Juvederm Injections in Tampa
If you want a more refreshed, rejuvenated face that turns the clock back a few years while also making you look well-rested, consider a Juvéderm treatment. This non-surgical alternative to a facelift uses an injectable gel with a smooth consistency that promotes collagen and elastin production, resulting in plumper skin that smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles for a beautiful, more youthful look.
How Does Juvéderm Work?
Juvéderm gel consists of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance that draws fluid to the injection site. It works to hydrate and add volume to the area, which causes a plumping effect that fills in wrinkles and lines. Results last at least six months after treatment.
The Benefits of Juvéderm
- FDA approved
- Quick, painless treatment
- Little or no downtime
- Immediate, natural-looking results
What Juvéderm Can Accomplish
Juvéderm is effective in smoothing out moderate to severe facial wrinkles, including “crow’s feet” around the eyes, “11” lines between the brows, “marionette lines” around the nose and mouth and deep folds between the cheek and nose.
Am I a Good Candidate for Juvéderm?
Considering a Juvederm treatment to rid your face of fine lines and wrinkles? You may be a good candidate for treatment if you:
- Are in good overall health
- Have fine lines, wrinkles and/or deep folds on your face
- Have thin lips that have lost volume due to aging
- Have sunken eye sockets or cheekbones
The Juvéderm Treatment
A Juvéderm treatment takes about 30 minutes and a local anesthetic is used to numb the injection site. Dr. Aparna Ambay will inject the smooth gel into the injection area. Results are seen immediately, as wrinkles will immediately be smoothed out by the plumping effect of the treatment. The patient can immediately return to work and other normal daily activities immediately following treatment.
After a Juvéderm treatment, there may be some initial soreness in the area where the gel has been injected. There may also be a small amount of swelling or feeling of firmness in the area, though this typically subsides in less than a week. Some patients may also experience mild bruising, though this is rare and can typically be covered by makeup. There is no downtime or recovery necessary after treatment, so the patient is able to return to work and other activities immediately and to regular exercise within a day or two of treatment. Sun exposure should be avoided for the first 24 hours, to help with any swelling or redness.
