At RefineU MedSpa in Oklahoma City, OK, we offer JUVÉDERM treatments, popular due to their amazing ability to address signs of aging and rejuvenate the face. From reducing fine lines and wrinkles to restoring lost volume and enhancing facial contours, this dermal filler offers a range of benefits to help you achieve a more youthful appearance.
Does JUVÉDERM Work Immediately?
This dermal filler can exhibit immediate effects, as well as some which appear later as the product continues to work. The onset of its action varies depending on factors such as the specific product used and individual body chemistry. Generally, the results become noticeable immediately after treatment.
Once injected into the targeted facial areas, the product swiftly adds volume, fills lines and wrinkles, and restores lost volume, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance. Initial results may include temporary swelling or redness at the injection sites, which is a normal part of the process and typically subsides within a few days. With time, it continues to work by attracting and binding water molecules, enhancing and sustaining the outcomes.
What Factors Affect How Quickly I Will See the Results of My Treatment?
Though some of the results can be seen immediately, several factors influence how quickly you will see your final results. These factors include:
JUVÉDERM offers a range of different products designed for various purposes, such as smoothing wrinkles or adding volume to specific areas. The specific formulation used can affect how quickly you notice the results. Some products may provide more immediate results than others due to their unique characteristics.
Each person’s metabolism is unique, and it can affect how quickly the body responds to this product. Some individuals may experience a faster onset of results, while others may take a little longer to see the full effects.
The location of the treatment also plays a role in how quickly you see the results. In areas with thinner skin, such as the lips, the effects may be more noticeable immediately. In areas with thicker skin, like the cheeks, it may take a bit longer for the full effects to become apparent.
The skill and technique of the healthcare professional administering the treatment can impact the outcome of your result. All our experienced injectors at RefineU MedSpa understand the ins and outs of facial anatomy and know how to distribute the filler evenly to help ensure optimal results.
Aftercare and Healing
Following the treatment, proper aftercare is essential. We will give you a number of aftercare instructions, such as avoiding excessive touching or applying makeup to the treated area, which help promote healing and ensure the best possible results.
It’s important to have realistic expectations and understand that individual results may vary. The timeline for seeing the full effects of your treatment can range from immediate improvement to a week or two as any initial swelling subsides and the filler settles into place.
How Can I Ensure the Longevity of My Treatment?
To ensure the longevity of your treatment and maximize its effectiveness, consider the following tips:
Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle
A healthy lifestyle can contribute to the longevity of your treatment. Practice good skincare habits, including cleansing, moisturizing, and using a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily to protect your skin. Stay hydrated, eat a balanced diet, and get enough sleep to support your overall skin health.
Consider Touch-up Treatments
Depending on the specific JUVÉDERM product used and your individual response, you may benefit from periodic touch-up treatments. Consult with your healthcare professional to determine the recommended timeframe for touch-ups to maintain your desired results.
Avoid Extreme Heat or Cold
Exposing the treated area to extreme heat or cold, such as saunas, steam rooms, or ice packs, immediately after the treatment can potentially affect the filler’s longevity. It’s best to avoid such activities for a few days following your treatment.
Manage Stress Levels
High levels of stress can negatively impact your overall health, including the condition of your skin. Find healthy ways to manage stress, such as exercise, meditation, or engaging in activities you enjoy. Minimizing stress can contribute to maintaining the results of your treatment, and preventing new worry lines from developing.
What JUVÉDERM Products Do We Offer?
One of the great things about this range of products is that it includes various fillers that are designed to address different cosmetic concerns. Some of the products that we offer include:
This filler is commonly used to add volume to the lips and smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the lines that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth).
Ultra Plus XC
Similar to JUVÉDERM Ultra XC, this filler is used for adding volume to the lips and correcting deeper facial wrinkles and folds.
This filler is specifically formulated to restore volume to the cheeks and mid-face region, providing a more youthful and lifted appearance. It can also be used to enhance the chin area.
This filler is designed to add subtle volume to the lips and smooth vertical lip lines, also known as perioral lines or smoker’s lines.
This filler is used to soften moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds, marionette lines (lines that extend from the corners of the mouth downward), and other facial wrinkles.
Each filler in the JUVÉDERM range has unique characteristics and is formulated with varying concentrations of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that provides hydration and volume. The specific filler used will depend on the treatment area and the desired outcome. When you consult with us, we can recommend the most suitable filler for your specific needs.
What Makes a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
Good candidates typically include those who:
Want To Reduce the Appearance of Facial Wrinkles, Lines, and Folds
This product can effectively address moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
Want To Add Volume to Specific Areas
JUVÉDERM can restore lost volume in areas like the cheeks or lips, providing a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Seek To Enhance Facial Contours
This dermal filler can be used to augment and define facial features, such as the lips or chin.
Have Realistic Expectations
It’s important for candidates to have realistic expectations about the outcome of their treatment. This dermal filler can provide significant improvements and lessen a number of the signs of aging, but it’s not a permanent solution.
Are in Good Overall Health
Candidates should be in good general health and not have any active infections or skin conditions in the treatment area. If you do have any active infections in the area you wish to be treated, this does not disqualify you in the long term, but you will have to wait until it has cleared up before you can take advantage of this dermal filler.
Have No Known Allergies to the Ingredients in JUVÉDERM
This product is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body, so is generally well tolerated by the majority of prospective patients. However, individuals with a known allergy to hyaluronic acid or other ingredients in this filler should avoid the treatment.
Are Not Pregnant or Breastfeeding
The safety of this product during pregnancy or breastfeeding has not been established, so it’s generally recommended to wait before embarking on treatment.
We will be able to assess your suitability for treatment when you come to us for an initial consultation. It’s vital that you disclose any medical conditions, medications you are taking, and other factors that may be relevant. Rest assured, even if you are not a good candidate for this treatment, there may be a number of other options suitable to achieving your aesthetic goals.
