Juvéderm

Juvéderm

Used to refresh and regenerate the appearance, JuvédermMD is an injectable dermal filler. It is designed to gently restore the skin’s volume, soften wrinkles and grooves and to slightly plump lips. Contrary to the old methods using collagen and fat injections, JuvédermMD uses hyaluronic acid—a substance naturally present in the human body—to shape the skin. Since the hyaluronic acid contained in the JuvédermMD is created in the laboratory by biosynthesis, there is no need to perform an allergy test prior to the treatment.

JuvédermMD is used to precisely fill the various hollow areas of the entire face. Its effects are noticed over a period of 9 to 12 months. The most common areas of the face that may benefit from dermal fillers are: the cheekbones, the lips, the nasolabial fold and the marionette lines. For a personalized rejuvenation effect, the doctor may recommend that
you combine neuromodulators with dermal fillers.

By replacing the loss of hyaluronic acid, JuvédermMD compensates for the loss of dermal volume.

What do we treat?

Déroulement de la procédure

  1. Assessment of the patient and his/her health status
    To establish the quantity of the dermal filler required, you must express your expectations to your doctor. The cost, frequency, effect, products to use in your daily routine and the required follow-up are some of the aspects you must discuss. During this first meeting, your doctor will inquire about your health status and will suggest a time to start the treatment if not already scheduled for the same day.
  2. Photographs
    Taking pictures to properly visualize the areas affected by the loss of dermal volume, the photos prove to be an excellent reference. They will eventually serve as a way to track the before and after evolution of the treatment.
  3. Procedure plan
    LThe doctor will take into account your age, the quality of your skin and your genetics to get the most natural rejuvenating effect. He can then balance the volume of the face with a combination of treatments, such as dermal fillers and neuromodulators injections (Botox CosmeticMD or Dysport®), applied strategically and proportionately.
  4. JuvédermMD injections
    The doctor injects a predetermined amount of the product using fine needles in the skin or subcutaneous area. Following your treatment, which will take between 15 and 60 minutes, you can resume your regular activities. However, you must refrain from wearing makeup the day of the treatment and avoid exposure to sunlight or cold, saunas, spas and steam baths for 2 weeks.
