Unsightly wrinkles around the nose and lips can cause you to appear older before your time. At Marcus Medical in Redondo Beach, we routinely use Juvederm to combat these prominent signs of aging, restoring a youthful overall look.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is an injectable gel designed to treat lines and wrinkles around the nose and lips. It continuously plumps and draws moisture to the skin, improving the look of any creases and creating a smooth and youthful facial appearance. It is a popular filler not only because the results endure for up to one year, but also because the gel sits evenly underneath the skin, ensuring an extremely natural-looking result.
How Does Juvederm Work?
Throughout the natural aging process, our facial skin loses its ability to restore its own hyaluronic acid – a key component that maintains moisture in our cells and contributes to the appearance of a supple and youthful complexion. With an active ingredient of hyaluronic acid, Juvederm works by temporarily replenishing your body’s lost supply of this important component, helping you to restore your youthful look.
What Can I Expect During Juvederm Treatments?
Our highly trained specialists are experts at administering Juvederm to ensure natural-looking results. During your initial consultation, we will carefully evaluate your facial anatomy and signs of aging as a whole, before composing a custom treatment plan designed to use the filler to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose as subtly as possible.
During the actual injections for your Juvederm in Manhattan Beach, we will administer the filler with a very small needle directly into the problem areas, such as your smile lines, vertical lip lines, chin wrinkles and marionette lines. And, because Juvederm is formulated with a built-in anesthetic, the entire procedure will be virtually pain-free.
Is there Any Downtime Associated With the Treatment?
After Juvederm injections, it’s important to avoid touching or massaging the treatment area for a few days to ensure an optimal result. Clients are also advised to avoid exposure to extreme heat, cold and sun for up to two weeks following their injections. Beyond those guidelines, there is virtually no downtime associated with Juvederm, and most individuals are able to resume their normal activities immediately.
Am I a Candidate for Juvederm?
At Marcus Medical, we’re committed to personalized care, and we only administer fillers if it’s truly in the client’s best interest. As such, we determine candidacy for all of our treatments on an individual basis, following a thorough discussion of your cosmetic goals, concerns and desires. However, individuals of all skin types and ethnic groups may be considered candidates for Juvederm if they are at least 18 years of age and wish to treat moderate to severe wrinkles around the nose and mouth region without undergoing an invasive surgical procedure.
Following your Juvederm treatments, your results will be apparent immediately with a visible improvement in the appearance of smile lines, vertical lip lines, chin wrinkles and marionette lines. Thanks to our staff’s refined injection technique, you can also expect your youthful results to appear extremely natural and organic – never overdone.
