JUVÉDERM® in Tucson, AZ

Fill in Facial Lines and Wrinkles with This Nonsurgical Treatment

Treatment For

Diminishing facial volume in areas of the face.

An important factor in maintaining overall skin health and youthfulness is hyaluronic acid—a substance the body naturally produces and that helps provide nutrients that enable the skin to retain softness, moisture, and volume. As the skin ages, it produces decreasing quantities of hyaluronic acid, making the skin appear older and diminishing facial volume. One treatment method was designed to address this volume loss by delivering hyaluronic acid via an injectable treatment: JUVEDERM®. Tucson patients can benefit from this collection of JUVEDERM® injectable fillers, which include a handful of products designed to address specific areas of the face, from providing volume and shape to the cheeks to filling in lines and wrinkles that form around the mouth, commonly called parenthesis lines.

While volume loss might sound like a mild aspect of aging, a small amount of added volume can accomplish a lot for patients interested in reclaiming some lost youthfulness.

Am I a Good Candidate for JUVEDERM® in Tucson?

Women and men over the age of 18 who are experiencing facial volume loss, including the formation of parentheses lines around the mouth, are potentially good candidates for JUVEDERM®. Patients who are allergic to lidocaine, prone to scarring, pregnant or breastfeeding, or utilizing medication that prolong bleeding might not be good candidates for JUVEDERM®. The method of determining which treatment method will meet your needs is to schedule a consultation with a licensed cosmetic injector at Ironwood Dermatology, who will evaluate your skin and help develop a treatment plan to meet your goals. In addition to the aesthetic benefits of a consultation with a cosmetic injector, proper skin care can help boost overall health and the right skin care routine can even diminish the frequency of aesthetic treatments.

Juvederm® is an FDA-approved dermal filler made of a hyaluronic acid gel that is chemically similar to the liquid form found in our bodies. This dermal filler quite literally "fills" the areas it is injected into, adding volume and smoothing the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and folds. A Juvederm® treatment session can take less than 15 minutes, depending on the number of areas you wish to treat. Once the associated swelling and bruising subside, the treated areas will look smoother and more youthful.

What Can I Expect During a JUVEDERM® Treatment in Tucson, AZ?

A typical JUVEDERM® appointment lasts less than an hour, most of which is spent obtaining the patient's medical history, evaluating the skin for any rashes or damage, and walking the patient through the process.

The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes, beginning with a thorough cleaning of the treatment area. There are several different methods of addressing skin sensitivity, including topical anesthetics. Patients can discuss these options, as well as any preferences, with the injection administrator. Certain JUVEDERM® products contain an anesthetic called lidocaine to help diminish sensitivity.

The number of JUVEDERM® injections administered during a single session depends on the number of areas being treated and the degree of volume loss in those areas. Typically, a session involves two or more injections, after which the patient can resume his or her normal activities. Some patients experience swelling, bruising, discoloration, or itching at the injection site for several days or weeks following treatment. However, such effects are usually mild and diminish with time. Patients can minimize symptoms by avoiding strenuous activity and sun exposure for one day following treatment. Swelling can often be minimized with an ice pack.

While JUVEDERM® patients are satisfied with their results after their first treatment, patients may benefit from additional rounds of JUVEDERM® injections after the first appointment. Results usually last one to two years, after which patients can schedule additional sessions to maintain their results.
