When you get Juvéderm treatments, you can expect your results to last for up to an impressive 2 years. The exact amount of time you can expect to enjoy your results depends on where you receive your injections, which formula you get, and how your skin reacts. Help your results last as long as possible by keeping up with your skincare and maintaining a generally healthy lifestyle.
Results Are Easily Reversible
Most people leave the clinic after receiving their treatment feeling confident and happy with their decision. However, in rare cases, a patient may regret getting the treatment. With many treatment options, these people would have to wait for results to wear off naturally.
That’s not the case with this filler. If you find that you preferred the way you looked before you received treatment, we can easily reverse the effects by injecting an enzyme into your treatment areas. This dissolves the hyaluronic acid in the product and helps you look the way you did before treatment.
Results Look Natural
One of the reasons why so many people love this treatment is that it’s easy to customize to each individual and ensure that results appear natural. When you visit our team, we’ll discuss what kinds of results you’re looking for, and we’ll make sure your results look natural regardless of how subtle or dramatic you want them to be.
Almost Anyone Can Get It
As long as you are not pregnant or breastfeeding, you haven’t been sensitive to similar products in the past and you are not allergic to the painkiller lidocaine, it should be perfectly safe for you to receive this treatment.
The perfect candidate is someone looking for a non-invasive way to look younger and feel more confident in their appearance. Rejuvenate your looks when you receive this easy, non-invasive cosmetic treatment.
