Is Juvéderm® Safe?
If you have been looking for treatments to aid in the rejuvenation of skin while smoothing away fine line and wrinkles, you may have come across Juvéderm® filler products. This innovative serum is injected into the face to aid in bringing moisture and elasticity back into the skin. However, you might be wondering, is this treatment that trustworthy? At LightTouch Med Spa we offer Orlando residents and the surrounding community access to professionally administered, reliable and effective fillers. Please read on to learn about this product and its safe application at our facility.
World-Wide Trusted Brand
The Juvéderm® brand is known for its high-quality, safe, and compelling products and is the number one doctor-recommended facial filler in Canada and across the globe. Their product line has undergone extensive clinical testing, and when administered by a skilled practitioner, is well accepted by the skin.
A Natural Ingredient
Juvéderm® is primarily made up of a naturally-occurring substance in the body known as hyaluronic acid. It is our skin cells that create this sugar responsible for maintaining moisture levels in the epidermis and helps to produce collagen, another bodily protein that gives structure to the skin. As the body ages, the creation of hyaluronic acid and collagen depletes, resulting in the typical signs of ageing, such as the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Therefore, using this naturally occurring sugar as the main ingredient in the filler, it is a safe way to obtain the desired results.
Juvéderm® possesses patented technology that allows its products to blend with the tissue under the skin, resulting in a more natural look. The acid works to stimulate collagen production while adding moisture and volume back into the skin, fading wrinkles and adding lost elasticity, resulting in a younger-looking appearance. These positive effects last up to 12 to 18 months.
One of the best things about Juvéderm® fillers is that they are completely reversible. Unlike cosmetic surgery, if you are not pleased with the effects of the injections, you can return to your pre-filler appearance.
As with any form of cosmetic or medical treatment, there are some risks associated with this treatment. After obtaining these injections, symptoms may include slight tenderness, temporary redness, and swelling. Using an ice pack will help to relieve the swelling and discomfort. In 10% of cases, slight bruising will also appear.
Those who have allergies to hyaluronic acid, other filler products, gram-positive bacterial proteins, lidocaine or other local anesthetics should not undergo injections. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have an autoimmune disease, or are taking other medication, it is also not advised to obtain Juvéderm® injections.
As the safety of our patients is paramount, we offer a free consultation for all potential clients interested in the treatments we perform. Upon visiting our med spa for your no-cost meeting, you will sit down with one of our nurses to discuss Juvederm® treatments, your medical history, and other mitigating factors that may affect the treatment and subsequent results.
Once you have undergone this meeting and have chosen to go ahead with Juvederm® fillers, your injections will be handled by a professional and trained nurse who has the knowledge and skill to administer this treatment in a safe and reliable manner. They will determine how many vials of the filler are appropriate and where they should be injected to provide you with the results you are looking for.
