The 4th of July is just around the corner and you may have already Googled some solutions to hide your signs of aging before that upcoming barbecue with your friends and family. Some of the telltale signs of aging around the face are sunken cheeks and hollows around the eyes. If you want to freshen up your look this season without surgery, talk to one of our Costa Mesa plastic surgeons about Juvéderm. This is one of the most popular fillers on the market and is available at our California plastic surgery practice. The dermal filler will smooth away lines and wrinkles and restore volume to create a more youthful contour of your face. You’ll see results instantly and these injectable filler treatments can be combined with other non-surgical treatments for even better results.
We’ve seen great results with Juvéderm for patients who are concerned about lost facial volume or lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Too much time in the sun and the aging process are to blame for sagging cheeks and collagen loss that leads to wrinkles.
An injectable filler that restores some of that lost volume is able to smooth out the skin and create a fresh, youthful look.
What to Expect with Juvéderm
The treatment itself only takes about 15 minutes and you can expect to see results immediately after your session. We will apply a topical anesthetic to reduce discomfort and any swelling or redness you experience will dissipate within hours of the injection. You can maintain results for six months to a year after the initial injection and will need touch-ups after that —many patients enjoy the fact that their results last for several months at a time! We can even combine Juvéderm with other filler treatments and other injectables like Botox that soften lines and wrinkles in other areas of the face.
You will receive post-treatment care instructions during your consultation so that you can enjoy the best possible results. You will need to avoid alcohol, tanning, and any type of strenuous exercise for 24 hours after treatment.
